Xbox One ‘Will Always be Behind the PS4…Because it isn’t as Powerful’ says DICE Dev

| October 17, 2015

Xbox One 'Will Always be Behind the PS4...Because it isn't as Powerful' says DICE Dev News  Xbox One Xbox PS4 playstation

Alan Kertz, the gameplay designer for Battlefield 4 and Star Wars Battlefront developer DICE, posted a couple of tweets last week about the Xbox One. Many of these have riled up fans, as he is pretty open about his thoughts on the console, and its position in this generation. Note: Kertz specifies that his tweets are his opinion only, stating “Personal Tweets, Random Musings, All Thoughts my Own.” So this is not the official position of DICE.

“No amount of consumer trust can change that it’s just an inferior horse in the horsepower category,” Tweeted Kertz. He later clarified this a bit by saying “Xbone (Xbox One) will always be behind the PS4 this generation because it isn’t as powerful.”

This, of course, got some Xbox fans angry, with Alan responding that the Xbox One isn’t a lost cause by any stretch. “But just like last gen, when enough exclusives pile up and the price drops it’ll be a worthy purchase.”

The power, or relative lack thereof, of the Xbox One has been a major point of contention since the two non-Nintendo consoles were revealed. It seemed clear early on that the PS4 would be the more technically powerful system, though how much that would impact games was up for debate.

Early titles showed some significant differences, with some games having lower resolution and framerate on the Xbox One. However, as the console has evolved, it seems like the gap is closing thanks to some powerful software changes implemented by Microsoft.

There is still a difference on occasion, but it seems rarer these days than when the consoles first launched. However, the stigma has already formed that the Xbox One is the less capable system, which is still ultimately true from everything said by developers. But does it really change the landscape all that much? Let us know what you think in the comments.

        Your funny, I have all systems I use my ps4 more but I do like some halo mcc once and while. if your looking for the best console exclusives then Wii U has them all beat. Time and time again gameplay is king

          You’re*

      • CRZYSPZ

        And your response is probably 10 times worse.

      • Dylan Harris

        I’m a Xbox fan, I’m not dodging anything. I have over 50 games, slightly better graphics don’t hamper my enjoyment. Deal with it.

        • Whiskey Red Balls

          Slightly better in all games lol means a lot to me. Glad I have 1080p going to my 1080p tv

          • Mike Lebowski

            Yes, that obviously makes you the superior person. All else can give up now. Or you could just let it be, we’re happier anyways, in spite of a few games not displaying in full 1080p (highly inconsequential, as it were)

          • Cameron Richardson

            Xbox displays in 1080p let’s not bring this lie back

          • Luis Sandoval

            neither one of the consoles runs games in native 1080p. Why do you think Sony is about to screw us all with the PS4.5 There is a difference between native and up-scaled 1080p

        • Any sample of title with better graphics on your X minus One???
          .
          From other hand – if Indie developers are forbidden on the X-1, but they create many playable games – how you will get the 51st title of game for your enjoy?

  • Darth Vader™

    It really has more to do with the mistakes MS made at launch. This is actually the fist time ever where the most powerful console is in the lead most of the time. I mean, look at the 3DS and Vita. The Vita is more powerful yet the 3DS is overwhelmingly outselling it.

    • Herolicar Bufole

      And the OG Xbox was way more powerful than PS2 but it got demolished in sales.

      • Mirimon

        Way more powerful?

        Don’t get me wrong here, there were far greater issues with the first xbox. Sure, it was more reliable than any following xbox console, but still high at about 32%failure rate. It also suffered from lack of library, though the titles were more unique than those on following xbox consoles and eventually grew large enough that to this day more than half of the 360 library consists of og xbox titles.

        But more powerful? System 246 is still beyond comprehension to write for, and I didn’t see Saddam sending troops to grab up xbox consoles…. while ps2 had hdd first, multiple os, motion gaming, skype, voice control, and actual dts surround not a fake signal…. no, only on msft’s failing third console have they started to understand what a console is all about.

        • Darth Vader™

          Yes, Xbox was more powerful than the PS2.

          • Mirimon

            No

            See how easy that was.

          • Darth Vader™

            Uh, yes, it is more powerful.
            Its been a fact for a while now. A LONG while.

        • Generalkidd

          Umm what are you talking about? The original Xbox was one of the most reliable consoles of that generation. I have no idea where you’re getting your numbers. And the Xbox 360 library is massive. Original xbox games make up less than 10% of the 360 library, especially because not all original xbox games are backwards compatible.
          And yes, plain and simple, the original xbox was the most powerful console of that generation. It was even on par with the Wii of the next generation. The original Xbox had a top of the line PC CPU from Intel and a top of the line NVidia GPU. And the Xbox was the first to include an HDD, it was only an optional expansion on PS2’s. The PS2 did not have multi-OS support, that was the PS3. The NES was the first motion gaming console, almost 10 years before the PS2. Skype didn’t exist yet during the PS2’s time. The Xbox 360 was the first to introduce voice control system wide with the Kinect. And the original xbox was the first to have full real time Dolby True HD encoding. The PS2 did not. You’re probably confusing the PS2 with the PS3. Oh not to mention, since PS fanboys love to do this, the original Xbox was the first console capable of 1080i resolution while the PS2 could only do 480p. But then again, you’re not really a PlayStation fan if you’re not even aware of what a PS2 actually is.

          • Allfor1

            Dont mind him, hes a Sony drone. That tries to sound rational to appear unbias. Smh

          • Mirimon

            No….. it was the most reliable XBOX… not most reliable console. Though low compared to subsequent generations, at 32% its failure rate was still far too extreme against the industry norm of 3-5%…

            Motion gaming in terms of a non wearable…

            Ps2 DID support other operating systems, specifically versions of linux. This was possible through an hdd BEFORE THERE WAS EVER AN XBOX….

            Skype did exist then… just because you xbots wont recognize it unless it has a msft label on it does not mean it wasn’t there… having used it extensively to speak with family while deployed to Iraq

            Dolby, and dts….the xbox did not have this, nor did the 360 until their second revision….ps2 actually did.

            1080i was the highest supported resolution of the ps2, upscaled from native 480p (or 240p if ps1 title), BEFORE THERE EVER WAS AN XBOX…

            Listen, the thing about trying to correct people is that you should probably not be using beleif and misinformation yourself… try a fact now and again, it might feel refreshing.. (fyi, this has nothing to do with brand names…. this is purely about facts which just so happen to put the sony product at the forefront of media tech.)

            Its cool though, been repairing hardware and coding 30 years before you had your first rrod issue during your 5th birthday… move along now.

          • Generalkidd

            Wow this is absolutely hilarious! Everyone, behold a ps fanboy that doesn’t know the differences between a PS2 and PS3. I’ll humor him though.

            The original Xbox had a failure rate below 10%. That’s hard fact and numbers easily looked up on the Internet. The PS2 only supported 480p, no upscaling, also a hard fact a simple google search will reveal even if you don’t trust Wikipedia. The original Xbox was capable of NATIVE 1080i though only a handful of games actually supported it. The original Xbox also supported Linux, but it wasn’t official support. The ps2 didn’t officially support it either. Only the PS3 supported it for a little bit before Sony removed that feature.

            And I hate to say this, but the point that truly proves you’re an idiot and doesn’t look up stuff before he says things is that Skype was released in 2003, the PS2 was released in 2000. There was apps no PSN at the time, so there was no such thing as dashboard updates or app stores on the PS2. But all that aside, it’s also common knowledge that the Xbox One is the first game console to have a skype app. It used to be a selling point of that console too.

            Now it’s totally possible you’ve just been messing with people here and we all fell for your sarcasm. But I do not believe that to be the case, so I will simply end it with the conclusion that you are an idiot and I’m surprised you’ve lasted 30 years in your industry. Word of advice next time, if you’re trying to correct someone, you shouldn’t use your personal beliefs and misinformation. Try a fact every now and then, it might feel refreshing.

          • Mike Lebowski

            Technologically speaking, there is no real difference between 1080i and 480p except how the resolution is achieved. Nothing to brag about. HDD for ps2 wasn’t released until FFXI, well after Xbox debuted, and still was sold separately from the system, which, as determined by context, is what he meant by included. As I said in another response, my conclusion is not my own but rather is assimilated from every gaming resource at the time. The only reason Sony made the slim is because the original was an abject failure and broke down so much the media turned on Sony (rightfully so) until it was fixed. Gamers made their voices heard, but it wasn’t until the media jumped on board that Sony did something. RROD was popular to talk about, especially so in your crowd, but was still not nearly as invasive as ps2 problems. When the slim released many people repurchased ps2, including those who had to purchase multiples already, helping to account for inflated sales, and being that the second version was far more reliable, drove down the overall failure rate. Whereas the Xbox slim was mostly a design change not necessitating repurchasing the same generation console because, for most people, the Xbox proved quite reliable. Factor in that Microsoft actually ponied up and fixed a great majority of those manufacturer defective systems years after ownership (which got counted towards failure rate) and that the POSony forced their fans to purchase brand new consolesconsoles (actually and falsely lowering overall failure rate), albeit at a discounted raterate, justifying the purchase so as not to waste the hundreds or thousands already spent at that point on games/accessories and the all important time invested in said games. Same story as PSX, and from what i understand, PS3. Yeah, Sony knows gamers, they just don’t care about them at all.

          • Mirimon

            Stop…. just stop… I won’t even bother with the rest of your post, especially since one of your first major poi ts was a claim that xbox could do 1080i first while ps was still at 480p, and when you were proven wrong on that point (and all others) you then post to claim it is unimportant and the same?…nothing to “brag about”…..when that was in fact what you were trying to brag about?

            This alone shows not only that you refuse to accept facts that disprove all of your claims and beleifs, but that you lack any actual facts in the first place.

            L2 debate.

          • Mike Lebowski

            So, maybe you should read the names of people that post. That wasn’t me making that claim. As for the comparison 1080i and 480p, I misremembered anyways, it’s 720p that matches 1080i. My bad.

