    Sony and Microsoft come out swinging in the new year!

    Sony

    Today, Sony announced that the PlayStation®4 has cumulatively sold through more than 18.5 million units worldwide as of January 4, 2015, and that the holiday season retail sales exceeded 4.1 million units globally. PS4 continues to demonstrate the fastest and strongest growth in PlayStation® hardware history.


    More or less rubbing it in the face of Microsoft who have been playing catch up since this generation released and doing so all without tweaking the console specs or overclocking the console before this generation released.

    However, Microsoft has hitback with some news that may force Sony's hand on the matter.


    Microsoft
    Microsoft has given developer access to 50% to 80% of a seventh processing core. Previously, both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 reserved two of eight processing cores strictly for multi-tasking, background tasks, and each console’s operating system.

    However, providing game makers on Xbox One with six and a half or more cores of CPU power doesn’t come without its own headaches. While games might certainly benefit from the added performance, as titles like Assassin’s Creed Unity and Grand Theft Auto 5 are believed to already have done so, the possibility of game-specific and console-related voice commands eating up 50% or more of that seventh core’s usage still a reality.

    Son, enjoy your childhood with my PC as much as you can, because when you grow up those console peasants will drag you into a nasty war of exclusives and processor speeds.

    You're making no sense here, I want to reply but I'm not sure what I'll be replying to exactly.

    Ahh, I see you still have some console fanboy running through your veins.
    Fuck em.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    Microsoft is making a very smart move with the cores. If they could expand more on that I think it would make developers happier to work with them.

    Good for them. Hopefully some members of this forum have poorly invested into buying stock from either of these major companies.

    I don't understand how you can say there is "no point" when you have no idea who the person is or what they do, what if their is a completely legitmate reason to as why they are staying up late?

    I wonder if Sony will every tweak their console to stay competitive.
