Clarification: PS4/Xbox One Performance Gap Won't Disappear
Sometimes, it's all in the interpretation.
Xbox Achievements posted an excerpt of an interview with Oddworld creator Lorne Lanning, and the article was entitled, "Performance Gap Between Xbox One and PS4 Will Disappear."
As you might expect, that got plenty of attention around the Internet. But to clarify those statements, WorldsFactory asked Just Add Water CEO Stewart Gilray about Lanning's comments. Were they misconstrued? Apparently so:
"Actually that is NOT what he said. I spoke to Lorne afterwards and what he meant when speaking to that guy was that budgets, schedules and perceivable differences would narrow, NOT that the Xbox One performance is improving to align with PS4, that is just physically impossible. The PS4 has MORE COMPUTE units, and faster memory and a whole bunch of things, that would make that physically impossible to happen."
That's a whole different thing, isn't it? I find it mildly amusing that Xbox-oriented sites are desperately trying to find praise for the Xbox One...praise that, thus far in the generation, is kinda sparse.
