Xbox One Kinect and PlayStation 4

The consoles are already sold out at many retailers, Sony has sold one million PS4 units on just the launch date. It is likely that there won't be any Xbox One,Nintendo's Wii U is less powerful than the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in just about every way. It has a slower processor, a less powerful graphics solution, Both the Xbox One Kinect and PlayStation 4 camera can log you in on sight, but.The list of similarities between the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 is long.Today is the day: Xbox One is available in at least 13 territories. The PlayStation 4 launched last Friday to massive sales.

Xbox One

Neither the Xbox One nor the PlayStation 4 are backwards compatible with their immediate predecessors, which means not only can you not put in an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 disc and expect them to work but you can’t even download versions of the same games.
Sony has promised that in the future it will offer PlayStation 3 games via its Gaikai cloud streaming service, but when and how this will work remains unclear.According to Microsoft’s Albert Penello though the Xbox One doesn’t even have that vague hope. Although he couched his comments in a manner to imply that Gaikai wouldn’t work on PlayStation 4 either The PlayStation 4 is going to be released with a sale price of $399 while Microsoft is charging $499 for the Xbox One. In the past Sony has usually priced preceding consoles too high and this has been a mistake. The corporation is making sure not to do this again. The Xbox One will have a Kinect controller included, but pushing this as worth the extra cost is probably not the greatest of ideas.

the two versions Xbox One, PlayStation 4

The difference between the two versions, although not extremely pronounced, is immediately noticeable. The Xbox One version is running at 720p to the PlayStation 4′s higher-but-not-quite-optimal 900p resolution, and the difference shows in the more jagged outlines, and the generally subtly lower quality image on the Xbox version.Last night, the good folks over at Digital Foundry released a video that compared the gameplay footage of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the upcoming shooter, and, in a reversal from the trend this generation, it looks like the PS4 will be the machine to beat next gen as far as multiplats go.

PlayStation 4

Sony PlayStation 4 is one of the most anticipated releases of 2013 in the gaming world. Duking it out with the Xbox One from Microsoft, the PS4 is much more than a plain old games console, aiming to be a central hub for your digital home. After E3, Sony looks to be in the lead with its impressive PS4. A lower price, more powerful hardware and a popular stance against DRM from the off, put it ahead of its main rival after the first hurdle. Gaining favorable previews and plenty of pre-orders, the PS4 looks like the next-gen console to beat, and Sony says it was designed with an overarching theme of a “frictionless and seamless” gaming experience. Over 340,000 gamers attended the Gamescom consumer show to play games like Titanfall and Destiny on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles.

Sony/Microsoft/Nintendo console

The Xbox 360 infamously suffered from quality control problems. A study from SquareTrade indicated that within the first two years of ownership, 23.7% of Xbox 360s suffered system failures vs. 10% for PS3 owners and 2.7% of Wii owners.  The infamous "red rings of death", and even after repair, it would get so hot during gameplay that I could make steak and eggs on it. And of course, it didn't help that it was so loud that I needed 500 watts' worth of surround sound to hear what I was playing. But to its credit, Microsoft's customer service team was very responsive and helpful, and they eventually worked out the kinks.
Now, if Sony is going gangbusters to get to market this holiday season, there is a chance they'll suffer from quality-control problems, which will be very costly. Console gaming is a razor & blades business. The consoles sell at a loss to generate high-profitable royalties on individual game sales. If the PS4 suffers from a high repair or return rate, the losses are going to pile up.
Cycle-over-cycle, Sony/Microsoft/Nintendo console unit sales are up 25%, which frankly, isn't very impressive when the smartphone and tablet markets grew by 36% and 75% in Q4 of 2012, according to IDC As I stated above, the PS3 launched at a premium price relative to the Xbox 360 and Wii. The lower-priced PS3 was $499 at launch, while the most expensive Xbox 360 package was $399 and the Wii was just $249 including a game. Now, look at what's happened with recent video-game hardware. The Nintendo 3DS and Wii U have bombed, as has Sony's own PS Vita handheld. Assuming Sony wants to move some units in this tired market, will it have to take a lower price, driving larger-than-expected losses on PS4 console sales? And bringing back to the smartphone/tablet issue, will mass-market consumers (as in the casual audience) be willing to shell out another $400-500 for a gaming device after they've spent money on smartphones and tablets, whose technological sophistication is growing at a rapid rate.

PlayStation Vita

While the entire gaming media is eagerly anticipating a predicted announcement about a forthcoming PS4 at tomorrow's PlayStation Meeting 2013, Sony (NYSE:SNE) has already dropped some pretty big news concerning its handheld console the PlayStation Vita. Yesterday, Sony announced that on February 28 the price of the Vita will drop to 19,980 yen in Japan from its current price of 24,980 yen. Sony has yet to confirm whether a similar price drop will occur in America, but if it does, the handheld will likely go for $200, down from its current price of $250.The price cut is intentioned to boost the sales of the Vita, which have been sluggish since the Vita's launch last year. Sony is following the example of its rival company Nintendo (PINK:NTDOY), whose 3DS system performed poorly after its release, but later became one of its most profitable products after a substantial price cut.

Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4

According to a report from IGN yesterday, a few former AMD executives allegedly took major documents regarding the Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4 with them as they left the company and joined up with rival Nvidia.
AMD's lawsuit against the four former employees alleges they "absconded with thousands of confidential documents, including sensitive information about technologies at use in next-gen consoles."
 Sources have revealed that the PlayStation 4 will feature a custom silicon based on AMD's A8-series APU and HD 7670 GPU, while the Xbox 720 will combine an IBM PowerPC CPU and a custom version of AMD's 6670 GPU.
 One of the targets in the lawsuit is former VP of AMD's Strategic Division, Robert Feldstein, who helped develop custom hardware for current generation gaming systems.
AMD has been saying that he and some other people transferred around 100,000 files, which contain trade secrets concerning development.
All of that is based on "forensically-recovered data," which suggests the executive used external storage devices on his computer prior to leaving the company.
