Just to kind of give an opinion here, there's a lot of personal preference in picking the "better" console.
Where the PS4 shines:
--Non-gaming apps are free to use, while Microsoft makes you pay $60/year for Xbox LIVE Gold to use things like Netflix, and even Internet Explorer
--MLB 14: The Show, as the Xbox One has no baseball game
--Third-person adventure games, like Uncharted and God of War
--Stronger GPU, resulting in some games' getting higher-resolution releases, or higher frame rates at the same resolution
--Indie games everywhere
Where The Bone shines:
--Shooters, as Sony can't compare to Titanfall, Gears of War, or Halo; Killzone is pretty mediocre, and Resistance seems like it's over
--Sim racing, as Gran Turismo did not make it to the PS4, so Forza is the only sim racer around
--Frequent updates to the console, good software support
--Xbox LIVE Compute, which seems like it has solid potential to add some extra power/features to the platform, like Forza's Drivatars
As someone who doesn't care about Uncharted or The Last of Us, and has been on Xbox LIVE for 11+ years anyway, I prefer the Microsoft experience. The only thing Sony has that I want is baseball, and it's not worth a console purchase on its own. I'm bigger on shooters than anything, and Microsoft does them better. I have a 720p TV, so I don't care if the One's games launch at a lower resolution than the PS4, I can't tell. The One has the games I like, and that's what it comes down to, for me. However, there are certainly cases where the PS4 is better (only wanting multi-platform games, which look better on PS4 most of the time, only playing games offline and wanting to use Netflix, wanting The Elder Scrolls Online, which doesn't take a sub on PS4 but does on Xbox LIVE).
