The new PlayStation 4 may look similar to Microsoft’s new Xbox One console, but Sony has put a clear line in the sand between its rival after announcing that the PS4 will cost $399 — $100 cheaper than Microsoft — while there will be no restrictions on used games, while the console will not require an Internet connection.
Speaking at E3, the company confirmed the two important announcements and that gives it an early advantage point over Microsoft, which has imposed restrictions on used game on Xbox One. Microsoft previously confirmed that users must connect to the Internet one-time per 24 hours to continue playing — an issue that has raised eyebrows among gamers.
Microsoft showed off the new Xbox One earlier today (Monday) at E3. The Xbox One will arrive this November with a price of $499, initially going on sale in 21 markets, costing €499 in Europe and £429 in the UK.
