Watch a new video showing a boot time comparison between PS4 and Xbox One.
Man, people will find anything to compare. If the PS4 took 5 minutes to boot up and the X1 took 30 seconds, would anyone NOT have bought a PS4? People just looking for stuff to compare and make an argument for which is better. "yea well I get Titanfall." "well my PS4 boots up in less time" winner lol
Biased much? This has nothing to do with an unreleased game which may or may not be the new "cod" PS4 saves you an hour for every 20 boots. Whilst this is not really important it's still nice information to have.
are we factoring in the reduced boot time for the PS4 for vita users who want to boot there consoles up and have there game of choice launched and ready to play before they get home? or if they don't feel like waiting until they get home and they have a solid internet connection they can play it on the go.
"PS4 saves you an hour for every 20 boots." I can't play the video right now but I'm pretty sure you miscalculated something. It would mean the PS4 boots 3 minutes faster then the X1.
Yes batman you are correct 20 boots will save you just over 10 minutes. I am not usually so stupid with numbers :/
@stsonic. Umm 20 boots saves 1 hour? WHAT kind of maths is that.
My comment wasn't meant to be "Titanfall rules thats why you should buy an X1, PS4 sucks." I meant it like, who buys a system based on boot time? I just used Titanfall as an example that people buy systems for the games, not the boot time. That's my bad for not being clear.
The only thing I'm getting from this whole boot time articles is that each and everyone of them is getting different results... WTF is wrong with this? Do these guys don't know how to read/operate a stopwatch or what?
OMG god bless you @VENOMACR1227 #1 someone who finally get's it and thinks like a human being and not some sad specimen. Let's be friends because you are normal and think as such also. These people under the stairs or stuck in front of the screen zombies will eat you for stating that fact.
you humans think weird! cause in my world Titanfall isn't exclusive to x1.
It's exclusive to MS. I love how people act like it's not an exclusive jut because PS4 isn't getting it. Anyways, my point wasn't that Titanfall is greatest game ever, it was that games make the system, not the boot time. Was just an example using a game.
Yeah we know....you are gonna play it on PC Or better yet...you dont give a f#@k
I would love for someone to explain how Microsoft owning Windows = Microsoft owning the PC market too. Would LOVE to hear that farce, I mean legitimate explanation.
We could debate on which console got the best games for hours, but let's be honest, both consoles got great games to play. So the choice comes with the hardware for now. For me, since I already have a great PC for gaming, I prefer more performance for the price when getting a console. Maybe I got spoiled by the PC graphics over the years.
Well i can get titanfall for the pc with 1080p.
While I agree that it's a bit much to compare boot times (I didn't even watch the vid), your comment ends on a petty note, as if PS4 only has a boot time and doesn't have games like Uncharted 4, Gran Turismo 7, The Order, and Infamous SS coming to it.
Last gen the justifications for why one system was better than another were insane for a long time. Trivial things such as boot up times and OS streamlining (not functionality...streamlining) were arguments and I believe even bootup times for both the machines and games were "reasons why I can't buy a PS4" while free vs paid online gaming and multiple disc changes - another trivial argument - were largely ignored. They're all fruitless. And don't get PC people started, either :p
Your tears are delicous.
Well, that was dumb.
xbox one boots up in stand by faster
Yeah, it's surprising how the PS4 boot time vs it's standby time is basically the same. Having said that, there's no excuse for a 1 minute boot time on the Xbox One, not everybody wants to increase their energy bills by leaving the console on standby.
not sure if you pay bills , but do you know what .22 watts cost ? lmao
@fanta, you'd be suprised at how energy sensitive some console gamers are.....it amazes me hkw cheap these people are.... It would take four ps4 on full load to come near my pc on power consumption, things a monster
I've theory why that might be .... Kinnect is always listening, even in standby, so the Xbox is probably more powered up when in standby than the PS4 is. It's only a theory though, don't jump on me :)
on standby the xbox does consume a bit more due to kinect being on standby also ... its like 15 watts vs. 8 watts(ps4)
3 people disagreed. errrrm HOW? it was in the vid. I have a ps4 and I have to say it does. odd balls
My ps4 boots from cold in 10secs stand by less then 5
Seriously? Who cares. I was more interested in the Nokia Windows phone ad. I think I might just go with a Nokia next time.
I've had 920 since launch. I'll never go back to another OS.
920 is great phone... can't wait to see what is coming out next year when my contract is up.
Never had a Lumia, but I have been a WP supporter going back to WM. WP is outstanding. In the 2.5 years I have been using the OS, it has never crashed once. Not one time.
I think that good things are on the way for WM and Nokia. Windows 8 seems to be catching on finally and is starting to displace android on mobile platforms (more on tablets than anything but it is coming). I read a report on Forbes I think that was saying it looked like it would move ahead of android by 2015 if its growth continued. People can bash windows but it sure is convenient to have it on all of your platforms.
PC Windows's days are numbered.
Both are very slow. My PC needs 16 seconds
Your PC is also slow, mine takes 8 seconds. Edit: If you have a good SSD (connected correctly) and disable all the start up screens from the BIOS, its possible.
Wow, that sounds fast. Is that even possible? You are right. My PC is slow. EDIT: Thank you. I'll try it.
Mine boots in 5 seconds.
PC fight. Let's get it on. Makes a change from the fan boys lol
Depends what sleep state you're using, S3, S4 or maybe even hybrid. But with an SSD it'll be fast, like you said. Booting from cold on a pc, has too many variables to take into account. Many of which are windows, software and driver related. Little to do with the bios. Although some start up screens will slow it a couple of seconds, granted. If people feel they are losing a few seconds of their life because of a slower boot-up time, then maybe your life is filled with too many empty, dull moments ;-)
4 seconds new Linux Mint install Toshiba Q SSD.
How fast does it boot naughty dog games?
Faster than the Xbox one because they are unfortunate and don't get those great games. :)
@mister_dawg, or maybe my life is so extreme and fast pace I dont wanna lose a second of it
My w8 pc boots in 6 Edit: its actually 8.43 seconds
27,93 secs. sounds pretty awesome.
My PC is faster than that..so I'm not getting any consoles..lol
Same. Only reason for me to even consider buying a console was that I thought it would boot faster than my PC. /s
Not getting a console because boot times are a few seconds longer? Haha, thanks for a good laugh.
It's only just beginning, lol. We have a full week of this.
My PS4 booted from stand-by in 25sec. Recorded it last night. The system was a bit cold since I had just powered it on. I'll check the power up time today.
The xb1 has more going on with the OS of course it will take a bit longer than the PS4. If the PS4 OS had all the features of the xb1 it would take a bit longer too.
lets just thank fuck this gen we dont have to wait years for our systems to start up, yay!
i would like to see standby boot for both console as well.
Its in the video. From standby, the XBone is faster
