Playstation 4 has finally hit stores. Launched in November 15, 2013, Playstation 4 was able to hit stores in the United States, and after a few weeks worldwide. It had one million units sold in just 24 hours. This just shows that Sony was indeed number one in the gaming community. Playstation fans rejoice, as most of them finally got their hands on this new console. As of December 28, 2013, Sony was able to sell 4.2million PS4’s worldwide. These numbers are huge and clearly they beat Microsoft’s Xbox One console. The PS4 is more powerful than the Xbox one, not only in graphics and specs, but also in the numbers of sale. Sony’s new problem is that they don’t have enough PS4 to sell, they need to produce more PS4’s. This is really insane, and because of this, you won’t find any PS4 in the local stores today, and if you do find one, it’s hard to find. Sony wasn’t able to predict this, hence, the unit is sold out in most retail stores. Truly, this is a huge success for Sony. Indeed the PS4 has arrived, and it’s safe to say that it’s going to be this generation’s winner console if it keeps on doing what it’s doing. The Playstation 4 is purely dedicated for gamers and not some lame console like the Xbox one, which focuses on TV and games. Playstation 4 is for the gamer and Sony is smart enough to focus on the gamer alone. These statements may be surprising but after the “wrong moves” that Xbox made with its DRM issues before, the PS4 chooses to fight back its competitor, of which lead Microsoft in changing their restrictive and dumb policies.
The Playstation 4’s design is awesome. It’s slim and sexy, it has a parallelogram shape, it really looks slick. This is opposite with the Xbox One, the Xbox One looks like an old VCR and is very bulky. Xbox one’s look is really ugly especially if you compare it with the PS4. So far, it’s safe to say that the PS4 is the best option if you really are a gamer. Playstation 4 has always been better not only in power but its overall design and price tag. The Playstation 4 costs around $399 while the Xbox One costs around $499. If you’re a hardcore gamer and you love to focus on games and not TV, then the Playstation 4 is for you.
