New Gaming System

I'm debating on buying a new system-- I've been an xbox person my whole life, but recently I was at my brothers place and he has an PS4. We were playing GTA and it was so cool, in story mode the police make their radio calls through your controller, and the lights flash red and blue when you have any star rating/ or are wanted by the police. 
I haven't had a system for 2-3 years, but what are your guys thoughts? I posted this in Playstation but open to hearing everyone's opinions on which system they prefer and why.

It's awesome on the PS4. Like you, I love how the controller flashes red and blue when you are being chased by the police and I love that when your phone (in-game) rings and someone talks through it, you hear it via your controller. I would suggest you get the PS4, it's a great console and has some great exclusives on it as well.

The PS4 is a very good console. I have the xbox one but that is because I didn't think my purchase through and just bought the new xbox cause I had the 360 and was hoping the same games would get remade for the one. Well, that isn't the case. If I could go back, I'd have a PS4 because of the controllers and because Playstation has always been better than xbox.

I don't game online though so that may be different depending on if you game online.

I have to say, the way Rockstar took advantage of some of the cool things with the PlayStation 4 controller was amazing. Like you said, when the police are chasing you, you can hear all their radio chatter through the controller. Watch Dogs 2 does the same thing actually. But what's even better is that when the police in GTA 5 are chasing you, the light bar on the controller flashes red and blue which is a nice touch. I'm not sure about the online service but the games available for the PS4 are great. It's a tough one really because it depends on your choices as well. I kind of reget not getting an Xbox One because of the fact they have Sea of Thieves.

The playstation has better specs than the Xbox One X, please the image here comparing the microsoft consoles to the sony. I've always been a Xbox Fan boy, the microsoft consoles have a improved online experience, your electric bill will be lower by using an Xbox, and a PS4 is more expensive.

I don't really much about them - but it appears all the consoles have an equal number of games and equal amount of fun. Anyway, the main difference is that certain consoles have games unique to them. You know, like how Mario is only made for Nintendo.

I've know I have already replied with my two cents to this discussion but I wanted an update. Have you switched to the PS4? How much did you pay total with tax for the PlayStation? Have you been able to successfully sell the 360 to an fellow gamer?

Not to hijack the thread but my brother just got his PS4 from Wal-Mart for like $299 (+$23 tax). There were Black Friday bundles for much less though (much avowed $199 Spiderman PS4 being one).
