The History Of The Playstation VS Xbox Rivalry (Sony VS Microsoft Consoles)

  • Published on Jan 20, 2019
    SUBSCRIBE NOW to The Gamer! Click here:
    It’s a battle of titans. Two of the most celebrated consoles in the modern gaming era, Sony’s Playstation and Microsoft’s Xbox, have been at each other's throats for a long while and that’s putting it mildly. Though Sony has often come out on top, Microsoft has never gone down easy, being the underdog in this rare situation. This has gone on for decades, starting right at the beginning of the new millennium.
    Throughout the years, the two have pulled out all the stops. Microsoft has kept their eyes on taking Sony down, while Sony in turn have done all they can to keep their number one spot. Sometimes, this works and other times it ends in disaster. The rivalry still wages on, however, and with the future of the consoles still in the air, it’s important to look back and see how this all began and how it progressed throughout the years.

      PS4 only has more sells because it’s cheaper but PS4 does not have better graphics. Xbox has over 60fps and the 360 had WAAAAAYYYY more sells than the ps3/🗑

    At first when i was younger i used to play on the Sega then i bought the PS2 and it was amazing!(at the time it was 1 year old and i was like 9 of 8)Then the hype began for the PlayStation 3... I couldnt afford it since i didn't work myself and my dad said i needed to pay bit more then half the price. Then one day my father came home with an Xbox 360 kinect and it was amazing!(no ring of death) It was like the Wii but better! Few years later all my Friends where playing Xbox so i bought the Xbox one so i could play with them. Im old enough to see how much *BS* there is in console war, because at the end they are the same with just a few pros and cons.