            I like that move. Pretend not to read things you can’t dispute. Not what I would call honorable, but certainly worth pointing out as clever

          • Mirimon

            No, you supported and agreed with it.

            Misremebering isn’t the issue, being mistaken when making a statement, and then trudging on ignorantly when corrected all while still, even now, not being mature enough to aknowledge and apologize for your error are the issues with your post.

            As for not reading the rest, I was not pretending, I literally didn’t read it. Why would I bother wasting more time on erroneous drivel given how incorrect and poor your prior posts were and how even in that prior post you cane out of the chute completely in error…..seriously, would anybody who rationally values their time bother? I didn’t, I honestly stated as much.

          • Mike Lebowski

            Actually, I’m the only who said that 1080i is virtually the same as 480p. I had my doubts, as this is something I learned probably more than a decade ago, so I looked it up. Without being prompted I came here and corrected myself. This was not pointed out to me, nor was there ever even a response concerning that statement. You went on about something someone else said, which is why told you to read the names, and I actually never spoke on that either. So, check again, because you’re confusing me with another poster.

            I even told you I didn’t say that and to read the names of people making comments. Still, you insist on “trudging on ignorantly when corrected”. I was actually enjoying our banter until that. Get real or get lost. I won’t participate in childish games

          • Mirimon

            Go read your own posts, like everything else youbseem to have forgotten that as well.

            It’s ok, I don’t expect you to man up.

          • Mike Lebowski

            I actually have. Granted, I knew I said no such thing, I took the time to verify before responding, twice. I’ll now give you the opportunity to post my comment you refer to. I’ll be happy to man up.

          • Mike Lebowski

            Not sure how that changes anything at this point considering I agreed after your accusation. I hold true to the thought itself, just didn’t put that out there yet until then

        • Eric Woodley

          You might want to make you don’t keep mixing up the PS2 with the PS3 . PS2 had a processor just north of 200MHz, the Xbox had a 700 MHz custom Pentium III and Nvidia graphics chip. Even the GameCube had more power than the PS2.

        • Mike Lebowski

          Just so you know, ps2 is the single most defective large developer system ever. Broke all kinds of records, the likes of which we’ll never see again. I worked at GameStop during that time and I had to field a lot of complaints. Piece of junk, it was

          • BraceKendu

            Three words: “Disc Read Error”
            Worked @ Gamestop too. We dealt with tons of these.

          • Mike Lebowski

            Perhaps. Not sure what exactly your point is…. Unless you’re trying to say that was actually worse (still, no). I’ve known people have one system throughout the lifespan of their respective console (both publishers we’re discussing), and others go through multiple. The difference between your statement and mine is that my conclusion was not based on my personal experience, rather by knowing just about everything I possibly could about the industry (at least going by the presentation of the ideas). Heck, you’re not even in the same generation as this thread. Anyways, I was just trying to respond to flat out lies, not really wanting to start something (figured I’d end with that, trying to walk back a little of the smart ass rather than trying to rewrite my post, again)

          • BraceKendu

            I was simple co-signing on your observations on the often forgot defective rate of the PS2. I have both current gen systems (because I’m an adult with a job/disposable income) and find all this bickering to be childish Confirmation Bias at its finest. Looking to rationalize why the plastic box they bought is better, thus they are smarter than the other guys. Both of these companies are for profit corporations that couldn’t care less unless it impacts the bottom line.
            Brand loyalty, like religion, is for the weak minded.

          • Mike Lebowski

            Oh, sheet. My bad. I completely misread that. Having read it correctly now I see the point was obvious. And I see how I did that. Somehow, when scrolling back up to reread I went too far and read somebody else’s response, hence why some of that may not have even applied to what you said. I’ve been doing stupid things like since I quit smoking the ganj. Please excuse me in my error.

          • BraceKendu

            No problem bruh.

          • Mirimon

            No, that would be the 360… having set those records, which the xb1 could not break though not for lack of trying. Your anecdotal claims to working at gamestop not only mean nothing to the fact that the ps2 had less than a 5% hardware failure rate during its expected life time, but only serve to discredit anything you have to say about gaming.

            Stop xbotting… it lost and so have you.

          • Lane Plummer

            I’m gonna jump in the middle of this and say that a console can be a POS or a brilliant creation crafted from God’s loincloth: the games are what matter, and if the console isn’t supported with enough quality games, then it will fail.

            The reason why the Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii stayed afloat last gen? Because all companies pumped out quality games. The original Xbox was hands down the best-made console. But it’s my least favorite of that generation simply because all I remember playing on it were R6 and Halo (and a few other titles, I’m not being ignorant there.) All Microsoft had to represent them were shooters, and they suffered from a lack of identity. It’s fair though, as it was their first console.

            The PS2 was gliding and soaring from momentum. They established themselves a group of talented developers (Insomniac, ND, Sucker Punch) and created characters and games that would last forever.

            GameCube could say the same. Metroid, Super Smash, when RE4 was an exclusive…. Mmmm!

            Point is, no one remembers a console’s faults when the games are so good. We can argue how the 3DO was more powerful than the N64, or how the Dreamcast dominated marketed consoles in terms of strength. But I don’t look on them so highly as I do their competitors because their brute strength wasn’t put to use with good games.

      • Darth Vader™

        Exactly.

      • as much as I liked the X360 and as much as I love the new XB1, I wasnt a fan of the original Xbox IMO. (but I knew it was the most powerful… but I used to prefer the PS2 and the Gamecube back then)

    • jelani noel

      This is the milky way. Why are you here??

    • Lane Plummer

      That’s actually a really good point. Remember the #3DO and the #Dreamcast. They’ll never be #forgotten

        #Yes.

    • Jop

      Uhm no, the Vita doesn’t even support stereoscopic 3D.

      • 3D stereoscopic in handheld is hard to use. I play on PSVita in local transport – train, underground, city bus, etc. and there is no place for play 3D stereoscopic games – many people inside transport, after 5-15 minutes I have to change the transport, console&game on standby, etc.
        .
        Handheld is not to use in home. But 3D stereoscopic on the eg. PS4 is cool!

  • Zoe Butcher

    Hahaha. Dice Dev sure was in a trollish mood yesterday, but I’ll tell you one thing. He wasn’t lying. The XBone is both the less powerful console and only the third choice gamers would pick over a PS4 or a PC gaming rig.

        I have an Xbox what u say is true but I wouldn’t call it a great advantage. Sony tbh most likely if they want can allow remote play to any mobile device, TV or PC. the technology with PS Now and remote play where modders can bypass xperia only restriction is already there. Reason Sony hasn’t done anything is most likely because they’re still far ahead in sales so there’s no need for a backup plan and want to continue expanding their Playstation Ecosystem. They don’t want to blur the lines between the console and PC, and most likely will think about that in the next generation console, where maybe with new technology can run PC like graphics? Who knows. Xbox won’t catch up to the PS4, they just need to focus on their games and not gimmick features and they will do fine. Phil Spencer is doing a decent job right now future proofing

        • Mike Lebowski

          Good thoughts. I’m excited about what Microsoft has coming for us, including those “bonus” features people have been wanting. Yes, games are still the focus, but many of us take full advantage of MS not being lazy in the console war :) Sorry Sony fans, it’s just been a while since Sony innovated (still waiting for that flex controller)

          • Dylan Harris

            That’s my problem with the ps4. There are only a hand full of great exclusives.

          • Mike Lebowski

            Sony/devs tried that last generation and it backfired. Sony would have went bankrupt if not for ps4 hitting big. Don’t forget, they lost nearly what we’re paying now on EACH ps3 sold for a long time. They’ve got chops, for sure, but I don’t think they can keep up from here on out without some major changes. Third party support was always crucial to the success of a console. Doesn’t have to be exclusives, just existent. Big part of why Nintendo has had their issues competing on home consoles. Great games, all first party though

          • XbotMK1

            “Sony would’ve went bankrupt if not for the PS4 hitting big”

            False. Most of Sony’s profits come from other things besides the PS4.

            They were selling the PS3 at a loss last gen but this gen they are not selling the PS4 at a loss. The fact that Sony invested alot into first party exclusives last gen is a positive to the system. Not a negative.

            The question is, why are you obsessed with a company’s money? Unless you’re a Microsoft fanboy, shouldn’t you be looking at the value of the product and consumer point of view instead?

          • Mike Lebowski

            Used to be that way. Sony has seen its quality decline and competition increase across the board. Lost trust among many consumers. They didn’t need the ps4 to hit as big as it did, but they needed it. How is it that you can dispute on a company’s finances and claim the counter argument is an effort of obsession in the same post? I guess you’re really not comprehending what people are saying they like about Xbox. The value of having a gaming system that produces the exact same gaming experience as yours with loads of extra features and constant updates that don’t require repurchasing the same generation console to enjoy. If you would maybe try to listen a bit instead trying to just be right all the time, you may not have had to ask that question. Far be it from me to be the one to tell you, you won’t listen. I’m instantly written off as deficient when you learn I’ve achieved a different set of preferences than you. At least, I have yet to see a single instance of you agreeing with a single thought coming from an Xhead.

          • Alan Conn

            Hes obv an ms fanboy. Just read the thread and u will see.

          • XbotMK1

            “been a while since Sony innovated”

            Is that why Microsoft has done nothing but mimic Sony this gen? Xbox Live is still behind and nearly everything Microsoft has done is copying Nintendo or Sony. Did you read about how Microsoft coppied Scuf so Scuf now has exclusive rights to the elite controller? When was the last time Microsoft innovated?

          • Mike Lebowski

            You can thank ms for console online gaming, voice activated commands, pop up system menu, achievements, built in HDD, built in networking, and soon to come, dx12, cloudshare processing, near full pc/xbone gaming integration, which hopefully includes cross platform online play, m/k support (may have already gone live), and bringing back BC is just plain cool of them to do. Sure beats taking it away after the first wave after selling all your fans on it. What a bitch move

    • Dylan Harris

      Not me. If I want a truly powerful system id go with a pc. Nope, I have over 50 games on my Xbox one, with a bunch more coming. How does ps4 specs hamper my enjoyment with a system that does far more then just games? Nah bro, you mean those that are inclined to go Sony or believe all of the hype. Hell the ps4s exclusives have mostly been trash besides last of us, blood borne, and uncharted. Open your eyes.

