Probably go Xbox. Not 100%. Always had PlayStation but recently bought Xbox one s. Used to hate Xbox system but when I plugged in ps4 for first time in months it was really clunky and seemed miles apart from Xbox.

 

Same. Playstation often has some good exclusives, but they're often singleplayer and I mostly play online these days. I have lots of Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One titles that I want to carry over too.
