Console Wars – Be Happy For Each Other

Call of Duty:Ghosts was released this week with devastating reports that when released on the next gen consoles it would be native 1080p on the PS4 but only up-scaled 720p on the Xbox One. 

This is obviously a marketing disaster for the Xbox, however can they ride the storm and get through this.  The answer should be yes to the informed but it is the uninformed that could be the issue.  The issues are apparently that whilst the PS4 is a little more powerful than the Xbox, this is not the main contributor to the downscale.  The PS has not come out unscathed either, in the last few days it has been reported that the PS4 version has dropped frames, hinting that it is struggling to cope with the 60 frames per second at the native 1080p.

XboxOne1As with every generation of new consoles, it takes time for the developers to get to grips with the new operating systems and patches are sure to be rolled out overtime fixing these issues.  We are still seeing ground breaking games being released on the current gen of consoles just going to show that developers will constantly improve what they can achieve from the hardware over time, the Xbox360 being over 8 years old.

The thing I don’t understand is all the arguments between each camps fan boys.  The Xbox guys will always refer to the PS accounts being hacked and the PS guys will always refer to to the early versions of Xbox 360 with the red rings of death.

Currently it is a fact that the PS is more powerful than the Xbox one, however there are many things that in my opinion are a benefit on the Xbox.  However whilst I feel my choice of pre ordering the Xbox One is the best decision, it does not at any stage make me hope for PS4 people to have issues or to be disappointed with their decision.PS4_lg

However looking over social sites like Twitter, various forums and particularly some friends it seems to be a common theme to feel superior by stating their choice is the right one and that others should be ashamed if they do not agree.

If it wasn’t for competition neither Microsoft or Sony would continue to work on adding things to try and make their device the more desired.  Therefore all gamers should embrace the other, acknowledge when the other has something good “The Last Of Us” looked amazing on the PS3.  But lets just as gamers be happy for the other side.  It gives us something to talk about.  Owning one does not make you superior to another, lets face it you just handed over cash for it, you had no input into it.

Just game and have fun and stop all the bitching!