      • Evil_Annie_2015

        Bloodborne was trash. It sold less than 2M in a 25M install base, so even them did not care much for it :)

        • XbotMK1

          If sales determine the quality of a game then I guess every Xbox One exclusive is even worse trash.

          • Darth Vader™

            No, he meant that it sold to a small fraction to a much bigger userbase.

          • XbotMK1

            And my point still stands. We can play this game all day. Bloodborne was a new unproven IP and it’s a spiritual sucessor to Demon’s Souls/Dark Souls which have allways targeted smaller hardcore audiences over casual. And yet, Microsoft’s flagship casual racer Forza Horizon 2 barely broke 1 million according to VG Chartz.

            You must be another Microsoft fanboy with the way you’re defending his dumb comment with your dumb comment, simply to try and get any little positive point you can for Xbox.

          • Darth Vader™

            And here you are going around the internet damage controlling every Xbox article I see. Does VGChartz even count digital sales anyway?

          • The Watcher

            So for you the SNES and the Genesis are not consoles….okay…..fine ….whatever.
            The usual xbotic logic.

          • Mike Lebowski

            Or more like they aren’t in the time frame he chose, which, coincidentally, began immediately after the ones you presented. Usual purposed misunderstanding of another person’s comments allowing you to justify personal attacks and your claim of superiority

        • Mike Lebowski

          Both were 16 bits, not much difference otherwise in performance/output

          • The Watcher

            Yeah right.
            Not much difference, eh?

            Both are video game consoles like the PS4 vs Xbone, no matter how you down play facts. Isn’t that the subject at hand?
            And the more powerful console won that generation in terms of power, quality of games and unit sales.
            But that is okay because I love the Genesis more than the SNES because I love the Sega arcade exclusives like Streets of Rage and Shinobi.
            I take facts as they are and don’t twist them publicly just to make me feel better.

          • Mike Lebowski

            You’re trying to make an argument where there is none. I stated a fact which is not disputed by your response, simply in the asking of the original statement. That doesn’t mean the irrelevant rant that follows makes any difference. All I’ve been saying is that xbone and ps4 will reproduce the exact same gaming experience as multi platform games go. Not sure what that has to do with my comment as it were, and good for you for enjoying the Sega. I owned both, played both and enjoyed both. You can keep your baseless attack, save it for a time when it actually applies. Why be so callous anyways? An odd stance to take considering this thread is completely irrelevant to life

    • zainfazal3000

      It’s not about excuses. He’s wrong. If power was all that mattered in the console war then the original Xbox should have demolished the PS2. The Vita should have destroyed the DS.

      The reason why the Xbox One is struggling against the PS4 isn’t because of power there are other more contributing factors.

      This guy worked on Battlefield 4 and Battlefront, both are 900p on the PS4 so the PS4 isn’t that powerful either. Sony fanboys can laugh at the fact that These games run at 720p on the Xbox One, but I’m going to look at them and say but they aren’t 1080p on the PS4 either ….and isn’t that what you were promised? Or is 900p the new 1080p now?

      Star Wars Battlefront and Battlefied don’t run at 1080p on the PS4 sony fanboys need to stop bragging as if they do.

      • Fozymandias

        Actually you’re wrong. Battlefront runs at 720p on Xbone and 900p on PS4. So as you can see it’s the more powerful console and always will be. Xbone struggles just to get a resolution higher than 720p in most games other than maybe 1 or 2. In fact there are NO games on PS4 that run that low, 900p is the lowest resolution on PS4. Again because it’s a more powerful console. You’re welcome.

        • Evil_Annie_2015

          Read his comment again and edit yours where needed.

        • efnet

          Funny how you ignored that guys comment about you being too poor to own both lol
          Broke ass calrton

          • XbotMK1

            Funny how you think anyone who doesn’t own both is poor or broke because you’re a raging Microsoft fanboy.

            Funny how you don’t call anyone who only owns an Xbox One poor or broke. You only say it to people who don’t kiss up to Microsoft.

            Funny how when you can’t deal with the facts or people who state facts, you call them broke or poor.

            Owning both doesn’t make you immune to criticism or automatically right in a debate, especially when you’re a raging Microsoft fanboy who does nothing but demonstrates hypocrisy in his/her viewpoints, holds double standards to one platform over the other, and when you only agree with every negative Sony comment or pro Microsoft comment and everything Xbox related despite the fact that Microsoft has lied, backtracked with the Xbox One, and even admitted it.

          • ..

            There you go again describing yourself again,
            Sad fanboy, scared of a console you claim to be so inferior. 10 million sales lead still isn’t enough for you to lay off your lies and BS

          • Fozymandias

            Well said

          • Fozymandias

            You’ve mentioned that before and I told you there’s no reason for me to own an Xbone when I have the superior console. Do I need 2 phones too?

          • efnet

            Oh Jesus not only are you poor you’re dumb too (smh)
            Do phones have exclusives ? I mean you can make as many excuses as you want but a real gamer cares about games no matter the console it’s on….you use the ps4 as if it’s some sort of life accomplishment or something lol
            Sony is profiting not you ?

          • Fozymandias

            Not a life accomplishment but as a gamer I’m happy with the games and performance. Again why do I NEED a Xbone too??????????

          • Joe_HTH

            You have a superior console in terms of hardware power, but your superior console has a shit lineup of exclusive games.

          • Fozymandias

            And yet nothing on Xbone has even kept my interest for more than a few seconds much less make me wanna buy an Xbone.

          • Alan Conn

            And xbones is so much better?!?!?! HAHAHA!!! THAT shit is comical!!!

        • trystanidog

          Yeah, but feature wise the xbox is ahead. I have both consoles and theres alot of stuff thats on my xbox thats not on the ps4. One of the main things is multitasking. Its the most powerful console this generation, but xbox one does more with its hardware. And tbh i tried star wars battlefront on both consoles and it looked exactly the same. The xbox one also has the better controller in my opinion. Yes the ps4 is more powerful but xbox is way better in features. They say ps4 is ahead of xbox, but i say xbox is ahead of ps4. I’m trying not to biased anymore since i own both consoles. Im speaking the truth here. I have played both consoles extensively and xbox wins hands down in features. Also this console generation is going to be a normal one, so expect a new console in about 2-3 years.

          • Fozymandias

            Yeah Xbone has a lot of features…big whoop! None of those features benefit real gamers. Gamers just wanna play games and that’s all that matters. Xbone is behind in that department and always will be. There is no debate when even people in the industry agree so just give it up. And don’t even start with the controller debate because everyone has an opinion but overall the PS4 controller always gets more votes. Stop defending Xbone because you have no real hard facts to help you out.

          • Mike Lebowski

            Gamers just wanna play games? If that’s how you feel then what difference does it make whether it’s on ps4 or xb1? You have a more powerful box that does the same thing for games, but less for the overall home entertainment that us gamers also enjoy. My TV has better options in that regard. Glad your happy. Also glad to know ignorance really is bliss, willful or not

        • Titsmcgee

          name one game thats 1080p with LOCKED 60fps on ps4. U cant. there are none. But not the case on x1..

          • Fozymandias

            Really? Not the case on Xbone? Funny how you didn’t name what Xbone games are 1080p 60 fps….

          • Titsmcgee

            Forza 5. forza 6 halo 5. oops..

          • Fozymandias

            3 games? That’s impressive.

          • Titsmcgee

            0 games on ps4, thats even more impressive

          • Fozymandias

            Lmao right there are 0 games on PS4….what an idiot

          • Titsmcgee

            Yep. Zero games on ps4 that are true locked 60fps. You fucking downsyndrome tard. Never said ps doesn’t have games.

          • Fozymandias

            Diablo 3, FIFA soccer, Battlefield 4 and Hardline, Final Fantasy X, Journey, Metal Gear GZ and Phantom Pain, Metro Redux, MLB 14, Minecraft, NBA 2k14, Rocket League, the Last of Us, Tomb Raider….all 60 fps dumb ass and I even skipped a few. Now you can stfu and go play with your useless Kinect.

          • Titsmcgee

            Every single one of those games have fps drops. Not one of those are a locked 60fps. Which is what I’m clearly talking about. Those games are NOT LOCKED AT 60fps.

          • jay (Fragnon) stein

            you idiot…

        • Dylan Harris

          In most games? That’s BS. Out of my 50 plus games, over 3 quarters of them are native 1080p. Welcome to 2015.

          • Fozymandias

            Name those games….or are you like every typical Xbone fanboy who claims to have games that run at 1080p 60 fps on Xbone but always fail to mention anything other than Forza…..I’m waiting…

          • Mike Lebowski

            Actually, we’re waiting. You were asked to provide first, yet even after immaturely throwing the question back AND having it answered (sufficiently, I might add, to counter your request for more), you still bloviate and impede the progress of this discussion. Oh, I get it now. You’re just trying to be like Sony….cute

          • jay (Fragnon) stein

            Yeah but they run at 30- FPS…

        • llTommoll

          In most games? You do realise that there is more games at 1080p on Xbox than there is any other resolution?

          • Fozymandias

            Funny cuz I only count 7 Xbone games that run at 1080p versus PS4 where every CURRENT game other than AC Unity and both Battlefield games run at 1080p. Unless you have proof to back up your claims….

    • Ian Brooks

      You’re just too poor to own both. lol

    • The Watcher

      …and make a fool out of themselves.

  • No really

    No Xbox is just as powerful, don’t listen to one of the best game developers in the world. There is no difference between 720p and 1080p. None at all. Walmart 60hz and 720p HD for the win!

    • Name

      Complete and utterly false…sorry dude but there is a HUGE difference not only between 720p but also 900p and 1080p. I own both systems and it’s a crock of shit excuse I’ve seen from the Xbox fanboys (I’m a fan of both). Luckily most of the new releases are 1080p anyways.

        Yeah but, if you look at the games side by side. It looks exactly the same 720p-900p. Also 720p and 900p is nothing to be proud of. So if you say ps4 is better, thats not saying much. Its still pathetic.

