Why Indian Gamers May Prefer Sony PS4 To Xbox One

As an entertainment centre the Xbox One is heavily reliant on high speed internet access; with apps like Netflix and HuluPlus which are based on video streaming via internet. Unfortunately, both these apps work only in a select number of countries, India and other countries excluded through geo-targeting techniques. In addition to these restrictions, Microsoft’s plans of launching a host of entertainment apps such as ESPN, FOX Now and other Video on Demand services are also likely to be restricted. (Industry, PS4, Xbox One)

Because maybe the Xbox1 is a unfinished product outside of the U.S.

It's a known fact that the media side of the Xbox1 is severely lacking, because certain things are just unavailable to many outside countries. I'm sure this will most likely change, but the question on many peoples minds is when?

Its plays games...if it didn't then that's a issue.

Not if Microsoft is advertising it as an "All in One entertainment system". Seriously, when they focus so much on these features and aps that aren't available where I live, it makes me feel like a third rate customer.

Because of its great support of Indie games? :)

They prefer neither...PC all the way..
I am an Indian and have been eagerly waiting for PS4 release here, but at the price point of 39990 (around 650$)no one in their right mind will go for it (Unless they are filthy rich)
I don't think Xbox one will be priced lower..
So next gen consoles can wait for an year or two until there is a price cut
We can actually build an above average PC with 650 dollars, with all the steam sales, indie bundles etc..its way cheaper to game on PC, even the PC retail games are cheaper when compared to console retail games (1500 rupees (23$) for pc retail against 4000 rupees (60$)for console games)
Oh and all streaming and media is much easier on PC.
