That's because Xbox One is the best thing since sliced bread... sliced bread having been invented the previous winter.

thrust1834d ago

"Xbox One's Architecture Allows Faster Prototyping"

they way the headline is written insinuates a comparison to the PS4

according to various 3rd party developers the PS4 is the fastest and most easy to develop for

also most 3rd party games are demonstrated on the PS4 much earlier than on the XB1

PFFT1834d ago

Various unnamed and under Sony payroll developers you mean.

darthv721834d ago

@new...if it had said 'faster prototyping than PS4' then i can see where you would think that.

But in reality it just insinuates faster prototyping as in faster than previous methods/platforms.

The PS4 is not part of that insinuation other than by your own admission.

LonChaneyTV1834d ago (Edited 1834d ago )

"they way the headline is written insinuates a comparison to the PS4 "

????? and where was ps4 in the statement?

The sole purpose of Xbox was to implement direct x to simplify pc to console deployment........this is NOT a stab at other manufactures. and it is not a stab at other manufacturers to say direct X is commonly used, it's been around for nearly 20 years.

schubacca1834d ago

@NEWMONDAY, Seriously?

What you think the words mean, and the actual meaning of these words are two massively different things I am afraid.

Yes, the PS4 is great and powerful. Greatness Awaits. Wonderful.

But please stop with trying to make this a console war issue...

BallsEye1834d ago


I'd like to get a real source for that. Link to articles or anything else from third party devs (no sony indies please!) confirming ps4 is stronger or is faster to develop for. So far the only one who said it was People Can Fly former dev that said " I HEARD FROM OTHERS" . Anyone who post this nonsense like you just did should provide real sources or never speak again about it.

gamertk4211834d ago

Putting the defensive in Sony Defense Force, lol

loulou1833d ago

lol gamingbolts one-a-day

Sono4211833d ago

and in other news the sky is blue... ofc it's going to be faster than previous consoles... do we really need a whole article telling us so?

sync901833d ago

Im buying a next gen console to play games on.

NewZealander1833d ago

@ newmonday, links please, what devs say ps4 is easier to develop for? unnamed? yeah believe everything you read on the net if you want, unless its something good about the X1 then its a lie huh?

well it wouldn't be a X1 article without a sony troll in the mix i guess.

NewMonday1833d ago (Edited 1833d ago )

@PFFT & @BallsEye & @NewZealander

you want some statements from multiplatform 3rd party developers? OK here are some links..

Gekko361833d ago

@All... This article is nice to read. I'm not surprised that Xbox One is easy to develop for, because the Xbox 360 was easy to develop for.

Mind you the comments from Sony Fan Children saying that the PS4 is easy to develop, I have to say "ABOUT BLOODY TIME!" I'm sure Sony were high when they decided to use the CELL processor in the Praystation 3. Thqnk god they all saw sense and went X86 / X64 this time round.

So I suppose XB1 is easiear than Xbox 360 (though 360 was a breeze for devs) and PS4 must be an amazing breath of fresh air following the PS3 (PS3 while powerful was a [email protected] to code against)

Armyntt1833d ago

@Newmonday, hahah your own links dont even prove your point. First link was an "anonymous" source and the second link implied a PS4 vs X1 comparison but in reality he only said how easy the PS4 is to develope not that its easier than X1.

mewhy321833d ago

Devs the world over have stated that the PS4 is the easiest to develop on. But I'm sure that the bone is easier than the 360.

Septic1833d ago


You might want to read the links you posted there mate...

MazzingerZ1833d ago

Faster maybe compared to X360 or compared to what?

Its Crytek, they have an X1 exclusive launching on the platform, what else would they say?

Ill stick to the masses of devs, both indie and AAA, multiplatform or exclusive commending the architecture of the PS4 for now.

malokevi1834d ago (Edited 1834d ago )

But the article is about Xbox One, not PS4.

CRAIG6671834d ago

Who gives a toss, I am purchasing next gen consoles to PLAY games NOT DEVELOP them!!!
All the fanboys on here somehow think it will personally effect the outcome of their lives if console A is easier to develop on than console B.
WAKE UP!!! Multi plat games are going to be all but identical, only the nerdiest gimps and fanboys out there are going to pick apart the minuscule disparities - SAD.
Get over it and enjoy gaming people.

