Forza 5 and Ryse is better than any game on competing platform – Microsoft

Microsoft doesn’t think there are visually impressive games on the PS4 that smokes games on the Xbox One like Forza 5 and Ryse.

Albert Penello, Microsoft’s director of product planning, who earlier revealed that the Xbox One has a balanced architecture and less bottlenecks, has revealed in the same interview with Rev3games that some Xbox One games are spectacular when it comes to graphics.

“I was famously chastised for saying in an interview once that comparing hardware specs was meaningless. And my point with that is, the people who are speculating on this are not our hardware engineers, and we’re not Sony’s hardware engineers. They’re doing things in their hardware to make it the best that they can. We’re doing things in our hardware to make it the best that we can,” he said.

“I don’t believe that the difference between these two platforms is [as] significant as comparing individual components. I’m a big car fan, how is it that a 300 or 400 horsepower Porsche can be faster than a 700 horsepower Corvette? It’s balance. there’s different things that you put in the system to make the performance the same, but you make different trade offs. When it comes to RAM, they made one decision on RAM, we made another.

“When I look at these games, I don’t see a difference. And I know there are a lot of people that want to compare those things on paper, and look at these individual components, but for me it comes down to the games, it comes down to the experiences. And I look at games like Ryse, I look at Forza, I don’t see anything better on a competing platform that I’m seeing there.”

    Looking at the launch games on both consoles, I’m more interested in Forza 5, Ryse and Dead Rising 3 on the Xbox One. Ironically, I’ll be getting a PS4 first due to cost ( I won’t be bothering with a camera). Xbox One versus PS4 will probably be the biggest sales war in gaming history, but even though Microsoft have cocked up, I wouldn’t write off the Xbox One.
