Similar specs and huge memory will make development easier, claims tech guru
The capabilities of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are “essentially the same,” says industry legend John Carmack.
Speaking at QuakeCon, Id software's technical wizard admitted he hadn't done serious benchmarking and that he had to keep some details secret due to NDAs, but said the similarity of the systems is overwhelming.
“It's almost amazing how close they are in capabilities, how common they are, and that the capabilities they give are essentially the same,” said Carmack in his annual keynote.
“We can talk about the differences in memory architectures but the bottom line being that they are mulitcore AMD processors with AMD graphics – it's almost weird how close they are.”
Perhaps the biggest difference has been in public perception, and Carmack said he felt much of the controversy surrounding the Xbox One's “always on” used games systems and Kinect 2.0 was “a bit of a witch hunt.”
