John Carmack doesn’t want to pick a winner in the next-gen race yet when it comes to pure specs. While he praised Sony’s hardware engineering before, he thinks that both PS4 and Xbox One are pretty equal.
He revealed this at the QuakeCon keynote, and decided to play neutral and didn’t go into depth to explain the benefits of the hardware.
However, he did say that he didn’t do enough benchmarking to be able to provide a precise answer, but just said that they are both very good consoles.
Carmack hasn’t been on top of his game lately but he speaks the truth when it comes to tech and isn’t afraid to say controversial things.
We will have the keynote up soon once it is available.
