The PS exclusives always have better graphics than Xbox exclusives.
Um, I don't even...how do you compare two things that don't even correlate? So God of War has better graphics than Forza 4? Oooookay.
Now your being silly
Okay, what I meant by 'speed' is that needing the speed of the fastest consumer-grade memory on the market which is only used in video cards in a console as system RAM
is irrelevant, as evidenced by the current PC DDR3 standards. Just about any flavor and speed of DDR3 is going to provide nearly the same real-world results in most games; the performance differential only looks greater on paper because of the metrics used to grade them, but you won't be able to tell the difference physically. PC games are fast as ****; they don't need GDDR5 as system RAM. DDR3 has been just fine for a few years now.
If I had one, every day!
Uh huh. On what road would you do this, legally? Practicality and plausibility are working factors here. I bet only Sony's in-house developers are going to be able to push the system to its full capabilities at first (if at all) with their exclusive franchise IP's because they designed the damn thing. The PS2 and PS3 were tough for third party devs to develop for because of the bizarro system architecture; it took several years for them to get the most out of it. Now that the One and PS4 will have nearly identical setups, there isn't going to be much incentive to put extra time, money and effort into making one cross-platform title look better than the other.
If the cant even interpret their OWN system properly, what does that say?
It says the media misinterpreted it. At this point it's still somewhat undefined, but we'll know a lot more at E3 and it doesn't REQUIRE a connection 24/7. But it's a frickin' media box, why wouldn't it be 'on' (re: or 'on' as in a standby state) 24/7? Everyone's routers and cable modems are on 24/7, just as vulnerable as the devices connected to them. Cell phones are on 24/7. A lot of people leave their laptops and desktops on 24/7 to no ill effect, so I'm not quite sure what the blow up is over this.
Comment From Joe
Hi Larry. There seems to be some confusion in the media on how frequently users must connect to the internet to use the Xbox One. Will this be as frequent as once a day as rumored or will we be able to use the console for extended periods of time without an active connection? Thank you.
Major Nelson (Larry Hryb): Answer: No. It does not have to be always connected but it does require an internet connection.
By 'require' he means, you know, have the ability to connect since it's a damn media box (for features, TV, social media, updates, apps, patches, etc.) Buying a One and not taking it online is like buying a Rubicon and never even leaving the garage.
Sony has already confirmed popular PLAYSTATION 1-3 titles will be available on the Store.
That's great, but it's not really backwards compatibility if they only choose to port over popular games that they know will sell. BC should encompass an entire library, not just prestigious select titles. And it's kind of cheating to re-release something digitally, that's not backwards compatibility because you're re-buying the game and it's not the original code. True BC is being able to use the original media; that's the whole point.
