What we have never seen however is the more powerfull sku priced at $100 LESS than their competition. So we are now possibly in the position of seeing the more powerfull console being the lead sku, and in a position where the devs will actually take advantage of the power difference, leading to a larger difference in multiplat versions than we saw last gen.
So it processes information faster? Or it ... updates frames faster?
What exactly do you think it does, faster?
No, I'm really not. It's a very vague statement. This is not a case of 'the RAM performs 50%' faster, or even 'the processor performs 50% faster', just 'this system, in it's entirety, performs 50% faster than this other system'. So, you tell me what that means. PM me, if you'd like.

But we're talking about next gen games.
Does Gies still owe someone on GAF $10?
Yes, this War Thunder dev.
I think you are reaching here. Read through it, didn't seem like they were angry. Some even admit that 30% was the last figure they heard.
Sony fanboy posting a link to a tweet from a guy who once worked on the worst Gears game ever. Just look at his comment history.
Which ones? The ones that worked with him on the trash Judgement game before he got canned?
So...is this thread proof that even GAF fully participates in the console wars it ridicules Gamefaqs and Gamespot for?
Eh - Box has Ryse and Forza 5. Both look pretty damn good. Ryse rivals anything on the PC.The PS4 isn't exactly impressive tech, so the Xbone really has to be a piece of crap. And only to shove in that Kinect.
Huehuehuehuehue guys.. If its really XBone, PS3, XB360<PS4 it shouldn't have been that hard to produce something graphically better than Knack. Or are we looking at a situation of diminishing returns over 1Tflop.
Says it all, no?
● War Thunder Dev: PS4 GPU 40% more Powerful
● Adrian C., Former People Can Fly Creative Director: PS4 has 50% speed superiority over XBO
● Forbes: Developer says PS4 is 40% more powerful than Xbox One and Call of Duty Ghosts will be noticeably different out of the gate.
● Avalance Games: "The Specs would seem to favor PS4 on paper."
I know I've seen a bunch more. We should get a list together. I've yet to see a single dev come close to saying anything other than PS4 is more powerful, and usually it's by a significant degree. The closest I saw was the Titanfall dev saying it wouldn't work on PS4 because of Cloud or some shit lol

unleash the personal attacks!
Former Creative Director claims his Dev Friends say there is a 50% power difference.
I don't care if he is the lead engineer for the Xbox One. He's an idiot and is pulling this 50% number out of his ass. Especially based on the fact that he calls it a "50% speed difference". This is probably why he's no longer with PCF after the awful Gears game they made and why he's know stuck making a vaporware indie title.
This tweet was made for the kids at NeoGAF.
The situation is nothing like it was when the Xbox entered the market. The PS2 had a crazy amount of hype around it, while the Xbox was an unknown. The two systems had price parity, and the PS2's library was massive compared to the Xbox. When the system that is 20% cheaper is also 50% more powerful, you better believe that power difference will have an impact. There is already a huge divide in pre-order numbers all over the world (4:1 at my local Walmart), and most people have no idea there is a power gap. Once the system launches and word gets out that there is such a huge gap, the sales divide will grow even more. The majority of people getting consoles at launch or within at least the first couple of months care at least somewhat about the power of the console, or they wouldn't care about getting it to begin with.It doesn't really matter if the xbox is less powerful. We've had systems with different power levels in the past. PS2 was still selling like crazy when the original Xbox came out.
Fair enough, but I can't criticize these anonymous sources.
Did they all just say "Yeah it's probably, uh, 50% faster. Yeah, 50%". What a perfect number. How convenient. And, again, what a great attribute. 50% faster. What is it faster at doing? I dunno, it's just faster.
I have no idea what it's supposed to mean. 50% faster ... ok, fine. What next? Is the PS4 23% better? 19.5% more fun?
