Epic’s Mark Rein: Xbox One and PS4 Are Not a Generation Ahead of PC

Posted on May 28, 2013 AT 04:33am

Epic’s Mark Rein has countered EA’s chief technical officer Rajat Teneja’s claims by stating that the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are in fact not a generation more powerful than high-end PCs, a conclusion most of you had already reached.

Just looking at the official specifications most people had already decided that there was no chance of it being a whole generation between next generation consoles and high-end PCs. You can read a full rundown of Teneja’s claims here.

While some of the consoles’ specifications are impressive, their static nature can’t really match the rapid development of the PC market, within a year the PC will most likely have moved back in front–such is the nature of the beast.
