Digital Foundry isn't the most credible of sources now that they've falsely had "inside sources" feed them info like PS4 having 4.5 gb of ram or 7 minutes recording.

Digital Foundry's credibility is junk-bond status right now after all the jumped guns and falsified "insider sources" they've been dredging up lately, specifically Richard Leadbetter.

Here's a list of some DF articles since February.

- 4 Gig PS4 is more powerful than 8 Gig Xbox One
- "Magic holes" found in the Xbox One esRAM that gives the system a mysterious upclock.
- Only 4.5 Gigs of RAM alloted for gaming on PS4, later disproven.
- "Only seven mintues" of recording time for PS4, confirmed to be 15 minutes.

That's kind of a bad title because it puts in a person's mind that if it's going to be better tomorrow, then you shouldn't buy it today.

Quote from the article:

"Microsoft's victory will unfold over time because of careful planning and willingness to look to the future".

Really, with the 180 fiasco on the policies.
I think Microsoft Task Force to control the damage, has been activated. Microsoft is good at spending $$$ when it comes to brain wash the consumers and loyal fanboys with different tactics, rumors and repeating the same information like a broken record in advertisements and different articles. This circus will be over in couple of months anyways.

@Freedomland

Also once Gamescom comes in and the cloud doesn't equate to having "the equivalent of three Xbox Ones" according to Microsoft, that's when the truth unfolds that Microsoft's over exaggeration is just a way to hype up the existing blind fans to buy the console with no knowledge that the cloud isn't as powerful as they make it out to be. If the cloud can make an Xbox One three times more powerful, then what's the need for companies like AMD and Nvidia to keep working on new chips. If they can just use the cloud to amplify the existing chips to be 3 times more powerful. The cloud is actually a bunch of dedicated servers. Think about an MMO server, where new quests appear without you needing to patch your game up to get them. The same thing Infamous 2 had if you use it's online feature. Microsoft wanted all their games to be like that, that explains the always online from the past before the 180. The "persistent world" thing is being done without the word cloud. It's just a server to carry that data for you to use when you're online. There will be no graphical jump which Microsoft wanted the fans to believe in a long time ago. That "careful planning" is just a bunch of lies that slowly reveal themselves as time comes.

DragonKnight  +   361d ago | Well said
The author's opinions aren't fact. In fact we've seen them before with the original Xbox and the PS3.

"Xbox One vs PS4: Sony Wins Today, Microsoft Wins Tomorrow And Tomorrow And Tomorrow ..."

This section is about broadband. According to the author, the Xbox One will win because of it's heavy reliance on a broadband connection. A broadband connection reliance is nothing new and started with the original Xbox. The PS4 relies on a broadband connection as well and there is currently no difference between the two consoles in this regard.

This section isn't a victory for Microsoft because it's irrelevant. The author makes the claim that it will be advantageous for Microsoft because the people who don't get the functionality of the Xbox One now, will in the future.

How is this not the case with the PS4? Is the author making the claim that tv integration will be well received by the U.S. and then years later be well received by, say, European countries who just caught up? Meanwhile the PS4 will have enjoyed years of satisfied gamers.

"Xbox One vs PS4: Cloud Computing Bets On Megabits"

This is about cloud computing. Honestly, we all know that this is the new "Power of the Cell" or "blast processing" or "4D gaming at 120FPS." Cloud computing will not be what this author thinks it will be.

Just because broadband is improving doesn't automatically make cloud computing viable. Latency is a real problem, and cost will be a huge problem as well.

The Xbox One was designed for people who don't have to worry about money, and in this economy that isn't a lot of people. Cloud computing will face a lot of problems even in the future. Plus, there's nothing to suggest Sony is neither capable nor interested in cloud computing of that nature, however problematic it is.

"Xbox One vs PS4: Better Exclusives, Better Press"

Completely subjective and no indication of the future. There is literally no reason to go any further into this.

"Xbox One vs PS4: Microsoft Will Outmuscle Sony's Manufacturing And Message"

This one uses rumours as proof and ignores the fact that, while Microsoft have HAD to change their message because they were FORCED to, Sony haven't.

You can't make the claim that a company is sending out a better message because they were forced to change their stance when the consumer base wasn't buying what the company was selling... literally.

Using the gameindustry.biz rumour about Microsoft's manufacturing completely ignores what everyone said about the allocated pre-order consoles Sony sent out to retailers, which was a lot more than Microsoft sent out if you want to believe rumours.

