4. A sleek design
Another overlooked advantage of the PS4 that might also be one of the reasons behind its massive lead in sales, is the console’s design. The Xbox One is bulkier and has separate power brick, while the PS4 not only takes up less space on a desk but has a more attractive design as well, with sleek lines and a compact form factor. And it definitely also looks like a modern appliance, while the Xbox One is a bit retro-looking.
Also, the Xbox One’s bulkiness could be the reason behind the console’s poor sales in Japan, as Japanese consumers are space conscious and have bet on the PS4 and Nintendo’s Wii U for the entertainment needs instead of Microsoft’s console.