      Their is huge difference been 1080p and 720p xbox one cannot even do 1080p 30 fps let alone 1080/60 Xbox one actually performs the same as the 360 people who bought it wasted their money. Most PS4 games are 1080p/60p.

  • Samy

    who cares !!! As long as we get good deal on games , free AAA games on xbox gold or playstation plus , its all good…

  • efnet

    At this point I dont think most people care really (Xbox fans)
    I mean take me for example , I have a lot of the same third party titles on both x1 and ps4 and even though the ps4 is the strongest console I keep finding myself spending majority of my time with the x1 (shrugs) i just prefer it as my main console …

    • Name

      I agree. I own both and each has its advantage. Ps4 is slightly more powerful but I slightly prefer my Xbox…

    • XbotMK1

      If you didn’t care, then you simply wouldn’t comment. You’ve only been damage controlling for the Xbox One ever since 2013 even though Microsoft has lied, backtracked, and has done nothing but mimic the PS4 which means nobody can really take anything you say seriously. You’re not an Xbox fan. You’re obviously an Xbox fanboy.

            You are a Sony drone cause you post links from other Sony fanboys. Cause you go to every MS article and post what your delusional mind thinks are fact.

            How is supporting Sony pro consumer. So they can take things away you paid for mid generation?
            How does your second OS on PS3 work? Not like it was something they did with a new model release, mine was removed via forced update.

            I’m also not saying Microsoft is better, but pull your head out of you a**. These companies are here to make money. They are selling 2 different products.

            You say ms lies about the cloud and dx12 what lies have they told. Are they not real. Are these 2 things coming. Yes. Do we know how they will perform no. Do they market it to sound good. Of course. That’s marketing.

            Does Sony do the same thing. Yes. So much so they were sued over KZ not being 1080p like they claimed.

He actually conceded that your beloved ps4 is slightly more powerful by some standards, yet for also expressing an affinity towards the “other” system he was relentlessly attacked by Sony fanboys. While you’ve proven you aren’t capable of separating your preconceived notions from actuality and forfeit any and all credulity you may have had before I arrived, the rest of us simply write you off as a literal crazy person (true or not, you do sound like it here).

    It seems like the worst fear I hear from Ponies is that the Xbox could in fact catch up! It seems that after the 360 ripped the PS3 apart that booty juice still resides in their mouths and they bought a console that basically uses their GPU for just complete storage! What these lames don’t understand is the XBOX doesn’t !!!!!! And Sony thought MS would just take their time with it but they haven’t
    Every month updates

    Updates

    Uuuuuupdates!!

    It just scares these little mice of men!

    Never heard of folks having such comfort bring up something that lack thereof! If the Xbox is garbage
    What you worrying about???? Do y’all not think it can sell 6-8 million consoles this holiday hahahaha. Everyone thought TITANFALL wouldn’t sell right guys!! Over 10 million now!!

    Tell me something how does 23 million consoles sold globally and the PS4 can’t get a number 1 game let alone an exclusive to stick around and generate 5 million sells easy????????!??? That’s the greatest mystery oh no it’s not!! These little kids asking their parents for a ps4 is hilarious!! Japanese indies like y’all aren’t playing those lame ass games!! Stop it! All those Sony and the Masters of REMASTERS stop it! A bundle with a PS3 game for 60.00 selling the bundle for 350.00 a deal how??? What greatness are y’all waiting for???? What’s great about the PS4

    Line what it can’t do that the Xbox can do and it’s just pathetic

    Talk about the hardware dummies software always beats hardware cause in point

    Who do you know walks around with a WALKMAN anymore when we had MP3’s

      If thats the case then all X1 is is a 360 that can reach 900p. Only reason X1 gets updates is because the console was rushed and MS left out a ton of stuff so they could launch the X1 in time to meet the PS4. No amount of updates will fix that underpowered tech underneath the hood of X1, It will always carry the stigma of being the weaker of the two and at best be a distant second and I mean DISTANT after 2016.

            Saw this guy and automatically thought of you and xbotmk1 lol

          • JCheezy

            Hahah. I was right on the money with the lame ass comment that you would post back. Hahahaha so typical of an unoriginal bastard. To be honest, I didn’t read any of your long ass comment because all your shit is boring as hell. Next

          • FloridaSun72

            You know you read all my stuff. Your replies say it all

      • baaaaaah

        Forza 1080p 60fps
        Driveclub 25fps and it sucks
        Halo 5 1080p 60fps
        Uncharted 30fps no coop and a gimmick multiplayer.
        Pos4 sucks

        • FloridaSun72

          Xbox = no Street Fighter V, no Bloodborne, no Uncharted 4, no multiplats that are on par with the PS4, PSN = cheaper subscription with much better quality of free games monthly. 3rd party developers admitting X1’s short comings are bad enough but MS’s own people in charge dont think the X1 will catch the sales and popularity of the PS4.

          A terrible reveal for the X1, the worst anti consumer/gamer policies ever introduced in the history of gaming, forcing a peripheral(Kinect) on early adopters and lying to their faces by saying its an integral part of the console as a lame excuse to fork over an extra 100$ only to abandon it and do a number of 180s when pre order numbers were abysmal. Dont kid yourselves xbots it wasnt because how unhappy you all were it was the lack of dollar signs.

          • baaaaaah

            Street fighter ??? = 0 interest just like killer instinct

            Bloodborne = 0 interest in single player hacknslash. Coop 13 fps slide show on pos4.

            Uncharted = 30 fps single player only again. Multiplayer mode is a gimmick.

            Multiplats…go read mad max digital foundry analysis. Best on Xbox one.

            Last paragraph..blah blah nonsense

            Baaaaah sheepboy, pos4 blows.

          • FloridaSun72

            Its not your fault you have zero skill when it comes to fighting games. Fighting game haters are usually the ones with no skill no matter how hard they try. I guess you wouldnt have any interest since its never coming to X1,

            Bloodborne is awesome and in fact one of the easier epic games from FROM software. Too hard for you? Its ok alot of gamers cant hack it.

            Oh boy theres actually ONE multiplat that gives the PS4 version a run for its money? 1 out of 1000 isnt that great but i guess u gotta take wins where u find them.

            Your really going to sit there and disregard my last paragraph which states everything thats wrong with the X1 from launch to hardware which isnt like a bunch of made up opinions. These are actual facts but drinking too much of that MS kool aid makes your eyes glaze over and let it go in one ear and out the other.

          • Mike Lebowski

            You made two points in that last paragraph then claim it includes so much information as to adequately explain every single notion that affected the sales of xb1 negatively? Wow, dude. That’s almost as impressive as it is unbelievable you can reach that highly inflated conclusion of your own woefully lacking statement

          • baaaaah

            You a wasta my time. Here’s my response sheepboy….Xbox one has better games than pos4. That is fact in my book. Let me know when pos4 has something to compete with Forza 6 and Halo 5. Until then shut your sheephole and wait for uncharted at 25 fps.

          • FloridaSun72

            I guess you like playing games with zero originality since Halo and Forza is all u got.

          • Robert Kelly

            Uncharted 4 is 1080 /60p Sony and Naughty Dog have confirmed. Xbox one would overheat if hey ever ported it over to it.

          • FloridaSun72

            Still better than owning a “next gen” console with last gen resolutions and same old games just a new number after the title.

          • Mike Lebowski

            Decent point about kinect but the rest of that is just fluff. Not a meaningful, effective piece of information to be had here people

        • wastheman

          DriveClub is better than Forza FACT.
          Uncharted amazing port. FACT
          Gears of war and Halo horrible ports. FACT

          • baaaaaah

            Forza 6 metacritic of 87 with many perfect 100s.

            Turdclub metacritic of 69 with 0 perfect 100s and quite a few 40s and 50s

            Couldn’t care less for remakes on either console. Gears Halo and uncharted remasters were all well done tho.

            Sad the next uncharted is only 30fps while Halo 5 is 60fps.

            You a sheep….FACT

          • Darth Vader™

            No, those are opinions. You do know what those are, right?

          • XbotMK1

            Why did you stated that to someone who posted a pro PlayStation exclusive comment, but totally ignored the fanboy he was replying to who lied about Driveclub? It doesn’t run 25 fps. It runs at a near locked 30.

          • Steven Hiller

            There’s no such thing as locked 30fps. What Sony should have said is capped 30fps. And drive club I known to suffer drops below 25fps.

          • Darth Vader™

            At least his was more factual. Same could be said to you: Why do you ignore every PS fanboy?

          • llTommoll

            Driveclub is better than forza? Hahahahaha. What you been smoking?

    • Id

      You sound pretty upset about the inferiority of the xbox one.

      Just about nothing you spat out there is based in reality. You are an abject fuckwit.

      • This Guy

        A troll that spends his life trolling Xbox articles shouldn’t make any comments about living in reality.

        • efnet

          Because he’s to broke to spend his time actually buying games and playing them…

    • Mirimon

      Psst, delusional bot… even your prophet, spencer, said xbox will not catch ps4 and admitted defeat…

      • efnet

        Psst where you at troll…..

    • wastheman

      the 360 did not rip the ps3 apart tf, ps3 had wayyy better exclusive games than the 360, 360 had the shet games

  • Rafael Miranda

    Is not about how much powerful the console is. Is about console exclusive games. Uncharted 4 is going to show what the PS4 is capable of. Xbone already reached his prime with Halo 5.

    • JCheezy

      You say that Xbone already reached it prime with Halo 5??? First of all its not out yet shit stain. You also claimed Uncharted 4 “will” show what PS4 is made of??? Also not out yet. Great facts Einstein. I’m glad you represent the “other” console because I’d be embarrassed to call you a Comrad.

      • Evil_Annie_2015

        You had no mercy on Rafael Miranda. Lol

        • JCheezy

          Yeah, maybe I took it a little far with the shit stain comment. Lol

  • Id

    Facts are facts, the xbox one is an inferior console no matter how butthurt that makes the xbot defense force.

    • Darth Vader™

      Way to sound like a fanboy…

      • Id

        I’m a fanboy.. of Nintendo.