There's also the rumour of Microsoft being behind on the Xbox One that still hasn't yet been refuted. As we can see, rumours aren't an accurate gauge for future success nor is Microsoft's deep pockets. Having deep pockets didn't stop them from dropping support of the original Xbox after only 4 years on the market.

This article is filled with more rumours and speculation than concrete analysis so in the end all that you come away with is the author saying "I think the Xbox One will win in the future, but I can't say for sure."

I consider this whole article propaganda. It amazes me that he even points out all the PS4 advantages yet insists that MS wins - with things which nobody knows that even exist. Simply because sticking with facts will tell a different story. Interesting, interesting. Well, who knows, maybe MS will win. But so far they haven't won anything yet.
gaffyh  +   361d ago
Not going to bother reading it, but the way I see it, the only advantage that MS has is Kinect. In terms of power, PS4 is more future proof, in terms of games PS4 will be more future proof as Sony have proven for three generations that they support their consoles for a very long time, and they have the best first party of the big 3. In terms of price, PS4 is already cheaper which means they will be able to react to any price cuts for Xbone in future. So unless Kinect becomes a major factor in the future, don't see it happening, then they have a chance to win eventually. Although even then, PS4 camera can probably do a lot of what Kinect can do.

@ DragonKnight

Y'know, your comment on the latency of cloud computing made me think...

Why do some of the Xbox loyalists here on N4G make the biggest fuss about the PS4 GDDR5 RAM's "horrible latency" (which has been disproven time and time again) and yet the latency of "teh InFiNiTe ClOuD!1!!" which is several magnitudes higher than any supposed RAM latency never seems to register with them?
DragonKnight  +   361d ago
@Brutallyhonest: Well, 'Thank you and Goodnight' lol.

@dedicatedtogamers: The answer is because one argument makes the Xbox One look good and the PS4 bad, while the other makes Microsoft look like liars for promising things that aren't feasible. The question becomes "if I were an Xbox One fanboy, which argument would I support?"
malokevi  +   361d ago
"Whether or not you believe it will work as advertised, Microsoft obviously does. It's a major infrastructure commitment."

That is the most important line, and has been my rational since day 1. Their word over yours, I'll take theirs, thanks.

"Inside the console, Microsoft gave two of the four 'Memory Move Engines' the capability to process zip and LZ, memory compression formats that are used in streaming data. "Microsoft has such interest in compressing data that it has dedicated silicon to the job instead of leaving it to the CPU," writes Digital Foundry."

I hadn't read that. that's pretty cool.

If you really think they re investing millions and billions of dollars into something intangible, just so that they can woo a bunch of gamers... you really are living in a fantasy world.

"Microsoft is worth approximately $243 billion and Sony about $11.5 billion. Microsoft has very, VERY deep pockets and can afford to outspend its rival if it has to. "

This is the other important factor. both consoles will be great, but I know who to place my bet on.

yeah xbox win in what ?!!

they lost to ps2
and they lost to ps3
and now they will lose to ps4 out of the gate in both hardware and price and every place ps4 is in the pre orders lead and winning every single poll too
and both offer almost the same features

Ps4:
-better specs than xbox (GPU 30-40% more stronger,Better/Faster/more Ram)
-Free games with PSN
-have all TV features
-psn+ is as good as live
-movies, one of the best movie services available
-Records 15 minutes of game play ..xbox only 7Minutes
-Controller have touch screen
-Controller that don't need Batteries like Xbox D-Pab
-Free Party Chat unlike xbox where you have to pay for it
-Gaikai cloud streaming service
-Vita remote control feature
-Ps Camera (Which is not forced like Kinect 2.0)
-The best 1st/2nd party Support since ps1
-Ps4 is very Dev Friendly so no more lame ports
and for most part since it's the stronger console it wil be the lead system
-Multi-screen functionality
-offer both Indie and AAA support
and still much more to come
-2000 friend limit for party chat while xbox only 1000
-Cheaper by 100$ more than xbox

can't get any more clear than that

GuyManDude  +   361d ago
Not to mention that the Xbox One is dead in the water in both Europe and Japan. Japan wants nothing to do with Microsoft, and the XB1's price and focus on cable TV (which most of Europe doesn't use) makes the PS4 the favorite in those two regions.

They would have to slaughter the PS4 in the US, and given current pre-order info and poll statistics I just don't see that happening. Unless something significant changes the PS4 is a pretty safe bet over the XB1 globally.
NewsForge  +   361d ago
For all the people that believes that MS as the power of 3 Xbox Ones in the cloud (about 3500GFLOPS) for every Xbox One is delusional. It's was clarified in this OXM article that only the CPU and HDD is tripled in the cloud and not the GPU.

