    If you think only gigantic nerd gamers visit gaming websites, I don't even know how to respond... You misunderstand the gamer demographic at a fundamental level.

    Actually I'm just a lot smarter than you and understand system specifications. The ps3 has better specs, therefore it is a superior gaming console. You wouldn't say 8 RAM is better than 16 RAM, or you probably don't know what RAM stands for, amiright?

    IGN gets 50 million page views every day, according to worthofweb.com (honestly not sure how accurate that site is though). And according to wikipedia, IGN had 24 million unique visitors per month... and that was in 2005. It's also ranked in the Top 200 most viewed websites by Alexa.

    So yeah, I don't think it's just "elitist gamers" or "super nerds" who visit IGN.

    For two guys who like to point out how much smarter than the other you are, you guys sure argue like children.

    100% agree - they know what they're doing. How many "hard-core gamers" are there that aren't PC users, not a whole lot. How many people have an xbox and play 2K, Madden, Halo, and COD 90% of the time.... almost everybody.

    Yup. What you think people that play video games and have knowledge of computers can't get laid? Welcome to the 21st century homey, nerd is the new cool.

    So explain to me exactly by how much the PS4's RAM configuration is faster than the XBOX One's (if at all) and why? Yes on the surface the GDDR is faster, but without having studied the details I can tell the XBOX One is using a different architecture with an ESRAM cache which is may well be quite competetive.

    Also, as wrong as DW is on a lot of things, he is right that "casual gamers" (which would be nobody in this thread) don't go to IGN or whatever all the gaming sites are called.

    And rememeber 24 million unique visitors, is just 24 million devices/browsers, so they probably have about a third of that as visitors, which is a drop in the ocean of world wide gamers.
