The PS4 and Xbox One release dates are almost upon us, and as we count down the last month, the creator of Resident Evil has something to say about them. He says the two next gen consoles are almost identical.
Yes, it seems the developers aren’t seeing that big of a difference between the PS4 and the Xbox One, as previously reported by The Inquisitr. Technically, one developer and one creator, but still, these guys are on the production side of gaming.
If the people making the games don’t see a big difference between the PS4 and Xbox One, perhaps it’s all a matter of perspective which one is better? Even though the PlayStation 4 was said to be 50 percent faster than the Xbox One, we have yet to actually see and play proof of this.
Both consoles had better be at their best as well, considering the Steam Box is on its way, giving PC gamers a controller that’s technically better than those of the consoles in nearly every way.
As the PS4 and Xbox One release dates close in, gamers must make a decision. Will they stay with the consoles they have, and wait and see which one is actually better for them, or will they jump at the console they think will come out on top? A poll conducted not too long ago suggests that most gamers are doing the former, as a majority of them said they aren’t buying the PlayStation 4 or the Xbox One when they launch.
If you look past the hype, you’ll see that though the PlayStation 4 may be faster than the Xbox One in performance, the Xbox One has the more advanced Kinect and haptic feedback controllers, giving it a slight edge. Add the hype, however, and it looks like Microsoft is struggling to convince gamers that they actually have something good on the way.
If previous console wars have taught us anything, it’s that the games are what makes or breaks the console. If you don’t want the games, you won’t buy the console.
Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami doesn’t see much difference behind the scenes, saying that he doesn’t need both consoles to develop for both. He didn’t specify which console he would be developing on, though. John Carmack of Id Software said about the same thing.
Their opinions mirror the overview previously reported by The Inquisitr that both consoles even look identical, with the same slanted black box and two-tone finish. If you switched the logos and the peripherals, you might actually have to turn one on just to tell they’d been switched.
With the PS4 and Xbox One release dates coming up, do you agree that they’re practically identical? If not, which one is the best for you?
