Devs say one console is more powerful

Adrian C. (Former People Can Fly) Claims His Dev Friends Claim 50% XB1/PS4 Speed Diff (PS4, Xbox One)

Update It's unclear if Adrian is referring to actual console speed or development time when referring to the 50%. His reply to a tweet does say, "the PS4 is more powerful".

Confirmation of Whether the claim is true or not will only come with time.

You know it's like a pattern with the two consoles since they were both revealed

Xbox One negative news
PS4 positive news
...and so on

OR

Xbox One positive news
PS4 SUPER DUPER positive news that crushes/debunks Xbox news

It's hard to take a company like Microsoft seriously when they speak out about the Xbox One because as the news tells us now it's not looking good. Hell since Kinect was revealed all we have gotten from MS are lies after lies, promises that are never fulfilled or stuff which they try and cover up.

Honestly I just don't see how a gamer can stick by MS blindly and defend them when it's just an on going downward slope. I mean one or two things I understand but after everything thats happened it just makes them kind of people look stupid. Instead we get the whole "YOUR ALL FANBOYS" when really the majority of us are just normal people who have common sense and support/praise the company which are doing good...like you would with pretty much anyone

We've known this the whole time. With PS4's superior GDDR5 RAM and GPU combined, how is this not to be expected? The problem is that Xbox fanboys are very hopeful that Major Nelson, a Microsoft spokesperson, is going to be honest. Every claim that we've heard about PS4 being more powerful has come from developers that Sony doesn't even own.

He (Adrian) goes on to explain its only interms of developing time... Which makes sense as the layout of the ps4 is straight forward no fancy loops to jump through like the x1. But he stated the overall performance is the same.
He claimed nothing about the console being 50% more powerful in performance only development time. Which is a no brainer. X1 has made the same mistake as the ps3 and they have tried to get all fancy and just made things too difficult. The curse of the 3rd I guess

@mystic
He never said one version would be gimped just that the x1 would take more time to develop for compared to the ps4... But yes he did say if it were you'd never know about it. And it's in the link don't just disagree because it doesn't suit your agenda

So not only is PS4 50% more powerful, but it's also the easier to develop for platform. Playstation domination is back baby!

@ JohnnyBadfinger

He clearly stated 50% more powerful, not 50% faster development time (even though it will obviously be faster to develop for PS4 over X1 as well) lol. I can't believe you misinterpreted that or maybe you're just being ignorant.

@JohnnyBadfinger

I did read the post you're talking about but I'm going to clarify it for everyone.

http://t.co/E3wJjwWb3M

He does say in his clarification that development time is 50% faster on the PS4 but in his Twitter post he also states that the PS4 is more powerful spec wise.

https://twitter.com/adrianc...

By how much? That isn't cleared yet. The way it's stated is that the PS4 is more powerful so it gets developed on first then the platform with the weaker hardware gets worked on second to match the more powerful hardware graphically with optimizations.

"...they take extra time for super-extra optimizations on the weaker hardware to make sure things look the same as on the more powerful platform." -Adrian

The one with the weaker hardware, Xbox One, needs to be optimized to match the PS4 graphic wise. Rememeber, Adrian already stated that the PS4 is the more powerful console so development time is much faster. Basically stating that for 3rd party games, the PS4 will be the lead platform.

We still don't know by how much percentage is the PS4 more powerful but this does confirm that the PS4 is not only more powerful than the Xbox One but will be the lead platform for most 3rd party games. Remember how Xbox 360 3rd party games looked better because it was the lead console most of the time? Well, it's changed up now, the PS4 will look better and have better frame rates because the way it works...once the weaker console looks playable, the powerful console does get extra optimizations at the end depending on the extra time given. And this time, there's no complexity involved with development.

Truth...

