Which console would survive a 15 ft drop, PS4 or Xbox One?

The age old question of which is better, PS4 or Xbox One. This time, the tests have nothing to do with the internal components.


As part of Wire’s Battle Damage, the team attempts to drop both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One from varying heights to see which one is the sturdiest, and the loser gets the chainsaw treatment.

At first they drop both consoles from a 5 ft height, then they drop them from 15 ft. I won’t spoil the end result here, so give it a watch.

Forget the power disparity between the two consoles, this is what you should be fighting over.
