Phil Spencer: Xbox One 10 Times More Powerful Than Xbox 360, Cloud Gives More
The Xbox One PR machine, ladies and gentlemen.
The Microsoft Xbox One PR nightmare continues. While Microsoft Games Studio head Phil Spencer proclaimed that the Xbox One was three times more powerful the Xbox 360 last night on Jimmy Fallon, it caused some confusion. After all, didn’t Microsoft mention not too long ago that it was equal to the power of ten Xbox 360 consoles?
Well, Spencer took to clarifying this on Twitter.
So the Xbox One is actually eight times more powerful the Xbox 360? This is where things just go downhill as Spencer then clarifies that it’s actually 10 times more powerful and “for purely local compute functions closer to 10x + Cloud”.
But it is confirmed to be ten times more powerful. For now, that is.
It’s already been pointed out that Microsoft is completely lost with its PR for the Xbox One, with key issues like the concurrent usage under the Family Policy unknown, privacy issues, Don Mattrick and many other problems. The Head of Microsoft Games Studio not even knowing what’s what only compounds the problem further. Stay tuned for more.
