    Okay, so a long-time friend recently created a comparison sheet comparing the PS4 and XBOX ONE.
    In my opinion, it's a bit more in-depth than bloggers and the like, and isn't totally against the PS4.

    I don't mean to start a flame war, and I will say that this isn't my opinion or anything. Just sharing the comparision my friend has put forth. Take it lightly please.

    Thanks.

    This 'fact' sheet, which just contains a load of personal opinions is basically just the work of a Xbox fanboy trying to justify his purchase. How he can claim that the Xbone has comparable specs to the PS4 is beyond me. It has been proven time and again that the PS4 is the more powerful machine.

    Now I'm not one of those people who will tell you to never buy an Xbone because it's inferior specs wise. If you like the machine/games then that's cool, buy it and enjoy it, but to try and claim that you can't tell the difference between the systems, you are just kidding yourself.

    I hope you didn't write that, because a good portion is nonsense. Particularly the part about upscaling, since you don't seem to understand the meaning of native resolution.

    Anyway, there is no "better". It all comes down to preference. Now allow me to present this:

    I'm actually the person who wrote the 'fact' sheet, which it wasn't actually supposed to be. It was a way for me to compare the two consoles to a group of my friends, rather than arguing with strangers on the internet. I intended it to be filled with opinions, hence why I underlined and bolted the 'I' in the title. I simply wanted to explain why I prefer the Xbox one. I agree that the PS4 has superior specs, I was merely saying that it's difficult to tell the difference between actual gameplay. Sorry if it appeared as though I was saying they had similar specs.

    Also sorry about that up scaling bit :). I actually have no idea how it works I tried to do a little bit of research and go off that.

    Hey, guys, be fair. The Xbox One is a lot better at some things.

    Like being a paperweight.

    I have read over your opinion, and agree 100%. Your facts are clearly researched, cleverly stated, and are easy enough that even Nin10yearolds could understand!

    10/10.

    The problem with PS4/XO gamers is that they focus too much on the hardware's strength and not so much on the games. Games are the reason to buy a console, not to be bragging which one's more powerful.

    I did see that the list contains games of PS4/XO but that wasn't the important part, which should have been.

    Saying that the Xbox One is better than the PS4 is a morbid opinion. It's not even possible to justify the Xbox One when comparing the two in a sentence and let alone a thread.

    You do realize where this thread is, right? EOF should come to mind.

    I know lol also It wasn't originally in the EOF thread, I was supposed to express what I said before yesterday, but I didn't so I decided to do my late response today.

    I'm not entirely sure if I'm willing to attribute the CPU "win" to the XBox One considering the fact that the CPU cores themselves are identical and the XBox One's were merely overclocked last minute, partially because the Kinect's background processes made the two machines unevenly matched, partially for bragging rights.

    Besides, the CPU doesn't really do much in contemporary games - what matters is the GPU, and that was downsized in the XBox One for the sake of adding on-die eDRAM memory so that they can cut costs and make the system use DDR3 memory as shared memory (even though its use by the GPU is completely ill-conceived).

    All in all, the systems are very similar built-wise, but the XBox One is a bit more complex while the PS4 is straight-forward and definitely offers more firepower. They're more or less evenly matched and once developers figure out how the whole eDRAM blast processing data funneling works, they will offer very similar results.

    Can't we all just agree that the PC is better than both on a technical level. You're just fighting for second place :tpi:
