Poll: Xbox One - Underpowered and Overpriced (107 votes)

Yes, Xbox One is Underpowered and Overpriced 66%
No, the power and price are fine 34%

Xbox One is less powerful than PS4, yet its $100 more expensive.

It has Kinect, but their are almost no Kinect games at all. It seems like MS will quickly abandon Kinect development. And while it has some usefulness in the OS, its not worth the extra $100. I could see MS dropping Kinect by next years E3 and releasing a cheaper Xbox One, so basically anyone who buys one at Launch for $500 will be getting ripped off because the Kinect will be irrelevant in the next 6-8 months.

As far as power goes, we are ALREADY hearing rumors of games running in higher resolution on PS4. This will only get worse as the generation goes on. Everyone knows PS4 is more powerful.

Xbox One - Underpowered and Overpriced.

There is a reason Don Mattrick is no longer with the company, and its not because he was looking for a new challenge at Zynga. Unfortunately for Xbox fans, they will feel the effects of Mattricks screw ups for the entire generation.

Nothing can compete with the PS4 !

If you're a gamer, what is the point? So you can play the games MS should have splashed on earlier this year while the PS3 launched a hand full of AAA exclusives for the PS3?

Yeah, these alts need to start getting locked down.

I'd say it's overpriced but not underpowered, the hardware is practically identical to the PS4.

Which ones? The old-old rules, or the recent old rules....?

Meh, don't matter. The new rules suck irregardless.

#11 Edited by Mkavanaugh77 (20733 posts) -

so a lot of assumptions and rumors?

How about the games?

Dead Rising, Ryse, Forza 5, Killer Instinct, Titanfall Cows be jelly.

The price is fine and happy with what I be getting on nov 22. The power, sure I wish there would be little upgrate. But no matter what. Its not far from ps4.

I don't think we really know how powerful the Xbox One hardware is yet. We are still in the pre-launch, 1st generation titles era. Developers are still figuring out the nuances of each system and regardless of how simple a console can be to develop for, there are ALWAYS little tricks developers find to enhance their games.

If you are over 18 years old (or at least possess the requisite maturity I would hope an 18-year old would have), read the following:

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-the-complete-xbox-one-interview

I'm sure many people will blindly dismiss everything the interview details as "evil, M$ PR spin", but a lot of what they are saying makes sense in regards to not being able to accurately gauge the console's power simply from a basic spread sheet of the main components and their associated gigaflops, etc

It may be that the PS4 is indeed easier to develop for this generation, as the 360 was last generation, and this may be part of the root of these early claims from developers that the PS4 is more powerful in regards to actual game performance.

Only time will tell...

you just found out about this. With all the FUD microsoft was saying. I felt like a system warrior seeping through the white washing. The fact remains that the specs of ps4 vs xbone. Games would run 30 fps 1080p on ps4 and 22 fps on 1080p on xbox one. Instead of running at 40-45 fps on xbox one they lowered the resoloution of ghost to 720p. It is understandable tbh.

Underpowered and Overpriced, indeed

Op, go home, you're drunk

#17 Edited by profanityVP (386 posts) -

the real potential is in the cloud, and virtualisation.

that along with the physical power of the console will be more then enough,

#18 Edited by Douevenlift_bro (5035 posts) -

Right next to the Wii-U, X1 is one terrible console.

#19 Posted by lostrib (34704 posts) -

wow you were real creative coming up with your alt name

#20 Posted by blackace (20291 posts) -

The games will speak for themselves. It's definitely not underpowered, especially after M$ sent out the final devkits.

CoD - 720P

Ryse - 900P

TitanFall - 720P

Not underpowered? You're right, its just holding back its awesome cloud power.

It is pretty far, seeing as most multiplats run 720p while 1080p on the ps4

Only Ryse resolution is confirmed idiot. It will be upscaled to 1080p anyways. Cows are so desperate for the XB1 to fail. They are embarrassing to SW. Bunch of losers.

hahahahaa............. I can feel the tears on this post to...hahaha

I told you so i told every one,even some hidden lem-rmits you know some who claim to be hermit but they wear the lemming suit like super man inside,which fight me about it to.hahaha

The PS4 has 660Gflosp advantage on the xbox one,both are GCN,the PS4 has more mature tools and is say to be even easier than the xbox one to code for,every GCN test out there says it i have post benchmark after benchmark,i have stated what the xbox one had to do to keep up with the PS4 frame wise on games,and giving resolution up is one of the,still to come image quality,i think it will also get a hit on xbox one.

Generally speaking you only add the cost of the GPU, you know every pc gamer already have the other parts, or even console gamers have some parts that can be used, I am sure everyone have case, OS, m/k, hdd laying around.

#34 Posted by Zakeris (29 posts) -

I think some people forget that Sony ditched packaging their camera simply in order to beat Xbones price point. If I remember right, it's at the sacrifice of some DualShock funtionality ( http://kotaku.com/the-ps4s-camera-can-do-some-cool-tricks-461245527 ) So, you lose some functionality to save a bill, or you end up buying it, and equalling out the price. That is all.

Infinity Ward said CoD is 1080P/60FPS on both XB1 and PS4. Plus, TitanFall 720P is a rumor.

Microsoft managed to sell me on the PS4. Sony didn't even really need to do anything but be there as an alternative, but their system goes above and beyond my expectations for the next-gen. 8GB of unified video RAM is amazing.

The PS4 is the most powerful video game console ever created in the history of video games. Everything next to it will pale in comparison.
