Within just 24 hours of it’s release in the United States and Canada, Sony recorded a sale of over 1 million units of the latest version of PlayStation and aims at taking the number up to 5 million by the end of March next year. But, achieving a number that high might seem a bit tedious, as Microsoft’s Xbox One goes on sale on November 22. However, that’s not stopping Sony from holding on to the most prominent spot in the gaming console arena. Having said that, let’s now have a closer look at the features.

PlayStation 4 seems to be quite different from it’s predecessor’s. The console has no visible screws at all which prevents users from fiddling around with the gadget. Moreover, the PS4 is built in a way that notifies Sony in case the console is being dismantled.
Below the lower outer cover is the fan, the optical disk drive and the power supply unit. The PS4 packs in a 500 GB hard drive and 8 GB of GDDR5 RAM. Interestingly, the console also includes an additional secondary processor that contributes towards optimizing power consumption.
With every single component placed in the right spot, the PlayStation 4 is indeed a perfect piece of innovation. The console is expected to cost somewhere around Rs. 30,000, which shouldn’t really bother you too much if you plan to take your gaming spree to the next level.
