    Why the PS4 is better. The controller is more advanced and more comfortable. Better Exclusives games, More Powerful/Better Hardware,Cheaper,PS+ is cheaper and better than Xbox Live in every way. PS4 will be Backwards Compatible. The Hard-drive on PS4 is up-gradable not on Xbox One. PS4 doesn’t require PS+ to do simple things like watch netflix or use the web Browser unlike Xbox One’s Paywall. The PS4 Design is way better and doesn’t require a Big power brick like the Xbox One,PS4 has remote play with Vita, The included PS4 headset does voice commands the same as Kinect!!!! I can go on and on…………

    • More powerful hardware doesn’t always equal the better console, if it did it would make our lives easier to declare a winner each generation :)

      Personally I am really enjoying the Xbox One and not just the gaming elements, so I’m happy.
