    PS4 already won

    • Rower

      Everyone knows that! : D

    • DLConspiracy//

      PS4 is the only console anyone ever needs. There are no differences when it comes to consoles except hardware. They share the same experience, exclusives, OS, online infrastructure and everything except PS4 is more powerful. There is no way that any other console can be enjoyable based on these awards. People who say they enjoy games on Xbox and Wii u are making it up because the majority of people who own a ps4 out weight the enjoyment of Wii u and Xbox combined. 8 million in sales is leap years above 6 million with wii or even leap years past 5 million with Xbox. When will people learn that 5 million people is absolutely nothing? PS4 is headed to total domination and I for one applaud them. Its about time one stood up and wiped other gaming experiences off the face of the planet. Why enjoy numerous consoles when its clearly PS4 that is the only valid gaming source that anyone can enjoy. We win!

      • Not_true

        Meltdown.

        • DLConspiracy//

          Haha Nah, just wanted to see what it was like to be completely oblivious. Its weird.

          • Not_true

            All 3 consoles have good games and have their plusses and minuses. It’s only fanboys mindlessly trashing one or the other.

          • DLConspiracy//

            I know I was poking.

      • Ryan Rath

        I beg to differ on the operating systems. Vastly different actually. Sony PS4 uses Orbis OS, which is similar to the FreeBSD distribution of Linux, while Microsoft utilizes a custom “Xbox OS” which compliments Windows 8 and RT of that of PC and tablets. It also uses virtualization technology called Hyper V that allocates its system resources to be able to run the custom OS. Microsoft is actually utilizing 3 different OS’s at once to accomplish different tasks.

        • DLConspiracy//

          What ever the PS4 OS is. Its superior in every way.

          • Ryan Rath

            I’m not defending either console. I’m being objective, but if you want to compare apples to oranges, then in all actuality, Microsoft’s Operating System is certainly more flexible and “easier” to code in, than Linux based operating systems. Sony certainly has the better hardware, but what good is DX 11 components, when D3D isn’t supported in anything other than Windows?

          • DLConspiracy//

            Actually man. I own both but my point is that what I said is accepted more in the comments most times. Its a competition to people online. Which personally is just stupid. Some people like some foods better than others doesn’t mean that the less popular food isn’t delicious. My apologies for misleading. I hate one sided gaming.

          • Ryan Rath

            It’s not necessarily misleading, just correcting one portion of your statement is all. I really try not to be a jerk about things, because what good is starting endless and pointless arguments about something so trivial? I do understand your point about one sided gaming though and that’s where I really try to be objective about both sides of the equation.

          • DLConspiracy//

            You may be even more so than me. I find that I lean based on my experiences and nostalgia amongst friends. It’s hard not to when we relate with our friends in the same way. I think people should be open to each side instead of assume and just write off one or the other.

      • HawaiianDread

        Was going to ask you about your change of heart but notice your not the original DLConspiracy.

        • DLConspiracy//

          No its me. People need to know that if more people enjoy something the rest don’t matter. :)

      • http://www.sony.com Based Sony

        Now that’s a member of the based Sony fanbase!

      • aintwhatitlookslike

        Says the massive xbox fan boy lmao this guys everywhere defending Microsoft. I really hope your a shill and getting paid for this mate because if your not your quite sad. This guy would love nothing more than ps4 and Sony to fail ive seen lots of his negative ps4/sony views. So with thase comments hes actually contradicting himself

        • DLConspiracy//

          Wrong.

      • Raian K.

        LOL comparing PSN to XBL is like comparing a Benz S- Class against a Toyota Avalon, they may both be flagships of their respective brands, but one is much more superior to the other. In this case XBL like being the Benz.

        • DLConspiracy//

          I prefer XBL over PSN. As I like MP gaming, clear chat and heavier dedicated servers.. The service is more than just ‘free’ games. PSN sure is shinier at a glance. Sort of a slight of hand tactic. However, every PS only fan will argue that and say it isn’t but they don’t own both to know the difference. I do.

        • superkarma

          In your opinion. Many others (including myself) feel PSN is superior over XBL. It’s all preference. Don’t attempt to push your preference as fact.

          • DLConspiracy//

            That’s not fair. I own both and can physically tell the difference. If you don’t believe me try party chat on each. The sound quality is different on both. I notice because I will switch after playing one.

          • superkarma

            It is fair. The 360 was my first console for last gen and I owned it for most of the gen. The sound quality has absolutely nothing to do with XBL/PSN. That’s a hardware/software issue, not a service issue.

            It’s preference. Nothing more, nothing less.

