Microsoft has confirmed that its next-generation video games console, the Xbox One, will be hitting Australian stores on November 22. A new pre-order bundle including the game FIFA 14 was also announced. With Christmas just around the corner, it’s time to make your decision: will it be the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One?

Why I'm Choosing PlayStation 4 Over Xbox One

Throughout this console generation, I have primarily been an Xbox 360 gamer. Whenever possible, I’d plump for the Xbox version of a game and rarely played PS3 exclusives unless work demanded it.
