The Next Generation Starts?
RiKo
Sony are meant to be announcing the Playstation 4 next week. Both Microsoft and Sony's consoles sales have dropped dramatically this last year so it seems an ideal time for the next generation to start.

Here is some information that is at least meant to be true but of course may not be!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Both next gen consoles have been compared to a 400-500 PC

They will lose backwards compatibility (sources from Epic and EA have both said this in the last few days)

Recent information seems to suggest both consoles will have 8GB of RAM (previously the PS4 was said to have 4GB ). Not long ago Epic publicly asked Sony and Microsoft for more memory so they could run Unreal Engine 4. Looks like they got it.

It's *claimed* they will both have measures to stop second hand games working (Xbox 720 will be online permanently and PS4 has other ways to do this, possibly DRM) 2nd hand game sales actually topped new sales from retail outlets so you can see why they would do this.

The graphics chip in the PS4 is more powerful than the new Xbox but the CPU arrangement of both consoles is remarkably similar (both have a number of processor cores running at 1.6 Ghz each)

both the next generation Xbox and its PlayStation competitor feature the same CPU - an eight-core AMD offering running at 1.6GHz and based on its forthcoming low-power, high-performance architecture, Jaguar. From a graphics perspective, AMD is also offering the same tech to both manufacturers: the GCN core, as found in the highly popular Radeon HD 7xxx graphics cards.


The PS4 has a touchpad and screen on the controller.

The Xbox ships with an enhanced version of Kinnect and support for some kind of 3D? glasses is planned for later in its life cycle

The PS4 is meant to be very easy to develop for - both the PS3 and PS2 caused difficulty for developers.

Xbox specs and PS4 comparision are here http://www.euroga...o-vs-orbis

Edge magazine has since claimed these Xbox (code name: Durango) specs have been confirmed by a unnamed developer. But the age of the specs is in question (maybe 9 months ago) but's its unlikely much will have changed since then.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If this is true then expect two very similar consoles and the PS4 to be more powerful then the new Xbox. This does sounds very similar to this gen although it's believed the PS4 will launch at a much lower price than the PS3 this time round, and at around the same time as the new Xbox. Also in a way neither console sounds *that* powerful when you compare them to a high end PC, which is maybe a bit worrying given how quickly technology ages.

Riko, just a couple comments to add: insiders on Neogaf.com claim the upcoming consoles will run a watered down version of UE4. Something about not having the latest lighting effects. They also said specs (for both) were finalized around half a year ago.

Indeed, there will be a push for VR/augmented reality, which means glasses/headgear may play an essential role this gen. This is really sounding exciting, and seemingly like the true way of natural progression for the industry!

Meh... after getting burned by the Wii U and spending all that money with no fun games to play. I'm not expecting much out of Sony or Microsoft except for a more polished turd.

The next generation already started with the realese of the wii u and about not having any fun games to play it has been only 3 months since the release probably non of the consoles had any great games to play at the begining of its life

This is true... but I still have not found a good game for my Vita and that's been over a year now. Though... I have more faith in Nintendo to deliver than I do Sony. The thing is Nintendo has always had a strong launch line up. This time around I think they dropped the ball hard.

I did wright a nice long reply, but the iPad refreshed and it disappeared. Oh well.

Anyway, have this:

sorry bud i havent been here for a while. Thats not good if its a lower grade version, in the old days consoles used to have specs equal to top of range PC or better. PS4 has Gakai (cloud gaming) though, so if that lives up to expectations maybe specs won't matter so much anyway.

haha yes very true. Ironically i think the Xbox 1 had maybe one of the best launch line ups including Halo and DOA3, and Project Gotham, and maybe Jet Set Radio F? Also the Super Famicom, I'm not sure but I think that had SMW and F-Zero, both amazing games!

No problem Riko (I haven't been here much myself either been lurking on Neogaf.com more)...

The rumor regarding a watered down Unreal Engine 4 can all but be put to rest now they have revealed DDR5 to be the system's memory. The PS4 will be able to run virtually the same UE4 as top of the line PCs. We still need to know more about the processors and how it all works in unison, and of course how designers will use it, but "real" UE4 is nearly a shoe in now. Smile

The Zelda demo looked great a year ago. Now it looks outdated (compared to the stuff presented at the meeting). :(
