CPU Upgrade: http://www.geekwire.com/2013/xbox-update-console-full-production-improved-cpu-performance/
Now ive yet to hear the clock speed on the PS4 part but the X1 CPU clock speed went from 1.6 GHz to 1.75 GHz, how significant is this change?
The X1s GPUs clockspeed was buffed from 800MHz to 853MHz, again how big a deal is this change?
Sony are having money problems as it is but i believe the PS4 will help pull them out of the mud on this one.
The launch titles arent too strong on PS4 - i mean you do have games that look good coming out in a short window of time after PS4s launch and you have Killzone which is the Playstations flagship shooter, however we have yet to see a naughty dog game or a god of war game although both were confirmed to be developing but Sony are giving them time because Sony know that Naughty dog is one of their strongest devs and as for the devs of god of war they must feel the same.
In all honesty not many X1 exclusives interest me with Titanfall and Killer instinct as the exception and the PS4 games that do interest me are Infamous second son, Killzone shadow fall, deep down and the future naughty dog game yet to be announced.
As for Indies, this is tough since X1 has project spark - THIS IS A SELLING POINT, its a dev kit of sorts that allows you to make, design and self publish a game, im not sure the extent it covers but its a strong point for X1, The reason this is tough considering the strenght of X1s project spark is because Sony has most of the indie devs under their belt, indie devs who could become Sony first party devs or even AAA devs eventually - this is why i love sonys stance on indies, they see the potential and whats to gain from giving exposure to them, Microsoft were late to the party on this one.
The magic of the cloud AKA MS's Azure: I dont know what to believe here, i cant tell if MS are overhyping it or its legitimately capable of the feats they speak of, ive heard Sony can do the same thing with PS4 but obviously to a lesser extent.If anyone could enlighten me that would be great.
Im so far Pro-PS4 and im starting to see what the x1 offers but ive still got that bitter taste in my mouth of what the machine was originally conceived as.
So obviously this isnt EVERYTHING about both consoles but i might as well give some details.
