When the Xbox One and Playstation 4 launched two years ago (gosh, has it really been that long?!), Microsoft eked out an early “win” over its rival console by slimming down the number of cores used by the Kinect camera add-on and the operating system, bringing the total cores used by the system from three to one, leaving the rest of the processor to be chewed up by games. While Kinect still requires a dedicated core when you’ve plugged it in, this arrangement hasn’t been detrimental to performance. It has now been rumored that Sony has made the same move with the PS4, slimming down the OS requirements to only require one CPU core, allowing the others to be dedicated to running games on the system.
