In the past it was Atari vs Intellivision, then it became Nintendo vs Sega. Eventually it became Sega vs Nintendo vs Sony. Eventually Sega dropped out of the Console wars and Nintendo and Sony continued their gruelling fight while Microsoft got ready to release the Xbox and joined the war with the Xbox. Up to this day Sony and Microsoft have continued the war, it has been a long gruelling war that has either annoyed gamers to death or has benefited gamers because of all the new material they get from the noisy bantering and constant development of unique games that would coax you to either buy an Xbox or a Playstation. Now the Sixth Generation of Consoles is nearing its death, as the Xbox One, PS4 and Wii U have arrived to take the stand. Though Nintendo has always been counted in the Console Wars, they have sort of taken a backseat as they have always long have had a relatively high sustaining level of sales that has kept it as one of the top corporations in the world. So because of this most of the focus of the “wars” has jumped to the fight between the Sony and Microsoft. a product that is primarily due to the hype built up by the developers which has long resulted in raging forums; harsh comments and strangely childish men declaring their “allegiance” to either console.
Nevertheless the Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Generation of Consoles have passed and the Eighth Generation has entered the fray, it won’t be long until the Seventh Generation breaths its last and becomes forever remembered as a Classic relic of an age long past. But the Eighth Generation has arrived, opening up gamers to another war that will continue until people have forgotten it and that is the war between the PS4 and the Xbox One. It is without a doubt that the PC and the Wii U gaming community have simply enjoyed watching the two destroy each other, but even though the two have very distinct features it is rather obvious that because of the amazing exclusives that both the PS4 and the Xbox One possess.
The Xbox has an exclusive that has long been regarded as a definitive representative of the console, and that is the Halo Series specifically the upcoming Halo V. Halo has been regarded as one of the greatest shooters ever made; it features a faceless character whose facelessness has allowed him to be regarded as a very selfless and sympathetic hero. The armament of Halo is also extremely interesting and its highly focused game play has earned its reputation. Its spin offs and prequels have also been filled with emotion that has defined it.
The PlayStation 4 on the other hand has many exclusives and that is its greatest selling point, but among its exclusives the Killzone series is popular for its status as a shooter with a convincing atmosphere and of course excellent game play. Killzone 4 was released in the PS4 as one of its launch titles and it has been lauded for its extremely pretty graphics, which is so far defining the strength of the PS4.
