Cheap Pricing Will Give Sony the Lead Next Generation

"There’s currently a rumor going around that the new PS4 will be called the Orbis, that several versions are currently in the hands of developers, and that the specs are not what we’ve all been expecting. While these rumors should be treated as just that—rumors—they are being confirmed by multiple sources, so it’s worth taking an in-depth look at the machine. "

Cheap pricing will gain anyone the lead next gen.

-Mika-1996d ago

I don't blame sony for going cheap next gen. Look at what being cutting edge and powerful got them. The vita is it latest example. Gamers are always going on about graphics and wanting a powerful system but when Sony gives it to them. You guys don't buy it and then say it too expensive.

I hope Sony wins next gen with this new outlook they developed because appeasing to the core is just not working for them.

I agree with you on this one.

Looking forward to the reaction of the core fan base

Graphics are at a point now where even the weakest console will still look perfectly fine.

You know its not always about being first that counts. Look at the amazing games that sony has given us that is only capable on the system. Their next console will be no different. As long as the console is still selling I think Sony is fine. They aren't rushing to be 1st in the console race. Sony will still have the strongest console next gen.

time to take the MS route and make camera games & repeat non innovative franchises? I hope not.

Remember ps3 still did good even after a bad start. Imagine ps4 with a good start.

Even if ps4 had the same specs as 720 ps4 games would look more immpressive seeing how sony devs push hardware.
and that is off camera.

I think MS will basically keep the same strategy as this gen.
"The first game (bungie game) in the series was planned for release in 2013, with a sequel scheduled for release every second year after. The first game would be exclusive to Xbox 360, while the sequels would then be released on both PS3 and PC as well."

So this is basically speculating on speculation? Gotcha.

Whatever happens for the next gen one thing is for sure, no single company will dominate.

Hopefully, cheap pricing wouldn't compromise the hardware; I'd rather have something expensive that will last for years rather than a cheap console that is hardly next gen at all.

people are acting like there is no way for Sony to have custom chips AND THAT THEY ARE USING OFF THE SHELF PARTS!

I REPEAT AS OF NOW this rumor is just that a [email protected] rumor, i posted info directly from the head CTO of Sony's Hard ware div. Stated, they are building a custom CPU and GPU chipset!

that it could very well be the 1st 1 billion chip set design in Playstation History. This info was direct from Sony but yet this is the 3rd [email protected] post about this rumor Info being posted when the factual info keeps getting brushed aside!

again i am going to post it.

It appears that Sony is once again a “3DIC” leader showing that wide IO memory can be used without having to introduce HVM TSV technology which most assuredly, at this point in 3DIC evolution, would have been a costlier option which would have taken significantly longer to implement.

Earlier this year Masaaki Tsuruta, CTO of Sony Computer Entertainment, indicated that there will likely be a 3D stack incorporating TSV technology in the next generation console. Sony's target of no more than 50ms latency even for 8k x 4k resolution at 300fps, clearly points to the need for a highly integrated TSV-based package although Tsuruta warned "We will have to work with a lot of third-party partners to make these things happen."

Clearly, Sony will be a major player in the era of 2.5/3D

"for the incoming console is likely to be a 3D stack incorporating thru-silicon-via technology and could be the first $1bn hardware design project."

The PSvita already uses 3D stacked chip's

And as for AMD if they are it would confirm the use of these type of chips if anything:

ADDING multiple Arm cortex core's right on the CPU/GPU package die 3D stacked!