Its all banking on cloud computing being what MS say it is and I really think its just gonna be stuff like AI etc for forza rather than real world computing purely because the amount of bandwidth needed for the stuff people are talking about would be astronomical. Plus your still held back by your internet connection which is a lost slower at sending information than hardware inside the box.

That's what this is basically trying to say PS4 is already more powerful but Xbox will win thanks to the cloud.. Its another cloud article..... The thing is as this generation proved PS3 got the rough end of the stick with 3rd party titles getting the lower quality versions even though it had the more powerful hardware yet it still not only caught the 360 it overtook it. So you really think its gonna matter?

Heres how I see the next generation going its going to be once again Sony's mega exclusives VS MS pulling out every little bit of tech they can from the cloud e.g. Forzas updating AI. Halo evolving maps etc.. Stuff that probably won't make it to 3rd partys games thanks to keeping them as level as they can on both platforms.

So Sony's will be AAA and MS will be unique and something new. So it's all about what you as a gamer prefer but Sony will have the head start this time around which makes it very interesting especially as MS still cannot gain ground on Japan and are losing ground on Europe...
edonus  +   361d ago
I was just having an interesting conversation today with a potential new employer talking about the cloud (non gaming related) and he actually gave me some insight on why some o people deep in the tech world would say its marketing BS and PR and also a deeper insight into the depth of use the cloud actually has. His company has been around for over a decade and they do use a cloud system.

Now first all of the things MS is saying their "cloud" can do is real. This is not made up or fake all the concerns and bandwidth this and internet speeds and all that stuff is more BS than the capabilities of the cloud. The thing is the cloud isnt anything, new making people think its some new magical thing is the BS.

Knowing a little bit about marketing you are trying to deliver a message as quick as possible. The cloud is extremely versatile. Its not just one thing or one set of things. So telling someone you have something powered by the CLOUD is a lot easier than saying powered by a bunch of servers that can be customized through hardware or not that you can build any number of virtual machines that can do anything someone that can write code can imagine. Cloud is just an easier slogan.

The we went in to details about virtual machines and how deep you can get with that. Think of software like a generator and the cloud is all of the empty space around that generator. Now if you wanted that generator to run on coal in the space around or the "cloud" you would build a machine that feeds it coal. Then say you want the power it generates to be distributed to different more efficiently... you would in the empty space make a machine that distributes the the power the way you want. And keep in mind you can build any kind of a machine you want you just have to know how to build it. There is no real limitations other than the empty space you have.

Sorry to say but your second hand information is inaccurate. Bandwidth and internet speeds are a definite hurdle to cloud computing. How anyone can say the speed, and amount, of the information being transferred is irrelevant B.S. is mind boggling.
rainslacker  +   361d ago
Cloud computing is great for things that are not latency sensitive. I have written some things using cloud tech, even for Azure, and the MS tools for using it are quite robust and nice to use.

I would never discredit the cloud for it's capabilities, because it's been around for quite a while, and has proven itself, both in cloud format, and in private network use before that. Client/Server computing is far from new, cloud is just a bigger, and more capable form of it.

However, gaming is latency sensitive. Games run on a constant loop, updating everything 30-120 times a second. Due to the nature of latency, the cloud can not be used to increase the power of the console 3 times. At most, and I would never deny this, it can be used to give small enhancements to certain parts within the game loops sub routine. This in effect can free up processes to allow other things to work locally.

But, all of this cloud talk is mostly just PR smoke and mirrors. It's a promise that many people are going to be disappointed in when, or if, MS takes it's time to deliver on a big enough scale to make it worth while. Just looking at the Vita, it didn't take more than a month for people to be upset it didn't offer remote play on all games, or that PS1 titles weren't available at launch. Gamers are impatient assholes. This won't change. Sony will get the same thing with Gaikai.

Long term it's only going to get worse, because it seems that so many are hyping up cloud to be the biggest thing ever, and like you, have no idea what exactly is possible, or even feasible within a 10 year time frame. They take the marketing, which you readily admit has to be done quickly, and build it up in their own minds. They don't research the actual merits of the claims, which have been disputed, not just by techie websites, but developers themselves.

