“The Xbox One is a powerful platform, as of now we do not foresee a major difference in on screen result between the PS4 and the Xbox One. Obviously since we are still working on pushing the game on these new consoles, we are still doing R&D.

“This said, the platforms have some specificities that we are leveraging. For example, we are making use of the touchpad on the DualShock 4."

He actually never answered the question. It's going to be the same with the One and PS4 again. All multiplatforms will look the same on both consoles and it has nothing to do with developers not wanting to make the PS4 version better but Microsoft not allowing it. It's already known that MS won't let any game to be released on their platform if it's far superior on the the other console, they must be the same.

MS trying to hold back greatness. Good for them, because once the first party games boot 3rd parties, visually, into another galaxy, they will have no choice but to step it up or be made to look like greedy fools.

I understand you need to spend money to make money, that's fine, but MS takes this to another level.

Also, on a side note, what is up with the cheering of these practices?
MS fanboys LOVE IT when MS spends billions trying to stifle the competition. Why? You really want Sony out of the hardware game?

That's an honest to goodness question I have for the die-hard fanboys who defend MS no matter what they do. Positive or negative.

MS could have built so many studios with their cash and culled enough talent to give the Sony first parties a run for their money, but instead they destroy or help destroy the rep of 3rd parties by buying them out.

Politics, I guess?

(W) Insomnia 84I agree. Microsoft is making it hard for me to trust anything American made. My car is an import. My tv is an import. Shit my furniture is an import.... The only thing American about my stuff is that it was sold by an American.

I haven't supported the Xbox ever. I knew too much about them to back their gaming sector. If they didn't have such a good desktop operating system I'd switch to another much better one in a heart beat.

As for Ubisoft... I think they should be the first company to rebel against such tyranny.

It would be revolutionary. But of course no one has any courage in this industry. Except for the guy that said 8GB of ram or you are dead in the water."

If these conditions are not met, Microsoft reserves the right to not allow the content to be released on Xbox 360."

seems more like content to me. and also put in place to combat what happened in the ps2/xbox era. where games like gta where timed exclusive to sony, and really helped the ps2 alot.

where on the original xbox, which had a much bigger power difference with the ps2, than the ps3/360, the games on the xbox were in a different league.

I don't see why people are disagreeing, that's MS policy for third party devs

That extra 2GB of RAM Sony has....third party devs won't even touch it and it's kind of sad.

GTA6, ES6, Fallout 4, FFXV, Kingdom Hearts 3 etc

No one will hardly use it except for first party developers which is sad because devs complain about wanting more RAM, they finally have more with the PS4 and they won't use it

@Insomnia
The logical answer why Ubi would release equal versions of their game on both platforms is because they want to cater to both. Making a superior version on another console would surely hurt their sales. A good businessman knows how to satisfy 2 different customers.
starchild  +   450d ago
@Insomnia-84

You Playstation guys always say that, but it doesn't hold water.

First of all, lots of games do in fact look better on the PS3, so how are those games exempt from this supposed policy?

Second, most multi plats show clear differences and optimizations specific to each console. To those with technical knowledge this is clear evidence that developers are in fact working to best take advantage of each console's strengths.

You guys want to believe this so bad because you just can't accept that the PS3 and Xbox 360 are very close in power or that the 360 does indeed have advantages in some ways. Multiplatform games often looked better on the 360 because it has a more powerful gpu and unified memory architecture, and that it was easier to develop for, not because Microsoft pays developers to make them that way, or any other bullsh!t conspiracy theory.

PS4 is plainly more powerful than Xbox One and we WILL see this reflected in multiplatform games. Mark my words.

No third party developer will praise one console over the other. These are cross gen games, in a year or two I'm confident there will be a noticeable difference between the two consoles.
starchild  +   450d ago
Also, your link doesn't say anything about about MS requiring devs to make PS3 games inferior or 360 games look at least as good. It wasn't about visuals or performance at all.

All the policy refers to is the fact games can't, for example, launch on July 12th on PS3 and July 29th on the 360. Furthermore, they said they reserve the "right" to not allow such games on their console, but that doesn't mean that they will exercise that right. After all, we saw plenty of games with exclusive content on the PS3.

