With Sony and Microsoft both holding press conferences and releasing new info about their upcoming gaming devices, it seems like it’s about that time again: the console wars are starting back up. Today’s infographic from Mashable gives us a side-by-side comparison of what we know about the mysterious new Xbox One and Playstation 4.

Microsoft’s press conference was most recent and most revealing, so naturally we know a little more about the Xbox One than the PS4 at the moment. We know that the Xbox One will have cool features such as cloud storage, voice commands and motion control, but it also may have a few traits that seem less than desirable, such as a fee for playing used games and the need to always be online. In the other corner, Sony has kept the specs for its PS4 close to the vest so far, not revealing much about the console other than it will have a touch-screen on the controller and it will play Blu-Ray discs and also have cloud storage.

The final verdict isn’t out on either console yet, so there is likely plenty more to come from both sides up until the consoles launch. For more info have a look at the graphic below. [Via]
