Meet the Xbox One creator, Boyd Multerer, who confesses to be extremely proud of the console's multi-layered architecture.
U might be but certain gamers aren't
I'd say most gamers at this point. Just a hunch.
i'm happy with it and i'd say the very high majority of the over 3 mil who have the console are aswell
"Most gamers" don't give a s*** about a consoles architecture.
I'd think 'most'is a stretch the xb1 is selling fine, and most gamers don't know shit about architecture...
Actually the architecture doesnt bother me as much as the direction and policies. Xbone is a nice ship with a rotten captain.
I don't Care because I don't plan on buying it.
Wait so he's proud that his architecture limits devs :/.
Aftermoth getting agrees is sickening. The other guy gets flagged for personal attack, crazy. Also, 'most gamers don't give a shlt about architecture' ya serious, its all people have been bitching about here since both consoles announced....
Of course he is gonna say that he is proud of his work LOL! No one wants to get fired for creating failure...
Aslong as Xbox One is getting games i will be playing them!
Speak for yourself ONLY!
Because no one would ever like a Next-Gen Console that looks like a VCR.
I have both consoles and I have NO problem with the Xbox One, I'm glad I bought it. I like the cinematic games from Sony but I love playing online with the Xbox and I buy my games accordingly.
Gamers don't care about architecture - they care about games. Whether or not you personally like them or find them superior or inferior to those available elsewhere is irrelevant.
Xbox One can't even handle a last-gen game in 60 fps. If you ask me, i'd say the Xbox One is barely next gen. It's better than the Wii U, but not by enough to justify moving on from 360 to XBONE. The PS4, however, is a reasonably good enough leap for next gen (especially with beauties like "Infamous Second Son"). Lol I don't even know how Xbox One is gonna handle real next gen games like "The Division".
Its obviously can handle the game since it is coming to the system. Ubisoft isnt gonna release a bad looking game
Smh...that's all I can do when I read immature comments like this. And what is with the LOL before your last sentence? I'm trying to picture someone laughing while saying that and it's not a good picture that comes out.
You do realize the dev stated that the game "slows down" for the ps4 also. It's not a solid 60fps.
Power is the only thing that determines next gen then? Previous great consoles were never next gen then such as ps1,ps2 and wii.. Doesn't come down to games?
I agree that the Xbox One is disappointing in power, especially after Microsoft got the crown with the first Xbox and was able to fight evenly during the last generation even though PS3 came out a year later. This time, it was a mess though.
The circle jerk around here is sickening. I have an XBOX One and am really happy with it. Everyone I know that has one likes it as well. I am getting a PS4 here in a few days as well. I game because I like to game. Not because I am a fan of a piece of plastic and metal. I won't be able to play Halo 5 on my PS4 and I won't be able to play Uncharted 4 on my XBOX One, pretty simple shit here. I have a gaming PC that wipes the floor with both of them combined. Why can't we just enjoy gaming for gaming and leave the fanboy/girl shit at the door?
Circle jerk? Look how many Agrees Xbox fans are getting compared to the Disagrees. I'd say the playing field is evening out.
I have always envied those lucky folks who owns PCs that does various household chores for them such as: wiping floors using other electronics devices such as PS4 and XBoxes etc. At least the wife would no longer nag me about the damn dirty floor Or sometimes they even "Blow things out the water", which might be useful in a sinking ship come to think of it. Sorry guys, I was thinking out loud. Carry on
@Frag...I'm with you. I have an Xbox One and just purchased a PS4 last night. I like them both yet I constantly have to defend purchasing the Xbox One from little kids that spend the day trashing it. @WeAreLegion...Maybe the tide is turning. That sure would be nice because it has been out of control for quite some time. Real gaming news goes to the back while Xbox/Microsoft trashing is front and center every damn day. I ALMOST didn't get the PS4 because of their annoying fanboys. I hope to not run into too many of them on PSN.
I take it you are not impressed with 4 duplicate stories on the top of N4G then. That's the problem with some of the more hardcore Sony fans, they always feel the need to dominate and nothing is ever good enough if it's not on their chosen system. I skipped the PS4 at launch mostly due to the people here in N4G that do nothing but beat their chest about how great the system is and trash the competition. They think they are helping Sony out, but in reality it turns many people off. When a couple good games hit the system that I like I am sure I'll get one, but I am in no hurry.
Then people can't bitch, it more fun to spread bull. Sign of the times.
I dare say, If the Xbox One had the same hardware specs as PS4 but used the same OS, Arch, and DX11 API, it would outperform the PS4 noticeably!
What? No. The OS makes the One run even slower so no it wouldn't perform better then PS4 if they both had the same specs. It would be equal or slightly less.
I dare say you would be wrong!
What? lol ok... You guys are in such denial and have no idea what you are talking about when it comes to software. Please explain why not? PLEASE!
The problem is people will not let these machines settle in. Let the Devs get a year or two on the xbox one. It will start showing how great the system is.
i dare say that my cable box is better than your cable box
It isn't offensive. What I said is 100% truth. Most parents love their kids no matter what their kids struggle with.
That kind of comparison is not acceptable. This is a video games website.
A neighbour down my road has a son with learning difficulties. He can't pronounce his words clearly, he has difficulty with his hand to eye coordination and he gets frustrated because it means he doesn't win when racing the other kids. But bless his kind mum because she can see all the effort he puts into everything he does. She has said of him "I am extremely proud of him."
Wonder if he is proud that he achitecture cant run a last gen game(Tomb Raider) at 60fps? My guess is no.
