The two gaming consoles have been duking it out for the top position since they debuted more than 20 years ago. Which do you know best? Take this quiz to see which reigns supreme!
Sony introduced the PlayStation game console in the United States in 1995.
On Nov. 14, 2001, Bill Gates helped launch the Xbox at the Times Square Toys R Us location.
In the very first weekend, more than 100,000 PlayStation units were sold.
The first Xbox sold for $299. Months after the console's North American release, Microsoft slashed its price to $199.
Concerns about the $299 price tag were dashed when more than 1 million Xbox consoles sold within the first three weeks.
A key component to the initial success of the Xbox was the popularity of its exclusive game, "Halo."
"Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" became synonymous with PlayStation.
PlayStation's Polygon Man was a jagged purple head meant to show off the 3-D visuals that looked great in 1995. He was nixed before the gaming console ever made it to the United States.
That was also PlayStation. One of its more notable features was its black-bottomed discs, which were very different from CDs at the time.
"Final Fantasy" was first available on the Nintendo Entertainment System but eventually became available on Xbox and PlayStation.
PlayStation had Crash, a crazy marsupial who collected fruit, loved jumping on boxes and hated his creator and nemesis Dr. Neo Cortex.
One-time Xbox exec Peter Moore tattooed his right arm with the "Halo 2" logo and its release date, Nov. 9.
"Madden NFL 09" was the last original Xbox game.
The game, which has caused controversy in its many iterations, is still ranked among PlayStation's most popular.
It's actually one of PlayStation's rarest. The only way to originally get the Working Designs shooter (which included a gold-plated GunCon) was to be one of the lucky 50 to win it at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in 1999.
"Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic" is one of the original Xbox games and also considered one of the console's best.
Gamers bought more than 2.5 million units ($25 million worth) of the much-anticipated sequel in the first 24 hours the game was available.
Microsoft released the Xbox 360 on May 12, 2005, almost a full year before the PlayStation 3.
The PS3 includes a Blu-ray player (not a DVD player), WiFi, an Internet browser, 160 GB or 320 GB of storage and free access to the PlayStation Network.
That would be Xbox. The Kinect is a motion sensing input device that allows users to control and interact with their console without using a game controller.
Players on the PS4 can simply tap the share button to save their last 15 minutes of gameplay, grab a screenshot of what they're playing or start streaming live.
When production of the Xbox officially ended in 2005, the final tally of consoles sold was around 24 million.
The Xbox One was released in 2013.
"Metal Gear Solid," the third game in the "Metal Gear" series, was released on PlayStation in 1998.
True. The racing game, which is exclusive to Xbox One, includes more than 450 cars and 26 tracks, 10 of which are new to the series.
SNK's Neo Geo machine was the first to offer external memory card usage.
"Resident Evil" is known as Biohazard in Japan.
Steven Spielberg created the storyline in "Medal of Honor."
