Supply & Demand: PS4 Is Worth More Than Xbox One

NowGamer: "Published on Dec 5, 2013
Everything is worth what its purchaser will pay. That's the saying, anyway, and judging by the hiked prices of the PS4 and the Xbox One, this is certainly looking to be true.

So while you would scoff at the idea of paying £700 for an Xbox One, a desperate parent looking to get hold of the console before Christmas likely world. In fact, it could well have already happened.

With the concept of supply and demand businesses can get a better judge of the value of a product. That's not to be confused with its price - in the case of these consoles the RRP of £349.99 for PS4 and £429.99 for Xbox One - but instead what a product is worth." (Microsoft, PS4, Sony, Xbox One)

Doesn't surprise me given all the problems Microsoft have been having with Xbox One.

You make it sound as if the PS4 has no flaws. Last i heard this isnt the case.

Certainly, the ps4 is under priced by Sony. Great for gamers, but I'm sure it's pretty frustrating for their stock holders. If I had to guess, the ps4 would have had similar popularity, even at $500, do Sony is leaving a lot of money on the table. I hope the strategy pays off for then in the long run

Too long I've fight like a mad demon giving raging demon to people
Swinging lightning swords scar h in one hand excalibure in the other
To long we fight this useless console war
To long we spill our gut on gaming forums fighting troll sites like polygon
To long we prayed to the gaming gods to grant us a miracle
To long we fight so Microsoft draconian ways don't bare fruitation

To long sarcasm

They are not identical in every way. One costs $100 more, but for no good reason. Not identical.
NeoTribe  +   319d ago
Almost identical in everyway? Are you slow or somethin because there not at all close to being the same. 1080 is far better than 720, ps4 ram, gpu, dvr, streaming, game loading, he compatibility, design, network infrastructure and exclusives. Ps4 literally does everything better by a decent amount. There is no identical in any form lol. Ps4 is a beast hardware and software wise. There currently is no competition between the two, and it tells by the sales.

I find it funny that sum people think because the ps4 is cheaper then the xbox one that, that automatically means the ps4 is the inferior system lol.

Also the worst is now that microsoft forced kinect in every box all of sudden its userbase is trying to make it seem like its the reason why the xbox one is a true next gen system but forgot the fact that it still needs batteries for its controller which is 80s technology lol, & it is an inferior system specs wise. I'll give u kinect as an advantage but that is not going to sway me to pay $100 more for it. I'll be going to mcdonalds to try an get a free one & if not ill just use my brothers xbox one.

Point is, I dont care what ppl prefer because its your own choice but its just hilarious how first it was xbl is better because of cross game chat & now all this crap about its more future proof lol. GTFOH & just go enjoy your system of choice but stop trying so hard, its just too hilarious. Im looking at u Belking & others i wont even bother naming lol.

i mean… to xbots it makes perfect sense… pay more therefore better….

yet, funny thing is the ps4 is cheaper by 100 dollars, yet is worth IMO 100 more than the current price of the x1

it is purely childish antics that drive the stupid xbots
example : "hurrr durrr my system cost 500 yours 400 mine is better cause my mommy and daddy paid more" that is typically what every xbot fanboy currently has on ps4 owners… the price difference…which in essence they are purely getting ripped off by paying an extra 100 for a lesser device but they get to run around and say theres cost more.

I like the ps4 but honestly these articles are becoming too much,day in day out same article different title

ya think? xbox one...LOL!
stinkytofus  +   319d ago
just buy the system with the games that you will want to play

with the positive feedback and sales number that ps4 is getting, more 3rd party support for sure

multiplats "should" definitely be better on ps4, 3rd party games will be "must own" on sonys platform rather than on xbox one or wii u

ps4 is the console to own this generation

last generation sony alienated games with $600 price tag, funny how $400 price tag swayed them back this generation

next next generation launch, consoles should be costing $500...

It is many, many more things than the Xbox One.
