      Why would you click on this article if you’re not on PS4?

      Both the Xbox One and PS4 have roughly the same downtime. However, the Xbox One has had more outages than the PS4 the past few months. The Xbox One has had many server issues with many games. These are Activisions servers, not Sony’s. Also, more people are playing the PS4 version which means the servers for the PS4 version have to sustain more traffic so get the fk out of here with your Xbox fanboy bs.