I'm happy you had an interesting conversation. Now instead of taking what that person said as factual proof, go do some research on your own. Come back with some solid credible links if you want to keep spewing your nonsense. Your either a really good troll, or you truly believe what you say. But I don't ever recall you being able to back things up with any kind of factual link(ie. not from MS PR dept).
edonus  +   360d ago
You can recognize the sony supporters because they always try to pigeon hole the cloud to one having to do the most extreme of tasks. Like rendering graphics or improving the console 3 times tomorrow. Fact is there is tons of opportunity between the clouds ultimate use and simple function.

The reason why I say the latency and speeds dont matter is because you are building virtual machines with the tools you have. It would be like building a brick house when you only have wood.... well you wont build a brick house you will be building a wood house. The speed of the internet wont work good for rendering graphics out of the cloud so.... you dont but the speed is fine for creating the foundation for the world to be rendered on and/or the lighting and/or npcs , and/or one of the texture layers in the world or a character or characters down the streets.

The thing is its not one thing. And games running in loops helps out when designing for the cloud. As a dev you know what happens next whats coming what needs to be render what needs to be calculated. All you have to do is design a piece of software to aid in the process. MS cloud computing is nothing more than adding more processing power to your console. How you use that power is up to the dev to tap.

Keep in mind we do this already, whether or not the cloud can work this way or has the infrastructure too is not even up for debate. Companies run thousand of o dollars of software of the cloud and generate game worlds.It BS to even entertain doubt that the cloud is some how non beneficial. And the biggest thing to remember is that anything that the console doesnt have to process makes the console that much stronger.

And the Gaikai argument is a total PR bullfest. Gaikai and MS Azure are totally different things. Both very interesting and useful but completely different. Let me explain the benefits of each system and i'll try not to get to technical.

Gaikai will use what I believe is called platform as a service. This means the servers sony build will have special hardware and or software in them to create the games. So in a away they will be putting something in whether Hardware or software that can create and run Ps1 games Ps2 game and Ps3 games and maybe Ps4 games.

I'm not sure if they will put in Ps4 game running abilities since the console is a Ps4 itself, remote play to the Vita is done off of the Ps4 if i am not mistaken, and I cant see Sony essentially turning your Vita into a Ps4, then why would you buy a Ps4. For me Gaikai gets interesting next gen because in theory sony could just update their servers meaning put in new components or software that out performs the Ps4 and thus you have a Ps5.

MS with the Azure network is built for computing. Basically its just like adding more resources to your console it enhances its performance. And it can be tailored to the needs of the game. Like Valve might use it to do some of the calculations the GPU would have had to do or Bethesda could use it to generate npcs and monitor their AI through a large world, or even even broadcast animations on electronic billboard in a futuristic game setting. The thing is the way MS is using it is not just 1 thing. the fact that we can already send and receive information over the internet dismisses any notion that it cant be done. And the real kicker is there is 2 line of improvement MS cloud has to follow. One is as the internet improves over the years MS system clearly get stronger because even more things can be done easier with the flow of more data.
And the second is that as developers learn how and what they can off load and process in the cloud they will be able to make better use of the power. Dont listen too those trying to dismiss the cloud.... they are agents of confusion and I am sure they will have some bias in their words.
rainslacker  +   360d ago
Yeah, thanks for the lesson in game programming. First of all, you don't always know what's coming next. Look up subroutines and event based programming. That is what game programming is. AAA Games that would benefit from what MS is proposing are not a constant, or even a rarely changing set of variables. It is a live, highly changing environment that has to exist within a set of rules.

I will agree it's up to the developer to tap. What I've seen is that what the developers are "tapping" now is not anything that any dedicated server could do without any problem. AI is one of the places where I see it as beneficial, however what MS has shown in say Forza, is not real time AI. It's a set of variables to determine AI before runtime, or a points throughout. It is a learning AI, and it is not latency intensive. It's not much different than how say a fighting game will learn which moves you use the most.

I never once discounted that cloud could be used for certain things that you mention. You speak of building the world? You're talking about a lot of data to be sent back and forth between client and server. It is completely against your first argument. Lighting is a graphics issue. Implementations like Nvidia showed earlier this week are pretty far off for the consumer level, even by Nvidia's own admission...and their servers are designed specifically around graphics, and they are doing far more than MS in this field.

I never denied that the cloud wouldn't be beneficial. I simply said that this 3x power is a pipe dream at best, and an lie at worst. No matter how much it may be possible in theory, the bandwidth and latency will never give that much power back to the console.

As far as Gaikai. It has the same ability to do what MS is claiming. But Sony is at being upfront and saying it isn't really practical right now. Gaikai, for all intents and purposes, is built for this. It runs graphics type software. Graphics type software is very important to gaming nowadays as the CPU is not used nearly as much. Most processes in gaming just run faster on a GPU.