@rewardedone

"And yet no exclusive on X360 looks like The Last of Us. Halo 4 looks great. Gears blew my mind in 2006. And still, the best looking AAA game of this generation belongs to the supposedly weaker platform." -Adrian

During that time, the weaker platform was considered the one with the more complex and difficult to develop hardware. Even with the PS3's Cell being more powerful, developers have stated that the tools to work with on the PS3 were weak and difficult to use. It took time to workaround the flaws, but as stated from both sides with the PS4 and Xbox One...Sony and Microsoft are working on making both consoles easy to develop for. But this whole article does confirm that the PS4 has better tools to work with or the console is just a beast so all the focus is on it.

It's different now. Weakness is now mostly measured with how powerful the graphics and RAM is, and the PS4 is showing that it's winning on the hardware side.

I don't trust devs when it comes to talking positive about PS4 when comparing against the X1

I trust more MSFT reps, Major Nelson regarding positive comments about X1 not for nothing all that flow of positive news about X1 comes from MSFT itself:S

Now leaving behind sarcarsm, the PS4 is more powerful, that's a fact and not just a little but also faster to develop for, PS2 devs times which means more cost effectiv dev times that can reflect in some small devs developing only for PS4 and some other releasing first on PS4 and X1 later when done

Those dev times was part of the success of PS2, many crap games indeed but also amazing gems!

Even if PS4 is inevitably the more powerful console, didn't MS ask for identical performance for multi-plat titles previously? I don't want MS to go away completely but they need to focus more on their products rather than forcing restrictions on developers just to "level" the playing field. Until then I refuse to support them as a gamer.

I dont care if he was talking to the tooth fairy and Moses I want to see this powe gap and if it deserves my attention until then its PR fluff.

On a more technical note, 50% faster in what, and where. It sounds like the same rehashed stuff over and over. Faster is a direct term, it implies something is doing something in less time than another. Like say the gpu has more cores or shaders, its has more resources but it isnt running faster.

Is he saying it does a job faster or that there is something actually running 50% faster. All that vague stuff is why I dont take these guys serious.
Eonjay  +   326d ago
He is a developer. What do you think he means? He mean that the machine has 50% more power when all the things you stated are viewed in totality.
We know the GPU is stronger, the main memory is faster. For all we know, the CPU could be faster too. There is no tangible evidence as yet that the XBox is even in parity with the PS4 let alone more powerful. This is actually bad news for the PS4 if developers want parity. It means their software will be gimped to keep Microsoft's self esteem from dropping off a cliff.

Notice how the more deluded ones have suddenly disappeared! You know who you are! Or maybe maybe they're still here, but just using the Cloak of invisibility spells.

This news has been the norm from the beginning, even to the point of retraction! When something is being compared to something else is retracted, it's usually some truth to it! Either because one party doesn't want the other party to get wind of it, Or....... One party is trying to hide information that could be potentially damaging to them!

Many would like to believe Microsoft really has some secret weapon, and they may have something that we haven't heard of yet, but I doubt it's anything to turn the tide of the battle in their favor! The best they can hope for IMO is a stalemate. The 3 os function was their ace in the hole if you ask me, but it has been seriously crippled with the always online feature.

Sony has a score to settle with Microsoft, after the loss of so many markers shares to Microsoft, which is probably one of many reasons why Sony is pushing on all fronts! This gen and next gen are pretty evenly matched as far as support on Sony part, even the Vita is showing signs of rebirth, with Sony showing not only saying it will have a integral role with supporting the PS4.

All I can say is Sony is firing on all cylinder right now, and it would be unwise to underestimate them.

And when it turns out to be false XBOX One fans will rely on the magical cloud to try and prove that the console is on par with the PS4.

Look the XBOX One isnt a bad console but it isnt as powerful as the PS4. Now im not going to make claims that there is a 50% power difference between the two but this developer seems to confirm it.

Well they are using the NDA as an excuse but that wouldnt prevent developers from using it. And if they did use it Dead Rising 3 would be running at 1080P 60FPS instead of sub 1080P at a shaky 30FPS.

I can see some extra GPU cores tucked into the board silicon off the APU, but not a full discrete GPU with the time limit they have to even market this in 2013. That is just to much of a stretch. Seems more like the part that deals with GPU MMU host-guest clients. Also in same article as the next link.
http://www.neogaf.com/forum...

