If we accept that the PlayStation 4 is the more capable machine, do Xbox One owners care one way or the other? Does it really make a big difference?
Some might but won't admit it.
You're damn right they care. Most of them can't shut up about DX12 and "teh cloudz". Anyone who says they don't care is either blind or delusional.
The only people who care are those who are not satisfied with their purchase. There are millions of satisfied gamers on both sides of this "war" who don't give two sh*ts, because at the end of the day they are happy with the games they get to play.
@John Not all of us care. It really comes down to exclusives. Exclusives that everyone loves as well as new exclusive Ip's that's only seen on that console from each of their own different 1st party muscle known for different genre's and tastes. As well as certain features and services that's not seen on the other console. At the end of the day its better just to have both if you can afford it.
haha sound like your getting trolled
@AngelicIceDiamond Of course, it comes down to the games themselves. But, obviously anyone would rather it have more power behind it as well.
People who play Xbox one should not worry about what the PS4 being more powerful. It's the PC users who care about not having the latest and greatest GFX card or CPU and constantly have to upgrade or forever know that their system is inferior to someone else's.
Good Lord, if you're not bashing one you're bashing the other. I'm a PC user with a GPU from 2010 (GTX 580) and I have not been stricken with envy yet. I only worry about being able to play the latest and greatest at reasonably high settings in 1080p. From all the talk around here it's obvious which camp is more concerned about graphics and any perceived inferiority. The denial is strong.
Drive Club is 1080p 30fps: on PS4. Moto GP is 1080p 30fps: on PS4. Forza Motorsport 5 is 1080p 60fps: on XBOX ONE. Soon, the PS4 must stop Talking about Power; and display it on screen for the public to experience it.
Resolution and frame-rate alone don't justify power. A dev could make a pong game at those specs and it doesn't mean jack s***. Forza 5 is only 1080p and 60 frames because it downgraded in multiple areas to achieve that.
Hahahaha!!! No really that was a joke. Right??
Soon? It already showed it when MGSV managed to run at 1080p60fps on the PS4 while it only managed 720p on the X1. If we're talking racing games, SlightlyMad already achieved 1080p60fps on the PS4 for Project Cars. Youd better hope they do the same on X1.
You do realize Forza has an audience made of pictures and no day/night cycle among other things. That's why it was able to achieve 1080p/60fps.
Comments like these prove that some Xbox fans do care. :I
Forza 5 is hands down the best driving game ever made it really is that good and it looks awesome
@otherzinc have you seen the difference in graphics for those games? Forza had to down scale to achieve that. It loses hands down.
Lol.. Ya forza downscaled everything! Except the cars, the tracks and the gameplay... But ya... When the sun doesn't move during a 5min race, that really pisses me off :/ And when I stop racing to go look at the crowds, boy what a let down.. Lol.. You guys are too much..
might be true but at least they don't troll every article known to man just to justify their purchase. I own both so no fanboyism here. everywhere I go theres always a Sony fan downplaying xbox even though the article has nothing to do with Sony.
I see way more PS4 fans talking about the power difference than Xbox fans. And by talking, I mean repeatedly shoving it in Xbox fans' faces while still holding back tears of last generation when the evil Xbox fans made fun of them because of blades of grass being missing and some texture pop-in. Seriously, the victim card is so played out at this point, that you would think that Sony fans had hate crimes committed against them. But as to caring - I'm sure that some wish that they had more power on paper, but the general consensus of owners is that they are happy with their purchases. You can enjoy a product on its own merit instead of continually comparing it to something similar - and that goes for whether yours is "better" or "worse".
Why would they if buying a PS4 doesn't even interest them?
Lol. Have you seen the threads on here regarding every supposed increase in XBO performance in hoping to somehow close the gap? They'd never admit it, but they care
I get annoyed when people say "In the end it's all about the games" That's true but doesn't mean that hardware should be completely ignored, it actually means the opposite.
You're right it shouldn't be ignored, but when people say the hardware makes a game "better", the same game might I add, that's when the conversation just turns sour and nothing is discussed. Plus, you get people that blindly defend a piece of hardware and get pissy about it.
Why. The Neogeo was the most powerful console when it was released. Yet no body bought it. Why? High price and NOT ENOUGH GAMES. The Wii outsold PS3 and 360. Both way more powerful. Why? Wii had a unique gaming experience. Don't get annoyed because people aren't playing there console anymore when they find out yours has more power. X1 actually has a better offering of game at the moment. So while you love reading comments of your superior power, others are playing and enjoy their better selection of games (Which I think is ultimately the best reason to buy a gaming console). I would have preferred that the X1 was closer to the PS4 in power right out the box though. But I still prefer X1 over PS4, because it gives me a sense of comfort, as the to others were well supported and M$ always comes up with new exciting things to do with the console. I gets me mad when they seem to sure of their direction, because that is what attracts me to Xbox. They keep it exciting.
You forgot to say in your opinion. because everything you said is your opinion, not fact.
