     The first two entries in the inFAMOUS series were both must-buys on the PS3, so there was a certain level of anticipation and expectation on the first franchise outing on the new system. Gone is hero/villain of the series to date Cole McGrath (the makers have decided to go with inFAMOUS...

    Sony played the release of their new console very, very smartly; after Microsoft bungled the announcement of the Xbox One by almost completely forgetting to even mention that their new console even plays games, Sony's mission statement...

    The €399 price tag doesn't get you the PlayStation Eye (another €60 should you want to own one), which doesn't quite compete with the Xbox Kinect in terms of technical capabilities, but you get the impression that Sony aren't really trying to compete in that interactive gaming arena. In every other area though, the PS4 equals or surpasses the Xbox One's tech specs, and the newly revamped operating system have made it even easier for games developers to make games for the systems, so as much as we have some massive Sony exclusives to look forward to - such as Infamous: Second Son and The Order: 1886 - there's also a lot of scope for "indie" gaming to flourish on this platform.

  • Xbox One reviewedXbox One reviewed

    The console itself is quite bulky, its size dwarfing the Playstation 4, and the Kinect is also quite large when compared to Sony's Playstation Eye. However, the Kinect is a much superior camera and motion tracker than the Eye, and the console itself isn't positioning itself to be just...

    Games wise, it's a bit of a mixed bag, with Ryse: Son Of Rome obviously the headliner, but it's fancy graphics can't distract from the repetitive gameplay. Dead Rising 3 has the opposite issue, being a lot of fun to play, but the graphics don't scream next-gen. Forza 5 has great visuals and a true sense of realism, but lacks choice to make it the fun last long-term. Killer Instinct is a hugely addictive fighting game, but with a max of six characters to choose from, again suffers from a lack of choice. Other games including Zoo Tycoon (cute, but kinda boring) and Fighter Within (just plain bad) round out the exclusives, leaving multi-platform releases like Assassin's Creed IV, Call Of Duty: Ghosts and Lego Marvel Super Heroes to pick up the slack.
