It can be a big game-changer when the latter outsells the former. But that’s likely to happen when Microsoft’s so-called “most powerful” console gets some first-party games to make it a good choice when it launches later this year. While both of the consoles do run at 4K, they do have these differences that can make you want the system.

However, here are the 3 major things why the PS4 Pro will surely outsell the most-powerful console this generation.

PricingIt’s clear that with more features and beefy hardware, you would expect a price-point of about $499/$500. But in console tradition, which Sony did learn from their past mistake with the PS3’s pricing, it should be an affordable gaming system. PS4 Pro shines at a $399 price tag, and most likely will have a price drop for $50-$75 when Microsoft’s sleeping giant wakes up later this year.

For a $499/500 price, the Xbox One X is not really “true” 4K as what Microsoft initially advertised. Why do I dare say this? When Microsoft announced that the Xbox One X will deliver true 4K, all of us expected that all of its games will run at native 4K at a frame-rate target of either 30FPS or 60FPS, but it seems that Xbox One X can’t handle third-party demanding games like Assassin’s Creed Origins and Anthem as both of the games will use the checkboard rendering technique that the PS4 Pro has taken advantage of.


Diverse First-Party LibraryOne of the reason why we pick up a console is its exclusives. Microsoft has yet to announce their new IPs and sequels anytime soon (probably at Gamescom), but will it be something new? We hope so, but in this current state, Sony has a lot of first-party titles coming which includes Spider-Man, Detroit: Become Human, Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding, Days Gone, God of War, and The Last of Us Part II. Should I list some more, including its released titles like Horizon: Zero Dawn? I don’t actually have to.

Games like NiOh, Gravity Rush 2, and Horizon: Zero Dawn have proven its quality and Sony’s first-party studios have been pretty consistent with its quality. Unlike Microsoft’s ReCore, it didn’t do well unfortunately.


PlayStation VRThe cheapest and cost-efficient piece of VR equipment you can have this generation that definitely takes advantage of the PS4 Pro’s power. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard took this opportunity to make use of the hardware. Ace Combat 7 will also feature a VR mode exclusively on PSVR. So, if you want an affordable console that has a VR device, then PS4 Pro is the choice.

It’s quite disappointing that Xbox One X didn’t reveal anything about its VR device or even the Holo-Lens. Bummer.

    Here’s my 2 big reasons why the X with outsell the PS4.

    1) Power. Multiplats will look and play better on the X and no matter how much some game sites want to ignore that fact the average consumer wont.

    2) A deep and truly diverse library of games due to thousands of 360 games–no bs. Yeah, everyone makes a big stink over the PS4’s exclusives but in reality they’re very few. Just pure hyperbole. A handful of exclusives does not give the PS4 a win in the area of “diversity” compared to the X. Further more, even without all the 360 games the X still has just as many big AAA games as the PS4. The “PS4 wins in diversity” argument is a fallacy put out there by ignorant and biased people. Just put your bias aside (if you’re capable) and look at the facts, compare all the big AAA exclusives of both systems since their launch and you’ll see that it’s been pretty even in comparison.

            More than 20 PS4 exclusives in 2017??? I’d like to see a list of these dogsh1t games considering that there is only 2 or 3 exclusive games on the PS4 worth playing in it’s entire 3 year existence! lol

            In my opinion, Xbox does have decent exclusives, it’s just not diverse as Sony’s and lacks the quantity. 🙂

          Sorry, I stand corrected. Must be my browser acting up.

  • kreator

    First of all only one of them does 4K..
    Second, a price cut is not coming for the Pro!

    • Lexuzze Tablante

      First of all only one of them does 4K..
      = Both do 4K on specific titles. Example of that is The Last of Us PS4 which runs on a native 4K resolution on PS4 Pro.

      Second, a price cut is not coming for the Pro!
      =That’s why I said “and most likely will have a price drop”. Hence “likely” since Xbox One X will launch November 7 — a month before the holidays. So there’s a high chance that Sony will do a price drop and have it on “sale”. Don’t take it out of context.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      1st of all , ther may be no price cut since sony saw what M$ offered and didnt see the reason for a price cut!
      2nd- even without it, it still cheaper
      3rd the amount of exclusives available for each console cant even be compared! there are more than 20 for ps4 so far and not enough from xbox to even make a top 10 where they were all included.

      You need punctuation, and an education… well I guess the former would impart the latter.

        j.j Trollington…. at it again are we? And no, I didn’t use a capital for your name. Your not worth it. What college did you graduate with honours from again j.j? And the school of hard nocks doesn’t count j.j, you should really stop putting that on your resume too. It’s obvious you don’t work either, unless you count trolling Xbox articles so you can feel big with your online muscles. Go troll elsewhere and scream Black lives matter whilst doing so, because no one here cares what a skinny crack head thinks or says, especially when it’s nothing but a barrage of negativity. These are games you fool, and game consoles, grow up and go play instead of trolling. One of your earlier comments states no more Xbots want to argue with you anymore. It’s because your a punk with no education yourself, who thrives off berating people because their opinion differs from yours. Console wars used to be fun, but losers like you killed it. Get a life, get a job or go apply at Evergreen College. You’d fit right in!!!

        • J.j. Barrington

          Hard nocks?

