I know it's whats inside the box that matters, but jeeze, it's boring looking.

Campy da Camper1767d ago

For me its what's PLAYING inside the box. I could care less about social media or apps or yelling at it to turn on. I want awesome, suck me in to the world GAMES.

raytraceme1767d ago

Well we don't even know what's "inside the box" they vaguely gave specs which just tells me that the ps4 is more powerful. Comparing the 2 press conferences Cerney owned it while the xbox show looked half... and had a bunch of corp. execs who couldn't care less about gaming.

theBAWSE1767d ago

Well it's confirmed ddr3 ram compared to sonys gddr5

ProjectVulcan1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

8GB DDR3, 12 CU, 768 thread GPU in Xbox one. He said in this broadcast quite clearly, 768 GPU ops per cycle (meaning simultaneous threads I am sure). He also mentioned 6 ops per cycle for the CPU, in context he appears to mean the machine has 6 cores for developers of the 8.

PS4 has 50 percent more raw GPU performance, and A LOT more system wide unified memory bandwidth.

All those specs you saw rumoured about PS4 being quite a lot faster than Xbox one are true.

PS4 is by far the fastest next generation console. Its not even close.

HammadTheBeast1767d ago

Xbox One is running 3 OS's.

Say goodbye to power.

SolidStoner1767d ago

X box one? are we back in time or something? did I miss something?? I get it, microsoft is trying to mess with out heads!!! its some kind of a trick, dont know what exactly... but time will show..

nice design for the box :) it seems they rushed it :)

awi59511767d ago


Well DDr 5 didnt help AMD cards beat nividia's in performance last graphics card gen. Nivida is ddr 5 now but it didnt give amd that much of a advantage.

Psn8001767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

Been on the official Xbox website and I have had a huge shock these are the hardcore fans saying they are going to defect to Ps4 can't blame them though be ause there hardcore gamers after all and want a games console not a Kinect app box .
Ms have tried to take on too many competitors with this contraption and it's backfired you can't take on Apple with a console or with even W8 on a PC , a tablet for a tablet and games console to a games console not a gaming console with Apple in mind hence Kinect and can't take on Samsung either with a gaming console hence Skype what a joke .

Sony3601767d ago

You mean you couldn't* care less.

Gildarts1767d ago

The PS4 is not that much more powerful. DDR5 is not that big of a deal as it seems. Microsoft made the architecture so that the DDR3 can run almost as fast as a DDR5.

Braid1766d ago

It's funny how they intentionally didn't talk about the type of the RAM and the specs of the graphics processing unit. Their trying to avoid the subject confirms us that the Xbox One has an inferior hardware.

the first xbox was more exciting looking then this -one- and you are kidding yourself if you think otherwise. Hideous.

pkb791767d ago

My first thought was are they putting their game on VHS.

duli141767d ago

Well MS has always been about software. They build shitty hardware.I mean How low quality did a launch 360 feel when compared to the phat ps3? Sony always designs some slick hardware. If you look at the xperia z phone and tablet you can tell SONY are on their A game now.

Urusernamesucks1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

Wouldn't look so hideous if youd take off your goggles.

OT; the console looks simple and smooth, not bad not pretty. The name is shit however.
They did the right thing with the cotroller"if it aint broken dont fix it" except the d_pad wich was broken and fixed. And cant belive they brought back those f***ng AA batteries back.

negative1767d ago

I love the PS3 fanboys saying the Xbox looks boring. It's a sleek component that will gel into anyone's home theater system.

And you don't get the "Xbox One" name?? PS3 Fanboys.... blind sheep.

dantesparda1767d ago

^^^ says the blind ms fanboy sheep

KarrBOMB1767d ago

^^^For Negatives comment...

I prefer the 360 to the PS3, but I have both. The Xbox one, is just plain ugly as sin. That and the BS always on, not able to just swap and trade games with friends... I'm absolutely done, I will only get the PS4 now. So you can take the Sony fanboys comment and shove it, because the 360 is my preferred gaming console. But I'm smart enough to know when to jump ship.

awi59511767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )


Dont give me that crap about xbox hardware is crap sonys crap was way worse. Sony screwed up 2 generations in a row. The PS one was garbage it broke all the time. The disk drive would stop working, The Cd lenses would mess up, people had to turn their consoles upside down to make them play.

Also the Ps one disks were so cheap and flimsy they would break when you tried to pull them out of there cases. The first year ps2 were all crap they all broke and walmart stopped taking them back because they got in so many broken ones. Microsoft has to screw up alot more to catch up to sony. Oh and dont forget the PS2 disk read error scandal which they got sued for and lost.

Atleast Microsoft paid up to fix my xbox sony charged me 100 bucks each time i had to fix my console. And that doesnt even count the ones i had to return to walmart by buying a new console switching out the systems and returning it for my money back since walmart refused to take back anymore broken PS2's

Jeff2571767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

I agree. The original and even the 360 look better. XBOX One looks as bad as the PSX did in 2003.

Gildarts1767d ago

Well let's see if the PS4 looks any better.
Not that you would recognize. You'd still say it's sexy even if it looked like crap.

