Sony’s PlayStation 4-$100 Less Than Xbox One, Only For $399.

The PlayStation 4 will launch in the US for $399 “this holiday season”.

On the other-hand Microsoft’s Xbox One, will launch in the US in November for $499. This brings the PS4 in at a full one hundred bucks cheaper than the Xbox One, with the One already facing its fair share of criticism.

Sony specifically targeted many of the things that the Xbox One has been publicly criticized for, from its lack of support for independent developers, to its publisher-set restrictions on the selling and trading of used games, to its requirement that gamers periodically connect their consoles to the Internet to authenticate their games. Sony says that the PS4 will have “no restrictions” on used games, and that PS4 game will require no online authentication. Sony just won a lot of fans. And I think you also know that.

The biggest surprise is the design. The Xbox One is a rectangular cuboid and the PS4 is a parallelepiped. Both are jet black, with incredibly sharp angles from edge to edge, the PS4 is just a bit more laid back, with a slight lean to its corners when compared to the Xbox One’s VCR-esque boxiness.
