Im not an expert in this :D just run the games perfectly :D
can i still game if the system is offline?
I'm confused, didn't he say PS4?
I just notice that bit though because it be odd that PS3 has the processing power for 7.1 audio but the CPU's in the Durango & PS4 don't
Unless I read it wrong but I expect both to match PS3 in sound capabilities.

First of all the 3gb for OS as well as 2 cores has not been confirmed and to my understanding, in addition to that Kinect 2 it will have it's own dedicated chip this time around.
That could be true. I did read something about it having it's own processor.
The report added that a "dedicated processor", improved microphone, and enhanced RGB cam means that 'Kinect 2' will allow for "four players, sitting or standing" as well as sophisticated technology that can register props such as baseball bats.
I personally think that there are a lot of people going off raw data without the details and drawing the wrong conclusions. ESRAM and Virtual memory texturing, we dont know what the advantages would be. There were so many that had the TFLOP specs as an advantage, and as always, it is nothing but a number in light theoretic limits on each card. The ROP advantage? Gone.
You could say that dedicating two cores is a lot, but we neither know just how much more powerful they are compared to normal Jaguar cores and whether or not that will bridge the gap or if it offers bigger benefits. The amount of people that have had inside info but have had issues interpreting them is mindblowingly awful, even SuperDAE who in part calculated efficiency in raw terms by compute units or DF who said that the DME's were there to aid the CPU and not the GPU.
As for me, i think that the systems come out even or similar at the end of the day, that is one thing i have always wanted. But the amount of people who took a stand and are now trying to justify it is shocking, even the blog post that X2 posted that was trashed in certain segments of this forum now looks credible in terms of the VGleaks data and what some insiders are claiming.
For me, the final numbers and how it all adds up for each console will give a clear picture, but as for now, there is a lot of fearmongering going on either side on a lot of forums and discussion boards.......best advice i have seen is that from mynd when he stated that it isnt the individual pieces, but how it is all put together. This gen, more power wasnt important in light of better efficiency and better tools.
Perhaps with the nextbox we'll actually get games back on the console, instead of having a Kinect Box forced on us again.
^Yep. MS stopped making new i.ps because they were flopping and focused on 4 successful titles and kinect when we're talking big budget exclusives. 2 release a year on top of all that kinect stuff.
I wish I could find that interview again where MS speaks on what I wrote above.
lol but they will have games! maybe not as many as sony but they will and thats a fact. MS is not that stupid, havent they been beefing up there first party dev houses? maybe theyre prepping for kinect or AAA games who knows