An important note to discredit this I believe is that they showcased the Xbox One's SOC at hotchips with only 13.5 Gigapixels a second.
https://semiaccurate.com/as...

Also PS4 said to be based on 7850. Which has 27.5 Gigapixels a second while running at 1.78 Tflops. Embed it in the PS4 it likely is a little faster. Meaning faster images and more crisp detail. The difference between PS3/X360 was marginal with both having GPUs roughly with 4.4 Gigapixels/s so they both appeared about the same. PSVita has GPU with 4.0 Gigapixels/s. Its quite a difference this time around. :)

Omg.... No.

AMD APU Wiki read it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

"The third-generation Kaveri for high performance devices is expected in late 2013, while Kabini and Temash for low-power devices were announced in summer 2013. Semi-custom APUs based on the technology in the third-generation low-power APUs can be found in the Sony PlayStation 4 and the Microsoft Xbox One eighth generation video game consoles."

That means these are Kabini and Temash semi- custom APU's but they are based off the new technology found in the third generation Kaveri APU planned to released later on for PC's. The only difference is they still use Jaguar cores, while Kaveri uses Steamroller cores.

Have had to post this so many times already its sickening.

You drones and your stupid rumors already.. Seriously what sense would that make, they just over clocked the APU. Now you guys seriously believe that they will change the entire APU in September, two months before the Xbox One is supposed to release in November?

To prove it even further because so many of you keep talking about this its sad.. Microsoft has released images of the finished Xbox One, way before these rumors came around.

You aren't going to find any secret GPU there. All you will see is exactly what I told you is there.

The custom AMD APU.

http://www.wired.com/gadget...

Notice the Xbox One only has one huge fan which covers the APU. If there were a another graphics chip, they would need another fan or another heat sink for it.

Obviously like I said they aren't going to change the APU this late either. That is even more ridiculous to think.

When developers wouldn't have been able to even use it, test it or anything. If that was the case, it would have been in the dev kits. You don't add components later after the development process and after you have started production.

This is fantastic news for Sony and terrible news for Microsoft, if true. Most of you seem to be missing two very big and important points here:

1. DEVELOPING SPEED Vs GAME PERFORMANCE

If it's true that developers can spend 25% less time finishing their games for the PS4 (50% increase in speed = 25% decrease in time), they could either spend that extra time further optimizing and bug-fixing their games, or more realistically; start working on new projects much sooner and thus save a lot of money.

This would make the PS4 a goldmine, in every sense of the word:

- Devs can spend 25% less time and money on finishing up a game, thus..

- ..make money from their next project sooner, and..

- ..sell their games at a lower price and still make more money than they would developing for the XB1.

- Sony will sell even more consoles since more games (and even more so more *exclusive* games) most likely will be created for it than for the XB1 since it makes no sense to choose a technically weaker platform that it also takes 25% longer to finish your project on and that costs 25% more to develop for.

- Gamers will have way more games to play, most likely including a lot more *exclusives* than we previously imagined, and..

- ..could potentially enjoy even more games being added to PS+ than otherwise since a *lot* more indie developers are going to turn to the PS4 over the XB1 since funding is the most important factor to them.

2. HARDWARE Vs SOFTWARE

Larry Hyrb stated that Microsoft has some of the greatest software engineers in the world and bragged about how they created DirectX. This is the same as saying that performance is up to the work of the developer. This is true.

However, if a company like Naughty Dog can manage to spend only a few years to learn to optimize their games for the incredibly complex Cell architecture of the PS3, they sure as hell will be able to squeeze out every drop of performance out of the X86 architecture of the PS4 with ease. And since the PS4 hardware already is vastly superior to that of the XB1, that does indeed mean that at least the exclusives have an immensely higher potential in the areas of performance and graphics quality.

Microsoft may be the founders of the standard for 3D graphics today, but that doesn't mean that other developers won't be able to meet or even surpass their knowledge is optimizing it.

