My Thoughts on the Ps4 and Xbox One

I'm sorry but this was pretty funny

Sadly for Xbox fans the numbers are not stacking up in Microsoft's favor. Sony saw a rise in their stock prices by 9.3 percent after Xbox's reveal. And Microsoft's stock prices went down. I don't take sides and say this console is better then the other because everyone has their own opinion. But at the starting line of the console wars I would say that sony is actually ahead of Microsoft.

Here are the specs for the consoles:

 Xbox OnePlayStation 4
CPU8-Core x86 AMD CPU (Xbox One is a 64-bit system)8-Core x86-64 AMD Jaguar 
GPUCustom AMD GPUAMD Radeon-based GPU
Memory8GB DDR3 (5 GB available to games)8GB GDDR5
Hard Drive500GBBuilt-in HDD, capacity TBA
Optical DriveBlu-ray (speed unknown)/DVDBlu-ray (6xCAV)/DVD
USB Ports3x USB 3.0 (2 on back, 1 on side)USB 3.0 (quantity unknown)
Video OutHDMI (4K video playback, but not gameplay), HDMI inputHDMI (4K video playback, but not gameplay), Analog-AV Out
AudioHDMI, S/PDIF opticalHDMI, S/PDIF optical
Communication10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet, 3x 802.11n radios w/Wi-Fi Direct for communication with controller and other devices10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 (EDR)
Additional OutputsIR (to control cable/satellite receiver)Aux (unknown)

Many gamers were turned away from the xbox one's reveal because of the lack of games. Microsoft had some good ideas when it comes to making the xbox the center of the living room, but lacked in games. And that's what people want!!! This is just the start and we will see more at e3. Sony is also revealing more about ps4 on June 10.  (where we might get to see how the ps4 looks)

I say good luck to both consoles and I can't wait to hear more!

If you what to learn more about the Xbox One game informer did a excellent job of getting all the info.


  1. They are just about the same in processor and speed of the OS system what is going to make it or break it is what in house games MS and Sony are going to make for the system.

  2. Why? I'm just getting into this generation of great and cheap games? Why could they just use that cash to make great new games that push the game system to there limits?

  3. Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon on
    a daily basis. It will always be interesting to read content from other authors and use a little something from their sites.
