PS4 / Xbox One War ‘Far From Over’, Microsoft Has Aces Up Their Sleeves – Adrian Chmielarz

Adrian Chmielarz says the next year is going to be very, very interesting.

Posted By | On 17th, Mar. 2014 Under News


Adrian Chmielarz, Creative Director and Co-owner at The Astronauts caused a bit of a storm before the respective releases of the Xbox One and PS4 by stating that the latter was more powerful. Of course, Chmielarz clarified later by saying that weaker hardware didn’t mean worse games and even clarified the entire remark about the PS4 being 50 percent more powerful than the Xbox One.

In an interview with GamingBolt, Chmielarz was asked about the statements, especially with regards to certain games being held back by the Xbox One’s hardware and delivering lower resolutions/frame rates. He stated ,”Yeah, when I said PS4 is 50% faster a lot of people assumed I meant that Xbox One could not end up on top. But Betamax was superior to VHS, and Super Audio CD is superior to MP3 – guess what won? Things are never as simple as you’d think just looking at the specs.”

“The war is very far from over. Anyone with even one eye open can see that Sony is on the roll, with great hardware, great sales, and great attitude. And they’re about to introduce VR into the mix. And there’s going to be Uncharted 4. But trust me, Microsoft has some aces up their sleeves as well, and the next year is going to be very, very interesting.”

This week’s GDC should be pretty interesting given that Microsoft is all set to reveal DX 12 support for the Xbox One. Plus there are reports that they may even demonstrate cloud and how it can apparently make the Xbox One more powerful.

Adrian Chmielarz and his team are currently working on Vanishing of Ethan Carter, which looks awesome by the way. We will have more on the game and from the interview in the coming days.

What are your thoughts on the whole ordeal? Does better hardware make for better games? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

    Yes, am sure they do have something up their sleeves.

    But guess what? Sony will have something up their sleeves too. There’s no need for one company to boast and flex and act like they’re the ONLY ONES with secret announcements stuffed in their sleeves. If Microsoft has 5, Sony may as well have 5 too or 10.

    • Psionicinversion

      the only thing sony has is VR and that will suck

    • Jason Mounce

      You clearly don’t do enough research and are naive and ignorant with the gaming industry as a whole. Do some homework please. GDC and E3 2014 will be huge this year for Sony :/

    • Psionicinversion

      and MS when they detsory the ps4 with there announcements

    • Dakan45

      shh you gonna harm the delusional sonytards.

      Guess what? ps4 cpu is 48 ps2s.

      Nice one sony why not compare it with ps3 cpu?

      Oh thats right its because ps3 cpu is more powerfull than ps4.

      Typical sony lies and overhype.

    • Psionicinversion

    • BroJ

    • Psionicinversion

      nah were not the same hes on a whole other level, was laughing so hard last night about the arguements between him and other ppl its like some people got these links on speed typing or someat.

      PC users are so elite it only takes 2 to stand up to the whole PS4ail crowd!!!

    • BroJ

      Like I said you are helpless.

    • Psionicinversion

    • Jason Mounce

    • datdude

      Well, Microsoft destroying Sony would certainly be a first. From what I’ve seen Microsoft is best at destroying their own product with mixed messaging and red rings. #Truthhurts

    • Psionicinversion

      thats a carefully constructed plan to give the enemy a false sense of security then boom, a unified approach of defense ownage moving to an offensive line to destroy the PS squad

    • datdude


    • joel

      Sony has all there biggest games still not out and aslong as Sony has Naughty Dog they will have the upper hand.

    • Psionicinversion

    • Guest

      Go buy Sony’s VR headset so the NSA can spy on your eyeballs and soul.

  • Los Illuminados
    • You mean the guy that said the PS4 was 50% more powerful? Yeah, I agree. What an idiot.

    • Dakan45

      typical contradicing sony fantards being hypocrites.

      They now bash carmack for noy sucking off sony for their vr system.

      Pathetic really.

    • Their motto is something like “hate everything that’s pro-XO… even if that thing is also pro-PS4″…

      I swear, one day [soon] they’ll probably follow that carrot right off a cliff. XD

    Ow God. Do they have an automatic generator of BS at MS? It must be how the “POWAH OF THE CLOUD!!”” must be used.Comparing two standards with GPUs with the same architecture but different specs.

    BTW The BR format (from Sony) killed the inferior HD-DVD (supported by MS) after all, didn’t it?

    • Dakan45

      silence sony f@ggot.

      You fantards are the worse.

      OH X360 HAS TRIGGERS WHICH ARE G@Y now ps4 has triggers its all great.

      oh sony doesnt make you pay for online haahha, now sony makes you pay for oniine, so its now great.

      Oh pc exlusives suck, now you are all playing them since they are on ps4.

    titanfall is dead already LOL rip xbox, long live ps4

    • Owl

      Fanboys almost make me feel ashamed for owning a PS4. I got a PS4 at launch for Killzone but the community was always tiny. I am one of the top players. The count barely cracked 2000 when it was new and now its barely over 1000 unless its prime time. I wonder how many people are playing Titanfall. I wouldn’t know because I won’t get an XBox One until Halo, but I guarantee its more than Shadow Fall ever had including any time during the launch window. Over 2.1 million sales and its always been a ghost town. TitanFLOP? Not compared to KZ. Oh and 95% of the players are playing 24 person death match SF…the lamest of all playlists with low fps and lag in a mindless clusterphukk. Bunch of noobs playing the game now. Sony fanboys need to stop invading comment boards and trading their games in at GameStop. Help build a stronger gaming community, not a trolling community.

    • Dakan45

      typical idiot titnfalla has high ratins and its played online, shadowfaill is dead.
