Performance Gap Between PS4 & X1 Not Disappearing

A few days ago, XboxAchievements posted an excerpt of an interview with Lorne Lanning, titled “Performance Gap Between Xbox One And PS4 Will Disappear, Says Oddworld Creator“.

We had already scheduled an interview of our own with Just Add Water CEO Stewart Gilray, so I took the opportunity to ask him about this, since the article garnered a lot of attention on the Web. It turns out that Lanning had been completely misinterpreted, and in truth it would be “physically impossible” for Xbox One performance to align with PlayStation 4’s:

Actually that is NOT what he said. I spoke to Lorne afterwards and what he meant when speaking to that guy was that budgets, schedules and perceivable differences would narrow, NOT that the Xbox One performance is improving to align with PS4, that is just physically impossible. The PS4 has MORE COMPUTE units, and faster memory and a whole bunch of things, that would make that physically impossible to happen.

As I imagined, then, Lanning had been merely referring to development costs and the likes, certainly not the performance – the hardware can’t change, after all, and there is only so much that a driver update can do.

Of course, this leaves us wondering if Xbox One will start getting 1080P@60FPS titles regularly anytime soon. What do you think? Let us know below, and be sure to check back in a few days for our full interview with Gilray; in the meantime, you can read Lanning’s thoughts on self-publishing on Xbox One, which we reported about just yesterday.

    This guy has been in the news alot

  • hiawa23

    I own both consoles, but 1080/30 is fine if that is the best performance they can get out the console, it is what it is.

    • andy

      But it can hardly do that which is more of the problem. The only games to have done it so far are less intensive genres like car games and last gen engine games and even then a game like Thief barely ran on the Xbone no where near 1080p.

      • extermin8or2

        I being fair thief barely ran on anything it was abysmally programmed. Mgs5:GZ being the better example 720p at 30 fps on xb1 and 1080p at 60fps on ps4 WITH extra effects like the atmospheric ones for clouds, rain etc. Personally im fine with 30fps too but I do expect 1080p or at least approaching it. I know pc elitists will go in but really the difference between 30 and 60fps is barely percievable in anything thats not a first person shooter and even then the differemce isnt THAT massive.

        • Head Blackman

          why are you lying? correct the ps4’s resolution is 1080p and the x1 is 720p but they both run at 60fps.

          http://www.ign.com/videos/2014/02/17/news-new-metal-gear-solid-720p-on-xbox-one-1080p-on-ps4

        • YOUDIEMOFO

          Oh man I agree with you, but one thing I will have to say is that once you have ever played on a system (PC) that can give you more than 120fps on 120+hz monitors……..games feel and look like a dream.

          Never will I upgrade monitors to anything else other than 120+hz since now everything else is irrelevant and lackluster in comparison. It is that different take my word for it.

          And it will only get better for PC enthusiasts when Nvidia releases their G-Sync monitors…… That tech is revolutionary and is epic to the PC “gamer” and or consumer in general.

    • YOUDIEMOFO

      Would be okay if they would keep it at a minimum 30fps, but their own games can not even do that.

    • Michael Cardwell

      I own both as well and use my X1 more actually… Still both are great!

      • hiawa23

        I agree, i actually prefer the U I on the X1 to the PS4, but looking forward to games from both platforms. Don’t get into all the fanboy nonsense.

  • Trim Dose

    bu… but…buuT, Titanfall is 4k 120 FPS, Forza is 60 frames glory and shitzzzz and itzz costss mooore, sooo is more powerfulll, rigght… riight ???

    • YOUDIEMOFO

      That is funny to…… People actually think that the games will one day support 4k on the XBOne. Yeah okay!

      Witcher 3 will be a huge difference between consoles in regards to performance and maybe even size. I might have to buy that one on PC though not sure yet.

      • extermin8or2

        I think it’ll have 30 fps 1080p on ps4 and 60fps whatever resolution on pc. But as for the actual game fidelity etc… hmmm I think pc willbhave an extra level up (ultra) but exactly what specs youd need for that… I expect it’ll be high. My pcs ageing abit and uni is expensive lol so its pretty much ps4 only for the next few years for me. I’m wondering how well arkham knights going to run on ps4 though-rocksteady said they were going for parity but if that means they infact downtone the ps4 version I’d be annoyed. Although seeing as 2/3 previous batman games had exclusive playstation content theres a good chance they dont care about ms being annoyed or not…

        • YOUDIEMOFO

          Have to wait and see…. What’s great about a console is you can always rent it before buying and having to play a churched version or level of a game and have to make your choice off of that alone.

          Not bragging, but my PC is boss, so I expect devs to take everything to 11 on PC’s since the new systems are on par with a high-low to mid grade PC. At least I hope devs do that this time around.

        • Xtreme Derp

          You’ll need a $350-400+ GPU to run Witcher 3 at 1080p 60 avg on very high or ultra settings. It’s a very demanding next gen game.

    • maybe

      Just a horrible attempt at making fun/flaming towards anyone or anything. Just felt you should know.

    • Xtreme Derp

      Albert Penello’s magical snake oil will upgrade the Xbox, just wait.

  • YOUDIEMOFO

    HAHAHAHAHAH……. Fail!!

    What else can people say to make it more obvious…..the poor system was not developed for games and they (Microlo$t) really messed up this time.

    So keep throwing billions at your xbox devision to attempt to keep it afloat.

