I remember back in the PS3 and 360 generation, microsoft had a rule with developers stating if the game did not perform the same or better then the competition then they did not allow it on their system.. i read that a while back..

but now games like COD ghost, battlefield 4 and now tomb raider DE are all looking and performing better on the PS4..

MS didn't focus on games this gen and it shows. Also falling behind the PS4 in sales means they don't have as much power over developers as they did last gen when the 360 was in the lead for most of its life.

Just having the games in a working condition is good enough. If Microsoft were to enforce such a rule, this console would have less games.

Lords of Shadow 2 (02/25/2014) will be GoTY 2014 for PS3/360 and best H&S of the generation. Optional QTEs, 20 hours gameplay, epic story, and challenging!

That makes sense, but as games later require more graphical power then it will get even worst.. i think microsoft should allow developers to use that extra 10% of power lock for kinect.. should be up to developers not microsoft.

So having more games at launch and for the following year than the competition means they didn't focus on games? Wow... Just wow.

They didn't focus on games specs-wise. The Xbone's hardware isn't up to par compared to the PS4, which itself is a mid-range PC at best.

Sorry, but you are talking c***. Game developers have not yet utilised the full potential of ESRAM, are not yet (AFAIK) using dx 11.2 or tiled resources and you say MICROSOFT is not focusing on game specs?

Im pretty sure that such a rule would be anti-competitive and invite lawsuits