Why would any of those active developers/companies say one of the versions of the games they are bringing out for next gen is less powerfull then the other version...that would cost them sales at the end of the day. The truth would just get them lower sales on that version, the main objective for them as a business is too sell as many as possible on all the platforms they are developing for so I doubt they would just come out and say "Yeah this version of the game we are making is not as good as this version"

Clarence  +   326d ago
Your crazy and not smart. All of these developers work for both companies. They want to keep the money train coming in. They will not offend either company by stating which console is more powerful. (PS4)

This just like the statement AMD made about which console had the advantage.(PS4) They retracted the statement because they want to continue getting M$ business.

Now you won't see a difference in multiplates because they don't want upset a certain company (M$)

Okay. You're crazy.

1st link: Kojima himself says NOTHING about the power. It's implied from the article, but not actually said.

2nd link: Carmack doesn't say anything about power, again. And he even admitted he hadn't done any "rigorous benchmarking."

3rd link: Pretty irrelevant, given it says nothing about power differences between the consoles.

4th link: Again, NOTHING is said about the difference in the power of the two consoles. And that they say the XB1 will be similar to the PS4 version is probably due more to the engine being scalable than anything else.

A bunch of links that didn't prove ANYTHING. Good job!

@Foxtrot
3RD party would lose sells if they say one machine is more powerful.
1st party devs are biased to their own platform.
I guess those philosophies cancel each other out and makes this whole thing irrelevant.

The reason I linked those big games is because they wouldn't lose sells based off of that sentiment. Kojima especially.

@Kingthrash
Just offering a counter argument....one dev says this and another says that. All in all....they don't imply the PS4 is 30,40,50% more powerful....that's far from minimal.

@Enemy
Again...complain about 3rd party devs being paid and neutral...but 1st party would of course be biased and can be less trusted since they have absolutely no access to the other machine at this point.

@MRMagoo123
I claim to be neutral because when it comes down to it, I support both with money. I will eventually buy a PS4. Couldn't care less how I come off in a forum. This back and forth doesn't sway how I game in real life.

"3RD party would lose sells if they say one machine is more powerful."

But those links you provided are all third party companies, so they would loose sales if they spoke about how one version of a game they've made is inferior to another.

Besides the guy speaking here is from People Can Fly who's owners are Epic Games, the company responsible for Gears of War an Xbox 360 exclusive. They've done nothing but praise MS over the years, hell the last game People Can Fly made was Gears of War Judgement. Both companies have given MS a lot of support over the years.

OrangePowerz  +   326d ago
As a big company that would develop for both consoles you would never ever go out and say one is stronger because you would just piss off one of the companies that could mean loosing out on possible deals in the future. Just look at Gabe, as long as Valve had only 360 games he was saying that the PS3 architecture isn`t good, but once they made games for both platforms they where both good consoles. If Ubisoft says that one is stronger you can be sure that either Sony or MS would send them a friendly mail and ask them what the hell is going on that they make those statements in public.

"Those 50% claims haven't come from 1st party developers though."

"Multiplatform developers that get paid to be neutral. Good job with your argument, WB."

Both are from quotes from you.

So I don't get it....when they say it's a big difference then it's a fact but when it's stated by other devs it's minimal it's because they can't strain the relationship between Sony and Micro.

Basically it's this...if it's a big enough difference stated by some 3rd party devs and Sony to enable chest thumping then it's golden, bulletproof info. Cannot be refuted and deal with it.

When it's stated it isn't much of a difference at all by other devs and Micro then it's damage control and wrong....face it it's inferior etc etc.

Ok....got it.

This guy doesn't work for Sony, WB. In fact, go ahead and find one link where a 1st party Sony developer claims 50% advantage favoring PS4. All the claims have come strictly from hardware comparisons. Everything is right there, written, on paper. It's evidence.

If Microsoft wasn't worried, why would they suddenly feel the need to clock up CPU/GPU? Unfortunately, it's too late to match PS4's specs. Microsoft underestimated Sony's plan and it backfired. This'll teach'em not to next time. The end.