          • DLConspiracy//

            No its not. I have gone to great lengths to rule out hardware by using various headsets. I even used the exact same headset on both consoles while talking to my same friend on both consoles. We like to test it out. How is that preference. Do you own both? If not, how would you even know? Xbox One NOT 360.

          • superkarma

            Yes, it actually is. Sound quality is not tied to the service. No idea why you seem to think it is. Sound quality depends on the codec and the audio/decoder chip in the console. Whether you use XBL or PSN. that has absolutely nothing to do with either one. Slap the Skype codec on a PS3/PS4 (assuming it has a chip that can handle it) and you’ll get the same quality as X1.

            I don’t need to own an X1 to know whether someone likes XBL or PSN is a preference. I used XBL for most of last gen. I know all about the service. Dedicated servers is probably the only thing I’d consider as an advantage over PSN. For me, that’s not enough persuade me over to XBL, especially since the bigger games this gen will likely use their own servers and/or mix between dedicated and P2P/listen.

          • DLConspiracy//

            While some of that is true. You are forgetting it takes servers to run chat and regardless of the codec that you are referring to the bit rate can also be tuned for speed. Especially if you are running on far less servers. Why is it that using the exact same headsets as my friend (who is also using the exact same headset on his side to compare, not the ear bud BTW) experiences and hears the same thing I do?. In fact why do all of my multi console friends feel the same way? There is something off about the Ps chat. My only guess is because of the servers or because they lower the nitrate of the stream in order to free up server space.

          • superkarma

            Why is it not the same quality on PS4 as the X1? Simple — I just explained it above. The X1 uses a different codec than the PS4. That’s a software issue. It has nothing to do with the XBL service itself. Your guess about the servers is completely unfounded and is exactly that…a guess.

            I’m not trying to say the X1 chat quality isn’t better. It is. There’s no denying that. All I’m saying is that it has nothing to do with XBL and everything to do with the codec/chip.

          • DLConspiracy//

            That’s fair enough. I don’t know much about the codecs they are using to say such things. I thought you were arguing it was just as good of quality. It drives me nuts when people say that it is because its more than obvious to me. I only make the bitrate comparison because I work with music and recording and to me it sounds like an lower bit rate. Say a 98kb mp3 vs a 320kb mp3. When I am at the club I can always tell when someone is thing using less than 320.

          • DLConspiracy//

            In either case its important in online gaming to have clear chat as most mp games use teamwork to achieve a competitive match to win. At least in team based objectives. Interesting what you said about the codecs. I had no clue. I just assumed it was the network.

          • Raian K.

            Party chat quality isn’t really network bro, it has more to do with the audio codec and in that realm the Xbox One has a superior block.

          • DLConspiracy//

            So I am learning I always thought it was because of the servers. .

          • Raian K.

            Nah man its the audio codec as that plays a huge proportion to the decoding of audio language. However what the network allows for is the number of clients per chat so having a superior network allows more people to be able to enter the same chat.

          • DLConspiracy//

            I guess I compared it to Spotify free vs Spotify premium. If you use the free Spotify versus 192kb streaming audio vs the 320kb stream on premium. So it made sense to me. Yeah, 32 people in chat is a lot more but I have yet to achieve that many people in a party yet.

          • Raian K.

            I honestly haven’t either only 12 at max, which I wish the PS4 could do a lot of times I do 6vs6 matches or massive teams on BF4 and it sucks being limited to 8.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Yeah that’s about the most I have had too. I agree. Its nice to not have that one friend out of the game now.

          • Raian K.

            Opinion is your preference in a network based on friends. I prefer PSN as I have way more friends from school playing on it. However you cannot argue the facts, which is XBL network quality is much more superior. 300,000 dedicated servers, advanced P2P connection via XBL, smart match integration, and its encryption is much better than PSN.

            Don’t get me wrong I think PS Plus is much more superior than that of Games with Gold, but you cannot argue network quality in favor of PSN simply cause its no where as good.

          • DLConspiracy//

            I am pretty much on the same page as you on this. Friends always trump quality though regardless.

          • Jecht_Sin

            Are you really still going on with that 300,000 dedicated servers fairytale? Not even MS ever speaks about them anymore.

          • Raian K.

            Fairy tale? Every single Xbox exclusive besides DR3 uses dedicated servers for multiplayer, not to mention in the developers conference they addressed how it’ll help with development of games that use a lot of bandwidth or are massive in terms of MP count. Games like MMO’s and etc.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Yeah but neither does Sony with it’s 15,000 servers. They both stated that E3 2013 on stage.

      • theodor70941

        “They share the same experience, exclusives, OS, online infrastructure”

        1, a exclusive isn’t exclusive… Well, if it’s on more then one system.

