Microsoft's push to take over the living room, the Xbox One places a bigger than ever importance on entertainment in addition to gaming. It uses voice recognition to control live TV and switch between apps or games, and the new Kinect sensor enables gestures to control content, even displaying apps side-by-side in Snap Mode like in Windows 8. The Xbox One features an in-game DVR feature to record and share game footage from the system's built-in 500GB HDD, and is powered by an 8-core processor and 8GB of RAM.

Description

Sony's PlayStation 4 was announced in February 2013 with some hardware specs but not much else. Fully unveiled at E3 2013, the PS4 is Sony's attempt at a gaming focused console, rather than one that tries to be a media center. Based on a "supercharged PC architecture," with an X86 processor, enhanced PC-style GPU, and 8GB of GDDR5 unified high-speed memory, the PS4 is slightly more powerful than the Xbox One, despite its smaller size.
