Resident Evil creator states that Xbox One and PS4 are more or less the same

Not much to separate the PS4 and Xbox One in the hardware stakes

Tango Gameworks boss Shinji Mikami has been lamenting the need to make two different next-gen console versions of The Evil Within as he believes that the Xbox One and the PS4 are virtually identical pieces of hardware.

Mikami-san believes that there is “no real difference” between the two consoles which are both built around off-the-shelf PC components.

He said, “We only need one console. Why do I have to make two versions of a game? And when Xbox One was first announced it had lower specs than PS4, but now they’re almost identical. So either will do.” Resident Evil creator states that Xbox One and PS4 are more or less the same

Given that the hardware is more-or-less the same inside the Xbox One and the PS4 it makes it more difficult to understand the rumours the developers are having trouble getting games that run at 30fps in 1080p on the PS4 to run as smoothly at any higher than 900p on the Xbox One.
