    In talking to a developer who wished to remain anonymous, gamers will see a difference on Day One when they compare third party PS4 games to Xbox One head-to-head. The developer told me the PS4 is 40 percent more powerful than Xbox One and games like Call of Duty Ghosts will be noticeably different out of the gate.

    In the past, Xbox 360 games looked better out of the gate and over time PS3 games progressively improved to the point where games like The Last of Us and Beyond: Two Souls stand out even against some next gen titles. But if this differentiator holds true, not only will Xbox One games have DRM issues and no rental options and limited used game opportunities, the games won’t look as good as PS4 titles. That sounds like a perfect storm of negativity for the hardcore gamers.

    This processing power issue also could be a potential reason behind the latest controversy that has emerged for Microsoft at E3, in which photos were taken of some Xbox One games running on Windows 7 PCs with NVIDIA graphics cards. Sony PS4 developers took to Twitter saying PS4 demos were running on PS4 dev kits. I know playing PS4 games behind closed doors that the PS4 was clearly visible as I played.

    Can't see where that says it can't be inferior. It reads to me like it must have the same content and features and must release at the same time. Doesn't say anything about graphics fidelity or performance, even between the lines that I can make out.

    Sony really are on the ball with the PS4. It's the most powerful console, its cheaper than the Xbone, they haven't fucked up their used gaem policy, remote play might not be complete shit. Shit looks good for them.

    Possibly but on matters of high res textures, people claiming 60fps is necessary and whatever else along those lines being selling points it could get interesting.

    If you wait until the system has been out for awhile, find and ask/bribe an XBox fanboy to add you as a "family member". Then you can mooch his old games.

    That's about it.

    It has Forza 5 <3, some other good looking exclusives, but that's pretty much it. Nothing good about the console.

    MS is paying BIG for exclusives. I despise MS's anti-competitive tactics, but this could be a differentiating factor that hurts the PS4.
    It's great that PS4 will use less invasive DRM (it's up to the publishers, so we'll see), and be more powerful, but if MS gets wider support from publishers, that will matter to consumers.

    Well if they're trying to get exclusives they're pulling a ps3 which had a lot and didn't really prove that they were better in third party games. And it's a lot more 3rd party support that really helps a console out, so many people might be all over the ps4 this gen.

    Why is this on the frontpage? Articles on Forbes can be submitted by anyone, there's no credibility there. You might as well be linking to some random Wordpress blog.

    You have to consider the fact that the XBox One's operating system will take up more resources than the PS4's. Moreover, although both use the Jaguar infrastructure for the CPU, the Radeons embedded will both be customized, so there may be some substantial differences there. Additionally there's the question of memory management - the PS4 has GDDR5 memory, the XBox One has DDR3 with the addition of some embedded memory of various types to "catch up". All these apparently "minor" differences could very well shift the balance of power in terms of raw performance.

    Let's wait until the systems actually release and we can compare games instead of drawing conclusions six months before launch. These differences may very well result in a noticeable difference in multiplats but it's too early to say.

    That only applies to like features in the game, content and such.


    See, whenever I hear Call of Duty Ghosts, I always think of:
