Yes, i actually believe they were not ready...they spent so much time investing in the "future" (Kinect and Cloud) that they put together weaker hardware that is less future proof then their major competitor...

i agree for the most part...but they are still fighting the wrong battles..

- I wish they would drop the specs war...they CANT beat the PS4 in performance...

- the ironic part in all of this is that the talking points they SHOULD be using, are the same ones we as gamers blasted them for during the reveal..

- for the most part they have lost the early adopter...they will sell out all of the launch consoles they can make...but the PS4 is going ...

just another example of how botched the Xbone launch has been up to this point...i TRULY believe that this console was never intended to launch in 2013...and if it was, it was not meant to be shown as early as it was...

MS was caught off guard by Sony's reveal...back at the end of 2012, into early 2013 there were lots of rumors floating around about a next gen console slipping into 2014...EVERYONE thought it was the PS4...nobody thought Sony would be ready to show a conso...

Yeah, that happens when you keep it inside a plastic box lol

they are not official Sony bundles (assuming youre talking about the ones on Amazon)....

its Amazon that will have some explaining to do...

must be waiting for MS to unlock the second GPU

where has Fridgid been lately??

if you actually had a clue as to what you were talking about you might be onto something...

but in this case the past is not even CLOSE to any indication about the future....

1. The PS3 and 360 have RADICALLY different architectures...the PS3 is exponentially more difficult to develop for...in addition, the PS3's GPU is weaker than the 360's, and also has a much more constrictive memory architecture than the 360...

2. the PS2 was SIGN...

you realize that the "200gb/s number is just for the ESRAM right??...all 32MB of it...while the 8GB of system memory is only capable of 68gb/s....ALL of the PS4's memory is 176gb/s...

btw...the GDDR memory is bad for CPU's was debunked...

if you want to talk about "facts"

Xbone GPU:
1.18 TF GPU (12 CUs) for games (10% reserved for "snap" OS function/Kinect)
768 Shaders
48 Texture units ...

1 the difference between 900p and 1080p is noticeable...and it's bigger than the difference between 720p and 900p...

2. I doubt you even know what a shader is

3. Who says it looks generic? We have only been show what 2 of the environments? The Vektan City and the jungle...

4. Frankly I'm not impressed by the no LoD...it's actually a waste of resources...you can't tell how many poly's there are when a character is off in th...

You mean the same Ryse that is running at 900p and 30fps while something like Killzone Shadow Fall (which looks better than Ryse btw) is running at native 1080p and 60fps(multi) 30fps (single player)??

This is what happens when "gaming" journalists try to analyze technical articles when they have no clue what they are talking about...

That comments taken completely out of context...they are just saying that when you look at power (consumption:electricity), cost, availability etc that it made it uncomfortable when they were designing the console...

They feel their setup better fit their vision at the time it was designed...

how about Agent?? lol

1507d ago 3 agree0 disagreeView comment

actually its not like that at all...the Xbone's GPU is 1.31Tflops...they reserve 10% of that for the OS....leaving 1.18Tfops for developers to use for games...

the "unlocking" they are talking about is simply giving some of that 10% back to developers over time to bring them back to full GPU power...

one thing Polyphony always gets right is their lighting...its what sets them apart in the visuals department from Forza...

Forza 3/4 were better GAMES than GT5 was...but Polyphony sure can make a beautiful game...hopefully GT6 will deliver a little better on the gaming front...GT5 laid a lot of great groundwork...should be a great send off for my PS3

they already do

Terribly misleading title...they are only talking about letting developers have some of the power that is currently reserved for the OS....

the Xbone has a 1.31Tflop GPU....10% of that is currently reserved for the OS...leaving developers with about 1.18TFlops for games...

They are talking about giving some of that back in the future...

What this article actually means is that the gap between the PS4 and the Xbone is actually bigger than orig...

@buynit

why? because i said the placement of the sticks makes no difference? lol

1510d ago 18 agree4 disagreeView comment

for the record...idk about yours...but, my hands are symmetrical...my thumbs are in the same place on BOTH of my hands...

that being said i find that there is ZERO influence on my ability to play games based on the position of the analog sticks...but the symmetrical layout makes more sense from a purely physical standpoint...

any negatives to the SIXAXIS/DS3 are more with the overall design of the controller, NOT its stick placement...frankly i think most peo...