Great, now that we know this is really just your opinion.
Interesting point of view. So let me get this straight. This gen the cheaper, more powerful, and easier to develop for system is also winning in sales... Weird. Looks like we as gamers are starting to get smarter.
They don't care about power that is why they bought the Xbox One over the PS4.
ATM I'm more interested in the games on the xbox one, that's why im getting it first.
Better yet....do Wii U fans even care that the Xbox One and PS4 are both more powerful?
i don't care because the difference is not that big in power and also enjoy the xbox games more then my ps4 .
The xbox has better games so thats Pretty much all that matters. But even so, ryse is still the best looking next gen game. So this power diffrrence could be mere folklore for all i know.
it is folklore . this is fact . 50% more powerful lol what a joke . oh i'm playing ryse and i can say this ; its an amazing graphical masterpiece if this is the quality at launch wow can't wait to see what they do next on xbone . underrated big time thats all i'm saying .
*The xbox has better games so that's pretty much matters* that's a laugh! oh, you do realize that most games that it has on it are multiplats right? i swear you xbox fans are so damn delusional! from cloudz, to DX12, which i doubt it'll do anything but make the gpu faster, but that's it! nothing special. DX12 only benefits a PC which i do think so myself! that's where it'll shine, not on xbox. BTW, if you claim that it has better games, how come microsoft denied a game company from releasing a game on because it doesn't fit well to what they're looking for? yeah, that's some system there! PS4 and PC forever.
You do know the Xbox has more exclusive AAA games ATM....
you sir live in a dream world .... only over a year to go now hold on to your words :) . xbone has more aaa games lol you really are far gone . dx12 to boost only pc's lol ok expert . how about this ps4 software was more ready on launch then xbone .. xbone is designed with tiled resources , dx12 and the cloud in mind so future proofed . just maybe HALO 5 will be using it in full swing because it comes out around the same time :) . enough of this . i'm looking forward to testing the big update come to xbone next month with over 1400 changes wow!.
this power diffrrence could be mere folklore for all i know. COD:Ghost [email protected] [email protected]+FPS Folklore my arse.
Give it a break Majin. My Alienware gaming rig does that game at [email protected] doesn't make it play any different.
The consoles haven't even been out for a year, soon enough Sony will release all these amazing exclusives like last gen and microsoft will release maybe 2 or 3 here and there.
When Ryse hits the dizzying heights of the high teens in framerate, does it feel more cinematic? Most things can look good but dropping so low to achieve this? Lol no, just no.
I've got both so who cares. They are both 8-10times more powerful than the previous forms so it's not as if they are a downgrade. In reality ps4 is only about 15-20% more powerful and it's going to be along time before we see the best come out of both graphic wise. Good looking games shall come from both and at the end of the day it will come down which consoles exclusive that you like.
They do, that's why they latch on at the thought that XBO will close the performance disparities... The fanatics do anyway.
I'll wait until MSFT releases system software that wasn't slapped together in a rush before paying this claim in this article any attention. XB1 isn't even using its hardware as fully as PS4 does so these kind of claims are premature. I'm not saying PS4 won't "naturally" pull away but as of now XB1 isn't even on the same playing field when it comes to devs having full access to hardware. By the time PS4 "naturally" makes gains it won't even matter due to DX12 advancements and Azure. No one asked this question at the beginning of last generation based on the 1st wave of games. Pro Sony sites are comical at times. BTW DX12 will allow the console to leapfrog its competition with end results. IMO the gap will close and go back and forth graphically in a year(at least with exclusives) but XB1 will pull away with games using CPU(CPU controls GPU) with its faster clocked CPU, Hardware based tiled resources(PS4 software tiled) and Azure allowing devs to have 4 times the CPU performance of XB1 alone. Games like BF5 will have physics on the XB1 no other console will be able to pull off.
Do you honestly believe what you just wrote? You honestly think that a sofware upgrade is going to trump hardware advantages? And what, sony wont do any software revisions either? You live in a land not many come from my friend, you can pretend that a software update and cloud is going to close the gap but it wont, and do you know what? It does not even matter, as long as micro provide the games then thats all that matters. @ greens edit, mate you are starting to sound like that clown misterx or whatever he calls himself, there will be no leap frogging and your cloud is not going to increase anything by 4, get over the fact that the ps4 has more power and move on, its really not going to stop you from enjoying the games, I would quess you are a grown ass man so start acting like one.
You think Developers Are using PS4 at full while not on the XBO? I'm dying with laughter! I'm sorry but this is the most outrageously deluded comment I've ever read on here! A wall of No sense what so ever!
Thats basically what I was trying to say lol, I just dont get some people they cling to these things like they are true just for it to be rubbished, secret sause, extra gpu, xbox wont be sold without kinect, the list goes on, if they could just put all that energy into discussing games then this site would be a much better place, that goes for all fanboys, not just micros.
You really don't understand hardware do you...
