I love this argument, I really do, because it shows a clear lack of information and knowledge about how hardware actually works. Hardware wise, the systems are 99% identical.
You know why the PS4 has a slight edge in visuals and framerate, but takes longer to load and is a bit slower at everything else? Because ALL of its RAM is VRAM, it's video ram that is better used at graphical processing. It's why PCs still use normal ram and VRAM. This is also why the XBO has the edge in multitasking functionality, it's using the proper ram for it.
And clearly, you also do not own an XBO, or you wouldn't be complaining about the kinect. Yeah, the kinect on the 360 was horrid, but the functionality and ease of use and pretty dang good accuracy on the 2.0 is quite good. I'll take the functionality over a 100 dollar cheaper system with nothing I want to play.
Even still, neither system holds a candle to my PC when it comes to performance, so why do I even have an XBO? 3 exclusive series, that's it.
Again, fan boys on both sides need to stfu about specs when the majority of them clearly have no idea how the hardware even works. A bigger number doesn't always mean better...
