PS4 is that best.
It's for the gamers.

ZHZ901440d ago

Not to mention PS4TW!
It has most of adventeges that real gamers need.

xHeavYx1440d ago

The PS4 was built with developers input, and its main focus is games instead of gimmicks, no doubt Playsation will win at the end

Meh! This is getting old.

The PS4 is more powerful. Both are a big leap in technology. Both are great consoles. Just play the games.

pffft the headline doesnt even match the content in the article, actually the dev comments are more neutral.

lol, cutting my wrists OK seems like you care awww how sweet. Whats funny is even in an article trying to say that so many devs have said ps4 is more powerful none were committed to it in terms of real world performance. Also these are all OLD qoutes BEFORE micro tweak upgraded GPU and CPU specs. Yep all these comments were discussed awhile ago on n4g. Why no comments from devs since upgrades?

1st Jonathan Blow says he was "told" that there was a extreme performance difference.= The guy hates micro and did not name one solid reference hardly proof.

All the others (John Carmack, a unnamed dev and Avalanche Studio devs/Just Cause) didnt say anything definitive they said raw specs on paper but even further elaborated that performance was very close, even mentioning how great X1 games look in comparison.

Finally Adrian Chmielarz is on record saying his 50% speed comments were related to development time, which he said will of course be improved upon now that micro is done with hardware and have great dev tools.

-Again nowhere have I said in my history of comments or in this comment that X1 is more powerful than ps4, what I've said is I doubt that there will be a significant performance difference based on the specs and X1's eSRAM and now with recent upgrades Im sure of it, I stand by those statements and none of the devs who have DEVELOPED GAMES FOR BOTH have said theres is a significant performance difference in fact the few on record like Carmack and Just Cause devs have actually said they are "very close" or "there are many factors besides raw specs".= I'm sure some will hit disagree but none of the above things I highlighted from devs is my opinion its FACTS.

So hmmm should I believe an industry vet like Carmack or a bunch of fanboys?

Wow....... he really is cutting his wrist.......

You know, I was avoiding reading this article because I suspected that it may be 'cleverly' edited. But I just clicked and read them all and I have to agree with you.

Very professional comments, and very unbiased opinions. I hope that some of this attitude could rub off on more people, its a much nicer way of continuing the never ending gaming debates that we all know and love (or hate).

mewhy321440d ago

Cant dispute the hard facts. The PS4 is the most powerful console ever conceived period. I don't know why people get so upset over that? It's more powerful than the bone but if you still want the bone then fine get one. Just do it knowing that micro$oft is charging you 100.00 more for inferior hardware. But hey, if you're loyal to micro$oft and that fact doesn't matter because you love Halo or something then by all means get the bone.

@madden. and then 7 days later...god takes a break to play the xb1.


Magicite1440d ago

PS4 will be PS2 V2 in terms of success.

QuickdrawMcgraw1440d ago

Joke you are no different then anyone else.You will believe whoever talks up your console of choice.

JokesOnYou1440d ago (Edited 1440d ago )

Quickdraw, NO actually I don't, for example if I did I would be touting the cloud as gaming heaven and the reason X1 is more powerful but Im not. Did you see my comments in reference to the 12gb of ram?, How about the dggpu rumors? lol never believe any of it for a second, WHY because it sounded unreasonable/like wishful thinking and check my history thats what I said then. I'm also careful not to believe the overhype of ANY KIND from either side but at the same time I'm not foolish enough to believe micro is investing tons of money in the cloud if it was useless AND now sony has even done the "me too" type comments in regards to the cloud. So go ahead label me, call me out whatever just call me consistent because for me it's always about reasonable expectations NOT pure belief in a company.

I learned my lesson that most PR is half truths mixed with a lil bit of wishful thinking and a whole lot of "depends on the implementation" in other words nobodys outright lying but high ambitions sometimes just aren't acheivsble..YET. The original Kinect, the cell, bluray are all good examples of this. Some folks always see evil intentions but I really do believe those engineers working tirelessly to bring us this tech to market really have the best intentions and if its yoir "baby" you've work so hard on sometimes for years of course those "theoretical specs", "potential/promises" , "ideas/predictions" become very real to you, unfortunately despite your efforts all that potential may not bear fruit. Maybe next time, but who says the suits are going to continue to fund it?..or maybe it was always just a few engineers/devs/creative directors pipe dream.= Thats why I wait, thats why I TRY not spew misinformation.

I can tell you however X1 does have the games me, my friends, and my family like the most and I won't lose 1min of sleep because ps4 is more powerful because I'll still enjoy my games. Now with that said and ps4 somehow is pulling off games that are simply not possible on X1 then of course I'll be jealous frankly I'm positive that won't happen but regardless its not like if you've ever read my comments that I wont be getting a ps4 at some time or another anyway.

pixelsword1439d ago (Edited 1439d ago )

"So hmmm should I believe an industry vet like Carmack or a bunch of fanboys?"

I appreciate Carmack's contribution to the gaming world, but Carmack isn't the best one for an overall stable comment concerning consoles, since early one he said was against the PS3 before he was for it latter in the console cycle (or am I thinking of Gabe? I think they both did that, though).

He can turn a PC and some code into a masterpiece, and no one can debate that.

Well I LOVE playstation but I tried to keep me critical thinking every time console are compared by dev. Why?

