Numbers don't lie
unless they are up-scaled ! lololol
Yeah those "1080p" numbers on the back of 360 boxes have been lying for years. MS is continuing that proud deceptive marketing tradition with XB1 and their fans seem to love it. *shrug*
Very clever comment ; D
@mystic the PS4 games are doing the same, specifically BF4 which has been confirmed as 900p although it says 1080p on the box
This is like a corvette vs porsche 911 comparison. http://www.edmunds.com/pors... Quote: "Making the Corvette as quick and rewarding as a 911 is a big task, and it's been fully accomplished. The Corvette, when driven hard, is as good as the 911, maybe better. There, we said it. That it costs, in this case, less than half as much is pure gravy. But then there's the undeniable reality that the 911 is the better car. Whether we're taking our kids to school or adding subtle countersteer to correct that big slide, we'd rather have the Porsche. It's the car that wins our hearts so it's the car that wins this test." --- (pretty much exactly like the ps4 vs xbo. This comparison is particularly apt because the ps4 costs less, yet reputedly has a bigger engine!) The takeaway point is that while the xbo has poise and balance, the ps4 has a big truck engine. who wins? well... the conclusion is there for all to see.
""Looking At Pure Numbers, PS4 is More Powerful" Than Xbox One" and in other news the sky is blue
at BBB...I can't say i agree with the two cars you used as an example...as the systems are too close in architecture... I'd say...the PS4 is a 911 GT3, the highest performing naturally aspirated version of the 911 line... the xbox one...is a base 911 with an overpriced back up camera... mine doesn't make much sense, either...because the gt3 is way more expensive...but, whatever ha...
@jack - Yeah Sony saw how many people didn't seem to care about the deception of upscaling and putting 1080p on the box, so they've adopted the same strategy. Luckily, PS4 won't have to do it as much as XB1 due to the power gap. Same goes for paying to play online. In both cases we have MS fans to thank.
And we will see those numbers in action in exactly an hours time when the embargo on PS4 game reviews ends.
"Numbers don't lie" M$ Do!
"Numbers Dont lie"... unless they are printed on the back of an xbone exclusive ! lololol I am sorry, I can't help it. lolol
No they don't lie. In fact, the numbers tell us just exactly what the devs have going for them. When you have a great platform to start with you can achive much more than if you have a subpar platform to start with that is incapable of 1080p at 60fps.
we already know this
Sometimes they do, look at insane uber-high end PC specs and the average graphics they output when compared to the PS3's specs and its respective output
no, not everyone knows this unfortunately. some people refuse to know
Key words here "Looking at pure numbers" How those numbers translate to the screen hasn't been an advantage and won't be Xbox One!
the pure numbers you be smoking be sending you crazy
Don't be mad Sony Yes Men y'all know I'm right Battlefield 4: Xbox One Need for Speed: Xbox One COD: Xbox One Looking at comparison videos you Xbox haters are coming up short The Sony goggles you are wearing are clouding your judgment I see the sacrifices for those extra pixels are less crisp images You dudes are like zombies lol
The pure numbers also posited the ps3 as three times as powerful as the 360. Of course, 8 years of games have proven these numbers to be somewhat incorrect. Not sure why people keep saying Sony has no marketing budget. It seems they have plenty of $$ to keep promoting plenty numbers FUD.
@lifeisgamesok You're right im going to take a trolls word of what actually programmers and people that have hands on with each machine and have tested them side by side, they say PS4 wins. Anyways i haven't seen anything remotely close to Killzone SF, coming from Xbox1. @BBBirdistheWord Really 3 times more powerful huh? Care to post a link, where Sony said it was 3 times more powerful? It came with 3 times more stuff thats for sure.
apologies. Sony did not state they were three times more powerful with ps3 than the 360. In fact they stated it was TWICE as powerful. Thanks for picking me up on that. Here's the link to this misrepresentation and various other furphies. http://www.se7ensins.com/fo...
Remain in denial, you will soon find out. Btw enjoy your sub 900p and sub 20fps dr3. @phil Http://dictionary.cambridge... :)
Sub 900p? They wish it was lol Its 720p with drops as low as 16fps!
Have fun playing just indies
Butthurt? Too bad we've already seen major differences on multiplats. And the consoles aren't even out yet.
