I love this part of that link.

The hardware and services of the PS4 and Xbox 720 will likely continue to compete neck to neck, distinguishing themselves only through minor differences.
A few months ago, a couple developers leaked out some specs of both the PS4 and the Xbox 720. At first they was just taken as rumors but after the press conference by Sony it was shown that these "rumors" about the PS4 hardware was actually true. If these same sources are also correct about the hardware of the Xbox 720, then the hardware of the Xbox will be quite inferior to the PS4 and the performance differences between the two systems will be quite noticeable. Especially if Microsoft continues with their plan on installing Windows 8 on the Xbox and allocating half of the consoles ram to only being able to be used by the operating system. This would only allow the Xbox to have 4 gigs of DDR3 ram for games vs PS4's 8 gigs of GDDR5 (which is superior type of ram to start with).
