Now I haven't done any gaming posts but I am gonna give you guys one. Let's get started. Two days ago Microsoft made what could probably the biggest gaming announcement of 2013, the Xbox One. With reveals now all over the place, that just begs the question which is best. First off the looks, the Wii U looks just like a regular Wii with a tablet controller so nothing new there. The PS4 look however has not been revealed but will be shown at E3 on June 10. The Xbox One looks exactly like a PS3 and the Kinect sensor is not only comes standard but looks bigger. The controllers for the PS4 look about the same but with a bigger sensor and rumble shock technology built in near the center. The Xbox One has more similar look to the Xbox 360 controller except with a larger back with the symbol up top and colored letters on the buttons. The Wii U one like I already mentioned is a Wii Controller with a small tablet screen in the middle "enhancing " gameplay. Next the fetures. The Xbox One has Blue Ray installed, motion gaming, and you can watch live tv. It also will havw Xbox Live just redone and video chat on Skype is now possible. The PS4 will have several new cables and programs for better streaming and recording capibilites. It has a new online program looking much like the Xbox Live on the 360. The Wii U has the 5 player mode with the tablet and the 4 controllers and video chat via Nintendo Wi-Fi. Now lets move on to the games. The Xbox One has announced 15 games including a new Forza Motorsport, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and Assassins Creed 4. 8 of the current titles are from companies we all know and love but the rest however are all being made by new developers to try out. The PS4 has 27 announced games with the same mentioned titles as Xbox One (except for Forza) but includes a new Final Fantasy, Diablo 3, and maybe Planetside 2. The Wii U being out for 6 months now has 132 games out and upcoming. Some of the mentionable upcoming ones are a new MarioKart, 2 new Legends of Zeldas, Rayman Legends, and the long awaited Pikman 3. And last but not least the graphics. The Wii U does have enhanced graphics but the Xbox One has excellent and realistic graphics that out match the Wii U. PS4 also has enhanced graphics with its new processing core. And now my preference. I am a die-hard Nintendo fan and everyone I know owns an Xbox 360 but I would have to go with the PS4 because it carries most of the same games as the Xbox One something that the Wii U can't do, the similar graphics and fetures to the Xbox One, and the fact that Sony is trying so hard to redeem themselves after stumbling on the PS3 CONSOLE RATINGS: PS4: 8.91 stars Xbox One: 8.68 stars Wii U: 7.2 stars
