Xbox one vs PS4

​​ ​​
Xbox one versus PS4 is one of the most biggest rivals out there, Xbox one and PS4 combined with a whopping one hundred twenty-four million sales! But the biggest question for these consoles is “Which one is better? Xbox one, or Playstation 4?” Were are going to compare Graphics, Design,and Controllers. I will count out on the way. 

4K is becoming a normal thing for this time of electronics and consoles. But what has better graphics, Xbox one or PS4? The ps4 graphics card currently is the Radeon HD 7850, the current best selling graphics card for the ps4 on the market. Ps4 has a light contrast to blend in with actual reality. Xbox one however, has lower graphics than a PS4. PS4 is actually closer to 4k gaming than Xbox one. Yes, Xbox one is known for outstanding graphics, but PS4 graphics are just simply better, this point goes to PS4. Though the new xbox one s Has added 4k casting and ultra hd movies and shows, Ps4 is still better 4k gaming wise.

Controllers, the whole reason of why our characters move or the reason you are able to navigate throughout the the console. Controllers are essentially the key to most games. But which controller is better? Dualshock 4 controllers, or XBOX 1 controllers. The Dualshock 4 controller for ps4 has a slim and thin look into it, with a light bar, thumbsticks next to each other, with vibrating too, on the other hand, XBOX 1 controller has a fat design into it. It has a shining x as the home button. One pad in the top left and another one in the bottom right. It also has a grip behind the controller. Yeah it may look like a tie but something the xbox lacks a lot is the use of wired chargers. They still use AA batteries? PS4 doesn’t use double a batteries but we have to admit, the xbox controller if FAR way more comfortable than a ps4 controller with a smooth texture on the handles and the back, and thumb pads with a smooth texture as well. Though the xbox lacks stuff like touchpad and and motion moving, Xbox gets the point for sure.

Before hardcore gamers get a console, they look at graphics, hardware, etc. but some basic gamers look at the design and then decide which looks cooler and then buy the cooler looking product. PS4 has a cool light bar across the console, orange for rest mode, white for on, and blue for turning on. Ps4 is like 2 blocks stacked on top of each other and then the begging part was sliced. PS4 gives it a futuristic look into the console. Meanwhile XBOX 1’s design is basically a block with a glossy black to it and fan on top. The xbox button to turn the console on is a white x. I think we can all tell that the PS4 has a more advanced look. This point goes to PS4
Xbox and PS are both wonderful generations of consoles. Yeah, the xbox lost, but xbox one still has many more things that actually beat out the ps4. This is including the new Xbox one X,  4K streaming (not gaming) etc. But when it comes to Xbox one vs PS4, PS4 actually wins by a bunch. If you care about the graphics and overall coolness of electronics, get the PS4. But if you just wanna sit back and be comfortable with a slight cheaper console with almost the same details as PS4, get the Xbox one. I myself have a PS4.

Getting addicted to Video games

What can video games do to you?

Kids a lot of time get addicted to video games way to much. Other people say that getting addicted to games is like getting addicted to drugs. It could do bad things to you like drugs. People get addicted to games to much that it is bad. Most people that play video games get obese because they aren’t doing any other activities. We can stop this by having these gamers do other stuff and not play video games all the time. Go do stuff fun outside or just do a daily workout so you can get fit. Getting addicted to games is bad and you should stop when you think that you are doing it to much.
Don’t you think that some people get to addicted to games? It could happen to anyone if they have nothing to do and that game is very addicting. It is not a good thing to do. You can get into bad shape and have less social time with friends. Playing games to much can damage you.


Why do kids get addicted to video games?

One of the main reasons that video games can become so addictive is they are designed to be that way. Video game maker are always looking for ways to get more people playing their games. Too much gaming may seem relatively harmless compared with the dangers of a drug overdose, but Bakker says video game addiction can ruin lives. Children who play four to five hours per day have no time for socializing, doing homework, or playing sports. Addiction to video games is being considered for upcoming editions of the DSM, but for now it is not recognized as an official clinical problem. Regardless of its unofficial status, there is little question that some individuals (whether they are kids, teenagers, or adults) play video games excessively and that video game addiction can create problems in other important areas of their lives. Although there is a common sense assumption that kids who play video games do worse in school, the research generally does not support this conclusion! Simply being interested in and playing video games does not appear to negatively affect school performance. Most kids can play video games without becoming addicted and their academic grades do not suffer as a result of occasional play.

It has a interesting MyCareer mode, fun Play Now modes where you can play VS friends, a MyTeam mode which allows you to collect players and make your fantasy team, and play against other peoples my team. Most popular, the MyPark mode which allows you to take your created player online and play others in a street ball game.To conclude the critics say that Nba 2k17 is one of the best games of all time. In my opinion the game is good but it could be better. Lets see what they do next.
