So the why did sony Decide to put a weak ass graphics chip in this?

#1DARQ MXPosted 4/7/2013 2:04:49 PM(edited)
I heard some sites say that is is just an underpowered Xbox 1 graphics chip... but still slightly better than the emotion engine. Idk the graphics on xbox seem to still be slightly better at least when it comes to aa and af and bitmapping. I don't get why sony decided to put a sweet Cortex-A9 Quad CPU in but.... a lesser xbox graphics chip?

I mean I wasn't expecting a ps3 chip but come on. At least make something that destroys the 3ds in graphics. Not just a little bit better than it. I want it to DESTROY the 3ds in that area. The cpu is really good for a handheld but the fact that most mobile phones(Tegra2?) might have a better graphics chip is very sad so heat isn't a problem. It is sony being cheap, It is bad enough they gave us a spotty inky OLED screen infected with Mura. (btw any new vitas have less ink spots?

does it matter? why does it need to be so much better than 3DS?

and probably because people wouldn't want an hour of battery life?

It's actually not that bad. It should be relatively close to where ever the iPad 4 is placed on these graphs but little higher due to lower res.

Well the quad cpu itself would drain the battery enough. There is no way a graphics chip that is higher would do that. I am just saying. The fact that these graphics only are a tiny bit better than the psp (and barely) just bums me out. Peace walker looked really good on my psp and mgs3 looks more or less worse in in some areas lol, not overall effects or fmvs or course but like its just not sharp and colorful I think mainly cause it is a port.

lol is that all people say now a days because they are voicing an opinion of something they don't like on a forum? A troll would be something stupid and way less words. A troll would be like... yo why can't they put the newest PC graphics chip in there. 3DS COULD SO DO THAT!... That my friend is a troll.

Mine as it, but of course you can only see them in dark rooms and yes, I also had mine at launch. It was too bad Sony said this was normal part of OLED MFG but it still is pretty bad how many spots are on mine. They are like 3-4 giant blobs lol
