Star Wars Battlefront

Not PS4 exclusive.

A PC is still more expensive than a console.

500 gb hard drive - 50 dollars
8gb ram  - 50 dollars
GTX 550Ti 1GB  - 130 dollars
Corsair Cx Series 600w Modular - 80 dollars
Intel Core i7 Processor i7-930 2.80GHz - 224 dollars
Xion Performance Meshed mATX USB 3.0 Tower Case XON-560_BK (Black/Blue) - 40 dollars
Total - 574 dollars, most likely more with any missed products

With PS4 retailing at 400 dollars, it's still much cheaper to get a console.

I wonder if the PS4 lets you post on forums.

It does. If the PS3 had a web browser, it's safe to say that the PS4 will have one too.

amd 6770 $80 and a bit more powerful and an Xbox 360's.

Intel Core i7 Processor i7-930 2.80GHz - 224 dollars

How can I say this, no. Xbox 360 Skyrim initial loading, about half a minute or so, my i5 (2.8 quad) initial loading time, 6-10 seconds, more like an i3 processos, which would be around $120.

Corsair Cx Series 600w Modular - 80 dollars

Mine was only $60 or $70 (name brand, 80+ bronze certified).

You did, however, forget to mention the CD drive ($15) and a motherboard ($75 for that type of PC).

But I'm not comparing to the Xbox 360. I'm comparing to the XBO and the PS4.

the CPU consists of two Quad-core Jaguar modules totaling 8 x86-64 cores. The system's GDDR5 memory is capable of running at a maximum clock frequency of 2.75GHz

From Wikipedia, this is the PS4.

Personally, I would say the PS4 deserves to beat the Xbox One, simply because it did everything right when it was released, it's less expensive, and it's almost identical to the internals of the One. It took Microsoft a while to realize people wanted to buy a game console so they could play games. Unfortunately, Xbox One has a better game lineup than PS4 (more popular franchises get more buys because people want the same thing over and over again).

If I was going to buy one, I would buy a PS4, even though I like the Xbox controller layout a bit more. Then again, the new PS4 controller has a mini touchpad and built-in microphone. The Xbox One controller has little grips on the joysticks so they're more comfortable and the batter pack for wireless controllers isn't sticking out of the bottom (a problem the PS3 wireless didn't have). I'm just kind of tired of Microsoft's crap. They made online gaming $70 a year (Xbox LIVE Gold Membership), and the price was originally $50. They made it more expensive because Xbox LIVE updated to feature ESPN. No one with a Gold membership cares about watching ESPN on their Xbox. They're way out of touch with gamers as far as extra features go.

But it's not released. Microsoft fixed all of the XBO's problems before release. The reason for the XBO being more expensive is the kinect. Having kinect as a mandatory component of every XBO allows for developers to work on having voice and movement features on games with full confidence that players will use them.

Seriously, what on earth are you talking about? I don't know about the olden days but for the last several years that I've had XBL it's been $60 per year, and I've heard NOTHING about it being raised to $70.

As for the price, that, again, can be justified by the $10,000,000,000 they spent on servers and cloud computing (I.E. external hardware, which makes it more powerful than the PS4 when it's used, like in TItanfall).

Well there's the deciding factor right there.