I'll bet you these guys will call out conspiracy in the media when PS4 games get good reviews and XB1 games get bad ones. I'll bet you they'll call conspiracy when more devs come out and prove the PS4's technical superiority.

The delusion is in place, that to them Sony cannot have a much more powerful system. It's honestly, too much for them to handle after they tried so hard like champions to prove that the 360 was more powerful than the PS3 due to "multiplats", that they aren't letting this one go. But they will... eventually.

Finally! I have been saying this since the DGPU rumor broke, if the X1 had a duel GPU, there is no way it would cost £430, you are looking around £550 - £600 mark.

Also, I would have thought that a DGPU would have more teraflops than 1.31 that MS has stated in all there tech announcements.

If the X1 had a significant power advantage compared to PS4, dont you think MS would be glouting and shouting more about it.

Dan_scruggs  +   327d ago
Every time I see one of these articles that obsesses over the power of the PS4 I am reminded that the Wii absolutely killed the PS3 and 360 is sales. Power doesn't matter. Innovation does. If the PS4 has that then Sony will win. But right now I have no reason to believe that will be the case.
ABeastNamedTariq  +   327d ago
What's innovative to you, if I may ask?
AceBlazer13  +   327d ago
Kinect and paywalls probably.
Dan_scruggs  +   326d ago
Motion controls on the Wii was highly innovative. It opened up new game play possibilities and paid off huge in the end. PlayStation Move was not innovative and therefor was quickly forgotten. I remember the ads that touted "This Changes Everything". No Nintendo did that years earlier. But Sony has a very short memory. The dual screen and touch controls on the DS was wildly different when it first appeared. That creativity has spurned on to Nintendo dominating the handheld landscape even tho it is a far inferior piece of tech compared to the Vita. But power doesn't matter. Creativity does. I even understand the reason Microsoft is forcing the Kinect upon everyone with the XboxOne. The Kinect has sold millions and it barely even worked. But it was new and different. Did you know that Kinect Adventures sold 20 million copies. That is more than any PS exclusive... Ever. Wii Sports Resort sold 31 million. Sometimes what is good or fun is in the eye of the beholder and games like those that are completely unique to themselves are the one that truly excel. And simply replacing a button with touch pad with extremely limited usefulness is not what I consider and innovation. If people believe that the usefulness of that feature on the PS4 controller will go beyond "swipe to activate" and "tap to open" is fooling themselves. To me Sony's greatest enemy is its fear of taking risks with their tech. Their stance always seems to be "make it more powerful and that'll be good enough". But it didn't work with the PS3 and I doubt it'll work with the PS4.
AceofStaves  +   326d ago

kane_1371  +   326d ago
I barely ever leave a comment in N4G but I have to answer you ignorance.

first of all, yes I am a Sony fanboy, infact screw Playstation, I worship Sony.

Your comment about risks and innovation is stupid.

The least innovative company out there might very well be Nintendo.

So, lets get to it then.

Sony is probably the only company that has taken huge risks all together, gaming or not.

Sony Playstation is a prodyct of Nintendo's fear of the innovation, it not only was innovative but powerful and easy to program a game for.

So while Nintendo coward out og the deal Sony made the innovation, and built the first stand alone console to truely use the power of Compact Disks.
You can argue that there were others before, but none even could last 1 month in the market.

Dual Shock and Dual Analogue controllers which set the standard for the gaming the first company to actually bring these new babies to gaming was Sony, they also included Dual Shock, yet again somethingthat only Nintendo seemed to not understand and always had to add after the release of the console.

DVD

Honestly, the company responsible for the DVD to become the main platform for movies in the begining of the 21st century was and is SONY, you can argue and argue but it is so, again a new platform and a new step forward in gaming.
By this time Microsoft entered the gaming industry with Xbox and presented Live, innovative for consoles and even PCs no question there.

Oh, shocker, microsoft used both DVD and Dual Analogue in the console.

We move forward to 2006, PS3, SixAxis, not the best move but a risk taken, you think not?

