There IS a single fact that is very relevant to our times...People want innovation and more integration. It will never stop and it can't stop. We are not in the days of the nintendo and sega genesis anymore.
People want consoles to do more than just games because then it becomes necessary to the function of entertainment. I want a console that can do it all or most of it anyway. Most people base their decision to buy a console based on statements like " its 50% more powerful", in gaming terms when you sit a noob down to play a particular game, i garantee that they wouldn't be able to tell which one was which from the xbox 1 and ps4. People make it seems like its as drastic as comparing 60 fps to 120 fps monitor. Its not that serious, please choose a box from either company and enjoy it for what it does, sounds to me like if you aren't into media and entertainment perfs grab a ps4.
First of all, you aren't talking to noobs, but uniformed customers are uninformed everywhere. That means they don't know they can skype, watch football, and play a game in the background either.
We are not comparing 60 fps to 120 FPS. These are both considerably weak GPUs. The PS4 being less weak.

Judging by my own numbers however, the Xbox One "target" may even be lower. We are talking in the gutter FPS in some cases. You are also on an overclock website, where it is our job/hobby to literally figure this stuff out.
Graphics wise, you are going to be paying more for a lot less.Edited by RagingCain - 8/22/13 at 6:45pm