        Mainly PC gamer though, consoles are an afterthought in my life and are rarely touched.

        Logic and understanding of hardware limitations has no relevance to your console preference. You are either an xbox owner who understands their console is limited and accepts it, or you are another delusional xbot who thinks math and science are a lie, and it’s all just a conspiracy.

        • Fweds

          ..

          • Id

            fake upvotes..? I’m sure you think the stronger GPU and superior DDR5 memory in the PS4 is also fake. Thanks for proving my point about xbots and their conspiracies, and stay butthurt.

    • chillgreg

      Sad little f*ck you are

      • Id

        Sad that I acknowledge facts and do not participate in the fake reality xbox fanboys live in?

        Nah, the “sad little f*ck” is you, mouth-breather.

            Sad that you feel anything towards anyone for enjoying your own choices, really. Can’t be that great if you’re so angry all the time

          • Id

            It’s sad that you can’t read or comprehend statements that you feel the need to comment on.

            It’s common, but still sad.

          • Mike Lebowski

            Spot on that I misread a comment, showing off that reading ability you’re so proud of. Too bad one instance doesn’t mean I am incapable of reading or understanding, as I aptly displayed for the world to see shortly after. Ironically, your lack of comprehension leads you to comment in that same vain you wish I had. At least mine was based in some sort of reality, even if that reality was entirely perceptual. I concede, I’m not the perfect being you justifiably assumed I was. Thanks for the vote of confidence bro

          • Id

            Translation: You caught me being an ignorant peasant commenting on things I don’t understand, so now I will try and flip the situation to make you seem like the bad guy.

            *Golf Clap*

          • Mike Lebowski

            Translation: I have no real argument or credibility at this point so I’ll just misinterpret what you said as the exact opposite because at the end you added a sarcastic comment that I can portray as evidence of your arrogance somehow invalidating your most recent act of admitting to a mistake which is actually a sure sign of humility.

          • Id

            People who can’t read a statement before they comment on it aren’t allowed to translate anything but their minimum wage-fueled checking account.

            I could care less about your feelings; my argument is rock-solid as is my credibility among all non-biased gamers. You are in denial over the fact your console is inferior by all metrics, mostly due to bad decisions by Microsoft like gimping your GPU & RAM for the worthless and abandoned kinect.

            You are butthurt because I pointed out the truth, a truth that upsets you. That is why you lashed out with a comment that had no basis in reality; having had nothing to do with what I said. You can keep making excuses, you can keep attempting at crafting a strawman, but the facts will never change and your console’s inferior hardware will never be upgraded.

          • Mike Lebowski

            So how do you explain that none of your responses to me concern nothing about the substance of my intent and meaning?
            Me: I feel pity that you literally think yourself better than another human being because they enjoy a decision they made AND it is not the same as the one you made.
            You: you made a mental error and must stupid. Haha.
            Me: yes, I did make a mistake and no, despite your pleasure in insisting, does not make me stupid. Also, people do that and you should, at your age, understand that and know it is completely irrelevant to aptitude.
            You: (I’ll correct the vp so you are speaking as you) even though you were trying to stop me from being an abusive ass you are still stupid for making a mistake and are a bad guy for trying to make me look like the bad guy *crying*
            Me: (again, correcting the vp so I can speak as me) dude, that’s not even an argument and you are literally describing YOUR actions, not mine. Not only that, but your TACTIC to deceive others about what I’m saying won’t work because they can read what I wrote for themselves AND understand the statement being made.
            You: another witless joke about your error. You make minimum wage. PS4 has a negligible power advantage I love to think is effective in the real world. I don’t care about your feelings. Useless opinion presented as fact. Random accusation claiming you’re only talking to me for reasons I assume I’m getting out there before you can point out that it is not my opinion you were attacking, rather my lack of overall character.

            This has become tiresome with you. Either read what the fuck I write or leave me the fuck alone. This is not a discussion, it’s an attempt to decipher the mind of a six year old’s reasoning. All you do is tell people that they’re doing what you’re doing and you find that entertaining. Tell me again how you have credibility in any circle? Fyi, people who agree with you are not automatically unbiased. And btw, there isn’t a person on Earth who can affect my feelings, don’t be so presumptuous

          • Id

            I, nor anybody else, will ever read that wall of garbage.

            tl;dr if you are stupid enough to comment on things you can’t read or comprehend, you are probably stupid enough to own an xbox one.

            Stay butthurt, xbot.

          • Mike Lebowski

            Again? What sort of childish mind frame did you get you stuck in when daddy pulled his pacifier out your mouth? Take this as an example and explicit proof that it indeed has no bearing on your decision making process what one actually says. I’m not the loser here. When you decide information is incorrect without even knowing what that information is, you’ve lost. And I’m not talking about cool points, or this argument we find ourselves in, I’m talking about life. You can’t even do yourself the service of taking in information. And with that, I’ll stop wasting my time in the attempt to get you to realize you are your own enemy you stupid fuck. I’m not here for me, I’ve gained nothing at all from listening to you, I’ve been trying to help. It’s not an Sony/MS thing I’ve been on you about, v it’s your lacking, neanderthalic sense of reasoning that doesn’t allow you to LEARN

          • Id

            You seem upset.

            Please, tell us more.

          • Mike Lebowski

            Oh, I’ve provided you plenty to think about if you were so capable. I even threw in a vulgar personal attack, just for you so you could have what you’ve been aiming for. Unbeknownst to you, I was still able to add constructive advice within. Enjoy your life, child, I won’t be responding again, I’ve given you far more than you deserve already

          • Id

            The only thing you have given me to think about is whether or not you work for McDonalds or Burger King.

            People like are you are the worst type of scum; mouth-breathing neanderthals that comment on stories without reading them and respond to comments without comprehending them. You are the type of person that makes a cause look worse, not better. You are the guy who gets told to shut up by the person you are trying to defend, because you are hurting them not helping.

            Unfortunately, bad parenting and the lack of a proper education leads to people like you. Lemmings, completely devoid of logical thought or the ability to critically assess a situation. The end result is you; a loser, doomed to a minimum wage job and a life of disappointment.

            Yes, a weak and under-powered gaming console is the least of your concerns. Focus on improving your ability to articulate a position that is based on reality, and in the future you may not be laughed out of the room.

    • Dzian Kolack

      Ooh a flame war. I want in! :D
      Xbox sucks. :D Sorry! It always has though. I don’t really care about specs (I grew up on Nintendo) but I care about games (again Nintendo wins) I was thinking to myself, “I should buy a PC.” So I did. It’s awesome and all, but now I’m thinking about getting a console. Back to what I was saying, it’s all about the games.
      Xbox looks pretty cool with Halo, but that’s basically it. It has Gears of War as well for first party games but that’s basically it. I mean Halo is just another FPS. Sure, you can argue it has a great story or you think Cortana is hot you weird mom’s basement-living twenty-something year old, but in the end I can’t see Halo alone as a reason to get an Xbox.
      Playstation has had many exclusive series. It has Uncharted (the big one), Sly Cooper, Ratchet and Clank, 2048 (no not the tile game you nerd) (also it’s a ripoff of F-Zero but whatever), so there you have it. PS4 has all those. I’m sure I left out many Xbox and Playststion exclusives but those came to mind. Mind you, I’m not counting individual exclusive games, but game series’.
      So, in the end, Playstation has more games. It also has more Japanese games than Nintendo and Xbox put together, and it’s the most powerful console on the market. Oh and did I mention it has almost every big triple A title out there? So knowing all that, I don’t understand how a single Xbox has been sold. I mean, come on. The PS4 has better specs, and although this point is mute, Sony didnt always charge for multilayer, although they do now. Xbox has always commited that evil deed for as long as I can remember. Oh and Playstation’s theme color is blue, the best of all colors, so that basically makes it win in itself :D

          • efnet

            Why you asking me ?
            If you feel like the ps4 has more games and it fits your needs then get a ps4 ?

            Shooters. That’s what got me on it

  • chris9465

    The Kinect will go down in history as the worst idea in gaming since the atari jaguar….the kinect is the sole reason the xbox one is grossly underpowered w/slow memory and weak GPU are the trade offs to having a peripheral that never had a reason to exist…..

    Now this holiday season Microsoft is on its “shouldn’t have bought an xbox one at launch” tour with all the holiday bundles they have released….If you were an early adopter of the xbox one Microsoft could careless about you (and me) because there are so few early adopters they can afford to ignore us.

    • Mike Lebowski

      They figured it out and changed game plans. Honestly, you shouldn’t be taking that personally. What’s good for all users is good for you, and that is MS focusing on what gamers want. Ultimately it’s up to game developers to make peripherals successful or not. When people say it was a bad choice, there’s really no disputing that. I, for one, don’t care to get up and jump around for my gaming pleasure.

  • Evil_Annie_2015

    Madmax, fallout, turn 10 developers all couod hit 1080p on X1, but a Dice lazy developer says something and it is all true :)

    • Fweds

      Calling him a Dev is giving him to much credit he is actually only a game Play designer.

      “Note: Kertz specifies that his tweets are his opinion only, stating “Personal Tweets, Random Musings, All Thoughts my Own.” So this is not the official position of DICE.”

  • Dairick Horton

    ^^^^^^^Xbox fanboy for life! Fuck all yall gay ass ps4 peeps. It seems all the people i meet in the real world that are playstation fans are all dueschebags. Its like sony attracts all the cynical, clueless, and mindless zombies out there that have forgotten the true treasure in gaming…..the story! And xbox deos it time and time again with the amazing stories like halo and gears of war. This is about gaming, not hardware specifics and graphic resolution arguments! This is about that feeling when you pop that achievement, or when you have that amazing off the wall moment (that you can record on the xbox one) that just makes you remember why you love to game. The nostalgia! Stop bickering people; pick up that controller and meet me on the gaming field……dueces

    • efnet

      I agree …. Xbox fan for life
      Forget them broke ass ps4 fans who need justification lol

      • Dairick Horton

        Bwahahahaa

    • Mike Lebowski

      So, yes. I like gaming community a lot more than I do Xbox community or PlayStation community. While I tend to agree about you PlayStation people, don’t fret, you’re not all dousches. And if you are, you can easily stop being one (yes, that applies to Xbox dousches as well)

  • This Guy

    So DICE, if that’s your logic, why did the Wii sell so well last green despite being the most underpowered of the three? Or that the PS2 sold so well despite suffering the exact same inferiority? Admit it, you don’t know how to get any worthwhile output out of your dated engine, people are mad that the game is 720p so you’re going on a “troll Xbox” spree.

