The Xbox One Was Weaker, But Apparently It’s The Same As The PS4 Now
We’re literally weeks away from the next-gen explosion that we’ve been waiting years for now. The PS4 and Xbox One are set to release in under a month, at least overseas, and I for one cannot wait for the next generation of consoles to infect the gaming community and add even more fuel to the raging fanboy fires that populate the internet.
I mean, there are still arguments raging on about how one console is stronger than the other, with people pulling specifications that even they don’t understand and saying “Oh look, bigger number means more better visuals and shit so…PS4 FTW! Suck my Xbone!” And yes, I just made that up, but I’m pretty sure a quick search will return far worse comments.

Best of all is the fact that actual developers, who actually understand and work with these console, are saying that there is little difference between the two, In fact, Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami says that he’s irritated by the fact that he has to make two games for two consoles that are essentially the same at the core. Speaking to the Sixth Axis, Mikami had this to say about the PS4 and Xbox One.
“We only need one console. Why do I have to make two versions of a game? And when Xbox One was first announced, it had lower specs than PS4, but now they’re almost identical. So either will do.”
Mikami is currently working on horror title The Evil Within, which is set for a PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and next-gen release, so I’m pretty sure his opinion counts far more than the raging commenters that you find infecting sties like ours. Sure, that’s not to say the Xbox One has some shortcomings when put up to the PS4, and vice versa, but I really think everyone should stop embarrassing themselves by claiming that one console is more powerful than the other.
Like honestly, how are we still having these discussions? The PS3 was more powerful than the Xbox 360, and I don’t really see how that affected games that we’re multi-platform. Grow up people, seriously.
