Penello: Microsoft will talk about Xbox One's architecture "very soon"

Examiner: "While Sony has repeatedly shown of portions of the PlayStation 4's dashboard and architecture, Microsoft has refrained from doing so. However, according to Albert Penello, Senior Director of Product Management, that will soon change." (Microsoft, Xbox One)

its almost here ms the time is now to show everything you have got for the console, you can hold on to your games and slowly release them not the consoles
Gamingcapacity  +   800d ago
It will be interesting what they have since Major Nelson said he can't wait for the truth to come out about specs.

Hopefully he wasn't getting excited over something small similar to "It comes with batteries" tweet.
iamnsuperman  +   800d ago
Like the time when he hyped the PAX event and it turned out to be two playable demos. Nelson needs to be careful to not turn into Geoff Keighley

OT: I really doubt we are going to get any surprises with the architecture but still good to know

Oh yeah!

Love these presentations.

I'm just wondering, why haven't Sony showed us anything. They've been so vague aside from their specs.
JokesOnYou  +   800d ago
Nah, I think micro has said and shown plenty in regards to specs and the dashboard=the reveal, E3, Hot chips, IGN fan Q&A, Penello on neogaf, and tons of responses to the media about how current policies work.

Spec this spec that.
just give up and face it.

xbone is weaker and more expensive than ps4.
it's a bad combination
scott182  +   800d ago
The thing I don't understand is why major Nelson got all worked up about Sony claiming it was the most powerful console. Sony said it, and of course they would say it, they want to sell their machine. They never claimed a power difference in percentage... If Major xbone wants to prove anything to someone he should be proving it to the devs! They are the ones that claimed a 30-50% difference in power. They are the ones who work with the machines and see the potential first hand, so prove it to them.

Honestly, I just want the full spec of both consoles out in the open once and for all. This assuming and guessing is getting a little annoying.

There is no smoke without fire, and the smoke says PS4 is up to 50% more powerful, now give us the facts (MS and Sony)(and we'll figure it out ourselves.

Come one?! Stop the BS.

You and I know very well who has been more transparent with their architecture.

No one sets a Hot Chips presentation if you don't have anything to show, especially in this case the most obvious.

If there was anything unique during those presentations, don't you think Sony would have been along side AMD and Microsoft at Hot Chips showcasing the new APUs (HSA designs)?

@shoddy The combination of Kinect and Xbox One makes it more expensive than the PS4. I bet the console wouldn't be more expensive than the PS4 if it was sold without Kinect.

I thought Sony we're open about their specs from the beginning. Cerny spoke a lot about the specs and did numerous presentations.

Either way the XBO will be a capable machine. It will have support for great games so in the end it really doesn't matter too much if games look a little bit lesser on it... unless you're a console-playing graphics-whore.

@Power - Devs say it is 50% more powerful, that's the smoke. MS has still not released the full specs, Sony hasn't released much at all.
JokesOnYou  +   799d ago
gaffyh, What devs? Who exactly? you happen to have a link with names? If so please provide ANY direct quote from a dev who is currently working on a X1/ps4 title that has said ps4 is 50% more powerful.

Here's a couple examples that dont seem to think so:

“It’s almost amazing how close they are in capabilities, how common they are,” Carmack said. “And that the capabilities that they give are essentially the same.” -John Carmack

“The specs on paper would favour the PS4 over the Xbox One in terms of raw power, but there are many other factors involved so we’ll just have to wait and see a bit longer before making that judgment.” - Avalanche’s chief technical officer Linus Blomberg

gaffyh  +   799d ago
@JOY - Carmack said they are similar in terms of architecture, which they are. Your second quote proves what I said is true, PS4 is more powerful in terms of raw power. That's the whole argument. Games can be good regardless of power.

It still amazes me that people can't see that, it's not about optimization or the games. The argument is about the power. You have four or five Devs that have said PS4 is up to 50% powerful, and many others that have hinted at it, yet people seem to think these people are liars.

Anyone with an ounce of sense would at least wonder why the Devs are saying that? Maybe because it's true? Oh no, that would make too much sense

falviousuk  +   799d ago
Ill answer, one of those devs is Mr Blow, who said that the xbox one is not as fast, but then again he hates MS with a passion which was seen by his (innacurate) tweets during E3.

But the sony fanboys cling to it with a passion that only they know in their special sony fanboy world.

Both consoles will have amazing games. And both consoles will have poor games. Gaming is about gameplay not who has the biggest silicon hard on
P0werVR  +   799d ago

"Devs say it is 50% more powerful, that's the smoke. MS has still not released the full specs, Sony hasn't released much at all."

Of course it's the smoke, and why you been "fogged" by that tid bit of info. And for you to go out your way and say it's NOT ABOUT optimization shows you know NOTHING.

Raw components mean nothing if you can't integrate them together and optimize it. That is why we are moving into an era of high optimizations and that is a great thing.

