The battle between these two consoles became steaming hot after the companies started to publish games for them. We bring you the pros and cons of both devices.
Few users will decide only on the basis of design, but it is definitely important to some extent. Therefore, we will mention that the Xbox is noticeably larger and almost a kilogram heavier than its Japanese competitor.
In this segment, the Xbox is slightly in advantage since it comes with WiFi 802.11 a / b / g / n standards ( PS4 doesn’t have a) and support for channels 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz (PS4 supports only 2.4 GHz). Both systems have 500 GB of storage and can be changed for larger capacity. In PS4 there is no option to add external hard drive, while the Xbox has that option, but the disk must be a minimum capacity of 256 MB and USB 3.0 standard.
In one year the number of titles have gone to about 100 for each console. Each company offers a certain exclusivity if you choose their console. So with Microsoft you get the possibility to pick the very popular Titanfall and Halo franchise. On the other hand, PS4 offers Infamous: Second Son, LittleBigPlanet 3 and Driveclub.
The difference in price between these two consoles is in favors of PS4 (500 – 580 dollars). However, it is important to emphasize what you get in the box. When you open the PS4 there is a console waiting for you, one DualShock 4 controller, HDMI cable, a micro-USB cable, subscription of 30 days for PS Plus service and a headset. Xbox One arrives to customers in a box containing the console, one controller, Kinect camera, HDMI cable, headphones and a two-week subscription to Xbox Live Gold service. No micro-USB cable because the controller runs on batteries.
