The PS4 seemed to have first dibs on everything from the release date to the popularity, but the Xbox One could end up as the game console that is better equipped for the future.

Microsoft has rebounded from a bumpy start to the new gaming generation by creating buzz this week when it announced there would be dedicated servers for Xbox One gamers. Furthermore, the Xbox One has a wide variety of interactive and special features beyond just playing the actual game. This includes an exclusive partnership with the NFL to bring football action to the game console as well as improvements to Xbox Live that could help bring gamers together via a news feed that would be similar to what we would find on Twitter. These features and additions could help the Xbox One thrive in the coming years as other technology becomes more connected as well.

And although the Xbox One has a higher price at the moment, the game consoles tend to drop in price a little while after release. After Microsoft and retailers slash the price, they will still be able to argue that the price dropped and use that as a marketing tool; the prices between the Xbox One and PS4 could eventually even out to the point where nobody even remembers the initial cost.

Xbox's Director of Product Planning recently said in a video that he believes the Xbox One is perfectly suited for the future and that the creators had that in mind all along.

"Being built for the future is one of the principles that we had when we built the Xbox One," he said. "We want to build a system that preserved the best of console gaming, so that developers can write to the metal, they can continue to optimize, they can continue to build better looking games over time and also have this part of the system reserved for the future."
