There has been a lot of talk about which console is more powerful and better for developers to make games with. Microsoft has previously stated their CPU is 10% faster than the PlayStation 4 CPU but that looks like it has now been debunked.
A poster on Neogaf called Matt, who is a well known and respected developer on both next gen consoles, had the following to say during a discussion about the merits of each consoles CPU
Yes, you can get more out of the PS4’s CPU than you can the Xbox’s.
This sparked off a conversation frenzy on Neogaf but in the end no one could step up with any proof to the latter and the universal agreement is that the PlayStation 4 has the more powerful CPU and that since both have been released it has become apparent that the Xbox One is struggling to keep up with the power of the PlayStation 4.
This is really bad news for Microsoft and along with the fact that they made the bad decision to not release into more regions at launch spells a future of pain and frustration for Xbox fans and Microsoft alike.
I have to admit that I have cancelled my order to get a UK version right now due to financial issues and the fact that the early news coming out of the press isn’t looking too kindly on the Xbox One.
The PlayStation 4 appears to be the console for the gamers this time around and I’m looking forward to getting my hands on one of those as soon as the first great games appear for it.[Update] A developer from Ubisoft Montreal has tweeted us to say this statement is entirely untrue. I’m waiting for more information but for now keep remembering this is all the information we have at the moment.
@lazygamers That article is completely untrue. You really shouldn't print unproven rumors, oh wait games journalism 😛

But the xbox is more expensive, so I guess it’s got that going for it… still want one though 🙂
