Given the great sales including games for each, thoughts at this point? Is the graphical prowess of the PS4 that much better? Are the games for Xbox better? Where does GT stand?

I've stated my thoughts on this before, and I still go with - it just depends.

I personally feel like the Xbox has the better exclusives right now, but that could certainly change next year. I don't feel like the performance disparity is that big a deal. If you're giving up the games you want to play because  of the performance disparity, then I think you're basing your purchase on the wrong reasons. And right now the price is certainly great if budget is a concern. I also like how Microsoft has been continuously updating the XB1 to make improvements.

The PS4 is rock solid and is my choice for non-exclusives. While the interface is cleaner and more intuitive than the XB1, Sony doesn't seem as active in pushing improvements. I'm hoping that we get some good exclusive AAA titles on the PS4 next year, because other than The Last of Us I feel like this year has been a bust. The caveat to that is that if you like indie/downloadable titles, the PS4 seems to have the better selection, and in general their PS+ freebies usually shake out better than Microsoft's.

In the end I think it all comes down to what games you like to play. Make that your primary deciding factor, then weigh out the rest.

Personal preference. Performance wise the two systems are close so it depends on what games you want to play. And that's a personal choice. For example YK likes the XB1 exclusives better where I have no interest in any of them and enjoyed three PS4 exclusives this year alone.

Short answer: up to you.

If you're looking for technical differences between the two that goes beyond anecdotal evidence, Digital Foundry published an article a few days ago looking back at the last year's differences between the two platforms.

I've stated this before, but I was surprised by how much I like the xbone TV features. Combined with the fact that I may be the only one who is not really enamored by the PS4 controller and xbox live is the more preferred social network around here, I lean toward wanting to turn on the xbox if I am going to play a console.

That said, I mostly buy SP multiplatform non-fps titles on the PS4 for better graphics and the exclusive content they tend to have.

My thought is this.  If you can wait a year do.  There's nothing on xb1 that I can fully endorse as worth a purchase.  Its Christmas eve of the first year of release and I'm playing games on the 360.

I have no experience with Xbox One, but I love the PS4. I like how clean the UI is and I love the controller. Infamous was a fun exclusive and I'm stoked for The Order and Bloodborne, as well as Abzu

Probably the only caveat I would mention is that the deals for the consoles, especially on the Xbox, probably won't be here next year. So then you have to ask do I want to buy now, spend less, and have a few things to play or pay more and have more later on.

As noted, so much of the decision is personal preference, the exclusives and what system your friends have if you are into multi. I have both but rarely turn on the XB1 and right now that's only for Horizon 2. Perhaps if I used it for my TV but I have no interest in nor need for that. Never mind that I still find the XB1 UI to be far from intuitive.

For me, as a 99% single player who enjoys the exclusives there, my platform of choice is the PS4.

PS4 all the way, best gaming console I've ever owned.  Only thing I really want on XB1 is The Master Chief Collection, which really isn't enough for me to buy one.
