Now that both Sony and Microsoft have announced their new 8th generation computer consoles which will hit the shops in time for Christmas, the question is which is better? We compare the specs of Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One and will give you the low-down.
The retail price for PlayStation 4 will come in €100 cheaper than their counterpart but both will require a remortgaging of the house with PlayStation at €399 and Xbox at €499. While it may seem an exorbitantly price for either device considering both come from Asian sweatshops, the price has been carefully decided, says Gaming Guru, Hiratsuka Saguta:
“The price for the consoles has been set in place for their target buyers, which are spoiled children who put excessive amounts of pressure on their parents to get them stuff. Wouldn’t you rather your child die of hypothermia because you can’t afford heating, than for them to die of embarrassment because they can’t inform their adolescent peers, that they have the latest fad computing device?”
Both consoles here have a host of extras that come with the consoles such as a DVD/Blueray player, 3DTV support, Bluetooth, online gaming etc. But it is Sony that’s victorious again with the PlayStation 4 having many benefits over its rival. Extras include less restrictions on buying and selling games, more memory (RAM and HDD) and ability for offline gaming. Bar the console acting as a gaming device and DVD player, it also acts as a sandwich toaster and will have a fleshlight attachment for a new ‘interactive’ adult’s version of the Sims.
So which console should you buy? Microsoft’s, 1984 Big-brother-style monitoring system, over-priced paperweight or Sony’s lovely, adult friendly device? Our recommendation: buy both. Sure why not? If you can afford to waste your money on one console, you should be able to afford to waste money on two.
