DICE comments on PS4 vs Xbox One Comparison, says PC is Always Better

DICE in a recent issue of GameInformer magazine has commented on one of the hottest gaming issue on internet, comparison between "PS4 and Xbox One" RAM memory and the amount of memory allocated especially for games.

Battlefield 4GameInformer asked DICE's Karl Magnus: "People have made a lot about the difference between the PlayStation 4 having 8GB of GDDR5 RAM versus the 5GB of DDR3 RAM allotted toward the gaming partition on the Xbox One. Do you see that as an advantage for the PlayStation 4, or is that overblown?"

To this Karl replied (In GameInformer Issue 244): "More memory or more CPU or GPU power - whatever kind of power we get out of a machine - more is always better, especially for the kind of games that we build."

"We have a long heritage of PC, and PC is a platform that has been scaled very well over the years. Naturally we’re very excited now seeing consoles that actually close in on what the PCs of today can do - even though it won’t take long before the PCs can do even more."

The above statement of Karl Magnus simple means for Battlefield 4 PC>PS4>Xbox One.

Not necessarily. Think about it, you have to have a computer anyway right? Whether it's a laptop or a desktop, a PC or a Mac, you need to have a working computer in this day in age. So you're already going to spend $400-$600 on that REGARDLESS of any gaming interest. Then if you add on what you would spend on a console on release day ($400-$500), you're looking at $800-$1100(Which will buy you a decent gaming desktop) So, if you're already going to be spending money on a computer (which, once again, you basically have to own a computer), you have to factor that out of the cost of PC gaming, which leaves you with the fact that buying a gaming PC is really the same price as buying a console. Then. when you tack on the fact that there isn't a monthly fee to play online, AND that games are usually cheaper due to sales, PC gaming is actually less expensive than console gaming. That being said, I enjoy both PC and console gaming. But because I have less money to spend, I go PC.

Sony has said that out of the 8gb of memory 1gb is reserve for OS. So it should be 7GB vs 5GB

The PS4 haS 8 gb. of Gddr5 memory and Xbone has 8 GB of memory, but 3 GB. of memory are reserved for MS. three operating systems inside Xbone, leaving 5 GB memory for xbone gaming.

Simplify it for him, the PS4 has 9 GB of total Memmory. And all 9 of them are 3X faster than Xbone.

The ps4 only has 8gb of ram, they are only allowing devs 4gbs at the moment, 1gb for the OS. They are unsure of how much more they will allows for the devs but what ever they allow to the devs they can not get back. They will want to use some of that ram for updates to OS, app usage, and multitasking. They will probably never use more then 6gb for games and I see no reason for them to at 1080p gaming.

Battlefield 4 PC>PS4>Xbox One. BF4 is not even PC lead platform. It's probably still old gen consoles X360 or PS3. DICE are a bunch of sellouts.

How are they sellouts? A PC will always be able to do more than a console because it is far more flexible. The problem for the PC is it's flexibility because having to account for the various options means less time can be spent in polishing a game.

Could not have rolled my eyes any harder at the "conclusion" being drawn from a Dice statement. Lets look at their track record shall we? The have produced only marginally better games on PC when compared to the console version when for years the PC version could have achieved much more than what they actually delivered. Also, despite the a-typical set-up for the PS3, it has the potential of performing certain tasks better than the 360 ever could though Dice never took advantage of this, ever. Yeah, the PS4 and One will get the exact same game barring that the One might get better servers in the US. Yeah, the One is a flawed product but trying to point to things like this is a joke.

why in the world are you putting words in his mouth. He did not say PS4 IS GREATER THAN XBOX ONE. he said "More memory or more CPU or GPU power - whatever kind of power we get out of a machine - more is always better, especially for the kind of games that we build." Quit going off of rumored specs, Ms has not released it's specs details yet.THE PUBLIC AND MOST DEVS DO NOT KNOW XBOX ONE FINAL SPECS As crazy as this sounds, think about how only TWO first party DEVS games at E3 had games running on XB1 hardware KI 3 overseen by Rare's Ken Lobb and Forza 5 from Turn 10 who actually helped design the machine.

You are taking his words out of context...of course more is better for a dev.. if you ever look on BF3, i cant think of a guy where max mem is over 5 gig. And with your logic every ps3 game should look better then every 360 game

- PC will have the best graphics. - PS4 Will have graphics and performance better than XONE, and cool features like can be played on PSVITA and share vídeos etc... - XONE will have poor graphics and performance, but will have some gimmicks with kinect. Ah, and obvious, you will can play BF4 and wath TV,TV,TV at the same time.

Each console has there strengths and those strengths will give it an edge that will allow graphics, gameplay and make the entire experience similar on each console. The PC will not be that far ahead because there is far too many PC options that you have to allow for when coding. Not everyone will have same graphics card, memory configuration, operating system, etc. If they did they would be a console.
