Great initiative by Microsoft and Sony

Happy to see that the big corps see the value in independent game development.

Was a bit curious as to which would be the better platform in terms of development.

xbox1 vs ps4 graphics rumors

Forbes: 5best reasons for buying ps4

From the articles it seems that the ps4 is easier to develop with.
Personally I have been a loyal xbox 360 gamer for going onto 5 years now. I have enjoyed the system but originally I was a sony fan with the ps1, skipped the ps2, got a psp, which I also enjoyed, skipped the ps3 for xbox360 but honestly I miss sony, so definitely going with sony for next console upgrade.
