"Xbox One's Architecture Allows Faster Prototyping"

they way the headline is written insinuates a comparison to the PS4

according to various 3rd party developers the PS4 is the fastest and most easy to develop for

also most 3rd party games are demonstrated on the PS4 much earlier than on the XB1

darthv72  +   660d ago | Well said
@new...if it had said 'faster prototyping than PS4' then i can see where you would think that.

But in reality it just insinuates faster prototyping as in faster than previous methods/platforms.

The PS4 is not part of that insinuation other than by your own admission.

"they way the headline is written insinuates a comparison to the PS4 "

????? and where was ps4 in the statement?

The sole purpose of Xbox was to implement direct x to simplify pc to console deployment........this is NOT a stab at other manufactures. and it is not a stab at other manufacturers to say direct X is commonly used, it's been around for nearly 20 years.

@NEWMONDAY, Seriously?

What you think the words mean, and the actual meaning of these words are two massively different things I am afraid.

Yes, the PS4 is great and powerful. Greatness Awaits. Wonderful.

But please stop with trying to make this a console war issue...
BallsEye  +   660d ago | Well said

I'd like to get a real source for that. Link to articles or anything else from third party devs (no sony indies please!) confirming ps4 is stronger or is faster to develop for. So far the only one who said it was People Can Fly former dev that said " I HEARD FROM OTHERS" . Anyone who post this nonsense like you just did should provide real sources or never speak again about it.

@All... This article is nice to read. I'm not surprised that Xbox One is easy to develop for, because the Xbox 360 was easy to develop for.

Mind you the comments from Sony Fan Children saying that the PS4 is easy to develop, I have to say "ABOUT BLOODY TIME!" I'm sure Sony were high when they decided to use the CELL processor in the Praystation 3. Thqnk god they all saw sense and went X86 / X64 this time round.

So I suppose XB1 is easiear than Xbox 360 (though 360 was a breeze for devs) and PS4 must be an amazing breath of fresh air following the PS3 (PS3 while powerful was a B@stard to code against)
Armyntt  +   659d ago
@Newmonday, hahah your own links dont even prove your point. First link was an "anonymous" source and the second link implied a PS4 vs X1 comparison but in reality he only said how easy the PS4 is to develope not that its easier than X1.

@Monday The headline isn't insinuating a damn thing. Its the difference between 360 and PS3.

You really need a life, no where in the article did they mention PS4 or any Sony console. Don't you have some Xbox You Tube video's to go bash with the rest of your Sony fanboy mob somewhere?

Honestly you guys are literally the ONLY fanbase that have a do or die mission, an agenda a brigade. And manage to out crazy any fanboy in gaming history ever.

People exactly like you ruined a campaign that Toys R Us was promoting for X1.

And I bet you feel happy about that.

Its really hard to enjoy gaming with your fanbase ruining everything at every single single second of the day.

I never listen to fanboys, but this marks the day to NEVER EVER listen to a single Sony fan ever again. Whenever MS post news I'll listen to them and completely ignore any Sony fan yelling "fake" "not real" or any of the sorts, I'll ignore Until you guys check yourselves into an insane asylum for a year.

"Your 'sony gamers are fake gamers' comment is immature and shows you to be a fanboy.....how pathetic."

I'm sorry but, how does that make him a fanboy? You clearly lack the intelligence to even comprehend the definition of 'fanboy'. Where in his comment does he show a sign of superiority towards a console? If you had the brains, you'd notice that his subject is 'fanboys', not consoles. It shows that you can't even refute his argument using a logical and valid argument.

How pathetic.


"yea the world is against vibe from some people is old and sad"

It's not old and sad if the trash-talking has forced a toys company to disable it's comments and remove the video AND, have articles written about the situation. I actually find it sad that you're trying to minimise the situation.

I'm quite sure PS4 couldn't of handled it any better. Besides look at DriveClub, it's still throwing 30FPS. I acknowledge that the PS4 is more powerful but it isn't either having a walk in the park regarding fps and 1080p.

Its only a couple more fps more powerfull.

"SOMETIMES" at 60fps. Shadowfall doesnt run at a stable 60fps.
pete007  +   660d ago
i agree with you, and by the way i believe all of those fanboys have skipped ps3, because i guess they only buy the easiest console to develop to, XBOX ONE never had any comments such as gabe newell did in regards ps3, remember? and not only him, most third party and still the disaster survived til today, i dont see xbox any worse than ps3, its basically the same as 360 with a pc cpu, the radical change was on sony side, demonstrating ps3 architecture a complete failure, dev wise.

Funnymonkey013  +   660d ago
Trust me any games on X1 is bound to look better on PS4 as it's easier more powerful to develope games 4. Plus 1080p at 30 is great consedering that it does more things then forza 5 like night time and soon weather effect I mean I don't c any added features on froza like night and weather effects and DC will still look a lot better then froza 5. And one last thing killzone SF is 1080p at 60 in MP and the best looking game so far 4 a next gen console. Plus one more infamous SS is open world and I heard its 60 and also at 1080p as well. I mean come on killer instant a fighting game is 720p at 60 really laughable.

