Microsoft recently unveiled the supremely powerful Xbox Scorpio which supports native 4K gaming at sixty frames per second and has a six Tflops graphics unit. The PlayStation Neo however only has 4 Tflops of combined power which is significantly lower than what Microsoft's console contains. While beforehand Sony's narrative was that "power and resolution" was the end-all of gaming, Shawn Layden now says the exact opposite. According to Furious Fanboys who so delicately put it, "In an interview with Time...Sony is aware of this and Sony's Shawn Layden tries to deflect the narrative away from console power."

During the interview Layden said, "Is that going to be the end-all, be-all of the gaming experience? No. I think more than anything else today, we're seeing the power of narrative move the gaming business forward more than ever before." I could go on and say how hypocritical this is but I won't. Instead, I think Furious Fanboys summarized this perfectly.

In their article they added, "This is pretty hilarious as over the past three years all gamers have heard is how much more powerful the PlayStation 4 is over the Xbox One. Now that the tables have turned, and Microsoft has a Xbox One that will be more powerful than the new PlayStation 4, Sony is talking more about game narrative than hardware power." If you're going to bash a company over power at least have the spine to stick by those statements when the tables turn.