Ok, well, what about Cell? Sony with PS2 felt how it is to be behind in the technology against another console so they decided to bring a stronger console to the market and not let that happen again.
Cell, something that Sony hopped for to be the next big thing but didn't happen, still, innovation in gaming and a big risk it was the reason for Sony's success in the visual division of games and proved to be strong but not worth it and they changed it for PS4.

What about Blu ray?
Again a new platform, again a risk taken while Xbox and Nintendo Coward out of it with DVD, you could say that it is because the fact that they had to pay royalities to SONY but hey so did they with DVD.

Hey i forgot about motion gaming, Playstation Eye says hello to all of you guys that talk about motion gaming.

Get this, lets forget the specs and talk about games.

Innovation in games:

I dare you to say Nintendo has innovation in itsd game divisions, same goes for Xbox.

what company would let That Game Company release Flower on its system?

What company would introduce new ips all the time?

What company would allow LBP on its system? Mind you, mm did go to other publishers too.

You look at Nintendo, all you see is Zelda, Mario, Pokemon.

You look at Xbox and it is Halo, Forza, Halo.

Sony is next to PC when it comes to new ips, there is no console manufacturer right now that is more innovative than Sony is.

As for Ryse, the new consoles use PC architecture and Crytek usually focuses on PC games and they would be more familiar with that kind of architecture.

The 360 was closer to PC architecture compared to the PS3 that was far away from PC architecture and the MS dev teams should be more familiar with that kind of hardware right now while the Sony devs still need to learn more things because they can get more out of it.

At last! We get the low down from an actual developer. And as developers share their thoughts we know more about the differences between XB1 & PS4.

Great article with some very good insights. So multi-platform games will look the same to start with. They use super PCs to start with then scale things down to fit their target systems.

Just one question: If (as seems probable) the PS4 does prove 30-50% faster then how long before gamers demand that developers produce better multi-platform games for the PS4? Surely they will have to admit they are not making the most of the PS4 and lower the prices for games on PS4. Very interesting...

It's the beginning of the generation. Hell, the generation didn't even start (unless you count Wii U. I technically do, but that's besides the point)!

Also, dat in-engine The Order trailer.

EDIT:

@creep (below)

"...there still is no title on the PS3 that show the immense difference in power Sony claimed to have."

The Last of Us. God of War 3/Ascension. Uncharted 2/3. Heavy Rain! Beyond, which, to me, looks even better than TLOU (both still look fantastic). There's your power difference. You gotta be kidding me.

Especially GOW. It has friggin amazing graphics that more than hold up to today. At 60 frames. The scope is amazing.

EDIT 2 (gotta save a bubble):

@ExCest

TLOU's cutscenes were in-engine. Yeah, they looked a bit better because they're pre-rendered and have better/different physics, film grain, and a little more detail. But there was basically a small amount of disparity between the game and its cutscenes. I don't thin you can call it CGI, but I get what you're saying, sort of. If TLOU is anything to go by, The Order is still going to look nothing short of absolutely amazing.

True, true. I consider Wii U next gen as well.

But in-engine trailers mean nothing. BF3 had in-engine cutscenes and even the highest-end enthusiast-class PC won't run the game looking like that because the engine isn't designed to pump that amount of detail in-game.

In-engine just shows you the power of the engine, not the console. You might as well just call it CGI.

Even though, nice looking trailer.

I don't care when if it's the beginning of the generation or the end, if they cant show me through games that it is more powerful, then all this talk is completely irreverent.

It was the same thing as last gen, of the PS3 is so much more powerful than the 360 because of the cell, and now that this generation is over, realistically and technically, there still is no title on the PS3 that show the immense difference in power Sony claimed to have.

No "wait until" game. He's just acting like the beginning of the generation games should look like the end of the generation games. To me, at least.

"Also, none of the games you mentioned look better then Halo 4, Gears or Forza, its all around the same."

The denial is strong in you man.

Halo 4 looks bright and amazing, yes. But looking better than Beyond or TLOU? I beg to differ.

Gears looks fine too. And it's fun (I love it). But looking better than God of War: Ascension? I beg to differ.