MS runs a generalized cloud computing platform that has the software tailored to it's users needs. The servers can do whatever a regular computer can do. So what's better for gaming? A cloud platform built around NVidia Blade graphics focused servers, or a general purpose cloud computing platform that runs hundreds of thousands of applications from thousands of clients? Azure and Gaikai are not completely different things. They are pretty much the same thing, with different implementations.

Also, both would be considered Platform as a Service. From a computing standpoint there isn't much difference, between all the "as a Service" models. It's just a different way to host and deliver the actual data/applications.

I guess basically what my argument is, is that cloud isn't really going to offer much more than what a dedicated server can provide now. It's a different way to deliver content. There is nothing wrong with that.

To end, on a personal aside between you and me, I don't have to listen to the naysayers. I can research and understand the principles behind what MS is talking about because it's what I do. Most of your comment is well spoken, but at the end you get back into this whole "poisoning" thing you did with Kinect. Sure, the fanboys aren't worth listening too most of the time, but don't take their actions as reasons to dismiss the qualified people who have dismissed the cloud. MS may have something to show that will prove us all wrong. Until then, I prefer to demand proof. When they show me something impressive, I will be impressed. Simple as that.

Ok, u made a good point about PS4 gaika streaming, whatever system we bye in the end it will come down to the $ervices avaiilable. Hardcore gamers are a minority in this world, I can say that I was a hardcore gamer, but I like other things too, with this generation of gaming I found that I played less games but watch more entertainments of my choosing. I have family that live abroad and I use the Kinect to chat with them, which was better than Skype because I used one system. Do people not notice that all systems are always on, your xbox360 and PS3, what did u think that little red light on PS3 is when u turn it off or charging the xbox controller when the system is off, all systems are on even your TV. Gaming is part of entertainment it will come down too AAA exclusives first party exclusives and the best server connections the best service.
H0RSE  +   361d ago
Sony's main reason for acquiring Gaikai, was for streaming, whereas MS's intentions with Azure are much more in-depth and I guess "meaningful?" for lack of better word. MS has invested a lot more time and money into their cloud system than Sony has. MS also developed their own cloud system, whereas Sony merely purchased it. MS developing their own technology that can work with other technology that is also theirs, sounds better than simply a company buying software, and changing it where necessary. MS as a whole, also has a lot more money to play with than Sony does.
wsoutlaw87  +   361d ago
horse, i dont see how anything you said matters. MS buys everything. They bought a bunch of servers, thats just buying things. Cloud computing has the ability to improve the xbox theoretically. Streaming allows you to play games your console would never even dream of playing. How would you defend cloud computing as more meaningful?? You let MS's talk make you think they have some sort of magic going on but they just bought lots of servers. They also went ahead and bought some third party games so they would have some exclusives.

"You let MS's talk make you think they have some sort of magic going on but they just bought lots of servers. They also went ahead and bought some third party games so they would have some exclusives."

- I don't let MS talk convince me that "magic" is going happen - I let real-world convince me of the possibilities, and the results are that Azure is already an established software, and developers have already been working with it to do more than just stream games, hell to do more than just work with games at all. Gaikai lets you stream video? OnLive does/did this. Twitch.tv does this - not impressed.

My argument stems from the fact that Sony acquired cloud software, with a main focus on streaming games/video, whereas MS's Azure software, is being targeted as more of a virtual software studio for devs. Yes, it likely will be used for streaming, and Gaikai will likely be used for other operations, but I see Azure as the software where streaming is just one thing it does, not it's main focus.

-What I meant by more "meaningful" (and I stressed that this was due to lack for a better word) is that I see a cloud service that works with a game, whether it be generating content on the fly, or helping with AI, etc. as more "meaningful" than simply streaming, and I see Azure as the stronger of the 2 in this regard.

As far as the cloud goes, I see MS as the ones that will be more innovate in their application of their software, vs Sony and Gaikai, because if there's one thing I have learned it's that MS is more likely to take risks and try new things(probably because they can afford to) and Sony likes to play it safe.

