The PC, Wii U, and mobile devices all serve as viable and excellent video game platforms; virtual reality gaming is sure to make some noise throughout 2016; but there’s no competition in the industry more intriguing than the market duel between the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Both platforms cultivate a brand loyalty and industry progression similar to that seen in the old days of the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo–with two brands constantly pushing each other to innovate in hopes of becoming the most groundbreaking mainstream gaming platform on the market. PlayStation pretty much walked away with 2014, and after this year’s E3, it seemed as if 2015 would pan out the same.