Forza? Beautiful. I don't think you can compare a racing game to anything else other than another racer. GT5 and 6, especially 6, in my opinion, look better than Forza 4 (the premium cars in regards to GT5).

I've said it before, I'll say it again. TLOU and Beyond show the power difference. I see no match to Beyond on current gen (besides TLOU at an extremely close second).

Also. I love how you're first trying to reject the statements of the article, then suddenly switch to "my PC is stronger than both next gen consoles, whatever" (I'm paraphrasing), as if you haven't been a MS fanboy and are suddenly uncaring about the statements made.

Denial.

Well, considering Killzone: Shadow Fall is graphically superior to every Xbox One game shown so far, it's safe to say you have no idea what you're talking about. I'd go as far as to say it's leagues beyond anything on Xbox One. Read up on the tech if you want to be left with tears streaming down your face.

Forza? Last gen experience with weird, overdone, pre-baked cartoony lighting, low res textures, static background, reflections on mirrors vanishing, etc. All that cheating to achieve 60fps and it still has pop ups.
Ryse? Very, very bland. Not even recognized for anything other than QTEs and glitches at this point.
Dead Rising? Having a bunch brain-dead zombies on screen doesn't make you next gen, especially when your frame rate is taking a hit.

I'm really curious what it is that you guys are bragging about when none of your games compare to what we've seen from Sony so far.

Stay tuned for TGS as well.

After this news, don't be surprised if that is the quality we're going to see. inFamous: Second Son already looks and performs far better than every Xbox One exclusive, especially considering it's open-world.

What you said means absolutely nothing. In a conversation about graphical capabilities the language a game is presented in is irrelevant. It shows what the system is capable of no matter what language. The game looks incredible.

P.S. Yes Foxgod is quite delusional.

I'm still surprised people are able to argue against what Sony's shown. It's like they're in the truest form of denial. I'm lost for words how they can just not be impressed by this stuff.

Also, "Deep down is confirmed to be a japan only rpg game"

When and where was this "confirmed"? We first saw the game at the initial Sony reveal and it was completely in ENGLISH, no subtitles whatsoever. Talk about extreme denial, now we've got guys claiming great looking games won't be localized from Japan. LMMFAO

Killzone Shadow Fall, Infamous Second Sun, Driveclub and Planetside 2 show off the power of the ps4.

@Creepjack so aren't all multiplatform games running on PS4 like watch dogs and AC4 im pretty sure that shows that its easy to develop for because i have yet to see the xbox versions of those games.
@fox omg ur the most die hard xbot i've ever seen damn u said halo 4 like it was graphic phenomenon when damn sure wasn't i mean seriously dude uncharted two blows that out the water if u wanna bring up graphics.

If you haven't looked at Killzone: Shadow Fall's announcement gameplay, or any gameplay since, you're seriously not being objective. I mean am I the only guy who has every console each generation? AM I the only one who has a PC with hdmi out hooked to his TV? Sure 360 was easy to develop for, has good exclusives and some multi-platforms look a hare better on 360. 1st party games on both look awesome, I have to say though The Last of Us was the most impressive game I've played this generation. I loved Halo Reach and only played Mass Effect on 360, but that game blew them out of the water. Others have said this and I'll say it again for the cheap seats: This generation is just starting, Wii U hasn't done great, probably by forcing many of it's games to be played on an uncomfortable game pad. It's underpowered, lacks dev support and generally is known as a kids console. This November we all get the chance to decide which console we're getting first. I've watched every press conference live, then via replay at the highest resolution on my 55" LED TV so I can see and understand what differences there are now. Best looking game I've seen was Killzone: Shadow Fall, with everything else being a mixed bag. Does Forza look good? Yeah, always has. Does Ryse look good? Looks like something we could see on 360 or PS3 personally. I could argue all day about what I thought I saw, with guys who just want to fight because they're angry. Hell I get it, you've been lied to, promised this new gaming future, had the story change, had Sony fanboys criticize your allegiance and kick you while you're down. I'm in the military and I work with a diverse group of gamers, who all agree Sony has won the PR war here for sure. out of 20 people, 18 are getting the PS4. I asked them why, and there response was simple: Sony hasn't changed their story. Am I getting the Xbox One? Hell yeah, just not until I see some consistency from them. Rant over...

