Anyone looking to buy a new games console will have quite a few complicated questions to answer. One is whether the Xbox one or PS4 is better for a family. Read this guide to discover which one you should buy. 

Connectivity

The Xbox One has many more connection options than the PS4. The PS4 has only two USB ports, a HDMI port and camera connector on the back. However, the Xbox One has a Kinect port, HDMI in port, IR Blaster and network port.

Kid Friendly Games

Both the PS4 and Xbox have many of the same games. For example, Just dance, a family friendly game is available for both consoles. However, the Xbox is more suited to such games because of the Kinect sensor.

The Kinect sensor allows your kids to play games without needing to hold a controller. This means that even young children can join in with the games.

Power

Both the PS4 and Xbox are powerful modern consoles. The Xbox has a more powerful CPU, but the PS4 has a more powerful GPU. This means that the consoles have very similar graphics and speed.

Size

The PS4 is quite a bit smaller than the original Xbox one. However, Microsoft has recently released a new refreshed version of the Xbox One called Xbox One S. This is smaller and features 4K video quality as standard.

Value for Money

Anyone with a family will be trying to save as much money as possible. Both the Xbox one and PS4 are similar prices. They are both on the market for a little over £200 and both offer similar features. If you would like to compare some prices then I would recommend using a catalogue comparison site. When looking through the catalogues make sure you find the best catalogue which suits you. Some catalogues offer consoles on finance because they are an expensive purchase.

Which one is Best?

There’s no right or wrong answer as to which one you choose. Both consoles are similar in quality, game play and speed. Most of the games are available for both consoles, although there are some exclusive games for specific consoles.