This is simply an educated opinion based off information I have seen for both services, so please, don't read it as a irrefutable factual statement claiming one is better than the other. I'm not trying to get into a dick waiving contest.

in the article the author actually says that "Microsoft seems to have a more dynamic 10-year plan than Sony. In addition to investment in cloud computing, Microsoft recently filed a patent for AR glasses. Obviously these are still way early in development, but it's a forward-thinking kind of accessory that isn't even on the radar for Sony." Isn't on the radar for sony??? Haha Sony has already done live demos of their ar glasses... like 2 years ago, what a journalist. "Isnt even on the radar" lol come on now, try harder next time.

just like the xbox360 won this gen and ps3 came dead last with a full year ahead start in USA and almost a year and half in Europe

oh wait

so now ps4 is priced better
better launch support
sony will deliver exclusives
psn-plus is a established service that now millions more will enjoy

so yeh xbox one will come 2nd since wiiu has decide that it will not sell

PS4 sale numbers will blow people's mind from day one, i don't think MS could have done any worst at screwing them self around E3

$399
$499

so yeh families/casuals will go for ps4 so right out of the gate xbox one has a huge $100 disadvantage and till today MS hasn't show that xbox one is worth the extra $100 bucks
Nitrowolf2  +   362d ago
he says the xbox One is design to work in the future, does he really think Sony isn't doing the same? I mean look at the PS3, still living and still pumping dem GAMES!!

Sure I guess if you call TV the future of tomorrow...50 years ago.

I'm not trying to downplay the Xbox One, the reasoning in this article i am. Both Xbox One and PS4 will be design to work 10 years from now. Sure msot of america will have speeds of 100MB hopefully by 2020, but we are here and now and that won't be true for another 7 years when the next gen of consoles will most likely be coming.

I'm sure both consoles will do great, and honestly at this point I could careless now about who has more sales between Xbox One and PS4. Just as long as there's healthy competition we can expect better content from the two. It's not about who's going to fail, it's about who's going to supply us with the best experience, and as of now I guess it's completely debatable, but year's down the road will tell us.

I think his statement is truly in regards to the Cloud claim. Stating that Sony may have now but their system isn't future proof as the Xbone. I understand where these claims are coming from but people are completely writing off what Sony is and may provide. Overall I think until we know what both companies are planning, I don't think articles like this should be posted. Everything is speculation until proven otherwise.
TronEOL  +   361d ago
And to be honest, if MS is using the cloud to somehow magically give their console more power (lol), then can't Sony do the same thing?

Since they'll be running games of the damn thing, you think they'd be able to do whatever Microsoft decides to do since it mostly relies on internet connection and nothing else.

As for cable and all that, I can see cable companies offering apps on Smartphones and Tablets that let you watch TV on the go in the next 5 or so years (maybe sooner), so why wouldn't Sony just slap a good old "Cable TV App" onto their dashboard and call it a day? Problem solved.

You know, I actually would like to see this claim that MS states. As I said previously, I know it can be done, I just want to see it done to the claims that MS is making. The amount of increase that their stating is beyond normal. I think I will feel better about the claim if the statement was far less than than the, in recent 600%. If the claims were 20%-35%, I wouldn't complain.
Gamer1982  +   361d ago
how can the ps4 not be as futureproof? The PS4 has more modern hardware and they both have internet and disc drives. What makes the Xbone more future proof the cloud? Erm Sony has cloud technology too.. They could easily add cloud computing to the ps4 if they so wanted but does that make it more futureproof? I don't think so as its a fad as it cannot add physical horsepower to your game it can only take off stress of minor things making little to no differnce in real world gaming. The cloud will impact however in stuff like we have already seen like the evolving AI in Forza. Thats where the future of the cloud really is and you can bet your backside Sony are also doing this they just not talking about it yet as right now thats a future selling point. They are already outselling Xbone in pre-orders so save a couple of extra big announcements for when sales start to decline to boost them again. Whats the point of letting all your eggs out of your basket at once when your winning?

From article:

"Inside the console, Microsoft gave two of the four 'Memory Move Engines' the capability to process zip and LZ, memory compression formats that are used in streaming data. "Microsoft has such interest in compressing data that it has dedicated silicon to the job instead of leaving it to the CPU," writes Digital Foundry."

And as for internet speeds FIOS now offer 500Mbs/150Mbs. And that will only increase in time.

