Not to mention that we were still going through that 'untapped potential' phase. When the game finally arrived, everyone was on cloud nine.
going to have to rename this place PS 4 forums.
I found this place back in 05 I think by googling ps3 news

Yeah, Killzone 2 looked amazing. So did 3. And don't even get me started on Uncharted 3 : D
They really make the best looking 360 games look meh. Heck, it makez PC games look meh ;p Cell isn't overrated at all. Considering Cell is a almost 7 year old cpu.
Besides, don't these devkits usually have up to double the ram of the actual console as overhead for dev programs? That means we're talking a good ~2-8 gigs in the final beast.
And as far as the APU thing, I'll be the outlandish one who holds his breadth and hopes that the A10 BASED APU is just that. A 7750 I could see as bare minimum for staying relevant for about 5 years, but here's hoping they've soldered in an opteron 6380 to what will be the flagship radeon 8000 gpu :p

For the record, I've only just realised the specs for the next Xbox have been under our nose for some time....
Read the specs under "Stationary computing device".....
Dual power 7 CPU with 6 cores each @ 3.1 (thats a 12 core machine)
Custom GPU capable of SM 5.0 @ 825mhz
5 gb main memory
1.2 gb of video memory.
Yeah, this pic had been out some quite a while and now its all over the news today.
Nothing new people
Looks like the next Xbox is going down the Wii U route with a seperate surface tablet however, or it could be a seperate device completly.
Edit: BTW I believe, these specs are pretty darn close, if not the entire truth as to what MS is doing, they seem fairly legit.
Why on earth would they want to go with a 10k SCSI hard drive instead of a SATA III SSD?!
Yeah, I doubt it will use SCSI drives. Probably devkit specs as Mynd said.
Looks to me like the nextbox may be more powerful than PS4. Unless SONY brings in a separate GPU. But I'm not too familiar with those specs and what they represent so I could be wrong.
A10 APU's will (for a console) likely have 67xx-68xx series GPUs right? an APU seems woefully underpowered when compared :???:
assuming the PS4 were to have a stand alone GPU: could the APU be crossfired with a stand alone 6xxx series GPU?
Here's the thing, how does MS hope to make their product competitively priced if they are throwing so much cash around on gimmicks (surface and kinect 2).
Sony is laser focused on the console alone, so I'm hopeful the ps4 will be better priced/spec'd
Sony PlayStation 4 Rumors Suggests Christmas 2013 Release Datehttp://www.overclockersclub.com/news/33082/Quote:
Sony's next PlayStation console codenamed "Orbis" is slated for a holiday 2013 release, according to sources cited by VG247. The Japanese conglomerate has not yet confirmed even the existence of its supposed successor, but rumors have it that Sony could be prepared to launch the PS4 earlier than its closest competition, Microsoft's next Xbox. However, Microsoft also released the Xbox 360 12 months earlier than Sony, so its possible Redmond could replicate that feat. It has recently surfaced that an AMD A10 APU-powered PS4 dev kit were handed out to devs, which were reportedly outfitted with 256 hard disk storage, a Blu-ray drive along with 8GB/16GB RAM. The PS4 is in for some tough times when it does get released, as the gaming landscape has changed considerably since the PS3's launch with the advent of more people embracing mobile gaming.
**** mobile gaming. that's just for the mass market. ps3/xbox has never been about mass market, it's been about gamers.
