Forums - Gaming Discussion - PS4 and XB1 too weak for last years games?

After reading Ethomez's latest thread pointing out how the XB1 is maintaining lower frame rates and resolutions than the PS4 on a game, the only thing that I got out of this situation is that there is trouble in the future.  

His time would have been better served pointing out that neither of the 2 month old systems have the power to run a year old game!  Sure, the game can be played on either system.  But what about delivering on 1080p x 60fps?  

Everyone seems so caught up in trying to prove or debate about how the XB1 is the weaker system(it is), that the whole point that the next gen isn't all that next gen after all.  I know that system exclusives will probably meet this performance by limiting the game to achieve this.  But games that are true multi-plats will prove that neither system is really up to par.  Why have we all just accepted that the gameplay will have to be impacted probably significantly in just 2-3 years?

 

So, the debate should really be "which of the 2 new systems that are underpowered do you prefer?".

They run them fine, one just runs them better then the other......dumb thread sorry. If you want graphics like PC, consoles would be 800 bucks.

Since when is running 1080p and averaging 50 fps not being able to handle a game?

 

There is no DEBATE x1 is significantly weaker, and tomb raider is not a last year game it has major enhancements like treessfx that are very demanding. please. nonsense.

 

The x1 might have an issue but ps4 doesn;t



There is no debate proving x1 is weaker, its a well know fact.

and lol.

Both consoles were yesterdays technology the day they were released. The X1 does something new (integrated kinect) that no one gives a rat's ass about and the PS4 is just a PS3 with some better chips. Launch games hardly differ from their PS360 versions and still fanboys are willing to pay 400-500 dollars/euros for those machines. Well not me, this 'next generation' the Wii U is the only console that was worth buying and I will not buy an X1 or PS4 in the near future. Only when it has a major price cut and more important: SOME GOOD GAMES!

LMFAO  Thanks i needed that.

How is U worth buying if it has no games worth playing.  A 99.99 wii kart bundle and a $10 Galxy is a much better buy then anything wiiu combination.

Then why do you repeat that much?



Both have shitty hardware (X1 the worst) but at least there's difference between 8th generation and 7th, a difference that Wii U can't show.

But the most important thing are games and for the moment in that X1 wins

*sigh*

It's worth buying cause the HD graphics of the Wii U are a major improvement over the Wii graphics which were very outdated. Does the PS4 or X1 has that much of an improvement? No it doesn't. Besides that, the Wii U has plenty games worth buying, if you can't see that, then that's your loss.

You do realize that with TR-DE the ADDED stuff like, more dynamic environments and equipment, subsurface scattering, new textures, etc. Stuff that wasn't in the year old TR game on PC, PS3 and XB360. Granted a relativly powerful (but most likely more expensive) PC would run it better but this isn't last year's game. If the simply ported it over from last gen it'd run better on both now current-gen platforms.
