Why not the more powerful DDR5 like Sony used is the PS4?


They used DDR5 from the future?

How you even know what the difference is TC if you don't even know what a verb or adjective is?


grammar =/= hardware knowledge

Games are optimized to use the hardware the consoles have, so it doesn't matter which console has the most ram, the games look just as great on both.

I would imagine Microsft designed the Xbox to be more like a PC and in PCs you wouldn't use GDDR5 the way it is used in the PS4.

IDK, but what PS4 fanboys and trolls are conveniently missing out is the fact that MS put some eSRAM in the XB1, but Sony didn't. Why don't you ask the PS4 board why Sony opted to use nothing in place of eSRAM?


eSRAM is just a gimmick so you guys don't question why you are buying $500 system that is weaker than the $400 system.


Sony fanboys so price conscious after spending $599 for a weaker PS3.


Of course they are. All you heard on the PS3 board for 6 years was "$599" by xbox fanboys. Now that the roles are reversed though, it makes both sides hypocritical (although Sony fanboys are merely retaliating, while xbox fanboys are backpedaling.

I love how he "troll worded" his opening line though to give himself away immediately. The more sophisticated troll would have just left it at the ram but the uber-troll has to specifically work the ps4 into the sentence.

It's really actually getting pretty tough on the trolls now as the various issues ; hardware reliability , Kinect inclusion & spying , 1080p, price difference , etc. have been beaten to death so badly that anyone now creating a redundant topic about them becomes highly suspect...lol

LOL at all the whiners and trolls. They know Vita tv and new model will kill all competition. Festering wounds for the Nintendrones by the gallons. - karissa1

Because they were already $100 more than the competition with their forced Kinect.
