Now that Sony has unveiled the PlayStation 4 specs, the ball is squarely in Microsoft’s court. Many have speculated what kind of console Microsoft is working on, but most expect the hardware specs to be similar to the PlayStation 4.
Now it appears that the Xbox 720 will in fact be similar to the PlayStation 4. A senior developer at publisher Ubisoft recently revealed that the Xbox 720 will be “aligned with what Sony announced”. Not just similar in terms of hardware architecture, but in features as well. The developer says that just like Sony, Microsoft will focus on social, on streaming, etc.
Earlier today developer Epic, makers of the Unreal Engine 4, praised the PlayStation 4, saying that it’s “the perfect gaming PC“. Microsoft is rumored to announce the Xbox 720 at E3 this year. According to latest reports, the company is very confident in the Xbox 720, and has no problems with Sony taking the spotlight until E3.
