Resident Evil Creator Says PS4 And Xbox One Are "Almost Identical"

Shinji Mikami, creator of Resident Evil, currently working on the last game he’ll direct – The Evil Within – says “There’s no real difference between them,” when referring to Sony and Microsoft’s next generation machines in this month’s Edge magazine.

“We only need one console. Why do I have to make two versions of a game? And when Xbox One was first announced it had lower specs than PS4, but now they’re almost identical.

“So either will do.”

Did i miss this Xbone specs bump? I can only think that he means identical in architecture.

Ultra1068d ago (Edited 1068d ago )

The CPU & GPU speed increased, thats what we know of. Maybe the developers know more what we don't on final devkits.

Besides the Jaguar APUs, both architectures are just the opposite. One relies on offloading/balancing for steady fps and the other relies on brute raw performance.

cleft51068d ago (Edited 1068d ago )

It's the "almost" part that makes me go with the PS4. Still I wish the Xbox One people well.

Jaqen_Hghar1068d ago

yes a man is sure Sony, the HARDWARE MANUFACTURER, didn't balance their system at all. Hell PS3 was the least balanced system like ever and it still had better looking games than the easy to develop for 360 so a man can venture a guess as to what'll happen now.

Elimin81068d ago

You know what they say about 'almost'! It doesn't cou.....? But on a more serious note.. Both will be fine..

Specs are great, but games are greater... GTA 5 on PS3, but looks amazing on both systems. Great time to be a gamer, bottom line, let the fanboys duke it out over trivial things, me too busy playing the actual systems soon!! Just over 1 month left!!!!!

christocolus1068d ago

its funny when ms said this no one believed..they released dev kits to most developers very late and even then the hardware, os and drivers wernt even close to being finalized...ms has been saying this .every game so far ms has shown all started on the very early dev kits..since then ms has done a lot of upgrades to os, drivers and even the hardware..but even at that games like ryse and quantum break are amazing even with the 10% gpu reserved for kinect..we know ms will release more of the gpu to devs but imagine what games made from the ground up using finalized dev kits will look like and now that developers are gettin their hands on the more recent dev kits theyv started realising just how powerful the xbx one really is... well shinji also hinted a while back that he would love to develop a horror game that uses kinects heart monitoring feature, looking forward to that too.?...

We'll be fine...

gaffyh1068d ago (Edited 1068d ago )

It's to do with the architecture, and they are almost identical in that sense, the only real difference is the RAM and the way you manage the data transfer on that. In terms of specs overall, PS4 is clearly significantly more powerful in every aspect, anyone that argues against that is a fanboy, plain and simple. It's not the same as PS3 vs 360, 360 had certain advantages in key areas, plus PS3 was notoriously difficult to code for. This time PS4 is more powerful in every technical spec, and both are using the same architecture = PS4 multiplats are VERY likely to look better.

/truth

/don't cry.

XboxFun1068d ago

Interesting...

And yet another 3rd party dev saying that both consoles are almost identical and no significant differences in both.

And yet we get the spin committee saying that he has to say this due to livelihood or he doesn't want to get on MS's bad side.

So who do we believe?

I mean we can't take MS's first parties word because N4G claims it's all PR. Sony's first parties say the same thing and it's considered the gospel.

How many devs do we have to hear from who are all saying that the two consoles are pretty close with no real significant differences?

Quote from article,

"He’s obviously speaking in terms of development, rather than specifications, and it sounds as though they’ll both be more in line with PC architecture, making it easier to port these games due to the similarities with development"

Don't make it complicated, it's actually really simple.

Skips1068d ago (Edited 1068d ago )

@Gozer

"I just look at how Ryse puts the entire ps4 line up to shame graphically"

Going by most previews about how in actual gameplay, Ryse doesn't even feel next gen (gameplay wise and visually). The look on your face when it gets nothing but 5's and 6's will be hilarious. lol Ryse will be MS's Lair for sure.

And I like how most people here are missing the part where it says identical in architecture, not power. XD

corvusmd1068d ago

And the ESRAM nearly doubled the bandwidth speed

Deadpoolio1068d ago

Oh my god a 6% speed boost after it was downclocked to stop the system from frying itself...Lets stop pretending that the 0.06% boost is something significant and puts it on the level of the PS4

@Cleft5: So that negligible difference in performance is the deciding factor for you? Not the controller? Not the games? Not the price???

WTF.