We all know what the genesis of this since it was revealed what MS demanded of Rockstar in exchange for the $50 million bribe to get GTA4 on the 360.
The precedent is THERE for MS dirty tactics, the question in my mind is : I would have legally ruined MS for anti-competitive practices, violation of the Rico statute(with a good lawyer you could make this fly) and whatever else I could throw at them. Sony really is the nerdy kid who won't stoop to such levels I guess.

I love microsoft- they are only here to protect their consumers- this way all that power on ps4 will never come to fruition on multiplats.

So "A 50% increase in raw shader performance, 2x the fillrate and 8x the compute queue granularity, plus a faster and simpler ram configuration" it all doesnt even matter because multiplats will look the SAME.

MUHAHAHAHAHAHHA

Man am i evil or what? microsoft protects their gamers and screwed sony gamers over. Looks like all that power will only ever show in sony first party exclusives. Well atleast msoft has cloud for first party exclusives- should defenetly make up for something lol.

Similar to this gen, we probably won't see EXTREME graphical differences between the two consoles for third party games. Where the consoles will shine will definitely be exclusives where they have only one platform to focus on.

The edge will almost guaranteed be for the PS4 just based on the specs we've seen so far.

That said - it's still a large unknown how the XBOne cloud will play a role in the development of games and the impact it will have on graphics. If the cloud can take some of the load off of the on-system processing, there might be room to match the output the PS4 has.

Time will tell. I'll get both systems eventually, but the PS4 has my money this fall based on customer loyalty alone. The only thing MS has me hooked on is Halo and Forza - neither of which are worth spending $500 + games to play. Get some of those exclusives out (Quantum Break looks like a decent game, along with Sunset Overdrive) and make it worth the purchase. The fact it doesn't launch with a Halo title will probably cause the sales to stagger off the bat.

Cloud computing cannot make fidelity better based on the current infrastructure for internet service in the US. There is far too much lag, no amount of servers MS or Sony puts up is going to change that. The cloud will be used for small background things that lag would not impede. People thinking the graphics will be somehow better are dreaming, it's just a fact that with current technology improving fidelity will not work to the extent people believe it will. It is too variable and too many things come into play depending on the time of day and how many people are using their ISP at any given time. Besides if you look at the wording MS used they said in the future the cloud will enable improvements. They never specified when this will be and would you honestly pick a system that will not have a feature for a few years or ever, over one that can best it now? The way MS worded it they are not lying, but I'm not paying more for an ambiguous promise.

Rumors are going around that Sony's PS4 tool set is more mature, robust than Microsoft's Xbox One's. It could be the difference in time spent developing these systems.
PS4 = since around 2007 or 2008
Xbox One = Late 2010

That said, up there, If this holds true, then I would expect a noticeable difference in fidelity out the gate.

I guess it's not even a rumor:

JsonHenry  +   450d ago
Based on the specs I've seen posted and what I know from being a PC gamer/rig builder for almost 2 decades the PS4 has an edge for sure. The faster RAM and 4 extra GCN cores on the GPU should make a small (but noticeable!!!) difference if the game devs were to push both games to their max. If you look at the in game screenshots from the games announced the reason they look so good isn't really the poly count though. It is the fact they have so many gigs of RAM and the consoles will FINALLY be able to run high resolution textures. That alone makes such a huge difference in visual fidelity. You could take older games and throw on high rez textures and it would look just as good as some of the gameplay vids we have seen so far.

Gamingisfornerds  +   450d ago
I think you won't see much differences between the two consoles in multi-platform games.

3rd party devs like Ubisoft have built their engine around all next-gen systems. If the PS4 really is all that more powerful, you won't see it in 3rd party games. Perhaps some better performance and things like AA. Which is nice in itself, but it won't make for a totally different experience.

1st party devs that build their next-gen engine around the PS4 (and Xbone to lesser extent) will make the most of the systems. Even though their architecture is similar, they're not quite the same and those subtle differences will be enough to hold back multiplats as they'll have a more generic approach in terms of development.

Also, -especially- at the beginning of next-gen you'll see a lot of games looking subpar due to 'lazy code' where devs can get a decent looking game relatively easy with just 'raw power' without having to work hard on any real optimization.

So, I think the differences between the Xbone and PS4 will be similar to current gen, but with PS4 exclusives taking it just a step further than it has been this gen.