PS4 is more powerful on paper, there is no doubt in that. Microsoft are in denial for saying it doesn't matter but it will in 2-3 years time when games start showing a massive difference in fidelity and graphics. It's just a matter of time. Same thing happened with PS3 and PS3 games at the end of its cycle still look amazing.

Devs say a lot of things the xb1 will do me fine.
Megaton  +   327d ago
Dunno why anyone would have thought otherwise just because Major Switchflip spewed a bit more PR. This is all measurable hardware. We're not talking about blast processing, teh cell, or the power of the cloud. Hardware with hard numbers showing the PS4 is significantly stronger. All the Microsoft spin the world can't erase those facts.
Foxgod  +   326d ago
Actually, my pc is significantly stronger then the ps4 and x1.
The difference between the x1 and ps4 is futile at best.

When it comes to consoles, the only "more" value you can get, come from playing exclusives, as graphically the differences will hardly be noticeable.
Megaton  +   326d ago
Well it's good to hear Xbox fans say that exclusive games matter again. Been years since that has happened. I have a feeling the sentiment will fade once Sony starts delivering the best console lineup year after year as they did with the PS3.

Doesn't it feel good to at least pretend to care about games, though? Don't be so quick to abandon it this time around.
True_Samurai  +   326d ago
This doesn't make me care of which console is more powerful does this make me a non-true gamer? :-(

Lack of punctuation makes you a non-true gamer.

Seriously, though, we know you don't care about which is more powerful because it's the PS4 that's more powerful. Had it been the XB1 instead, you'd be singing a different tune.
True_Samurai  +   326d ago
Didn't realize this was a grammar site lol but of course I would just for the fun of it. :-) but that shouldn't matter cause we're fellow gamer friends right?
YNWA96  +   326d ago
That means I get 50 % better games!

True Ninja, it only makes you 50% less gamer. Only those who play Sony consoles and nothing else ever, can call themselves purestock gamers. Video games even did not exist before PS1.

Its funny how its more powerful. Microsoft pr people are lying to everyone. Smh. Ps4 it is man. Not because its powerful but because its cheaper, better, more variety of first party games and people at sony seem so transparent

Foxgod  +   326d ago
It wont surprise me if the X1 version looks better, Dice their engine is highly optimized for Direct-X.
Not so much for OpenGL like library's.
KonsoruMasuta  +   326d ago
*Yawn* I love the PS4 and I'm getting it day one but let's stop with the spec war articles. Graphics don't make the game. It's mostly about the gameplay. Let's compare games instead.

If I thought graphics was the only thing needed to make a good game I would game on my PC more often.
fghtrer3fb5erg  +   326d ago
No offence but if you dont care about graphics why you buying a ps4 then? :P

Not to mention Sony gets more JRPGS than MS.

This is just stupid frankly!People with brains already know for sometime that the PS4 is more powerfull all around than the X1.!!If the X1 was actually more powerfull Microsoft will never would had made overclocks to the Gpu AND Cpu to try to match the PS4.Among other moves!

im sure there will be a huge difference,considering the ps3 was much more powerful than the 360 and there was to no difference,but the xb1 and ps4 are almost exactly a like,in all studies the ps4 would only get more fps which is not a big deal at all,idk why everyone is expecting a huge difference and on top of that the xb1 games look much better out the gate,and graphics never mattered anyways,you could not pay m to choose psn over xbox live,facts are facts.

Alright with this said.. does this draw out the whole speculation that Xbox One has a dGPU? (I know that the whole dGPU speculation is a far fetched rumor, just feel like asking though)
FungalPsychosis  +   326d ago
Yeah it pretty much debunks it unless devs aren't even aware of a dGPU (which I seriously doubt).
JuniorCE  +   326d ago
Microsoft would've said it by now if it was true....

This is not happening,no dGPU for X1.
