TechRadar: PS4 vs Xbox One: which is better?

TechRadar writes: The launches of Xbox One and PS4 are a few short months away, as both consoles are about to go toe-to-toe this holiday season.

Gamers are putting their pre-order money down as if it's an expensive bet on which video game system will deliver the best performance over the next decade.

Both systems are evenly matched in many respects and should be able to usher in the next generation of gaming that the Wii U hasn't been able to deliver.

With E3 2013 in the books, we can finally get a better perspective as in a PS4 vs Xbox One comparison about their finer differences. (PS4, Xbox One)

Xbox wins hands down. It has more exclusives, better exclusives, every Xbox is a dev kit, 300k servers, the azure cloud, a ton more features, and kinect.

Meanwhile, PS4 has zero main advantages over X1, only a SLIGHT advantage in specs that will probably show a subtle difference 6 years from now on a first party title if you're lucky.

To each his own, but every time I see a post or an article saying they choose PS4 it's always the same "well last gen Sony had more exclusives so this gen they will too". News flash: MS has 1 billion invested in exclusives and more games in development than ever before.

@Maria

Show me a source that says GDDR5 ram is twice as powerful as DDR3 ram, not bandwidth of CPU. Faster ram =/= twice as powerful. Remember when PS4 was thought to have 7gb of ram for gaming vs x1's 5, and all the ps4 fans were claiming PS4 had a 50% advantage? With your theory, the PS4 used to have the equivalent of 14gb of DDR3 ram, which is not the 50% you fanboys were bragging about, if you know math then that's almost 300% more powerful! Yet fanboys were bragging about only 50%? Go figure.

There is definitely a few things that the X1 can do that the PS4 cant. That's why I want one.
The PS4 just seems to be a better graphically PS3, is there anything else I am missing.
On this site graphics are all that matters. Kinect is stoned to death on this site, I fail to see how someone cant have a great time on Kinect Sports 1 & 2 and Child of Eden on 360s Kinect among others.
Perhaps its just me getting older but I want new experiences.

They stuck a new graphics card & RAM in the PS3 and called it the PS4... Congrats...

They rebuilt the Xbox, rebuilt the OS, rebuilt IE, put in hypervisor so they can run together, built a cloud system on a level that no one has ever tried before, redid Kinect from ground up (has no Prime Sense tech in it whatsoever), and decided to throw Xbox Live on the cloud as well) and gave everything dedicated resources as well... And then threw $1billion for new game development....

The next generation is pretty much going to be decided by who has the better gaming service. So far we know what xbox has to offer....if Sony is only bringing in a party chat to the battle it's not going to be so even, knowing we have to pay for both.
trafalger  +   431d ago
PS4 - better specs on paper
PS4 - more internal studios with a proven track record
Xbone - better launch line-up
Xbone - likely to have better online services and multiplayer experience.
PS4 - cheaper

my prediction, short term xbone, long term ps4. both will be good products though and i dont know why we have to have one winner. we should look forward to these products, not whine and bash them every day.

You can have just as fun with the new eye toy and its games as kinect 2. The point it they are not on the level as AAA TITLES, and will never be seen as a must have for when engaged in online or single player games. You don't buy a console for these devices, you buy the console that will offer the best exclusives. And the ps4 has changed more dramatically than xbox one over xbox 360. from x chat, to the user interface, operating system changes, cloud new controller and system features like recording gameplay etc. It's even got a separate chip in the background. Ps3 had a inferior graphic chip to xbox 360, yet still managed to have greater visuals than on xbox 360 with exclusives. This time the ps4 has a better graphics card, now imagine how much greater graphics can look when developers like naughty dog tap into it. Ps4 clearly will win again.

Honestly, let's stop with specs. At the end of the day it's how the devs program for the selected console. PS3 specs where basically superior to the 360 besides a couple of things, but 360 Multi-plat games still looked better majority of the time, even after devs got used to the ps3. Even if PS4 does have better specs, I'm almost positive the difference won't be so surprising.

Right now Sony fans should be worried about the package you're all going to have to pay for called PSN. Sony delivers on the gaming experience, but MS proved that games aren't the only important piece to the future of gaming.