    • Michael Cardwell

      We could not and let game consoles die….. Yeah lets do that. You and your fanboy trash

      • 2223

        ???

      • cozomel

        What? You speak English man? F*cking stupid fanboy. Whats the matter, you gonna cry? Dont like facts.

      • YOUDIEMOFO

        Sorry mate, but facts this time around tell a different story….

      • Xtreme Derp

        I’m sure Microsoft shareholders are eager to lose more billions of dollars on Xbox to make fanboys like you happy.

        • Guest

          Right now Sony is on pace to LOSE a conservatively projected $1B on the whole as a company when they announce Q4 “earnings”.

          • Xtreme Derp

            Sony will be fine, MS shareholders are sharpening their knives for the Xbox division that has lost them billions and will lose even more soon.

          • xoj_21

            its normal they are resustrure, but new sony is stronger than microsoft in gaming

          • Hugo Stiglitz

            Sony is gonna sell off either it’s music division or it’s movie division. Each of those is worth billions. Plus their gaming division is kicking ass right now. They’ll be fine.

    • Xtreme Derp

      Keep digging!!

      • YOUDIEMOFO

        HAHAHAHAHAH now that is some funny stuff!!!

      • Lag-Fighting Tactics

        Just shutup, the NDA means the second GPU is still locked from Developers’
        Try saying that in 2017 when the unlocking keys are released to them.
        Over 8TF of raw unlocked power.
        X-rays prove this.

        • William Cochrane

          there is No way you really believe this bullshit

      • BoozerX
      • RoadShow

        Wow that is awesome

    • Lag-Fighting Tactics

      We wanted a media machine that can do games.
      And We wanted and even asked for TV viewing achievements.
      Something the PS4 cant do!

      • YOUDIEMOFO

        Did you just say “TV Viewing” achievements….?! Keep on watching your “tv” guy….. Wowo…….people these days.

  • Mike C

    PS4 doesn’t have faster memory.

    • Vulcanproject

      It has much faster system RAM. Xbox One has a pitifully small amount of embedded RAM to try and compensate for that fact (it doesn’t fully)

      • Mike C

        i’ll take your word for it, all I know is the esram is faster than the GDDR5

        • Vulcanproject

          So is the eDRAM in Xbox 360, but when you only have a very small amount of it then you are obviously going to be limited by that. The eSRAM is only in the console because Microsoft used slow main memory ill suited to high performance graphics processing and needed something to try to patch over that weakness.

          A large block of faster memory, for example like GDDR5 is much more of an ideal solution in terms of performance and developer accessibility. That is what PS4 has.

        • Xtreme Derp

          It’s only “theoretically faster” at 192GB/s assuming perfect read/write patterns. In actual usage in real world games it’s slower than GDDR5.

          • Mike C

            is the exact same for the GDDR5 ram in the PS4.

    • Snorlax

      PS4 has GDDR5, which is used in high end top of the line graphics cards. Xbox One has the very slow DDR3 with an eSRAM. They tried to fix the bottleneck (DDR3) with another bottleneck (eSRAM). Epic fail by Microsoft.

    • Xtreme Derp

      Wrong.

    • cozomel

      Yes it does, 176GB/s GDDR5 vs 68.3GB/s DDR3 and 32MB of eSRAM running at 102GB/S (yes i know 204GB/s if its doing read and write at the same time. But guess what that number only applies in certain uncommon situations)

  • jacksjus

    Well that clears that up now doesn’t it?

    • cozomel

      No, no it doesnt, they’ll continue to grasp at straws

  • RoadShow

    Wow and all the xbots around the world took this and ran with it. Xbox 720 – xbox 720p indeed

    • cozomel

      Cuz they are delusional idiots who want tobelive harder than anything that the X1 is as powerful as the PS4 (and no, im not saying the PS4 is all that powerful). But the reality is staring everybody in the face, just look at the multiplat differences, Facts tell the truth (copyrighted, if anyone wants to use that, give me credit, ha ha)

      • Xtreme Derp

        The truth is out there, man! Just wait, misterxmedia was right!

      • Rhea Burton

        From the beginning it has always been made visible the ps4 was more powerful than the x1, but how significant was unknown, if all the difference is 1080p vs 720p or 900p then xbox1 owners don’t have much to worry about, but if games can’t work on the x1 due to being underpowered then there’s a real issue.

        • sampson3121

          they wish it was just the resolution here are some facts :

          XBOX ONE GPU:

          1.18 TF GPU (12 CUs) for games

          768 Shaders

          48 Texture units

          16 ROPS

          2 ACE/ 16 queues

          PLAYSTATION 4 GPU:

          1.84TF GPU (18 CUs) for games + 56%

          1152 Shaders +50%

          72 Texture units +50%

          32 ROPS + 100%

          8 ACE/64 queues +300%

          • Rhea Burton

            I don’t know why im replying to,you but anyway spouting numbers you know,nothing about proves what?my post states ps4 is more powerful end of. If games being made cannot work on the x1 then there’s an issue, but so far that has not been seen.

            • sampson3121

              i understand that 10 is more then 5…see i understand numbers.
              i also understand that paying less or the same price for a console that is more powerful with great games as well as a service that will let me play ps1,2 and 3 games in the near future is a great buy. i just looked at the numbers before i shelled out the money.and so far it was the best choice…that’s an opinion of course, but the numbers are fact.

