Albert Penello Promises Comments on Xbox One and PS4 Resolution Differences “Once the Dust Settles”

Microsoft’s Director of Product Planning Albert Penello spent quite a lot of time on NeoGaf trying to respond to questions on the Xbox One, and often saying that versions of games on Microsoft’s upcoming console and PS4 that have been revealed having different native resolutions looked the same to him. Since the latest reveals on COD and Battlefield 4 he has been silent, until now.

The story is too old to be commented.

Once the dust settles...PS4 will still be more powerful.

Albert Penello: "The dust still hasn't settled, I'll let you know when it has. Then you'll hear my answer"

GribbleGrunger3256d ago (Edited 3256d ago )

What he means by that is 'When our PR machine has done it's job.'

It might fool the die hard Xbox fans but it's not going to persuade PS fans to move camp, and those that were sitting on the fence where sitting on the fence for a reason: to find out which is the most powerful console, and we now know for certain which one it is. We already knew but ... what can you say?

The first batch of consoles will sell out, they always do and MS will use those figures to prove that Sony hasn't got the edge (they'll also concentrate on America and the UK), but early next year we should start seeing which system is the system of choice. I have a pretty good idea which it will be.

I wouldn't take too much stock in Sony's claim that the PS4 will sell 5 million by March either. Don't be surprised if it beats that by quite a margin and don't be surprised if Sony haven't got a fresh batch of PS4s ready for the 22nd of Nov.

There is also a chance (and this is complete speculation) that Sony may well allow shipments of consoles to release in Europe early. I just feel it in my bones. Don't count on it though, my bones have let me down quite a lot in recent years. Calcium tablets don't seem to help the matter ...

I think Penello trying to say let the dust settle because right now the dust is too thick and we can't see the power of the cloud through it.

MysticStrummer3256d ago

@kayoss - That shouldn't bother MS or their fans. If you pay attention to E3, they're quite comfortable with smoke, provided they also incorporate mirrors.

They keep putting it off so they can get to the launch without answering to preserve preorders and then they can say well we never said it was this or that. They are dumb like a fox..

What does he even mean by that?? These MS guys are jokes.

Once the dust has settled everybody bought a PS4 already.

MazzingerZ3256d ago

I think there is no more to discuss today, everone has pretty much decided which console to get at launch, this kind of articles just arises the eternal discussion of trying to defend your choice and bash the others when at the end of the day many will get the other console at a later stage

I just want to play on my PS4 already!

deecee333256d ago

The XBone is going to sell like hot cakes out of the gate no doubt, but I'm just wondering how long that can last without a price drop- at some point people are going to wonder why the PS4 display in the store somehow looks better, and why they are paying $100 more.

iamnsuperman3256d ago (Edited 3256d ago )

I don't understand what he means by this. The problem is if he waits the dust storm will rise up again. Unless he is just waiting for launch to get out of the way (for obvious reasons) I think this could be a bad move. Honestly answering the question saying we will answer it in the future is bad. He should have just ignore it.

Someone made an interesting point in the gaf forum
"I have no idea why people from Microsoft keep engaging, but it's great entertainment"

They should not get involved. Just have the twitter pages and answer the questions they want to answer there. It isn't helping them doing what they are doing right now

sAVAge_bEaST3256d ago (Edited 3256d ago )

The dust settles, when the games and unit will have launched... Suckaa's!!!
-and then the joke will be on you , the gamer.. while M$ laughs all the way to the bank.

Real_gamer3256d ago

When the dust settles you and kaz will get married

JoGam3255d ago

Guess you are an xbot. Lol. Pathetic.

Brix903256d ago

I don't want to hear any more of Penello's lies he should just lay low til launch with all the bad news no wonder Nelson has been quiet...

SaturdayNightBeaver3256d ago

In my eyes the only dust here is MS and their shitty XBOX "720" (with probably 3 exclusive games in its miserable lifetime) :)

Actually the Dust will never settle and forever be stuck in their eyes. He will come up with some sort of spin on the whole thing. That's all they have been doing is spin spin spin. It's making everyone dizzy.

The truth has been out since the reveal of the hardware specs for both consoles. The PS4 is simply more powerful than the X1. Pure 100% fact. It's like saying 2 + 2 = 4, but we got MS and their fans saying 1 + 2 = 3 > 4.

joseph11113255d ago

Cancelled my Xbox one preorder and am only purchasing the ps4 for now. The resolution issue was the final nail in the coffin... if they can prove the cloud worthy later on, I will buy one then...

Another article that will soon to be trolled and shot down immediately

BOLO3255d ago

Why do you focus on those who "troll" Xbox One articles and not the months and months of countless mistakes M$FT has brought on the Xbone and themselves? It's not the rest of the gaming communities fault M$FT screwed their own heads with nails.

NYC_Gamer3256d ago

I want them to come out and tell the truth without any type of PR bull crap

BG115793256d ago

It's impossible for Microsoft's PR.
For them telling the truth is like having a superpower.

mistertwoturbo3255d ago (Edited 3255d ago )


Just when you start giving them some credit, they shush everyone up and say

KingOdin893256d ago

They will.......when the dust settles..........keep waiting for it...

MRMagoo1233256d ago

They really dont need to tell the truth , its already out there , the ps4 is the better machine there is no way around that, they can spin all they want about 1080p upscaled being as good as 1080p native but its just lies and they should be called out on it every time till they get the hint that making up BS wont cut it this time round.

IamTheStorm813256d ago

This guy always does more harm than anything. Amazing that MS keeps him around.

He actively damages the brand. At least that's how I see it.

"Once the dust settles". When "NDA are up". "Blah". "Blah". "Blah".

Albert, just stop. You're making an already bad situation even worse.

Golden_Mud3256d ago

Microsoft , you have to be ready for next time , you know the PS5 and the next Xbox , people saying they're impossible will realize they're not
