Xbox One vs. PS4 by MS Director of PP

If you have been keeping an eye on the rather intense Xbox One vs PS4 hardware debate lately, you really should study some recent comments that have been made by Microsoft’s director of product planning Albert Penello. He has jumped into an ongoing debate on which console has the superior hardware specs, by coming up with evidence which suggests that the Xbox One can easily hold its own against the PS4, which many gamers believe has the current edge.

Mr Penello believes that negative and ‘misinformed’ information has been spreading about the Xbox One capabilities compared to the PS4, and has taken to social media via a thread on Neogaf to attempt to fight Microsoft’s corner against an army of insightful gamers.

He has moved to clarify a few specifics about the Xbox One system specs, notably by claiming that the Xbox One features 50% more performance than the PS4 in relation to 18 CU’s vs. 12 CU’s on the PS3 – according to Penello.

He continues by saying that the Xbox One has “10% more CPU” than the PS4 and that the Xbox One has a faster processor and a better audio chip and more memory bandwidth.

While we wouldn’t be one to debate Penello’s claims, it appears that many of the gamers over at Neogaf couldn’t wait to comment on his statement, with some actually accusing Microsoft’s director of product planning of handing out false information on the Xbox One.

It is fascinating stuff to read, so if you are in the know about the technical aspects of console and PC hardware, you are not going to want to miss this. Take a look at the whole thing here and let us know if you agree or disagree with his comments.
