Sporting an 8-core x86-64 AMD Jaguar processor, 8GB of GDDR5 RAM and an enhanced PC-style GPU, the Sony PS 4 means more of a PC’s performance than any of its predecessors. The new announced Xbox One also comes with an 8-core AMD processor, 8GB of RAM and 800MHz D3D11.x GPU, kind of similar in power to the PS 4. In the graphics department, however, Microsoft may surprise us.
The Xbox One controller or PS4 DualShock controller? For most game player, this seems to be a useless question owing to the locked-in preference of gamers. But I still would like to talk something about it. PS4 DualShock controller mix and match components with the PS Vita’s controls while Xbox One gets 40 design innovations including the tweaked D-Pad on the bottom-left of the game pad.
Older Games Compatibility
The PS 4 has a completely compatibility of the older model games, and it allows gamers to live stream older games to their machines and play remotely hosted older games on your new device with fees.
But Xbox One doesn’t follow the PS 4 in this term and it hasn’t the Xbox 360 games support. It tends to let developers to release the new game discs and Microsoft promised to add 8 new games professionally for Xbox One. To get better experience of Xbox One or to leave old games discs is just a question for us.
The Facebook-similar interface of PS 4 offers the serious "real names" friend-making gaming network to communicate. And players can share their video chips and chat with other games on the network. Even, one can invite an online friend to ‘watch’ or even ‘play’ your game in real time.
It seems that the Xbox One cannot compete with PS 4 in the social sharing when it focuses in Home entertainment. But we can also expect is that Microsoft can really find something new or cool to in the social sharing domain.
Xbox One Kinect vs PS4 Eye
The PS4 DualShock 4 controller will come into play with the PS4 Eye benefitting from its multi-colored light bar. The PS 4 Eye will contain two 1280×800px cameras, according to Sony’s statement.
Along with the announcement of Xbox One, the packed-in 1080p Kinect 2.0 was unveiled by Microsoft. It is said to be the advanced camera as "human control for a human experience,", which means to be able to process 2GB of data per second, analyzing more joints.
It seems the Kinect can be more attractive, but Sony may put something mystery about the Eye when PS 4 is really released.
Of course, PS 4 owns the high specs while Xbox One has expected features, so which one is better? You may have your own opinions, just leave your comment here.
