The console war debate has been dominating the industry and internet ever since Sony announced the PS4 back in February. Its a breath of fresh both these companies showing some class, even though it just might be a marketing technique. Fans of both respective companies should follow suite and respect each others opinions.
Sony’s PS4 is currently available in North America. Microsoft’s Xbox One will launch next week.
