Microsoft recently revealed the Xbox One entertainment console and Sony has also recently revealed their PlayStation 4 console, which has resulted in many people comparing the two in terms of specs. According to Microsoft’s Albert Penello, the chief of product planning for Xbox, comparing the two in terms of specs is a “pointless argument because people are debating things which they don’t know about.”
“The problem is that Sony decided to go out and publish a bunch of numbers, which are in some ways meaningless. Because this isn’t like 1990, when it was 16-bit versus 32-bit,” Penello added. Microsoft’s Penello adds that the new Xbox One console as well as the upcoming game titles such as Call of Duty Ghosts are going to be “awesome.” Specs don’t really matter.
“So the whole numbers game – yeah, I’ve been following it online and it’s like, we tried having that argument last time. Do I want to talk about HDMI 1.3 or 1.4, it’s like ‘argh!’ It doesn’t matter. Did you see Call of Duty, it looks f**king awesome! It’s going to be great, you know. So we’re just saying, it’s not worth the debate,” Penello adds.
So there you have it. Penello wants us all to stop arguing about which console is better in terms of specs and simply enjoy the games.
