ElectricKaibutsu  +   542d ago
It is indeed a new rumor, and it sounds pretty legit. It totally could be an elaborate lie of course. I still found the article fascinating.

In the end it soooo doesn't matter which one looks slightly better. The PS3 is more powerful than the 360 but no one cares. It's just for bragging, like my dad can beat up your dad.
MikeMyers  +   542d ago
It doesn't matter all that much which one is more powerful, 3rd party game publishers often design their games around the lowest common denominator anyways. It happened on the PS2 and it happened on the Xbox 360.

Of course what I just said could be a rumor as well.

rumor: 720 not much better than 360
rumor: 720 much better than PS4

this would mean the PS3 is as good as the PS4 or even better.. makes perfect sense

As you might expect, this rumor is a direct contradiction and calls PS4 more powerful.

So, have at it. Try not to bite one another in the comment section of my sub. (I suspect both of these will be top heat of N4G for the rest of the day they are up.)

"This is utter bullsh*t. Their source is this:

which just goes to prove how ridiculous these sites have gotten. This can't even be classed as a rumour. I thought rumour in technology magazines were bad but gaming takes it to a whole new level. That isn't a trusted source and why is a big website reporting it as such. Gaming needs a shake up with these crummy reporters needing to go. I feel embarrassed for them and I feel embarrassed to share an interest with them

No rumor can be debunked because it's not known if it real or not, that's why it's a rumor, but considering the fact that MS has more money than Sony and the later keep losing money every quarter, it should be safe to asume MS can subsidize a more powerful console next-gen
GraveLord  +   542d ago
It's a fake rumor, as it fake. If you can't see that then take off your fanboy glasses. While I was reading this I thought this was a parody of the VG247 rumor, but they're actually serious.....lucky for them people like Electric Kaibutsu are quick to believe anything they read on the internet.
Lvl_up_gamer  +   542d ago
The way I see it...

MS caters to the #1 gaming demographic in the world...North America.

Us "American's" (that's including Canadians like me) means we want the biggest and best. bigger = better is our mentality.

I see MS using their vast amount of resources to produce a very powerful console and taking a large hit on it at retail in order to get it into the homes of North America citizens. Consider MS also wants the 720 to have a Kinect 2.0 unit already installed in each unit and for the console to replace (eventually) your cable box.

That is a lot the console will have to do AND play Battlefield 3 PC like games.

I have no doubt that MS will release a very powerful console since they can afford it making billions from XBL which will help cushion the initial loss that MS will take on each console sold until manufacturing cost become lower and MS later start turing a profit after a few years on each console sold.

Lets not forget that MS is also willing to subsidise selling units. Buying cheap but have an XBL contract for X amount of years....we all know MS will actually make MORE money that way then someone buying a console outright. Win win situation. MS get's market share and returns on XBL while the consumer gets an affordable gaming unit sooner rather then later.

MS have set themselves up in a really profitable position this gen. It all comes down to money. MS are worth $230 billion and Sony is worth $12 billion. It's easy enough to see that MS just have the resources to create a stronger system then Sony and sell it at a competing price against Sony. MS may lose more money on each console sold but they could outsell the PS4 to retain market share. The more 720's in homes, the more MS makes on services like XBL which would be a reoccuring revenue.

Makes no sense for MS to allow thie main console competitor to get a leg up on them going into next gen when MS have fought so hard this gen to be a contending competitor in the console market.

Expect MS to come out next gen with everything AND the kitchen sink crammed into the 720.

Bottom line, IMO the 720 will be significantly more powerful then the PS4.

Maybe MS paid someone to spread this rumor so it gets to Sony so they can make the PS4 as powerful as the can then charge $600 again and MS release a weaker console and price it at
$400.

For the sanity sake, guys!
This "misterxmedia" guy is a well-known here in Russia as a diehard Xbox fanboy. He's infamous for his many-years tales of fantastic graphical "x-engine" that should be soon used in X360 games and put all those Sony exclusives to shame. And he told this for about two or three years since 2009, if I remember correctly! He's an object of jokes in russian console flamewars, a synonym to utter liar. Really, even other Xbox fans don't belive him or give credits for a long time already after all those years of his lies and bs in this "misterxmedia.livejournal ".
It's really embarrasing, that someone approved article from this source.

