Makes me wonder, who at MS thought this was a good idea?
THIS is why we tend to see poor console ports or no console ports at all and why it's a GREAT thing the PS4 is using an x86 architecture, meaning at least Playstation exclusive games will be available for the PC and NOT be a port, actually just developed on the PC and optimized for the PS4.
The clouds parted and the Angels sing. So Sony is going to base thier next console on the PC platform? Wow, thats a game changer for sure!
Go google big endian vs little endian for detail explanation (and why prior to Apple going intel they couldn't run anyone's software whatosever)
There is a term I haven't heard in a long, long time.
is a great and simplified explenation.
Why I didn't know thee PS4 was going x86? /scratches head
