    Microsoft has more hardware though :) Typical Microsoft make inefficient code and toss hardware at it. Typical Playstation make the code efficient and go as cheap as you can on hardware. Anyhow everyone arguing over this generation of consoles really should just relax. These consoles are so overpowered they literally are mid tier gaming PC's. We have never had anything near this type of power in a console. It simply won't matter they will both have great FPS.

    Consoles win by their exclusive games, not their hardware.

    And it begins


    price and exclusive less so on the exclusives imo, then again histroical the winner is usual the one the comes out the gate strongest and get the developer behind it, which general lead console for development for the gen. The PS3 Outpower the Xbox360 but do to how insnanely hard it was to program for it it didnt really win and by time developer grasped how to use that power of ps3 it didnt matter. For me it simple I will never own MS console again I been with Sony since PS1 that isnt gona change. short of them doing what they said they never do again is which 600$ console I just want Sony to pull there head out there ass and stop using shitty psu that induce coilwhine and jet engine fans would also appricate they made the fan curve on system based on temp and not load that or developers need to learn to use Vsync/ FPS cap cause some game just turn jet engine sitting on just menus. I really want to take my ps4 appart and reaply the thermal paste it always been loud but now it louder., but I not will to risk put back together and find out something broke in process.

    Nintendo understand power dont mater it about there games, I will ague other thing about them why I have not touch there consoles in decade or more but I not gonn open the pandora box.

    Yes price will play a big part if there is a gap. Parents will often opt for the cheaper one obviously.
    I have nothing against Xbox but it's just not a single one of their first-party games interest me.

    Regardless of these and 10,000 more just like it and 1,000,000 more in direct contradiction to any of this: I will never ever ever ever ever ever ever buy a console from Microsoft.

    They are a software company.

    Sony are one of the largest electronics manufacturers in the world.

    My money is on Sony, purely and simply for this reason: A console is an electronics device.

    But anyway, I already called it months ago: Sony will win this round, as they have every single other round since 1995. For you betting types out there, that's 25 years of winning, quarter of a century yo'.

    Oh, I thought Microsoft's Xbox, since 2001, was an abacus.

    Now where is the updated title? I just read elsewhere that the Crytek developer who supposedly said this has either retracted his statement or actually never said it. The interviewer he supposedly told this to has now pulled all references to the interview.

    Well, It depends. When you have overblown need for shader performance, then console with higher raw power behaves better on their engine.
    When they have bad texture compression or overblown texture resolution, they'll benefit from faster storage.
    In case they made engine that constantly pulls data between CPU and GPU memory, then they can benefit from HSA.
    And so on. Each bottleneck is bottleneck only if engine demands that much.

    Take any parts of HW that are used and let's have normalized console A which has performance ratio of those components as 1:1:1:1:1:1: ...
    Take console B that has ratio in comparison to that A console as 1,5:0,8:1:2:0,5:1: ...
    Then Engine that uses more of 1st parameter (1,5) will claim that console B is better. But what about engine that uses a lot of 5th parameter (0,5)? That will claim that console A is better and B has bottleneck.
    If someone claims that having 35% slower storage that is still 5 times as fast as average PC storage means bottleneck, then they are not facing reality that their game will be used to build games on PC.

    One little sentence at the end doesn't make up for the headline grabbing title.

    Yeah, because having someone else make something for you makes you a manufacturer; so, I am the manufacturer of Levi 501s, by that logic? :)

    C'mon, don't split this into semantics, Microsoft is a software company that gets other people to make stuff for them, because...they are not an electronics company at their core.

    Bill Gates did not set out Microsoft to become the largest and greatest electronics company ever, he set out for it to the largest and greatest software company ever.

    That's why he called it Microsoft and not Microelectronics.

    It's in the name.

    Sounds like a bit of cogwash and rumours I’ve heard the PlayStation 5 over heats and the speeds Sony gave aren’t sustainable.

    all rumours won’t know till they’re released.

    I honestly don't care as long as they catch up to a PC's capabilities finally, which should give us all better looking and playing games.

    I have a feeling neither of these consoles will have a good exclusive for at least a year or more. I mean look at Cyberpunk2077, it's gonna be on six different consoles along with PC each with varying level of detail and performance. Console only players are basically paying for hardware upgrades at this point just like the PC, have we come full circle?
