In pictures: NVIDIA Shield Android TV vs Xbox One vs PS4 vs Wii U

Nobody who should be listened to will tell you the NVIDIA Shield TV is capable of providing a gaming experience comparable to the Xbox One, PS4, or even the Wii U. The hardware and software in those consoles is finely tuned to provide things the Tegra X1 and Android TV simply aren't capable of delivering. Gaming on the Shield Android TV is fun, but the current lineup is mostly nostalgia and expanded mobile games. It's undoubtedly aimed at consoles, but not quite ready to take over yet.

That's not to say the gaming experience and many other features contained within the Shield Android TV aren't impressive, in fact it wouldn't be hard to call this the best set top box on the market today. By that mark alone, it's worth taking a look at what exactly you get from this box compared to the other consoles to help you better decide if there's room in your life for the Shield Android TV.

While the Shield Android TV is noticeably larger than streaming competitors like Roku, Apple TV, and even the Nexus Player, compared to the current crop of game consoles it's a little sliver of nothing. The lack of an optical drive and the wall wart power brick help considerably with the size, but it's also not doing as much as these other devices. Nintendo is powering two screens at once, while Sony and Microsoft equip their AMD processors with all the heatsinks and fans they can stuff into these gaming boxes to ensure optimal performance under load. The Tegra X1 in the Shield Android TV isn't that different from a mobile processor, which is why the overall profile is only slightly larger than the Shield Tablet.

This also means it takes up significantly less room on an entertainment center, especially if you pay for the aluminum stand. It can be easily hidden behind a television, or you can connect a hard drive and a web cam to it and use the Shield Android TV as an HTPC with video chat support through the Android TV leanback UI. Alternatively, if you have it displayed prominently, the instant-on power button and HDMI-CEC one-touch mode allows you to control supported televisions in the same way you would a PS4.

Another interesting place to look when comparing these systems is the controller. While Sony typically enjoys being the thinnest and lightest controller in the bunch, all of the console controllers manage to be lighter and thinner than what is included with the Shield Android TV. Nvidia makes up for the added bulk with features and a nice sloped design in the back that offers a place to rest your unused fingers, so it's not like you're getting the same experience as you would with the others.

The ability to slide in any pair of headphones and steal all of the audio from the TV or control the volume from your controller is nice, and the microphone baked in to the controller for "OK Google" commands is awesome, but the controller itself is still a little on the unwieldy side. There's also some odd symmetry issues, like the rightmost button seems to almost fall off of the controller the way it is positioned. It's miles ahead of anything you'll get from any other set-top box manufacturer, but clearly not quite as nice as what we see from the dedicated consoles.

Shield Android TV and consoles

While the Shield Android TV isn't going to be replacing the heavyweights anytime soon, if you're a casual gamer who isn't addicted to the current wave of games or you're looking for a nice streaming box for the non-gaming TV in your house, it's unlikely you'll find anything that suits your needs quite like NVIDIA's offering. And who knows, maybe NVIDIA's success with the Shield Android TV will have them aim just a little higher next time and offer something that directly competes with the likes of Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo.

  • Xbox one is a brick. no wonder its not selling well.
    I am selling my PS3 and getting an Android Tv for my gaming needs. I am not a huge gamer anymore
  • I love my shield, but I wish android tv was more open. I would like to be able to install any app/game without having to sideload!
  • There's a way to install any app you want, just download apk extractor, save it to your google drive and install it from there.
  • So, you can buy an app and save it to your google drive? For instance, I would really like to buy Lego Star Wars, but it's not compatible with the android TV.
  • Yes, but it has to be playable with a controller.
  • Honestly the last thing that concerns me about a console is it's physical appearance. The Xbox may not win any beauty awards, but that is OK.
  • Xbox > PlayStation. Come at me, bro.
  • Nope. Not even close. Posted via the Android Central App
  • You're right. Xbox One is >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>. PS4. Come at me! I'll point out all the arguments.
  • Lol enjoy what you want Posted via the Android Central App
  • Would love to see the bullet points on your reasoning. I have read 10 different reviews on both and still can't decide between the two.
  • There's pros and cons to both. PS4 is fractionally more powerful but its not really telling yet, though it may be relevant later in the generation as the hardware starts to be pushed on both consoles. PS4 is the undisputed king of indie games as well. Xbox One is also getting a degree of backwards compatability with 360 now though, which is massive for me as my last console was a 360. I actually got a PS4, having been Xbox last generation, because on paper for me its the better console, and its more popular so more of my friends have one to play online with. My housemate has an Xbox One and its definitely a great console but for me the PS4 does edge it and the controller is better. It is such a close thing though it ultimately comes down to preference.
  • Each has their pros and cons. I respect your choice :)
  • PlayStation > Xbox. Come at me, bro.
  • The Xbox came out in 2001 and the Playstation came out in 1994, I would hope it would be better...
  • So by your reasoning the wii beats them both....yup
  • PC > all that.
  • Totally agree homie! I'm still a "gamer" but goodness not as I once was. (Glory dayzzz). . . If it wasn't for FFXIV and (as of Tuesday) SAO: RE: Hollow Fragment (free DL w/pre order of Lost Song; out in Nov), I'd be fine with selling my PS4 and just gaming on my 3DSXL, PSvita, PSTV, and Note 4 (hellooooo DBZ Dokkan Battle.... kind of addicting if you're a DBZ fan and it's officially by Bandai). I'm not as "against" mobile gaming anymore. There's a slew of content out there that is (yes imo) enjoyable. Via my Note4, I'm playing: DBZ: Dokkan Battle, Civilization Revolution 2, Doom & Destiny (hilarious old skool throwback), Final Fantasy Record Keeper (enough to fill my FF needs on the go), Forsaken World Mobile (MMORPG just released last week; been following it for awhile), NBA Jam, Shadowrun, Vain Glory (finally out for Android 2/3 weeks ago), and Game Dev Story. I mean..... those seriously fill my "gaming" needs. I used to be a hater, but now I'm on board. Just a casual gamer now. No shame though.
  • Do you even know why it looks like a brick? It's called cooling the system. Xbox one will have the longest shelf life out of all those console systems. That I promise! Complain about the brick all you want, I'll take the longevity of the system and compatibility to the #1 OS used world wide on non mobile devices.
  • Doesn't sound like a hairdryer, unlike my old 360 and my ps4.
  • Just ordered a Shield TV myself, but keeping the PS3 around since it is also my Blu-Ray player till the 4k Blu-ray players get affordable.
  • I said screw all that. I'm happy with my PC and PS Vita. Home consoles aren't worth it for me period. My phone and tablet are more than capable of handling all potential Android games. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Its funny I own a Xbox one and I am a huge xbox fan and just picked up a NVIDIA Shield Pro TV this week and I'm loving it. I am in process of setting up the ability to stream a game from my pc to the shield for my FIFA 15 needs and after that pretty sure selling the Xbox one.
  • If you have a relatively fast connection, take advantage of the free GameStream trial while it lasts (ends tomorrow!) - it's great. I've been playing Akrham City on my shield at 1080p 60fps.
  • yea I have been playing with that, do we know how much it will be after the trial?
  • Nvidia has been mum on pricing, sorry. There was a document awhile backon their FAQ that had a placeholder price of $19.99/month, but it was taken down after the Geforce Forum community had an uproar over it.
  • Good advice Brandogg, I just wanted to amend it a little: 1)You're talking about Grid, which is different than GameStream. The system offers both, each with their pros and cons. I prefer Gamestream :) 2)It was ended. It's now free until September 1st (subject to change, again).
  • My bad, yes, Grid. I like Grid because I don't have a supported PC (and don't want to buy one). Regarding price - if it's that much, then no thanks. I think it should either be like $10/month, or you should be able to buy the games, pay a small monthly fee for the service (as in like $2/mo), but you get to download the games to your PC if you ever want to.
  • They will have a Grid Store. Supposedly, buying a game on the Grid Store gives you a Steam key (for PC), and allows you to stream it from Grid. They (Nvidia) haven't stated if streaming games you own will be part of the main streaming package, or a separate package. They have hinted that there will only be one pricing option. If you don't have a supported PC, try the free app "Kino Console." It works similar to Gamestream, but works in software. Works well for the price, but GS is a little better.
  • I'm fairly certain the the XBO and PS4 have AMD, not Intel, processors. Posted via the Android Central App
  • yup you are correct
  • This is correct!
  • Nvidia is directly competing with the big boys, they are going with the mobile game craze that will eventually end up on our living room TVs very soon.
