EA: PS4 and Xbox One 8x more powerful than current-gen, praises similar hardware

XMNR: Electronic Arts had plenty to say about the PS4 and Xbox One during a shareholder's call on Wednesday including how much more powerful the machines are than the PS3 and Xbox 360 and how the publisher will benefit from similar architectures. (Battlefield 4, PS4, Xbox One)

WiiU is 2 times the power of X1 and PS4.

If you don't believe me, ask Super Mario

Yeah, good thing the devs will have a lot less headaches, and a lot less manpower will be needed.

Good news for gaming.
n4f  +   557d ago
tsk tsk, its a business.
less manpower=same amount of game that used to require more people.
so in the boss of many studio, this mean more manpower for more game.
but yeah your are right we got more game in the end but lets hope quality wont be affected

"We're going to be able to create experiences that are going to be 60 frames a second, 1080p."

I wonder if that statement is related to BF4.
Majin-vegeta  +   557d ago
Its already been confirmed 60FpS on next gen consoles.
M-M  +   557d ago
They didn't confirm that it would be in 1080p though, kind of worries me that they say it will be at 60FPS but didn't mention the resolution.
Muigi  +   557d ago
They confirmed 60fps at e3.
ThyMagicSword  +   557d ago
Especially the Ps4, Xbox One maybe 3 "One" time more powerful than Xbox 360.
tuglu_pati  +   557d ago
Ms already said the XBone is 8x more powerful that current gen. I think your statement is wrong, but then that makes PS4 12x more powerful, i could be wrong.

Could any one with some knowledge about this clarify?

Wait this can't be right , the ps4 is 60% more powerful the xbone , so my calculations make it xbone is eight times whilst the ps4 is around 13 times... Correct?
tuglu_pati  +   557d ago
so now is 60% i thought it was 50% you guys have to make up your mind.
awi5951  +   557d ago
The ps4 numbers are crap teraflops dont mean crap so they ps4 can do 1.8 terra flops big woop my 3 year old graphics card can do 2.0 teraflops?
tuglu_pati  +   557d ago
So if the Xbox One is 8x more powerful than current gen, and the PS4 is 50% more powerfull than X One that makes the PS4 what? 12x more powerful that current gen. Just wondering.

Terraflops dont mean crap. Ps4 can do 1.8 terraflops my 3 year old pc gpu can do 2 terraflops thats just a fancy numbers it doenst mean crap if it doesnt run games at those numbers.
YNWA96  +   557d ago
Some teraflops, but a lot of flip flopping over a stupid number....
ThyMagicSword  +   557d ago
Because the Ps4 is 50% more powerful than Xbox One, they musn't be around 12 or 13 times more powerful than current gen, eight times more and the Ps4 50% more than Greytone (Xbox One), you're doing wrong with Facts, don't ya?
tuglu_pati  +   557d ago
right! that makes sense.
Nafon  +   557d ago
That is just theoretical power. The 50% more power came from http://www.sonyrumors.net/2... (among other places). The speed of RAM isn't that important for gaming, and FLOPS, well, its very debateable. just google "do flops matter" and most places say that it depends. here's just one (idk where it came from or if it can be trusted though lol) http://www.hpcsaudi.com/wp-...

The PS4 is indeed more powerful, but how much more powerful it is and how much that will affect graphics and performance in games compared to the xb one is up to the developers to find out, and reveal. I can see microsoft paying devs/pubs to limit the ps4 version to keep the two equal.
TomOfAllTrades  +   557d ago
Lol at the people disagreeing that the PS4 is more powerful than Xbox, it's not a trolling attempt it's FACT, so quit with the dislikes it's getting childish.
Hercules189  +   557d ago
We do not know the final specs yet, and how it affects the games. Its only a rumor that ps4 is 50% more powerful, and if it is will it make a huge difference in graphics quality, we will have to wait a few more mnths to find out, till then its nothing but speculation.
awi5951  +   557d ago
And terra flop numbers are a total joke pc cards had faster terraflop numbers from 3 years ago.

PS4 is significantly more powerful than Xbox One actually. Its ridiculous to not point that out and cram both of together like that.
cyhm3112  +   557d ago
yes, it is ridiculous so many people believe these bs. Do you remember that leaked 58 or something pages documents back some months ago, even MS themselves stated it is 4 to 6 times more powerful, now they changed, hahaha.
cyhm3112  +   557d ago
xbone 4 to 5X
PS4 8 to 10X