@Maria If you'd watched the Titanfall Diary shortly after E3 (I know you didn't) they said there goal was to make it as fun as possible. They're easily tackling gameplay over graphics and presentation.

The rest of of what yo said is true. But everything on paper, which means is yet to be seen how games will differ between X1 and PS4.

So people can stop posting the PS4 specs until we see physical evidence. Those specs are great but its not doing anything for me. Not like it matters my goal is to to get both anyway.

Imo I think we're gonna see Identical games third party wise between the two.

But that's why I said we'll see soon enough.

How can the number of exclusives last have predetermined next gen?? That is ludicrous. Microsoft will have more exclusives this time around as they have bought 5 new studios just to make exclusive games not Kinect avatar stuff like Rare did

We've already seen some of these exclusives while Sony has shown very few and how many of the unannounced ones will be Knacks and Octodads we don't know.

So far, X1 has a welcoming bunch: Ryse, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct, Titanfall, D4, Forza, Halo 5, Sunset Overdrive, Crimson Dragon, Project Spark, Gears of War 4 and the Black Tusk game we saw a preview of at E3

I personally think xbox one will have better games than the ps4 next gen
ovnipc  +   431d ago
Wrong!!!! No one knows X1 latest specs, it may be 12Gb instead of 8Gb of ram. and its going to be 1.58 tf no 1.28. Or maybe more. Xbox its upgrading the consumer version. PS4 already has its cards on the table xbox not yet. M$ they are not stupid they do things for a reason. X1 all the way. And 300k Servers its nothing compare to the servers they have on reserve. Compare 9Billion $ servers to 384M servers of sony.

Maria is right in one thing.

Titanfall dosen't look as good as Killzone.

It dosen't has more exclusives. Xbox as 15 while Ps4 as 20 in the first year.

And in terms of "better exclusives" that's debatable.

But you are right in the other stuff, but please "MS has 1 billion invested in exclusives and more games in development than ever before". Don't fall to PR crap.

Anyway Xbox live will be way better. I'm sure the online experience will be better than in a computer itself. Let's hope it manages to be as generous like Sony.

guerilla games is a 1st party studio and killzone shadow falls budget is likely much higher with more people working on it than the amount of people and resources for titanfall. titanfall is also running at twice the frame rate. even comparing forza 5 to driveclub isn't the same thing either. needless to say both systems are next gen consoles.

better is often defined by experiences, not specs.
MariaHelFutura  +   431d ago
So lets get this straight?

Ryse- was a 360 game
DR3- was a 360 game
Project Spark- was a 360 game
Killer Instinct- was most likely a 360 game and looks like a 360 game .
Titanfall- run on an engine from 2004
Forza 5- is being released unfinished
The Controller- needs battery packs and AA's
The Console- is the size of VCR and requires a power brick

I know it's hard to take but PS4 is wining on pre-orders+specs by a large margin.

it's going to be a tough generation with no sales to brag about or games for others to envy, but if your getting the XBone for your own satisfaction nothing else should matter.

What do you mean PS4 has a slight advantage over microsoft and the xbone? If that were the case then im sure the PS4 wouldnt be destroying the xbone in pre orders. There are some major reasons why the PS4 is winning in pre orders. The biggest is the 100 dollar price advantage. Sony has alot more 1st party studios that microsoft the further into the gen th PS4 is gonna have undeniably better exclusives (which the PS3 has proven by completely destroying the 360 in this category for the last 5 years). While xbox live is definaltely offers a better experience PSN+ has better value. Anohter important factor is the fact that headsets and other peripherals will be backwards compatible with the PS4 the wont with the xbone. Before you say "its just a cheap headset". Kinect is a terrible excuse for a chatting mechanic because it doesn't block out excess sound. If you call these no advantages then you are definitely wrong.

Looks some fanboys are just in plain denial and don't wanna accept reality and just decide to ignore obvious facts.

