Do Xbox One Fans Even Care That The PS4 Is More Powerful?
I'm no technical wizard; I just know that the general consensus is that the PlayStation 4 has more raw capability than the Xbox One.
Perhaps this why we're seeing slightly better performance in the PS4 versions of many high-profile multiplatform games. Then again, maybe you don't believe it at all, and you think the two systems are equally matched in terms of power.
I'm just wondering if Xbox One owners care one way or the other. Thing is, whenever you bring up the power argument, they all scoff and pretend that in fact, it's meaningless. What I find ironic is that Xbox fanatics were crowing about how powerful the original Xbox was (in comparison with the PS2), and I distinctly recall Microsoft ads that touted their new console as the "most powerful video game console on earth," or something like that. Of course, the fans reversed field when the Xbox 360 arrived and the PS3 was more powerful...
I'm one of the first to say that great graphics don't guarantee a great interactive experience. I'm also quick to admit that I don't know the first thing about game hardware, and what makes one setup better or more powerful than the other. I just want to know, in all honesty, whether or not the Xbox One owners put any stock into the difference in power.
And if not, why?
