Console Wars: The Next Generation – Xbox One Vs. PlayStation 4

by Sean P. Aune | January 2, 2014

A new console generation is an exciting time for all gamers, but who is the true champion between the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4? The Console Wars aims to figure that out.

Long time fans will remember one of our earliest projects was a multi-video series called The Console Wars that saw the PlayStation 3, the Xbox 360 and the Wii fighting it out across multiple videos. With a new generation upon us, it’s time for the companies to once again enter the ring and see who will win in the war between the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Original host Lasse Pulkkinen returns as your guide for this series that is sure to leave you on the edge of your seat with each episode as the consoles duke it out to crown a winner.

This is merely a teaser of what is to come, and you can expect the series to kick off in a few weeks. Until then, take a walk down memory lane with the original Console Wars series.