@drsfinest72

Exactly. The PS4 most definatly is destroying in pre-orders, but that is compleatly expected. Unless you just got money to throw around you are going to buy a PS4 if you want a next gen console from day one. THAT is why the PS4 is dominating in sales, and THAT is a fact. Yes the PS4 specs are higher but you are only going to see those differences on their exclusive titles. Yes their exclusives are better then Xbox's, but Sony fanboys want to act like MS exclusives don't exist or something. I mean when it boils down to it its Halo and Gears vs uncharted, god of war, infamous, and the last of us. yes PS is winning that fight but it doesn't mean that Xbox is just some POS. Also for all those people bashing the Kinect mic, mainly you folks who haven't even read anything in depth about the features of the Kinect mic, it does know the difference between tv noise and background noise and your voice. if it can remember you face and your voice i would figure that it can pull your voice out of the mix of sound, and if your kids are screaming or your girl won't stop talkin then hey, you might have to maybe buy a mic. Its not that serious, and the real gamers that really get in to multiplayer are going to buy a nice headset anyway. Even the hardcore PS4 gamers are going to get replacements for their shitty 15 dollar bundled headset.

"Remember when PS4 was thought to have 7gb of ram for gaming vs x1's 5, and all the ps4 fans were claiming PS4 had a 50% advantage?"

That 50% came from comparing the GPUs, not the RAM.

This is an old article, just updated with the latest PS4 RAM information.

"Xbox One's "guaranteed memory" amounts to a slightly higher 5GB for developers, as the OS takes up 3GB, which probably doesn't make up for the DDR3 memory usage for most developers."

GDDR5 is simply better for gaming.

From AMD themselves...
http://www.amd.com/us/produ...

Click on the Performance tab to see comparisons of 512MB GDDR5 vs 1GB DDR3 and 1GB GDDR5 vs 2GB DDR3

Those comparisons weren't done with the GPUs from PS4 and One, but if PS4's GPU has the advantage that's been reported all along, the overall performance difference will be even greater. Even if the two GPUs end up being the same, PS4 still has the advantage.

Here's where you yell "Cloud power!!!"...

...and here's where reality looks down and whispers "No."

Xbox only has better exclusives when you like shooters and nothing else.
PlayStation has always been big on variety and that pays off.

Another thing in Sony's consumers' favour is that Sony fully keeps supporting their current gen. They did that with PS2 and they do it with PS3 with The Last of Us arguably the best title coming out late in the cycle. Still good stuff to come while Microsoft has abandoned the Xbox for a while with nothing much coming from them.
That also brings me to PS4 because I know Sony keeps great support.

Furthermore I am not forgiving Microsoft to try and screw gamers.

@ George the ram was debunked by dev-- from what i understand the limitation was imposed because of early dev kits and debug unit had only 8 gb--- with new sdk the problem should be resolved--- even if sony decides to hold on to the memory-- tell me a game that requires more than 5 gb at this time-- honestly its a smart move because the only reason why ps3 cant have crosschat was because the os footprint was too small to incorporate it as the rest of the resources are all used for gaming-- its gives room for expansion on both the os and games-- last i checked the numbers, ps4 had more exclusives somewhere down the line of 20 to 15----you act like a uninformed retard-- MS doesnt have 300k real servers-- good portion of it will be virtualized and back ups aka mesh topology for most enterprise level businesses-- second azure isnt only for games it used for bunch of microsoft products-- i think u misunderstanding what the servers are really about for gaming--- has couple key things that ms will do-- one of the thing that doesnt do is improve graphics like most people are thinking-- graphics packets are huge and would cause too much latency-- and if this was the case xbox wouldnt need the one as 360 would suffice for graphics update based on what most people are thinking--- one thing it will do is make the world more dynamic and vivid-- but gaikai can be utilized the same way so im confused by your point.-- you say tons of more features but other than a unwanted kinect you fail to follow through with any facts--- news flash MS isnt dumb enough to invest 1 billion into a gaming market-- how gullible of an idiot are you? Better exclusives are subjeective -- for the record most people are referencing the power difference between the two flops difference-- gaming side may see improvements on sony platform general apps more on xbox sides--- honestly i wished somebody would put you out of your misery-- life must be pretty hard for someone like you.

UPDATE: Sony has issued a statement:

"We would like to clear up a misunderstanding regarding our "direct" and "flexible" memory systems. The article states that "flexible" memory is borrowed from the OS, and must be returned when requested - that's not actually the case.

