I didn't read that in the article at all, but I do agree with the sentiment as to how it's changed how games are marketed and viewed for the worse, and taken irrelevant info (prerelease resolutions ie Destiny beta lol) and brought it to the forefront whereas the game itself (you know, gameplay, story, characters etc) has been put on the back burner or disregarded entirely by some outlets if it's not 1080p60fps

all this^ just because the resolution is different doesn't mean anything its the same game on both systems for example if you play a boring game at lets say 720p playing it at 1080p won't make it more fun if graphics/resolution matter too you that much you really shouldn't be playing games at all imo (or maybe you should just stick to pc you can have all the graphics you want there)

So posting factual information about performance is 'bashing,' now?

Stay classy, X1 board.

It's factual that a Mercedes C350 and BMW 335i (closest comparatives for competing vehicles) are close to one another in all numbered performance aspects and owners of either car love 'em. There will be a marginal difference between the two in various performance (or power...) areas with one superseding the other, but focusing on such minute details entirely as they pertain to the overall experience of driving the car (or playing the game...) changes the marketing and customer perception and customer focus for the worse.

I drive a Mercedes and we always argue one vs the other but we still are intelligent adults and know it's more of a game to one up the other when at the end of the day the differences are marginal and we don't really care. This is exactly what the console wars are like except people do care for some reason, even though we're arguing $70,000 cars vs and this is $400 consoles vs and we still don't take it as seriously as console people do.

I couldn't have said it better myself. I think he is referring to this:

Just alludes to the fact that XB1 has substantially inferior hardware compared to the PS4.

Don't blame Digital Foundry for exposing it's flaws, it looks childish. The people have a right to know and I'm glad there is a site that informs the people.

Personally I'm ok with this because if there is one thing I've noticed things like gameplay, story, and character are so subjective that listening to someone's opinions on it is damn near pointless.

At least the technical aspects can't be argued or subjective.

For instance Thief was beatdown with bad reviews but I thought the stealth in that game was one of the best I've played in a long time.

Dude, it is a digital comparison website. They are doing what they have been doing for years and posting facts about performance and backing them up.

Thing is that because of the nature of the hardware used in the consoles, by and large, these comparisons favor the PS4.

Because of this people on this board consider it 'bashing' when, in actuality, it is just being a legitimate source of information.