  • Sure they can put out the hardware, but what about the trusted franchises? It's games that sell consoles, afterall.
  • Like an Ouya? Mobile game craze indeed.
  • I know Nvidia is using gaming as a selling point but I feel that if you want a Media Center (first)/Gaming Device get an XBO and if you want a Gaming Device (first)/Media Center than get a PS4. I personally own a PS4 and the rest are smart blu-ray players.
  • +1 I chose the PS4 mainly because it's gaming first, boot up and play, I have way too many other things that can do entertainment, so when XB1 first was announced and that was their selling point, I wasn't interested. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Curious, since until recently the xbox one was the only 'boot up and play' device that would retain your game as it was. It was a selling point when they announced it. Thankfully both major consoles now support this and we're living in the future.
  • One thing I love the most with the shield tv is that once my rear gets tired of sitting on my desk I can go lay in my bed and continue playing the witcher 3 from where I left off with FAR better graphics than any xbox or ps4 could achieve. Also my pc game library is already massive and steam sales blow anything else out of the water.
    Android stuff is a bonus I guess:)
  • Exactly. Shield is competing on all fronts: Media, casual game, and higher end gaming. And, with all of the power that the Shield has, if they went AWAY from the TV model, or supported all app download (because they support BT/Wireless mouse and keyboards), this could actually work as a desktop productivity machine as well.
  • If you say things like: I really like Five Nights at Freddy's way better than Resident Evil," or "that Candy Crush sure is engaging,'. Or the slightly more absurd " I didn't never pay videa games until them angry birds.". Please...please...never ever talk about actual video games again. You're not a're what gamers hate... Go back to watching Pewdie Pie fame scream at his bro-possey... Enjoy your boxed wine and shut the hell up about stuff you know nothing about. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Loved Resident Evil.
    Never played (nor will) FNaF.
    Candy Crush is for the birds.
    "didn't never" is a double negative.
    pay should be "play"
    Gaming is gaming.... whether you like it or not.
    Pewdie Pie is also for the birds. Lastly, I will enjoy my box wine because it does the job for a cheap price. If you haven't tried it, and yet are blasting it, then shut the hell up about stuff you know nothing about. See what I did there. Opinions are like a$$holes..... everyone has one. You're welcome.
  • I play everything once...I just don't play crap a second time... Posted via the Android Central App
  • Your reply makes absolutely no sense as to the comment I left. I'm a bit perplexed, but I shan't waste any time towards pondering about this conversation.
  • A lot of people hate folk like you. "You're not a gamer unless I can rate and qualify your experiences, compare to my own narrow viewpoints and express my exceptionalism whilst judging you. Also, git gud." Anyone who games is a gamer, being discriminatory is bad, mm'kay?
  • No, anyone who qualifies "mobile only" gaming as being a "gamer," isn't one...they're barely people... Posted via the Android Central App
  • "Nobody who should be listened to will tell you the NVIDIA Shield TV is capable of providing a gaming experience comparable to the Xbox One, PS4, or even the Wii U." Pathetic, ignorant opening line. Now, let me be clear here. When loading up a game that is played natively off the device, you're correct. The Shield cannot compare. In fact, it takes a ton of work for developers just to get PS3/360 level quality, despite the Shield's superior hardware, simply because Android as an OS is not tuned for gaming. Too many layers reducing efficiency, something that a console sheds in an attempt to get the most out of the hardware. But, the Shield does some things that a console could only dream of (though recent reports indicate that Microsoft is going in this direction). The Shield's Gamestream is a game changer (and there are competing services, more on that later). We've heard the PC fanboys and the self proclaimed "PC Master Race" weigh in on this, but when you cut through the fanboy drivel there is some truth to their arguments. In most cases when a game is available on console AND PC, the PC version will be superior (let's pretend to forget about Arkham Knight or any final Fantasy ports). And also, when you replace your console, you generally lose compatibility with your prior console's games (unless you keep multiple boxes hooked up to the TV). When you upgrade your PC, you get the benefits of keeping compatibility with your older games while also enhancing the graphics further. Going back to Morrowind on the OG Xbox is a pain in the butt (digging out the console, making room for it, dealing with load times and the low-res low quality graphics). Load Morrowind on a PC and it stands the test of time. So, what's all this got to do with Shield? Again, Gamestream. The Shield acts