Playstation 4 Tech Specs


Sony’s Playstation 4 console is hitting UK shore’s on the 29th of November 2013, just one week after its rival; Microsoft’s Xbox One. One of the deal breakers when choosing which console you want is the price, with the PS4 costing almost £100 less than the Xbox One will the hardware suffer, and will it be inferior console as a consequence? The easy answer to that question is no, both consoles run the exact same processor and analysts believe there will be minimal difference in performance between the two.