        2, Xbox One’s Operating system is a customized version of Windows 8, Windows have and will always be DOS based. Where as PSvita use LiveArea and PS4 use Playstation Dynamic Menu as their OS… Plus all OS’s made by Sony are Unix based a system that Microsoft won’t touch.

        3, PS4/PS3/PSvita use PSN and Sony entertainment network where as 360/X1 use Xbox Live and Microsoft’s cloud services.

        Some people should get some facts before they’re allowed to post…

        • DLConspiracy//

          I was making a point by posting drivel. I own both console and soon a Wii u. Each have value and people enjoy them each regardless of their sales number.

          • theodor70941

            I never said a thing about sales numbers… So why are you pointing that out?

          • DLConspiracy//

            I was referring to the original post. “PS4 already won” when I meant drivel.

          • TheLastGuardian

            It already won. That’s a fact. “First to 10 mill wins” – MS last gen. “PS3 had subpar HD graphics” – Major Nelson last gen.

        • Daniel Lawson

          Windows has been a shell since 98… Windows ME was the first to not be a shell and used emulation also was first pure 32 bit OS… caused issues with old 16 bit and 8 bit ports Windows 2000 completed the removal of DOS… cmd.exe became a command within windows rather then win.com being a shell over MS-DOS

          • TheLastGuardian

            Best PC controller on the market is the DS4 IMO. X360 controller close second.

          • DLConspiracy//

            I still use my 360 controller for PC.

  • Ryan Rath

    Oh man, here comes the fanboy rage arguments….I have a PS4 and it is in fact a stronger console hardware wise. Xbox One probably has the better games at the current moment with Ryse and Forza in particular. I will admit Knack is awful and Killzone isn’t that fun even though it somehow got an award over other games. But in the end, that first award kind of says it all:

    “PS4 Development Team (Sony Computer Entertainment) – For building a platform that developers can really exploit.”

    Developers have already said it’s easier to develop games since the PS4 uses a Pitcairn based GPU (R9-270 or HD 7870) which is a bit stronger than the Xbox One using the equivalent of a Cape Verde based HD 7770. To be precise, Sony’s Kabini based APU has roughly 18 compute units on it, while Microsoft opted for a less powerful version of the Kabini/Temash based Jaguar built off of enhancments of the “Bobcat” based Llano with roughly 12 compute units. Assuming each compute unit houses 64 stream processors per compute unit, that puts PS4 and Xbox One at 1152 and 768 respectively. Not to mention the bandwidth is better with Sony’s choice of GDDR 5 memory over Microsoft’s choice of GDDR 3.

    These numbers are just plain black and white and this is not some fanboy attempt at trolling. You can’t argue which console is the stronger of the two and thus a little easier to develop on. Both finally utilize x86 architecture, and both were wise to go with AMD products as Mantle can be used in upcoming games enhancing frame rates with lower level API’s. I’m not putting the Xbox One down, and if you enjoy to game on it, then hey, to each his own. I intend to buy an Xbox One when they go down in price, but happy I have chosen the PS4 for now.

      have you not played infamous? also all the free ps+ games, mercenary kings was amazing. i platinumed that shit. ryse and forza are shit, why state those are the best games for xbone. dead rising and titanfall are more like the better games

      • Ryan Rath

        Honestly I can’t believe I forgot Infamous. That is a great game. Infamous is really the one AAA title that Sony has at the current moment that’s a fantastic title. As for PS+ games, I haven’t been impressed, but that’s just me personally. I’m not a big indie lover, but willing to give them a try. My thought process is I didn’t buy a $400 console to play pixelated 8 bit type games on. I could break out my NES for that, or run an emulator on my PC. Not saying it’s a bad game by any means, just not for me necessarily. Once we start getting more and more AAA games available, then we’ll see some pretty good options on Playstation Network, though I will say that all the free games offered every month for PS+ subscribers is really honestly a pretty big perk for Sony owners. That goes for PS3, PS4, PS Vita and PSP. That’s impressive.

    • Jacques Onterio Thomas

      Virgin.

    • Bobbbbby5

      The difference in raw power is there, but it’s not nearly as significant as the numbers make them seem. Bandwidth, for instance, is something that a lot of people like to bring up when it’s really not an issue at all if a developer knows what they’re doing (as in, they’ve made games before).
      It’s like comparing the specs of the 360 and PS3, you’d expect a lot of differences based on the raw numbers but they performed nearly the same.

      But regardless, there will always be a resolution disparity. You forgot the most important difference and the main reason for this disparity.
      It has half the ROPs. Even if it could match visuals 1:1 it could never match the pixel or texture fill rate.