*fACEPALM* http://youtu.be/YpuRcmPnSTM People shouldnt speak on stuff they have no clue on.
And here's one of the many that does care, proving it with his comment. A couple of others are in here, too, claiming neutrality when their responses elsewhere indicate otherwise. You're damn right Xbox fans- cuz not all of them are owners- care.
I can honestly say the power diffrence does not bother me, its always about the games, but when you have peps like green spreading a load of bs, they are going to get corrected, by fanboys and neutral gamers alike.
the best thing people can do is report your comments as trolling because everything you write is exactly that. complete delusion.
POG POG POG! What are we to do with you? For years and years you scribble nonsense because of your lack of technical knowledge and understanding, and now another belting example! I'll say this once more to you. DX12 is not going to do the things you do painfully expect it to. The 10% increase in CPU freq means not a great deal. Devs are getting more out of the PS4 CPU due to less overheads. Now, what about that 50% more powerful GPU the PS4 has? Compute on PS4 will yield an even greater gap! Do you even know what it is and how it works?! You have flip flopped for years and years and now you are doing once more. Your comments a year ago were pure comedy gold! And to anyone else, yes me MPOG frequents Mistermedia (iMad on N4G) and regularly posts. No wonder he comes out with these silly comments. I feel sorry for you, I always have. See you at the next Face Off.
Mr X is that you? You of course are allowed to believe what you want! But a statement like "Leapfrog the competition" is for lack of a better term "ridiculous", simply because when it comes to what really matters hardware wise the PS4 has more of everything the Xbox1 has! Rops, CU's, CPU is better as well as the GPU. As subjective as it may sound to some, I think it's more than enough ground to state that Sony could be credited with having not only more, but better 1st party developers than Microsoft.
There is no one on this website who cares more, or is more resentful, about the PS4 being more powerful than you are. Just look at that post....downplaying, trolling, self-reassurance by repeating stuff, delusion, it's all there and all bred from your inability to accept that your console is, and always will be, the weaker console. "but XB1 will pull away with games using CPU(CPU controls GPU) with its faster clocked CPU, Hardware based tiled resources(PS4 software tiled) and Azure allowing devs to have 4 times the CPU performance of XB1 alone" It's past the point of laughter now. I *genuinely* think you should either stop using gaming sites, or seek medical help. You are deluded, no other word for it. Funny thing is though, you think you're right. Boy, are you in for some disappointment this gen. MisterX media's blog is bad for your mental health. He was already proven wrong about the dual GPU by MS themselves, and multiple people in his comments called him out for it and said they are never believing him again. I remember, i was there the day it happened. Yet here you are....still letting him force-feed you all this BS which continuously gets proven wrong and then brushed under the carpet by him.
I dnt care at all I like the exclusives the x1 offers I play games not res or power, jus games . I must admit I wish the x1 had TLOU that game looked amazing
Well said. X1 is a great machine. It's only the people that don't own it that think differently.
Couldn't care less.. If it were some massive difference then that would be a different story.. But when you need side by side screen shots and pixel counters to notice the difference, how will that affect anyone playing either? Some have a vested interest in winning an argument... Thats a totally different subject lol
No, they are having too much fun playing games.
Sure, but just because the PS4 is more powerful doesn't mean I want one. The console just doesn't interest me. Is that so hard to understand?
Not all, that's the way it should be.
they do care because they're always going on about how DX12 will bring monumental gains. before that it was Cloud, dGPU etc. in fact some believed everything that came from MisterXMedia's blog so there's that. if I were an Xbox fan I wouldn't care just as long as Microsoft brought the games but imho there's nothing particularly interesting on that platform for me (maybe Halo 5 & Sunset Overdrive) so idk
I didn't much care that the PS3 was more capable than my 360 last gen and I don't care if the 'loyals' much care this generation. I'm happy with the change I've made this gen either way, the extra oomph is really icing on the cake for me. Both systems are going to break new ground this gen and the multiplat differences will be negligible at best imo...
If they didnt care their wouldnt be so many pro Xbox articles downplaying the PS4 power & they would just simply admit it. So yes, they do care.
Just a blunder by microsoft. In the end pc is the best, but in my OPINION I would Levey the Ps4
In all honesty I think power is the only thing ps4 owners have to talk about that's their best offering the x1 keeps getting better in every way the kinect makes it a unique experience twitch is great with it games with gold jus announced pay wall gone I mean power is the only thing they can brag about play games ppl silly arguments are annoying. They both are powerful guns doesn't matter which one is more powerful depends on how you use them
Not at all happy with my xb1 , my pc is the powerhouse though has all the big P.
That was funny lol but it's crazy how some brag about power until a PC player come in then they get mad smh
Honestly i dont care lol. I have literally every game except Fifa and visually i have 0 complaints. They all look beautiful to me, and i am playing on a 55 inch LED. I have played some of the same games on my friends PS4 and i honestly cant see the difference but who knows maybe i really just enjoy the games to much to count each pixel.