Why would a multi plat developer spend much time to make a game look better on one platform? They don't care which platform you buy the game for
ABizzel1  +   450d ago
How are they "spend much time". These consoles are again practically 90% gaming PC's, and as with any gaming PC the game scales to the specs. you want. I seriously doubt any developer who are also releasing their games on PC, are doing any kind of programming to take advantage of the console hardware when they can simply port the PC version over.

Most of the Pc developers who are porting their games over to PS4 didn't get dev kits until after the PS4 reveal, and their games were up and running (not 100% mind you) at E3 less than 4 months later, and they expect them to be complete by launch probably November (9 months from the PS4 reveal).

That being said current PC games scale to the hardware, and by all means with the PS4 being more powerful the games should scale to represent that. Now it's not going to be a night and day difference, however, PS4 versions of games should have better framerates through the entire game, or a higher resolution (PS4 1080p vs. X1 720p/900p). And that's through basic hardware scaling / game options that EVERY PC is capable of.

They might not do it in the beginning since there's not competition but after the PS4 exclusives start releasing they must to in order to compete for sales on that platform (PS4), there are som publishers and devs that always want to deliver the best game possibles and those will start it and others will follow as no one want to deliver a multiplatform that is inferior to other multiplatform games on the same console...it's just a matter of time.

And if the pre-orders' tendency turns to be true, the PS4 will have a bigger installbase than X1...so why they wouldn't deliver a better experience on the platform that will make them more profit?

On the X1 people would buy it anyway as they don't have another option, that talk about dozens of exclusives we know is just BS, within 2 years MSFT will be back to what they love :XBLG money and multiplatform games.

In my opinion the pros outweigh the cons.

And here is a demonstration of our superiority: http://www.youtube.com/watc...

And I am getting and playing a PS4 but the PC is still superior.

* A console game will never be able to match a computer for precision and movement when it comes to first-person shooters. A mouse and keyboard always trump a game console's joypad.
* The PC version of a game will generally look better than the same game on a console. It's a fact. Take a console version and PC versions of the same game and in some cases the graphical differences will be as stark as night and day. A high-end gaming computer has a graphics card with a powerful chipset that gives crisper and more detailed graphics and higher screen resolutions. Some games, such as recently released Batman Arkham Asylum, make the most of a special physics chipset from nVidia that makes cloth and smoke act more realistically.
* A lot of online games for a PC are free for players to play. There are a lot of PC games for which you have to pay a monthly subscription fee, such as World of Warcraft, but for the most part, a huge number of PC games are free to play.
* A lot of PC games have their own level-making software that let users make their own levels or modifications and share them with a game's online community. Very few console games give gamers that much freedom.

"The PC version of a game will generally look better than the same game on a console. It's a fact. Take a console version and PC versions of the same game and in some cases the graphical differences will be as stark as night and day"

yeah generally pc games have more detail than console versions.but can you give me a game in which the diff is actually stark as night and day?

about the console vs pc graphics.
i think this pattern usually follows:

console year 0-2 very high to ultra
console year 2-3 high to very high
console year 3-5 medium
after that low-mid

this pattern was for most games,of coarse crysis is not one of those games.

but the point to notice is the value that one gets while purchasing their gaming platform.

can you show me a game as good looking as the last of us running on a 2006/7 pc(even a 1000$ one)?

not everyone likes spending 500$ each 2 years.

back in 2009 no title on pc even touched the graphical fidelity of uncharted 2.

you may say crysis 1 but even that game without mods didnt touch uncharted 2.

It really isnt 50% more powerful like you say it is, there are lots of factors that can boost the power of the xbox one like using the sram with ddr3, and maybe the "potential" power of the cloud. so the biggest difference might be 10% or less, I dont really know but neither does anybody on this site

50% advantage is just related to the GPU
RAM (type & available amount for games) isn't even a part of the +50% ...

FragMnTagM  +   450d ago
First off the GPU's have about a 40% difference, not 50. Even then it is pretty negligible.

I upgraded my graphics card from a 560ti, which is the equivalent of the 7790 in the One, to a 660ti which is on par with the 7870 of the PS4, and the jump is negligible at best.

