Forums - Gaming Discussion - PS4 & Xbox One performance distance is closing!

We recently had the opportunity to interview Rebellion, the UK based development team behind the Sniper Elite series. Other than talking about Sniper Elite 3, the latest installment released just a few days ago, we asked their opinion on the recent Xbox One SDK update that unlocked 10% of the GPU (previously reserved for Kinect); they said that it should help close the gap with PlayStation 4, and it’s likely that the game will be patched on Xbox One to reflect this boost.

It’s a bit hard to tell right now – although there will of course be a little boost straight away – we should be supporting this in the future in Sniper Elite 3. In the end, just like last generation, it’s not just about the hardware – it’s about the tools, guidance and support you get from the platform holder that makes a huge difference, and I think it’s safe to say the distance is closing.

More sauce. Nice

 

What happens when Sony unloads their sauce?



Well, you did make another thread saying most people don't spot the difference anyway, soooo... I guess we're talking about reduced Kinect functionality for a visual boost that nobody is going to notice anyway? :D Wise trade indeed!

I'm just the one posting the news (Compliments to Ryuu96 for finding it in the first place as well).

Doesn't really bother me either way, but some people like to discuss this stuff so it's over to them...

I'm just teasin. :3 On the Hot Topics, this thread was listed directly after the other one, so when I saw they were from the same person, the contrast just seemed especially highlighted by their proximity. x3

So instead of a 50% advantage to PS4, it's just gonna be 49%?

No, that's never gonna happen, there will always be a gap and you'd be stupid to think otherwise.

That original 50% GPU peak difference is the hardware itself, the X1 simply has access to more of what it had in the first place now. So nope, still 50%

No where near 50% advantage.

 

It has an advantage of course, but it defnitely isn't at 50%.