Wonder why Sony has been so vague on their design? Because of x86, equals ONLY 3.5 gigs for gaming....j/k!


Also, that is about the only notices of their design along with a very few that we've come across compared to Microsoft with it's architectural panel and Hot Chips presentations.

Sm00thNinja  +   800d ago
At this point I expect no suprised with the architecture. The PS4 is obviously the more powerful console. By how much is the question. Microsofts initial lineup is stronger IMO so following those up with more strong exclusives is key. Microsoft is more likely to see a launch hangover at this point than Sony. Lots of PS4 announced exclusives a few Xbone.
P0werVR  +   800d ago
Aside from specs since when, what have they really show us?! I guarantee you can't come up with anything.

Beside hUMA, which doesn't make sense since it hasn't been released yet, but either way both consoles use HSA naturally. I have not come across anything as of yet.

Which is very suspicious.
Gozer  +   800d ago
Its not obvious at all. Ryse and Forza 5 looks better than anything shown for ps4. If the ps4 is indeed more capable, they have yet to prove it. And if the ps4 is indeed more powerful, it certainly isn't 50% more powerful.

@ Gozer

You just exposed the truth using two video links.

You didn't even bother explaining why you believe Ryse is better looking but video footage says it all. Let's post some more video shall we?

KZ:SF - a game with more dynamic gameplay, hugely impressive particle and elemental effects, impressive draw distances, smooth animatiions, fluid and rapid gameplay, 1080/30fps going 60fps, all whilst still being in control of the game (unlike Ryse) . So you can say you believe Ryse is better looking, but it will never make it so.

And you're trying to tell me one game looks cartoony over the other? Look no further than Forza 5: The game looks beautiful, but it still cartoony to the power of cartoony. I'm half expecting that car to stop and a Pixar character to step out. Compare that to a realistic looking racer like this with actual dynamic non-baked lighting http://gamefont.files.wordp...

There is NOTHING obvious except the wishful thinking...

Ps4 has advantages and disadvantages.. Gddr5 is great for GPU but bad for CPU tasks for example..

People that somehow think a slightly better gpu always forget the 360 had a more powerful gpu... It didnt make ps3 games look worse but it somehow means it will make thr x1 worse off..

"Gddr5 is great for GPU but bad for CPU tasks for example.. "

Well then tell that to AMD (you know the obvious idiots that made the APU's for these systems) cuz they recommend that you couple your APU with GDDR5 for a lot better performance.

what disadvantages ps4 have ?!
it have nothing but advantages over xbox1

and lol at the "Slightly" better GPU
p4 GPU being 40-50% more powerful than xbox gpu is not "Slightly"...there is HUGE gap here

also this is far from being the same as xbox360/ps3 GPUs because both consoles GPUs were very close in power ...very close

i really don't know how it is possible to compare this gen with next gen when they share nothing in commen
ps3 had little weaker gpu and much powerful cpu and the same amount of ram as xbox360 but was split and at first was hard to work with

but this time ps4 have much stronger gpu and the same cpu with better/faster ram and use more for games as well and as easy to work with as xbox1 or even more

like i said this gen share nothing with next gen

There has been too many clues left around so I can guarantee you MS will reveal somehting big. From hidden chips and their talk about mono drivers released so far (so there has to be stereo drivers), unnamed chips to power brick with basicly 2x more power in it (strong hardware need strong PSU. The games like ryse with cone raytracing and 140k polygon characters, forza with their super advanced lighting and quantum break claimed to be running real time, can not be handled by such a weak setup like so far revealed XO. There has to be something more to it.

He's taking the Patcher approach. Say a bunch of stuff, and eventually he's bound to be right at least one time. Patcher does it with more success though.

When you actually start talking technical, his sources flounder, and he can't really make any reasonable argument except to call the other person a fan boy or misinformed. He doesn't have a clue what he's talking about, and just clings to whatever positive thing some other smuck on the internet might say, again not even really understanding it.

rainslacker  +   800d ago
Not hard to spin something that already circling the drain.

Fanboy comment aside

MS domination of the media has been almost wholly negative since the reveal. Their positive notes come across as PR with no substance. It doesn't take a hive mind to see these things, it takes a hive mind to accept the positive things as truth without dissecting the information for what it's really worth.

If MS had the more powerful console, they would be screaming it from the rooftops, and saying exactly why it is more powerful. They are trying hard to convince people as it is, so why not just shut the nay-sayers up?

If MS was outselling PS4 they would also be screaming that from the rooftops. Just today, there was an article how the 360 is the dominate console in the UK...something they screamed from the rooftops, although they disregarded the Wii's sales, and the rest of the world.

So my question to you is, if they scream that kind of stuff from the rooftop, why have they all of a sudden become so humble with the Xbox One? It's not in their MO.

