Calm down everyone, psionicinversion's intentions were in the right place. Believe it or not this topic is actually one of the first things I suggested to the staff when I was made moderator. Not because I want to see flame/troll bait comments or fighting, but to contain the discussion in one topic and make it a valuable discussion. Back in November it was the height of PS4 vs X1 tech specs leading up to launch, so every topic descended into the usual bickering. We decided it would be too difficult to "enforce" everyone to use the one topic for the discussion in the end, but I'm glad psionicinversion made it.
Unfortunately there a lot of downsides to the discussion at the same time and that is because as consumers we simply don't have the access to the hardware and diagnosis of their capabilities. Brendeth really said it best in that unless you work at a studio you can't offer the proper insight needed and we can only go off what developers tell the press or during developer panels. It won't be until the end of the generation when we finally get a better understanding of the hardware from the consumer side and it's far too early in the generation for that.
That said, please keep the conversation alive if you have something valuable to add and if you can't offer anything construtive to the discussion, please refrain from posting/derailing it.
