In 2013, a new generation of consoles brought a whole new theatre of war to the battle which had been raging for years. Where once Nintendo stood as the proud winners of the Console Wars, they had fallen by the wayside, bloodied, bruised, and still trying to convince the video game buying public that they wanted to play a new Metroid game. The Japanese giant had been replaced by two leviathans of video gaming, each with flags firmly planted in the soft ground of public consciousness. Sony and Microsoft - backed by legions of loyal fans, many of whom had grown up with one or the other system - stood proudly behind their chosen console and beat the deafening war drums which sounded the Next Gen of the Console Wars. While the war raged in the lead up to launch, there came an obvious note of tension in the air. The launch of the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One brought with it a slight whiff of jealousy from the Microsoft camp. How could it be that two consoles which were so similar could have so many marked differences? Why had Sony got it so right when Microsoft had got it so wrong? This one's for the players.
