PlayStation 4 vs Xbox One – Which one to Buy?

    Benco Ad

    The battle between the Xbox One and Sony Play Station 4 will decide the future of home gaming. But choosing which to buy is easier said than done. At launch, the Xbox One was significantly more expensive than the PS4. It was down to the Xbox One’s inclusion of the Kinect sensor, a separate and fairly advanced piece of motion tracking hardware. However, that’s starting to change.
