Good side by side. Can see the Xbox is higher in most, except the HDD speed. So it should load a little faster; however despite the big IO difference I don't think it will be too noticeable at those speeds when there's only 16GB of RAM to load anything into either console could load data fast enough to be negligibly noticeable, much less notice a big difference. We'll see though
Acknowledgement of a good design, semi rip off with normal PS stick placement. Wonder how much the touch pad thing will still be used in new games. I hated the little I ever play my PS4 and had to use it or having to hit the small buttons near it for anything - hopefully it's just there more for backward compatibility than required use.