as an extender letting you play these games on your HDTV in all their glory. I was playing Batman Arkham City on it last week and a friend commented that he "didn't remember the game looking this good." Thats because the PS3/Xbox 360 title doesn't look nearly as good on the old consoles as it does on even a low-end PC today (no lie, I'm only using a GTX 750ti, which is weaker than the PS4's GPU). But Gamestream only works if you have an Nvidia GPU (and only specific ones), right? That's where third party apps come into play. Kino Console is free ($6 if you want 1080p60) and works fine (though I highly recommend ether wired or wireless-AC on both ends). In my experience, Kino Console requires a solid 50mbps internal transfer rate for 1080p60, whereas Gamestream requires 30mbps and looks better. From this perspective, the Shield is merely a PC extender and doesn't need to be upgraded/replaced like a console. You get higher quality versions of console titles that remain available (and even enhanced) when you do upgrade your PC. All from one box. I concede that the experience of real consoles vs. the Shield is different. I will even concede that for the mainstream user, the real console experience is superior. But the versatility of the Shield cannot be matched, at least for now. As I alluded to earlier, Microsoft is talking about doing the same with the Xbox One. Still, $199/$299, or $349, which would you prefer? (of note, Valve's $50 box will do similar, but isn't a set top box, a better choice for those who want to game stream to their HDTV). In conclusion, people who feel that the Shield offers a superior experience to consoles SHOULD be listened to. Some of them are correct, and if their advice is something that you can easily follow, YOU end up with a better gaming experience.
  • So your whole argument is..."If you spend twice the money for a competent PC and then a Shield TV, you could have a game experience that might be better than a console that's half the price?" Doesn't seem like a good argument....especially when you consider just how much, even PC game focused, developers don't care about Pc gamers. Look at the number of games that you'd miss out on that'll never make it to the PC: youd never play a God of War, a Mario, you'd never play Zelda. And the games you do get on PC are either absurdly late (Metal Gear:GZ took what...a year to port to PC?) or are just broken or riddled with bugs (how's that new Batman game working for you PC Master-baters?). So spend double or more the money to get treated like a second class citizen or at best an afterthought? Thank you, no Posted via the Android Central App
  • Slacker - first, the issue wasn't cost, it was the experience. A Rolex gives a better "experience" than a Timex (for watch nuts, anyway). No one debates that a Rolex costs more. Same thing here. I'm arguing that a PC-gaming experience can be comparable to or better than consoles under the right circumstances. The right circumstances, of course, usually includes higher cost. You inadvertently proved my point though. My argument wasn't "PC gaming is superior" (I really hate the PC Master Race people). It's simply that it's an alternative experience with pros and cons. And this is where the Shield fits in. I'm merely countering the author's opening statement, which essentially tries to shut down the other side.
  • But the cost is excessive even for your use case. Case in point...if you had a competent PC and a decent could easily output to the TV agnostic of the Shield...ita a middle man, one that's going to add latency and artifacts. I get what you're saying about master racers...I do...but you're going to either be playing their catalog...or the crap that's on grid...which is just last gen games upscaled to 1080p with worse issues than just playing that game on the console for which it was intended. Again, I have no idea why anyone gives a shit about PC gaming anyway, for the reasons I listed above. I have the benefit of free hardware (job perk) so I'm one of the ones that used a decent pc at 4k on my big nice 4k set...from the 8foot distance...I'd find it really hard to justify the price vs performance ratio of that 4k capable PC...and to put an additional $300 piece of hardware between that PC and my TV that makes it a worse experience....just doesn't make good sense. I get there's probably a use case for the hand full of people who have those 1st world problems of "My PC isn't close enough to mah 4k TV" or "my mommy won't let me hook up the PC to my daddy's TV," but I couldn't say there were enough of those to justify the product either. But again, let's look t the issues and compare them to the advantages...there's just not a value prop that makes this worth it. Posted via the Android Central App
