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.""

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

pedrof931373d ago (Edited 1373d ago )

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

devwan1373d 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.

black0o1373d ago (Edited 1373d 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

Gamingcapacity1373d ago

So linking a 360 to it wouldnt work great either?

FamilyGuy1373d ago

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

rdgneoz31373d 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."

pedrof931373d ago


So him mention Killzone its just free publicity ?

Eonjay1373d 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.

stage881373d ago (Edited 1373d ago )

So Penello is just saying get a PS4 then?

UnholyLight1373d ago (Edited 1373d 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

wannabe gamer1372d ago

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,"

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?"

kickerz1373d ago

or maybe xbox dosnt want PS4 inside of it cause he smells funny and is a little bit sideways.

HammadTheBeast1373d ago

Not sure if you intended it, but your comment could be taken out of context way too easily.

Ipunchbabiesforfun1373d ago

wow captain obvious...of course it can be taken out of context...

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

i heard that with girl sexy voice in my head
For some reason reading this
made me open a porn site

You must be smelling the upper lip or at least the hot air rising past the nostrils(wink)

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


mistertwoturbo1373d 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.

iamnsuperman1373d 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.

wishingW3L1373d ago

for the multitasking and combined friend-lists. Like, you could skype while playing Killzone.

HammadTheBeast1373d ago

True I guess. Still, pretty niche. But cool feature nonetheless.

Jeedai Infidel1373d 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 ;-)

Conzul1373d ago (Edited 1373d 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.

WildArmed1373d ago

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.

BLAKHOODe1373d 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.

Magicite1373d ago

any device thats test, can work for a very long time non-stop as long as its in optimal conditions.

KONAAs1373d 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 Infidel1373d ago

@KONAAs can you say netflix, hulu, vudu, youtube 5 times in a row really fast?

Conzul1373d ago (Edited 1373d 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.

WildArmed1373d 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 gamer1372d ago (Edited 1372d 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?

BG115791372d ago

Well, if Microsoft would actually have a foot in the mouth it would actually be good for them, they would talk less and because of probably be more wise.

AceBlazer131373d ago

Starting to think the xbone is nothing more than a splitter.

Belking1373d ago

no, it's like the only wat to get good games on ps4 is to pass it through

stage881373d ago

That makes no sense at all.

HeyImBen111373d ago

What a waste of a

Thegamer411373d 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_seya1373d 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 :)

5eriously1372d ago

Another 1 bubble troll. Shame its all he can do!

Another bubble down troll although it seems you cannot loose the only one you have!

hardcorehippiez1372d ago

i see it more as this is how xbone is finally reaching ps4 level graphics lmao :P

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.