I manage to get a few more FPS, and can move a few more sliders in TOP END PC games. There is still nothing on the market that the 560ti cannot handle. It can run Crysis 3 on mid to low settings and that game takes a lot to run. My 660ti runs Crysis 3 on mid to high settings with some FPS dumps in certain areas.

The point I am trying to make is that people on this site are making it seem as if though the PS4 is absolutely going to destroy the XBOX One in graphics, when in reality, it will look slightly better on certain games (first party.)

I am getting a PS4 first by the way, so don't slam me for being a fanboy. I like to play games regardless of the system they are on.

I am just trying to keep conversations about the games instead of who's hardware is ever so slightly "better."

So true, "upgrading" a 7770 to 7850 on pc (a 1.2 tflops gpu to a 1.8 tflops gpu) you get slightly better frame rate, drawing distance and AA, but that's all, unless you look at them side by side it's hard to even tell a difference
Hercules189  +   450d ago

Kojima has stated there isn't a significant difference in power. Now Watch Dogs creators say the same. None of the launch titles look 50% better than X1 launch titles. But, but but the experts on N4G keep holding out for some miracle gaming revolution with the PS4. All of these first party developers had a hand making the PS4 what it is so wouldn't they already be showing that difference in power?

The PS4 is so easy to develop for plus the designers had a hand picking every nuance of a system which should make them so much more familiar with it. With that knowledge, the games should be looking that much better right now. Not years later. 50% more power as everyone says, I want to see it now. I bet if I got a PC 50% more powerful I'd be able to see the difference.

The difference in fidelity will be even smaller than it was this gen.

Devs are lazy. Kojima is getting paid. We'll see in 2014. I don't have to know a thing about the insides. If someone tells me a system is 50% more powerful but not a single game to show for it, and developers are saying it isn't a big difference I guess I'll run with that.
S2Killinit  +   450d ago
Are you using this to say that the PS4 isn't more powerful? Thats like saying PC isn't more powerful than consoles because the games look almost the same. Once you see the difference in Sony's 1st party developers that aren't bogged down by having to make the games work on all platforms, then you will see where that extra power goes.
By the way I don't think the whole system is 50% more powerfu. I think the CPU is 50% better, and the RAM is better but that isn't the same thing. The PS4 is a more powerful system, but not by 50%. That would be ridiculous.

what you are saying is quite true, but the real test will be what happens when each system is coded to metal, and we could see the real test of pushing each hardware platform. the real right upfront area where the PS4 is over 50% more powerful than the xboxone is over all system bandwidth through system I/O this is quite Glaring.

Xboxone has a main system bandwidth of = 68GB/sec.

please note:

" 8 GB of DDR3 RAM with a memory bandwidth of 68.3 GB/s" that is to/from main system ram!

while the PS4's main system Bandwidth of = 176GB/sec to and from system ram from CPU or GPU!

http://www.anandtech.com/sh...

that sheer Bandwidth Gap between cpu to main system ram just cannot be ignored.

yes the xboxone has 32 MB of eSRAM with 102 GB/sec bandwidth.

the problem is its not a unified over all system Bandwidth through I/O like the PS4 has.

I agree with everything you say, up until the 50% more power making PC noticable.

The 7790(One) and the 7870(PS4) are not a huge difference in graphics power. In fact it is around 40%, not 50% like everyone has been claiming.

Went from a 560ti(equivalent of 7790) to 660ti(equivalent of 7870) and no drastic changes in the way games look. Sure I could bump up a few things and get a few more FPS, but it is not as drastic as some would like to think here.
theWB27  +   450d ago
To the both of you-
I'm sure you can look up quite a few articles on here and see people like to throw around as many numbers as possible. Especially the teraflops number..1.8 to 1.2 I think. Oh!!! It's 50% better. It's the ram. It's this, it's that. 50% is their number for power.

So when I say a PC 50% more powerful, that's what the n4g experts like to throw around.

lol you wish. do your self a favor and research gddr5 and gddr3, you will see then. likehe said R&D. that means that both of these systems can do way more than what we will see at launch. with gddr5 graphics can be better and has less bottle necks. will you see this right away hell no. no matter how much a team works on a game. but in two to five years yep you will see that. Also cloud computing can't help graphics so xbox one and gaikai are not going to improve that. Streaming doesnt offer what hard disk does. giv eit time jsut like with ps3 yeah uncharted came out in I think the first two years. go look at that game and then look at 2 and 3 and you will see the difference.
FragMnTagM  +   450d ago
People that don't know about hardware shouldn't talk about it until they know something about it, i.e. do some research.

