Sony: Few developers will use the full potential of Xbox One X

Microsoft introduced Xbox One X as the most powerful console on the market today and the only one that will give us a real 4K gaming experience. Not surprisingly, the company based its advertising campaign on showing us the potential of the console and detailed its technical specifications. Recently, Phil Spencer stated that its new system does not seek to compete with PlayStation 4 Pro, as the Sony console is closer to Xbox One S in terms of potential and target audience.


Faced with the fact that the Xbox One X infrastructure exceeds that of the PlayStation 4 Pro, Jim Ryan, global sales manager for PlayStation, gave his point of view. Ryan said that few developers will be able to take advantage of the extra potential of the new Microsoft console.

To explain his point of view, he went back to the generation of PlayStation 3: “What I would do is cast our minds back to the PS3 generation, where we had on paper more impressive specifications than our competition, and in some areas by quite a considerable margin. What happened was that developers, maybe at the behest of publishers, developed up to the lowest common denominator and stopped there. And in very few cases took advantage of the additional horsepower of the PS3.”

Jim Ryan also mentioned that he may be wrong, because the story does not always repeat itself and added: “But if you’re a publisher of video games, that is a perfectly commercially rational approach for you to take. Because you only do one set of work,” Ryan finished.

It will be until next November 7 when we will know if developers can take advantage of the potential of Xbox One X, which will hit the market costing at $499 USD.

    Anyone with half a brain doesn’t believe a word Sony says.
    No one wants old games…lie
    No crossplay excuse…lie

    Is this the full potential of the PS4 pro ?

    No true 4k games (some as low as 720p on the pro with no PC textures or assets), no backwards compatibility now or in the future, a hypocritical lying company that calls its own PSnow service worthless instead of offering back compat, a $500 PSVR tech demo lie, inferior multiplats, no upgrade to shader model 6 textures, inferior online service, no improvements on 1080p TVs, no EA access, gimped mod support, no 4k 60fps game capture, no dedicated servers, no game pass downloading service, no 4k bluray, no digital refunds….and NO MULTIPLAYER GAMES as good as Xbox’s.

      Sounds like your jealous of PS4! Microsoft flip flops when something doesn’t work for them. Speaking of lies the power of the cloud you should never need a new console!

      True 4K…lie

      ESRAM…lie
      Kinect….lie

      And no true 4k games on Pro?!

      All say hi, and PSNow is basically backwards compatibility for those that want it and it was out way before MS’s not even a quarter of their 360 games BC. MS has no VR solution whatsoever! can easily do SM6 textures through their API, superior multiplats, superior online services, supersampling on 1080p tv, EA Access is useless and the same few games that have been there since the beginning, no thanks! And absolutely does have game servers, game pass is pointless and just downright desperate. You don’t need 6k bluray and is a unneccesary expense cuz you are paying for it, and much better multiplayer games than Xbox’s very few exclusives.

        None of those games are Native 4k..

    • MS

      Wow, talk about a mi*erable and ha*eful little fanboy.

  • Rafoca

    He basically confirmed parity does exist. That’s l*me

    • Guest

      Its always existed and you can thank 3rd party devs/pubs for it.

      • Rafoca

        that sux, really. Money is the cancer of everything

    Sony exec:
    “we don’t think the performance potential of the XBOX One X will be utilised..
    I mean, look how the PS4Pro turned out”

    • Guest

      Which is exactly the same way the 1x is going to turn out, only worst, cuz even less people will buy it, there by getting even less support.

      • heavenshitman1

        With little doubt, absolutely correct. Mind you the performance boost of XOX should mean even with equivalent programming the end result will still be better load times and frame rates.
        But honestly, it feels a hopeless effort for M’soft. If only they just made it a new console entirely (perhaps with a properly improved CPU) new stellar games coulda been built for it.

        But on the point of bigger and better games, these new high end consoles are running into another massive road block. Storage. 4K games are happily gonna smash the 100GB mark. even with 2TB drives you might get say a dozen games on it, imagine digital downloads, most ppl would be screwed trying to get that through their networks.
        And then there’s load times, Unless you invest in some very speccy SSDs etc… Games of that magnitude loading off of platter drives and opticals is probably gonna suck hardcore. I remember the irritation of playing Fallout 4 on an SSD, 10 sec load times every building you walked in and out of….

    LOL what a joke of a comment. Nobody took advantage of the PS3 because it was h*ll to develop for compared to the Xbox 360, this is not the case for Xbox One X nor has it been for any Xbox Console for the most part.