Bullshit. All this time Sony has been saying that the PS4 is the most powerful console on the market. They could get sued if it weren't the absolute truth. All Microsoft would have to do is say "no, they're not" and quote some stats to back it up. That would shut everyone up. Instead, they hedge and say, wait and see. Or power is more than stats can say. They put out press releases every day to make sure that people think that maybe it isn't as bad as it seems, but it is. It really goddamn is. You want an Xbox One? Fine, go buy one. Just know what you're getting and buy it for the exclusives. Don't let Microsoft delude you into buying one because the specs on it and the PS4 are "basically the same".

I told you guys they are are waiting for the NDA to expire before they reveal the full specs.I think a lot of people are gonna be surprised, but not me.

If some how you are wrong, will you give us, "normal gamers who don't care what system people get," an apology for encouraging fake rumors and causing fan-boy trouble?

XBox 1 turn on my PS4!
jjb1981  +   800d ago
I care more about what the third party devs say because Sony and Microsoft are trying to sell us a system.
Tooly  +   800d ago
ps4 still has specs thats not known the xboxone.
gamer2013  +   800d ago
Do you think if that was true then perhaps Sony, Cerny or a few game sites would have mentioned it?
Tooly  +   800d ago
so you can tell me the ps4 clock speed and the specs cerny said they will be able to unlock further in the ps4 life cycle
cabbitwithscissors  +   800d ago
Let's hope that the truth comes out on the 26th and not more BS from marketing executive.

Seriously, there's nothing much of significance they can mention to change the outlook and responses we have seen so far.

Not buying for power anyway you like power build a pc xb1 could be as powerful as wii u and would still get.
Sarobi  +   800d ago
I know there is a lot of people hoping there is some kind of secret technology that will boost X1 to be 50x more powerful than PS4. Realistically these devices will be neck and neck with each other, and it shouldn't be hard to realize that.
XabiDaChosenOne  +   800d ago
I wish it was next week already so this NDA can lift and finally reveal these "specs"
meatysausage  +   800d ago
Serious question to sony fans here.
seeing as we know as of now that the ps4 will be more powerful. Is there anyone here that is unimpressed or unhappy with what they have seen for the XBO graphics?
honest opinions

i don't think you'll get a honest answer

I am considered a SONY fanboy but I do think that the stills of Ryse look graphically impressive.

M$ don't need to talk about their specs. Their games do the talking.
quenomamen  +   800d ago
Yea, unfortunately Killer Instinct has a Cleft Palate.
oscarcat59  +   800d ago
The best games I played did not have the best graphics. If I care so much about that I would play on a pc. I care more about steady frame rates and fast load times. Also the os of the console is more important to me than pretty moving pictures. If the console has great games and operating system I will choose it. I do not care about the other much.

Twilight princess was one of my favorites last gen. That runs at 480p, and every pixel made me happy.
quenomamen  +   800d ago
I'm guessing it will something like this,

" The Xbox One features half a cagillion transistors, it's GPU features dual band double wide vectorizing pipelines that can output 3 million pixelations a second. It's double stacked
Supercalifragilisticexpialidoc ious ESRAM memory can " in theory " travel than the speed of sound, and if you add in Teh Cloud, youre looking at 3 times that power.

X bots - See I told it was more powerfull than PS4 ! He used Supercalifragilisticexpialidoc ious ! We all know what that means.

" MS decided to make us buy kinect so to make the console affordable they have to use weaker specs"

They have not made anybody buy anything.This is their design and what they are selling; if you do not like it then shut up and don't buy it. They have a vision for their gamming future and how they want to progress this generation using cloud and Kinect. Sony is just making an powerful gaming device nothing else they have no vision that I can see so go ahead and play all "killshity" in 1080p that you want and leave.
blomman79  +   799d ago
Hmm. Remember Sony say why be first out when you can whait for the other ro reveal ther spec and do it better? Hmm. Guess ms just did that. Now Both companys are well into produtions of ther hardware, and ms is about to reveal the true spec of the xbox. And maybe kinect also had some type of spec to help the one, remember xbox only works whit kinect. I just speculating. And if so game over Sony. Sorry for My english.

Rather be sorry for the sad and hopeless "wish" for some miracle to happen!
5eriously  +   799d ago
Hmm, I can aleardy envisage..

Penello : " We listened to you our faithful fanatic supporters ....(glancing over at PS4 preorder no's)... So we have overclocked the CPU/GPU by 10% and now that together with the power of cloud will give unprecedented performance boosts never ever achieved by........(glancing over at PS4 spec's) (M$)...."Sigh".. Penello take a deep breath and reaches for a glass of water thinking "{why oh why is it so damn hot in here}"...

ballisticvoodoo  +   799d ago
@Blomman79 There might be a few subtle changes but to insinuate that MS will somehow trump the PS4 specs is really a stretch.
timotim  +   799d ago
I look forward to hearing more about this. Getting an X1 either way but would be great to learn more about the missing pieces they have purposefully not talked about yet.
