Former Sony Dev: PS5 and Xbox Series X Power Difference Is Quite Shocking, Several Developers Say

From Wccftech:

In comes a new tweet from a former PlayStation developer, who says to have heard from several developers that Microsoft’s console is the superior console and that the power difference between the Xbox Series X and PS5 is quite shocking. These developers have also said, however, that this doesn’t mean the PS5 won’t be getting great games.

“I’ve chatted to a few devs and they have confirmed the power difference is quite staggering”, ex-Sony developer Chris Grannell wrote. However they have said it doesn’t mean you can’t make good games on the PS5. These fanboys clearly don’t care about that and are massively rattled.”

In an earlier tweet, Grannell also commented on a recent ‘analysis’ from an outlet that claimed that the PS5 will actually end up with more raw computing power due to it removing the audio workload from the CPU and GPU. Instead of going by an analysis, Grannell replied that he has heard differently from the actual developers working on the console.

I can see this causing heads to explode, and another 500 "Why the PS5 is superior" threads.

Look, even if the PS5 is weaker, at least Sony fans know that great games will come with it. 9-10TF is still an awful lot to play with for a closed system like a console, and seeing what they can do on PS4 leaves me with no doubt that stellar games will come from it.

Now, all that remains to be seen is what Microsoft have been doing with their studios over the last few years. They bought a lot of them so lets hope it pays off for us Xbox fans.

as a sony fan it's obvious x series destroys ps5. Sad time to be a sony fan. I really don't game that much to buy 2 consoles. if i want to get the cream of the crop nextgen experience i have to get a X series.
Just get the Xbox at launch and a PS5 mid generation when it’s cheaper. By that time it will have built up a few exclusives too:messenger_ok:

An ex-guerrilla games developer or NX gamer. Hmmmm, who should we trust here. Ah, the random Youtuber thats right.
But PS5 is revolutionary! It'll have 1-3 sec faster loading time. 3D audio. It's super efficient. It was developed by aliens. XSX is an off the shelf, inefficient,hard to develop for machine that just brute forces everything. Its not like they aren't brute forcing the clocks n stuff to the point of need variable clocks. Oh wait!

All that power, and will there even be one next-gen game that couldn't exist on current gen hardware? I doubt it.

Sony fans should rest easy. All the new games will be there. PS5 will lack nothing except maybe a little extra detail or a few frames per second.
This.

I mean, look at FF7 remake on the base PS4.

sony presentation was embarrassing, X-series based of the presentation seems to have way more advanced features in the GPU, even the DF guy said the samething.
Yeap I did no comments before because I though it was not important when I was stalking him...

Not does he just bash PS5 but he hype, retweet, buy everything related to Xbox :messenger_tears_of_joy:

VRS and machine learning are going to kill PS5. Their SSD is already equaled out by having texture compression that is twice as good as Kraken on PS5 (25 % compression vs. 50 %).

All this back n forth about power is stupid. Xbox one X is more powerful than the Pro and how did that end up? As always show the games. You already know what Sony will bring, Microsoft has more pressure on them I feel

There will be great games on both systems. I guess the most obvious illustration is:

Look at any Sony 1st Party game on the "base" PS4 and look how amazing those games are...then how much better they are on the PS4 Pro. Now take those same devs and give them a System with 9.2+ TF and a CPU that is not a potato and you will be amazed. Again, both will have great games and Sony's 1st party devs are gong to make the PS5 sing regardless of the specs it has against the Xbox Series X.

Only a fanboy will say otherwise about the games. He was on the money about fanboys being "massively rattled". They made it a point to troll every single xbox thread and overhyped a 13 tf ps5.

Now they feel the need to justify it however they can "fastest ssd" "audio" whatever its called lol. They made fools of themselves.

I know we're supposed to be at war, but the word 'staggering' screams bias. We'll soon find out though.
Sony is getting my moneys first because I prefer their games, Xbox will come Summer next year if all goes well.

I mean, it’s not like we don’t have both console specs here. We know the difference, it’s 2TFLOPS at best. Anybody staggered? LOL. Eh, maybe they were talking about RT capabilities. To be honest we have to wait for the games, then we will see the difference. I predict, it will be minimal.

This is real, you just have to accept it and that's it. Users like Osiris have deceived us for months. It's sad but true.
The only question that remains is if they did it for personal gain or if they were paid to do it. I remember Osiris' posts regarding much better raytracing on PS5 all too well. And then suddenly it's 44 % better on Xbox.

This is about raytracing, about machine learning, about mesh shaders, about BCPack, about variable rate shading. Put together they can turn a 12 TF machine into a 55 TF machine. How? By using those 12 TF at 1080p and using machine learning upscaling to 4K (equivalent of 48 TF). By adding VRS on top for a 15 % boost in frame rate on average.

I’ve chatted to a few devs and they have confirmed the power difference is quite staggering. "is quite shocking"

Sure thing you did, not sure WHY they would talk to you in particular about NGEN systems, having signed an NDA and all that .... and not just with 1 dev. (which would have been more believable), but whith A FEW devs. around the world via ICQ! nonetheless. He also seems not to be working in the industry, can´t find anything.

These developers have also said, however, that this doesn’t mean the PS5 won’t be getting great games. However they have said it doesn’t mean you can’t make good games on the PS5.

Why repeat the sentence twice? Dementia? This was poorly written. Another ex Sony employee hurt by the meanie crunch monster. Also this :

I honestly don't know why he wasn't banned. Completely misled people here and was way off the mark.

😂😂😂🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️Once we see tht word "staggering" in reference to a minimal power difference we know what time it is. Like I posted in the other thread I wonder what he thought about ps4 versus Xbox one power difference🤔 maybe the difference was catatonic levels? Atomical levels?

What a moron lol

People looking at gt7 and the next HZD on the ps5.


“Do you know the Xbox series x is way more powerful than ps5”

People shrug their shoulders and carry on looking.

We are already at diminishing returns.It all about the games,as it should be.
Can't wait to see what Playground does on a 12tf box. The new Fable. Forza Horizon 5. HALO 6. RDR3. The Initiatives new game,formed by many ex naught dog/Santa Monica devs.

Great times for both platforms

I can't help but just not care about anything else in this thread except for the fact that people from digital foundry post on era. Makes me not want to click on another video of theirs ever again.

He's probably referring to not only the better gpu, but RT. Rogame says XSX will have 44% better RT capabilities due to more CU's. That could be staggering I suppose

They used to post on here as well, but were hounded out by the fanboys. Poor John was driven to near suicide off Sony fanboys for not bashing Gears 5 enough in his analasys.
