Xbox One Opinion

GamerVet Hockey Glory says his piece about Xbox One rumours:

"Well, it’s been days since the Xbox One reveal and there seems to be a boatload of negativity. As an Xbox fan (I believe I’m the only one who writes for this site who DOES NOT have a PS3), I agree and disagree with various aspects."

I stopped reading here:

"It’s not like we are comparing two systems with a huge disparity in specs."

The PS4 GPU looks to be significantly better both in terms of fillrate (16 v 32 ROP's) and shader power (768 v 1152), those aren't small differences which will go unnoticed in games.

Add to that all of the other gamer orientated improvements Sony have made to their architecture (and unified GDDR5).

It's obvious where the two companies priorities are.. Sony is using GDDR5 which places graphics as a priority. Don't get me wrong 8 gigs of RAM is more than enough to handle all of the processing needs of the console. But being GDDR5 shows that Sony is more concerned with gaming. Microsoft is placing a lot of emphasis on Multimedia functionality.

One reason the PS3 struggled was because they divided their Ram and the 360 didn't.

Its seems MS have learnt from Sonys mistake and thought "we'll have some of that"

@TheMeerkat I made a comment below about that.. 250mb ram for the GPU and 250 for the Cpu was an error on Sony's part and I think they found that out the hard way.. There was a processing bottle neck and hindered what was an excellent console..Imagine how insane the ps3 would have been given even just 1gig of ram let alone 8.

excellent article hockeyglory. Very unbias and straight to the point. You did your homework well and backed it up with some good points. I will be looking forward of seeing more from you.

"Xbox 360 games using ancient DVD discs holding a fraction of storage space seem better as a whole"

More like: Xbox 360 games using ANCIENT DVD DISCS HOLDING DEVELOPERS AND THE PS3 BACK FROM MAKING/GETTING BETTER GAMES.

Just take a look at the PS3 exclusives.