"The console has 8gig of ram. But 6 gig is ddr4 system ram.. The other 3gig is gddr5. This is not including cach or edram. The system soc is a 8850 spec gpu with 4 core cpu."

Using GDDR5 + DDR4 which isn't even out and will only be used for servers at launch. Also different type RAM numbers don't add up and even they do (according to this comedy article) 6 + 3 = 8 ??? This alone turns thir rumour into a big drunk joke. Let alone mentioning the HD 9000 series and the ??? HD 10000. Series. Epic fail.
Anyway I only see this farticle doing more good to Sony and Orbis than harming them: a reason why Sony should increase the power of its next-gen console.
TheGamerDood  +   542d ago
they just updated the article with new info from VG247 which now puts into question their own rumor. xD

"UPDATE: VG247 has just revealed a report of a source that has revealed to the site that the PS4 is in fact more powerful than the Xbox 720. Here the source claims the PS4 will be capable of 1.82TFlops while the Xbox 720 is capable of only 1.23 TFlops.

It's a world away from the details we've posted here, but we urge you to have a read and judge for yourself.

As always it's worth remember that this is all early conjecture - how true any of this is hard to gauge until we see final confirmation of the hardware."

Actually this one can be completely debunked by anyone who knows about computer hardware.

The article is a translation mess so its difficult to know for sure how he meant it but either way its bunk.

It seems he was implying 2 banks of Ram again for the PS4, 1 with 4Gb DDR3 and 1 with an additional 4Gb GDDR5, GDDR5 is graphics double data rate v5, it is VRam not DIM Ram and is impossible to use as normal Ram.

And even if he did mean 4Gb of VRam on the GPU, the cheapest GPU on the market right now with 4Gb of GDDR5 is $450.

@ElectricKaibutsu

Actually, the PS3 is not more powerful than the 360. This has been explained by many developers. The PS3 has a more powerful CPU (also more difficult to use), while the 360 has a more powerful GPU and better memory architecture (and more available RAM due to smaller OS footprint).

So your comments is pretty far off base. Even though both consoles (PS3 and 360) are extremely close in overall power, people make a huge deal over any small difference they might perceive there to be.

I don't think graphical performance is the end-all and be-all of a console's worth, but obviously many people place a very high premium on graphical capabilities.

Rumor has it the Wii U is already more powerful than the rumored 720 and rumored PS4. And other rumors point to rumors about PC rumors having rumors of a Next-Gen console-like PC rumored to have dual Haswell Intel i7's with rumored specs of 5.5ghz clockspeeds and coupled with the Rumored GTX700 series.

Just a rumor though.

To me first party PS3 games look slightly better than first party 360 games; that was my basis for thinking the PS3 is more powerful. But again, it doesn't matter. Both systems will be getting all the multiplats.

debunking rumor with another rumor?classic
Hehehe, I like it when rumours debunk other rumours.
Rumour has it nextbox will be more powerful than ps4.
Rumour 2 has it ps4 will be more powerful. Rumour 2 is newer and thus debunks rumour 1. Yay! - Your logic.
And now rumour 3 comes along and says nextbox will be more powerful.
The rule of rumour plus fact that its 2 vs 1 means that nextbox will be more powerful right? Or is it that rumour 2 already debunked rumour 1 and since rumour 3 is pretty much rumour 1 only newer, rumour 2 still debunks rumour 3?
Rumour debunking is so confusing. A delicate art.

rumor three in this case would debunk rumor two. its not a 2 v 1 scenario because rumor one was already null and void. once that happens rumor two stands alone. so if rumor three comes along and says the same thing that rumor one did, its considered still a newer rumor than rumor two and therefore debunks rumor two and leaving it to stand alone as the most accurate and up to date rumor

Makes sense the xbox would be more powerful:

* PS3 was the first and only time a PS console wasn't the least powerful. Every other time they were the 3rd most powerful console.

* Look what having the best graphics did for you PS fans ? It allowed you to have to wait years for good games.

Wouldn't you rather have a console that plays tons of games and is 95% as powerful as Xbox ?

madjedi  +   542d ago
Yeah the 360's launch lineup wasn't exactly overflowing with triple a quality titles, but a bunch of barely optimized xbox ports, not saying the ps3 was much better. Hello gun, ring any bells.

