    Um, have you guys ever been to the internet before? Your very first post about specs is so ludicrous I had to check my calender to make sure it wasn't April 1st. RAM: Not all memory is created equal. Both systems have 8GB of RAM, but PS4 uses GDDR5 and XONE uses GDDR3 (reportedly), which is the same ultra-high bandwidth memory used on the current flagship PC video cards. OS: Devs praised the PS4 OS and its tiny footprint, as well as Sony's tools that allow developers to alter resource use at the deepest operating levels, meaning the standard footprint can be made even less conspicuous by developers. And as one commenter has already posted, the XONE walls off an entire 3 GB of RAM for OS or Kinect or whatever the hell else it's doing in the background all the time. In fact this whole article seems to be some kind of weird NO, THE NEW XBOX IS TOTALLY SWEET reaction to what was basically an EA Sports presentation where MS revealed its new hardware.

    The errors have been fixed, thanks for pointing them out! That being said, keep in mind that GDDR5 isn't just "faster" DDR3 - the two types of memory fulfill different functions. Otherwise, most gaming PCs would be running GDDR5 as system memory instead of dedicated graphics memory. The PS4's "unified" architecture is largely what will determine how effective the GDDR5 is at performing basic RAM tasks.

    Important point. GDDR3 is lower latency (faster), but GDDR5 allows for much higher bandwidth. Anyway, thanks for addressing the issue. I echo Eightboll812 in apologizing if I sounded like a dickhole in my original post. I was just very surprised at what I'd read.

    I think I will just have to go PC completely. I hate the play station controller and well Xbox is just pretty much a disaster now. If anything I will wait for at least a year.

    How is something like the controller seriously that big of an issue? I can almost guarantee that there will be third party controllers that will be different shapes closer to what the 360 is, just like with the ps2 and the ps3, I am seriously curious because of how many people use this as their only argument.

    Both look awful but I'll give PS4 the edge only because Xbox went with that fee for pre-owned games... just about the worst idea out of both.

    Suffice to say Microsoft have had better presentations in the past. I don't think there are any new features that'd make it the better choice, between the requirement of being online within 24 hours and their reputation to charge for the air that goes through their cooling fans. It may be presumptuous to say so soon but my money's on Sony

    You know that rumor was dispelled right? They have said that most of the features can be used without being connected to the internet. There will be no "always on" internet on the XboxOne.

    PS4 is definitely looking way better than Xbox1... Not really excited for either but at least I don't have any gripes with the PS4 so far. If Sony announced that the PS4 was region free however, then I think I would be excited.

    The next gen is going to be lame

    On the very first point its already been said that only 5 of the 8 gigs of ram for Xbone is dedicated to games while all 8 of the ps4's is for games and it has seperate memory and cpus for background and multitasking purposes..

    PS4 destroys the Xbox1 completely, seriously Mircosoft skipped shooting themselves in the foot and went to outright suicide, the only way they can recover from this is if they make the system cheaper then the wiiu.
  • ericmatrix1 - May 21, 2013 5:57 p.m.

    I do not agree. I think the Xbox reveal went quite well. I think in the graphics department, the PS4 will win but what Microsoft did exceedingly well was showcase the XboxOnes many multitasking features, content offerings, and exclusive partnerships. Where some feel they lack in graphics/gaming power, they more than make up for with content and functionality. I do not think the new Xbox will go down so easily. Mark my words, it will do much better than you think.

    No used games isn't going to help them, among other things.
