PS4 VS. XBOX One: Console Specs

From RAM to CPUs, IGN runs down the tech that's powering the games of the next-generation. Which console is best for you?

The story is too old to be commented.

Specs? What specs? They didnt talk about the throughput, bandwith, clock speed, etc...

Pope_Kaz_Hirai_II1655d ago

I would like to run this by some people incase they dont know or forgot..

PS2: Was able to do 1080i in single races in GT4 which is more or less 720p

Original Xbox: Was capable and could do 720p
XBOX360: 720P 98% of the time
Xbone: 720P Mostly so far....

Quite the evolution in hardware there MS.

How can this video be called a spec comparison?

inf3cted11655d ago

Thats not a spec comparison, thats just you bashing the xbox.

DialgaMarine1655d ago

@inf3cted I always find it humorous when listing a fact is called bashing. XBone games, with the exception of Forza 5 and a bunch of XBLA titles, are all sub 1080p. The system is still running resolutions that previous systems were doing years ago. It's looking less and less like a genuine next gen console everyday because of it.

Eonjay1655d ago

Are they embarrassed to talk about the real specs.
We all understand that most games will be on both platforms. So be honest and tell us which system will play those games better.

We visit their site because we like to play games.
I don't give a damn about talking to my TV. Which system will give me better games?

You bring up some interesting points. The dreamcast even offered the ability to upscale grahics through a dvi port if I'm correct (rgb?) And games like soul calibur looked incredible. Even after 7 years, we cannot get games to be native 1080p. and this not to just bash the x1 . some games will not be 1080p on the ps4. When I look at how the ps2, a dinosaur of a system, was able to do 1080i, it just bothers me that games like dead rising does 70p 30fps. As gamers we should all be generally concerned.People who dislike this should spend 500 on an Atari 2600. I know...douche baggery ..forgive me

Beastforlifenoob1655d ago

1080i is not "more or less 720p"
1080i is "more or less" 1080p, 1080i and p are nearly the same.

You forgot to add "sponsored by microsoft" after the link.

Magicite1655d ago

What to say, Pathetic! :D

Gaming1011654d ago

1080i is not "more or less 720p". It pushes 1080 pixels interlaced. 1080p is progressive scan, it's a different way of displaying pixels that takes more processing power, thus only higher end hardware can run it ie. PS4.

Most people care about what it does not how it does it , feels like the conversation over the past week has been hijacked by high end pc spec whores . I'm glad the media is keeping us focused on what is important , not minor differences in hardware .

Hicken1655d ago

Where do you get your information? What survey told you how many people care about what?

Good job of downplaying the spec differences as "minor" so the XB1 doesn't look as bad. Sad to say, though, it looks bad anyway.

mistertwoturbo1655d ago

Lol minor difference in hardware? This is by far one of the biggest gaps in hardware history.

bleedsoe9mm1655d ago (Edited 1655d ago )

look crazy fanboys , if you want to argue that purchasing a ps4 over an xbox one makes sense because of the $40 difference in price (when you make them feature comparable by adding in the eye camera) you've got a very good point . but the resolution over game play is a bad argument , and using allot of made up numbers (until these retail consoles get out and can be independently tested) is just plain stupid .

RyuCloudStrife1655d ago

So you agree that PS4 is better hardware and then try to say X1 has better gameplay? Are you kidding me?

bleedsoe9mm1655d ago

@RyuCloudStrife who said the xbox one is better , certainly not me , just that the bashing on that point is meaningless

Hicken1655d ago

Your brain's not working right. It can't be.

What gameplay is being sacrificed in the PS4 version of games for graphics? Just name me ONE gameplay feature the XB1 version of Battlefield or COD has that the PS4 version is lacking.


I don't understand how you MS fanboys can keep trying to turn this into an either/or debate, when the argument is that you get BOTH with the PS4, and only the gameplay on XB1.

As for made up numbers... I'm gonna go to the three stores nearest my house tomorrow, get the preorder numbers- cuz I'm on good terms with all the store managers- and post those numbers, along with the store number and phone number tomorrow.

Then you can check for yourself to see if they're made up or not. I know you won't, but unlike you Xbox fanboys, I come with quantifiable stuff, or at least enough sound reasoning to make a solid argument.

If bashing is meaningless, then it's even more meaningless that you and others keep trying to deny the damn truth that's right there in front of you. And it's annoying as hell that you keep trying to tell others that what you say is, instead, true.

That video:
"The cloud... more detailed environments..."


It can do things to support games indirectly, but not improve graphics.
After all these months I thought everyone on Earth knew that. Especially game journalists. Oh wait...

Only thing I learned from this video is that the XOne has 1 extra usb 3 port.

Oh! quick Q for you guys: will both run DirectX11.2? Most likely. I should just google it.

EDIT: 11.1 for XOne and 11.2 for PS4. Odd since MS is making DX11.

MadSientist891655d ago (Edited 1655d ago )

sony fanboys have been trashing xbox since the reveal.. even after the 180 sony bots flock to any negative news on xbox and nitpcik everything.. then you have idiots that think GT6 looks better than forza 5.. like wow O.O

DigitalRaptor1655d ago (Edited 1655d ago )

GT6 looks stunning, but let's face it. Forza 5 also looks stunning although it's not a huge leap from Forza 4. And let's talk about that downgrade in terms of content and features that Forza is known for. GT6 is a better value proposition and looks like a better game, so to some people it might look better.

It just makes me wonder, what Turn 10 must've sacrificed to get it looking and running like it does. Either that, or it's been rushed out for launch and they're selling you an incomplete game.

Chaostar1655d ago

Typical sugar coated semi-information mixed with popular opinion fluff from IGN.

Seems more like an idiots guide than anything truly informative.

Bigpappy1655d ago (Edited 1655d ago )

It is for the average person not the tech savvy. This is exactly what they will see in flier at the stores and retail online sites.

Everything they said is true by the way.

Chaostar1655d ago

Then they shouldn't really have called it a "console specs" video, since they didn't really go into many specifics.

RevXM1654d ago

Like the DDR5!
Its GDDR5.

And this video blew, If I were a moron Id think the Xbox one was better with the external HDD support coming, all the fancy I/O and wizardry cloud technology. Surely seemed like this video was trying to make the ONE look very good.

xXxSeTTriPxXx1655d ago

That ad money hard at work.

SpinalRemains1381655d ago

Yeah this was as useful as a poopy flavored lollipop.

Naga1655d ago

I'm giving you a bubble because you used the word "poopy".

Let's get ready to rumble!