The actual true distinction is that:

"Direct Memory" is memory allocated under the traditional video game model, so the game controls all aspects of its allocation
"Flexible Memory" is memory managed by the PS4 OS on the game's behalf, and allows games to use some very nice FreeBSD virtual memory functionality. However this memory is 100 per cent the game's memory, and is never used by the OS, and as it is the game's memory it should be easy for every developer to use it.

We have no comment to make on the amount of memory reserved by the system or what it is used for."

Based on this information, plus the new source coming forward to explain the properties of flexible memory, our take on this right now is that there is 4.5GB of conventional RAM available to developers, along with the OS-controlled flexible memory Sony describes, in addition to that.

We understand that this is a 1GB virtual address space, split into two areas - 512MB of on-chip RAM is used (the physical area) and another 512MB is "paged", perhaps like a Windows swap file. But to be clear, of the 8GB of GDDR5 on PS4, our contention is that 5GB of it is available to developers.

The good news is that the amount is static and not dictated by OS functions as we stated in our original post, making it a lot easier for developers to work with.

There is a reason why you have one bubble and this line is it "It has more exclusives, better exclusives". This is not fact, this is made up by people like you. Xbox one has shown more exclusives but you or I have no idea whether it will have more or they will be better than the PS4 exclusives in the long run.
When trying to make a point stick to the facts, not made up opinions and future predictions that can only ever be a guess at best.
kinect is not for everyone and the cloud is untested and unproven. How does it being a dev kit help you? It just means there could be an awful lot of crap games lying around.

It's important when you try and sell something you do it properly from the outset, don't treat your loyal customers like idiots and be honest upfront.....

How can anyone make such a statement as, Xbox or Sony for that matter, "wins hands down" neither one has released yet. A lot of people said the same thing about the PS3 this Gen and look at how Sony came on in the end. And I don't think anyone can say that the PS4 will have the same type of problems coming out of the gate this gen. You should take it easy with the name calling too because your ridiculous comment about Xbox winning is a huge fanboy statement. Naming Kinect as an advantage is absurd and more features? Other than the TV/DVR features you can't say, because neither one has entirely revealed their consoles. Using your logic Sony wins hands down simply because they are the clear winners for showing the better support for indie devs straight out the gate unlike Xbox trying to play catch up. I also disagree with you about the exclusives, Sony has a history of having the better exclusives. News flash: MS never said how much of that money was being put towards IP's, Kinect games, studio acquisition or purchases of timed exclusivity deals.
TrollCraftTales  +   431d ago
It doesn't have more exclusives at all. Xbox has 15, PS4 has 20+ so far...

It is your opinion which games you like better, I personally like PS4's exclusives better, but I don't care if you think so or not..

If the Kinect works right it will be amazing, and a game changer for the video game industry, but if it doesn't, then it's a waste of $500, when you could have bought a $400 PS4.

The PS4 has many advantages, Better PR, more fan trust, more exclusives, lower price, PS+ free games, full 100% indie support, more F2P games, Naughty Dog, Sony Santa Monica.. The list goes on..

Give me a source that says XBox has 1 billion on exclusives (Xbox One only, no PC crap or Xbox 360)

1 GB of DDR3 equals 512 MB of GDDR5, that is just about %50 percent, also as far as I know Sony hasn't announced they "won't" use 7gb of ram, only rumors...

You need to research things before you get your fanboy hormones in the way of knowledge...

And you say we sont see it in 6 years? lol. Well i can say the same about your cloud technology. By the time microsoft is done building up all these networks, or regardless how long it takes them, we might see 1 game come out , such as an mmo, that has cloud features in it. First of all you wont see cloud features in multiplat games if it cant be done on ps4. Secondly why couldn't they give a damm example of cloud tech in use at microsoft E3. Show an example of work in progress. What ever post processing effects the cloud will eneable, the ps4 will achieve by then,m either through their own cloud services or the ps4 cpu/gpu.

Your full of shit if you think xbox one has more exclusives. That is the funniest thing iv'e heard this year. Firstly the launch line up is average at best, not one AAA game or anything that seems great. You do not know the complete line up of ps4 launch games. Thirdly use your damm brain. PLaystation has always had the best exclusives, ever since ps1 days! clearly ps2 and ps3 had better exclusives over the xbox/xbox 360, and if you were smart you'd realize that trend will continue. Ps3 is still getting AAA games while xox 360 is dead. Microsoft investing 1 billion in games, really, to play catch up with sony for their lack of exclusives on xbox 360, seeing how all the money went to advertise halo. Yeah like anyone is going to believe them. Don mattrick was still around when they said that. If they got that much money to invest in games, why not buy out esclusives like gta or mgs. Believe what you want but the ones with the brains know that sony will keep delivering the best games, not just shooters.

