    They said this in an interview about the upcoming Need for Speed: Rivals.

    My theory is that they are talking about the PS4 being more powerful, the tone of his words can easily imply that. Even so, they sound as if they are surprised when pretty much everyone knew the PS4 was more powerful when it was announced back in February after the specs of both consoles were leaked and they announced the upgrade to 8GB GDDR5.

    I think, this is a sad state of affairs, that we need to see the games ourselves yet. I feel empty minded about what to think, perhaps what Major Nelson said could make sense and his words had more substance than we initially thought when he said that he couldn't wait for next gen games to launch and he was looking forward to the truth coming out.

    I always liked the capabilities of both consoles and after all this rollercoaster the last months, sometimes I just don't know what to think. I have a feeling that the Xbox One is a much more capable console than it was credited for.

    Especially with him highlighting particle effects and fluid simulation in his latest missive. Things that the extra compute power of the PS4 is going to chew through.

    I've yet to see a game on PC that looks as good as Ryse despite more CPU/GPU power. Sure you could crank up the resolution and texture detail etc on PC games but they just don't look as good. I say the X1 games speak for themselves.

    I say multiplatform games will speak for themselves. Comparing exclusives is an endless debate of preferences.

    particle effects will also get a huge boost by the esram in the one , see killer instinct as an example.

    Plot thickens !

    Killzone SF, Infamous and Resogun also show great particle effects.

    Well, I guess he means by "the truth", something like Xbox One not being 50% less powerful than PS4, instead it is more similar to PS4 than people think, but not the same power.

    How are exclusives about preferences when anyone with good eyesight can see how good something looks? Take away the word "exclusive" and it's just another game. Are you saying that games can't look better than other games and that they have to be nonexclusive identical games in order for someone to say one looks better/worse?:lol:

    Beat? PC graphics are good for tech demos and benchmarks but when it comes to best looking games, consoles exclusives still win.
