Microsoft's Xbox One Is Far Weaker Than Sony's PlayStation 4, According to This Legendary Game Creator

Microsoft's (NASDAQ: MSFT  ) Xbox One had a strong debut, selling millions in its first month on the market. But with the holiday rush over, sales have slowed to a crawl: Last month, rival Sony's (NYSE: SNE  ) PlayStation 4 outsold Microsoft's console by 2-to-1 in the U.S., and retailers have begun to offer incentives on the Xbox One to move inventory.

While the console race is still in its early stages, Microsoft appears to have its hands full. It's become clear that Sony's machine is more powerful, capable of offering much better-looking games.

Metal Gear Solid creator praises Sony's machine
Hideo Kojima, the creator of the legendary Metal Gear Solid franchise, has been a vocal supporter of Sony's PlayStation 4. Most recently, in an interview with Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu (via DualShockers), Kojima heaped lavish praise on Sony's latest console:

I think, between the home consoles available ... [Sony's] PS4 is the best. It's also excellent for graphics, being able to render 1080p at 60fps with room to spare. Since it does it a little better than other hardware, the image quality of the PS4 is the most beautiful.

Kojima's comments are particularly notable given that his upcoming work, Metal Gear Solid V, will appear on both Sony and Microsoft's consoles. In other words, Kojima is familiar with both machines, and has no reason to be biased.

Of course, Kojima's comments should come as no surprise to anyone who has been following the industry. Over the past few months, a number of third-party games have been found to perform better on Sony's PlayStation 4, able to output graphics at full 1080p HD, rather than the 720p that some of Microsoft's Xbox One titles have been limited to.

More power for less money
Arguably, this gap in graphical power is not necessarily a deal-breaker. In fact, less powerful video game consoles have almost always outsold their more powerful competitors: The Wii outsold both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 despite lacking HD visuals, while Sony's PlayStation 2 outsold both the original Xbox and the GameCube.

But the popularity of these less-powerful machines was largely driven by the price: With lesser technology, weaker consoles have almost always been offered up at cheaper prices, making them easier for consumers to afford.

Not this time. Although the Xbox One isn't as powerful as Sony's PlayStation 4, it's more expensive -- a full $100 (or 25%) more.

Microsoft's advantage
The extra cost is likely due to the inclusion of Kinect 2.0, the motion and voice-controlled sensor sold with every Xbox One. Although the Kinect gives the Xbox One smart TV capabilities Sony's PlayStation 4 could never hope to match, for dedicated video gamers, the Kinect is largely superfluous.

It's hardly surprising that the PlayStation 4 has outsold the Xbox One so far. Dedicated gamers are the sort of consumers most likely to purchase a console following its release: If all you want to do is game, Sony's machine offers better-looking games at a lesser price point -- the choice is obvious.

In the long run, Microsoft may be able to close the gap by offering better exclusives, bolstering its TV capabilities to attract non-gamers, or aggressively cutting the price of its console. For now, Sony is clearly offering gamers the better deal.

    I love all the XBox fanboys rushing here to "defend the XBox honor". You sheep need to figure out several things: 1. this guy doesn't like the XBox. it's a given. You WILL NEVER change his mind. Move the fnck along. 2. XBox (as in every one of the consoles) was always under-powered compared to the competition. It gained a following no different than WoW... it wasn't quality that brought the market. it was mass marketing and media hype. WoW is a $h!7 game but its appeal is to that of the nuggs of the world. 3. Rushing to defend the XBox brand does nothing but show you're a sheep. the only people you will impress with your "passion" are others of similar mind as you and Bill Gates. That's it. plain. Simple. Period. So you can sit around and circle jerk each other and Willy and get off on how much you love the XBrick or you can take this dose of common sense i am shoving in your face like my rocks bouncing off your chin and accept it for truth like you can accept the pin pricks of my bag's stubble from not shaving in a week... and move the fnck along or you can keep on sitting there letting me hit you in the face with more common sense and my stubbly bag and continue to ignore both and continue to b!7ch, whine, moan, groan and complain about how everyone is being a bunch of meanie pooheads by talking not very nice about the P.O.S. console you failtastically chose to purchase. Ultimately, i think both consoles are lacking. But it is what it is.

    I find it interesting to point out that the XBox is essentially a niche device, much like a Nintendo. It would also appear that the only extra your console needs is a blu-ray player. MS has proven that making an all-in-one is not as desirable. Don't get me wrong, I have owned consoles from all three companies, I play on a PS3 and love my Wii U and will probably get a PS4 after a price drop, but I just don't see the point in another XBox for me. And seeing as the XBox has never been profitable for MS, I don't see this being tolerated much longer from stockholders.

    Before I even clicked on the link to this article, I knew who the 'journalist' behind it was. Don't you have anything better to do?

    People who follow the gaming scene already know that the XBox One is not as powerful as the PS4. I hope this doesn't affect competition between the two platforms, since the average gamer doesn't spend much time analyzing pixel counts and such, but sales figures may already point to the public's opinion.

    I am mostly disappointed that there seems to be less competition this generation, as I love video games, regardless of what console they appear on. Less competition usually leads to less innovation (such as with Madden games). Anyhow, I hope this author knows how to write about other topics as one or two a week about this subject is getting old.

    Every console war since the beginning of console wars has had a "weaker" console. They are never exactly the same architecture. But it almost never relates to being the winner or not. Price and game selection are usually the main factors, and Microsoft has some great games coming so they will do just fine.

