This website is still calling the new xbox the 720, and you guys really that big of fanboys that your really believing this stuff 5 or 6 months before release lol.
5 or 6 months prior to release, nothing in the hardware is going to change.
Both systems run on 8-core processors with 8GB of RAM and a Blu-ray drive. That is where the similarities end. The PS4 uses GDDR5 RAM and the XBO uses DDR3 RAM. When Sony revealed the hardware specs for the PS4 in February, the top dogs at M$ most likely had a stroke, because they knew to keep up with the PS4 would require going back to the drawing board, which would mean a delay of at least a year, likely two.
Both systems have likely been in development since 2010-2011. Not much is going to change once the major components (the architecture - CPU, GPU, RAM) is set.
The PS4 reveal was all about the games and the capabilities. The XBO reveal seemed to be all about everything EXCEPT the games.
Sony 1, Microsoft 0.
LOL ^ THIS F TARD is halarious ! Go ahead bro look me up , same GT as PS3, LOL Do yourself a favor STAY in school, do something productive, besides stalking people on forums and trying to intimidate people ...BTW thats my second account.
i dont want to buy an xbox, and if i purchase a ps4 depends heavily on if i can use a regular playstation controller. i hate the new one.
the controller is why i even got a ps3 and i use that style on my pc for gaming.
How can you hate something you have never even touched?
For anybody who doesn't speak the same dialect as the direct area where your console was produced will likely have MANY issues regarding the speech recognition with this system.
Throw into that the fact that MS has generally been a company that takes a little while to get their software working completely properly after it's been released.
Proper voice recognition requires a fairly robust system to break down the speech of the person who is talking and pick out specific soundwaves used for the commands. Throw in thick, local accents into that process and the recognition isn't so easy.
Therefore, it makes me quite certain that this feature will require an always on connection to the internet so that it can make use of the dedicated systems on MS's network in order to properly handle the countless number of accents and languages across the world.
Don't forget, it also opens up the possibility for hilarious trolling by people in your house who can just randomly yell "XBOX OFF!" while you are playing a game and suddenly it turns off. (If not popping up a screen asking "do you want to turn off the system", which would do a good job of ruining an online game).
Or, if Sony and/or Nintendo really want to be funny, they can create a commercial that plays on TV which ends with the phrase "Turn your XBOX OFF, and play our system.", and if the voice-controls aren't perfected, your system will turn off. Lol.
I just think the voice-control thing is a really bad idea with far more potential problems than benefits. A truly effective system would be far too costly to include in a console. Also, have you ever heard anyone say after getting off the phone with some company's support line "Oh man, I LOVE the voice recognition thing they used. It was so easy and quick to respond!"?
