    @vizzini I actually remember an article (long gone but not forgotten) that stated the WII U had less power but was more economical in the power it did have which would make up for it.

    Obviously this may have been all in my head but seeing as all the info from your posts are made up it isn't too big a deal.

    And!!! in the end it doesn't really matter, in two months the wii u's power will be so far behind Sony and MS it is pointless discussing it

    Having said that, the wii u has proved it can have nice things

    I didn't say it anything to the contrary, I was just pointing out that the WiiU is “closer” to the X1 performance than X1 is to PS4.

    /thread implodes

    Although I was working with the pre X1 overclock numbers, so it looks like the numbers fall marginally the other way and make me wrong ;)

    All too often I'm having a little bit of fun with Deckard or nickthegun, etc and I get the blame of people assuming I said something I didn't.

    Have folk simply tried ignoring Vizzini's insane, and unbelievably tedious/boring, ramblings? Surely there's only so long someone can keep talking and arguing with themselves on a forum. :/
    Reading the drivel he writes used to be fairly amusing in a "Fuck I pity this guy" kind of way, but his sole purpose now seems to be just to wind other people up.

    Impossible to do so, what with all the quoting.

    Ok, change of topic to PC and I'll keep away from it. What did you make of the recommended BF4 settings article?

    How do you think the BF4 recommended specs will transpose to next gen consoles x1 and ps4?

    "One source even suggested that enforcing parity across consoles could become a political issue between platform holders, developers and publishers. They said that it could damage perceptions of a cross platform title, not to mention Xbox One, if the PS4 version shipped with an obviously superior resolution and framerate; better to “castrate” the PS4 version and release near-identical games to avoid ruffling any feathers."

    Oh dear...

    In regards to forced parity. Why should Sony be forced to under perform their games just because Microsoft were more interested in kinect and TV during development.

    Its not Sony's fault they made a games console to do that thing called gaming.  Perish the thought.

    Suggested and real world performance and different beasts. Surely ps3 owners would understand that from the ps3 launch. We will see how it turns out but the rumblings from developers paint a worrying picture for xbone

    @killersrquiet Sony wouldn't be forced to under perform their games but thrid party develepors could be in order to appease Microsoft. I don't think MS would be too happy with the same game performing much better on the PS4 than Xbox One but at the same time, forcing them to make both versions perform the same could, potentially, mean develepors make it PS4 exclusive.

    We'll just have to wait and see how it all actually pans out though!

    Sony own several developers and being the platform holder does mean they are forced to ensure parity. Nothing is released on a console before going throigh microsoft/Sony qa.

    The final say lies with the platform holder despite what developers do

    shock... ps4 has better performance

    You've posted an article essentially repeating the Edge story, which was posted just a few comments back. :-P

    Looking at the release schedules, it looks as though there's quite a few current-gen games I'm going to miss out on due to the next-gen consoles. I could get them but I won't ever play them.

    Batman: Arkham Origins and Beyond Two Souls for starters.

    And that's why I've cancelled my ps4 pre order.

    That and my catalogue of ps plus games needing to be played.

    Anyone getting the feeling that the 50% faster quotes are a little too good to be true? Is the Sony marketing engine in full-on bullshit mode?

    Remember the 'controlling missiles' and other 'facts' in the run-up to console launch for their previous consoles?

    PS1 did not in fact, toast my bagels!

    Sony never said it was 50% faster. Fanboys did.

    The 50% faster statement is from an unknown developer but for some reason it seems to be being taken as fact. It could certainly be something Sony have put out there. It's very reminiscent of the power of the Cell or the Emotion engine hype Sony have used in the past.

    Personally I won't be even looking to go next gen until at least 6 months after they launch so hopefully by then we will have a real idea of actual performance and which looks to be the console to get this gen.

    The 50% faster comes from a basic GPU comparison, simple as that.
    It doesn't matter shit, games will look great on both and if you're that obsessed get a PC FFS.

    Yes but there may be more to it than that. Special sauce etc. Maybe there won't be any more to it. I don't think we will know for certain how they stack up in the real world until people can get hands on with them both. I certainly don't see any hurry to declare a winner based on spec sheets when neither of them are even out yet.

    @Khanivor Really? Was Win95 - Xp ever more than one CD?
    Were the pirated versions just slimmer then? ;-)

    Oh man, what a dilemma! I'm leaning towards PS4 for next-gen but I'd prefer a bag of Doritos to a Taco Bell. Can I still participate?

    So online is compulsory for xbone, and food poisoning is compulsory for PS4.