      • Not_true

        360 and PS3 were very different architectures. PS4 and XB1 have very similar AMD x86 APU architectures, very easy to compare the two.

        Factual PS4 Hardware Advantages: +6 CUs, +540 GFlops (40% greater) or more, +16 ROPs, +6 ACEs/CQs, better GPGPU support (volatile bit and onion+ gpu cache bypass bus), better performing CPU, faster unified memory, and less OS overhead.

        40% more GFlops alone is enough to bump from 720p to 900p or 900p to 1080p.

        XB1 has memory size and bandwidth bottlenecks, weaker GPU and GPGPU, only 16 ROPs, and OS virtualization overhead that degrades gaming performance. Take your pick.

        Anyway, it seems most console gamers are ignoring attempts to downplay PS4′s stronger hardware and buying PS4s anyway.

      • Ryan Rath

        No I understand that, and I didn’t go into greater detail than I could have about the hardware differences. Usually resolution has more to do with VRAM and how it is utilized. At least in conventional PC’s with dedicated PCI-X GPU’s. Since we’re dealing with Kabini/Temash based APU’s however, both are Octacore (8 core) obviously meaning onboard GPU integrated on the same die as the CPU with each core assigned a different affinity to handle the various loads.

        As for texture fill rate is concerned, that’s also the major difference between a lower budget video card as in the case of the Xbox One. Cape Verde based AMD HD 7770 equivalent based on the numbers as compared to the Pitcairn in the PS4.

        You were right in the case concerning the differences between the Xbox 360 and PS3. Theoretically, numbers wise, should have been vastly different. The PS3 used a Nvidia Based RSX (Reality Synthesizer) custom GPU. PS3 offered 24 pixel shader pipelines @ 550 MHz as opposed to the Xbox 360′s 48 unified shaders @ 500 MHz. Microsoft used a custom designed AMD GPU based off the old X1800 GPU. This equated to roughly 21 more billion shader operations per second produced by the Xbox 360, but if you take a look at the raw numbers the PS3 put out better bandwidth at around 22.6 GB/s with less system RAM. In Theory and on paper the Xbox should have been a stronger system, but now that we’re finally in the x86 architecture days of PC computing with the PS4 and Xbox 1, D3D development really reflects what hardware the developers have to work with. In this case the Xbox simply cannot hack it in the 1080p department and expect solid frame rates. Frankly, I do not understand Microsoft’s design decisions.

    • Alkaporty

      There’s no “I will admit” it’s all a question of opinion. I find Knack like a cool little game, I had fun with it but it’s not worth $60 and Killzone is just amazing, never was a fan of that game but I’m pretty sick and tired of current yearly releasing FPS in which you die with two bullets, the MP is the best on PS4 imo.

      So down the road, if the performance doesn’t matter to you, it all comes to opinions and preferences.

    • Castor Troy

      Maybe Killzone is not fun to you, but it’s my most played game since i’ve got my ps4! The multiplyer is superb and even the campaign gets better when you play on the hardest difficult and start using the owl and the map design! Let me tell you something, Killzone is underrated franchise and that is mainly because of the CoD noobs, no autoaim, no play!

      • Ryan Rath

        I didn’t mean to say it’s a bad game, but to be objective regarding both consoles, Titanfall, and Forza in particular are outselling anything Sony has to offer. Yes the PS4 has outsold more consoles, and frankly I’m more partial to the PS4 just based on the gaming experience alone with better hardware, and not to mention I’m excited for upcoming exclusives such as No Man’s Sky, Uncharted 4, DriveClub, The Order 1886, and hopefully God of War if they ever get around to that. Titles such as Batman, Evolve, and Destiny predictably will offer a better experience on the PS4 as opposed to the Xbox One simply basing my predictions on just hardware alone. I know Bungie said they are working on getting 1080p out of Destiny for the Xbox, but it hasn’t been set it stone yet. At least we know we’ve already seen it, even in the Alpha last month. Perhaps Xbox owners will get the same experience in the Beta next week (well, two weeks for them).

        Anyway, I didn’t mean to offend regarding Killzone. Like I said, it’s not a bad game, I was just trying to be objective in the current exclusive games out at the moment.

    • Kingdom17

      First, I applaud you for making such a sane, and logical comment, thank you for actually having a conversation on this site.

      Now about the games, meh. On KZSF, it didn’t get an award because it was fun, it got because its down right beautiful (Personally just played the campaign some, thought it was so so). I choose the PS4 because its my main consoles, and I know there’ll be many more games that I will love on it.

