I'm not gonna say the PS4 does F2P better, but I will say there is no comparison, Xbox doesn't have F2P, you need to pay for a gold membership in order to access the game, so it isn't really free-to-play, is it? Would you consider TF2, or DOTA 2 free if you had to pay a subscription fee for Steam?
No, You aren't paying for the game directly, but you still have to pay-to-play.

You still need to buy a PS Plus membership to play online multiplayer with a PS4 so it still has the pay wall the same as the Xbox One unless there is something i'm not aware of there.

First off, 2 da bombs. One for magicman's awesome gravity defying fails in the creativerse bomblive earlier in the week, not laughed so much in a good while.
And the second is Path of Exile vs the cheats, 14 disqualified from the 8/8 challenges and bans happening actively...this comes after GGG giving them a chance to stop with a warning going out to those that were using them(some claiming that it was used for quality of life particle removal)

Unfortunately for the question of the week i've not been console gaming since 360/ps3 but with the xbox ones being hidden behind gold membership(even if it is cheap) is off putting but for my prefrences, play station has the games i'm more likely to play.