I've been gaming since 1976 & Pong, yes, they did it right. Sunday I played Forza 5 & watched the Broncos Patriots game. It was great. Also, with TitanFall & Halo 5 on the way lets me know they covered games & entertainment. Also, Quantum Break, Plants vs Zombies, Project Spark, Fable Legends, Kinect Sports Rivals releasing in 2014, is proof they have the gamer in mind. The quickness of the switching between tv, games, snap, skype, I can go on all day. This is a well thought & made console. My family loves the X1.
Keep having fun, forget all the crap here. That's the sign of a true gamer and family fun. Game on.
What do gamers know besides arguing their fanboyism?
Father is proud of its child? Oh what a surprise!
"Xbox One's Creator: "I'm extremely proud of the architecture"" Did anybody expect him to say bad things about his architecture ? The problem with the X1 is that it's not specifically designed to be a gaming console. It's a box that does everything... but doesn't do anything specially well.
Could you imagine if he said it was the worst thing he ever made? (Not that I think its the worst thing, I rather like my X1)
next time put more effort in it, the power supply could be included in the box if you really want to call it a "all-in-ONE" product. 1 console +1 power supply/brick +1 camera +1 cable box its far to be "all-in-one" when you need 3 more things near plugged into it.
But I like external power supplies, provided the supply isn't too big. When it breaks I can just get another. And yes Power supplies do break alot, especially with my power provider. I place it behind the monitor anyway so I won't see it, so I don't really see the problem to it.
Power supplies break a lot? Are you absolutely sure about that?
I'd suggest investing in a surge suppressor if you're having that many problems with your power supplies.
Where do you live? In a trailer park?
What......the...hell. My pc is turning ten this year same power supply since day one...my ps2 still has the same power supply since day one. It is probably the least likely part to break.
Wow, attack of the fanboys much? Yes powersuplies break, and quite often if you are in a very old city who's power lines and distribution stations are old as well. The power provider also makes mistakes, but relay stations mostly surge or burn through causing surges. But thank you for calling someone trailer trash and other nice things. Again.. Sony Fanboys are allowed to say whatever they like here.. but if you even point at them they whine like small children. I bet you can report this one as a "personal attack" as well. Just because Americans don't have cities older then 250 years, doesn't mean we in Europe are equally undeveloped. When these power lines and distribution stations where laid down and build they had to take into account the city's planning and room they had. They did so with the electric requirements that was normal in that day and age. For that same reason I can't get an Internet Connection over 12mbps. Seriously it is a bloody small power supply that comes with my Wii U? I put it behind my monitoring a place where you don't even see it. Why is THAT such a red cloth on your fanboy rage?
I like a module system, that you can replace the part that fails on the fly. Today everything is throw and buy a new system.
Power supply isn't part of the architecture.
lolwut. "architecture" include more than what's on the main pcb
For starters a decent gpu would have benefited them the most.
This article is going to explode OT:Kinda hope that at least he would proud of it. If the lead architect isn;t confident then i don't know who would be...
And I'm proud of purchase Boyd. :-) really happy about my x1
i'm not...nor am i impressed
If you purchased one, then take it back, stick it on ebay...get a refund??? Instead of whining like a baby on here!
i haven't....which is why my comment makes sense and yours doesn't i'm hoping a must have exclusive comes out that makes the purchase worth while....so far, it hasn't. the specs don't impress me either....not sure why you have hurt feelings about it
Double Post (site acting up)
@ snookiegamer If he has genuinely bought an XB1 and hasn't enjoyed the experience he has just as much right to post his experiences as anybody else. Why are you so eager to censor any negative views?
My mate bought an Xbox one first on launch day because he couldn't wait for the ps4, sold it a week after getting a ps4. We all used it, it was not a fun experience it took far too long to even find the settings menu. It was just bad.
"We all used it, it was not a fun experience it took far too long to even find the settings menu. It was just bad." - I just said, "xbox, go to settings," and lo and behold, there they were...
I love my X1 wouldnt change my purchase ever. One of the things that i love more then anything is the commitment MS has in bringing games to the console. The exclusive lineup is probably the best in gaming that we know of. Quantum Break, DR3, Forza, Sunset Overdrive, TitanFall, Halo, Poject Spark, MS is putting a HUGE amount of money into black tusk, Fable. To top it Phil already said couple days ago that they have more titles to even announce just at E3. This is beyond amazing.
Whatever let's you sleep at night bro.
have fun playing infamous for a year before your next decent game comes out lol. Everyone knows PS4 is seriously lacking in the exclusives, all that needs to be said.
@Bangin Seriously, you are playing the exclusive card?! After the last three years regarding Microsoft and exclusives of value to the 360? Apparently exclusives don't matter to Xbox fans, so don't expect to be taken seriously.

Hope u realize sony hasn't even announce most of their games that r being made from first party devs while MS pretty much has. And have fun with ur exclusive while it last cause I'm sure MS will milk them to no end and not make anymore new ips I would say 2 years from now. While we keep enjoying the best exclusives and new ips every few years sony makes and also the fact that all games from 3rd party will look and run better on PS4. I'll be getting a X1 when it's 200$ manly cause I'm a sucker 4 any exclusive JRPGS as that's only reason I got the 360 in the first place. I wish people would shut up about ps4 not having exclusive when clearly it's only the beginning and more will come later date. Plus if u look online more games r in development for PS4 then X1 and sony still has more exclusive they can make 4 PS4 as they can always make sequels like GT7 GOW4 TLOU2 already infamous SS LBP3 already UC4 and many more. I'm glad MS is trying to make new ips 4 the console instead of just buying time DLCS games and so on cause let's face it 360 only lived by 3rd party support and slightly better online connections.
