EA Man Claims Xbox One and PS4 are a Whole "Generation" Ahead of PC

By Gary Cutlack on at

Well that's one way of putting the PC Sim City mess behind you. The aggressive posturing about the power of the next-generation of home consoles comes from EA man Rajat Taneja, the game giant's Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, who says Xbox One and PS4 are "a generation ahead" of the best gaming PCs.

It's a bit of a controversial claim from the EA man, as most PC gaming enthusiasts are actually a bit bewildered by the fact that PS4 and Xbox One seemingly offering little more than a relatively high-end PC and graphics card spec sheet with the maker's own fancy OS and services laid over the top.

In terms of a comparison between today's home consoles, Taneja said: "Our benchmarks on just the video and audio performance are 8-10 times superior to the current gen," which sounds like EA's trying to get across the gaming power message that Microsoft ignored in favour of boasting about its amazing new interactive TV remote control.