  • "But the cost is excessive even for your use case." Not at all. I wanted Android TV for my living room, The cheapest option was a Nexus Player ($79), but I got the Shield for other reasons. Could have gotten the $199 model for Gamestream (+$120), but I wanted the built-in HDD space for native emulators ($299). So if I had only gotten something for Gamestream, bill me $120 for the price over the Nexus Player. As for the PC, I'm using an 8-year old CPU/mobo with 4GB of RAM. I recently upgraded the GPU (GTX 750 ti, paid $110). I would have had this PC anyway, but upgrading the GPU lets me plays the games that I want at 1080p. So, now we're at $230. I paid $230 over what I otherwise would have just to get a console-like experience. "if you had a competent PC and a decent could easily output to the TV agnostic of the Shield" PC is competent. TV is more than decent. However, I don't live in a single-wide trailer :) I have an Android TV in the living room, another in my bedroom, and my PC is in my office. I don't feel like paying $60-$100 for a 100ft HDMI cable and then running that through the house. "I get what you're saying about master racers...I do...but you're going to either be playing their catalog...or the crap that's on grid...which is just last gen games upscaled to 1080p with worse issues than just playing that game on the console for which it was intended." Have you used Grid? I have. Your assessment is not correct. "and to put an additional $300 piece of hardware between that PC and my TV that makes it a worse experience" You're assuming a Shield Pro. You don't need a Shield Pro for this. Steam Link is $50. Nexus Player is $79 and the paid Kino Console app is $6 (Limelight is free!). Shield is $199. There are plenty of options to do this. "ita a middle man, one that's going to add latency and artifacts." Again, your ignorance is showing. Have you used Gamestream? Latency is less than 5ms. The average LCD HDTV introduces 30-80ms latency when it's not properly configured (and based on your logic, I don't think you have the know-how to configure these). I use the PC mode, which has <16.7ms latency. So even with Gamestream, we're talking 1-2 frames of latency at 60fps, and less than 1 frame latency at 30fps. This is better than what the average user gets with a typical console setup. And there is no artifacting with gamestream. I'm using ethernet (via powerline) from PC to router, and ethernet from router to Shield (router is near the HDTV). You have two problems. First, you make assumptions about things that you haven't used. I too thought Gamestream would artifact until I tried it. Grid definitely does on my connection if I try 1080p60, but GameStream runs beautifully. Your second issue is that you refuse to acknowledge viewpoints other than your own. I concede that consoles offer an excellent experience. My only issue was to state that PC/Shield gaming also can be an awesome experience, and I am correct in that. All you've done is attack anyone that doesn't agree with you.
  • +1, and that's not even considering that many folks will already have that PC regardless. Posted via the Android Central App
  • And after a few years, start realising how cumbersome and space-consuming a desktop system really is. Get rid of it, move into a laptop for any work requirements (or off them altogether and use portable devices for their things) and just get a cheaper console to plug and play with their friends. Because that's what they want to do more than configure things to the maximum.
  • Thanks for using GoW, Mario, Zelda, MG:GZ, and "that new Batman" as your examples of "never make it to PC" console games. . . . . because I could care less about all of the above. Opinions are like a$$holes..... everyone has one. You're welcome.
  • Dare I ask what you do play? Posted via the Android Central App
  • Does it matter what he plays? You've already made it clear that you consider any viewpoint other than your own to be foolish. He's decided that you're not worth his time.
  • Aww look, you're like...coming to the rescue of your girlfriend... Posted via the Android Central App
  • Hello Mr. Kettle!
  • Gamestream is great but like you said, XBox One will have PC game streaming soon too. And XBox One native games will kick NVidia Shield native games in the butt which will cover anything that doesn't make it to PCs in a timely manner.
  • You are absolutely, 100% correct. I see three tiers of devices here. -Just want a PC games extender? Get Valve's answer. It's $50.
    -Want a PC games extender, but also a media player/STB? Get the Shield for $199/$299.
    -Want a PC games extender (eventually), good media playback, and better native game quality? Get the Xbox One ($349). There are different options, and which you deem superior will depend on your budget and usage scenario. I personally love firing up my Sega Saturn games on my PC, and then when my wife vacates the couch, I move to the living room and stream it to my HDTV :)
  • So your saying to have a comparable gaming experience to a console with the Shield TV you also have to purchase a gaming pc. Lol Posted via Android Central App
  • Not at all. I'm saying that a Shield plus a gaming PC can offer a different experience, better for many, worse for many. Depends on what you want out of it. I'm simply disputing the notion that the Shield can't compare. It absolutely can under the right circumstances. BTW, a gaming PC doesn't cost as much as you think.
  • If you can't play madden on it it will never compete with a console!
