    MUST READ ARTICLE- Microsoft Exec talking smack

    ok I can't figure out how to friggin copy and paste on my phone using tapatalk so I'm just gonna type it because as fellow ps4 fans I feel it's an important article.

    FROM MY PS4 NEWS APP:

    Comparing the "meaningless" technical specifications of Xbox one and ps4 is a pointless endeavor argues Xbox product planning boss Albert Penello. on paper the raw tech specs of the Xbox one would appear to be at a slight disadvantage to ps4, but with no real gauge on exactly how it will effect real world performance, if at all, Penello says the whole discussion is utterly pointless.
    "the problem is that Sony decided to go out and publish a bunch of numbers, which are in some ways meaningless," he told OXM. "because this isn't like 1990, when it was 16 bit versus 32 bit."

    Penello went on to lash out at sony's use of off the shelf parts for ps4.

    "as a matter of fact, they actually go out and they talk about how proud they are about their off the shelf parts. Our guys'll say, we touched every single component in the box and everything there is tweaked for optimum performance," he boasted.

    For me, I'd rather not even have the conversation, because it's not going to matter, Penello went on, playing down any real world benefits to be had from tech spec differences.

    "the box is going to be awesome. The games are going to be awesome. I heard this exact same argument last generation and it's a pointless argument, because people are debating things which they don't know about. They're not head silicon engineer or corporate Vice President of IEB hardware and I'm not lead ps4 architect, so why are we having this discussion," argued Penello.

    I feel like our games and experiences are going to be every bit as good, if not better. technically on top of all the magic we're going to add with the instant switching and the power of the cloud.
    END ARTICLE.

    So what do u guys think about that $#@! from ms?

    well it seems to me like it is a bit. He knows that the ps4 is more favored by consumers right now even after ms reversed their policies. plus, I understand the concept of having to see how it works in the real world but I mean damn, cold hard stats and specs DO account for more than he's giving credit for IMO

    It's just PR. Their job is to convince you that their product is better, and that is all there is to see here.

    They can talk all the smack they want. The PS4 is going to be the greatest thing since sliced bread.

    dang straight man. and I know it's just pr, but the sad fact about this is if they have a pr office running this, then they must think some people are stupid enough to believe this. sad part is there probably is people that will believe that

    Pointless!?

    It's clear now that they realised that they $#@!ed up at E3 and other expo's and have decided to be a sore loser and say that all the specs and what not between the consoles NOW don't matter. I guess it also didn't matter when they were showing off their specs to the audience then. They're just embarrassed.

    don't really see how the pr can help them any bonehead can look and see the specs btw the two. I guess some people don't do the research before purchasing

    So this is just another way of saying: "We know we have weaker specs, so we're not going to talk about it".

    Combine that with the comment from the Xbox One hardware designer after their reveal: "We purposefully did not target the highest end specs"

    Yeah, it's best most of these specs don't get out since your console is $100 more than the more powerful PS4.

    i think this is funny, he must not have been around with the xbox 360 used off the shelf parts and this caused an initial 33% failure rate

    oh and the cloud...GOD BLESS THE CLOUD! i don't think the cloud is going to add that much, but what do I know?