      • Ryan Rath

        Thanks man, I just try to be objective about things is all. I hate starting the typical fan boy wars and really just do my best to see both sides.

      Too bad they didn’t opt for a better CPU, i’m not sure about the 7770 but the 7870/270 should be performing much better.

    • Young Franky

      Its said that the PS4 will be getting early access to some games in the future. Not including destiny.

    • Raian K.

      In the end their both have crappy hardware, netbook parts on steroids. They both utilize average GPU that are bottlenecked by a horrible CPU. If you really that obsessed with graphical performance PC is the way to go. In the end what defines each console is their software library and to that end they are aren’t all that different.

      • Ryan Rath

        Little more than netbook parts (well, other than the shoddy HGST 5400 RPM drive in the PS4), but I am too a PC gamer through and through. I own a PS4 and frankly am disappointed with even though the “next gen” consoles are now x86 architecture we still won’t see ports such as Drive Club, Gears of War, God of War, Uncharted 4, Forza and the list goes on. Sure, PC hardware is easily interchangeable and upgradeable. Consoles will still sell for one reason alone and that is the exclusives. At least we’re finally in the age of DX 11, and x86 architecture.

        Bu bu bu just buy a PC! 8.5+ million PS4s and counting. An 8 core Jaguar and 1.84TF GPU isn’t something you’ll find in a netbook. You’re wrong.

        PS4 is selling on price/performance, the best visuals on console multiplats, better PR and global appeal, long term 1st party support, large number of 1st party studios, more total games and dev support including Japanese and indie devs, wider variety of games, and PS+ value.

      77xx are based on the 79xx GPU right…. just saying… but you’re wrong they are based on exactly the same chip sets

  • someguy

    Lol, what will Xbox fans say when the Ps4 is shown to be better by the CEDEC themselves, will they still deny it and call bullshit or say it doesn’t matter what you play on, as long as you’re having fun. Lol I can’t wait to see.

      They can always say “This is a conspiracy against Xbone”. LOL

    • Not_true

      Considering Xbox One or Kinect aren’t even nominated in the Engineering category, they’ll just accuse them of Japanese bias or conspiracy.

      Reminds me of the same Xbots who doubted the power of the Cell.

      Hmm, sounds like M$ paid them off. Everyone knows PS+ is better.

      It really doesn’t matter what you play on. That isn’t an excuse lol. If you don’t see that, then i’m guessing you have more fun on these threads than on a PS4. I say “a” PS4 because you probably don’t have one anyway. I own all three big systems and when i’m having fun with Mario Kart, I don’t stop and think- wait a sec, my PS4 is more powerful, therefore I am not having fun unless I go beat Infamous for the 6th time. Having fun is subjective and a legitimate reason why it does not matter which console is more powerful.

    Some quick congratulations are in order. (As obvious, my own personal praises)

    Congrats Sony for bagging 20% of the mentioned awards.
    Congrats to Final Fantasy being mentioned twice in the sounds department.
    Hurray for Wii U’s gamepad.
    … and yay for JoJo getting praise for its style. Gotta love dem impossible flexes.

  • superkarma

    Damn, Sony is just sweeping up the awards recently. Of course, these in particular are just nominations, but getting 5 of them (3 specific to the PS4) is an award in itself. Congrats to them. Hopefully they win their respective categories.

    Microsoft Development Team (Microsoft Japan) – For the Peer To Peer Network Architecture of the Xbox One.

    Anyone got any details about this one? Other than Skype I don’t see any P2P functionality on the XB1. Is there something else that use P2P on the XB1?

    • Bobbbbby5

      Possibly incorrectly referring to the way it handles listen servers.

  • Young Franky

    also anyone notice what Adam Boyes said at E32014 Ea’s conference, hes happy to announce a partnership with Disney? I sense some exclusive Star Wars content.

  • PrinceHeir

    Great!

  • Daniel Lawson

    the Xbox One doesn’t use a Peer to Peer Network >_>

    • Spoonyrogdrumps

      That hurts them big time. That’s why games like MMO’s won’t be on the system. They are lucky Destiny is console exclusive.

      • Daniel Lawson

        no… all of Microsoft’s games are ran server side for MP

        • Spoonyrogdrumps

          I was thinking you were talking about the reasons why games like MMO’s aren’t on Xbox One a lot so far. FFXIV isn’t on Xbox One because they won’t allow cross platform play. Though Elder Scrolls Online is said to come to XBO.

          • Daniel Lawson

            Final Fantasy 11 does it… then Don came… Don is gone so I assume this will also go away

          • Daniel Lawson

            FF11 allows it even now on X360… Don Mattrick came in a screwed that whole thing up
