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.
