If you are indifferent towards either companies' exclusives, you aren't a social gamer so not picking a team based on that (or your friends don't have either console), and media features aren't a concern, the PS4 is the best choice.

The one factor to think about however is if you already have a decent PC and don't care for exclusives, a BluRay player is likely all you need as PC is the best platform for multiplats between all three so there is not any real benefit over a simple network capable BluRay player.

If you want a pure gaming box for that room though the PS4 fits it best.

I'm not too familiar with the nextgen consoles, so I can't say anything except pick the one you'll have the most fun from, either by ergomonics, exclusive, or friends...or get both and compare for yourself. But unless Microsoft adds game streaming support between the Xbox One and the XBox app within Windows 8 (to compete with Steam), the PS4 wins public opinion hands down.

Yeah i tend to get exclusives on PC, but i think ill be making a choice closer to if Gran Turismo 7 comes out, i've bought every game in that series, and i still own them all.

I've got a PS4 and also own PS3 and XBox 360. I haven't found a reason to get XBox One yet, but may do so in future depending on exclusives and it's media centre features.

If you are also intending to use it as a media centre, you should also consider what media formats can either of the consoles support, eg XBox One can apparently now play mkvs (http://www.wired.co....16/xbox-updated).

Also, XBox One supports external storage (ie via plugin usb drive), but PS4's internal hard drive be easily upgraded whereas Xbox can't. Ref to http://au.ign.com/wi...omparison_Chart for detail comparison.
