  • So the PlayStation has similar power, is cheaper and isn’t trying to squeeze every last penny out of the consumer with restrictive features. The xbone will have to be something special if it’s going beat this. It’s looking like Microsoft had dropped the ball on this one. See you later Xbox, hello PlayStation.