  • I could say the same using PC-exclusive titles. Not everyone plays Madden. The PC is a viable gaming platform. It has pros and cons compared to consoles, and will appeal to a different audience.
  • I was pretty shocked by that opening line too Posted via the Android Central App
  • Also, just to point this out, but Android Central itself said in a previous article that The SHIELD was, in fact, a console contender.
  • Didn't everyone say that about the Ouya too? Sites post stories to illicit emotional responses and drive clicks...doesn't make it right..but its a fact of life. Posted via the Android Central App
  • PS4 and XB1 have AMD processors, not Intel ;) Posted via the Android Central App
  • Shield TV just doesn't have the horsepower to compete with consoles. It needs to off load the processing to server farms or your nvidia powered pc to play games at the same quality as a console. All the savings you made on the Shield TV over a console will quickly be eaten up when you need to upgrade your Internet connection or hit data overages. Posted via Android Central App
  • "It needs to off load the processing to server farms or your nvidia powered pc to play games at the same quality as a console." Better quality than a console, but I get your point. "All the savings you made on the Shield TV over a console will quickly be eaten up when you need to upgrade your Internet connection or hit data overages." Then use GameStream or Kino Console. Uses internal bandwidth, so no internet needed. Doesn't affect your cap. Games on Steam are cheap.
  • I already intended to get a Shield set top to replace my OUYA. I have the Nintendo, XBox, and Sony already and think this Shield would make a really nice addition. I don't plan on throwing the OUYA away, mind you. I plan to get an extra few 360 controllers so I don't have to use the crappy stock one, and then I plan to put this retro-gaming emulator and ROM laden dream machine up in the bedroom so I can play Turbografx16 in bed! :-D Posted via the Android Central App
  • Intel processors? What?! Where Im I
  • Yeah it's AMD. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Has anyone tried video calling using a Webcam? What apps are compatible at this time? I can do this, sort of, using screen mirroring to a chromecast but for some reason while video calling, the sound won't go to the tv/receiver. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Video chat support? Are we sideloading something? I can't find anything in the Play Store. The most I've seen was Hangouts on Android TV screenshots that Google used in marketing prior to the Nexus Player's release. The fact that that hasn't happened yet, at least officially, bums me out.
  • Tellybean does it for now I guess. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Currently the Nvidia Shield is the only Android TV device with USB camera support. If you have a Shield then you can get Tellybean's easy video calling app on Google Play, connect a Logitech camera (C270 or C920) and you are set. You can call other Shield users or anyone on a laptop who logs in on
  • The biggest issue with it (and other "high end" Android set top boxes) is that it is a good jack of all trades, but when you already have a game console hooked up to a smart TV that can already stream Netflix/Amazon, with a chromecast already plugged in the back, and a FireTV stick sitting unused in the drawer, plus a tablet and/or phone within arm's reach of the recliner... There really isn't much need for it.
  • They're all stacked on top of a really nice black brick.
  • PS4 all the way. Xbox One sucks. And I don't want Windows 10. Can't speak for the shield. Posted via the Android Central App on my Moto G 4G 2nd Gen
  • But that WiiU skin though... I must have it. Where can that be acquired good sir???
  • I have an xbox one but every time I see a ps4 I'm like damn that is a sexy console. The xbox still looks like a vcr.
  • To me it's simple. What console has my favorite games. Halo for example...God of War...Mario games? PS4 wins for me.
  • And that's the ultimate question right there. I don't have any consoles right now. Had a PS3 before and sold it. The biggest question for me is exactly that? who has the biggest library...I play mostly FPS games...Call of duty games, battlefield games...and some third person titles like Tomb Raider. So, say if I wanted to play call of duty black ops, the first one, but NVidia only has black ops II and III, then what do I do? and that's the question. If Nvidia can up their library of titles to match or surpass the PS4 and Xbox one, then I'm all for it. The game library is the key. When a new game comes out for the PS4 and Xbox one, then the Nvidia shield should also include said game in their library, then I'm all good. THen I'll choose the Nvidia and save money vs. the PS4 or Xbox.
  • Or... Just buy all systems and have a perfect world of gaming.
  • I still have the original Xbox and I love it. I'm hoping to get the Xbox one. And all that I gotta say is that XBOX RULES BABY. YEE-HAW Y'ALL XBOX FOR LIFE
