The Xbox One and PS4 are seemingly increasingly hard to choose between. Obviously, there are factors which will sway people in the direction of one or the other depending on personal preference, but they’re very well matched now that Microsoft have changed some of their policies.
In line with this, Microsoft’s new console will allow you to play your games partway into the download, in the same way as Sony’s black box, as well as disc-based games while they’re installing. There’s no word on how much you’ll have to download before you can play the game, however.
Perhaps the real fight for next-gen comes down to how little you have to download on each console before being able to play the game. Or perhaps not; the PS4 has at least nine other top features that are worth a look.
