Its the battle of the console kings: The Xbox one and PS4. Both have created a rage in the market, and with over 75 million units sold all over the world, it is quite tough to decide which one is better of the two. Here is a comparison to help you come up with the correct decision:
DESIGN: Design wise, both the consoles are way different. Xbox one is larger in size, while Sony Play Station 4 is slimmer and light weight.
Xbox one is 10% bigger than Xbox 360. It weighs slightly higher, at 3kg, compared to PS4 at 2.8kg. The extra size in Xbox One is perhaps due to the concerns of overheating found in its predecessor. There’s inclusion of an extra case for cooling purposes.
Obviously, it is a matter of personal preference, but the Xbox One fits better under your television as compared to Sony PS4.
POWER and GRAPHICS:
Both pack the octa core AMD x86 CPUs and with 8GB of RAM, expect powerful game experience. What separates the two consoles, is the type of RAM packed. Type of RAM in Xbox One is DDR3 variety and that in PS4 is GDDR5. PS4 has slightly more bandwidth that Xbox One that implies the former has a visual edge over the latter.
That said, two features of Xbox One that make it worth buying are:
- Controller: Gaming controller in Xbox One is more comfortable and also versatile. It can be used to play games on PCs as well. It may not look so power packed on the outside, but on the inside, the story is totally different. Ask hundreds of core gamers and you will find out for yourself.
- Versatility: Xbox One works as a gaming console, movie player, Browser, TV and a streaming gadget too. Who knows, it may be the one to which all others can plug in, until the Xbox one eventually becomes a replacement. If you are looking for an all-in-one device, Xbox One is definitely the right console.
Possibility of Crossplay between PS3 and PS4:
PS3 and PS4 users can play games together online, though it is down to the choice of developers. Sony also announced its first headset, “Turtle Beach Ear Force PX4” that is compatible with PS4 console. What’s great is, users can choose the headset for almost all compatible devices, not just the console.