    But you do know that Kojima has been Sony exclusive for YEARS with the Metal Gear series, right? He definitely has a bias, and to try to say that he doesn't because this new Metal Gear is on both consoles selectively omits the entire history of the Metal Gear series (at least as far back as Metal Gear Solid on the Playstation 1). Not to mention that he is a Japanese developer and the system he is touting is Japanese while the other is not.

    And btw... if you think Sony is doing so much better than Microsoft... just wait until Titanfall hits. I'm thinking sales will sharply increase, and from all the sources I have talked to... that's already happening.

    As someon who works very closely with the video game industry and knows people in it - this article is misguided. Yes the PS4 is more powerful than the Xbox One, but only slightly. Its comparable between the power differences of the xbox 360 and the ps3 (about 8-10%). The reason the Xbox One has hard a hard time getting launch titles at resolutions as high as the PS4 is not due to a a lack of power but the actual architecture of the Xbox one system. Once devs have a better handle on this and better tools at their disposal, the whole 1080p/60fps "gates" will be a thing of the past. just like how ps3 games didn't look quite as good as 360 games at launch even though it had the power. You must also remember too that these launch titles have been in development for years. A long time before the launch. Having a system only be available for a couple months with no install base gives developers little time or desire to start from the ground up on new tools and engines. This will come as the install base grows. This is probably some of the most biased, naive writing about the next gen consoles I have seen yet.

    In consumer electronics for decades there has been a strong trend in both Japan and Korea that consumers highly favor brands from their own country. In fact, both these countries became leaders in consumer electronics starting by their own home market succeeding. Sony is a favorite brand in Japan much like Samsung is in Korea.

    There is not so much to be surprised about and we already know that PS4 has an advantage on gaming rendering performance.

    Microsoft can easily improve the performance (better RAM for example) to match or exceed PS4 without having to wait multiple years for an entirely new platform development. PC games have from the beginning been able to run on all sorts of hardware and there is no great reason why an XBOX could not exist with a lineup of different models having different performance levels ideally including a high-end gamer model with much better than PS4 performance. Why not make an "XBOX One Ultimate" matching what is possible on PC gaming machines?

    I like to look at the incremental values of purchasing any consumer electronics product by the metric of how many percent of improvement of use it represents. Using voice and gesture control to operate cable box functionality means you can save a few seconds for every hour of watching broadcast type TV. It's not necessarily bad, if it works reliably (which it doesn't), but it represents a tiny fraction of use.

    Gaming on the other hand is about hours of continuous use and that is therefore still the #1 most important use case for a gaming console even when it is trying to make life a bit easier for selecting broadcast content in novel ways.

    Microsoft needs to ensure that Xbox is primarily perceived as a kick ass gaming machine and learn that the "few seconds per day of improved user interface allowing voice and gesture commands to control broadcast TV" isn't much of an incremental value of people's life...seriously speaking.

    Enough said...

    Personal preference is an individual prerogative, but using official position to back said preference is intellectually dishonesty. Only in this generation has the Microsoft console been underplayed by Sony, in the previous two iterations Xbox generally had better visual fidelity. I would say, it's far too early to determine exactly the entire fate of either of the two consoles. Judging by your adolescent male ejaculatory framework, you know a thing or two about jerking off, but you should remember , It's not always the size of the tool, as much as how you use it.

    I have a NES/PS2/360, all of which I love and if I buy another console, and thats a big if; it will be a PS4 because M$ made the same error they made with the phone OS Win8. They decided to cater to a small percent of people at the expense of the overwhelming majority of their customers.

    Most people don't and never will use touchscreens on their desktop computer. It's just not ergonomically efficient for those devices. By the same token, most people buy consoles to play games, not to watch TV or movies. No one is rushing to buy XB1's to watch the telly.

    Unlike the PS3 which was a relatively cheap Blueray even at $600 for it's time compared to the stand alone models and therefore a legit reason why a non gamer to buy a console; the XB1 doesn't have that kind of hook. People don't buy consoles to watch TV or movies. People buy console first and foremost to game. No amount of PR is going to convince people to buy a XB1 just for media.

    M$ 's focus on media at the expense of gaming is an expensive mistake. It's similar to the mistake Nintendo made with the WiiU. A console that wasn't a next gen console and then being so insular they couldn't get anyone to make games for it.

    BTW Mr. author there are different communities of gamers, something you don't seem to grasp. You have the casual gamers on their stupid phones and tablets. You have the Nintendo crowd, then you have the hard core gamers on the PC/PS3/360/ and now PS4/XB1. Gamers are not one monolithic group. They have various tastes and genre preferences .

    As someone who is in it for the games, platform means very little to me. I'm about the games first and everything else is second. I think besides the alienating and condescending comments made toward xbox fans and gamers by that full-of-himself XBOX ONE rep prior to release, the XBOX ONE is trying too hard to be an all-in-one machine that does much more than just play games. Unfortunately, all the extra stuff that is included such as services for watching movies, tv shows, music, social media, and other tid bits, can be done with things that most people already own, such as a PC, laptop, tablets, and smart phones, and 3 out of 4 of those are portable and mobile, giving a great advantage over XBOX ONE. I really think that Microsoft made a mistake when they emphasized non-gaming applications on their console when really the only thing that console gamers wanted is something that plays games great and can be used with friends via couch parties or internet sessions.

    But this generation is still very young and things can still improve and change for all consoles.
