    Leadbetter Perspective Shifts:
    ===============================

    Current-gen:
    -------------------

    Resolution:
    - Sony console version lower resolution than MS console
    RL: Big difference made by the resolution difference, defining factor in face-off.

    - MS console version resolution lower than Sony console
    RL: Should not make much difference, resolution is not the only important thing.


    FPS:
    - Sony console version FPS drops compared to MS console version
    RL: MS version "silky-smooth", provides much better experience, defining factor in face-off.

    - MS console version FPS drops compared to Sony console versopm
    RL: Should not make much difference, FPS is not the only important thing.

    Tearing:
    - Sony console version tears more compared to MS console version
    RL: Significant tearing, very distracting, reduces quality of the experience, defining factor in face-off.

    - MS console version tears more compared to Sony console version
    RL: Should not make much difference, Tearing (or lack of it) is not the overriding factor.

    PREDICTION FOR NEXT-GEN:
    ===============================

    Audio:
    - Last-gen Sony console supported more audio options, including DTS compared to last-gen MS console
    RL: a minor bullet-point in a table

    - Next-gen MS console sports dedicated audio chip compared to next-gen Sony console
    RL: entire paragraph devoted to audio in next-gen face-offs, probably one of the major deciding factors.

    I bet that all looked a lot better as you were dramatically typing it into Notepad, didn't it? Each keypress clanging down with the portend of the infinite wisdom it contained. Nice underlining work. Sterling stuff.

    Was genuinely expecting Vizzini to be all over this (it has Leadbetter in the thread title, after all).

    I would add to the predictions:

    GPGPU:
    - Technique used in next-gen Sony console.
    RL: Probably necessary as a way to combat this unbalanced hardware design limitations, such as its inferior audio support.

    - Technique used in next-gen MS console.
    RL: Another interesting and useful feature of the Xbox One console, along with the 32MB ESRAM.

    What a surprise! An army of Xbox fanboys unleashing a barrage of ad hominem arguments and trying to ridicule the obvious facts!

    It will certainly look funnier when you include actual quotes from RL himself in that list, man.the.king.

    I predict I still won't read them because they'll still be boring.

    I wonder how many people who read them actually understand them?

    There should be a standard test for people looking to comment on DF articles. That would eliminate the tards who just skip to the conclusion and get their rage on.

    For the emperor!

    I was hoping to hear that he had gone 4D somehow.

    I don't have an X360, but I know DF is biased because my PS3 fucking rules.

    Also, it has a much better controller.

    The latter being actual truth, actually.

    360 pad > Dual Shock 3.

    I find it surprising when I come across someone who disagrees with that tbh.

  • Deleted user 19 September 2013 02:38:19
    They are equal. Both nice designs, the 360 pad has slightly better sticks and significantly better triggers, but it also has the worst d-pad ever made, so fucking shit it can't reliably navigate a menu. Plus the PS3 controller is rechargeable.

    @Syrette

    I think I understand why you opine that (wrong) way.

    What I found interesting is that many here (in the UK?) think of the X360 as the standard controller and are shocked when using a Dualshock for the first time. In Germany, as in most countries probably, the Dualshock is the standard, and people are used to it. Here, it's the X360 controller people have to get used to.

    Matter of fact is, the X360 controller is great. It is natural. For people who are by nature not used to fine mechanics. People who are used to grab things firmly and without caution. Like babies, all natural. Or like dock workers.

    The Dualshock, on the other hand, is a tool for gentlemen. For the sophisticated. You don't grab it like a baby, you hold it gently and smoothly. It is a tool of fine movement and cultured care.

    Of course I don't want to be condescending, but democratically I understand that the X360 controller is more suitable to peasantry. I just want to point out that what is true for peasants may not be true for gentlemen. I mean, we all agree that there's not one standard that has to fit everyone, don't we? We're not living in socialism, after all.

    So when I say the DS is better than the X360, what I mean is not that it is objectively better, just that from a certain point of view it is superior. From another viewpoint with clumsy fingers, it may well be inferior.

    That doesn't involve any judgement, just that gentlemen and peasants may have different preferences.

    The 360 pad is miles better though.