      • Arnold Stallone

        even if it’s an xbox manager who says the ps4 is much more powerful than the xbox one, an xbot won’t believe him, and will say that’s not true.

        *welcome to the fantastic community of clever people and proud owners of an xbox*

      • Lag-Fighting Tactics

        Laugh all you want as the second GPU hasn’t been unlocked yet.
        NDA with AMD expires in 2017, then see who has the best specs.
        Microsoft cant release the unlocking keys to developers’ until then.

        • Rory Breslin

          So technically what you’re saying is that PS4 owners will be laughing for 4 years before the XBOX 1 will unlock this second GPU, which in 2017 will match the PS4. Really man this is your argument ?? I’m not sticking up either console i prefer to stay neutral but I just had to comment under this, 4 years man!! 4 years.

          • Lag-Fighting Tactics

            It will not match the PS4, it’s a generation ahead.
            that’s why the NDA is in place.
            Microsoft is it wasn’t a race and we agree with them.
            They also said 4k gaming, but that’s also in years to come.
            At no point did we say we wanted every game at 1080p on release day. Show me a link, where we as the users asked for that.
            We didn’t. But in 2017 we then will ask for our games at 1080p 60fps

          • Lag-Fighting Tactics

            we agree with Microsoft when they said it’s not a race.
            more power will be released over it’s life time.
            And we have titanfall.
            We are better and more loyal fans.
            X-ray shows dark silicon.

            • Kim Sanderhoff

              I just had to jump in here. You do know that MS has said several times that there is no second GPU? Why do you say “we” as if you represent an entire group of people? Loyal fans, sure… and MS is shitting in your mouth and you will gladly swallow.

              Don’t make this into a religion. Just take the specs for what they are. You could easily buy both consoles anyway, if you wanted.

              • Lag-Fighting Tactics

                They aren’t on the design team,
                just PR people that aren’t part of the dark silicon team. NDA is a big restriction in MS speaking about the second GPU.
                in 2017 (early 2018 if the NDA release is delayed at the lastest) they can freely talk about it.
                We only speak on behalf of the true fans.
                Specs haven’t been fully listed, we totally agree with Microsoft keeping the reserved power until later, very clever as it has a 10 year cycle.

            • sampson3121

              you’re just a sad little man!

        • William Cochrane

          So AMD have tied MS in tech that will be 4 YEARS old before they are allowed to announce it ? Makes perfect sense.

          • Lag-Fighting Tactics

            Yes it does sense, you get it, because the tech is very advanced, and DX12 is just released, They need time to make the games, and learn the new GPU. And unlocking all the power at the 1/2 life of the system.
            We asked for this as fans and will stand by Microsoft.
            We didn’t want Microsoft to show all it’s cards to Sony, so they would release a weaker system thinking it was better first.

            • cozomel

              lagfighting is absolutely right. Yeah you dumb ponies!

        • Adam420

          Are you really that stupid? So ur saying that in 4 years AMD will allow M$ to use what they paid for already, when the the console war will already be won by Sony? Again I ask, are you really that stupid? Just get over it PS4 has won… Even if your stupidity comes true, thats 4 whole years that Sony has to dominate, not to mention new consoles will be in the works by then…. Stupid Xbot…. believe what you like but jesus at least believe in something not so stupid!

        • cozomel

          Damn, you got me, you’re right, in 2017 that second dGPU will be unleashed, Im so scared. Help!

          • Xtreme Derp

            He can see into the matrix, he’s The One!

        • Hugo Stiglitz

          Dummy, the second chip is for game capturing. PS4 has one too. It has 256 MB of RAM on its own.

        • sampson3121

          MS already said there is no second GPU …but if you believe it has one? keep the dream alive brotha.

        • TeKnicalXTC

          Well new systems come out about every 5 years so waiting 4 years to max out the potential of the X1 is ridiculous, when the new system will be coming out in the next year or so.

      • You are flat out wrong

        HEY KLOWN DERP…GIMME SUM MEDS BRO, MY BUTTHURT IS KILLING ME AFTER THE GREAT NEWS ABOUT KLOUD By microsoft. THE XBONE IS BECOMING MORE POWERFUL i am scared to death. PLEASE ENTERTAIN MEEEE

        • cozomel

          Your butthurts cuz you got that MS d*ck up your arse. And I’ll be laughing at you when this never comes to fruition. Tell fanny, when’s this coming out /happening? Oh yeah, thats right, never! Have fun with your “hopes”

    • http://youtube.com/boogie2988 Boogie2988

      I was just on the phone with Major Nelson and he confirmed that the power of the cloud will make the XBOX ONE 10X more powerful than the PS4 before the end of the year. #YoLo

      • Xtreme Derp

        Well glad that’s cleared up, then.

      • Phil Balliet

        Jump Ahead.

      • Bruno Dutra

        That is great for people like me that have a 2mb internet connection OH WAIT.. Also I hope PS4 does the same with da cloud.

        • Hugo Stiglitz

          Actually I think you mean a 2 GB connection. Even then, it wouldn’t be enough to actually improve graphics.

    • Failz

      You count your chickens to early. And its going to bite you hard. Give it a year or 2 once X1 gets its DX12 and Azure Cloud running. If by then its underperforming then your right however I don’t see that happening.

      I couldn’t care either way. I game on a gaming rig that has more power then a PS4 and X1 put together. 4k gaming awaits me. Good luck with fake 1080p.