  • Jai

    That must explain why the Wii was outsold by the Xbox 360 and PS3. Oh, wait a minute….

  • Lord Winklestein

    The fact that you fanboys on both sides are sitting here gaping each other’s buttholes about this is fucking senseless. First of all most of you can’t even spell or use proper grammar which is a testament to just how truly fucking stupid you are, and frankly I’m surprised their haven’t been more PC warriors jumping into this worthless sesspool of idiocy. I own an Xbox one and a PS4,and the PS4 just flat out outperforms the Xbox one nine times out of ten. The resolutions are typically always higher and the FPS for the most part is better. I’m so sick and tired of all the senseless Xbox one updates and glitches and bugs the console has. Developers even after 2 years still can’t figure out how to properly port an Xbox one game and utilize its technology without making a game worse than AC Unity for one simple reason, and that is that the PS4, has more raw power and developers can work with that more easily than the Xbox ones basically rushed garbage can build that they through out probably a year too early and then because of the Kinect had to weaken the specs even more. All I ever played was 360 growing up and Microsoft really disappointed me because (and mind you this is coming from a person who mostly has played Xbox all his life and was even once a giant fanboy) at the end of the day is that with the exception of halo 5, which still hasn’t even realeased yet, if your not playing every other title on a PS4, you either need to go out and buy one and get some deeper pockets or you need to just put your fanboy views aside and accept that the PS4 is better because they care about gamers, whereas the Xbox one wants to dominate your living room with all their worthless apps on a console that was built with specs that would only appeal to a five year old who is buying the fucking thing to play Disney infinity and Lego titles. If you have the money just buy a PC and if you can only get a console get a PS4 because Microsoft killed my 12+ years of loyalty with the Xbox one and despite what the fanboys things halo and sub par 720p titles won’t save this console. I rest my case, let the fuckwads and xbot threats commence as I sit and watch you shitbirds implode yourselves when the best console is completly obvious in addition the the fact the Microsoft doesn’t care about early adopters or its lifelong users like myself. And if it wasn’t for Phil spencer than and the few things he has done than Xbox already would have imploded years ago if that piece of shit fuck whore don mattrick was still shoving his 2 inch power cable up our mindless consumer butt train of fuckwads we have all become

    • Mike Lebowski

      Dude, you just completely fanboyed out. The fact you didn’t realize it makes you a mindless drone. As to your point. You actually said it yourself, they got rid of the problem and are now being led properly. Means to me that they do care AND are willing to make changes to fix issues. Not sure how Sony has shown they care about gamers more, they still follow their PSX business model, which is not exactly gamer friendly. The least you could do when rampaging on about others’ grammar usage is be sure yours is spot on. You started out pretty strong, which got my hopes up, but then came the storm of errors. Mind you, I’m not harping on your grammar, just your inability to fulfill your own standards. I think there’s a word for that…..

        Im on steam maybe 5 hours out of the week (shrugs)

            “Now why would I need to do that?”

          • efnet

            Lol you call that justifying?
            I call that having a favorite out of the two where as you only have one….well maybe you have a ps4 who knows you could be like this other guy who was a fanboy without the console lol

            That must be me. Soooo what is the point and how does it matter? Too poor to afford it until now. Again, so what? That type of attack only works on weak minded individuals and used by the even more weak minded. (I’ll save the rest for after your expected response)

          • efnet

            Wait!
            Who are you?
            I never spoke to you before

          • Mike Lebowski

            Fanboy, but haven’t got the box yet. Waiting for release of the elite

          • efnet

            Don’t sound like much of a fanboy to me…
            Sound like a gamer

          • Mike Lebowski

            Thank you. Gamer at heart, fanboy by choice. Glad I saved that portion for an expected response, for I never received it. I don’t agree with disparaging those less fortunate, but otherwise I like what you have to say. Considering your unexpected response, I’ll expound on my previous thought. Your credibility is a lot stronger without the poor folk talk. I give you full credit for not responding badly to my rebuttal and won’t relegate it to our shared preference

      • Darth Vader™

        You mean make up stuff?

        • efnet

          Lol

        • XbotMK1

          What have I made up?

          • Darth Vader™

            Pretty much everything you say.

      • ..

        You don’t validate anything, you post random Youtube videos from bozos just like you, they aren’t even popular half the time.

        You say Microsoft lies, how do they lie, DX12 is real it’s an API, obviously way over your head, Dedicated servers are real. You say they lie, so what have they lied about, Validate your lies with more than some idiot on you tube, who could be you for all we know.

      • Mike Lebowski

        Of all the responses I’ve seen next to your name, they are more apt to fit what you’re attempting to project onto others who disagree with you. Very Alinsky of youyou. also, stems from a core of dishonesty. Time for you maliceto go self reflect a little, I speak not with malicemalice, heed my words

        • XbotMK1

          So does that include your response?

          I’ve come to realize that typically one who defends raging Microsoft fanboys with a fallacy, could very well be a Microsoft fanboy.

          • Mike Lebowski

            Congratulations, but that’s not what I base my decisions on. If you’ll notice, that wasn’t an attack. Like I said, I bring no malice. I simply pointed out to you that it’s actually you projecting. Take it as advice, or not. It’s your opinion that gets relegated to meaningless if you aren’t able to separate reality from perceptive reality based on preconceived notions. Matters not to me. And I don’t limit who I direct comments to based on whether I share certain opinions. You literally make things up, conflate things to suit you, ignore validity and slew baseless attacks all for the purpose of exerting your own inflated superiority using the PS4 as a proxy. Bottom line is my comment was for your benefit, whether you choose to recognize that and try to improve yourself is on you

  • Joel Lambert

    I had a PS4 and rarely used it due to not a lot of racing, sports and first person shooters. I love the Xbox One because of the games library. Just pre ordered a new Halo 5 Guardians bundle to be picked up this week. And to be honest I love Xbox live leeps and bounds ahead of PSN. And XBox is 4K compatible. Ask Netflix…lol. I think there’s more surprises still to come with the Xbox and what it can do. Microsoft has always been this way with systems. They don’t give out all the surprises at once. Only thing that pooched Microsoft in the beginning was there PR at the launch show. But they’ve recovered and are steam rolling ahead. So don’t be a hater, be a player! This whole bashing each system is nuts, it proves nothing. At the end of the day your still gonna buy what you want :). Peace!

    • efnet

      Prepare for xbotmk1 to lecture you on why you shouldn’t like the xbox lol he’s an
      idiot

      • Joel Lambert

        Lol some people have way to much time on there hands! But Xbox drops the living $hit outta PS4. PSN game play online makes you wanna go to sleep. Xbox Live has the players to enjoy real games like Forza 6!! Haha Sony needs 12 years to make there Grand Turismo haha.

  • Joel Lambert

    What’s the sense of having a forum here if alls yous do is tare down people’s comments? Man 2 minutes and yous take down my posts. I assume yous also must be PS4 fanboys. Sorry if I touched a nerve lol

  • Darth Vader™

    Damn, look at all these fanboys. I’m guessing RO is back upvoting people with mult. accounts.

  • Baaaaaah

    Behind ?
    I just received forza 6 perfection at a locked 60fps.
    Pos4 got driveclub at 25 fps with a tenth of Forzas content and it sucks.
    I have Halo 5 4 player coop campaign and multiplayer perfection again locked at 60fps arriving in one week.
    And again nothing from pos4 that can compete.
    I say the sheep are taking it up the behind from Sony.

  • come on, do we care about a developing company work for EA, that’s not respawn entertainment.

  • Generalkidd

    Yes, it’s true the Xbox One is physically not as powerful as the PS4. However, DICE games have always been poorly optimized on both consoles anyways. Neither console can hit 1080p. Therefore, I think the problem is with DICE. Plenty of other devs have beautiful looking games running at 1080p on BOTH consoles. DICE’s frostbite engine probably wasn’t properly optimized or built for the current generation of consoles.

  • Anthony Barnett

    Xbox ? is the best box… Real talk

  • Lawrence Choquette

    I have always defended Microsoft, although I am starting to find it very hard to do. It is over 2 years in and the system is just falling so far behind. I am a member of the nxoe and let me tell you it shows just how weak the system is. Constant crashes, multitasking is almost impossible, the RAM just gets annhiliated when trying to perform such tasks. Apparently they are already working on new console, suppose to be released next December at the 4 year mark. Apparently they were very clear stating that the console is only going to have a five year life? I dont remember hearing that, not too happy as I have quite a bit invested in the system. As of late because fo the issues with the xbox one, I have started playing my ps4, mainly MGSV, the differences are just god damn over whelming, I could not even beleive it. It makes me feel embarassed that all my previous posts I was defending MS so much, claiming there is not much of a difference, well boy was I wrong, it is almost like playing on another system, the graphics are just so so so much better, it is going to be hard to go back to my xbox, and that is a shame, as I stated I am a xbox fan at heart, but this gen of consoles is starting to give me a entirely different look.

    • Darth Vader™

      A huge difference?
      You must have been playing on PC.

      • Lawrence Choquette

        No I am talking about my PS4vsXB1, in paticular Metal Gear Solid V the Phantom Pain. As I stated above, and if you read all my past posts going back years on IGN, this site, other sites under my gamertag hammerhawker you will see I always have defended MS tooth and nail, so I am definatley not a Sony Pony. With the recent beta for the nxoe, lots of expected broken stuff, so I had recently started using my PS4. The difference in graphics in MGS is astounding, I honestly could not beleive it myself. I use to just go on youtube or what have you to judge, but it does not show the true difference. I mean it is night and god damn day man,the details, in his cape when it rains, grass, trees, d dog, hair,I mean it is just too much too ignore. There comes a point when us ms fans have to stand up and say enough is enough, we invested a good size of money in our consoles, and it is just too inferior to the PS, something we have to start addressing, going on blogs, complaining about so maybe ,just maybe something will be done. Now stawars is only going to be 720p on our Xboxes, come on, its twoyears after the release, and things are getting worse with the more powerful games, it is a joke already. It is time to quit defending them or things just will not get better people.