Well if :

They develop exclusively on ps4 they will say ps4 is the best
They develop exclusively on Xbox they will say Xbox is the best

They develop for both... Well they have no interest of choosing one console over the other one and if they do I assume they have personal reason not because of the technology but because of rights, fees, etc which doesn't really affect the player.

NewMonday1440d ago

never came across any developer comment that states the XB1 is more powerful in any way in comparison to the PS4.

cruncher_201440d ago

I didn't say more powerful I said best... best could mean more powerfull but best could also imply : easier to develop on, easier to publish, the partnership is incredible..., implementation with their accessories open tons of possibility, exclusivity, the company approach, online support, etc...

And if you NEVER came across developers... well here an exemple : TURN 10 (forza 5 dev) said that Xbox cloud allowed them to boost AI at 600% which was not possible before...

imt5581440d ago

The multiplatform developers and indie will say that PS4 is better.

vigilante_man1440d ago

We now know PS4 has a bit more under the hood. We do not fully know just how much yet.

This is just a re-hash article. No news here..

cruncher_201440d ago

The multiplatform developers and indie will say that PS4 is better.

That is my f****g point....

Ah... useless ... I like the ps3 and will get a ps4 but people here are just fanboy that don't want any debate...

some Indies will say ps4 is best because sony facilitate the business side but at the end that doesn't really change the experience for the player... multiplatform developers have financial interest when they define "best" but at the end both console will have a similar game...

If you prefer me saying that it is God that put ps4 and ALL indies dev and ALL multi dev prefer ps4 that's your opinion... I prefer Sony but I played multi on different console and don't see much difference and the same thing will happen for ps4 and xboxOne...

NewMonday1440d ago

I said "in comparison to the PS4"

someone in NeoGaf put it beast:

"Originally Posted by IN&OUT

Is X1 a powerful console? Yes, it is.

Is X1 more powerful than PS4? HELL NO

Why X1 is weaker than PS4?

MS designed X1 to be perfectly balanced and powerful according to THEIR vision.

It's just happen to be that Sony was more ambitious (regarding power) and they were able to outdo MS efforts in this area"

So with an obvious and clear advantage, it shouldn't take long to see the results. The advantage will be clear day one.

gapecanpie1440d ago (Edited 1440d ago )

Both systems are a joke... Its 2013 and yet battlefield is 720p with medium graphics settings, that's just pathetic.

You FANBOYS remind me of clown's. The only thing these systems got going for them are their exclusive games which is a matter of personal taste.

Every time both sides bring up specs it just make the lot of you look dumb.

devwan1440d ago

If BF4 is running poorly that's a problem for the devs, not a problem of the hardware. Both Microsoft and Sony have shown much more impressive examples of games than what you suggest.

Whatever, you can't expect maximum performance day one on consoles, that's not how it works.

mediate-this1440d ago

Lol... P.C wont matter till titanfall comes out on xbone. Then p.c will get all the praise. When they are done with titanfall it will be back to harping the p.c and the xbone.

Hicken1440d ago

When you put an apostrophe in the plural form of "clowns," I think that does more to damage the opinion of YOUR intelligence than anyone else's.

Please, change your name. You're an embarrassment to Georgians, pecans, and pies.

clearelite1440d ago (Edited 1440d ago )

Yet Killzone Shadow fall Multiplay will run at 1080p 60 FPS and Planetside 2 will rival high end PC gameplay. Therefore any Battlefield issue is most likely an optimization issue at this point.

I do think people could probably stop comparing specs so much and focus more overall game quality. All of the next gen hardware is more than powerful enough for devs to create AMAZING games.

gapecanpie1438d ago (Edited 1438d ago )

Dude are you tracking my every post, do you not have a life outside of n4g? Also for your information my phone has a f**ked up auto correct and I didn't expect any internet grammar Nazi to cry over something so little.

Oh and lmao at your Georgia comment as Georgia has some of the lowest test scores in the country, so Georgia do just fine in making itself look bad.

P.S. For Gods sakes get a life and stop tracking me, there is a whole big world beyond your computer. Oh and sorry I replied so late but I actually have a life

What is the developers name or company that's running their game 1080p "native" @60fps? Also, what next gen console is said game or 1080p "native" 60fps games running on?

XBOX ONE: Forza 5.

Does the PS4 have any?

See, talk is cheap, if the console is most powerful, show it, and stop running your mouth!

devwan1440d ago (Edited 1440d ago )

Calm down otherZinc, no need for shouty ;-)

"1080P" can mean all kinds of things. "1080P native" means 1920x1080. I'm not sure FMS5 is running at that resolution, but we will find out in time.

There are a number of ways to approach screen resolution and refresh vs content detail and there are simple ways to achieve [email protected] gameplay, basically by keeping things on the simple side, less detail, less post processing, cutting corners and clever tricks that give the appearance of doing more than you are for example with lighting - all good stuff if done wisely as the gamer probably never really notices, but not always possible if you're looking to offer a particular effect (in the instance of lighting that might be day-night cycles).

There's no value in shouting [email protected] at people as proof of anything one way or the other. Unless it's the same game running side-by-side on different platforms then at least there's a debate to be had.

Magicite1440d ago

forza 5 is 1080P/60FPS with outdated effects/backgrounds. On PS4 it might be running at 100 FPS then.