      • You are flat out wrong

        DX12 is going to get you faster porting and nothing else. “Da clawd” won’t be relevant or practical for a decade.

        You honestly think you can get 4K on a 1.2TF GPU when PCs with Titan cards struggle to do so with decent framerates? Get out of here.

        • Failz

          4k is already available for PCs. Titanfall on PC is getting a 4k patch and so are the future games coming to PC. Regardless of the drops in frames, ill be playing it in 4k. If I need more power to run it smoother then ill just buy something better. Cant do that on consoles. Your stuck with playing Killzone MP at sub 1080p and BF4 at 900p. The consoles have only been out for afew months and already struggling to keep up.

          • You are flat out wrong

            I was referring to the Xbone, you mongler. But you’re right, both consoles won’t do 4K. Which makes Larry Herb’s PR even funnier!

          • Alan Parker

            Not everyone out there is a graphics whore, because people like me only care about graphics if it benefits the game.

          • Logical Reason

            Hey dude, how about you address your false and made up “DX12 and cloud will make it better!” claims.

            For one, DX12 is simply a more efficient API…something the PS4 has already had. So this will in no way bring the X1 closer.

            Cloud power is a joke and won’t reach the level MS talks about this generation.

            Not to mention the hardware differences as is.

            PLEASE explain to me how you think a GPU with 768 cores is going to match one with 1152 cores? Just tell me that.

            Idiot.

      • Xtreme Derp

        You can always tell the Xbots hiding behind their claimed high end PCs.

      • RoadShow

        Keep dreaming buddy.

        • Xtreme Derp

          Better update that since free bundled Titanfall + price drops failed to move more than 400-500k consoles in March.

            Yeah. Don’t let facts get in the way, Derp, will you?

    • rlira

      as if the whole potential of the console would be placed in hardware … These companies still have much to learn from the players, they ignore, launch games for the mass, but actually forget to put new ideas into their games. Alias ​​the majority does not accept changes in the very way to make games that are more focused on charts in the fun itself. Left much time caring about the player to care about what really matters to them, only money

  • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

    When is this silliness going to end? I love my Xbox One and I love my ps4. Who cares how many god Damn teraflops blah blah ddr3 ddr5 blah blah. I play games for the games. I think the games are looking beautiful on both consoles. Ryse on xbox and infamous on ps4. All I need to know is that both consoles are going to put out beautiful games in the future !

    • maybe

      strongly agree with you. Can’t wait till the war settles and we can get to news about games and how they play out/what content is included. Rather than what res and fps they have.

      • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

        Ah I knew there was a few sensible gamers left in the world! It’s totally gotten out of hand. Anyone who actually believes playing a game in 900p or 720p upscaled to 1080p actually matters is delusional. The sad fact is that the only thing these numbers are used for is ammunition for fanboys of different consoles to use to call out the other platform. It’s ridiculous. I totally understand being passionate about a certain platform like playstation or xbox but I will never ever understand why that makes people talk crap about its competition.. it’s like they try to make themselves believe that the other system sucks . Why? I have no idea. I wish they understood the fact that their console of choice has competition is nothing but good. If they didn’t have competition they would become complacent and not deliver the best value or push the bar for graphics, gameplay etc.. just like Sony did back when they released the ps3. They thought they were the king and didn’t listen to their customers and as a result xbox stole a ton of market share… just like xbox did this time around. They were too confident and didn’t work hard enough for their customers loyalty and paid for it dearly. I just wish these fanboys would get their heads out of their you know where and wake up.. end rant. Haha

        • Xtreme Derp

          Your opinion is clearly in the minority as PS4 is outselling Xbox almost 2:1 globally. With multiplat games performance is the main difference and most people will choose the cheaper, better performing system.

          You seem to hate facts that aren’t in your favorite system’s favor and want people to stop talking about tech in a blog about tech. Just typical whining and trying to shut down facts and discussion.

          • Failz

            Globally? are you stupid? X1 isn’t sold globally, its available in 13 countries where as PS4 is sold in 50+. Math hurts doesn’t it.

            • Xtreme Derp

              PS4 6 million, Xbox 3.5 million by end of Feb 2014. PS4 will still outsell Xbox globally March 2014 despite price drops and Titanfall bundles. PS4 likely at 7 million, Xbox 4 million by end of Mar 2014. That’s 1.75:1 globally. And PS4 is still very supply constrained in some countries.

              Xbox will hardly sell anything in smaller “tier 2″ markets already dominated by PS3 and PS4. The global gap is growing wider and won’t stop, Xbox will never surpass PS4 in global sales. End of story.

        • cozomel

          guy, you aint fooling anybody, you’re a straight up MS fanboy and apologist, give it up. If the tech dont matter then stick with the 360

      • cozomel

        So stick with the 360, its got way more games and the war has settled there, you clown. You people are pathetic.

        • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

          Haha you’re killing me dude. The only thing pathetic here is your silly opinions. Why would we stick with 360 when we can play highly upgraded games on an xbox one or a ps4? They look beautiful on both consoles and both consoles have great games. That’s why we upgrade. Sad silly little man

          • cozomel

            You’re the clown making excuses but im the silly one? You’re the one here trying to defend inferiority. Sad silly little man

            Well if you are to upgrade and you don’t see the difference in resolution, by example, you may notice the frame rate drops… And the hole in your wallet… You pick your poison.

          don’t see how i’m pathetic when I just want to see more things on games rather than people bringing up things we already know and have known for what seems like ages now.