        • Darth Vader™

          EA doing 720p on Xbox is just flat out laziness. PS4 is going to be 900p there anyway. Plus Battlefront is missing lots of things at launch.

    • Lord Winklestein

      I know exactly how you feel man. I have always loved the Xbox and if someone chooses to buy an Xbox I’ll respect their desiring but if your a hardcore gamer who wants to play the big AAA titles it is just better on the PS4. I think halo is great but are microsofts one or two top exclusives better than songs plethora of exclusives in addition to the fact that they have way more 3rd party indie developers making cool games too. I love Xbox but Xbox one is better for entertainment and light gaming and the ps4 is better for the diehard gamer who simply just wants to play games and enjoy them at a high level

      • Lawrence Choquette

        That is exactley how I feel, and MS knows you buy a system for gaming, not entertainment, not in this day and age. It is time we start complaining about it. It is 2 years in and the games are getting worse. Battlefront is only 720p, and now there is rumors going around that Bethesda is having problems with Fallout4, again only going to be 720p and 30fps. I mean come on, something has to be done, people spent a good chunk of money on their systems. I try and support ms as much as possible but it is getting very hard to do so.

        • Lord winklestein

          I agree if we ever want a change we need to get out here and make our voices heard because Xbox certainly doesn’t seem to give a damn about its early adopters and Long time consumers who have supported it through thick and thin like you and I have. And the Star Wars battlefront beta was the nail in the coffin for me after than I knew that PS4 was just the only way and if Fallout is only going to be 720p the. I might as well sell my xbone at this point and throw in the chips. I love halo a lot but I can live without it so I can focus all my attention on the console that actually thinks with its consumers in mind

          • efnet

            You two should just trade in your Xbox and be done with it ….I mean that’s what I would do if I was unhappy

          • Lord Winklestein

            Oh don’t worry I’m going to but as bizarre and as pitiful as this may seem it’s hard for me to let go of my xbone. I know it sucks and I know PS4 is for the best but it’s like giving up my child after 12 years when I get rid of my Xbox one. I know some may not understand but it’s just a fact for me

          • efnet

            Well then there you have it …. Trade it in on some new games and be done with it …

          • Lawrence Choquette

            Yep that is exactley how I feel. I have a ps4, which is technically my sons. I love MS, I like the achievments over the trophys, and Ihave always supported MS, right from the original console. But this is getting out of hand,the difference at this stage in the game is just too much, and the more we lie on our backs and take it, nothing will be done. It is time to do something about it.

        • JCheezy

          Haha you guys sound rediculous. Are you 3 sitting around with each other’s dicks in your mouths and Sonys CEO taking pictures for your demestic partner dating website? You boys are pathetic.

          • Lawrence Choquette

            Hardly Pathetic, pathetic is akin to one that is weak. Weakness is just sitting down and letting someone ram you up the ass. Letting MS get away with this, while we all pretend to be happy so we dont look like we wasted our hard earned money is not right…..The system should clearly be able to do more, now they are adding smoke n mirrors with this backwards compatibility which is a joke, 90 percent of us still have our old systems, it is really a useless feature. As I said you can youtube the diffrence, but it just does not show. I am a member of the new exp program and I was getting tired of all the bugs (which can be expected, it is a beta), so low and behold I played my ps4, which I actually bought for my son. The game I played was MGSV, the difference it is night and day…. We have to stand up and let ourselves be heard so MS does something about this. But not just one of us, all of us have to take to the forums, blogs, write MS and let ourselves be heard, otherwise nothing will be done about it. It is not like they do not have the technology to do so, it comes down to only profit which is not right, money can be lost on the system, it is in licensing and royalites down the line that money shoudl be re couped.

          • JCheezy

            Thanks for proving my point…..again

          • Mike Lebowski

            Just so you know, it is the developers you need to be frustrated at. The power is certainly there, it is up to the devs to use it. This has been true since PSX was battling N64. Konami has ALWAYS been in Sony’s pocket, so there should be no surprise in that game. DICE just sucks so that’s not really anything to get upset at MS for. Anyways, write about that, focus on developers and make them do something different. I like what MS has been doing and am excited about what they’re bringing

    • Bradsyerbud

      Totally agree, I’m at the end of my patience with MS. Always loved my Xbox by this is starting to feel like a bad joke. I’m even thinking of getting a ps4 or a cheap gaming rig. Phil spencer is doing a good job of undoing matricks mess but it starting to feel like he’s polishing a turd now. If Nintendo have the good grace to release new hardware I can’t see why MS can’t?

  • YOUR NAME

    right because the first xbox and gamecube outsold the ps2 by miles didn’t they lol.

  • baaaaaaaah

    Behind in what ?? The best exclusives, features, online service and future including full windows 10 unification, Dx12, and cloud processing. Think not, Xbox one leads. Console sales ??? Couldn’t care less, I can’t play console sales.

  • Mike Lebowski

    “There is still a difference on occasion, but it seems rarer these days than when the consoles first launched. However, the stigma has already formed that the Xbox One is the less capable system, which is still ultimately true from everything said by developers. But does it really change the landscape all that much?”

    The answer does not lie under the hood. It’s as simple as no, the landscape has nothing to do with the generic, useless description of power. Time and again, developer effort is the single most contributing factor. Both systems are capable of high end gaming, one not better than another as far as anyone could possibly be concerned. Considering that a great majority of people don’t exactly perform PROPER research before making purchases, I’ll rest peacefully in the sanctity of knowing that I made the right decision for me and will entirely ignore the current sales figures and any opinion achieved using such base, shallow reasoning. Xbox fans could enjoy PS4 if not for the outdated controller design, and PS fans could enjoy Xbox if not for the neurotically self-imposed narrow mind set that it is impossible to enjoy. Mind you, only those who fit the aforementioned description are being referred to….

    • Lawrence Choquette

      That is exactley how tyrancy and dictatorship starts. By people not standing up. In no way did I say it was impossible to enjoy. Lets face it, the system is far from cheap. Given the lack of difference of hardware between the console and a pc, it should be much, much more capable. By the time you buy a extra controller, batteries, a few games, you could have made or purchased a pc with far superior capabliities. Gamers claim that graphics are low on their list, but statistics show much different. This is 2015, it should be much more capable then it is. With only one major competitor in the console market it would not take much for ms to notice and maybe do something about it. As I stated you can go on any website IGN, Gamespot, Gamfaqs and check my previous posts under hammerhawker or the name I use on this site, I always promoted MS, going as far as to offering people invites to the preview program to help make the gaming community better, which is why I am doing this. People can blame it on the developers all they like, that could not be further from the truth, no one is lazy in a industry that billions are set to be made, and new talent and labour is a phone call away. They are very hard working individuals who always strive for the best product possible.

      • efnet

        Trade it in and be done with it
        There’s no point in complaining about stuff that maybe only you deem bothersum …
        Just move on.

      • Lord winklestein

        Everyone can say we’re Sony dick suckers but fuck them. I am supporting the PS4 and I am a life long Xbox Microsoft gamer. I’ve bought all the games and all the products and up until two years ago I was happy with my investment until the Xbox one game along. We live in 2015. We have things called 4K and virtual reality in the mix. If we can develop such advances technology then why can’t a simply gaming console put out a constant 30 FPS and 1080p. I get consoles aren’t computers but this is inexcusable. There is no reason in this day in age to be playing at 720p, and o don’t even demand 60 FPS, I’m ok with 30 unlike most people but the Xbox doesn’t even hold 30 on some games and when it shoots for 60 all it does is cause a headache because it’s so unstable. Regardless of what anyone says this comes down to the simple fact the the Xbox one has far weaker hardware. It’s just a simple fact coming from a Microsoft former fanboy, it just isn’t as powerful. Granted EA is a bunch of lazy asshole but it doesn’t change the weakeness of the Xbox one. That’s why I’m going PS4 and while it pains me to do that I admit I like it better. At the end of the day we are all gamers and should just respect each other and share our love of gaming together rather than degrade each other and act like a bunch of mindless fuck shits that don’t have any ability to process reality. If you like Xbox people, that great but I am tired of being treated like a statistic by Microsoft and want to actually live and game in 2015 and the only way to change this is to do what some say I’m doing an give in and roll over and die and just go PS4 but if we truly want change we need to let Microsoft know how we feel and slam them until the make changes and start treating their lifelong customers the way they should. I agree with all your points Lawrence, and I hope you find a great expirience gaming regardless of what you decide bro

        • Mike Lebowski

          I’m still wondering what exactly MS has done or not done to make you feel that way. There’s a lot in your posts but you’re citing information about games 6 months prior to release. Saying generically that MS has abandoned early adopters does not enumerate the problem. If graphics is your thing read my original post, it’s developers that you are mad at

      • Mike Lebowski

        So, unless this is just displaying out of order I was responding to the article, not your post, though I did just make a comment on that. If you’re referring to the narrow minded bit then I’ll refer you to the last sentence, the one after that

  • SgtPepper1806

    Xbox One is weaker than PlayStation 4. In other news, the sky is blue, Africa is a continent and the year is 2015.

    Seriously, how is this still newsworthy?

  • Richard Arnold Blashak

    microsoft lost since their xbox reveal at E3. as long as they keep churning out quality games and giving sweet deals/games with gold then the consumer is the winner and that’s how it should be.

  • wastheman

    x1 is behind the ps4 because of the console not really because of how powerful it is, no matter what Microsoft does the Ps4 will always be better on all levels

  • The Watcher

    Alan. Kertz also said DX 12 can’t help the Xbone in ever way.

    • Darth Vader™

      So if DX12 won’t help the Xbox in any way, why the hell are they implementing it in the first place?