@black0o:

"it's politic .. he can't downply any console since he wants to sell he game to both camps"

True, but devs with a name doesn't have to say anything at all.

There are numerous AAA dev already saying Xbox One and PS4 is pretty similar in power with minor differences in strength.

Guess that balance talk wasn't sh!t after all, and it shows. Ryse looks among the best games out there, and Forza 5 is 1080p at 60fps and not aimed at 60fps and running at 30fps like DriveClub.

In the end though, these specs don't matter. If it did, PC would be king cause nobody beats PC almost ever!

he indeed mean identical in architecture...i think ?!
both are using the same specs
since both hardware are from AMD
but with ps4 ofcourse using the better specs
(the much stronger GPU and the GDDR5 unified RAM)

also keep in mind
this is a 3rd party dev
he can't say one is weaker than the other
but it's ok since we have the offical specs for both

Death1068d ago

So a third party dev that is not dependant to either console isn't a relieable source, but a first party dev is more accurate? That's interesting since Microsoft claims that they have more processing power, but fans discount that as fantasy. To be clear, if Microsoft claims higher specs, they are wrong. If third parties say both systems are almost identical, they are wrong. If Sony claims more power, they are right since they are "official"?

Ezz20131068d ago (Edited 1068d ago )

@death

1.no you are wrong
3rd party devs are much more dependant on both consoles
because their goal is to get money from both xb1/ps4 owners
so they will never say one is better than the other
this is a simple PR from 3rd party dev....he didn't put any facts to back his comment if you notice

2.MS don't have higher specs and i don't know where did you get that from
both can claim what they want
i don't believe any PR fromboth Sony & MS
look at FACTS only
i look at the Offical specs from both MS and Sony
and that's all what i need to know about which is better and more powerful
and any one with brain can know that ps4 having
50% more powerful GPU and much faster/better RAM
means it's the more powerful system

you can deny it all you want, hit disagrees like that change Facts lol, believe any PR you hear to feel better
but this is a simple FACT

Death1068d ago

Believe me, I don't get off on specs like some seem to on this site. Microsoft claims to have something like 2.04 peak tflops with the speed increase and eSram. Sony is claiming 1.84 tflops. I don't personally believe Microsoft can sustain 2.04, but do think they can hit peak power close to that of Sony. I also don't believe Sony can sustain 1.84 since I'm still under the impression the GDDR5 will limit the CPU side of the Jaguar core to atleast a small degree. The GPU looks to be taking in some of the CPU load to help. Getting both consoles to work with a sigle memory source isn't an easy task since neither GDDR5 nor DDR3 are optimal for both a CPU and GPU. I think at the end of the day both companies are taking two different routes to come up with the same solution.

JamieL1068d ago

@ Death
Nope you're wrong.
Sony4Life, power of the Cell, P2P is better than dedicated servers now, paying for MP is fine too, 8GB of GDDR5 Bee-ach, exclusives, apps not behind a pay wall, no camera=choice, Move's better, Sony had it first(no matter what you're talking about), Vita+PS3= better than WiiU. Anyone who thinks anything other than this has no business on this site, or right to live at all to be honest. Jump on the bandwagon or die.

andibandit1068d ago

P2P is better than dedicated servers??????

Yeah right, host migrations and inconsistent lag is the bane of multiplayer gaming

Ezz20131068d ago (Edited 1068d ago )

@Death

MS claim 2.04Tflops ....with 7790 GPU?! 0_0 lol XD
and you believe that ?!
they took out 10% of the GPU for Kinect and OS
sony didn't need to take out any thing from GPU since PScamera is not need for the console
that make the xbox GPU is even weaker than it already is
it was after the overclock 1.31Tflops but after they took 10% it fall back to 1.17tflops
that make PS4 GPU 56-60% more powerful
unless you have a link for sony talking out some of it GPU for not need things like PScam ?!
also read this
http://gamingbolt.com/ps4-g...

as for the RAM as @snp said below:

"PS4's GDDR5 supposidly taps out very close to it's theoretical max - 176GBps. In the real world the Esram taps out at 140-150GBps bandwith. This is without hypothetical where the GDDR5 provides dynamic solutions and the esram could theoretically prove of insufficient quantity and become a bottleneck."

