Yes. Ripened tools help. Developer familiarity, too. Same thing occurred with PS3 and Cell last time around.

ESRAM is a handicap for now but a workaround will come.

Hardware power is always behind though. Never changing without a complete hardware update. 900-720p will be the norm. The games will be good though, and that's what matters. They'll just struggle more to work on the Xbox One.

I hug you friend Flash. It will get better, I promise.

Sounds like what I was expecting down the line in terms of differences between the two versions but I didn't think the eSRAM would be that much of a handicap. I knew it would be harder than PS4 but I didn't think it was actually going to be hard.

Handicapped how?

I would assume until devs had had time to really work their engines around the way ESRAM actually works, to fully utilize the bandwidth it offers, it would result in the Xbox One versions being on the short end. It's expected. Hopefully it doesn't take too long though for this hurdle to go away.

It's kind of like a poison candy with a sweet caramel centre, still gonna kill the fuck out of you but it will taste sweeter overtime.

Will they actually have a hardware redesign and fuck over all the early adopter?

This is what most rational people would think. Though the warriors will never let the hate go. No matter what side they are on.

Translation: Don't buy an Xbone until the Xbone S comes out in a year or two, with a hardware redesign.
A hardware redesign will be purely cosmetic. They will not change the core specs, it will be the same for rest of the gen. Whatever they can do they have to do it before the system launches.

I agree that there will be many good games on the console. I am already jealous as hell that I'm going to miss Dead Rising 3. Given more exclusive games, a price cut, and/or more disposable income, I am sure that at some point in the future, I will have a XB1 under my TV. Seriously hope that the people buying it enjoy it.

Makes those claiming the esram would be some kind of ace in the hole look even more silly.

Did the eSRAM get over clocked too ?. Was it only the compute units in the GPU.

They should just over volt the entire system !!!

Has anyone other than Proelite mentioned OS crashes and freezes? That sounds nasty but I haven't heard it gaining steam among the insiders like the usual big rumors do.
