The lights are on
See how the Xbox console hardware has evolved across three generations with this handy chart.
[Correction: The chart originally listed the Xbox One's RAM as GDDR3, not DDR3. Additionally, the original chart omitted the HDMI output and 7.1 Surround capabilities of the Xbox One. Game Informer regrets the error.]
Microsoft says that the Xbox One is roughly eight times as powerful as the Xbox 360 at the end of the day. In addition, the ramifications of Microsoft's cloud computing initiative could be significant. The company has stated that consoles will be able to offload calculations to cloud processors, which could be significant if developers find it useful to take advantage of.
* The Xbox One's Wi-Fi Direct capabilities allow it to use its multiple 802.11n Wi-Fi radios to communicate simultaneously with both a standard wireless network and directly with other Wi-Fi devices.

i think Ps4 might have one upped ya on audio output.
I was hoping for a pie chart ;(
I have no idea what any of this means. :/
So we're looking pretty close to the ps4, but im going to have to give the slight advantage to sony on this one.
so nice I had to say it twice ! lol
wait. why is there only HDMI video output? are they asuming everyone owns a HD tv? sounds like *** PEOPLE WITHOUT ALOT OF CASH to me.
Pretty nice increase in stuff.
Might as well be:
PS4 has more power than this.
Oooh. Could you do the same for playstation?
I reiterate that if Microsoft's console is only 8 times more powerful than its predecessor, than games will be scalable to Wii U given it's about 2.5 times more powerful.
