PlayStation 4 vs XBox One: Which One Is Better?

Graphics, Processor and RAM

Both, PS4 and Xbox One use the CPU chip by AMD running on 8 cores, this is shift from the side of Microsoft as initially they were using the IBM PowerPC processor. The twist comes on the part of RAM where in Xbox One is limited to 8GB RAM DDR3 and Playstation 4 latches on to the 8GB RAM GDDR5 (which is something way superior to DDR3 RAM).

Gamers claim that there is not much difference in the graphics of the game which are being played on both the sections but if a user wants to enjoy the 'exclusive games' for Sony PlayStation 4 then the graphics will definitely outperform the same on Xbox One. The same is true for the exclusive games like Killer instinct, Project Spark etc.

Other Hardware Specs

PlayStation 4 misses out on the camera where Xbox One doubles its focus, it is the same one which is found on Kinect 2 (which as per the views is much better from the previous version).

Even if you choose to buy PS4 Eye separately then it cannot take on Kinect 2.0 because Kinect uses 1080 pixels camera along with the capability of processing 2GB of data per second (which is mainly responsible for much better performance as compared to the previous Kinect). You can also pick the option for DualShock 4 for motion control over PlayStation 4.

Design and Feel


Xbox One and PS4, both comes in a box shape. It's just that PlayStation 4 has two sleek rectangular slots which are kept over each other.

The unique feature which make Xbox One little bigger that PS4 is its Blu-Rau disc slot which is obviously missing in PlayStation 4.

Other Features

The channels provided by both the consoles are almost the same (but Xbox One takes some lead) such as Netflix, Amazon instant Video, HBO Go, Hulu Plus, ESPN, Red Box Instant etc. The hard drive available on the both the consoles is also same which is 500GB.

Unique Features

In Xbox One, HDMI port for the TV will let you control and record the TV shows, moreover as mentioned above about the Blu-Ray disc player is also a great option.

Whereas PS4 owners can boast about the remote play function, which can let the users play the games on PS4 using their PlayStation Vita (but Lag may hamper your gameplay).

If we are looking at typical Indian users who are actually price sensitive, PS4 will win over.

But in the end, both of them are really good and if Xbox One is expensive then it offers an additional camera. So, basically the brand loyalty will play a very important role for the customers to decide as to which one to go for. Finally, my personal preference will be on Xbox One due to larger chunk of channels, HALO 5 and Kinect 2.0.
