PlayStation 4 vs Xbox One

tecno 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.

Update: PS4 2013 Model is no longer available. PS4 Slim is priced at Rs.55,000, PS4 Pro is priced at Rs.60,000 and PS4 VR is priced at Rs.65,000. Read more here
