PLAYSTATION 4, OR XBOX ONE?

PLAYSTATION 4, OR XBOX ONE?

WHEN THE NEW MODELS OF PLAYSTATION AND XBOX WERE LAUNCHED INTO THE MARKET SUCCESSIVELY, THE WORLD OF GAMES GOT STIRRED. NOW, THERE IS A DIFFICULT CHOICE FOR GAME ENTHUSIASTS TO MAKE.

When Microsoft introduced Xbox 360, the year was 2005; when Sony launched PlayStation 3, it was 2006. Therefore, making a decision was. However, when the companies introduced their long-awaited model one after the other at the end of 2013, making a choice became harder. Moreover, the fact that Xbox is now also focused on entertainment and PlayStation offers everything that a player wants, has changed the conditions compared with the previous comparison.

PlayStation 4
Design
Not shown even at its launching, the device is smaller in size than its initial photos. Although it has an in-built power supply, it occupies less space than before. The glossy section, which has a removable cover, is very cool.

Controller
The keys Start and Select gave way to Share and Option in the Dual Shock 4 game controller, which is far more ergonomic than the controller in the previous model.

The real change, however, is the clickable touch pad. This pad does not work in the menus but works well with the games.

Performance
New versions of Call of Duty and Battlefield games can be played at higher resolutions compared with Xbox One. Moreover, since the 8-GB memory in PS4 is GDDR5, it offers a faster use. However, it cannot operate the games at 4 K resolution, which is four times the Full HD resolution.

Camera
Like Xbox One’s Kinect, PS4’s camera is not included in the box. PlayStation Camera, which is an improved version of Move, is sold separately and can measure depth with two lenses. Also, it enables access recognizing the owner by face. Control via voice is very fast in passing between games.

Technical features
8 core AMD Jaguar processor, 500 GB (expandable) hard disk, 8 GB GDDR5 memory, Blue-ray and DVD driver, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, 2 x USB 3.0 connection, 275 x 53 x 305 mm size.

Xbox One
Design
At first sight, it reminds one of the VHS videos of the 90s. It looks ungainly especially when compared with PS4. Moreover, power supply is unfortunately not in-built, and so creates an unsightly scene. We should also add that the console cannot be positioned vertically.

Controller
Being aware of how successful Xbox 360’s controller is, Microsoft designed One’s controller in a similar manner. Size and weight are almost the same but the Home key is placed in the enlarged space above, direction keys are recessed and the keys on the back side are oviform.

Performance
You will usually see games that can be played at 720p (HD Ready or 1280×720 pixels) resolutions. The number of games like 1080p Forza Motorsport 5 will increase in time. Weak though it may be, it makes up with other features such as TV entertainment. It is also possible to connect satellite receiver and control via voice.

Camera
Kinect carries the design style of Xbox One and is included in the box. Its 1080p infrared sensor can see even at night. Measurements of distance are fast and can easily perceive movements. Voice recognition technology makes non-controller use easier once you get used to it.

Technical features
8 core AMD 1,75 GHz processor, 500 GB (expandable with external disc) storage, 8 GB DDR3 memory, Blue-ray and DVD driver, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, 3xUSB 3.0 connection, 333x274x79 mm size.
