    Xboxone uses DDR3 not GDDR3

    • EamonX

      Yeh I noticed that mistake.

    • MadAssGamers

      Fixed. Thanks for picking that up :)

  • where is versus xiii?

    you made a typo in console specifications in one of the categories.

    heads up!

  • Jason

    Haven’t included xbox music/video but included music/video unlimited which is sony based.

  • RAY J

    You forgot to put the PlayStation Move under Motion Control for the PS4.

  • Flip

    Cool.. But didnt they say Ps4 was getting exclusive content for destiny last sony event? Or maybe I thought I heard them say that

  • Greg

    Can you precise that backward compatibility on ps4 will be ensured through Gaikai service (we know details about it, but at least, it will exist)

  • 4t

    beyond two soul and diablo3 are not exclusif to ps4 beyond it’s for ps3

    • themuIe

      Diablo 3 will also be on next-gen consoles though

  • Dwayne Elswayne

    You made a good Mistake there Beyond two souls is for the ps3 not for the ps4 .
    Also Diablo 3 was never mention has a ps4 exclusif . and the ram for X1 it’s DDR3 . Ps4 will receive exclusif content for destiny and the 1hour gameplay for AC 4 it’s for watchdogs

    • Gamer4life

      Diablo 3 is a being ported to Ps3 and Ps4. It is not being ported to the Xbox.

      • Kreator

        It is moron

  • http://www.facebook.com/ana.helusic Ana Helušić

    PS4 is killing

    • reality slap

      Wow can you ride sony little jap dick any harder to stupid bitch.

      • Killa Tactics

        why do you need to attack like that because he likes ps4 more?

        • Sony is trash

          It’s indeed a he. He’s using a fake account to spam countless sites as a $0ny spambot female.

      • http://www.facebook.com/ana.helusic Ana Helušić

        You can ride your mom’s dick idiot, lamebox fails hahaha

  • PantherDST

    I’d like to see you add the Steam Box to the comparison list.

  • Blork


  • Vansh


    • Killa Tactics

      that depends entirely on wich exclusives you like offcourse but indeed im hoping to see some nice NEW exclusives rise on E3 ‘fingers crossed’

    • Blork

      Better for impatient people?

      If you’d rather that MS spend money on timed exclusives instead of actual games, then I guess that’s good.

  • http://twitter.com/Xander756 Alex Hinkley

    Add Ryse to the Xbox One exclusives list.

    • HeyZeus

      Also Halo – 5/2 Anniversary.. whatever. You know its coming.

    • MadAssGamers

      Added :)

  • Paradox

    Uhhh it’s common knowledge that the PS4 DOES support PS3 games via digital download; only the physical discs are not backwards compatible. Please fix!!

    • http://www.facebook.com/cole.tamblyn Cole Tamblyn

      That’s actually wrong. It doesn’t support either.

      • Gamer4life

        Actually your wrong they have said ps3 games will be available on the Ps4 but will need to be purchased from the ps store.

        • http://www.facebook.com/cole.tamblyn Cole Tamblyn

          Actually they said, “sometime in the future, using Gaikai, it may be possible to stream PS3 games.” The reason it will not be possible to play PS3 games on the PS4 is because the system architecture is completely different. The PS4 will be x86 where as the PS3 is Cell based. They don’t work together. it would be like trying to play a PS3 game in a computer. It just wouldn’t work.

  • themanlyman23

    PlayStation Network (different from PlayStation Plus)
    PS4: Yes
    XBOX ONE: No

  • http://www.facebook.com/mahmoud.madhloom Mahmoud Madhloom

    microsoft mentioned it would be released “around the world” its not the same as worldwide

  • John

    Great stuff – can’t wait for PS4

  • dex

    sony <3 xbox SHIT ! :))

    • meetoo

      faggot patrol.


    diablo 3 Exclusive on PS4

  • thor

    think Im going ps4 this generation, after two generations with Xbox. I might need to pick up One if Rare has a new Perfect Dark or Conker in store… but if they follow up with the boring kinect games Im out.

  • Sony is trash

    Specs appear to be incomplete though. In the post show Major Nelson hardware panel the discussion revealed that because of the specialized data movers in the CPU the RAM in the Xbox One can move data around at over 200GB/s by multiplexing memory channels. It’s specialized server hardware that is finally coming to consumer hardware and can do much more with less as it appears. The CPU is also no standard AMD jaguar, but a Microsoft in-house developed CPU that AMD PRODUCES! The specs listed here are incomplete and the PS4 can only move data at 176GB/s with RAM that requires a lot more power, costs more and produces much more heat!

    • Kreator

      This is truebut, this is also a Phony fangirl site!

  • Errors

    Beyond: Two Souls is for PS3, not PS4. You listed live streaming twice. PS4 isn’t backwards compatible but that should be fixed once they implement Gaikai’s game streaming. Final Fantasy isn’t exclusive to PS and should be replaced with Deep Down. Playstation Eye in the box is likely but unconfirmed. “Disc’s” doesn’t need an apostrophe,

    • Errors

      Also, The Witness is a PS4 exclusive as well

  • Someonewho knows how to google

    specs :ps4 gpu output ->1.84Teraflops , xbox one gpu output ->1.2 Teraflops .Considering the speed of the gddr5 ram on the ps4 plus the fact that xbox one will have 3 gbs of its ram reserved for its 3 oses (ps4 will have 1) and the slight higher clock speed on the ps4 cpu (2.0ghz-not 1.6), gives the ps4 an advantage of something between 35% to 50% raw power. source : freaking search the web if you care i aint spoon feeding ya.

  • Spayman

    Kingdom Heart III, Final Fantasy and Elder Scrolls will not be exclusives to ps4 but will be multiplatform games, please consider correcting
    and thanks for the very helpful article

  • Levian

    Good list, but you got the exclusives wrong. The Dark Sorcerer isn’t a game, its just a video demonstration.

    Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts 3 are for XBone too, and Elder Scrolls Online only has a timed beta for PS4, then it comes to XBone too.

  • ghucg7

    its retarded they make you pay a fee with used games on xbox 1 your already paying for the game -_- microsoft do you want people to buy your product or do you wanna go bankrupt? … idiots

  • LeBron James6

    Im on steroids guys.
