History-The Xbox series is designed and produced byMicrosoft and there have been three major ones Xbox (2001), Xbox 360 (2005) andXbox One (2013). According to Microsoft, the idea of naming of the Xbox comesfrom the fact that they want the console to be an all-round entertainmentdevice, not just for playing video games but also to stream TV online andbrowse the Internet.-PlayStation Originally was a co-production betweenNintendo and Sony, issues between the two companies and Philips caused Sony toleave Nintendo and release the first PlayStation in 1994.
There have been fourmain versions of the console, they are called the PlayStation, PlayStation 2(2000), 3 (2006) and 4 (2013). Game Approach-From the release of the Xbox 360, Microsoft hastaken a “community gaming” approach to their consoles. This means that they’vefocused more on making an online gaming experience as smooth and seamless as possible.This means Microsoft and their associated developers have taken more of aninterest in multiplayer games, or games with a good online multiplayer mode.Something like Gears of War 3, or the default Call of Duty multiplayer.
-Sony hasn’t really put a priority on this, at leastit hasn’t made it their top priority. With the PS4 the features are more on parwith the Xbox One: online gaming service/community, access to apps likeNetflix, YouTube, Spotify, etc. The games (on PS4) are also more focused onproviding a great story, rather than simply letting people play online. Somegames do offer online play and a great campaign mode (The Last of Us, MetalGear Solid V), but the game experience is centred more on the campaign than theonline component. Some games just include campaign mode just to have a campaignmode (CoD: BO2). Those where the campaign is short and not as satisfying toplay through as other games, but the online component is more extensive.
