Playing PS4 through the Xbox One "won't be a great experience" says Penello

Examiner: "The Internet was ablaze with reports yesterday that the Xbox One would be able to play the PlayStation 4 through the HDMI In port. Senior Director of Product Management, Albert Penello was quoted at Tokyo Game Show as saying, "Any application can be snapped to a game...this could be the live TV feed, so if you wanted to be playing Ryse and Killzone at the same time, you could snap that."" (Xbox One)

I guess this might goes for as well playing Xbox One through PS4.

Yeah, so its better just get the Ps4 then.

Yesterday I had the impression that Pennelo was trying to get more attention to the X1 using the Ps4.

"Any application can be snapped to a game...this could be the live TV feed, so if you wanted to be playing Ryse and Killzone at the same time, you could snap that."

This make me wonder... Did he simply try to make people think that Killzone is a Xbox game ? I know its unlikely but... we've all seen this.

The " Xbox, turn on the PS4" joke became real... SMH
devwan  +   871d ago

Apparently Panello's not that smart, he has a top PR job and came out with this:

"Its also funny to me that this was basically a quick question I was asked after a UI demo, which I answered, but its written like I made a big deal about it"

He should know very well by now that people will write about any little thing you say, whether it's in front of a crowd of 20,000 or to some guy you chat with stood at the coffee machine.
black0o  +   871d ago
I kinda feel sry for him ... the headlines were all about ps4 "play PS4 throw x1 ..etc""

and everything else he talked about was forgotten xD

So linking a 360 to it wouldnt work great either?
FamilyGuy  +   871d ago | Well said
He's basically also confirming the snapping to your 360 or and games console won't be all that great. Latency will hamper all gaming experiences.

This guy... LOL
rdgneoz3  +   871d ago
@PowerVR Seeing as MS have accidentally advertised Killzone as an xbox game in the past, you never know if he's "Smarter than you."
pedrof93  +   871d ago

So him mention Killzone its just free publicity ?
Eonjay  +   871d ago
With all due respect, how would he know if it wouldn't be a great experience. If the Xbox One's HDMI pass-through is adequate, as it need to be for any input TV or otherwise, then it should work fine.
stage88  +   871d ago

Why is everyone taking what Penello said about Killzone and applying it like he's trying to use it to his advantage??

What's the biggest genre in the North American console market? FPS! What big game does Microsoft make that is an FPS game? Halo!!! What is Sony's big comparable FPS game that everyone knows and loves (and should buy because it's the best Playstation Exclusive IMO) Killzone!

Just thought I should outline that for you all

no they left off his other comments as he said in the article "I'll get back with a more detailed story, but long story short it won't be a great experience, and I indicated as much in the interview which wasn't included,"
pixelsword  +   871d ago
It just embarrasses the Xbone when all of that power is thrusting through it; the Xbone is thinking:

"how does all of that fit inside of me?"

''Playing the Xbox One "won't be a great experience" says Penello.''

mistertwoturbo  +   871d ago
He's just talking about latency. There's no trolling from Penello here. Although it could be said the same for any console connected through it.
iamnsuperman  +   871d ago
I am not surprised by this comment. One thing I do not get is why anyone would do this? Having two systems on just to play one game is a little bit illogical. Unless you are desperate to save a HDMI port (TVs tend to have a few anyway) I expect no-one to do this.
wishingW3L  +   871d ago
for the multitasking and combined friend-lists. Like, you could skype while playing Killzone.
HammadTheBeast  +   871d ago
True I guess. Still, pretty niche. But cool feature nonetheless.
Jeedai Infidel  +   871d ago
Speaking of Skype, I never caught it if they said you could Skype across platforms( i.e. pc, phone/tablet). Is it fully functional Skype, or just Xbox to Xbox?

Sorry if I'm off topic, just curious and too lazy to search myself ;-)
Conzul  +   871d ago
Ehh, you should expect PS4 to have its own Skype app that, like the Bone, will be able to be used in-game. The Linux OS upon which PS4 is built is highly optimized for mutlitasking.

Honestly I wouldn't be inclined to use any of the consoles as a HDMI In.

The longer you have your console on, the more life you are losing. Why would you want more wear and tear on your console when you are using another console or just watching TV.

I've always tried to minimize the time my PS3 and 360 is on.
BLAKHOODe  +   871d ago
Supposedly, the Xbox One's large size is because it was meant to be an always-on console for 10 years. So, unless Microsoft pulls another 180, if that's true, leaving it on shouldn't be a problem.
Magicite  +   871d ago
any device thats test, can work for a very long time non-stop as long as its in optimal conditions.
KONAAs  +   871d ago
ehh i leave my PS3 on all the time and its been 4 years still working perfectly, if im not playign games im on netflix, hulu, vudu,youtube, or its just turned on
Jeedai Infidel  +   871d ago
@KONAAs can you say netflix, hulu, vudu, youtube 5 times in a row really fast?
Conzul  +   871d ago
PS4 has a low-power sleeplike mode that will let you keep it "on" indefinitely. And software-wise, Linux derivatives rarely ever need a reboot.
#2.2.5 (Edited 871d ago ) | Agree(4) | Disagree(1) | Report
WildArmed  +   871d ago
Sleeplike mode is different, because it will run the console on low profile settings, but keeping a console on is different. You are using Cpu/gpu/ram in good proportions compared to sleep mode.
wannabe gamer  +   870d ago
a lot of people dont know it but putting a console in a entertainment cabinet wit ha closed back and such is one of the worst things you can do. the heat just builds and builds up will the entire space is hot and then it starts getting even hotter in the console and if it doesnt mess up it certainly shortens lifespan

Think he's just realizing that what he said was taken to mean, "The best thing you can do with XB1 is use it to play the PS4."

Though really, just sounds like a technophile thing to me. Something that people will do just to do it.

How is it that after all that's happened, MS only continues to suffer from foot-in-mouth disease?

Thegamer41  +   871d ago
I think he meant to say, the only way to get good games on the xbone is to connect a PS4 to it :)
saint_seya  +   871d ago
So you are saying that ps4 games, that will remain the same are going to be good just because they go through xbox one, or its that u wish u had those good games on xbox one, but u can call em good just because they are not in xbox one, so the only way to not feel guilty for enjoying the best games is using a ps4 to kill your fanboy guilty..
Easy to see how much you want to play those good games, but your biased mind wont let you :)

He should have never made the comment in the first place. It only added to the presumption that PS4 where you want to game. To many ill-advised comments coming from the Microsoft camp in my opinion. Should really just stop talking unless it's specifically about their exclusive games.

Anyway,hes saying anything interactive wont have the best experience going through the HDMI in so I would assume that that means your 360 as well.

this article has proven what low lives many of you have become, article earlier today the ps4 crashes on a live show and i even defended that,,, and many others said the same thing no big whooppie,, but here comes a article that also isnt that important but regard the x1 and again its one troll comment after another.

hdmi latency issues. The hdmi-in was origininally intended for your cable box. . as he stated, hdmi latency is fine for video feed but not interactivity. Not gonna bother hookin up my ps4 thru ONE then.
solid_snake3656  +   871d ago
ONE? I think you mean Xbone
Ashlen  +   871d ago
I was going to mention HDMI pass though lag on the other article but decided to pass. I have a STB that has HDMI pass though and I thought I could plug my PS3 though it but there was about a half second of lag on every action. It's the same with video recording/streaming, which is why you need a splitter.

In fact,Microsoft sucks and the X1 is a great fail at this time.