Ya its like the dude with a souped up civic in a drag race with a charger .... Its not about the numbers ! * gets smoked by 5 lengths
1920x1080 are some real numbers that did translate onscreen. I don't know anyone who would buy a 720p TV(or up-scaled 1080p TV) with a native 1080p TV next to it for $100 cheaper and the same size. I play 3rd party games mostly and that is how the choice came down to me. I will get my XB1 when Halo is out, and it keeps 4 player local play, but saying there is no advantage is a little naive
just shut up ! stop making a fool of yourself dont you get embarrassed? your saying that this http://www.youtube.com/watc... looks better than.. http://www.youtube.com/watc... ahahaha of course, keep dreaming maybe santa will deliver you the dual gpu for christmas
So I guess you know more than all the devs that has confirmed PS4 is more powerful and did you happen to see the IGN video where they put the PS4 and XB1 CODG side by side and it was clear that the PS4 version had more detail have the opinion that you want but when you feel the need to call ppl names just shows your maturity level I guess all these devs are zombies too huh. Look if the low resolution of the xb1 is ok with you then fine don’t call Sony fans names because they are happy next gen we are not getting the short end of the stick like current gen if resolution is not a big deal to you then you will still have fun games to play so no need to be mad.
Yeah, we know.
So many devs speak out in favor of the PS4. But this is something IGN and the likes would never mention.
Ign, kotaku, polygon, all are biased sites. What more can you expect from them. Previous gen, even minor pixel differneces led to x360 being declared preferred platform by these sites, and now when the tables have turned, resolution doesn't matter anymore. Shame on this biased gaming journalism.
polygon is by far the worst in terms of bias, kotaku can't be taken seriously whomever their in favour with and IGN while they do try do gloss over the differences between the consoles if you ignore the content they put out for mainstream and just follow the content that is put out by the xbox and the ps4 editors you can still get some good info they will however always try to make it out like both consoles are equal
And that tradition is likely to continue! Considering they are saying the Xbox1 version of COD Ghost is better because it has a slightly more stable frame rate. Yet the PC is experiencing issues with frame rate, and is the best version of the game without a doubt.
Ign is the worst, all they do is lick sonys ass
True but trust me developers are still going for parity and that's the sad part. Only a fool would think they these pushing these consoles. Like all launches before them these games are all rushed. With that being said next gen starts next year.
Sorry to disagree with you, but I dont think devs are going for parity. Biggest example: Call of Duty Ghosts PS4: 1080p Xbox One: 720p I dont intend to start a flame war but both systems will have awesome exclusives but am sure you will see the difference in multiplats.
Also true I guess I'll see you ps4 lol. But what I'm saying is there just making there games slightly better on ps4. There not using all the extra power of the hardware. Look at it like this the gpu is all ready better than the Xbox one without the extra gcn cores, also two of the xb1 cores go to the kinect so that's 18 vs 10. Gddr5's advantage. I say what I say because I'm in school as we speak for graphics programming (it's only my 2nd year in) but needless to say there's no way in hell there using all that power. Ps4 games should run better by nature not just slightly better. The easy way out is to just give it a extra shine so people don't start to question your work and say you holding the stronger console back fact. Anybody thinking there pushing the ps4 is high because all that extra hardware would not only equal to a slight bump in resolution and a couple of extra frames fact.
ms biggest strength is software hardware sony got this
I don't know how long that will last. Sony will have some heavy hitting software soon.
he talking software meaning os not games
MS have a better variety of launch games (but not the BEST launch game IMO), but Sony will have the software too. They always do.
sorry but sony's first party exclusives this gen blew MS out of the water also they charge consumers for third part services. MS giving you another halo,forza or gears since 2009.
That OS system requirements might be the one thing that is stopping devs hitting that elusive 1080p
They usually come swinging hard with lusher software during launch,then climax shortly & fade out lol
Numbers are only a part of the equation however. Otherwise there would be no reason why the DS outsold the PSP or why the 3DS is outselling the Vita. Having a Ferrari is fine and all, but if all you can do with it is drive it on the city streets then it's kind of pointless. No doubt Sony will bring it this gen but just because it has better raw numbers doesn't automatically make it better.
Numbers aren't everything, but they sure are a huge part of the equation ( pun not intended). Your Ferrari analogy was cute but lacking. The Ferrari, in this sense, has the advantage. Cars are the system, and the RACE tracks are the games. The city streets, so to speak, are irrelevant in terms of games. Sony has the edge on multiplats and exclusives and has 95 % of the social aspects of the x1. So in other words, numbers are huge, and for the parts where horsepower doesn't matter, Sony has that covered as well.
lol, all I was trying to get across with the Ferrari analogy is that power is great, but if you don't have the ability to let it run through its paces, then it's wasted power. The games will showcase that additional power that the PS4 has over the XB1 no doubt. Numbers are nothing if you don't have the games to back it up. Although in this case, I think Sony is well covered in that department.