Hey, this is not a direct reply to your comment, I really want to knw where are the full specs for x1, MS has never fully spoken of the specs, did they have more that one spec, because I find it strange the only think people talk about is the ram, esram

Chevalier  +   361d ago
So the tail end of xbone will have some benefit , except which company is following through with support? Just look at the amazing exclusives on ps3 into the fall and where are the games on 360 this year? Somehow MS is going to follow through at some undisclosed time in the future? It is clear as day which company has the conviction to support their fans and vision of the future; SONY. MS will drop support before their idea can get any really benefit and it will be minimal at best.

rainslacker  +   361d ago
Most people won't have 100MB speeds by 2020. Not even half the US has broadband now. Although I would assume us hardcore gamers are probably disproportionate to that statistic. Phone/cable companies just recently started getting most of the country up to current broadband speeds. I doubt they're going to want to make another investment so soon to provide gamers with higher speeds, when they can milk current lines for all they're worth until competition pushes them further. Unfortunately, in the US, there are very few companies which have the ability to lay those kinds of lines, and expect that speed to be extremely expensive for the duration of next gen. Even regular broadband is pretty pricey in 2013.
dedicatedtogamers  +   362d ago | Well said
360 didn't "win" even with a year head-start, a $200 price advantage, an advantage in online, and an advantage in exclusives and superior multiplats for the first few years.

And PS3 still caught up and surpassed 360.

How is a more expensive Xbox One launching at the same time as the less-expensive PS4 magically going to beat Sony's machine?
ape007  +   362d ago
MS did the impossible with the xbox 360, it ended sony's total market domination

also more games 1st and 3rd party are sold on xbox 360 which means that the extra ps3 gap (and more) is for people who bought the ps3 it as a blu ray player

in numbers ps3 might bit a little small bit ahead of xbox 360 but the real winner is the xbox 360

i agree that a 399$ ps4 is hard to compete with but u have to understand the momentum that ms has built with the xbox 360 and the possible potential of the "all in one" approach to capture the general public

in conclusion, i say that both will sell extremely well, with ps4 having a bit of edge.

I have to...understand the momentum? No. I'm sorry. Microsoft has LOST momentum, not gained it, unless you consider nabbing the ever-fickle casual audience with Kinect to be "momentum".

Now, am I saying the Xbox brand is a dud? Absolutely not. But to think that Microsoft has some sort of all-powerful brand-loyalty and brand-recognition, especially after the last months (years, actually) is beyond optimistic.

It's blind.

And in my belief, the next gen is going to be the first console generation where there are actually LESS total sales (i.e the sum total of Wii-U, PS4, and X1 is going to be significantly less than Wii + 360 + PS3) than the previous generation. All markets are on a decline. Videogames aren't immune, and I think the industry is in for a rude awakening if they think the numbers are going to keep going up, up, up.

Additionally, I think the number of multi-console owners is going to drastically decrease.

@dedicatedtogamers "Additionally, I think the number of multi-console owners is going to drastically decrease."

Agreed. With both major formats have subscription services to get the most from the gameplay, more people will be inclined to pick one or the other, rather than have a main machine and a secondary one for its exclusives. Then it's all down to upfront price and value. That is, unless prices really crash through the floor for both hardware and subscription.

As for Nintendo, many of us have had their machines around as a secondary unit for a while, but there's just not that much in terms of software that's compelling enough for many to justify just yet and until the Wii U's future looks more solid, most won't rush to own one.

Any momentum Microsoft gained in the first 4/5th's of the X360's lifespan is now lost. That console has been having a bad time with exclusives, or any reason to have that console exclusively in the last few years.

Then with the X1 disaster, that sealed it for most people.

Xbox1 will still do well, I can say that without a doubt in my mind. But I'm more than sure that if there are any true gamers on Xbox, they've rethought their position by now and either moved to PC, Nintendo, or Sony.

Not saying any gamers on Xbox still, or planning to buy XOne aren't true gamers. Just those are the gamers content with their gaming experience, and don't want anything more, new or different.

microsoft ended playstation's dominance in console gaming. Sure, the ps3 ended up out-shipping or out-selling (or whatever) the xbox 360 by a small amount (oh yeah, and this generation isn't over yet), but they made 'xbox' a house-hold name and that's something that takes some work to do.

iceman06  +   361d ago
According to most gamers, Sony ended it's console dominance by releasing a console that was "too expensive" too late. MS was there to fill the gap and provided a great machine. They spent billions upon billions in ads, Kinect, etc. Probably a fraction of what Sony and Nintendo spent together. Yet, they are rapidly falling out of grace. It was the core gamers that brought MS to the forefront by word of mouth and peer pressure. It might be these same core gamers that turn and run to someone else...much like many did with the PS3. It's really an exercise in futile speculation at this point. Generations are not static. They are fluid and ever-changing. If MS can adapt to that idea, along with whatever plan they have, they should be fine.
Hicken  +   361d ago
If there was a company that ended PlayStation's dominance that wasn't named Sony, it'd be the current leader in units sold, Nintendo.