Elit3Nick1834d ago

the devs of which you speak are also making exclusives for the PS4, your point?

DeadManIV1834d ago (Edited 1834d ago )

@Craig, you dumbass. If a console is easier to develop for, we get games quicker - with better quality.

tigertom531834d ago

nothing hear on PS4 vs X1 all he said was One of the big advantages over "previous" console generations is the graphics capabilities. So that is Xbox 360 and PS3 and how it great to have X86 having effectively a PC architecture for the CPU side of things....

CRAIG6671834d ago

@DeadManIV - That wasn't called for! I'm looking at PS3... Both next gen consoles are leaps and bounds ahead in terms of ease for developers...
Carry on being a hate filled fanboy though, you'll go far like that mate.

osprey191834d ago

Well they could be comparing it to the 360. They never say which platform its faster than and ryse was originally intended to be a 360 game.

AngelicIceDiamond1834d ago

Wow, and yet Sony fans still haven't learned from the You Tube incident. Thanks proving your fanbase are compiled of no life psychos and fake of the fakest gamers lol.

Thunderhawkxbox1833d ago

The one Sony paid them to say it and who would trust a company which make lots of AAA games or indie devs which they make $10 game typical Sony fan boys praising ps4 and bashing Xbox one not first time is it ? Nope

BlackTar1871833d ago


I'm clapping on my end of the computer at how you're showing them LOL

you're do a disservice to your point.

badkolo1833d ago

like a true troll, if sony devs say it then yes its true and when x1 dev says it then its false

buynit1833d ago (Edited 1833d ago )

Lmfao i knew it wouldnt be long before i scrolled down and see a comment like yours.

Its all lies all of it because they have an Exclusive! /s

I guess its only true if a dev. Isn't working on the console to state how the console really is, i guess i should wait for Santa Monica to tell me how easy or hard it is to work on the xb1...

Often times I find you fairly logical, so why say that?

malokevi1834d ago (Edited 1834d ago )

It's a Simpsons quote, lol. Couldn't help myself... plus why can't I lay down some praise for the console in question? No harm in that. After all, I am looking forward to it, as much as that irks the community.

People around here seem to hate humor/laughter/happiness/light heartedness... When it has to do with Xbox, anyways.

that's OK. mmm disagrees, NOM NOM NOM! :D

Outside_ofthe_Box1834d ago

I'm glad to see this news didn't make your head hurt this time around.

malokevi1834d ago

lol awww, looks like I have a fan! It's alright sweetie, there's enough of me to go around!


FlyingFoxy1834d ago

I see you've played knifey spoony before..

AngelicIceDiamond1834d ago

@Monday The headline isn't insinuating a damn thing. Its the difference between 360 and PS3.

You really need a life, no where in the article did they mention PS4 or any Sony console. Don't you have some Xbox You Tube video's to go bash with the rest of your Sony fanboy mob somewhere?

Honestly you guys are literally the ONLY fanbase that have a do or die mission, an agenda a brigade. And manage to out crazy any fanboy in gaming history ever.

People exactly like you ruined a campaign that Toys R Us was promoting for X1.

And I bet you feel happy about that.

Its really hard to enjoy gaming with your fanbase ruining everything at every single single second of the day.

I never listen to fanboys, but this marks the day to NEVER EVER listen to a single Sony fan ever again. Whenever MS post news I'll listen to them and completely ignore any Sony fan yelling "fake" "not real" or any of the sorts, I'll ignore Until you guys check yourselves into an insane asylum for a year.

MetalProxy1833d ago

LOL this "sony guys are the worst" is complete bullshit! The more and more you guys do this the less and less I can take any of you guys seriously...seriously.

sync901833d ago

Your 'sony gamers are fake gamers' comment is immature and shows you to be a pathetic.

BlackTar1871833d ago

yea the world is against vibe from some people is old and sad

LogicStomper1833d ago

@ Sync90

"Your 'sony gamers are fake gamers' comment is immature and shows you to be a pathetic."

I'm sorry but, how does that make him a fanboy? You clearly lack the intelligence to even comprehend the definition of 'fanboy'. Where in his comment does he show a sign of superiority towards a console? If you had the brains, you'd notice that his subject is 'fanboys', not consoles. It shows that you can't even refute his argument using a logical and valid argument.

