A survey was taken of 26 students here at Wellington Landings. A simple question asked that said, “What console do you prefer? Xbox, or PlayStation? After the votes were in, Xbox won by some margin, with 63%, and PlayStation having only 37%. This tells a lot about how some people prefer something that Xbox has, and Playstation doesn’t.

First, we’ll talk about the biggest differences between the two consoles. Playstation controllers have shapes as the buttons while Xbox has letters, which really doesn’t have too much impact on people. Something big that people have their own opinion on is the placement of the joysticks. On PlayStation, the joy-sticks are level with each other on opposite sides. On Xbox, the joy-sticks are on opposite sides, however, the joystick on the left is located on the top left, while the right is located on the bottom right. This affects how many people like to play. It changes their comfort, and some people have more comfort with Xbox, while some people have more comfort with PlayStation. Something else that people have their own opinions on is certain games that Xbox has, and Playstation doesn’t. For example, Xbox has the Forza Horizon series, a road car racing game. This is a big downside for many players on Playstation because Playstation doesn’t have these games. However, PlayStation has a game called, “The Last of Us”, while Xbox doesn’t have this. Many big differences affect many people on different consoles.

As you can see, there are many differences between the two. Some people like Xbox and other people like Playstation. In my opinion, I prefer Playstation because some of the things Playstation has,  Xbox doesn’t. Both consoles are great, but some people prefer one console over the other!