Kudos to MS for getting Xbox into the mind of the average person, but they're just the latest to do so. Nobody's forgotten about PlayStation, or Nintendo, and both of these names are better known for games around the world than Microsoft or Xbox.

And you're right: this gen isn't over yet. By the time it's all said and done, Sony could well sit at the top again. And while it may not be the absolute destruction of previous years, it's perfectly possible that Sony could be the first console maker to ever win three consecutive generations.

Worth noting the UK was also an exception along with the US. 360 obliterated the PS3 in the UK, and it is the second biggest gaming market in the world.

For the average consumer it comes down to $500 versus $400 with more power, however visibly apparent at launch.

The first thing you do when you get a new console isn't go home, unbox, and watch TV with hand gestures. It's play new games. PS4 wins that for significantly less money.

For me, $500 gets a next-gen console with a game and a years online or just a console with no online and no game. The choice couldn't be easier.

Here's the thing, Microsoft's Azure cloud service is most definitely an investment in the future. However, it is extremely unlikely that 5, or even 10 years from now that service will offer something more than dedicated servers and some light computational offloading. The internet speeds needed for any amount of significant processing sans lag is just too high to be reasonable. What's more, given the PS4 is more powerful in several ways, I can only assume that whatever processing the Xbox One offloads to the cloud could be computed locally for the PS4. Maybe I'm wrong about the last point, but that's my thinking.

Plus, Sony does have Gakai. Sure, it's not capable as far as I know to do exactly what Azure does; but I'm sure Sony is also investing in the online capabilities that are out there. Who knows if during this generation they will offer the same things the Xbox One does, assuming they couldn't anyways. But again, even if Sony can't I just don't believe in the magic of the cloud so I don't think it really matters.

Other than the cloud, based off what we know and think we know about both consoles, Microsoft doesn't have any other advantages - generally speaking. I'm sure both consoles will be good and have their fair share of games.

So I disagree with the author. But I'm more than willing to admit I'm not an expert.

It was Microsofts intention to begin with, to have the new Xbox always online therefore access to 'the cloud' among other things. Otherwise you would have had to buy a 360.

XBOX wins eventually?

Digital Foundry :

Did you know Microsoft has never won a generation?

Did you know the PS3 came from behind and moving in front of 360 in sales, despite being out 1 year later, higher price, and a not yet fully established online at the start?

Did you know the PS3 had a much bigger & better exclusive lineup then the 360?

So now with the PS4 coming out cheaper and most likely earlier, not to mention will have a much better game lineup then the ONE will have as the years go by, and with the other stuff I said above, how on earth can you think XBOX will win eventually?

I don't care about all the extras around (TV, social network - that i hate, but this is personal - , cameras/move controllers and whatever). I go for the games, with preferences to single player/offline multiplayer: what's better than a bunch of friends, all happy playing together without stupid devices in the hear or a crappy net (obscene services in my zone)? My favourite games have been on PS3 this gen and i hoope they continue on PS4. For now, nothing catches my attention on the XboxOne, at all. Maybe they're right, all that clouding and extra services will be great in the future and maybe that's why i could think about getting an XBOne in the next years. Or maybe not, since after releasing a console, the mother houses keep updating it with new services, functions and all of that and i guess it's going to happen the same. So we'll see, my new console (like i said in other articles, even if noone cares ;P) will be a PS4, articles and journalists can say whatever they want, i don't see another best option anyway.

According to the article, Sony has won today and microsoft failed today but they are trying to win for tomorrow. But, sony will come with a tomorrow plan again with Gaikai and more exclusives to go even better than Microsoft plans, so again Microsoft will fail tomorrow.

Yeah sure and the wars on terrorism and drugs will also be won pretty soon. These articles defending the xbox keep getting more desperate and desperate. How can you even doubt Sony after M$ was handed a golden opportunity? This time there is no opportunity, no advantage, no momentum. This is Sony's generation to lose. I just hope they don't get too comfortable and instead hope they just keep bringing the games like they've been doing since 94. Were coming up on 20 years of PlayStation and they have brought so many new successful franchises with each console, the most features, and best value for the money, whereas M$ in its 12 years has only had 3 and half franchises(Fable) that have been used and abused more than a tubesock.

Bubble up! Just for the tubesock comment lol

But your statement was also very true. M$ has never contributed anything to the games industry. They slapped together a few already existing things here and there, built upon them ever so slightly, and then released a console brand. Teenage idiots across the world then decided they needed to get their badass gun toting alien killing fix through their system, which is why the brand still exists today.
