People have to buy before it can fail.

Belking1651d ago

it will outsell Vita....lol

CaEsAr-1651d ago

Yeah, because now ths PS3 has outsoled your beloved console, you must troll the Vita. Lol you're pathetic.

kingmushroom1651d ago

at least the vita never RROD.

for some reason i feel the X1 will have some failure

psyxon1651d ago

i noticed, you're kind of butt hurt over the harsh criticism of the xbox one lol.

NewMonday1651d ago

industry insiders say the XB1 is having problems with yields, that is the same problem that caused the RROD, MS will have to downclock the GPU about 25% or risk another brick console disaster.

the last of us probably would red ring xbox 360s, the last of us looks better then xbox one games showcased on their reveal event lol cod ghost is next gen and looks outdated compared to the last of us.

Ignorance is quite prominent on this website, please show respect for all platforms.

The Xbox 360 in terms of graphical power would be able to run the Last of Us. Only two drawbacks though:
1.Sony Exclusive
2. Blu-ray disk will always have a advantage over standard disks.

You also got to remember some interesting facts such as
e.g.
The Xbox 360 can push 500 million polygons while the PS3 can push 250 million polygons.

The key thing that helped sonys PS3 in terms of graphical performance is Blu-ray in my opinion which allowed high memory games being displayed.
If it weren't for Blu-ray I doubt any platform would have MGS4 lol.

I can just see this comment getting disliked by the numbers.

let me know when you wake from this dream....lol

Not one bit.It's to be expected here....lol This wouldn't be N4G if they didn't hate on everything xbox related. I think it's funny because at the end of the day it's just fanboys bumpbing their gums on a keyboard trying to convince people that their choice is better. Game on Fanboys.

@CalamityCB:

The reason you're going to get dislikes is because for all that technical points you try to make, there isn't a game on the 360 that comes close to TLOU. The PS3 has always pushed graphic quality with the only exception are multiplatform titles. And lately there are even exceptions to that point.

@Belking:
Its also, "Hey! You're being ripped off!" or, "Hey! This new thing is an intrusion of personal privacy!" or, "Hey! Try to think for yourself!" Which often gets dismissed as fanboyism.

"You also got to remember some interesting facts such as

What game exactly can you show as proof of this? Right..it doesn't matter if it makes billions of polygons if no one can utilize it.

MysticStrummer1651d ago

"This wouldn't be N4G if they didn't hate on everything xbox related."

I'm pretty sure this site was still called N4G a few years back, when everything PS3 related was getting the hate.

Ju1651d ago (Edited 1651d ago )

Lately top tier MP games run better on PS3 - like Metro 2033 (runs 5fps higher than 360 on heavy load) and Tomb Raider which runs with less tear and better lighting. All in all, I think devs figured how to max the PS3 and it shows an advantage even in games vs other platforms. I think that myth can finally put to rest. Obviously knowledge and SW technology has matured late in its life cycle which makes this possible.

Fool me once, shame on you.
Fool me twice, shame on me.

We'll see how things turn out. I'll believe that the failure rate is in a good place when I see it.

MYSTERIO3601651d ago

Its good to know although they really couldn't afford another hiccup at launch like they had with the 360.

Angeljuice1651d ago

Its funny to hear from Microsoft about the "high failure rate" of the 360 as they spent half of the last gen denying there was a problem (until they were threatened by legal action).

IcicleTrepan1651d ago

They did deny it at first, but after the first year or so (not 'half of the last gen') they extended the warranty voluntarily and also replaced all of those RROD boxes that people were sending in.

Yeah there was a high failure rate but you make it sound like there was no support for the end user, which there was.

Conan-O-Brady1651d ago (Edited 1651d ago )

Voluntarily?

You make it sound as if MS extended that warranty out of sheer kindness to us early adopters. Wasn't there a threat of litigation?

My personal experience was two RROD's back to back with my last replacement box scratching every disc I owned....When I contacted MS I was told it was my fault, I must have moved the console while it was running and they would not replace my console again or any of the scratched discs.

This was before the BBC watchdog investigation brought it to public light that they had chosen to not use a bumper on the the disc drive in order to save a few pennies....To this day they still maintain it's the users fault that those discs were scratched.

I would bring up "E74" but that was after I became an early un-adopter.

We have yet to see.

The GPU is being underclocked as to avoid certain performance and heat issues. That is just what we currently know.

Since the One was clearly a rush job, who knows what other myriad of issues there will be?
How do we know the new Kinect won't crap out and render the One useless?

Its a risk buying one of those. A gamble due to the rush and uncertainty.

IcicleTrepan1651d ago

'The GPU is being underclocked as to avoid certain performance and heat issues. That is just what we currently know. '

You currently don't know jack as this is a rumour and most likely a false rumour as it doesn't make much sense.

'Since the One was clearly a rush job'. Oh? care to fill us in on how you 'clearly' know this? Just popped it out last minute did they, without spending years on it? Yeah I'm sure you're right... </s>

SpinalRemains1651d ago (Edited 1651d ago )

Look at the actions of MS over the last 2 months!

They had to delay their reveal due to being surprised by SONY.

They backtracked on every single statement initially made concerning DRM and fees.

Jesus man, don't expect everyone to do your homework for you. The console is an utter mess and is not ready for mass production. The fact that the GPU needs to be underclocked is a clear indication of the quick and careless approach to it's design, and frankly, we shouldn't be surprised seeing as faulty hardware is their M.O. (RROD, noisy drives, crappy medium format)
