Sony PlayStation 4

A next-generation PlayStation gaming and entertainment system from Sony that is currently scheduled to arrive in late 2013. At $399 the Sony PlayStation 4 is priced attractively to compete with the more expensive Microsoft Xbox One, which will retail for $499.

Furthering its aggressive play against the Xbox One system, the Sony PlayStation 4 also lacks the required internet connection as well as restrictions on the resale of used games that Microsoft’s Xbox One is expected to impose. At the same time, the Sony PlayStation 4 doesn’t offer the extensive entertainment connectivity that the Xbox One system offers, lacking Skype video support and the rich TV and movie content available through the Xbox One.