      • The Watcher

        Damage Control Publicity Gimmick Stunt Whatchamacallit

        • Darth Vader™

          There goes your credibility.

          • The Watcher

            Whatever, Microsoft’s Xbox anti-consumer practices is beyond repair since the Xbone’s reveal.
            No amount of damage control can regain consumers’ trust on the Xbox brand.

          • Johnny

            LOL troll much?

          • Darth Vader™

            So we go from DX12 to the launch?

          • The Watcher

            Do you xboxers seriously think you can just make a person born as a midget to become the giant you want him to be by telling his brain think that he is a giant?

            That is what this DICE developer is saying yet you guys think the xbone can be something else by mere software updates.

          • Darth Vader™

            Who said DX12 was going to be some giant?
            DX12 isn’t going to be anything mind blowing. It does help the Xbox though. Why would they implement it if it does nothing?
            Think for once.

          • Mike Lebowski

            Seriously dude, how long are you going to live in the past? And such limiting thoughts as, “no amount of damage control….” only serve to restrict. MS has been nearly flawless in their improvements to their strategy. If you’re basing all your decisions on a bunch of things you didn’t like because you didn’t understand and never got implemented it’s no wonder you haven’t made any interesting arguments

  • Dylan Harris

    The PlayStation 2 was weaker then the Xbox, yet the ps2 sold a shit ton. It’s not a computer, the specs don’t mean as much. It’s the games on the system, and I’m surprised by such a dumb comment from a developer.

  • Darth Vader™

    Is it me, or are the PS fanboys acting more childish and ignorant than the Xbox fanboys?

    • efnet

      This is true ….

    • Guest

      Nah I would say both are equally bad. But maybe if we look well post by post I think Xbox fanboys in the comment section are worst.

      • Darth Vader™

        Equally bad, yes. However I see more PS fanboys replying with bullcrap.

        • Guest

          Not really. I’ve gone quickly through the messages and if we see here, there is a clear difference:
          Dylan Harris, Evil_Annie_2015, efnet, Tech junkie, Ian Brooks, trystanidog, D.Sharp Bumpas, JCheezy, baaaaaah, chillgreg , Fweds , Dairick Horton, Joel Lambert and Dashle
          With comments like “Baaaaah sheepboy, pos4 blows”, “Fuck all yall gay ass ps4”, “broke ass ps4 fans”, “Sad pos4”, “sitting around with each other’s dicks in your mouths” or “your mom still swallows”.

          vs

          mainly XbotMK1, with Mirimon, Mordarkeen, Grahf, wastheman, Dzian Kolack, Mr Xrat and Godzilla.
          Worst comment being something like “You are an abject fuckwit”, “Xbox sucks”, “You are a fuking moron”, “you’re a raging Microsoft fanboy” or “delusional fuck”

          • Darth Vader™

            You’re forgetting Spirit, No Really, FozyMandias, WRB, among others…
            I wouldn’t really see how Tech Junkie, Fweds, and Evil Annie are fanboys. Not to mention the PS fanboys seem to comment more and with more ignorance.

          • Guest

            I thought we were talking of childish comment here. Spirit and FozyMandias maybe, but what childish insults the others you mentioned actually said? Also who are the “among others”?

            ofc when one sets of fan personally insults people and their mothers that for me makes a whole difference in the maturity level.
            Sure,
            Evil_Annie_2015 : Bloodborne was trash.
            Tech junkie : You’re just a poor kid, failed at life,
            Tech junkie : You’re such a moron.
            Fweds : I suggest you get an education

            Not really. That’s all a matter of your personal perception as a Xbox/MS “supporter”.

            That’s allowed! Only thing besides the controller I don’t like about PS4 is Sony.

  • ste

    Behind the ps4 ha wont give it long till things start going wrong got a old ps3 here over heating to hell and the fan dont ask its like you live next to a airport wonder y i ditched it for xbox 360 then made the jump to xbox one its so Quiet its un real and i can easily go and buy more space ha what about you guys on ps4 to much messing about taking the console apart enjoy it while it last powerful you say i dont believe that one bit only thing hes best at doing is playing with his toys. Get back to your day job. Just wait till windows 10 comes out and then we will talk about powerful i rather have backwards compatible then paying twice for games

    • Guest

      Well, I’d rather play more new exclusive games than a small selection of last gen games that I can play on old consoles. But to each their own, I guess.

      • ste

        I dont really play old gen games. Upgraded for a reason if i wanted to play old games i would of stuck with xbox 360 nope its just a option only a matter of time before ps4 users runs out of space at least i dont have to open up the console when upgrading storage theses consoles eats storage just not into exclusive games i had to may problems with sony products glad i got rid of the ps3 and changed to xbox 360 i dont need a console as a airport if i did i would of upgraded to ps4

        • Guest

          “only a matter of time before ps4 users runs out of space”

          Well, I’m a PS4 user and I mostly buy physical copies of games. Also when I no longer play a game I delete it, I could instal it again if needed. Not a big deal.
          Like I said I buy a console mainly for its exclusives and one console has way more than the other. But hey if you buy console for hard disk space then like I said. To each his own. :)

      • ste

        I could not do that so many games i go though on a monthly basis with free games with gold i need the space

        • Guest

          What can’t you do? You can’t delete games on XB1? You get what, 2 XB1 games per month with GWG, they are repeated a times and most are relatively small ?
          How many games do you play at a time? Is it so much of a bother?

          Oh well, it doesn’t matter. Your priority seems to be HD space, mine is exclusive games. Different priorities, I guess…

          • ste

            I can do anything i need to on xbox one if i needed play a old game i can with out needing a second console may not be so great atm but its only just rolling out to preview programme n yes i can delete games i had to uninstall some because i ran dout of space i reinstalled them now after getting a external hard drive and yes we all no free games of gold are sh*t at times but you cant exspect good games everytime. Can you lol come on were talking about Microsoft here. I prefer everything to work together mobile, pc, xbox even tho i got a android phone i also got a Windows phone i dont play that many games anything upto 4 games but lately just been sticking with one as i with preview programme so xbox is buggy at times no not really i can live without space but were talking about game wanting anything up to 40Gb i dont like the idea of running out of space i like downloading alot of moves music and apps and games they all eat space i wait till games go down in price with games costing around £50 each if i go mad buying them i may aswel just buy a ps4 aswell i look for deals and more for my money the xbox fit that perfectly you. You dont want to buy something what is burning a hole in your pocket i believe ps4 does that but your right we all want different things.

            I’ve read your comment but still can’t understand what’s the problem. Even if you play upto 4 games at a time and we consider 40Gb per game, that’s still only 160Gb out of the 500 available. The last time I checked you can read and store videos and music on external drives with the ps4.

            We all no that its not all simple as that we got games we got the system aswell that needs space to put its storage preview programme updates and i had 2 updates in a space for 3 days dont ask were the space goes i dont no but all i no with games and updates and apps aswell that put my storage to about 250gb thats without music and movies it was less then that with music and moves i stuck them on 32gb usb and theres mb of space on that and the xbox took loads of gb so we all no u dont get 500gb out the box the system needs some if i dont have this external hard drive then i could run out of space in no time

    It isnt as powerful…its more powerful. Dx12 and cloud processing coming very soon. Sad pos4 cant run crackdown oh well they can wait and wait and wait for uncharted at 25 fps. Xbox one exclusives are releasing at 1080p 60fps…Forza 6 and Halo 5. Where are the pos4 current Gen exclusives at 60fps. Pos4 blows.

      And I suppose you taking your time to provide the exact same type of ad homonym attack in response is not? Only difference is target and subject matter.

    Fact: Xbox brand will always be inferior to the premium PlayStation brand.

    dice should worry more about finishing their games before release, than going out in the media and slagging of the xbone… dice you are still bug fixing your bf4 game, it was released in 2013!…

    Power doesn’t make up a console, its the gameplay and story that influence face time for game time.

    eg/ Many ps1 games are better than many ps2 games the difference in power is colossal. same with many classic games.

    I could start with games like Xenogears, Valkyrie profile, Star Ocean 2 on ps1 all better than Xenosaga, Valkyrie profile 2, Star ocean 3,4 on those next gen consoles at the time. These games are still better than most games created in their genre. Artwork, style, storyline, music they are all better in older weaker consoles!

    “Consoles, and Games are supposed to be ART” Remember what it is to make them.

    Have wisdom and Intelligence in the games industry! NOT mindless power hardware with crap games.

    powerful and powerful… i find it strange that the ps3 release of cod4:mw released in 2008 was way better in graphics and it even could have single player and mp into one… but blackops3 released in 2015 cant have single player, and the graphics is worse. so by dice tinkering the ps3 was more powerful in 2008 than in 2015… LOL!…

    also another thing why do dice need a more powerful console?… the more powerful the console gets the worse their games get. more bug patching more unfinished their games are and we get less content in their games.. i think dice should just stick to the 3ds, they cant cope and handle anything powerful…

    the thing is dice is full of crap and done as a gaming developer and company, they are puppets for investors and publishers. they have no respect for the art form they are making anymore… they have no respect for anything its all about greed and how much money they can get in shortest time… and as gamers we dont need that.

  • Still uses my XB1 as my main console (even for third party games). The controller is just too good to me and at this point, I really don’t care about 720p/900p resolution.(My TV is a 32inch 720P anyways…) Glad to have the PS4 for the great exclusives tho…

    Battlefield & Star Wars will always be behind Call of Duty because they are half as interesting….

    Jesus christ!!! Ill admit i prefer ps4 ove xbone but goddamn this thread is full of goddamn retarded motherfuckers.

    Xbox One and PS4 Will Always be Behind the PC…Because they aren’t as Powerful :P

    • X1 is not powerful – PS4 is more powerful – see Batman – even i7+nVidia 1080 was too slow – but on the PS4 it works OK and smooth.

    I’m a Sony fan and probably always will be. But it’s stupid how the fandoms seem to have reversed. Last gen, the biggest jerks and immature morons were by far 360 fanboys, this time, sad to say, PS4 fanboys seem to take the cake.