The Xbox one is not a looker but it's definitely not ugly either.

SonyWarrior1767d ago

hmmm the third xbox called xbox one..... sounds like a good idea to me...

VonBraunschweigg1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

Weird name indead, as if the previous 2 machines didn't matter, we're starting all over. Entertainment my man, aand some gaming. All needly wrapped in a monthly fee for your convenience while we're watching, no worries.

Show some guns at E3. First party guns, violence, murder, with buttons.

Syntax-Error1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

The ONE isn't because they are forgetting the first 2. Only a short sighted fool would believe that. The same as calling it the 360, would you say "where is the other 359?" Sop being a douche bag. Furthermore, the first console was called XBOX. It was called XBOX 1 by people defining the order it was made and not by MS themselves. Grow up and stop behaving like a 12 year old. ONE could mean ALL IN ONE for all we know. Wait until the interviews start coming out. This was just a reveal and the Q&A hasn't come out yet.

@ TEA-BAG242

Why don't you sit down in a corner somewhere. This was a console revealing NOT E3. This wasn't about GAMES!!! Why would they give a presentation about games 2 weeks before E3? Are you that dumb?

shysun1767d ago

@Syntax-Error.... So what do i call the Xboxone...1..the first Xbox now? :(

pimp79971767d ago

That's what people say to someone who's ugly to make them feel better.

showtimefolks1767d ago

After the conference I am still undecided, there is nothing that interest me one okay or anther to buy any next gen system.

Right now if I have to buy one its ps4 but even that was very under whelmening in my opinion.

I think after E3 we will have a much more clear vision on what the systems will offer games wise. Sony did a good job showing ps4, ms did a ok job showing Xbox one which is a bad name IMO.

Both could have done a much better job, but I also understand that these were just events to announce syste,s so most of the gaming stuff will be at E3

DarkHeroZX1767d ago

MS built a coffin to bury themselves with.

1upgamer991767d ago

Oh well, It looks like its even bigger than the 1st Xbox. For gosh sake! Whoever up there said it looks "Sleek" you have to be kidding me?

DOMination-1767d ago

I think the idea is that it sits as a component in your hifi tower. In which case it will actually look good but im no way convinced about it as an under the tv box

opinska1767d ago

Lol yes, and after that BS conference I sure as hell will never buy that sh$tty box. I like my 360, but that new sh$t box won't touch my TV. I will buy PS4 for sure this time around. M$ can go to hell!

tee_bag2421767d ago

All i saw say a system with TV apps. Where are the games!!!!?

GT671767d ago

anyone notice how SONY and MS product (console) is SQUARE this time around coincident maybe?? dont think so. how could that be possible unless behind closed business doors they sharing ideals.

wastedcells1767d ago

3 separate OS's = one big red ring

travelguy2k1766d ago

I prefer this design. It can be stacked with all my other gear, provided it does not run too hot.

I hope Sony goes the same route as that is my preferred system at this time. I think most of the benefit of the Xone will be realized in the USA. As i'm not in the USA the PS3 looks to cater to my needs more (at this time).

Can't wait! Specs were what was leaked as expected. This system is gonna change the game for sure!!!!!!

starchild1767d ago

I'm not a Sony fanboy, Im more of a general game fan that gamed a lot on PC this generation. But I have to say, Sony did almost everything right and Microsoft have done almost everything wrong.

JP13691767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

And by "what was expected", you mean substantially weaker than PS4 (source: the architecture panel), right? How is that going to change the game? The features are interesting, but that's about it.

oof461767d ago

I'm a 360 owner and I don't agree with you...yet.

andibandit1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

I know this is gonna be hard to grasp, but the Xbox1 will get more powerful the older it gets.
The Xbox1 is all about the Cloud, I didn't get it at first, but im beginning to understand now.

SonyPS41767d ago

Well if it is all in the cloud, then they are better off releasing a $49.99 thin client instead of a 400-600 dollar big box. That way they can also make our 360s compatible with Xbox One games.

JP13691767d ago

PS4 could do the same, but it probably won't turn into anything significant until the average bandwidth in all territories increases. Devs don't want to alienate people without fast enough connections.

Morpheuzpr1767d ago


Why do you think they need a attachment for voice commands? That is done by software not hardware, all you need is a mic and guess what the DS4 has a mic.

Voice command could be done by the ps3, vita, 3ds, ect, but it's not practical, its just like kinnect once the novelty wares off you end up using a controller.

JackBNimble1767d ago

Well sony does have this thing called the ps eye, it also has a mic built in it. My kids use the ps eye when gaming online instead of a headset.

If I am not mistaken, the ps4 will have the new ps eye cam/mic bundled with it. Sony has all the means necessary to use voice commands if they choose too.

kingmushroom1767d ago

hey do you think you can layout a comparison or give me a link i want to see to compare.

Gildarts1767d ago

They are very similar only real difference is the RAM

e-p-ayeaH1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

looks very simplistic which is good if your expectations were low im disapointed on the size its way too big and the controler design is pretty crappy i prefer the classic 360 design way more.

BrianC62341767d ago

I guess Microsoft didn't want another RROD disaster. Do they have six fans inside that box?
