The PlayStation 4 is the new Sony machine, arrives to compete with microsoft new console, although the PS4 has the advantage of being cheaper ($400 ) compared to the Xbox One ( $500).

From the beginning we can say that the PS4 unlike the xbox one has better graphics and is smaller than its competition, the design draws much attention , although its worth noting that the Xbox One comes with Kinect.

In the box we find the console, hdmi cable, dual shock 4 control, a micro usb cable and a earbud to chat online. There is only one model with 500gb of storage, the advantage is that the hard drive can be replaced by the user , if you use the playstation camera you have to spend $60 extra , but is not as advanced as the kinect.

The ps4 despite being small is very powerful , 8gb of ram an 8-core cpu , graphics card amd radeon TFLOP 1.84, wifi connectivity and bluetooth. Enough for the next years.

Perhaps the 500gb hard drive seems it will not be enough, considering that games are getting bigger. The advantage is that the hard disk can be replaced by the user. At the moment there are not many games but according to Sony more titles are coming. The dualshock 4 control is very similar to the previous version, it’s more comfortable, integrates a touchpad for some functionality in games, the L and R buttons have been improved, it still has the six-axis motion system, there is  a light that illuminates when charging and in use.

One of the best features is that you can connect a PS Vita to use the PlayStation 4 wirelessly without using tv, also some games can serve as a second screen.

The Good:
The Price.
Better graphics than the Xbox One.
Removable hard drive.
PS Vita connectivity.

The bad:
There are not many games yet.
It is not compatible with ps3 games.
Doesn’t support DLNA.

The successor of the ps3 is certainly a great improvement and certainly has advantages over the competition.
