However, if PS4 sales do end up significantly trumping XB1's, more people online may make for a better experience (assuming Sony doesn't repeat their security and slow update speed issues).

My best guess is that Sony will resolve their online issues, and you won't notice much of a difference between the two online gaming experiences. So go with the system whose secondary features and exclusives you prefer.

Currently, it looks like the XB1 will be winning from the start especially with the price difference being made up by getting a free game with the XB1 (You get FIFA 14 for free in Europe with it on release) so it will be interesting.
Thanks for the responses. I've always like PS better, but Xbox Live was fantastic. I normally don't even play games unless it's online, and recently I've only played sports games so online is my top priority. I'll have to do more research on the secondary features.

Anyone in here an Xbox or PS guy switching to the other console this time?
