I recommend you to read these article :

You will be suprised. I am...

I_am_Batman1665d ago

What exactly surprised you about that article?

stuna11665d ago

Very interesting read! It also pretty much conferms an always on and constant connection! My thoughts are Microsoft are trying to become a Jack of all trades, be will ultimately become a master of none! I just can't see their vision becoming very viable in such a short period of time.

Just the fact that the Xbox 1 has 3 operating systems makes me think that it will totally hog up the full bandwidth in a normal US home, thereby making anyother wifi device in your home unusable.

Their focus on the living room has the potential to actually alienate other family member if you ask me! How would you go about determining who has the control? What by drawing straws!?

I really think that it's good to be able to pick up a remote to change a channel every so often, and not have it religated to a single option.

50% less raw power than PS4 GPU!!!

imt5581665d ago


I didn't expect that the PS4 GPU has 50% more power than X1 GPU.

Ghost_of_Tsushima1665d ago


In reference to your link I found this interesting piece.

"Xbox One reveal was the manner in which Microsoft's engineers - and Turn 10's Dan Greenawalt - referred to both "transistors in the box", and "transistors in the cloud", the inference being that Xbox One could evolve by offloading mathematical computations from the local hardware to the ginormous servers Microsoft is prepping for the new system's launch. There was talk of new worlds being generated in the cloud, and less latency-specific systems like physics and AI being processed outside of the console. It's true that this is an exciting prospect in terms of creating massively multiplayer open worlds where "next-gen" dedicated servers will be required to keep track of everything that's going on and feed that out to the gamers."

imt5581665d ago

Sony has Gaikai instead.

darthv721665d ago

that was a pretty good read. Eurogamer did a good job of weighing pros and cons from the information provided.

@kratos...this is something interesting related to cloud processing as well:

Its a few years old but the time between then and now can lead to significant improvements in the implementation.

SilentNegotiator1664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )


Actually, Ps4 has 50% more raw power; not One has 50% less.

"PlayStation 4's 18 CU graphics core has 50 per cent more raw power than the GPU in the new Microsoft console"

Meaning One has ~2/3 the raw power. If One has 2 units of power and Ps4 has 50% more, then PS4 has 3 units of power.

Arai1664d ago

It's not surprising, VGLeaks provided info on both next-gen systems some months ago but N4G blocked the submissions.

Because they were not reliable, trustworthy and whats not.
Though they were spot on and had official documents.
With that said every rumor/leaks proved to be true.

PS4's GPU is 50% stronger than XBone, how that will play out in terms of games is another question though.

darthawesome901664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )

Constant Internet connection, Facial recognition, always on CAMERA and MIC. HELL NO. I refuse to have a camera and mic that is always on and watching/listening to me. Would just love to bring in a GF/wife into the bedroom with this camera pointed right at my bed (sarcasm).
There isn't a corporation out there that doesn't sell out privacy for cash. I also recall there being an article a while back about the camera tracking gamers emotions so Developers can see how gamers react.

Sorry maybe I like my privacy too much. Once some girls had the computer nerds hack into my computer to learn more about me. They saw every youtube video I watched, everything I typed, email, etc. Needless to say I was furious when I found out.

Heck less than an hour ago I was upset that google kept displaying my real name on youtube with a Google+ account. No way to add a username. Point is that until Microsoft makes the camera and mic optional it's PS4 for me.

AutoCad1664d ago

good article.
im still getting a xbox idc lol .

starchild1664d ago

I knew much of that after I watched the conference. The fact that they said it was using ESRAM told me right away that it was using DDR3, because they wouldn't be using ESRAM if they weren't using DDR3.

Anyway, Sony should be commended for building a powerful and efficient console. It's going to rule the roost for years to come. I can't wait to get mine.

Zhipp1664d ago

That video was hilarious, but it's the Onion, so I hope you know it's fake.

darthawesome901664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )


I pretty much assumed the video was a fake but it's so funny because it's so true for so many companies out there. Tracking us and selling our info.

Wait wait wait...... Xbox One won't support component cables? Not everyone has an HDTV( I know it's 2013 ) but still.

One4U1665d ago

looks like they made it for the US

wampdog291665d ago

@One4U: Would people stop saying this. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Microsoft is an American company and the whole Live TV/cable box thing is more of an American thing, but the opposite could be said abotu this whole online-based idea as well. The U.S. is kinda low on the totem pole when looking at internet speeds and reliability. Maybe Microsoft made this for Asia???

M-M1665d ago

I know I just saw that, and there is no way to convert HDMI to analog without a converter box. Bad move by Microsoft, not everyone has an HDTV(I know, but some people don't have money like that).

thehitman1665d ago

@ coolguy you can get an HDTV for prob 100 bucks which is like 4-5x less than a xbox would cost. Think thats kind of irrelevant among the onslaught of MS problems have with their next Xbox.

Zhipp1664d ago

I somehow doubt that anyone with enough money to buy an XBOne/PS4 wouldn't have already bought an HDTV, or at least a monitor with HDMI support, years ago.

