"Now this is the interesting bit, DICE confirms that the Frostbite 3 engine supports DirectX 11.1 API as revealed by DSOGaming.
“We use DX11.1, there are some optimizations in it (constant buffer offsets, dynamic buffers as SRVs) that we got in to the the API that improves CPU performance in our rendering when one runs with DX11.1. This will be in BF4.”
This means that PC and Xbox One versions of Battlefield 4 would be more optimized than PlayStation 4. "


That is something nobody seems to talk about. Xbox supports DirectX 11. Sony is using OpenGL.

Beings that most every game is developed on PC, typically using DirectX, this inherently gives the Xbox One a leg up in multiplats.

So because they used something that was available to them, that makes it more optimized on one system over the other? o.o

Fascinating deduction, I'm pretty sure they used whatever the PS4 had as well though, but keep on telling yourselves this, I know fanbots are struggling against the Sony fanboys right now.

If you believe used games are the industries problem, then you sir or ma'am are a fool.
