    Fat lady sings on RAM upgrade rumor

    Xbox One 12 GB RAM upgrade rumour is false, says Microsoft

    "Feeling great about game performance - stuff is looking killer."

    Xbox One


    Not so long ago, 'twas rumoured that Xbox One would be the recipient of a RAM upgrade before launch, to counter the loathsome might of the StayPlation 3.5 - from 8GB to 12GB, to be precise. Turns out this is all cobblers - you'll have your 8GB of RAM, and like it.
    The news comes care of Albert Penello, the product planning manager who hinted that some sort of performance uptick was in the works last month.
    "I would like to pose this question to the audience," he wrote. "There are several months until the consoles launch, and [as] any student of the industry will remember, specs change," he wrote on NeoGAF.
    "Given the rumored specs for both systems, can anyone conceive of a circumstance or decision one platform holder could make, where despite the theoretical performance benchmarks of the components, the box that appears "weaker" could actually be more powerful? "I believe the debate on this could give some light to why we don't want to engage in a specification debate until both boxes are final and shipping."
    Earlier this month, it was revealed that Xbox One's graphics processing unit has been bumped up from 800Mhz to 853Mhz.
    "This is the time where we've gone from the theory of how the hardware works - what do we think the yield is going to look like, what is the thermal envelope, how do things come together - to really having them in our hands. That's the time where you start tweaking the knobs," Microsoft's Marc Whitten explained in a podcast.
    Alas, that seems to be your lot. Here's Penello on that 12GB rumour.

    Not needed anyway. Xbox-one is plenty powerful already. The early games are already showing it.

    No surprise there. I think most people knew that wasn't going to happen.

    Isn't MS desperately trying to hide X1 official spec? (which is already leaked)

    Last thing pops to my head is "X1 must be so powerful. Thats why MS must be trying so hard to hide it"

    Leaks specs prob right and MS wants to hide its weakness. or not publicize as much

    I don't think they could have done it without raising the price even if by a little, still would get plenty of buyers pissed.

    It sounded very silly from the start, also X1 doesn't need that.

    12GB of RAM would be too expensive it seems for them. Why art Microsoft so cheap?

    I saw this as a stretch when it was first rumored. Seems like it would have been much more work than just deciding to up the ram on a whim without suffering delays, not to mention slightly raising the cost of development.

    I think it is worse that he called it loathsome.

    Didnt even notice that, though its really sad a gaming website used something that trolls and fanboys are using everywhere to down talk the PS4 in an article. Especially XBOX OFFICIAL MAGAZINE, are they trying to look unprofessional?

    Yeah I don't care what exclusive product you cover there is no instance where any media outlet should allow such journalism to be posted. I understand free speech is a right but this makes them look pretty bad. Very immature stance to have as a professional media source. I know this doesn't reflect all their journalists views but they should have seriously thought better before releasing this article in its current state.

    Me thinks they are trying their best to give PS4 a "Xbone" equivalent naming. Unfortunately for them, StayPlation made no sense at all.

    That's what I've never understood why people think XBone is a derogatory term for One. I've always used it as a combination for both Xbox and One. I guess some might have some ill intent with it but I always assumed it was simply an abbreviation. Guess I could be wrong in the matter

    I agree - I've never thought of XBone as derogatory - as quite frankly I don't see it. meaning into it. It's also just a really easy way of writing it along with XB1.Those who use it as such, and also those who think it as such, are taking too much

    It's just Xbox One = XBone.

    Storm in a teacup I reckon.

    Meh. It's no different than this site's constant use of "Xbone." I don't see the big deal.

    That makes zero sense, "Xbone" is a commonly used short form for Xbox One - even fans of the console use it. Its a stupid name and X1 or XB1 (which I use) are better but you cant help stupid names. Now, PlayStation 3.5 or StayPlation 3.5 is down talking the system and is what trolls and fanboys use in articles, not a short form since that would be PS4

    Xbone is a $#@! reference and pejorative slang term used by Playstation fanboys.

    Search Xbone on Wikipedia and it'll redirect you to Xbox One.

    So some random troll posts a definition on urban dictionary makes it fact? Of course some will use it as trolling. It really is a pitiful troll but honestly it is widely accepted by both sides as an abbreviation.

    its because they don't have anything on the ps4 so they have to resort to childish name calling. it's one thing from fans, but it's another from a professional magazine.

    anywho, who in the hell needs 12GB of RAM? what game would use that all???
