“Francis” Gives His Final Verdict on PS4 vs Xbox One, PS4 Wins for Gaming but “There’s No Wrong Choice”

YouTuber Boogie2988, that plays the part of popular comedic character “Francis,” got an early taste of both the PS4 and the Xbox One, and after spending some time with Microsoft’s own Major Nelson, he posted his final verdict on both machines.

While he definitely seems to lean towards the PS4, that according to him is a clear winner for hardcore gamers due to the gaming-focused feature set and to the superior raw power of the hardware, the Xbox One still puts up a good fight, and is a good pick for those that care for the enhanced entertainment features (like Boogie’ wife), so there’s really “no wrong choice.”

This video may definitely surprise those that are used to Boogie’s ranting and raging “Francis” persona, but I thought it was definitely worth posting and watching, because it provides a very balanced and very well thought out opinion on the two consoles.

Of course your mileage may vary, and I don’t agree myself with every single thing he says (especially on the part about PC), but as a very well expressed opinion from a somehow unexpected (at least for some) source, it’s definitely worth a few minutes of your time.

    He’s right especially when he basically says that the right choice is up to you and your preferences, and there is no perfect choice that will have everything nor a bad choice that will make you regret buying it.

    I’m a gamer that buy a console mainly for gaming. I care about power, I care about resolution and for exclusives titles. I’m on the PS4 side. I will not sacrifice power for enhanced tv features.

    I give my respects to Francis for saying his honest review and refused to be influenced by Sony or Microsoft. Nice work man.

    In this type of situation, there is no wrong choice because you’re going with the option that leans more towards your preference(s). This won’t cause the fan/platform wars to cease, but hopefully it makes people dial it back a little. Hopefully.

    As a hardcore die hard gamer or even for pure gaming’s sake I will never give even one cent of my money to a company whose earnings fund global depopulation and eugenics.

    I buy and play games to have fun not fund companies that tamper with nature and destroy it for greed of power & money to kill innocent people.

    Boogie’s endorsement will redirect millions of dollars to where it should go- good fun games.

  • You are flat out wrong

    He’s mostly right. The Xbone is still crap but it’s nowhere near as malignant as it was six months ago. Just be quiet about it and don’t boast about your voice gimmicks and everything will be fine. 🙂

    Its still too early to make a real choice on a console. After like the first year is more like it when we see what both have come out with and whats to come in the future especially with all the features that both consoles are still missing.

    I want my gaming console to be awesome for gaming. I want remote play. I want gaikai. I want amazing graphics without spending 2k$ on a master race PC. And since I’m a cable cutter, I see no need for the “enhanced features”.
