An Xbox One developer has revealed during an AMA on Reddit that while he can’t comment on the rumours floating around, PS4 does have better specs on paper and by how much is still debatable.
However, the games he saw at E3 like Ryse, Forza Motorsport 5 and Killer Instinct were spectacular and look as good as the games on a high-end PC.
“The facts are on paper, the PS4 has better specs and the most you can debate is by how much,” he wrote. “What I can tell you is I have played Forza, Killer instinct, and Ryse on the Xbox One. They look as good as the games I play on a high end PC. Ryse reminded me of darksiders II.”
Microsoft did show a lot of games at E3 and definitely managed to impress a lot of people. Titanfall turned out to be the best of the bunch as evident by the amount of awards it won for being the best of the show.
He had also earlier revealed that the amount of features that use Kinect is too many to count and removing the device would undermine Microsoft’s guarantee to game developers.
“The goal with having a Kinect ship with every Xbox is to guarantee to game developers if they implement Kinect features into their games, everyone who has an Xbox will be able to experience it,” he added.
“I often see people dismiss the Kinect instantly because they haven’t seen it work like I have. It is an integral part of the Xbox One experience.”
Both the consoles will be released later this year.
