[Update] Penello has since taken to NeoGAF to clarify the statements he made last week. Here's what he had to say:
I appreciate those who understand the point I was trying to get across. It’s always hard, after sitting doing interviews all day, and you’re trying to have an engaging conversation with someone, and words get pulled out our the tone what you’re trying to say didn’t come out how you meant it.
[Original] Xbox One exec Albert Penello believes that Sony's hardware advantage with the PlayStation 4 isn't as big of a deal as many are making it out to be, going so far as to say that the disparity between the two consoles is "in some ways meaningless."
"The problem is that Sony decided to go and and publish a bunch of numbers," Penello said in an interview with OXM, emphasizing the fact that it's all about delivering great game experiences. "I feel like our games and experiences are going to be every bit as good, if not better, technically."
Penello went on to discuss Sony's approach, saying, "As a matter of fact, they actually go out and they talk about how proud they are about their off-the-shelf parts. Our guys'll say, we touched every single component in the box and everything there is tweaked for optimum performance."
In the end, the Xbox exec believes that arguing about which console is better based on tech specs is "a pointless argument because people are debating things which they don't know about."