How pathetic.


"yea the world is against vibe from some people is old and sad"

It's not old and sad if the trash-talking has forced a toys company to disable it's comments and remove the video AND, have articles written about the situation. I actually find it sad that you're trying to minimise the situation.

SonyAddict1833d ago

Dude just give yourself a facepalm!.

Underworld1833d ago

Oh please, all fanboys are just as bad. How many years did Xbox fanboys attack the PS3? Hmm? Oh, let's pretend they weren't that bad.

You're not going to listen to any Sony fan because of Sony fanboys? How stupid. Stop mixing the two together.

AngelicIceDiamond1833d ago

@Underworld And yet another guy saying "Remember when MS fans were just as bad. Good god yeah we know. Why you you all keep bringing it up?

Both fanbases are terrible but its clear which one is WAY more psycho, than the other FACT.

But tell me this whens the last time MS fanboys took down a PS ad?

Imalwaysright1833d ago

LMAO I've been here since 2007 and PC fanboys, PS fanboys, Nintendo and Xbox fanboys are all the same. You're all guilty of doing the same things over and over again. Anyone saying otherwise is definetely not impartial.

in other news ND love sony and praise ps4

crytek i respect your studio and your game engines a lot, but please deliver a proper story,interesting gameplay before start talking

for as great as crysis looked it was a bore fest and the story was average, so please with RYSE make story and gameplay the most important aspects and not just graphics

buynit1833d ago

What does your opinion on their games have to do with their opinion on working on the xb1?

ALLWRONG1833d ago

PS4 and Sony are not even mentioned anywhere in this news. It's just this all over again.

PraxxtorCruel1834d ago

I'm quite sure PS4 couldn't of handled it any better. Besides look at DriveClub, it's still throwing 30FPS. I acknowledge that the PS4 is more powerful but it isn't either having a walk in the park regarding fps and 1080p.

thrust1834d ago

Its only a couple more fps more powerfull.

it nothin like what some believe on here!

Drekken1834d ago

Killzone SF is arguably the best looking launch game and it runs 1080P/60FPS in multiplayer. Recognize!

PFFT1834d ago

"SOMETIMES" at 60fps. Shadowfall doesnt run at a stable 60fps.

pete0071834d ago (Edited 1834d ago )

i agree with you, and by the way i believe all of those fanboys have skipped ps3, because i guess they only buy the easiest console to develop to, XBOX ONE never had any comments such as gabe newell did in regards ps3, remember? and not only him, most third party and still the disaster survived til today, i dont see xbox any worse than ps3, its basically the same as 360 with a pc cpu, the radical change was on sony side, demonstrating ps3 architecture a complete failure, dev wise.
a kiss from your GOD

Kayant1834d ago


So what games run at locked 60fps even in demanding situations?

They just explained it how it is.

Drekken1834d ago

@PFFT MOST of the time.

Funnymonkey0131833d ago (Edited 1833d ago )

Trust me any games on X1 is bound to look better on PS4 as it's easier more powerful to develope games 4. Plus 1080p at 30 is great consedering that it does more things then forza 5 like night time and soon weather effect I mean I don't c any added features on froza like night and weather effects and DC will still look a lot better then froza 5. And one last thing killzone SF is 1080p at 60 in MP and the best looking game so far 4 a next gen console. Plus one more infamous SS is open world and I heard its 60 and also at 1080p as well. I mean come on killer instant a fighting game is 720p at 60 really laughable.

GiantEnemyCrab1834d ago

Because they figured a lower poly count would make for smoother game play? Developers often have to balance things to make the game play better. I am all for lowing the already outrageous poly count if it means smoother animations, a solid framerate, etc.

Yodagamer1834d ago (Edited 1834d ago )

Not so much downgraded as most of the polygons were places you wouldn't see so they rebalanced graphically with better shaders, no lod and more realtime physics. In all Honest i'd prefer the new option as changes in LOD always drives me nuts.

Kayant1834d ago

This again... Sigh... Yes it's a downgrade in the numbers they sold us with but is it such a downgrade visually? No because arguably it has improved more (Skin texture, shading, etc) than it has been downgraded (Armour detail). At the end of the day does it really matter? Not really since it looks just as good.

BOLO1833d ago


It's simple...They wanted to achieve "dat balance".
