I’m contemplating an upgrade from my PS3 to one of the next generation consoles, and I’m looking for input from owners of one or both. I recently got my girlfriend, who previously didn’t play video games at all, hooked on Diablo 3. We’re playing it together using the excellent couch co-op mode, and looking for more of the same. We’re especially looking forward to the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront.
So, that’s two games that we’re interested in, both of which can be played on either the PS4 or Xbox One. I am most drawn to the PS4, partly because I’m used to Sony’s aesthetic and partly because of the potential exclusive games - but those games (like the Uncharted series and various RPGs) are all lacking in couch co-op and therefore probably will never get played anyway. The Xbox is currently $100 cheaper for the basic version, which is hard to argue with for the sake of some potential games that I will probably never play. Of course, it does have slightly inferior graphics. Also, the PS4 will be getting a refresh soon which may result in prices dropping on the older models.
So I guess what I’m asking is: are there some great couch co-op campaign-style exclusive games that should push me in one direction or the other? Is there any good reason, other than my sentimental attachment, for me to get a PS4 over an Xbox One?
