PS4 10x power of PS3 and Xbox to release in June

More news from a UK daily national tabloid newspaper which makes some bold claims for its readers gleaned from suggested Internet rumors, leaks and its own sources.

The thing is, The Sun has millions of non gaming savvy readers who will take their claims as gospel.

gaffyh1663d ago

@bunt - Definitely.

A lot of this is old rumors, and conjecture and nothing that has actually been substantiated.

Also Xbox June release, really doubt it.

Indeed the amount of crappy football rumours people take as truth I hear is insane.. I would love to See PS4 in June and hell its possible but its doubtful. It would really annoy the crap out of MS though if they did.. It may explain why GTA was delayed as they could have told Rockstar its launching in June so rockstar delayed to game to make a PS4 version. Imagine if GTA was an exclusive (nex gen) to ps4? That would be huge for Sony and releasing early would possibly net that.

New Xbox likely to launch in June 2013 - Fake
Will have film quality graphics - like real life? I don´t think so

SonyStyled1663d ago

i imagine they will be close to film quality graphics. theres already a few PS3 exclusives that are comparable to film quality as it is. god of war and killzone for example

FlyingFoxy1663d ago

I always said 2015-2020 would be the year of graphics that take a huge leap.

KwietStorm1663d ago

@Sonystyled

LOL there is nothing "film quality" about God of War or Killzone. They have very good graphics and that's it. Be serious.

Wait a minute 10x more powerfull? I thought the PS3 was already had supercomputer power, does this mean its a quantum calculation now? Lol, whatever, Im tired of bs numbers with poor results.

ZoyosJD1663d ago

Quantum computers should take over right around the time transistors gates hit low single digit atom counts, sometime around the year 2025. But they may never become consumer products, as the process of transmitting quantum data requires "teleportation" due to the fragility of quantum bits(qbits, which are know to be destroyed after each operation), and some of the components are physically rare(something like diamond, crystal, etc. would be required).

As a quick example of the exponential power of qbits, a terabyte of data is 2^43 0/1 values, while 500 qbits is 2^500 "complex" values. They can be analogized to vector calculus, while today's computers would comparatively be addition and subtraction by 1.

meganick1663d ago

The PS3 certainly is no supercomputer, but it was quite a powerful console when it came out, and it still holds up well today. But today's high end PC's (which are also not supercomputers) trounce the PS3.
But anyway, I'm eager to see what Sony reveals about PS4 later this month.

Shadowstar1663d ago

Supercomputer is a moving target. Your dumb phone is probably an advanced supercomputer compared to the first supercomputer in the 1960s.

Why do the English over sensationalized everything?

The media that is.

FlyingFoxy1663d ago

British, not english.. the UK isn't just england.

GalacticEmpire1663d ago

One crappy tabloid rag does not represent an entire country.

British journalism is a mixed bag like most other countries and, proudly, some of the most unbiased of any country.

3-4-51663d ago

Obviously it doesn't represent a whole country and I know the difference between England & Great Britain alright.

admiralvic1663d ago

You need to get out more...

This is no different than Famitsu saying "check back for a scoop on a popular game fans want next week." Typically these are followed up by some lame game no one cares about, a game we never heard about and won't care about or in some cases a genuine scoop.

Wesley851663d ago

The Sun is a very despised paper in the UK. They are known to lie and create stories to sell papers. And it is a paper owned and run by American Rupet Murdoch.

frjoethesecond1663d ago

Rupert Murdock is Australian.

Wesley851663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

He is dual nationality Australia/American.

I just googled and found out he lost his Australian citizenship when he aquired his American citizenship in 1985.

Definately lol. Those 'journalists' just collected every rumor that is on the internet, no matter how dumb it is. But hey, it's The Sun, so nothing much to expect from them anyway, but for us who are informed it's funny, but the regular reader might even believe it.

Bigpappy1663d ago

If they were to truly release in June, that would be a very interesting move. I would really like to see how it sells, right after the E3 hype. But alas, this will not happen.

Nafon1663d ago

perfectly sums up the article and title.

Matt06111663d ago

Love how he definitely just googled PS4 images and took the first two he found.

hotrider121663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

720 release date JUNE?? lol so much flamebait the SUN must be sooooooo bright

they will post anything for hits.

lfclee1663d ago

Isn't the Wiiu like 300. Ps4 will probably launch at like 450.

juandren1663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

Read again. It's in pounds, not dollars. Don't think the PS4 will be $700...

CaptainN1663d ago

That was regarding it being 10 times the power not price!
