X Box One or PS4?

We have a Wii U but my six year old has all but outgrown it. She got through the first four worlds of Super Mario World 3D in less than four hours last Christmas Day and she's mastered every title I've purchased since.

I'm not a gamer and don't really plan to play, other than with her (and she'll beat me nearly every time, which isn't really much fun) so it's really for her.

Which platform is better? It "seems" like most, if not all of the games, are available on both systems. She will not be connected to the internet so that type of game play will not be a factor.

Thanks for any suggestions in advance!

PS4 is your pure gaming console.

XB1 is the swiss army knife of consoles. It does a lot of different things outside of just gaming.

If its just for games, go PS4.

If you want something to change channels for you, control your tv, do internet or Skype on your tv, as well as play games then XB1 might be something youd be interested in.

I don't need the extras of X Box One but there are better deals right now on it as opposed to Playstation 4.

Does X Box One recognize all X box games? Are the Playstation games specific to the system or will Playstation 3 play the same games as Playstation 4?

Sorry for the noob questions.

Neither system is backwards compatible Dane. Stupid but the way it is.

I would go with the PS4 but I am biased as well. For the record, I used to like the xbox 360 but switched to the PS3 and never looked back.

What are the advantages of a PS4 vs. PS3? It appears that games are still available for PS3. Will that stop at some point?

It seems silly that they aren't backwards compatible. The Wii U plays Wii games and it's a bit surprising that these other consoles aren't. I guess that's how they get you to keep buying consoles?

well, really the Wii U is still just a Wii. all they really did was update the graphic engine and add a new type of controller. The PS4 and Xbox One were complete redesigns from the ground up. The only way they could be backwards compatible is with emulation. Neither company wants to do that but Sony is putting a huge selection of PS3 games in the cloud that can be played on the Playstation Now streaming service.

as far as PS3 or PS4, if you are just looking for kids games you could probably keep her entertained for a long time just on the PS3 (or xbox 360). Just a matter if you want to be able to get her any of the new games when they come out. I think MS and Sony will be dropping their old consoled within the next year. They'll support them but not make new games for them.

Okay, awesome. This is great information! I just need to decide if I want to drop $399 on PS4 vs. $329 on an X Box with a $50 dollar gift card.

Thanks!

She's only six, so no online. We don't allow her online with the Wii U, either. We used or allow her to watch YouTube on her own, until she saw some things not for a 5 year old's eyes, due to poor meta data.

Fortunately, Netflix has plenty of kids shows. It's worth $7.99 a month even if she's the only person using it.

I'm seeing bundled X Box with specific games for $329 and a $50 dollar gift card for more games.

About the only game I'd be interested in would be Madden. I assume it's the same game regardless of platform?

yeah, its the same regardless of console.

as far as online goes, PS4 is 10 bucks cheaper than xbox. Just FYI for future reference.

Okay, thanks. I can't really foresee a time when we allow the girls to have online access but that's good to know.

The systems are literally the same. Like 1 or 2 percent difference in specs.

if it is just for the kid there will be no difference. If you play, find out what your friends have.

you cannot go wrong either way.
