Battle Of The Exclusives: PS4 vs Xbox One & How with Wii U..!

E3 expo 2013 has already fired the opening salvo with a big announcement on Xbox One, PS4, and EA showed us what was going to happen.

When it comes to the next generation of gaming hardware, Sony didn't show its cards quite as quick as its rival, instead calculating a pitch-perfect rebuttal to Microsoft at E3.

Now that both the Xbox One and PS4 have had their respective launch events and subsequent press conferences at E3, we're in a position to compare what they offer.

Microsoft may not need gamers to sell its console any more. Meanwhile Sony has fashioned itself into a pied piper of sorts — and the lure of its affordable, DRM-free PlayStation 4 may prove irresistable for serious gamers.

Here are the raw specs, with some further thoughts below.