          He gets paid for it.

          • J.j. Barrington

            I’m not you or edonus, so my preferred company does not pay me.

            It’d be nice, though. Wouldn’t have to get up so early and put up with idiot coworkers and customers if Sony paid me. I’d also not have an old Samsung TV(maybe an old Sony one), either.

            Interesting that you can respond with unimaginative one-liners, but can’t counter any of the critiques thrown your way. You still accusing this place of being “bias gaming media” like your buddy, even after a link has been provided showing that’s not the case?

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      I love xbots who dont have any exclusives in months talk about frauds!

      #starvingxbot

      • wobblypops46

        And yet there is probably 2 maybe 3 exclusives on the PS4 worth the bother to the average person. Honestly, you fanboys really over exaggerate the PS4’s strength in exclusives it’s so ridiculous. Further more, Sony has said that PS4 games will be making their way over to their PS Now service so what little exclusives the PS4 does have will soon be no more. smh

  • Edonus

    There is only one true reason why the Ps4Pro would outsell the Xbox One X and every other reason stems from the main reason.
    ****Bias Gaming Media**** That is all.

    Look at this article as evidence…… Look at the second sentence “Microsoft’s so-called “most powerful” console”….. That is called introducing doubt. The reality is that there is nothing “So Called” about the power difference and its funny how every game will look better on the Xbox One X but the only ones that matter now are games made by first-party studios. Its leading….. its creating a safe environment to coddle and push this narrative.

    This is not the only site that is doing this……. In 90+% of the Xbox One articles you are sure to find positive about Ps4 when they talk comparatively like they are outselling MS 2-1 or they have so many exclusive games….. yet you will rarely find a Ps4 article were they are talking about Xbox One S/X 4k blu ray player or how the Xbox One X will be clearly look an run game games better.

    Just saying….

    • J.j. Barrington

      God, you’re a moron.

      Five hours ago, four hours before you commented, the author posted a link to an article where the XOX is the console to get. This was in response to another idiot who’s too busy being a dumb fanboy to pay attention to reality. http://sirusgaming.info/2017/06/future-proofing-why-getting-an-xbox-one-x-is-better-than-a-ps4-pro/

      But you’re so stupid you didn’t even notice it, did you?

      Making asinine mistakes like this- EVERY TIME YOU COMMENT- is why I continue to respond and mock you.

      • ClanPsi

        I get it, but you’re a liiiitttllleee too agro.

        • J.j. Barrington

          Folks like him get annoying after a few years.

        • Edonus

          This guy is sony shill that gets paid to go around and spread doubt and negativity about the Xbox. He follows me around commenting to me when I have asked him not to talk to me because of his irrational pony ways. I try not to say nothing to him but he is in love with me………See his parents used to beat him when he was young. He in turn translates being humiliated and talked about and bashed as love. I with out knowledge of this began to call him names and deface him so that he would leave me alone (thinking he was like regular humans). Me talking down to him has made me some kind of father figure to him so now he wants me to converse with him and be abusive (he’s a real weirdo).

          He actually thinks because this author made some other article console war profiteering, playing the positive and negative sides it dismisses the Bias practices used in this one.

          He’s a real piece of sH!t.

          • Lexuzze Tablante

            “He actually thinks because this author made some other article console war profiteering, playing the positive and negative sides it dismisses the Bias practices used in this one.”

            I own both Xbox One and PS4 and I love both the consoles. So I don’t quite fathom what you’re trying to say about “bias”. You may want to watch Jim Sterling’s video and hear him explain what the word bias means.

          • J.j. Barrington

            He definitely doesn’t want to, lol.

          • Lexuzze Tablante

            Oh. It’s his loss then.

          • J.j. Barrington

            I don’t think he even knows what that means.

          • Edonus

            What I am saying is that things you put in this article are inline with the techniques the Bias Gaming Media (BGM) has been using for the last 3-4 years against the Xbox One that has created an overly negative idea of the product. I am not saying you are bias but you are doing things the bias do.
            As for your video reference….. I have seen it before and for the most part disagree with it. I have felt that gaming journalism (and journalism in general) has become too opinion based. When we see a review of a game it is 80%-90% subjective. You may think that is fine but if you look at other industries and what a review actually constitutes you would see the lack of objectivity makes all the information useless.
            As an example when someone reviews a car most of the information is measureable….horsepower, torque, handling stability, how it functions, mile per gallon…… its not someone talking about how they don’t like BMWs because they don’t like the shape of the headlights.
            Flipside I see game reviews where they dont discuss content features and balance and say I dont like the story…. and that’s the review. The big problem is how much content is in something is objective…… what you think about a character or story is subjective…… and the over arching point is if something is not objective it can then be influenced by other factors than what actually just is and if someone has a bias that is unchecked it corrupts everything turning information in to propaganda.

          • Lexuzze Tablante

            “I am not saying you are bias but you are doing things the bias do.”

            Well that’s new information for me. Honestly, I, however, didn’t even know that what I was writing was the similar to the “technique” of BGM. The way I wrote my opinion was to share my “thoughts” of the subject, no propaganda and other negative “strategies” you were pertaining to.

          • ClanPsi

            Funny, though: you’re still not countering any points anyone has made against you. If I’M the shill, why are YOU the one with no answers?