Kinect is just a side experience which does nothing to AAA games. Sony has their new eye with it's own advancements, for people who want other non core experiences. And for a company that can't stick to it's promises and keeps back treadling because of what sony is doing, they really fucked. How could people with such great" vision of product make changes so quick. I guess their vision wasn't truly that great to begin with!! So good luck with your xbox one

this will show that GDDR5 is more sufficient than DDR3 bro http://www.amd.com/us/produ...

but at the same time we have yet to see what ESRAM could do. last time I checked, that really helped the 360 win the multiplat wars but I could be wrong.

Unlike the first comment (which I should have realised something like that would immediately hit the page) I am going to say a reason why I posted this. It doesn't say which is better overall but gives a full rundown on what to expect in a comparison yet unbiased way. Which is what these articles should be doing

I'm going to list what I think/know is better in each system I will use references from the history of both Playstation and Microsoft for this. And I prepare for stealth disagrees but here I go.

# of exclusives (first year)
Microsoft 15
Sony 20 (point goes to Sony)

Quality of exclusives
Both have quality exclusives both Sony has way more goty contenders/winners than Xbox (fact) so point goes to Sony

Specs
Both have their advantages and disadvantages but facts are facts (from what we know) point goes to Sony

Online platform
We don't know how well the new psn will be so going off last gen Microsoft wins that one so point Microsoft

Psn value/ xbl value
Not even comparable psn wins that hands down

Features
Both have very similar features with both systems doing one thing better than another so point too both of them. But an extra point for kinect for Xbox

Price
Point Sony

Controllers (all opinion) so point to both

Total score
Sony 7
Microsoft 4

Games-wise, the very fact that they have Naughty Dog means PS4 will own this coming gen, but tech-wise, the Xbox One is infinitely more exciting. This is my opinion, though, as I can't speak for all.
ThatCanadianGuy514  +   431d ago
PS4 being more powerful, and cheaper, better looking, and housing some of the best and most talented developers in the industry earns it my vote.

Im excited for Kinect. I will take full advantage of it's snap features. I'll be able to play three of my favorite franchises in Forza, Assassins Creed, Halo. On top of that Metal Gear 5 will be there day one. My favorite fighting franchise, Killer Instinct, is also back! Been with Xbox for 2 gens now and they satisfy my gaming needs, gen 3 for them doesn't look any different. X1 is my no brainer.

I am looking forward to see what Naughty Dog and Santa Monica do as much as I'm looking forward to the next, supposed, open world Halo. I'm sure they won't disappoint.

Ever since that report about the ps4 having 4.5-5.5 gbs of ram for games, trolls have been everywhere on anything to do with ps4. Last time I checked gddr5 is better than ddr3 in ALMOST every way!
AngelicIceDiamond  +   431d ago
The problem I can see with X1 is what features are we getting at launch? The main features will be with Kinect and cloud. But how long will Gamesharing take?

And

How fleshed are the features gonna be? While PS4 seems simpler but powerful. They have features that everyone has been clamoring for such as X Game Chat added game recording with the Share button and the strangely forgotten feature to take over somebodies game. In reality that's literally all what gamers need. While Xbox is looking at gamers and Beyond but will it all work?

By well of God
At Gamescom, Sony will show us Gameplay of Order 1886 & see the rest of PS4 exclusives like ND, Media Molecule, SSM etc. All we know from Sony are just Knack, Order 1886, Infamous Second Son, KZ SF & Drive Club whish is just 5 can't wait to see the rest of 20 or 30 Sony games. :)
C-Thunder  +   431d ago
I'm not making predictions on what we'll see from gamescom, I'd think they'll show a few unannounced exclusives, but don't want to get my hopes up if they plan on holding out.
ABeastNamedTariq  +   431d ago
It's all about the games first and foremost for me, so that's why I'm going with PlayStation first. I (KEYWORD: I) like what they have to offer. But I'll be getting an Xbox too as to not miss out on Forza, Halo, Gears (hopefully), and..maybe Dead Rising.

