Let the Battle Begin! Xbox One vs PS4
Sony Computer Entertainment released the specs of the PS4, and provides plan of the new world for us before the Microsoft Xbox One. Xbox One published its specs in the market after few months of PS4. The releasing date of Xbox one is 22 Sept, 2013 and PS4 will be released just a week before Xbox One, 15 Sept, 2013. Microsoft mentioned Xbox one price $499.99 and price of PS4 is $399.99.
PS4 and Xbox are not even released but battle between is started. It seems that Sony is winning the competition because Play Station made their announcement first. It takes the mind of every gamer towards them. On the other hand, Xbox is looking desperate to grip up the attention of gamers in the market.
Sony announced that they will put live streaming in PS4 but Xbox One is not yet announced anything about live streaming yet. At the beginning, both of consoles PS4 and Xbox One were sure, whether they will go for live streaming or not. After some time passage, PS4 announced for live streaming but Xbox One is still not so sure. Microsoft did put live streaming function in Xbox 360. The functionality which was in Xbox 360 and will not be in Xbox One can create bad impression on gamers.
Xbox always had charged subscription fees for the better system they make for the gamers. But, PlayStation never had charged for subscription fees. Lower cost attracts gamers towards PlayStation.
In the press conference, PlayStation did not tell anything about the subscription fees. It creates a view that they were trying to get feedback to sort this thing out. Finally, PlayStation announced that they will not charge for games. PSN will remain free for gamers.
Gamers can control features by their voices. Xbox One has this fabulous feature but PS4 may not. Since both consoles put motion control features in it. Gamers feel uncomfortable if they don’t get voice command function with motion control. In PS4, voice commands are possible with PlayStation Eye camera.
Motion Control feature increases the interest of gamers towards gaming consoles. PS4 will upgrade the feature of motion control but Xbox One will go with same Kinect. Wii came up with this amazing feature with Nintendo. It seems that Nintendo is falling down in charts now days.
A gaming console is now not only the gaming consoles only. Gamers can Skype with friends and family on consoles. Moreover, Gamers love to play xbox game and also video call with the competitor or partner in game. Xbox One gives this facility of communicating and gaming. PS4 is not sure to give this facility to their gamers.
Always Online Connection
PS4 does not need 24/7 connection to run its applications. There were rumors about always online connection in PS4. It is now cleared, PS4 does not need connection but Microsoft’s Xbox One need connection all the time to run their app’s.
Used Game Fees
Nobody likes to pay for the used games. Every gamer wishes not to pay for used games. PS4 won’t charge their gamers of used games. But air is pregnant with the rumor that Xbox One will charge for used games. If is it true, then this could be the reason of downfall of Xbox One.
Possible Mandatory Installs
There are mandatory installs of games in PS4. But that doesn’t mean that every game will be installed. Some gamers argue that in PS3 it was mandatory to install but some gamers will go for it. If PS4 did mandatory installs than PS4 will sure make it simple for gamers.
Plenty of Storage
New coming games need high fps but also need large amount of storage. Microsoft provides plenty of storage for their gamers. They provide 500GB in Xbox One. PS4 did not tell yet the storage, but it seems like PS4 will also go for 500GB or more.
There is a lot of research has been conducted by the Sony and Microsoft to know the required minimum specs. Gaming console is something like a computer made for only games. Both Sony and Microsoft know how to meet gamer’s requirements in gaming consoles.
It would be a disadvantage if gamer’s cannot movies on their gaming consoles. So they both, Microsoft and Sony provides Blue-ray/DVD in Xbox one and PS4. Gamers will be happy to see this and use their consoles for many things.
We saw both controller pictures. And everyone go for the Xbox One controller because of classy design. But don’t forget that Xbox One controller will use AA batteries. After analyzing we got to know that PS4 controller is upgraded version of PS3 controller. It is simple and fast and having a new button of sharing your screen shots.
Xbox One design is same old 80’s VCR shape. This will get pretty amount of dust and fingerprints. But at least they release their design before PS4. PS4 design will be sleeker version of previous models.