The PS4 has no DDR3, only GDDR5, whereas the One will have GPU Ram (GDDR5) an undisclosed amount, until it gets opened up probably, plus the 5gb of DDR3. That above is not FACT! I am speculating, but if it is set up like a PC, the GPU will have it's own GDDR5 RAM. Even if it is only 1gb, it will be great as the only game I have played that actually used more than 1gb of GDDR5 was GTAIV.

For instance, my PC has 16gb of DDR3 and my GPU (660ti) has 3gb of GDDR5 RAM. This completely annihilates both the next gen consoles and the GPU went on market nearly a year ago. The consoles are already outpaced before the gen has even started.

The consoles will roughly be on par.

I am just sick of people making the PS4 out to be some super elite piece of hardware, when in reality they will roughly be the same.

This still does not change the fact that I am going to wait on both consoles for at least a few months before I get either of them. I will be picking the PS4 up first, and then the One.

Before I grab either of those though, I am going to grab another 660ti and beef up my computer. Star Citizen looks FUGGGGGGIN amazing. Nothing that either console could ever dream of doing cloud or no cloud.

No fanboy here. I like facts and games. I will play a game on any system if said game is fun. Life is to short to hole yourself up to one gaming platform.

I may be wrong, but it is an educated guess seeing as how I have went to college for this stuff, and owned my own business at one time fixing and building custom systems for businesses and home gaming/computing/home theater setups.

developers aren't saying there is not difference. You need to read between the lines, no developer in their right mind will want to come out and antagonize half their customers. You need to accept reality, I honestly don't understand how sometimes people will ignore facts in favor of subjective information. Even the very fact that microsoft did not directly announce their specs should tell you something. Although, there is still one argument to be made and that is that maybe Microsoft will try to up their console's performance before release. Although I find that hard to believe at this point because that would mean pushing back their release date beyond Christmas and they just can't afford to do that I think.
PS: This is not a fanboy rant, but please for the sake of sanity, you need to accept things that are true, PS4 IS more Powerful. Get over that.

ON TOPIC: If i were from any big company that want to sell a game in new consoles that are not yet in teh market, and i have no idea how big their install base its going to be, i think it wouldnt be a good idea to say "yes ps4 version will be better, buy that one".
1st- if u do that, u are telling x-bone users to not buy the product, why to buy an inferior product.
2nd- doing that u will alienate a bussines partner #MS#
3rd: if u say that u need to a great looking game on xbox and even a better looking game on ps4 #thing that would make work even harder.

The power difference is minimal like Kojima and Ubisoft had already stated. People buying into this BS from the likes of Jonathan low, who hold a grudge against MS, by saying some third party games can run at 60fps on PS4 and only 30fps on Xbox1. LOL, if Killzone and Drive Club, both are first party, can't even manged that on supposed 50% more powerful hardware, then we already knew the answer to that.

The battle is not so much in graphics but on function in this generation. The fact is the one has a Kinect 2.0 in every Sku means some third party games will take advantage of that and make use of it in ways that will separate it from from the PS4 version.

What version from E3 2012 are you speaking of? I didn't know Sony showed footage of PS4 games until February of this year??? Can you respond and elaborate on that?

Also, I wouldn't take some random poster on IGN's board as credible or in the know.

I wouldn't believe anything that is being said from random posters like that because they have no prior credibility. Someone like Cboat at Neogaf is someone I would believe simply because he has proven to be right so many times already.

There is no point arguing about this subject because it could not be settled once and for all until the games are actually released and compared.

If I would have to make a friendly bet, my bet would go to the PS4 as having the better version simply because of what the known specs for both systems are currently at. There is no way I can prove this, nor can anyone else refute it, but that is my bet based on available information from both MS and Sony engineers through interviews and corroborated through with the leaks for both systems.

I strongly agree that if this was true, MS would have let it known loud and clear, especially at a venue like E3 that was so hyped worldwide because of the two next gen system unveil.

