Xbox One will not be getting hardware upgrades like the PS4

A little while ago, Phil Spencer Chief of the Xbox threw away the thought of an Xbox One mid-generation hardware update and the response was fairly messed. Since that time, Microsoft company happens to be heading back on that concept, with Phil Spencer now announcing that there won’t be an Xbox 1.5, rather the organization wants to provide ‘substantial’ updates, as opposed to smaller, incremental ones like the Sony’s PlayStation 4.

At Microsoft’s Build Conference very last week, Phil Spencer was hard pressed on rumors encircling Sony’s PS4K/PS4.5, that will be a mid-generation hardware improve for the PlayStation as per few rumours. Nevertheless , we won’t be reading this come to with Xbox apparently:

“I don’t know anything about any of the PS4K rumours that are out there,but I can understand other teams’ motivations to do that. For us, our box is doing well. It performs, it’s reliable, the servers are doing well. If we’re going to go forward with anything, like I said, I want it to be a really substantial change for people – an upgrade.”

Therefore it seems to be Microsoft is focused on the hardware it opted for this generation, though Sony may wind up providing a far more efficient gaming console to assist Virtual Reality functions.

Sony PS4 Hardware Specifications:

  • AMD 8-core Jaguar CPU
  • Comparable to Radeon HD 7000-series, 8GB GDDR5 RAM

Xbox One Hardware Specifications:

  • AMD 8-core Jaguar CPU
  • Comparable to Radeon HD 7000-series, 8GB DDR3 RAM and 32MB eSRAM

As you can see in the above specs the PS4 is even without the upgrade is faster than the Microsoft’s Xbox one especially on the graphics processing unit front. What do you think how will the Microsoft company stack up with their current strategy plan? Let us know in the comments below.
