The console is small
In comparison to the Xbox One, the PlayStation 4 is much smaller in size which is a good thing as it perfectly fits in any home entertainment setup. It is relatively more comfortable to carry as well. People often find this argument of console size irrelevant as gaming systems typically stay on the cabinet or entertainment set. However, with more and more entertainment devices available in your house today, more homes find it increasingly difficult to accommodate all their entertainment devices in the entertainment cabinet. This is where the PS4 excels as it is small enough to be placed along with other devices in the cabinet.
Games and more games
A primary reason for choosing a gaming console is its collection of games. Since 2013, the PlayStation 4’s game arsenal has grown tremendously. The PlayStation 4 has a lot of exclusive games which cannot be seen in the Xbox One game library. Trending games such as “Ratchet and Clank” and “Street Fighter V” are highly praised games exclusively available on the PlayStation 4 console, making it all the better than its counterpart.
Built-in controller headphone-jack
The PlayStation 4 controller comes with a built-in audio jack which is particularly handy for online gamers. This allows the player to hear all the game sounds through any headphone of choice saving the need to purchase anything extra for it. The same feature is available on the Xbox One but with the requirement to acquire appropriate equipment that allows the function to work.
The PlayStation 4 fetches a price tag of $399 while the Xbox One possesses a price tag of $499. The gamers cannot ignore the $100 difference for the same specs at a much-reduced price of the PS4. Due to this reason, PS4 has seen a boost in sales. Sony offers a bundle of features for the PS4 and at a much lower price, which is bound to attract more customers and buyers.
