Xbox One favored over PS4 with more future proof claims

Have you made the crucial decision yet on which next-gen console to buy between the Xbox One or Sony PS4? If you haven’t yet, you’ll be interested to hear about some new thoughts from Microsoft, who boldly claim that their console will start ahead of the PS4 and will go on to remain ahead due to being ‘built for the future’.

It’s obviously not the first time that we have heard Microsoft wax lyrical about their new Xbox One console being ‘future proof’. You may remember a previous article that we wrote, in which Microsoft’s Albert Penello also stated the same thing, to which some consumers were obviously skeptical about.

Now, Microsoft’s director of marketing Craig Flannagan has said in a recent interview that the Xbox One will ‘start ahead of the PS4’. He believes that a better launch lineup is another factor for his reasoning, whilst also putting his head on the line to say that the Xbox One will offer ‘the best experience this Holiday’.

Obviously these kinds of comments are to be expected from a Microsoft director of marketing, but do they still raise a few eyebrows regardless of which platform allegiance you belong to?

Microsoft will need to be a bit careful that they can back up their comments if they are consistently going to market the Xbox One as a console that is ‘future proof’. We would all love to see it after the RROD situation, whilst talk on the Xbox One Cloud does seem very promising, at this early stage.

With just days to go until the launch of both consoles, let us know who you think has the edge. Has the recent drama over resolution changed your mind on the Xbox One or not?

PR man spouting PR crap. Xbone is Dead On Arrival and no amount of denial changes that.


yep future proofed at 720p and a better launch line up how is that future proofed Sony has some of the best studios working on exclusives 180 Games in development < that's future proofed and honestly if a game is good enough it will be available on pc


I think it’s clear that Xbox One (and Microsoft) is better positioned for future developments than PS4 is. Microsoft’s history of upgrading and adding features to the console easily eclipses Sony’s offerings. Plus, Microsoft’s massive cloud investment really is the dawn of a new era. Developers can freely utilize cloud compute processing for whatever they want, and that kind of an advantage cannot be overlooked. You’ll notice (on day one) that Forza 5 has AI which blows all else out of the water – because every virtual driver is modeled off a real person’s driving behaviors, and it learns/grows/changes over… Read more »