like he said Esram infact become
a Bottleneck
developers won’t take them long to get their engine up and running with stable performance on PlayStation 4 while Xbox One required a lot more optimization to get up and running properly
so i think it will end up harder to work with
and it already much weaker than ps4

the CPU will not have any issue utilizing all the available bandwidth on ps4. After all, the data fetched by the CPU is simply being copied into the CPUs cache for processing. As long as said cache is faster than the RAM, there won't be a bottleneck.
going with GDDR5 was a better choice
also read this
http://www.amd.com/US/PRODU...
no matter how you spin it GDDR5 is the better and more faster Memory
and AMD confirm it as well
even 512GB GDDR5 is better/faster than 1GB DR3
ps4 have no flaws what so ever
and not a single developer is saying any thing but praise about ps4 hardware
can you prove it wrong with LINKS?!....no you simply can't

also this article is not talking about Specs
it's talking about development

FROM THE ARTICLE :
"He’s obviously speaking in terms of development, rather than specifications, and it sounds as though they’ll both be more in line with PC architecture, making it easier to port these games due to the similarities with development"

both have PC architecture which make it easier to port these games due to the similarities with development.

in the End
because i'm really getting tired of repeating myself for every xbox fan who still can't accept PS4 is the more powerful system
you want to believe what ever help you sleep the night and ignore the offical specs and facts ?!
ok cool ...what ever make you happy

I'm a fanboy because I call out the most immature behavior I've ever seen grown men partake in, but in your head you're 100% right no matter what facts or objectivity may come into play.

Me -open minded, likes games not systems, calls out juvinile ridiculous "views" that he thinks are pointless= Fanboy
You - Close minded, hateful, loyal to 1 BRAND, no objectivity, with the view that unless the package says Sony it's garbage= True gamers

If that’s the case I'll be a fanboy any day.

The XB1 has a better CPU than the PS4 (about 10 to 15% better) thats going to help the XB1.

GPU is better with the PS4 ( better visuals) graphics)but not by much

In regards to memory i don't think its conclusive yet.

8gigs of GDDR5 is better than 8gigs of Dddr3 for graphics. GDDR5 has twice the bandwidth. Reason to how this 50 per cent better claim came about

But lot people forget the 32 MB ESRAM the Microsoft has also. It has a separate bandwidth closely matching the 8 gigs OF GDDR5 the PS4 is using. On paper the XB1 has more memory bandwidth, but its not unified.

Also exclusive to XB1 (Direct 11.2X) this will enhance graphics.

majiebeast1068d ago

You have absolutely no clue what you are talking about. Just stahp!

CGI-Quality1068d ago

I'm guessing you don't understand the specs of these devices. Let's begin with that CPU difference - any source?

Brazz1068d ago

1º) we still can't say nothing of CPU, there are no oficial clock/cache or any "final number" for ps4 and X1, plus, no dev have come to say "xbox one have better CPU". we can't even start to think all the modifications done by sony and mirosoft. even if there is a diference, it will probably be minimal

2º) same as above, but... there are a lots of people sying that the diference is big, some say 20%-50%, it's not oficial, but there are lot's of reports from devs. and other "insider" of the market... if this get a confirm. than this will be a big advantage for Ps4.

3º) Gddr5 vs ddr3 + Esram > let's be fair, i'm a huge defender of the gddr5, and i talk a lot whit some friends about the advantages of gddr5 over ddr3 + Esram. the thing is... yeah, for users this isn't that big of a deal... Developers will have easyer time whit Gddr5, and ddr3 + Esram will need more work, but in the end (if the developer put some work in this) the thing can work great for both. Gddr5 is something great for devs. (make things more easy), but ,if the dev. want, they cando the same whit X...

4º)that point is kind of... interesting... ya see, Directx isn't good.... i dare say that opengl is better. do ya know why? because openGl is open and have the heads of likes of Nvidia and AMD in it! sure, Directx is better than openGL if you use it on windows, but be sure of this, when things come to consoles, that things are done from "the metal" (basic code level) and there is no "windows" to work for directx, openGL will have the upperhand.

imt5581068d ago

WTF are you talking about? 150 MHz more CPU clock in XO is nothing. And it's not 10%, it's 9%.

OpenGL 4.4 say hi to DirectX 11.2

Jaqen_Hghar1068d ago

What the? 10-15% better is going to help when it's Xbox but 50% better won't help PS4 by much? Also GPU is the most IMPORTANT part of the gaming equation. Just ask any PC gamer.

