With the launch of the next generation of console gaming just around the corner, the battles between the PS4 and Xbox One are flaring up again as Microsoft disputes the statement that the PlayStation 4 is 30% more powerful than the One.
“I’m not dismissing raw performance. I’m stating–as I have stated from the beginning–that the performance delta between the two platforms is not as great as the raw numbers lead the average consumer to believe,” wrote Penello in a NeoGAF post. “There are things about our system architecture not fully understood, and there are things about theirs as well, that bring the two systems into balance.”
The alleged performance boost can mostly be linked to the more advanced GPU and RAM found in Sony’s PS4, but Albert Penello says we’re missing the bigger picture, claiming the experience of Microsoft’s programmers will bring us to new heights in the gaming world.
Later, Microsoft’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb to Penello’s arguement via Reddit. ”We have some of [the] smartest programmers in the world working on Xbox One,” said Hryb. “I am very much looking forward to the next few months (and beyond) as the truth comes out.”
The Xbox One launches on November 22nd, whereas the PS4 will be coming to stores on November 15th.