Because they figured a lower poly count would make for smoother game play? Developers often have to balance things to make the game play better. I am all for lowing the already outrageous poly count if it means smoother animations, a solid framerate, etc.
Yodagamer  +   660d ago
Not so much downgraded as most of the polygons were places you wouldn't see so they rebalanced graphically with better shaders, no lod and more realtime physics. In all Honest i'd prefer the new option as changes in LOD always drives me nuts.

Not trying to further this stupid topic of discussion(frankly the vitriol that comes from the Sony and Microsoft fan-boys makes me angry) but technically speaking there are plenty of named developers who have said positive things about the ps4. This is the first real developer with a name to do the same to xbox1. Just saying.

Honestly theres two ways to look at it...

If guerrilla games comes out saying "ps4 is the best OMG"
Then you're like "duhh, wat else are you gonna say you work for them"

Same goes for Crytek(ryse is exclusive to xb1)

Its a different story if a dev working on multiplatform titles praises one over the other
Stuntz  +   660d ago
I agree with you, BUT no devs making multiplats has come out and said well you know this console is better. Im pretty sure everyone knows that Dx11 is going to help graphically. People also seem to claim that the "cloud is a joke" but many MANY devs have came out and said that it can be a HUGE game changer. I played X1 at the tour and let me tell you the games look amazing, DR3 thousands of zombies on the screen at once and the game is still so smooth. Ryse looks literally like its real world, how amazing the graphics are. Forza is just amazing that speaks for itself. Killer Instinct, is another one how smooth the game runs is incredible. The games look great, but then again that is just my opinion.
DanielGearSolid  +   660d ago
some of the ps4 praising devs were anonymous.. So I wouldnt know if they were multiplat or not

I gotta say I like the pattern I am seeing from developers regarding kinect. That is "using it where it feels right or makes sense" for the game they are making. There is no pushing from MS like we saw with Kinect 1.0 and that is because its not an add-on. On top of that MS is implementing Kinect into the base architecture of the system so its uses will be applied out of the box with things like player recognition, controller swapping and voice navigation of the system and isn't needed in all games to push the system.

None of us get a paycheck from either Sony, Nintendo or Microsoft and yet all of you'll want to make a fool of yourself over stupid spec numbers, exclusives & sales you won't see a dime of. Real gamers know it benefits us if they 2 companies exist cause it gives us more and more options as to what we want and better games over time. Sony and Microsoft spending all this money to please us is the best thing that can happen for us gamers. A company comes out a praises MS and the console they make and it's like all the fanboys on here act like sharks smelling blood and are ready to attack MS and Crytek when you all know if they were making a game for Sony you'll would be the first to defend them against any and everybody.

The chipset in the PS4 _supports_ DX11, which is a software API. The only operating systems that can actually use DX11 are MS Windows-based products, which the PS4 does NOT run, and the XB1 does.

Sony uses an OpenGL-like 3D API, bro, and uses their own OS and SDK, which are NOT on Windows, Linux, or any other development environment.

Can we not just let the games speak for themselves?

The ignorance in this thread is astounding.

Here it is, the truth:

* Take ANY 3rd party developer, and have them create a crossplat game for XB1, PS4, and PC.

* The developer will develop PRIMARILY on the PC, which uses *drumroll* DX11 and Windows APIs as the primary software interface.

* The XB1 ALSO runs Windows, albeit a streamlined version, with full DX11 support.

* The PS4, just like the PS3 and every Sony console before it, uses a CUSTOM OS, with a CUSTOM API and tools, and an OpenGL-like 3D API. It is DIFFERENT from Windows development. (although honestly, this isn't really that big a deal, except when maintaining the Sony-specific rendering engine, or Sony-specific GPGPU code, or writing the app framework in the first place... or the networking APIs, or.. hmm maybe it is a big deal)

The end result is that developing on XB1 is indeed easier, when transitioning from PC, than the PS4 is. It's the truth. Deal with it -- there is no arguing around it. Despite the fact that the PS4's architecture is now much easier to utilize (than the PS3 or the PS2), the API is *still* harder to utilize than the XB1's, for any dev not doing a PS4 exclusive. It's even different enough from the PS3 to make PS3/PS4 crossplat development harder than XB1/X360.

Go ahead and disagree, if you like, but know full well that you are totally ignorant, or a complete Sony tool, if you do so, and not a REAL gamer (who shouldn't be biased in any way, based solely upon irrelevant hardware detail) at all.

get your facts straight you desperate, desperate xbot


are you going to argue that sony doesnt have "cloud," next?
wishingW3L  +   660d ago
do you even understand what he said? Because everything is true. DirectX might not go as deep as Sony's low level APIs to take advantage of the hardware but it is a fact and a very obvious argument to make that DirectX should be a more streamlined API compared to Sony's PSGL with its bunch of random extensions.

