Since my son left home, he's take his Playstations.
I've found my G27 wheel is only compatible if I buy other devices to make it work on a PS4. And if that worked, then the wheel would also work on an Xbox.
I've noted on the threads here for Sims, that Forza hasn't got one that's regularly updated. So, I'm guessing Forza is not the best around.
My question is, should I buy an Xbox one (the one with Ultra 4k Blue ray, or a Sony PS4 Pro? And I don't have a blue ray player, and I do have an Ultra 4K TV. Although for most racing games, I am likely to pick the game station up and put into into my gym room, which has a 50% plasma, so game resolution will be 1080 only, most of the time.
I've read reviews of games and such, and the platforms, and they typical comment is that the PS4 is cheaper, and that it has better leaf rendition ... and besides that, they are much the same although the Xbox renders 40% faster but its exclusive games are not as good as the Sony's are.
I'm confused too about downloading movies etc - it seems the PS4 is better at that than the Xbox one - not sure how that can be??
I have cable internet, ethernet available where the game machine will be.
I have a powerful high end AV receiver too (just bought it but not yet installed), so downloading 4K movies has some appeal. I have not installed the 4k Ultra TV yet - should do so next week.
As far as Sim games go - I've liked the way you have to earn a car in Gran Turismo games. For me, on line racing might be great, but I'm probably not as fast as I was last time I online raced - which is maybe 3 years ago. I won't be as fast now as I was then either ... so the game side is probably more important than it was.
I don't play any other games either ... I'd feel uncomfortable doing that ... while driving with a wheel is actually good for me I reckon, my pulse goes right up and I work quite hard ...
Leave it to you guys as to the best choice.
