Xbox product planning boss Albert Penello has argued that PS4 tech specs are “meaningless” and games on the Xbox One are going to be as good as, if not better, than the PS4.
“The problem is that Sony decided to go out and publish a bunch of numbers, which are in some ways meaningless,” he said when asked about the comparisons that are being made between the PS4 and Xbox One.
He further added,”As a matter of fact, they actually go out and they talk about how proud they are about their off-the-shelf parts. Our guys’ll say, we touched every single component in the box and everything there is tweaked for optimum performance.”
He refused to dwell on any further comparison regarding the tech features of both the next gen consoles. “The box is going to be awesome. The games are going to be awesome. I heard this exact same argument last generation and it’s a pointless argument, because people are debating things which they don’t know about,” he continued.
Penello is of the view that gamers will rather go for the games that are on offer than debate on the capabilities of the consoles that are shown on paper. According to him, the Xbox One has more advantages that are fostered by the power of the cloud.
“So the whole numbers game – yeah, I’ve been following it online and it’s like, we tried having that argument last time. Do I want to talk about HDMI 1.3 or 1.4, it’s like ‘argh!’ It doesn’t matter. Did you see Call of Duty, it looks f**king awesome! It’s going to be great, you know. So we’re just saying, it’s not worth the debate.”