Can't wait to visit friends with xbox "xbox shemale porn "

NextGen24Gamer1664d ago

The DDR3 plus small fast eSRAM for the Xbox One can get to the GDDR5s peak performance from the PS4. The GDDR5 will be better in general for the GPU no doubt, but much will be offset by the eSRAM. The questoin is how much will GDDRs high latency hurt the CPU in the PS4?

The cpu is running on low frequency ~ 1.6 GHz which is half the frequency of most mainstream processors. And the PS4 GDDR5s latency is double the Xbox One's DDR3 latency.

GDDR5 has around ~8-10x worse latency compared to DDR3. So the CPU in the PS4 is going to be hurt by this. Everybody's talking about bandwidth but the Xbox One is going to have such a huge latency advantage over the Ps4's Ram, that maybe in the end it's going to be better off.

I would also have to give Xbox One the software advantage for developers. I will get both consoles day one. But, Though it looks like the Ps4 a little more raw power, it also has much worse latency. Let's wait and see what actual developers have to say.

But this is where I think Xbox One will trump the ps4 in regards to sales.

A. When parents, noobs, and your every day buyer compares consoles...They will look identical in regards to numbers. 8 gigs of ram, blah blah blah...They don't know nor care which is slightly more powerful. But, what they will see is all the EXTRA stuff the xbox One can do and the constant commercials that will tout all the cool things Xbox One can do..I also believe that the Xbox One will either cost the same as the Ps4 or a little less. Either way it will look like a better deal for MOST buyers.

Now sure there will be some geeks that will SCREAM that the ps4 has more raw power! But will that matter in the end if the games look very very simular? I actually believe there is a good chance that the xbox One will look as good or better in terms of graphics than the Ps4. I say that because of my previous statements.

Latency & software! Xbox One has the edge clearly in both.

Remember the ps3 had more raw power than the xbox 360...but did it matter in the end? NOPE! Most games look better on the 360 and it sold better in the USA. To be honest, I live in the USA and I could care less how either console does outside of my country. I play game with friends online. All my friends live in the United States.

I don't get paid from console sales. I'm just a gamer who buys every console every generation and I just want to play Great Games!

Ugh. Xbox One does not have GDDR3 memory.

paranoid19711665d ago

anyone disagreeing is an idiot, it's DDR3

Captain Qwark 91665d ago

im pretty sure its unconfirmed at this point unless you know something i dont

Dark_Overlord1665d ago (Edited 1665d ago )

@Captain Qwark 9

Just take a look at the article (I've highlighted the section below, look for the -'s)

"A follow-up architecture panel hosted by Microsoft's Larry Hyrb soon put paid to the latter, more optimistic appraisal of the situation. Very early on it was established that ESRAM is indeed incorporated into the Xbox One design - essentially a large, very fast cache of embedded memory attached to the GPU and CPU that helps to make up the bandwidth deficit inherent in using slower memory. So even without direct confirmation, we now knew that the 8GB of memory in Xbox One is indeed DDR3 as opposed to the bandwidth-rich GDDR5 found in the PlayStation 4

--------(and Wired's internal photography of the One confirms 2133MHz DDR3 Micron modules).------

Xbox One may well have a latency advantage over PS4 and power consumption will probably be lower, but GPU bandwidth - a key element in graphics performance - is indeed more limited on the Microsoft hardware."

MS will delay the xbox 1's release.

awi59511664d ago

Well it depends on the price of the PS4 also. I wonder if sony learned about these crazy launch prices for it.

ijust2good1665d ago (Edited 1665d ago )

Microsoft has lost the plot..they couldn't even give Xbox One specs in more detail that anyone can understand...billions of transistors ahahaha lol that's been around for years. What kind of RAM and bandwidth, How many TFLOP of computational power? wouldn't that be more simple to answer.

U have to respect Sony for going all out, they took allot of shit from PC warrior geeks with there nuclear powered £2000+ sex machines and not forgetting the Nvidia clowns but at-least they had balls to show off PS4's specs and showcase a game that uses its power. PS4 might not be the most powerful system money could buy but atleast they came out with pride and said this is what we can do with our specs.

Proper FAIL from Micro$oft.

esemce1665d ago

Maybe MS didn't mention the system specs for the same reason Nintendo withheld WiiU specs and that's because they are inferior to the competition (PS4).

If Sony has free online MP, no fee for used games and a similar or lower price than the XboxOne then it's an easy choice for me, do you agree real gamers ?

Pintheshadows1665d ago

I'd laugh if Sony intentionally undercuts MS. After the expensive launch of the PS3 maybe they'd be willing to sell the PS4 at a loss to gain an install base fast and recoup their money on games.

Sony does seem to be in a trolling mood recently afterall. I have a feeling they are going to go for the throat at E3.

UnHoly_One1665d ago (Edited 1665d ago )

I wouldn't, because it isn't a choice. I (and most "real gamers") will have both without a doubt.

Kos-Mos1664d ago

How can Nintendo hide the specs when the reveal of the console and the release of the console were a year before PS4? Unless they knew what road Sony would take...There are so many childs who are fanboys on this site, it`s sickening.

Brazz1665d ago

can't agree more! bubble ya!
