Throughout this week, we're announcing the winners in the 2014 Lifehacker Awards. This one was always going to be close-fought: best games console. And the winner is . . .
Readers' Choice: PS4
Reflecting sales in the first year of the latest round of the console wars, the PS4 ultimately took first place. The Xbox One ran second — clearly we're ready to move on from the older generations.
Editor's Pick: PS4
We agree with the readers on this one. The PS4 had more functionality, a better range of launch games and just generally seems better planned as a platform.
Thanks everyone for voting! Keep checking back throughout the week for more winners.
