    • Mono Speaker and Stereo Headset port
    • 100mAh battery
  • PlayStation 4 Eye with 2 Cameras(both 1280×800) with 85 degree field view.

With all these features this is certainly a blow to the XBOX 360. Playstation 4 is a lot better in hardware and features wehn compared to XBOX 360, but again, Micrsoft is planning to launch their 720 version of XBOX for which the features are not yet known.

The 85 degree field view is certainly a lot more compared to XBOX’s kinect which can barely fit 2 people. Also XBOx don’t have an optical s/PDIF Audio out facility which is a common feature for most of the TV’s and Sound systems nowadays.

The custom processor makes it hard to make judgments about the processor, we will have to wait till it hits the market to know about the performance.