On top of that, if they knew the PS4 specs because of the PS4 reveal in February, they would have known they got the better hardware leading up to their reveal of the Xbox One and used that as one of their major marketing push, but they didn't.

MS knows that it would have been a huge thing that would justify why their console would be $100 more as well. So for them to not let this be known on their initial reveal of the Xbox One and E3 press conference, I highly doubt it is true because of that.

"MS knows that it would have been a huge thing that would justify why their console would be $100 more as well. So for them to not let this be known on their initial reveal of the Xbox One and E3 press conference, I highly doubt it is true because of that."

Both Sony and Microsoft have not put out all the spec's just yet , but by each other's display of spec's Sony has been more upfront with their spec's than Microsoft has.

they @ MICROSOFT @ Sony did not even give out the SOC'S freq/ ON THE cpu, OR even than it was only Microsoft waited to tell the specs on the RAM UNTIL AFTER THE 21'ST REVEL @ THE ROUND TABLE WITH THE ENGINEER'S. They just put "8GB OF RAM" on stage show of the 21st WHILE MARK CERNY PROUDLY STATED that the 8GB of the ram was GDDR5! Back in Feb.

you d@mn right if Microsoft's system has over all better spec's they would have out right stated such.

you know this person he would have been stating as such real quick example:

CONCLUSION
When you break down the numbers, Xbox 360 has provably more performance than PS3. Keep in mind that Sony has a track record of over promising and under delivering on technical performance. The truth is that both systems pack a lot of power for high definition games and entertainment.

If MS put more time and money in to the hardware instead of ridiculous amounts of money on timed exclusive dlc, advertising, and lord knows what or who else to hype their product they wouldn't be holding everyone back.. The American way of buisness is retarded now.. Spend $1000 to save $2... MS should stop trying to manipulate people and focus on making a solid product.. They should take notes from Sony. If you build it right, they will come

So everyone who praises the X1 is paid? Can you show one PS4 exclusive that looks better than every X1 title?

Forza 5 was running on X1 hardware. The most graphically intense games have already been proven to be running on X1 But you can keep that argument if it makes you feel better.

I don't defend the X1 so much as I like to temper the fanboyism regarding the PS4. As I said before, we shouldn't have to wait and see since the 1st party developers worked so closely in developing the PS4 themselves. It's a console made for developers, its so easy. Results should already be shown.

I could ask you the same thing about X1, oh wait, MS wasnt running their demo's at E3 with the actual X1 console.. hmm. Don't put your faith in screenshots, like all xbots say these days, just wait and see

@groo, have you seen the videos of the public playing ryse and forza and KI being played on actual xbox ones. Only game on pc was the lococycle game, which looks like a 360 game,and that was because they didnt have enough time to get it over to the one.

@Groo Just to let you know due to Sony's past financial problems they didn't have a lot of money to invest in research and development like they did for the ps3 . They had to take short cuts.
Just to inform you MS invested 3 bil. dollars in r&d with AMD on xbox one.

$3B on inferior hardware. Guess that worked out ok in the end.
FrigidDARKNESS  +   450d ago
Lol how. If you are going by specs on paper don't mean a damn thing its the engineering and components inside that counts that counts.
Why o why  +   450d ago
Yet they chose slower cheaper memory in a box the size of a denon amp that still needs a power brick.....retro or what.....too many people in denial.

Time will tell which is the best grapically and if its not the multiplats demonstrating it, it will definitely be the 1st/2nd party exclusives...... just like this gen... just let it go already
FlunkinMonkey  +   450d ago
Right on brother.. I'm enjoying exclusives like The Last of Us right now, where is the support for exclusives on the 360 gone? vanished..

Complete idiots here who don't understand PR, and that neither company would discredit respective platforms.. Get a grip!

The hardware is superior on PS4, i don't know how you guys are trying to avoid this factor, it was the other way around you'd be jumping off the walls.
moparful99  +   450d ago
@Frigid Yes that's why there have been numerous reports of Microsoft having to underclock the gpu on the XBONE.
ded1020  +   450d ago
I think what we need first is for one console to grossly outsell the other, before we can see games optimised for each. If PS4 took off way ahead of everybody else, MS would have to dig deep into their cloud and pull out some magic. Maybe find someway to make slow internet work afterall? (im no engineer, obviously). Kinda like 6th gen.
