Sometime ago, I ran a poll on my Twitter account asking people to choose between the two most popular gaming systems that I didn't already own. (I have a PC, and I've bought myself a Switch, so I left those options out). The choice was unanimous - Sony's PlayStation was the winner. I, however, am still not sure. Maybe, at some stage, I may be able to buy both. I have reasons why I like each of them.
For a start, the XBox One S has a special Minecraft edition, in which the box is made to look like a block of grass. The controller has a Creeper design, but you can also buy the Pig controller, which is pink and even has a curly tail at the back. Special editions are not unusual in the console world, but I've loved Minecraft since I first played it, so it would be special to have a console related to it.
Both consoles have their exclusives - games that can only be played on one console. But most of the games I am interested in are on both, so that isn't really a consideration for me. Perhaps in the future it might matter, if a game is released as an exclusive that I really want. Most games I like end up on PC anyway.
I am still thinking about it. I would like to stream games in the future, so a capture card will be another item I would need. So if someone could toss a million dollars or so my way, that would be great! Otherwise, what do you think? PlayStation or XBox? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this.
