I can only speak for myself but since Sony thinks keeping everyone personal information with security equivalent of writing on a napkin and servers that could be bought at a garage sale. I feel so good every time i hit up filestube and download free games all day expect to see ps4 faster because theirs no motivation for people to still pay for games.
Sorry $ony but I will not be LEASING your PS4 any time soon!
I shall only buy your PS4 when it is hacked thereby being able to own the device and do whatever I see fit with it! Until it is done so I will be playing on my currently hacked and personally owned PS3, and probably shall be buying the next Xbox console instead.
Merry Xmas from an ex-fan.
There have been rumors for over a year now of a new Xbox being in the works. Of course its just rumors.
But to be honest, i don't think MS waited the rumors to start building the new console. If you want my opinion they've been working on it for a few years now (developing the materials, architecture, etc... doesn't take 6 months).
And on its side Sony did the same, i even suspect they started building the PS4 when the PS3 came out (they like to introduce complicated architectures).
In my opinion 2013 is the deadline. I suspect something will be announced during 2012 (maybe E3 or TGS). The Xbox is getting old.
I'm not saying the console will hit the market in 2012, but being announced at least. 2013 is pretty realistic considering the age of the Xbox 360.
Regardless, I hope the current gen consoles make it to the decade point before they are EOL. Well minus Wii, which is already on the way out.
- Yes Sony could use an updated Cell and I wouldn't be surprised considering they bought Toshiba's Cell manufacturing plant.
- This would be a good idea but Sony don't like paying for the expense of high end GPUs.
- You mean multiple cores? The Cell didn't have multiple cores, it had a single one and 8 vector units. 1 disabled, 1 reserved.
The RSX is a modified/crippled GTX 7800. It's absolutely ancient history by computer standards. They would have no reason to use an 'updated' version of that since that technology and it's successors have been replaced many times over. There were 8800/9800, GTX 280, GTX 480 and GTX 580 series. If Sony do decide to go with nVidia whatever the PS3 uses will be based on the 680 or 780 series.
Er, I meant whatever the PS4 uses.
if the ps4 has full b/c with ps, ps2, and ps3 then it will be a strong challenger for my next-gen console purchase. as far as resolution, i'd be happy with 5k (5120x2700) and games running no slower than 60fps at any point during play.
That's a problem of lazy programmers.
I would be surprised if they went with nVidia again, nVidia's cards eat power.
