The two consoles share similarities, but also have differences, in the hardware enclosed within them, their online services, and the games that they offer players.

Along with improvements to the previous version, the DualShock 4 comes with a light bar on the front and a touchpad in the center (Greenwald). In contrast, the Xbox One’s controller is nothing more than a

“The PS4, for instance, has a larger and faster graphics processing unit than the Xbox One (its peak GPU shader throughput hits 1.84 teraflops per second while the Xbox One manages 1.31). Likewise, Sony's console has more advanced RAM (5500MHz GDDR5 versus the Xbox One's 2133MHz DDR3)” (Leaño). This allows the PS4 to run the games at just a hair higher quality. Not a big deal overall as the difference is not noticeable unless you put them side by side. On top of that, the One has a far more intuitive Operating System (OS) than the PS4. The OS on the One allows it to run apps in the background or use the snap feature on most apps to have it alongside your game or current window. How is this useful?
