Xbox One's basic packages retail for around $300 (assuming you live in the US). That gets you the console, a single controller, a 500GB hard drive, and a sometimes several download codes for games with certain bundles. If you're willing to pay up to $150 more, you can pick up the Elite bundles with a 1TB solid state hybrid hard drive and a Xbox One Elite controller. None of these bundles include the now-defunct Kinect. Also keep in mind that you'll probably want to cough up an extra $60 annually for an Xbox Live Gold membership to play online. We'll cover this in more detail on the next slide.
PlayStation 4's most basic bundles retails for as low as $350 (again, in the US). That gets you the console, a single controller, 500GB hard drive, and a copy of a game depending on the bundle you pick up. There are plenty of bundles available, but many go for well over $400. Sony has a new PS4 model coming soon, so if you've waited this long, it might be wise to wait a bit longer. Also keep in mind that you'll probably want to drop $50 annually for a PlayStation Plus membership if you want to play online. We'll cover this more in the next slide.
Winner: Xbox One. There's only about a $50 price difference between the two consoles, but Microsoft does offer more bundles to suit your preference. Xbox One controllers are also a bit cheaper than the PS4's for the Player 2 in your life, and the Elite controller is probably the best you can get your hands on.