      So tell me, whats the point in upgrading Hardware if the Hardware doesnt matter? So many kids these days with this flawed logic.
      Casual

      • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

        Seriously? The hardware does matter. Very much so. Both consoles upgraded their hardware to the specifications that they thought was right for the future they have planned. Both systems will run the same games. I’m saying it doesn’t matter if one runs the game at 900p upscaled to 1080p and the other does 1080p natively. It just doesn’t matter. Do you realize that the xbox 360 had 512 megabytes of ram? Consoles hardware is in a fixed state and are made for gaming. Look at the beautiful games this past generation turned out.. using 512mb of ram. Do you understand now why it doesn’t matter? These consoles both have 8 gigs of ram. There is years and years of time to make the games on these platforms improve tenfold. .. yet I have the flawed logic. I’m sorry that somehow you’ve convinced yourself if your game of call of duty isn’t in 1080p natively your eyes will melt.

          Wow, talk about naive. MS and Sony didnt uprade their systems to what they thought was right for the future, they upgraded their HW to lowest possible configuratio they thought they could get away with. And MS went even further those dumba$$es. And it doesnt matter if one game is 900p vs 1080p, well how about 720p, cuz thats what alot of these X1 games run at. Look guy, you’re not fooling anyone, you’re nothing but a apologist. And people like you are the reason they can get away with this.

          “I’m sorry that somehow you’ve convinced yourself if your game of call of duty isn’t in 1080p natively your eyes will melt”

            The rest of the power unlocking is
            in 2017, for the second GPU, this so happen is when we would like 1080p games, but for now we don’t need them.

              I honestly can’t believe you keep spouting 2017, you’re an idiot. If you have to wait four years for your console to hit 1080 native on every game, why did you bother buying an Xbox 1 already. Just stay with the 360 , it does pretty much everything the X1 does but hell of a lot cheaper.

          Seriously, this shows ignorance… The sega master system was much better than the nes in almost every way concievable (colors, sprites) but it had about zero 3rd party support because of clauses nintendo had in their contracts with most of them… However it had a couple of true gems, like Phantasy Star, kenseiden, power strike, etc.

          It was a very nice little machine for its time (it does not have the place the nes has, but it does have a place)

        You’re part of the problem dude. I’m trying to say it doesn’t matter. When you sit here calling people fanboys it just shows that you’re on the opposite side shouting about how ps4 is better because It’s a little more powerful. Jesus Christ has nothing I said gotten through?

        • Xtreme Derp

          “The facts don’t matter”, of course, especially since they’re not in your favor. We should let delusional Microsoft fanboys spread lies and tech nonsense all day long and nobody should correct them. LOL in your dreams.

          If you want a hugbox this isn’t the place for you.You’re in a specs thread whining “it doesn’t matter”. If you really didn’t care you wouldn’t be here. Just typical attempts to shut down a conversation you don’t like.

          Apparently 720 to 1080p and 30 to 60 fps is more than “a little more powerful” considering PS4 is outselling Xbox almost 2:1 globally. Your opinion is in the small minority and you’re whining about people who are RIGHT correcting imbecile fanboys that are constantly delusional and WRONG.

          • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

            Lol you’re sad man. Sitting here calling me a Xbox fanboy because I think you’re retarded. I love my playstation 4. I also love my Xbox One. I bought my Xbox One fully knowing that it offered something different than the ps4. It’s slightly less powerful but the only effects you see is a game running at a slightlY lower resolution on some games. If you really think that matters you’re just delusional. Both consoles offer something different. Xbox is a little underpowered but I enjoy all the media options that come with it. I love having my tv hooked into my Xbox One and being able to navigate everything with my voice. On the flip side I really enjoy my ps4 controller I think it’s awesome as well I think ps+ is awesome and the sharing system they set up. If all you care about is if a game is running at 720p or 1080p you’ve missed the point by friend. It’s quite sad. Not only that I think both consoles have awesome exclusives which is another reason why I love my Xbox One as well as my ps4.

    • angh

      Both consoles are very good. Both of them deliver great graphic and games. Problem is that many xbox fanboys cannot understand that xbox one is and will be weaker, which can lead to slight worse graphic there, which wont’t really affect anything and hardly be visible. And playstation fanboys will always argue about it instead of simply let it go.
      I’m chosing the ps4 simply because there was no games on x360 I’d like to play except maybe 3-4 titles, and I had great library of games on ps3. If there will be more games I’m interested in on xbox I will buy it without problem. Still, I’ll get multiplatforms on ps4. And fanboys? They always will be here, this is the Internet.

      • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

        Yea for sure. Ps4 is more powerful and I’m glad. I loved playing infamous second son it was gorgeous.. but xbox one has a lot of awesome features I use daily and love. It also has a lot of good exclusives I’m really enjoying and looking forward to. I guess I just truly don’t understand fanboyism.. it makes people miss out on awesome gaming experiences just because they are in love with one certain console.

        • Xtreme Derp

          You mistake “factually correcting idiots who think Xbox is more powerful” with “fanboy”.

    • Rich Hutnik

      One is paying MORE money for LESS horsepower with the ONE, as opposed to the PS4. That is a BIG deal. Unless one is hyped about the exclusives on the ONE, or the ability to talk to a camera, this IS a big deal. The ONE games either clock in at a lower resolution or half the frame rate. YET, people need to pay more. And with this comes the XBOX side saying how graphics, frame rate, etc… do not matter. Well, if that is the case, why not buy a Wii U?

