Mr. Penello on 1080p and 60FPS: "It's not that great.."

Albert Penello being careful with his response to multiplatforms running better on PS4. How does he justify the more expensive console? Can you really blame him? He works for MS, so naturally he's not just gonna cleanly admit "yes that console has more power than ours". PR is part of his job.

"Look, I've had a lot of time to think about this and I believe in what I said. I believe that the differences [between the PS4 and Xbox One] is not that great.."
Then he goes on to make analogies about going to a movie theater and other fillers.

So far, game tech sources like Digital Foundry and others have shown most 3rd party games perform better since launch on PS4. A small chart in this interesting article:

http://kotaku.com/why-it-matters-that-ps4-games-are-higher-resolution-th-1475165066

Call of Duty: Ghosts
PS4: 1920x1080 (1080p) | Xbox One: 1280x720 (720p)

Battlefield 4
PS4: 1600x900 (900p) | Xbox One: 720p

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag (Via The Verge)
PS4: 1080p | Xbox One: 900p

Need for Speed: Rivals
PS4: 1080p | Xbox One: 1080p


Then AC4 owners got that patch from Ubisoft that bumps the res to 1080. Did the Xbone version get this update? I didn't know as I don't play AC.

The movie theater analogy is hilarious.

Lol good ol Penello.

Isn't this the guy crying on NeoGAF that the X1 was just as powerful and it isn't all about specs?

Seems now he knows he can't run that reassurance line to his customers, he has to turn to mitigating the fallout of having inferior multiplats.

My theory on trolls:

PC trolls troll PS4 users.
PS4 trolls troll X1 users.
X1 trolls troll WiiU users.
WiiU users get dumped on.

Or maybe just trolls troll everyone. I don't know.

:P

Ryse 900p/30fps destroys Killzone 1080p/30fps and Tomb Raider 1080p/50fps.

If resolution and frame-rate superiority with ported last gen games helps you to sleep easier at night, more power to you. X1 will more than hold it's own when next gen actually arrives.

PS4 can't even handle BF4 past 900 res, so I'm not worried.