Rfom was a good game(subjective stupid) as was motorstorm, now the next xbox is likely not going to be more powerful, simply because the ps4 is expected to launch last and the 720 first.

"Look what having the best graphics did for you PS fans ? It allowed you to have to wait years for good games."

Getting first party exclusives that typically curbed stomped the 360's exclusive games visually. And not getting cut down to 3 or 4 primary series and the rest third party games. It's called patience learn it.

Again stupid it's a marathon, not a sprint, that is something hopefully microsoft learned.

"Wouldn't you rather have a console that plays tons of games" If you want that stick to a ps3 or 360, because both systems have to rebuild their libraries from nothing at launch.

This article makes more sense. Not because of console fanboyism but because everybody can see msft's "own the livingroom" strategy in progress right now(something ps3 fanboys attack MSFT/360 for)

The 720 will have to be extremely powerful to run all of MSFT's next gen hybrid products and partner applications etc(kinect 2, set top box/IPTV-PC to console multi player)

MSFT was strategically greedy with the price of the very successful 360(lack of pricedrops) and had made billions from XBL Gold to insure proper R&D funding for the future, giving confidence to investors to help XBL evolve. Now they need hardware to give life to their vision. LMAO at the rumor vote being voted not true in this article but in the one saying the PS3 is twice as powerful was voted mostly true

real gamers cheer for innovation not a brand. i love xbox live, just hated microsofts present gen tactics. so i went with sony. I hope sony has done enough this gen to force microsoft to make a real quality console next gen, but i wont hold my breath. Id love to be able to justify buying an xbox console other then by peer pressure. microsoft definately has the budget to do it i believe theyll compete with sony on a hardware level this gen, due to the almost certainty of same year release for both platforms, and the huge success of blu ray(no more fucking dvd microsoft, its done leave it alone).

microsoft are proprietary whores though so i am still concerned, and if they push kenect too hard its definitely a no for me.

I hope these new consoles push the bar because i really would rather buy a new tv and console vs a new gaming pc.

im a fan of specs, usability and games of course, so i dont care which but one of you two please present, and i gladly give you my money and recomend your console.

ps sony really needs to get help in the software department.

@Timmy,
The specs I listed may be wrong, but granted msft want it to be a cable set top box Xbox 720 for under $400.. Goodluck thinking it will be more powerful than a PS4 made solely to game.
I suggest you read VG247 friend.

VG247, the more reliable site says otherwise..

www.vg247.com/2013/01/17showt ime-ps4-rumoured-at-1-84tf-xbox -720-at-1-23tf/

EDIT: 4TF next gen would price the consoles at $600. No ways either companies are going down that road!
The near 2TF rumors are true, that would make them 8-10times more powerful than Xbox 360 and PS4.

Also, Timmy, I have been reading up on Gaf and Semi-accurate the last 6 months, EVERY SINGLE DETAIL in that article is a mish mash of every rumor/debunked rumore since last August.
In fact, the "blitter" detail was thrown into Gaf yesterday by a poster that reg'd the same day.

If ANYONE thinks we're getting 3.5-4TF next gen, its impossible to do it affordably.
However, both next gen systems will perform far superior to a pc with those TF. Maybe even a pc with its double the specs.
Show me a pc from 2006 running Uncharted 3 type graphics with a Nvidia 7800? Or, a 2006 PC with a R500 GPU running Halo 4 etc?

I remain skeptical...MS has been focusing on the kinect experience. They are targeting casuals. Casuals don't validate spending money for performance.

Also, let's not forget how budget the 360 was when it first launched. No, I'm not referring to the RRoD. I'm talking about lack of HDMI interface, bluetooth, the addition of a 'tray' for the dvd drive.
Loki86  +   542d ago
This is a new console cycle, they are going to want to hook in the hardcore audience that built there platform to begin, while catering to casuals. MS are master marketers and they will have something for everyone at launch.
supremacy  +   542d ago
if true, Sony needs to up their game. I would love for these two platforms to be equal in power and overall performances. If money is the problem then Sony might have to simply follow the ms way and charge for psn across the board.

MS generates atleast 1 billion a year of live, Sony should take that into consideration.

Also, i am please these two are fighting to bring out the most powerful platform in recent years.

supremacy  +   542d ago
I dont WANT Sony to start charging for psn. I simply suggested if they need to do it, then thats not out of the realm of possibility.