  • Xtreme Derp

    Whoops, another fresh round of crow for the dumb as rocks, straw grasping, constantly WRONG Microsoft fanboys.

  • ariessiren

    Both consoles are great, but when buying a next-gen console I expect it to be a huge upgrade. fact the Xbox one is seriously underpowered and overpriced. its not like the ps3 where it just took them longer to figure out. PS3 was stronger and the games proved this. it just took developers some time to learn the architecture. Was Never under powered. The xbox is just not up to speed. it’s not a question of untapped potential is a question of the system literally is just not that strong. if it was equal, and they were just having problems then yeah it would just be a matter of time but that’s not the case like the PS3.

    • Xtreme Derp

      Bu bu bu just wait!

      • ariessiren

        For 499… I ain’t waiting lol. I wouldn’t pay more than 299 for that thing. But it has great games. Ki and dead rising are great. But not worth the cash

        • Xtreme Derp

          I might get one for $275-300 that’s about what the graphics power is worth compared to PS4.

          • ariessiren

            Exactly. It doesn’t suck, it’s just not worth the price for what you get. I have had a 1080 p TV for years and now I’m finally utilizing that it feels so amazing. We 720p all last Gen, no excuse for new consoles to not be 1080 and 60fps. PS4 offers this in spades with room to spare. all of my friends who bought an Xbox one have seriously regret it or trade it in. That swery game is the one that kills me. I want it! D4 I think it is. Looks crazy good

            • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

              Lol did you know that last gen the games were upscaled to 720p from a much lower res.. that’s what I’m talking about when I say up scaling to 1080 from 720p and so on doesn’t matter in the slightest. But anyway there will always be guys who need to justify their fanboy mindset

              • Xtreme Derp

                Some last gen games were upscaled from 640p to 720p, which is minor compared to 720p to 1080p or 225% more pixels.

                It’s very obvious you’re a delusional, asshurt Microsoft fanboy trying to downplay far greater differences between PS4 and Xbox by pointing to small last gen differences. Stop whining and leave, you’re wrong that “it doesn’t matter” to most people, and proving yourself dumber by the minute.

                Once again the majority of people, 2:1, will ignore you and buy a PS4 anyway.

                • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

                  Lol some? Yeah. Most? No. Most games were much lower than 640p native. Haha It kills me that you have to keep calling me a Microsoft fanboy even though I’ve stated many times that I own and love my ps4. because it’s obvious it’s your go-to defense when anyone challenges your extremely sad cognitive dissonance. Haha oh man what a train wreck. There’s really no need to continue this conversation. It sucks you’re missing out on great games on the xbox one though. Youd swear to god that Sony puts food on your table it’s like you’re scared to even think about admitting anything else but playstation is any good. Lol good luck with all that. I just beat infamous second son a few days ago.. and now I’m playing titanfall. It’s great.

                  • Xtreme Derp

                    You’re colossally stupid, WRONG, and dumb as a brick. Most PS3/360 games were 640-720p that is a FACT. I’m sorry you’re such a drooling tard that you’re incapable of comprehending the most basic resolution facts.

                    WROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG

                    Mentally ill, delusional, worthless, dumb as rocks Microsoft fanboy is angry that PS4 is significantly more powerful, has more developer support, and outselling Xbox almost 2:1 globally.

              • Jecht_Sin

                It is true for some, not most, as well as the PS3 has games running at 1080p. Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, for example. Also GT5 and GT6, although they use less than 1920 columns. FF XIII, which is all but a small game runs at 720p with the cutscenes at 1080p. On PS3, obviously. On X360 it is a mess. Or look at Tomb Raider. The game is simply amazing even at its full 720p resolution.

                In any case that could be forgiven on the first HD generation, I can’t accept to upgrade to “next gen” and still to deal with sub HD, frame rate losses down to 20fps, screen tearing. I’d keep my PS3 forever if that was going to be case. But it isn’t with the PS4.

                • Xtreme Derp

    • datdude

      Yes, there is no end to my amazement to all the dummies who keep praying to dem cloouuudddzzz for more power and performance when Greg Williams, a key engineer in the development process for xbone, said waaayy back in early 2013 that, and I quote, “xbox does not target high end graphics”. That was before the reveal of the xbone. How much more plainly do you want it? The writing is on the wall, and has been for quite some time. Shame so many among us can’t read.

        Just like you xbots consider Titanfall an exclusive because it isn’t on the PS4, so it also works the other way around since it’s not on the XO so it’s a PS4 exclusive.

        Jesus, what does that make you then? You just love to bash any console that isn’t Sony related. You spend more time bashing other consoles than you do playing your own. Do we need to go back in time and see that the powerful consoles didn’t always “win” this stupid kiddy war? Ps2 was underpowered and that console sold more than Xbox. Xbox 360 wasn’t more powerful than the PS3 but it “won.” Grow up and just enjoy the games you get. Also, if i was on your end, i’d be scared, Sony is going bankrupt and it gets worse everyday.

        • Xtreme Derp

          LOL. Dumb as a brick and delusional. PS4 is outselling Xbox almost 2:1 globally, 7 million to 4 million. What does that tell you about “sales”? Imbecile.

