PS4 vs. Xbox One and physical vs. digital games

There is not long to go before we get to see if the wait has been worth it for gamers; yes we can only be talking about the Sony PS4 and the Microsoft Xbox One. This will be the start of a whole new gaming generation, and we already know this will be a console war like never seen before because of how gaming has evolved and how soon after each other they will be released.

We have come across a great video that looks at the PS4 vs. Xbox One and physical vs. digital games from one of our favorite guys on YouTube, and that is Blunty. He might not be to everyone’s taste, but we love his rants

In the video he makes a huge point of how this new generation of consoles will not be all about graphical prowess, as the leap forward is not as obvious as we have seen in the past. Instead of concentrating on just one aspect, which is graphics and process power, Sony and Microsoft have focused on a range of much-needed features to make their consoles far more complete.

Both console makers know how important it was for gamers to share their gameplay online and in the past it was not a simple task, and would often come out not looking or sounding 100 percent. However, Blunty explains that with the PS4 and the Xbox One any idiot can upload their gameplay with ease. He is not being disrespectful, he is just explaining how easier it is.

However, he believes the most important thing to come along is digital downloads, and while this already exists with current generation consoles, now every game will be available to purchase on disc or as a digital download. He does go into a rant about how Microsoft keeps changing their mind, but it is clear we are slowly being weaned off physical games and gently eased into a world where we will just have digital downloads.

The question Blunty asks is “are you going to miss discs” because he knows some gamers will embrace digital downloads, whereas others much prefer to have a huge collection of games on shelves at home.

We’d love to have your opinion, and what you think of Blunty’s rant as well?