If your close competitor is making a killing of their network, why couldnt Sony? i mean thats money they need and could use.

They dont have to charge what ms charges for their service, they could under price them at 40 or even 35 a year, any income is good, specially for a company that is likely to invest that money back to its developers.

And with new hardware, i am sure the network will gain some much needed improvements. This is something that would theoretically validate the fee.

its not the end of the world, just another venue of income.

Sony lost so much money with powerful tech. ps3 is going to be the least selling console for sony and Vita with all its tech is not selling good at all.

I think if sony DOES NOT make a system thats profitable within the first 6 months to a year on ps4 (which means less power) then the powers to be at sony need to be fired. Sony cannot lose money for 5-6 years on ps4 like they did with ps3. and vita connot hold them over till ps4 starts making money because its not selling at all.

I'm not sure if you are aware of this but console manufactures don't really make a lot off of console sells it comes from software profits.

With MS they push hard on XBLG to make up for it and for tech that dev after dev has said held the industry back. But none of that is important.

You need to keep in mind that PS+ is very common in the PS3 gaming community...my friends list is full and they all have PS+ so they have considerable profits there. Add to that PS3 has home which Sony has gone on record several times saying that it's making them some good cash.

The truth is PS4 is already set up to make money out the gate regardless of if it loses money on each console sold because the system will have additional revenue streams that other consoles don't.

Back to topic on hand every day there is a new rumor saying this or that we won't know anything until March or later so these posts just need to go away until then.

new rumor...sony and microsoft are cancelling their new consoles to make the dreamcast 2 together. Duke nukem forever 2 will be the only launch title...the end
Ron_Danger  +   542d ago
I actually saw that rumor. There are actually 2 other semi confirmed launch titles since EA just bought the rights to make a Bubsy 3D HD remake and last I checked the Atari ET: the Extra Terestrial HD remake just left the beta stage. Cross your fingers on a Kinnect/ Move hybrid version of Mathblasters HD also

If these rumors hold true if so it's a monster!! It's pretty technical not to be taking seriously.

- super advanced tech by IBM-AMD-MS. Design started back in 2007 as you said in 2010.
- It has APU+GPU on every SOC(system on a chip).
- It has 2 of this SOCs
- Each CPU in APU has 8 cores with 4 thread in each. So tolal we have 2xSOC x 8Cores x 4 threads = 16cores x 4thread=64 threads.
- Each GPU in SOC is 8xxx GPU(Mars or Venus) with advanced tech not available on PC some time
- Xbox has some other hardware features. Like RayTraycing chip(VTE on this picture).
- The goals of the system design are - universal for different type of tasks, easy to parralellism, easy to fully load, zero bottlenecks an future proof as Xbox 360 design with low energy consumtion..
- It should be about 4+terraflops. Of couse it will be better of every high end PC available in 2013-2014 and maybe 2015. With optimisation it have to be on pair with PC 8 years."

I think that's up to the game developers. Like call of duty on the 360 is better than the ps3, and how uncharted smashes any 360 game.

Ron_Danger  +   542d ago

JohnnyAkiba  +   542d ago
New rumor everyone. The Computer of Apollo Lunar Module (LM) will be more powerful than PS4 and Xbox3.
Wikkid666  +   542d ago
Well my rumor is more powerful than all rumors.
deadfrag  +   542d ago
Im not liking the rumor that the PS4 had heat problems in development,due to the lack of money for R&D from Sony.This is very bad if true;Sony should have done more R&D even if they delay the console face to M$ release.Frankly BY looking to the ps3 RELEASES this year,that are massive and full of great first party games;Sony should have delayed the PS4 for more R&D!Lets hope the tides dont change regarding hardware problems,due to lack of R&D.I think im going to wait a bit before buying any of this new consoles,i have the money but i need to see the full eficience of the hardware before jumping in and not to mention that this year if full of great titles yet to come!

That'd be the same Sony that spent a couple of billion on EMI and hundreds of millions buying Gaikai, and has ongoing R&D expenditures up the wazoo. I wouldn't worry too much about this rumour - it reads (both grammatically and factually) like it was written by a couple of 10 year olds ;).

This rumor doesn't seem legit

Another thing,dont trust nowgamer rumor report!
