Apparently MS is trying to hide a huge Xbox One secret from the press/public.

#1__Cam__Posted 10/26/2013 6:34:14 AM(edited)
Basically, tons of reviewers/journalists are on Facebook/Twitter making hints at something very damaging. Microsoft isn't allowing any reviewers to make PS4 vs. Xbox One comparisons, nor are they handing out Xbone versions of games for reviews. Xbox One reviews are embargo'd until Noon on launch day.

From what a lot of sources are saying, in addition to the recent COD news, the console's ESRAM is this generation's Cell CPU, in the sense that it makes games harder to develop for, This results in a lot of multiplatform games being in lower resolutions, slower frame rates, and lower textures.

TL;DR - Xbox One versions of multiplatform software are noticeably "different" than their PS4 counterparts, and Microsoft isn't allowing journalists to talk about it, make X1/PS4 comparisons, or review Xbox On games in general until launch day.

seems you are making a big assumption.

Yeah, they're trying to keep this a secret for as long as possible, to fool as many as they can into believing both consoles are equal.
They're not.


Although I don't agree with journalists keeping quiet about this either, it's their ethical duty to report objectively and not to be silenced by a company.

Guess gaming journalism is a bit different from regular journalism.

This kind of **** is why the Bone deserves to be annihilated and M$ deserves to be booted out of the market.

#dealwithit

only people whi didnt see a gap in power were the major xbox homers
there is a difference
but i would still be surprised if it is anywhere near as big as some are saying
i personally would like to see a huge gap......but i bet it is only enough for hardcore to even care

i think in the end it will be like ps3 vs 360 and a bigger gap in console exclusive games

Review embargos, no way, thats unheard of. I am willing to bet ps4 games have review embargos as well. Almost all big releases have review embargos, if you think sony will take a chance of losing their preorders you are dead wrong.

This is why I'm never going to get a ps4
