Developer confirms: PS4 is 50% more powerful than X1
The next generation of consoles is really close now, as PlayStation 4 will be releasing on 15th November in North America and 29th November in Europe, while Xbox One will hit stores on 22th November in both (although they will launch in far less countries than PS4 this year).
Obviously, the discussion on which one is better is heating up. PlayStation 4 has been deemed more powerful since the early leaks, but exactly how much has been a topic of discussion amongst enthusiasts, especially since Microsoft slightly overclocked both CPU and GPU in an attempt to close the gap. Well, thanks to the hawks at Neogaf we have spotted another opinion on the matter – and a pretty important one.
Adrian Chmielarz, former Creative Director at People Can Fly for games like Painkiller, Bulletstorm and Gears of War: Judgment, voiced it over Twitter:
I know that pure hardware specs are not the whole story, but man, all next-gen AAA devs I talk to say it's 50% speed difference…

@guch20 It's PS4 that is more powerful.