          I don’t bash consoles, I bash idiot fanboys who think Xbox is as or more powerful and think it’s going to catch up in sales. It won’t, keep crying about it, fanboy.

          • Joe shickler

            PS4 is in more territories… Good one. are all your arguments about sales and power? Xbox One is a hit, and it’s going to only get better with new SDK’s, DX12, Exlucsives using Tiled Resources, and all that. I will admit there is a hardware difference, but its how the machine utilizes everything, not just the hardware.

            • Xtreme Derp

              LOL. Tier 2 country launches won’t do jack for Xbox sales and if you had half a brain you’d know it.

              All of that is straw grasping. PS4 will have better performing games for the entire generation as it has more powerful hardware, you can’t overcome a hardware gap with better drivers/SDKs.

              • Joe shickler

                I never said it would overcome a hardware gap as that’s impossible without an interchange of hardware. I’m saying its how the machine utilizes everything. SDK’s, DX12, and Tiled Resources (Mainly on exclusives) will help general performance. Also, i know you don’t want to hear this but, the cloud servers will also help significantly… granted you have a good connection to the server itself. Xbox One has more room to improve because of Microsofts picks for the machine. They made it so DX12 was compatible and they said they have plenty of other surprises in store.

    You people are babies, all of you. Fanboyism is the dumbest shit I’ve ever seen in my life. Both Microsoft and Sony are corporations that only care to make a buck off you. They don’t give a shit about you or how you’re doing, they are driven by cash. With that in mind why the fuck do you fight so hard on their behalf? When you’re sitting here with a console superiority complex bitching and moaning about how much better your console is instead of actually playing the fucking thing and enjoying it then you live a sad, pathetic life. You give all gamers a bad name. Enjoy what you bought, who the fuck cares what someone else chose, it’s not like your fucking tax dollars went towards their decision. You have no stake in what another person buys so grow the fuck up already.

    • datdude

      Very angry and upset this one is. He must have bought an xbone.

      • Xtreme Derp

        You can always tell the whiners are closet Xbox fanboys that want to shut down any discussion and throw tantrums.

        • Ted Kaczynski

          I will equally bitch out any morons on a Anti PS4 post.

          • Xtreme Derp

            Who are you again? LOL

    • bruce livingston

      Yeah, but people like you are just as bad as fanboys. The ‘anti-fanboy’ is equally annoying, constantly posting in comments about how you hate fanboys, and raging about what other people are saying on the internet. I think most fanboys are just trolls flaming because it’s fun, but people like you seem to be genuinely bothered by it, kinda sad.

      • Ted Kaczynski

        The Anti-Anti-Fanboys such as yourself are the worst and equally annoying.

        See what I did there? It’s not hard.

    • Xtreme Derp

      Wahhhhh I hate facts! Stop saying facts!

      “The facts don’t matter”, of course, especially since they’re not in your favor. We should let delusional Microsoft fanboys spread lies and tech nonsense all day long and nobody should correct them. LOL in your dreams. If you want a hugbox this isn’t the place for you.

      These articles exist because dumb as bricks, worthless imbecile Microsoft fanboys (like yourself) refuse to admit reality that PS4’s hardware is more powerful and will stay that way forever. You can always tell the whiners are closet Xbox fanboys that want to shut down any discussion and throw tantrums.

      • Ted Kaczynski

        I have both a PS4 AND Xbox One shithead just like I owned a PS3 and and Xbox 360 last generation. Gaming is enough of a passion that it’s also how I choose to make my money. It provides me income and countless hours of enjoyment, I don’t let a console dictate what I want to play I just enjoying gaming for what it is. If I want to play a game on the PS4 I buy a PS4(Which, yet again I did to play Infamous). Maybe you’re the one that’s too butthurt that they can’t afford both systems so you have to lash out at the other side to feel like you made an important decision in your life. A systems power doesn’t reflect how well it will sell or whether the games are good. Just look at the handheld market. The vita is more powerful than the 3DS but is losing the handheld war. Point is why the fuck do you care so much? Just enjoy your fucking PS4 you pathetic piece of shit.

        • Xtreme Derp

          LOL. WAHHH I HATE FACTS!! STOP SAYING FACTS!

          I care about correcting WRONG Microsoft fanboy imbeciles who think it’s as or more powerful than PS4. Got a problem with that?

          PS4 is outselling Xbox almost 2:1 globally, there’s another fact sure to make your fanboy ass sore.

          • Ted Kaczynski

            This fight isn’t even fun anymore, you’re too god damn stupid to make any real arguments and have this be interesting.

            • Xtreme Derp

              LOL. Fanboy whining isn’t an argument, but keep doing it because it’s hilarious.

          • Baz

            You state that as fact – prove that the PS4 is outselling the XB1 almost 2:1 globally with HARD FACTS, not estimates on VGChartz, and I will kneel before you. But you won’t be able to. Because it’s not.

            • Xtreme Derp

              Hard to prove Xbox sales when MS won’t give numbers past December. Which itself is a bad sign.

              Reliable estimates put them at ~7 to ~4 mil give or take 100-200k, which is 1.75:1, or “almost 2:1 globally”.

        • Justin Downer

          Not everyone can afford both and why get both when some people can care less about certain exclusives and only want the best experience on 3rd party games

    • Justin Downer

      its not about that one system is easily more powerful and its not a small amount and its even cheaper this is coming from a person who will never buy a PS4 or an xbox one being a PC gamer.

