    Another Day another 'report'; Orbis Specs

    Kotaku basically has as much credibility as....well, none but what ever. Going to list only the specs. More detailed stuff in the link.
    Orbis Devkit at a glance
    8GB system memory, 2.2GB video memory
    4x Dual-Core AMD64 "Bulldozer" CPU, AMD R10xx Liverpool GPU
    New controller features touch pad
    Can link PSN accounts to controllers, allowing for multiple logins.

    i don't see the need for the kotaku hate. they've named their source, unlike many other sites that have been duped or just trawled through forums. and their source has been pretty legit so far.

    although different (because its talking about a dev kit), i think this rumour is interesting.... now to go read the rest.

    *edit: MUCH better article than most out there right now. think you owe them an apology!

    I really just want to see what next-gen games Sony and other development studios have to offer. For all we know, the PS4 could struggle just as much as the Vita, despite boasting some impressive specs.
    Thanks to Kwes for the avatar and Sylar for the signature!

    I like the controller idea a lot. Pretty cool if this turns out to be true.

    Yeah I think I do. At the time of posting I didn't even read the article
    Although I remember there was some new story recently that kotaku made up and everyone was pissed...can't remember what was it though

    This one since the CPU is better and RAM is more though we don't know what kind of RAM it is don't have any specifics about the GPU

    Not a bad little read like the sound of some of the specs even if there all false, i do like the idea of having SEN accounts being linked to controllers.

    I think the accounts getting linked to the controllers is ingenious!

    Until something happens to your controller like it breaks, battery goes dead, grab the wrong one when going to a buddies etc..
    Well see when we know more/real specifics.

    PCs are very much like Air Conditioners.
    They both become utterly useless once you start to open up Windows....

    Those comments are probably comparing the bulldozer to i5 or i7 CPUs. Compared to the low power Jaguar CPU in the other rumours, bulldozer is better as far as I know

    Did you read the article? It is not permanently linked to it, just when you press the button the turn it on, it asks which account you want to login with. Just the fact of being able to have 4 players, all using their own accounts while playing multiplayer in a game is awesome!

    Whether it is Bulldozer or Jaguar, both offer plenty of CPU performance for a console. These things don't have to run a full blown operating system on them, after all. VRAM and GPU specs matter a whole lot more than CPU specs when it comes to a console unless you just HAVE to be able to pause your game to watch an episode of Walking Dead on Netflix and then resume play.

    Its funny because previously when people would wish for BC I would tell them to go play ps3 then, but now I REALLY REALLY want BC. It just doesn't make sense to not have ps3 BC

    I really do hope they bring BC back in full force
    The hardware is powerful enough to do it justice and PS3 games need nothing but the ability to play
    BC is a selling point too, I know some people think it ain't
    But could any gamer resist a console that plays the latest games and 3 generations of their games
    Not to mention Sony can still sell the games to those that don't have the originals

    If you had the choice between a $500 PS4 with B/C or a $400 PS4 with no B/C, which one would you buy?
