Only problem is k!llzone and Infamous (outside of a game informer cover story before E3 on Infamous) have generated no buzz or awards from people who played it (outside of best playstation game award) and was not quoted as being "biggest" or most "significant" in the original post. As far as the PS4 being more powerful, I have yet to see a game that proves this and there is no proof that I ever will just like last generation with the PS3 and the generation prior with the og xbox. My point was simply that the publisher of the magazine is pandering to fanboys. Look through this thread, someone posted a cover from an older issue from Feb 2006 suggesting that the PS3 might have already won the console war, I'm sure that cover sold massive amounts of issues.

u've barely even seen any games running on the x1..they were all running on PCs

If you want to believe that game developers took time out of their schedule to optimize games for higher end pcs that are more powerful than the PS4 when the game isn't even complete yet, then go right ahead. By the way I got bridge for sale that you might be interested in buying.

the funny thing is last gen.. people said the same thing about the ps3 vs the 360. Microsoft console is way better this time, even though I think they should have released 2 versions because I like it the way first announced it. I don't have anything that isn't 100% online even my Blu-ray and tv are connected 100% of the time.

if it come down to spending money to ride out this next generation Sony isn't built for it
Shhhhh don't say that, Sony are comfortable and doing pretty well, so well they wouldn't need to move more units than the PS3 to stay afloat (over an estimated 77 million)


I love Sony though and wouldn't want them to fold cos sentimentalities won't allow it, but according to BX alone + Sony's finances, PS+ would prob need to nearly double Live users to sustain this console! Console is cheap which is great (I did call the $400-$450) range, and I was off by $0.01 :P, but they need to make money!

Plus I wouldn't trust PSN with my credit card details, wouldn't even trust Live with my details, but at least I'm not watching over my shoulder and wondering about lack of communication when they get hacked! For me TBH was the last straw, few months before that I wanted to buy a PS3, once they got hacked, and the way it was handled?? FOH

For all I knew, my credit card could have been used for an entire week before I even knew Sony need to fu*kin fix their after service hard! No free crap will put me at ease

According to posts here and around the internet, "The PS4 is 10 times more powerful than the PS3".

Pretty sure one of the Sony execs said that dumb sh*t.
Ram wise its like 16 times more than ps3 and the GPU is better
I still think Cell CPU is wayyy better than what they have now.

Xbox One vs PS4 its similar but PS4 does edge it out in RAM and Teraflops, that will show eventually But not the first years.

The PS3 couldn't output a single teraflop in raw processing power. Every budget GPU/CPU would k!ll it.

The PS4's GPU alone smashes the PS3 in its entirety. The PS4's CPU is comparable to an Intel Core i3 which is around 2.3 Teraflops. Combined with the 1.8 by the GPU?

4+ teraflops which is anywhere between 6-10x more powerful than the PS3.

the media is going hard but we'll see where its at in a year or so....

in the words of Jason Rubin.....

This is going to be a long duel between Microsoft and Sony, there is alot that can happen over the span of a decade. Right now Ps4 is the favorite but if you think Xbox is out of this thing you are out of your mind

From an analytical standpoint, he's possibly correct.

However, Microsoft is in trouble with a poor start like this.

Their PR is still horrid. Until there's some signs of change there, Sony's going keep smashing their heads in.

God forbid the PS4 gets an earlier release date.

I agree, M$ fu*ked up bad and they are going to pay for it, i see them trailing for atleast the first year or so but I do believe that once people see what these things can do Xbox will catch up, feature wise its just more casual friendly me and my wife wants this thing for two completely different reason and i think thats the selling point M$ just has to figure out how to pitch that

Microsoft has alienated the hardcore audience. They have to win these people back.

It's important because they're the loudest consumers even though they're probably not the majority.

It's an uphill battle because I just don't believe they understand the hardcore gamer too much anyway. Price, performance, games, and functionality seems to be at the forefront with Sony and it's resonating with most gamers.

Microsoft should have stuck with their bait and switch tactic with the 360. It was a pure gaming console between 2005-2009. Then the media features crept in.

Now they need to convince the audience why Kinect is required, justify the price given the lower spec, and ultimately push the console as something hardcore gamers would want. It's overly complicated.

Be smart people. Learn from the last generation. Remember red ring of death, and yellow light of death? These consoles aren't out yet and 100% finalized and people are making judgements on specs and media driven ads. Most likely if you didn't attend E3 you have played NOTHING.

Instead I say capitalize on the ignorance of others. Remember when the PS3 first game out? No, it sold for thousands and was impossible to get around the holidays.

Pre-order a PS4 or two or three and resell them. PS4 clearly has more hype and will most likely be in higher demand and short supply. From the profit you make then make a wise decision based on games that are actually out, and see if there are any issues with these systems.

Silly devotion to any console or system is ridiculous. At the end of the day these are BUSINESS'S. They don't give a fu*k ABOUT YOU or ME. Stop being there marketing tool.

Great post, though "thousands" is a bit of an exaggeration for most cases.
