Price and Versatility
Price was Confirmed as 399$ USD by Andrew House, which is 100$ USD cheaper then Xbox One and Looks much more Versatile however nothing is versatile in this Era of no proper quality control but I do guess that PlayStation’s Life duration would longer like usual compare to Xbox One. Gameplay’s they showed us at the conference was running on PlayStation 4 which proved everything including the graphic rendering but we should not forget one thing is “Games are not completed yet” and still the console looks pretty amazing with these features and decent price.
