Also, with that 8GB of ram, the new Xbox will be running 3 different OS.

n4g_someone2888d ago

3 OS's on Xbox One, so still..

4>3 :P ; if not, then we go back to

I wonder how much RAM will be used now that the TV, Movie, Game,Music, UI, etc will all be going on at once.

I don't know too much about RAM but can someone explain how much RAM could be used now that EVERYTHING is connected.

tuglu_pati2888d ago

3 of the 8GB will be use for those features leaving only 5 gigs for gaming.

Put it this way PS4>XBOX1>Wii U.

Victory? PS4 didn't even exsist at It's reveal.

I'd be surprised if Sony even has the same console they announced at the reveal hardware wise at launch.

PS consoles are never the same as boasted.

What has you people in denial today? Why So angry?

MSFT announced and showed a dam sexy next gen console and told use it's coming soon with sweat features and lots of games coming. This is what people wanted.

I think one of the things bothering PS fans is the RAM they keep mentioning RAM and TV. RAM and Power is scaled. Xbox One is always doing two things at once the ram is for switching.

MSFT's CHIPS are highly customized so spec talk or comparisons is pointless, really. Love the guessing about RAM type and GPU/CPU LMAO pretty intertaining.

If you think about it MSFT did the smart thing. Everybody was waiting to see the next xbox. They showed the console to the broadest span of consumers with the broadest set of offerings that appeal to more people than just hardcore gamers and Sony trolls. E3 is for games.

Heard the same rubbish trolling when Xbox released and when Kinect released yet MSFT can not be stopped in NA and is selling many 360 almost 10 years later LOL

You must get a hard on for VHS-looking players.

Enemy2889d ago (Edited 2889d ago )

"PS4 didn't even exsist at It's reveal. "

And with good reason. E3 belongs to Sony now more than ever before. Today was Microsoft's last chance against the PS4. In the end, it was always 4 > One

BlueTemplar2889d ago

You seriously think the PS4 doesnt exist dont you?

You think that the console cant possibly exist until the casing is finalised? You do realise they are in fact just PCs in a box surely?

At the very least, you MUST SURELY acknowledge that if companies like Ubisoft are releasing games for it THIS YEAR then it has to exist in some form?? or do you think the devs take receipt of a console a couple of months before launch and just magic a fully-formed game out of their arse?

FFS get a grip of yourself!

BlueTemplar2889d ago

"Love the guessing about RAM type"

What guessing? Sony explicitly announced 8gb of GDDR5 RAM. If MS was using the same, they also would have stated it so people wouldnt jump to conclusions about DDR3.

Theres this thing, called "reading between the lines". You dont appear to be very good at it.

Root2889d ago

"Victory? PS4 didn't even exsist at It's reveal."

Exactly...and it's gotten more hype then the Xbox One without showing the console

They have something else to wow us with at E3 instead of just new games. This makes the hype even stronger for Sony

"MSFT announced and showed a dam sexy next gen console"

Mate, i knew you drunk and dissapointed with how MS blow up your expectation. So you should take a rest and deal with it :)

Clarence2889d ago (Edited 2889d ago )

At it again I see its the other way around. Based on the design of the Johnny 5 i mean the Betamax 1 oh damn Xbox 1 M$ new console didn't even exists until the PS4 was announced.

You think it's sexy. That thing belongs in the 70's with threes company.
M$ actually hired a design team to come with this monstrosity.

I could have came up with that design. Get me 2 of Yao Ming shoe boxes some cable wires, black glossy spray paint and some motor oil and I'll make you a Xbox 1

The ps4 is more powerful

Read it and stop fooling yourself

All M$ did was spam you with gimmicks hand gestures, apps and fantasy football

RIP_Weazel2889d ago

..."sweat features"?
"sexy","Sony trolls"?

Are you on a one-boy crusade to be the poster-child of pointless console adoration? You do realise that there's a wide world out there with nature,social lives, girls (That arent related to you), and non-line people!!

Go home Greenpowerz, you're drunk.

solidsheep2889d ago

Xbox, put Greenpowerz to bed.

DigitalRaptor2889d ago (Edited 2889d ago )

Face it greenpowerz, the company you idolize just did a U-turn on you and your fellow Xbox gamers out there, well at least they made that clear at this event. E3 could display a different focus, but it cannot hide that they have prioritized gaming, below other things. People won't forget this, and not only have MS made their situation even worse, in regards to "false" negative rumours but they've confused people in regards to their direction as a gaming company. If they don't solve this at E3, well... frankly I don't want to imagine that outcome. The games they show at E3 will have to be more than amazing for people to even perhaps consider putting up with Microsoft's consumer restrictions set in place, as I've noted below.

Even stockholders were not impressed by it. Now I couldn't be sure whether that is because they were concerned about Microsoft abandoning the legacy of what is a gaming console for the "entertainment hub", or for other reasons, but what is certain is that Sony stock jumped and Microsoft stock fell. Stockholders are not fanboys.

"What has you people in denial today? Why So angry?"

There's no denial to what was plain and simple, a huge fail for a console reveal. The name, even the look of the console (which wouldn't sway my purchase decision) is as ugly and out of shape as an elderly VHS player. Microsoft's focus was painfully not about games.

I'd say it's more like PS fans face-palming and a "we told you so" attitude. There's no denial in this house. It's you who's on the defensive now, when there's no defending to be had. It was a gaming console reveal, and they focused more on TV, services and general entertainment.

More news: Non-removable HDD:

Even more news: It's a mess over at MSHQ. Phil Harrison told Kotaku that you will have to connect to the Internet every day, thus "always-online". Microsoft replied to this claim saying that these are "potential scenarios" that aren't confirmed yet. Disaster!

Get ready Xbox users, seriously...

And "Sony trolls"... we are gamers. We are calling out our consumer rights against a greedy, controlling and anti-consumer corporation.

- Games are locked to one user.
- The console requires Kinect to run.
- Still charging $60 for peer to peer online, unless they admit otherwise?
- Still charging $60 for free apps

So, going into E3 Microsoft will be going first, and after months of negative rumors (many seemingly true) and a hugely disappointing reveal they will have a very cynical audience. If they don't spend time between then, then part of their E3 press conference will have to be spent refuting rumors or, more likely, trying to spin it in a positive light.

Whereas the PS4 E3 press conference, not only are most people very optimistic about the console, but there is still the big reveal of what it looks like! Genius move if you asked me. People are excited for the console, they are excited to see more games, and the PS4 still has the bombshell reveal of a console design!

Oh, and if you want to read about the specs:

windblowsagain2888d ago

It's not a guess, ram is DDR3.

The bandwidth is poor, it'll be competing with the wii u.

But hey you can both use your machines to control your tv.

Objective2888d ago

The amount of drivel coming out on all these Xbox one articles really demonstrates the rabid bias on this site. At this point in time, there is absolutely nothing that PS4 has revealed indicating that it will be a better console with better games, yet look at all these crazy fanboy comments!

Sony automatically wins.


have to agree..

There is a phrase that comes to mind from make home " Enemies of progress "

ps4 wins in my book

eddvdm2889d ago

It would be the worst of two worlds (Console / Game) for the consumer if Microsoft had a deal with Everything Asshol.. oh

*Sony automatically wins*

coolmast3r2889d ago

My wallet is already open for Sony. Sorry, Microsoft, you shouldn't have done what you've done today.