Okay I see what your saying. I just like analogies and puns haha
I hate when people say stuff like "looking pure numbers" or "on paper" PS4 is more powerful. How do we know if one PC or any electronic device for that matter is more powerful than the other? Looking at the specs. Just call it what it is.
Stop with these lame takes. How about we talk games and the cool shit we can do with them instead of another seven years of 'my console is more powerful.'
Release that dented blakc beast already!!
Its good to hear this from a dev.
Pure numbers do lie. This Xbox vs Playstation thing is the console equivalent of iPhone vs "Top" Android device that has been going on forever. Just looking at specs, anybody and their mother would pick Top Tier Androids hands down. Most of them have double the RAM, double the cores, some have double the res even! But that is definitely not what the actual experience with these devices convey. Software under the right circumstances can and will trump hard numbers.
In fairness, what many do not realize is that Android devices NEED the multicore processors and high clock speed just in order to run the OS properly. PPl tend to fall in love with numbers for their mobile devices, but Android is horribly glitchy and unstable. The other 2 OS out there in MP8 and iOS are very very stable and don't require all the latest processors. When you do a side by test the proof is there. I don't game on my phone, but I would think the better processors help with gaming.
Youre missing his point. in summary, pure power isnt necessarily what makes something the best option. People also seem to think that the sony software engineers are as good as the MS ones therefore PS4 will keep getting better and MS will always be catching up. Personally i think MS will catch up by helping devs with new engines that will run better on XBO then the devs will just port that to PS4. Now we have a current gen thing going on where everything looks basically the same except the PS4 exclusives
IMO. It doesn't hurt having a lot of raw powah. It increases the longevity/viability of the console & also gives devs a larger playing field. But a the end of the day. It's how well you implement that raw powah. You hear me ND
Nobody reads any more. "We didn’t have any contact with Xbox One, so it’s hard to compare both consoles. However, if you look at pure numbers it seems that PlayStation 4 is more powerful. Most games run better on PS4, with higher resolutions and FPS, so I’m pretty sure Sony did a better job at making a gaming console. Pure computing power is for sure an important factor for developers, but we should also remember how easy it is to access this power. Overall PlayStation 4 is a great and powerful tool. Our games are not that demanding on hardware as AAA titles, but we can see how well-engineered the PS4 is." this is a pure fankid article. We know the ps4 has power
yawn old news. Once again, buy what you want based on the experience you want and have fun with what ever console you choose.
Holy crap... How many fkn indie devs that ARENT working on the x1 want to talk about it?
It's all I'm seeing recently with these indie devs who are in articles like this. "Well, the PS4 is a BEAST! That being said, we've never even touched an Xbox One dev kit. Ummm ..." Yeah. I'm not exactly filled with confidence. Hence why I'll take hard numbers from folk like DICE with 720p vs 900p for BF4, but these indie devs working solely on PS4, have no multiplatform credibility in my eyes.
" Even though Basement Crawl is an indie title, nowhere near to AAA scale," "We didn’t have any contact with Xbox One, so it’s hard to compare both consoles." More indie love....lol So was the ps3 but never showed it. Now we have the same thing going on. PS4 is supposedly more powerful but xb1 has the better looking games. Its so funny how people eat up those words from indies devs who haven't laid a hand on both consoles.
You're wasting your time. Sony fans just ignore the fact the XB1 is more powerful console. Microsoft didn't sacrifice anything. Sony, PS4 is just a gaming machine, it's specs's reflect that. Microsoft went with ESRAM-FLASH MEMORY and DDR3 because their UI was lot more sophisticated. They couldn't use GGDR5 because it wouldn't have helped with what they had planned. Sony UI is basic. So far, the games haven't looked all that different from one another. There is a reason for that, both machines use AMD hardware. Sony fans are just being delusional, if they think the PS4 is 50 per cent better, if that was the case multiplats would be so different from each other, it would be scary. But no that ain't the case is it!
"We didn’t have any contact with Xbox One, so it’s hard to compare both consoles."
Man! I should have done my senior thesis on "the gamer" so many subjects to manipulate! Do you know if you do not drink water you die? Oooooooooh!