Kayant1068d ago (Edited 1068d ago )

"On paper the XB1 has more memory bandwidth, but its not unified. "

On paper also according to major nelson the X360 has more bandwidth then both consoles --->

"Xbox 360 has 278.4 GB/s of memory system bandwidth. The PS3 has less than one-fifth of Xbox 360′s (48 GB/s) of total memory system bandwidth"

http://majornelson.com/2005...

Also if you think the Laptop CPUs in XB1 & PS4 matter this gen that much then looool. PS3's Cell is more powerful than both same can be said for X360 probably. Both consoles have similar CPUs so the upclock done to the XB1's will make a different but not as much as you think. Also PS4 CPU clock speed might be have also received a upclock but that is speculation for now as the clock speed is unconfirmed since the leaks. The GPU will be more important.

Direct 11.2X might be exclusive to XB1 but PS4's API support DX11.2+ features http://www.gdcvault.com/pla...

Volkama1068d ago

I dunno, typically when a PC gamer buys a higher end card they also overclock their CPU to avoid bottlenecking it. And we're talking in excess of 4ghz here, there wouldn't be much point in investing anything into graphics with a 1.75ghz CPU on a PC.

The CPUs on both systems still look like the weak link, but nobody has really complained or complimented so hopefully it's a non-issue.

AndrewLB1068d ago

People don't seem to understand that some of the GPU power gap will be closed because of how much more efficient the Xbone's DirectX API is than the variant of OpenGL found on PS4.

Plus i'm certain M$ will have a more efficient operating system thats highly optimized. OS's are what they do for a living.

IHassounah1068d ago

DDR3 isn't for graphics.....

Deadpoolio1068d ago

Um please learn what your talking about before trying to talk specs....No the CPU in the One80 is not better, I believe they are actually the same......and we know for a FACT that 8gb of GDDR5 IS WITHOUT A DOUBT better than 8gb of DDR3...And NO 32mn of Esram does NOT put it in the realm of GDDR5, not on paper and not in reality...Stop believing the crap that Xbots keep pulling out of their asses

A lot of the components are the same, but the architectures are wildly different. Xbox One uses ESRAM and DDR3. PS4 uses GDDR5. This means memory is managed differently on different consoles. The Xbox One has a faster CPU. The PS4 has a more powerful GPU. The Xbox One has a more powerful audio chip for processing Kinect. The PS4 has doesn't have a mandatory camera. Xbox uses Direct X. PS4 uses OpenGl and PSSL. They are both shades of black.

So its all about context. But, its is practically impossible to have these two machines give identical max performances. Physics always wins.

fghtrer3fb5erg1068d ago

WAit a second, what do you know about the ps4 cpu? as far as we all know sony has only talked about the gpu and the second chip.

Eonjay1068d ago

Excellent question DatRamboX

Actually we know because we understand the technology that AMD says the Jaguar CPU is based on. They are actually the same in both systems, but Microsoft Up-clocked their CPU because they felt that they needed to give developer more power.

Dusdg1068d ago

We do know that the Xbox one does not have to use any cores to process any audio as the shape chip will be doing it all. The ps4 on the other hand has to use the CPU to do most audio processing before it sends it off to its audio chip.

Eonjay1068d ago

@Dusdg

If you are pinning you hopes on audio; you are lost.

IRetrouk1067d ago (Edited 1067d ago )

You are wrong, the ps3 does have an audio chip, how about using google to go find the proof, cause u know, it is out there.

Wasnt it found that the X1 had a stronger CPU? Also that Ps4 had 8gb GDDR5 vs 8gb GDDR3 + 32MB ESRAM giving X1 more bandwidth? Also whats the impact of Direct 11.2x on x1?

I think many ppl on both fanboy sides exaggerate. Graphically i dont think its possible that in the next 10-15 years you will really see that much better unless you're talking about 4k gaming. Give me the best graphics pc game which most consider these: Crysis 3, Crysis 1, Modded Skyrim, Battlefield 3, Arkham City, Witcher 2 and the Modded GTA 4. After you look at these... its safe to say ps4 & x1 will approach those levels.

Besides theres not enough developers with gifted personnel to push the boundaries of the imagination or even the hardware in front of them. I would never have thought GTA5 would be possible on Ps3/x360

hello121068d ago

Sony fans never research and thats their problem. They hear their console is 50 per cent better and they think thats the truth. I don't knock the PS4 its a good console, just like the XB1

An article on Edge Online discusses just what these hardware differences mean, and that more raw power might not be enough to give Sony a big advantage in the next generation.

