Just Cause dev: PS4 more powerful than Xbox One right now

Avalanche Studios says PlayStation 4 is preferred console at the moment, though Microsoft expected to catch up with driver updates.

In terms of raw power, the PlayStation 4 currently beats the Xbox One. That's according to Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios' chief technical officer, Linus Blomberg, who explained to Edge that he's not ready to declare Sony's console the better performer just yet.

"It's difficult to say, as it's still early days when it comes to drivers," Blomberg said. "With each new driver release, performance increases dramatically in some areas. The PlayStation 4 environment is definitely more mature currently, so Microsoft has some catching up to do. But I'm not too concerned about that as they traditionally have been very good in that area.

"The specs on paper would favor the PS4 over the Xbox One in terms of raw power, but there are many other factors involved so we’ll just have to wait and see a bit longer before making that judgment," he added.

Avalanche Studios is currently working on projects for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The studio has three in-development and unannounced games, including Project Mamba to be published by Square Enix and a title basic on a comic book franchise, though it's not Superman.

The first of these projects could be announced next month during the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo, Avalanche Studios has teased. Whatever the games turn out to be, they will have players saying "Holy fu**ing sh**," according to chief creative officer Christofer Sundberg.
