The biggest story recently is that M$ has 'upgraded' the Xbox One from 800MHz to 853. Good job MS. Pathetic boost to damage control. *Slowly claps*. Either way, the comment sections have been blazing.
First off, if you think a 53MHz boost has any significant meaning, my PC which maxes out Crysis 3 laughs and I don't even use it that much. Secondly, am I the only one concerned as to how MS plans to release this thing without a next gen sequel of The RROD? It's really late in the game to making an upgrade like this. Really late. As small as this boost is, they still need proper time for testing and stuff. I really think you Xbox fanboys are avoiding the truth.
I'm also wondering-didn't someone from MS say specs don't matter a couple of weeks ago? I mean, I'm just saying. And a lot of you fanboys stood behind it as well. In fact you fanboys have said the DRM M$ was conjuring up is the future. Don't you dare otherwise GTFO. The future of gaming is not to get smothered by a greedy companies bullshit. When EA did online passes did people say it was the future? No! Because they aren't a console manufacturer like M$. That's how I know it's just fanboyism.
Some of you guys are under the impression that the XB1 will run games better than the PS4 and all I have to say is: Bullshit. If you guys remeber, the Dark Socerer demo was only using 4GB of GDDR5 RAM and was running at 1080p and was jumping between 30 and 90 fps. The frame rate wasn't even optimized. Sony was using incomplete PS4 dev kits. As for MS they were using high end PCs at E3. Don't try to avoid it. We've got pictures my friend.
Let's talk about the whole Direct X11.1 thing. So apparently, the Xbox One will run Battlefield 4 the best (on consoles at least). Mainly because of the fact that the Xbone has Direct X11.1. That and MS have Battlefield 4 in their wallet, due to the whole DLC thing. Which'll bring me to something later. Now the PS4 uses APIs called GMN thing called GNMX (with the PSSL being they're shader language), which basically has ev everything that DX11 and OpenGL 4.0, but they got even better because they have access to the PS4 hardware. And yes GMNX and GMN is compatible with both DX and OpenGl. So yeah. PS4 continues to be OP. Like I said, MS has BF4 in their pockets so I really think Dice is lying. Really I do. I think the PS4 versions of a lot of games are going to run better. We don't even know how many GB of RAM it uses. At this point, it either 6GB, 7GB or 8GB with a secondary chip for the OS and recording. The fact is, DX11.1 or not the PS4 is still more powerful. I'll be very keen to see a PS4 vs Xbone comparison of BF4 when it releases. Both GMNX and GMN (PS4 APIs) and DX11.2 (Xbox One API) surpass DX11.1 . I'm almost certain that the PS4 APIs are more powerful because it has full access to the PS4 hardware. I've read the actual statement from Dice and all it mentioned was DX11.1. Not the XB1. He never said that the XB1 would run it better. I think that statement was directed at guys who're buying BF4 on PC. Gaming journalists will twist anything for hits. Especially when next gen is around the corner.
Also, I've said this before, but has anyone else noticed how many xbox fanboys have migrated to this site? Or at least being a lot more vocal. Because ever since that reversal, I've seen loads of people running back to MS like bees to honey. It's strange as hell to me. It's also funny how anyone that disagrees with what M$ does is a Sony fanboy and gets pummeled with disagrees.
Lastly let me say this: M$ is scrambling right now. They're saying and doing whatever they can to keep them from getting hammered with negative publicity and PR. Why are did they increase the clockspeed? Because of the PS4. Point, blank, period. Some of you guys get way too easily impressed. Especially after the whole DRM debacle. And if you're wondering why MS get's so much slamming, it's well deserved. Don't deny that. And let me say this as well: The Xbox One WILL NOT outsell the PS4. It's just not possible. The 360 came out a year prior to the PS3, had a cheaper console and they still came last. So if you think that after this whole DRM debacle, the main focus of TV and a console that is $100 dollars more than the PS4 is going to win, you need to wake up FAST. If things go the way I think they will, that thing'll come dead last. Why did MS show actual games at E3? Because gamers were about to destroy them with negative feedback. All MS has been doing is active damage control. Nothing more. We know they moneyhat as well. How much do you think they paid to get MGS5, FFXV and KH3?Deal with it. You xbox fanboys also think that the XB1 offers more than the PS4. You guys come up with TV (which you already need a f***ing service provider for in the first place) and some of you even use the Kinect. Really? A camera which you use to flail around like a jackass waving and waving your arms like your recording a hyper harlem shake, doing all of these weird ass movements to play a game? A camera that is needed to make the console function? A camera that makes the console $500 in the first place? Yeah, I call damage control BS.
The Xbox fans are gonna be bashing me all over the place and I know that for a fact. It was quite fun to write this blog. Thanks for reading and I hope you were entertained even if just a little bit.
EDIT: I knew it man. The comment section of this blog. *Sigh*. There aren't that many comments, but so far all I see is people just saying things that make know sense or saying something on the lines of: 'This blog is terrible'. Why? Because you've got nothing else. You have nothing to say that opposes the actually content of this article directly. Also I find it funny how you some of you guys say that when it comes to the XB1 specs are meaningless to discuss but when it comes to the Wii U, that's the first thing people talk about.
