PlayStation 4 VS Xbox One VS Wii U

I haven’t done a comparing post in a while, so I thought I would do a new one. This is a battle of the next-gen consoles, and most would ask “Why the hell have you included the Wii U?”. Well, to answer that, I say that they are all next generation consoles. Now let’s get started.

Price

This category is a landslide to the console that most people wouldn’t expect. The Wii U. The Wii U has two versions, the basic and the premium. The basic is Au$250 and the premium is AU$300. The Playstation 4 is AU$400 and the Xbox One is AU$500.

WINNER: WII U

RAM

Now, the Playstation 4 has an entirely different type of RAM to the Xbox One and the Wii U. The PS4 has GDDR5 RAM, while the Xbox One and the Wii U have DDR3. So since they are different, I will just compare the Xbox One and the Wii U. The One has 8 GB, but the Wii U only has 2 GB.

WINNER: PLAYSTATION 4/XBOX ONE

Storage

This is really a battle between the PS4 and the Xbox One. They both have 500 GB, but the Wii U has 8 in the basic pack and 32 in the premium pack. So, the Wii U doesn’t have much storage. Back to the point, the tipping point here is that the PS4’s is removeable and the Xbox One’s isn’t.

WINNER: PLAYSTATION 4

External Storage

Both the Xbox One and the Wii U have USB storage, but the PS4 hasn’t been announced whether there is external storage or not.

WINNER: WII U/XBOX ONE

Backwards Compatibility

Only one of these consoles is backwards compatible and that is the Wii U.

WINNER: WII U

Region Locked

The Wii U is and the other two aren’t. Simple as that.

WINNER: PLAYSTATION 4/XBOX ONE

Conclusion

Since the consoles haven’t all been released yet, this post is going to end here. To be honest with everyone, I am a Nintendo fan. But, this did not influence my decisions and I still think the PS4 is better. Nevertheless, let’s get on with the scores.

Wii U: 2.5

PS4: 2

One: 1.5

Wow. I don’t think anyone saw this coming. The Wii U is actually better than the others. Now don’t start a war in the comments because I am not going to declare it the winner. Playstations and Xboxes are very different from Nintendo consoles. The main reason is that almost all games on the Wii and Wii U are not on any other console. And most games on PS4/One/PC are not on Wii (U). So, this is very difficult to declare a winner. Here goes.

WINNER: PLAYSTATION 4