  • You are flat out wrong

    I shouldn’t laugh.

    But I will.

    Dat SDK you guys!

  • WolfThorn

    The system that can’t get up to level with it’s counterpart should be cheaper, bite the bullet with no kinect MS no one ever really wanted that shit included in the box to bump the price to $500 in the first place.

  • Simon

    The sad part is Cell in PS3 is still way more powerful than the CPU in the PS4. The PS4 could have been, should have been so much better.

    • Xtreme Derp

      Not true for games performance. The SPUs aren’t “fully fledged” cores like the Jaguar cores.

  • brianc6234

    They can already make Xbox One games run at 1080p if they want to. Just dumb the games down compared to the PS4 version. Obviously they’d rather have the games be the same and run at a lower resolution.

    • Justin Downer

      really? Even the wii u has 1080P games you realize the PS4 has the same games as the xbox one and still can run them at higher settings?

  • Gamingsince75

    Same was true last gen but having inferior games didn’t stop PS3 owners from enjoying the TLOU. Also amusing how it only matter now, but didn’t matter last gen. lol.
    Sony fans, the most important aspects of gaming are whatever it is you can hold over other consoles.
    Last gen it was review scores, this gen its sales because Sony has the sales, but is failing at beating even the Wii U in review scores.
    Remember when The Last of Us was the greatest game of all time? Now they admit its crap because its not 1080p 60fps
    Sony fans, the only group that will bash their own games after praising them and not even have the common sense to see it.

    • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

      Never seen a comment filled with such self loathing and butt hurt before, must be side affect of the jealousy, its ok kid you can get a Playstation, you’re allowed to, and it will probably improve your miserable life.

    • Xtreme Derp

      Mentally ill, delusional, worthless, dumb as rocks Microsoft fanboy is angry that PS4 is significantly more powerful, has more developer support, and outselling Xbox almost 2:1 globally.

    • Justin Downer

      don’t you have 18FPS games to be playing on the xbox one such as dead rising?

  • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

    xbone SUCKS!

  • Bman

    Lmao, you peasants are too funny. PCMASTERRACE!

  • Ana Helušić

    PS4 WINSSS

  • shark975

    Stewart forgot to mention the PS4 also has a SLOWER CPU (1.6GHz vs 1.75 ghz on XB1), LESS game usable RAM (4.5 GB vs 5GB on XB1), LESS geometry setup (slower clocked GPU 800 mhz vs 853mhz), LESS peak bandwidth (176 GB/s vs 272 GB/s ESRAM+DDR3).

    Funny he would forget to mention all those things.

    • Xtreme Derp

      Mentally ill, delusional, worthless, dumb as rocks Microsoft fanboy is angry that PS4 is significantly more powerful, has more developer support, and outselling Xbox almost 2:1 globally.

      Factual PS4 Hardware Advantages: +6 CUs, +560 GFlops (44% greater), +16 ROPs, +6 ACEs/CQs, better GPGPU support, better performing CPU, and faster unified memory. PS4 OS may also have less overhead or reserves.

      Both Sony and MS have world class coders that will extract every bit of performance out of their consoles with their drivers/APIs/SDKs. The difference is PS4 simply has more powerful hardware to work with, so it will always stay ahead in graphics performance.

      PS4 will have better performing games for the entire generation as it has more powerful hardware, you can’t overcome a hardware gap with better drivers/SDKs. Any game running on Xbox One can be run with better framerate/resolution/visual effects on PS4.

      Anyone expecting parity or Xbox games running better than PS4 will be sorely disappointed.

      • Baz

        Titanfall runs better on the XB1 than the PS4.

        Your point is?

        • Xtreme Derp

          My point is the guy I replied to is either wrong or grasping at pointless straws.

  • Jessie Dixon

    Sitting on the fence looking. Man looks like I walked into bar errrr forum fight here.

    Only way to close a hardware gap is hardware reconfiguration. Drivers only go so far.

    Peace be all.

    Oh shit ” steps out quick”

  • NeOmega

    But, but the cloud… Silly xboners

    • Dakky

      what about the cloud? it as shown off to perfom better than a single high end pc.

  • Andrew Geczy

    I think 1080P or 720p doesn’t matter. What matters is that the game plays the same and uses the same resources. Now if the console literally has shittier textures… but no they look pretty much identical, and play the same, the frames per second or resolution means little. I’d happily trade that extra resolution for the Kinect and HDMI passthrough which I use to run my computer through my home theatre system. Being able to snap Colbert in the corner of my screen while I race is of value to me. Or switching to watching TV while I wait for a game in the NBA 2k park to start, and then just saying “xbox go to NBA 2k14″ when my friend says the game is starting. All the multitasking that the console is capable of, no wonder it can’t play games at quite the same top standard, it needs more resources focusing on everything else.

  • Madrigal Man

    1080p matters when you’re on a 70″ tv.

  • LookedPath

    The only chance that X1 has to improve its power is that Microsoft will give developers the access to the Azure infrastructure…

    Here is the presentation and it looks really interesting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxHdUDhOMyw

    as if the whole potential of the console would be placed in hardware … These companies still have much to learn from the players, they ignore, launch games for the mass, but actually forget to put new ideas into their games. Alias ​​the majority does not accept changes in the very way to make games that are more focused on charts in the fun itself. Left much time caring about the player to care about what really matters to them, only money