“DDR5 is basically 50 per cent more powerful than DDR3,” says Anton Yudintsev CEO of Gaijin Entertainment. “But the memory write is bigger on Xbox One. So it depends on what you’re doing. PS4 is more powerful, but you can’t just write to the memory, you need to read sometimes.”

“They maybe have a little more GPU,” says Lobb. “We have eSRAM [embedded memory] and crazy bandwidth to that eSRAM. Which is going to be better in the long run from a developer? We’re going to see as the games go head to head. A lot of it will come down to – as always – which exclusive teams push a piece of hardware best.”

These exclusive teams are the ones that are working with the first party games on both consoles. We aren’t likely to see huge differences in fidelity between third party games across both platforms, the major differences will be found on the games that are exclusive to each platform.

'maybe have a little more GPU'... there's no 'maybe' about it? Who is this 'Lobb' fellow? Off to do my research..

ed: Ken Lobb of Microsoft? For real? This is the guy we're quoting to vaguely suggest no empirical advantage to the PS4's hardware? With his quote sourced and placed, somewhat misleadingly ('mischievously' even) under a quote a far more sanguine one from a genuine third party software rep - with no mention that Lobb is an MS employee - to make it seem like an independents analysis. Not cool dude.

Hicken1068d ago

"8gb GDDR3 + 32MB ESRAM giving X1 more bandwidth?"

Yes, a higher peak theoretical bandwidth for 32MB at a time is DEFINITELY higher. 32MB at 196/s or 212/s or something obviously surpasses a full 8GB running at 176/s.

"but you can’t just write to the memory, you need to read sometimes."

I guess someone hasn't heard the PS4 can read AND write at the same time.

Magicite1068d ago

Shinji Mikami needs his eyes to be checked.

nypifisel1068d ago

Kinda makes no sense. What has changed lol? the 9% upclock isn't relevant in any way, I honestly don't get why they did it seeing how diminished the return is. Anyway it doesn't explain how a 9% cpu upclock can fill the 50% GPU gap lol

AngelicIceDiamond1068d ago (Edited 1068d ago )

@Beast

“We only need one console. Why do I have to make two versions of a game? And when Xbox One was first announced it had lower specs than PS4, but now they’re almost identical."

You missed this part.

"when Xbox One was first announced it had lower specs than PS4,"

Now that MS made the changes the X1. PS4 and X1 are nearly identical. According to him of course.

I'm not sure why the writer thinks its architecture when the guy clearly said X1 had lower specs at first.

Blaze9291068d ago

"almost identical" does not equate to "50% more powerful/faster"

...if such were the case, we would obviously see that with launch PS4 games vs Xbox One - but we don't.

Truth hurts, PS4 not as strong as you all believe it to be over the Xbox One. Only, the Xbox One has extra resources - the cloud.

nypifisel1067d ago

We do actually see it in launch games.. All PS4 titles with confirmed resolution is at 1080p. Xbox One only got 1 game as far as I know (Forza), and for that to even be possible they have no AA solution, pre-baked lighting, no day/night cycles and so on, not very impressive.

showtimefolks1068d ago

Fanboys are happy when they say this or that is more powerful, bottom lime is games count, and if Sony delivers like it did on ps3 than MS just won't be able to compete

It's amazing that most of Sony's big studios haven't even announced a game for ps4 yet and it's about to launch, than you take into affect that many of independent studios like ready at dawn are also working with Sony

Ps4 for ultimate gaming console
Xbox one more for entertainment and causal games on kinect

Both will succeed but both will target different audience

I'm more disturbed by the fact the guy keeps saying we only need one system. If you believe that then just develop for the PC. I'm a firm believer in competition though. I'm glad we have more than one.

In the future there will only be 1.

If they where able to bump specs in two weeks they wouldn't need 5 or 6 years to develop a console. A significant increase in performance will have all the engineers back to the drawing board.
Now to the resident evil creator... this is why your franchise is been death since RE4, cause you can even se the difference in features and exploit them(like kinect or the touch pad on the PS4 controller... he wants to convince him self he only needs one game for two consoles.... they don't want to make different experience for gamers that own 2 consoles. This is y why Capcom is behind many western developers.

He's a developer who's not exclusive to Sony so naturally he has to praise both systems.

GAME DEVELOPER: "both systems are pretty much the same...no biggie".

NERDS ON THE INTERNET: "This guy that does this for a living has no idea what he's talking about... The Ps4 is 190,000 times more powerful!!!!!!!!"
