Actually it might. A decent amount of those games he listed from the PS3 run at a slightly higher resolution then 360 games. Somebody took the time to figure out the native resolution of most games on each system here. The games that do run at a similar resolution on the 360 also sometimes come with two disks (Halo 4).
I think it is crazy to say developers will not benefit from larger disk capacity.
Errr. size on disk has no relevance to what resolution the game runs at, in fact chances are a game with smaller disk size would in fact run at higher resolution on the console, and last I checked more games ran at high er res on the 360 than the PS3, especially multi platform games.
that argument makes no sense at all.
The main point is that despite the larger disk size, the current gen consoles, and especially the PS3 with it's lower graphics memory, didn't have enough memory to make use of high res assets in any case so the only games that ACTUALLY made use of the disks were games with high res pre rendered FMV's.
No one. We're all speculating on leaked information. However, it is more than that. That is what you have right now when you connect your Xbox to the Internet. Let us be real, the discussion about always on being "required" is based around presumed DRM preventing use of use games. Therefore, you must be connected to play said games. If that is the case, and PS4 does not do this, I will go PS4 for that and other reasons. At least that's what I feel. When it comes down to it I don't know if I can let go of the Xbox Controller or Achievements. The Xbox controller is like the UI in Windows OS. It can make or break you. In this case, not having it, could be a deal breaker regardless.
As I've said before. MS will ONLY do used games lockout/always on "DRM"(It's not DRM) IF one of two cases apply
1: Sony does it as well (do not that Sony has not denied their console will require always on, or that it won't block used games, they merely said it "can" play used games)
2: EA (they're the only ones big enough and with enough power), gives MS full or minimum 6 month exclusivity as long as they are the only console allowing used sales block and or always online.
in case 1 , it doesn't matter either way, in case 2 MS scores big, massively big, and win the war before it's even started.
The quote below doesn't suggest that you need to be online in order to play a multi- or single-player game. It suggests that the console will never turn off completely if it has power. That will allow for quick startup and background processes to continue while you're not using it (e.g. updates).
It's all about updates and push updates/content.
