It's been six months since the PS4 and Xbox One launched, and it seems like a good point to take stock of the first half-year and see if it's worth buying a next-gen/new-gen console any more than it was back in November last year.
In many ways, it still feels right to call the PS4 and Xbox One "next-gen" consoles. After all, it doesn't exactly feel as though the new black boxes of gaming entertainment have quite hit their sides, nor that developers (especially third-party outfits) are giving the more powerful pieces of kit the attention that they perhaps deserve. But nonetheless, they have been flying off of the shelves since their winter launches, and there have been plenty of gamers delighted with their day one purchases.
But what of the rest of you? Still uncertain about making that leap? Don't know which console is actually the better proposition after six months of updates and new services, and key game releases? We fret not, because that's what we're here for. In the name of science, we've conducted a clinically impartial podcast of awesomeness to sort this out once and for all, and to inform you of the best possible choice you can make should you be thinking about buying a new console right now.
For science, then! And shits and giggles.
