people who are expecting another $500-600 console are gonna be disappointed, at the most i see a $399-449 but if i am abetting man i think 2 SKU's $399 and $349 are very likely

wii to wii-u was a big jump because going SD to HD makes a big difference, now with ps3 and xbox360 both are already in HD now we need next ones to have little better specs

full 1080P
locked 60 frames per second
improve Ram to minimum 4GB and as much as 6 to 8GB
500GB Hard drive minimum
a lot of cloud based services/ and day one digital for most of titles

just have a above average launch lineup please, i don't want to buy another console only to get some games in first month than nothing good for a year like it was with ps3.

both companies have had a lot of time to prepare for next gen so atleast 2 big exclusives at launch and 2 more within first 12 months

steve30x1955d ago

You dont know that the consoles will be less than $600.

Errrrrr... This doesn't disappoint me at all :)

pixelsword1955d ago

A cheaper next-gen console that is a true jump in tech won't disappoint me at all.

"full 1080P

Going to cost AT LEAST $600 with specs like that, lol.

$399 would get us a box that can do 30fps/1080p on some titles, the more demanding efforts would run 720p.

TheRealSpy1954d ago

I think it's likely that the next gen consoles WILL be close to 500-600 dollars.

DeadlyFire1954d ago (Edited 1954d ago )

1080 on new game engines at 60 fps? I am little skeptical. $399-499 they will likely sell em in that range with a production cost of $525-650

Considering all the bells and whistles in patents and rumors. Kinect 2, Move 2, Projecter(lllumniroom), VR headsets/glasses, and many other little details.

I say it could easily be first gen with two consoles at $600 dollars or more with production costs. Retail from $399-$599 at most.

The headline reminded me of that awful Fight Club game.

If all these rumours are true, the 360 and PS3 are NOT building powerhouse consoles. They will be quite powerful, but not as big a jump as some might have though. $350-$400 seems likely. I myself would prefer them to cost at least $500, so long as they were more 'future proof' in a sense. Should be interesting.

I seriously can't wait to see how busy N4G and the internet will be come E3. Console reveals are like Christmas morning as a young child, except it only comes once everey 6 years or so.

I would rather pay $600-1000 for a machine that gets a jump on pc at least for a year. Or allow upgrades in which games r released at medium settings but u can invest in equipment that gives u high settings. If they are not as good as good pcs now, i will look to pc gaming and/or steambox for next gen. I used to have to have exclusives but there are so many damn good games and i wont be happy if i spend $400 and the pc version is the best version right outof the gate. Hell, i have missed out on a ton of good pc games because i dont have one. It will b hard to not buy what my friends do but maybe ill get a ps4 down the road to play with them if they go that route...and just switch to pc.

I do understand that consoles can do more with less because of archtecture and the fact that their studios dictate game production so i will wait and see. I have heard that xbox may go with 6-8 cores leaving the future wide open. I just dont understand why they dont go the upgrade route. Its more money for them in the long run and if the specs are broad, they can expand the life cycle because tech today is moving exlonentially fast. How long can next gen consoles survive with static tech?

AznGaara1955d ago

If you're willing to spend a grand on a machine that will never happen just get a PC. The reason why a console will always be behind is this: Say it's 2010 and you put 2012 tech in your new ps4/720 by the time that console comes out it would already be 2012 and by that time the PC community will be working on 2013 tech. The whole point of a console is accessibility if they add upgradable parts like GPUs and RAM it'll only confuse the consumers.

Perjoss1955d ago

"gets a jump on pc"

Yeah that's never gonna happen. Even on release day a brand new console has always been much weaker than a half decent gaming rig, not even thinking about a high end one.

joab7771955d ago

Yeah, I know. But why cant u have upgrades like steambox. U have medium settings for all those that don't care and it will be quality. But, for a niche, u allow some upgrading to better the experience.

B-radical1955d ago

it would take a whole lot more then 1000 to get a jump on pc's

nunley331954d ago

The N64 went the upgrade route when it released it's jump pack or "bulky pack" as it was refered to as in japan. It added more ram to the system and games optimized for it had better textures in it. Something like this would be a nice option to offer next gen for 720 & PS4.
