Video Gaming Consoles

So today we’re publishing a personal blog post by our owner Dave Colbat, he is going to be provide an extremely detailed review on what he believes is the best gaming console that is out at the moment. An avid PC gamer for much of his life, he actually is a firm believer that no console can compete with a top end gaming computer, however he is still going to provide some additional insight onto what he believes is the premier choice for gamers around the world, country and of course locally in Pembrokeshire too. Our detailed Xbox One vs PS4 comparison is more and more meaningful as time passes, particularly as we head into the Summer months and particularly with the release of a wide range of different virtual reality headsets for both the PC, Playstation 4 and also the Xbox One.

Xbox One

One quick note on this point is that currently there is no virtual reality headset that is compatible with either of the two consoles so we will not be weighing that into our review, there is a cool note though in that the Playstation VR is coming out very soon, it will be cheaper than the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive, however Microsoft have not announced any competitor to the Playstation VR. This may pose a problem for Xbox One owners as virtual reality becomes something of a standard component of a gaming console, this is something that we can expect within the next two to three years too – definitely something that is worth mentioning when it comes to people deciding which console is going to be the best fit for them. Both of the consoles have been out for around two years now, in terms of sales, the Playstation 4 has sold far more copies than Microsoft have with the Xbox One – currently the Playstation 4 has sold around about fifty million copies, whereas the Xbox One has only been sold around twenty five million times, a considerable difference and there is a long list of reasons for why we believe this is the case.


While these statistics alone do not really matter too much, it’s definitely a selling point in itself. The key point to be made is that Playstation only games are generally more popular than the Xbox variants, this is certainly the case with the PS4. In terms of hardware it’s difficult to pick between the two, they both perform at approximately the same level, with very few difference, however the PS4 does edge out the Xbox One slightly here too. Here at the Old Pharmacy hotel and restaurant we have a few people who sit either side of the fence, although it is a fairly unanimous decision company wide that the PS4 jailbreak is definitely better than the Xbox One. All in all though, if you have an endless budget, I would personally recommend going for a top notch gaming computer and then just purchasing a USB controller to plug into it – then you really do have the best of both worlds – brilliant, right?

PS4 Jailbreak

So today we are going to be talking about my PS4 Jailbreak that I did over the weekend and all of the new games that I have managed to get as a result of it. I was doing some reading over the weekend about how to jailbreak PS4 and realised that there are so many good things that can come out of it. There are a large number of resources online that can help users and guide them through all of the relatively easy steps, it took me just under thirty minutes to get it completed, I was slightly worried that it might go wrong but I haven’t actually had any issues whatsoever since setting it up. I think that people that haven’t actually had a go at this themselves will be pleasantly surprised with all the benefits that can be attained by doing so – it’s a pretty unknown scene but people have been working for many years at trying to find ways to jailbreak consoles effectively. In actuality the PS4 jailbreak was the longest in development of all the previous consoles, Sony had included a wide range of advanced technology on the PS4 to prevent users from learning how to jailbreak a PS4 but now that it is public and readily available, there is nothing stopping people from going online and reading about it.

PS4 Jailbreak

Some of the awesome benefits of jailbreaking a Playstation 4 are that it is really easy to download all of the latest PS4 games absolutely free. After spending 30 minutes learning how to do it and actually getting the job done, I found myself straight away going online to search for some new games to play. Within the following 24 hours I had already downloaded close to twenty titles and am now in the process of cleaning up some space on my PS4 to install all of them. I think I’m still slightly concerned that something is going to go wrong and I might brick my PS4, however I haven’t seen any signs of that happening so far so I’ll continue to use it as I do. One note that I will say, make sure that you turn off the internet when you are jailbreaking your PS4 and also make sure to turn off any automatic updates that are scheduled to occur – if you don’t do this then you run the risk of damaging your console when Sony release new updates.

I would highly recommend that you learn how to crack your PS4, it will enable you to get much more enjoyment out of your already expensive console, rather than having to save your pennies to put towards purchasing a new game. Simply follow the link to and you will be playing your new games in absolutely no time at all. Good luck to everybody who after reading this is keen to give it a go themselves, please let me know how it turns out in the comments section below. Many thanks from Dave at The Old Pharmacy for helping me with this post.
