    PS4 early specs 'more powerful' than Xbox 720, claims source

    PlayStation 4's early technical specifications are looking "more powerful" than those of Microsoft's next-generation Xbox targets, according to PSM3's development sources.
    Reporting via a PS4 news special in its latest issue, which hits news stands on Wednesday, January 11, the mag cites sources suggesting that Microsoft's machine will beat Sony's to market "if only by months". PSM3's sister mag, Xbox World, publishes a similar source-digging next-gen special in its issue out on the same day, claiming that the next Xbox will ship in late 2013 with a PowerPC-based processor from IBM and 'Kinect 2.0' out of the box.
    The latter matches up with previous reports, and according to Xbox World it's one reason PS4's looking like it might outperform 360's successor in the processing department.
    With its next console Microsoft is looking to focus on "utility and innovation," the report says.
    The latest rumour reports arrive hours after MCV's claims that both PS4 and Xbox 720 will be shown at this year's E3.
    According to the trade mag, Sony and Microsoft have both indicated to third-parties that they'll be showing off their next-generation machines at the Los Angeles show, spoiling Nintendo's Wii U re-reveal in the process.
    Read the full PS4 story in PSM3, on sale 11 January, where you'll also find a world-first review of Soulcalibur V, an in-depth look at Metal Gear Rising Revengeance, plus 20 essential tips on how to squeeze more from your PS3.
    For insider knowledge on the next Xbox, read the complete story in Xbox World, where there's also an exclusive hands on with Mass Effect 3's single player campaign and an epic feature on the most beautiful, hard-to-find places in Skyrim. It's on sale 11 January.

    Yeah, I believe that. I think MS will focus more on social networking, multimedia and Kinect while Sony will put more focus on amazing core games. Next gen will repeat this gen with the Playstation hardware being more powerful imo.

    Sounds plausible, but I'll wait until the specs are revealed.

    This. I think both companies have shown what their philosophies are, and I don't see that changing. 720 will be your all in one tv box, streaming media, kinect games and predominantly 3rd party games. PS4 will be the core gaming machine, housing games from Sonys 1st party army with Vita and Move intergration.

    It would only matter if it is significantly more powerful. Just "a bit" is pretty much the same as this gen, meaning the same outcome: third party studios drag the PS4 version down to Nextbox's level, and in many cases making an inferior product due to bad ports. If the Nextbox does indeed release first expect a copy/paste of this gen, which is exactly what MS want.

    I guess we will have to wait and see. I see both consoles bringing a great core experience with the improved specs. I do see xbox 360 leading the way into next gen.

    Rumor: PS4 more powerful than next Xbox

    U.K. publication PSM3 has claimed that early tech specs for Sony’s as yet unannounced PlayStation 4 are looking a little meatier than Microsoft’s next-generation effort.

    The magazine claims that early signs point to Sony’s new console being “a bit more powerful” than the new Xbox.

    Furthermore, the mag also says that Xbox 720 will likely beat PS4 to market, but only by a few months.

    Gossip on next-generation platforms has kicked up a notch this week, with MCV reporting earlier today that Sony and Microsoft are gearing up for an E3 reveal for their new machines.

    Sony’s remaining tight-lipped on any plans for PS4 however, with Shuhei Yoshida, head of Sony Worldwide Studios, insisting the company is still very much excited by future prospects on PS3.

    Source PSM3 Magazine
    http://www.psu.com/Rumor--PS4s-early...a014030-p0.php

    The consoles are rumored to be revealed at E3 this year.
    According to MCV, successors to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 are to be unveiled at this year’s E3 expo in June.

    The site claims that both Sony and Microsoft are looking to lift the wraps off their next-generation consoles at the Los Angeles bash, potentially stealing much of the limelight from Nintendo's Wii U, which will be out in full force.

    Various sources in recent months have pointed to an E3 reveal for the new Xbox console, with a release supposedly due next year.

    However, Sony has continually brushed off speculation regarding a new platform, though last year reports claimed that a number of first-party companies had begun working on PS4 software.

    Sony has pledged to support PS3 for at least a decade, with the console turning five in the U.S. and Japan last November. It’s also focused on PlayStation Vita, which hit Japan last month and is due out in western regions on February 22.

    Stay tuned.

    I think the extra power (however little it was) in the ps3 really helped in the final years of the consoles. We have seen truly amazing games from a graphical standpoint. If the rumor is true, then I'm assuming MS was too busy integrating casual features to worry about 'power'.

    if sony learn their lesson from ps2 and ps3, and make ps4 more friendly for developers - extra power is absolutely worth it, but if not. we will be in same situation with 3rd party developers

    Pretty much every analyst is speculating at this point,I can't see a PS4 reveal this year though, at least not at E3, TGS if it is.

    I agree. The last thing they need is to be forced to show their hand by MS, which is what MS really wants. I expect the 360 to be be much further along in development than the next PS4 at this point.

    I think if either reveal anything at E3, it will be from being "forced" by Nintendo and their full reveal of the Wii-U

    But I get why you said that, because MS is leading us into next gen, amirite

    Yes...I do think that Nin is forcing them to a certain point. I also believe that the next 360 will have the most improvements compared to the other two.

    i can't imagine how an under powered wii-u would force Sony or MS to reveal a new console, just as last e3 never forced Sony or MS to reveal anything.

    I think it is a fair assessment of MS's advancement. They were the most conservative this gen, it stands to reason they might go a little overboard on the nextbox. Or they might keep tried and true and just release more power under the hood and not try to reinvent the wheel.

    Who knows?

    Like this article, this is all a guessing game