And lol to the first poster saying that Xbox has more AND better exclusives. It's a fact that they don't (for the first part). MS said 15 for the first year, and showed just about all of them. Sony said 20 for the first year, and they only announced a few. They're playing their cards right, in my opinion. 12 of those are new IPs (The Order being one of them), and they can wow Gamescom with those. Microsoft is coming for the throat too, but with a lot less to show off. Maybe more features or something. That second part is pure opinion, which is why I'm going with PS4 first. (Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to bash the Xbox, I'm just saying that guy was wrong.)

Tech-wise, Sony still has a slight advantage, but I could care less right now. I'm just saying, I don't know what "superior technology" you Xbox diehards are speaking of (Kinect maybe?) But it doesn't even matter, because both consoles are more alike than ever. I just want to play Infamous lol. And I likes my JRPGs (I'm just starting to get into Disgaea.. (I don't know if I spelled that right) and Persona..I have yet to play Ni No Kuni too. I don't know about that Tales series yet)

Kinect does seem interesting though. I'll be sure to mess with that when I get my Xbox next year.

Love the techradar guys alway go on there site for the latest reliable news.
basically im a 360 fan, but next gen im going sony 100% but ill still play my 360 time to time.
ill buy an xbone but maybe 2 years down the line once it's like 230/260 and buy halo and maybe another top exclusive xbox one will have.
all I know is ps4 was built for bf4 but thats my view but what dice said, the more power the better ie ps4 so it wins my vote as 70% of my gaming time will be bf4.
memots  +   431d ago

MultiConsoleGamer  +   431d ago
Opinions and fan bait.
McScroggz  +   431d ago
The thing I don't get is this. When it comes to the specs of the console, the PS4 is better in virtually every way. Some like to quip that if you care about specs buy a PC. Fine, even though a consoles power affects many things (multiplatform games, for example), but I'm willing to just gloss over that because what really matters is games.

Which is where I'm confused. Consider Sony's exclusive games this generation then consider Microsoft's. Compare the development studios from both companies. Even if you think the Xbox One's launch lineup is more compelling (which I don't), Sony still has a lot more games to announce plus there is an entire console lifespan to consider. So, if for some reason specs don't matter I think it's foolish to argue games for the Xbox One at this point. If there is a game or two that you cannot live without ok, but it seems like a majority of posters mostly want to stir the pot.

You can't ignore specs just like you can't ignore the past (for both companies). The Xbox One has some cool features that the PS4 cannot do, but most of the features can and will be done on the PS4. I don't begrudge anybody who chooses the Xbox One, but what I don't understand is this idea that A) a consoles specs don't matter at all and B) Microsoft will offer better games than Sony.

goldwyncq  +   431d ago

windblowsagain  +   431d ago
If the xbone wants to run BF4 at the same level as the PS4, they are either going to have to lower the rez or drop assets.

It does not have enough power to run the game at 60fps.

xbone will probably lock BF4 at 30fps.
Grown Folks Talk  +   431d ago
Why do people keep using the 15 & 20 exclusives in the 1st year stat? That's 1st party exclusives, not total exclusives. Besides that, if you like Microsoft exclusives more, you don't care if PS4 has more.
unicron7  +   431d ago
Will be going with PS4. Better hardware and $100 cheaper. I cannot justify spending an extra $100 on the Xbone, being that it is so similar. I also hate that I have a Kinect forced on me. I DON'T WANT ONE. Period. I'll gladly get the XBone once it is at a reasonable price later down the line. But $500 for that thing? Pfft. Keep dreaming.
Khajiit86  +   431d ago
I am getting both but PS4 is just simply better than the Xbox one. I liked kinect when I had it but am really hoping Microsoft comes thru with 2.0 because I originally got the Kinect because of all the promisies that Microsoft could never come thru with. I loved my Playstation Move because that ball of light on the controller gave you so much precision that the kinect could not. I am not judging the Xbox One by its launch line up like most but for the exclusives I can not miss in the future.
urwifeminder  +   431d ago
I know nothing about ps4 nor do i want to so xbox one is better for me.
