Mark Rein "calls bullshit" on EA’s PC vs next-gen consoles claim

Epic boss Mark Rein has shouted down recent comments from EA regarding the technological merit of next-gen consoles.

Last week EA’s executive VP and CTO Rajat Taneja stated that: Both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 have adopted electronics and an integrated systems-on-a-chip architecture that unleashes magnitudes more compute and graphics power than the current generation of consoles.

These architectures are a generation ahead of the highest end PC on the market and their unique design of the hardware, the underlying operating system and the live service layer create one of the most compelling platforms to reimagine game mechanics.”

However, as spotted by CVG Rein took to Twitter to challenge these accusations.

No they’re not. I call bullshit on this one,” he asserted. "The article said ‘highest-end PCs currently available’ which isn’t even close to true, it’s miles away from true.

"They are ‘architecturally’ more advanced but performance levels aren’t as good. Maybe that’s what he meant?"