I think Sony has like 3 totally different interfaces while MS only has one, DirectX, and everything developers need in in there. Meanwhile Sony has openGL ES 1.1 with some 2.0 extensions (BTW 1.1 libraries are useless for modern GPUs since they are like 20 years old). It has Nvidia's CG. And finally their own developed libraries in the form of PSGL + libgcm for low level shader programming.

and my bad, it's openGL ES 1.0 libraries with some 1.1 extensions, not 2.0.

"get your facts straight you desperate, desperate xbot"

If you had been on this site at all over the past 7 years, you would realize that I have been one of Sony's biggest supporters, and the PS3, in particular's, biggest fans. The fact that I see a lot of Sony's new posturing, with regards to the PS4, as BS, should be pretty informative.

They gloss over the problems, and highlight the positives -- classic marketing, which is almost a direct contrast to their PS3 stance of honesty, which I really appreciated. It's almost like they hired a whole new marketing team, and they came from the tobacco industry or cola industry or something. Or from a pharmaceutical company, and because the PS4 won't kill you if you use it, they don't have to bother with telling you all the disadvantages it has -- instead, you have to see them for yourself, or trust in the intelligence of "random people" on the internet who do understand.

I'm not a fanboy at all. Well, a fanboy of the truth, maybe. The comments in the article are completely justified, and your link, which states how Sony is providing some extensions to an existing (DX11 graphics only) FEATURE set (not an API) go a long way to demonstrate just how uninformed your viewpoint is.

Try to learn something from what I posted, rather than making some crap up, in the name of fanboyism. Your post reminds me of the actual Xbots who claimed up-and-down, when the PS3 was released, that the Cell was just a crappy single core with a bunch of "DSPs" and that it was not really a powerful CPU at all. What a joke that was, to anyone who knew better.

This is a pretty credible developer as far as their loyalties lie. They are a third-party developer making a first party game.

As time goes forward in this new generation most will learn that once again Sony has twisted their facts about their architecture, for instance the 14+4 balance, or not being full HSA and picking a GPU architecture that is not equipped with future technologys, but with that said from a marketing standpoint 1.8 Tflop, GDDR5 175 GB/s, and 18 CU's sounds good, right up to the point we find out the details.

I said it once I'll say it again there's nothing on this planet that is 50% more than something else but you can't tell its 50% more or 30% more and oh yes they are in financial trouble.

Go to AMD's HSA web page from start to finish the article explains that Xbox one is in fact full HSA and has a performance increase of 2.3%. Someone has been honest with us all along and someone has been playing games with us all along. like "Mantle".

Really. You really talk a lot of shit. Devs have had time with both. Plenty is being said about the ps4 being more powerful. Stop clutching at straws and what ifs. The gpu in both consoles is fully custom. People clinging to this super custom Xbox one gpu need to pull their heads out of their arsed.

Btw here's a simple show of the 30-50% difference in power

Ryse 900p solid 30fps
Killzone SP 1080p 30fps

That extra fidelity comes from the extra power available to the developers. and if the xbox one could actually run with the ps4 then we would see Ryse at 1080p even if it's still only at 30fps, being crytek they would have pushed for the best they could possibly achieve. And don't bother with Ryse looks better than killzone, because that is simply a load of crap. And yes I've seen them both. They are both impressive. But the power difference and fidelity is showing

Here we go again. PS Fanboys stay off Xbox conversations damn. Its like it a race soon as we hear something postive about the xb1 boom here comes the haters
beereal360  +   660d ago
good god if the playstation is so good why are all the fanboys surfing and trolling the web and not playing ps3 uhmmmm because it sucks.

If dx 11 was so good (which it isnt) why is steam making its own gaming os? and why is amd making its own api(which they are allowing nvidia to use too)? dx 11 is crap ms has been the bane of gaming for gaming for too long
annus  +   660d ago
You basically answered your own question. AMD and Steam want some of the gaming market, instead of it primarily belonging to MS. That has nothing to do with how good it is or isn't. DX only works on platforms that MS wants since it is proprietary software, which is why many devices don't use it.
Erudito87  +   659d ago
dx 11 is crap. Ms uses it to keep control of the market and force os upgrades on its users. It also doesn't give devs that much hardware level access to the end machine so performance is nowhere near where it should be.
annus  +   659d ago
DX is fine if you want to build 3D applications fast, which many do. It has massive amounts of support, documentation, and libraries. Also anyone who is developing a game will know that you can actually write wrappers that allow for low level programming that will then work within the games anyway.

DX is also on the same 'level' as OpenGL so don't expect much to change, unless you actually believe the PR pitch that Mantle is 10x faster than both.

I use linux, I prefer OpenGL, and I hope for the downfall of DX, but I understand why people use it.
