Official PlayStation Meeting 2013 Breakdown By Jack Tretton

Our next generation console will change the way you interact with friends while you play. PlayStation 4 lets you instantly share images and videos of your favorite gameplay moments on Facebook with a single press on the DUALSHOCK 4 controller’s “share” button. You can also broadcast while you play in real-time through Ustream, allowing friends to comment or jump into your game in new ways. Be sure to check out the post from Shu Yoshida, WWS President, for his thoughts on DUALSHOCK 4 and the “share” features. (PS4, Sony)

Naa man, it will most likely match up to the PS3 on that front.

The Xbox is rumored to have 8GB of DDR3, but w. eDRAM aiding to double / triple the speeds of the RAM. However, it's still not faster than Sony's GDDR5.

That being siad, it's enough to get what they need done. My question is if they truly decide to go with Windows 8, then they're going to lose a good portion of RAM to the OS alone, and Kinect (which is also taking a bit of CPU processing).

All that taxing is going to make the Xbox that much weaker than the PS4. As the current rumored specs. sit (which have proven to be practically DEAD ON with the PS4, thus likely Xbox 1080).

The Xbox 1080 is basically a HD 7770GHz and the PS4 is a 7850, however, the PS4 is pushing above its means with the APU and 8GB of GDDR5 making it more of an HD 7870. While MS is losing some of it's power to Kinect and WIndows 8 OS making it stay at HD 7770GHZ levels.

MS needs to add more RAM (12GB DDR3 which is possible if Sony upped to 8GB), or drop Windows 8 support, so they can at least be right on the heels of the PS4, because as things stand now the PS4 will likely be lead platform for every console game, which isn't a good look.

But MS probably doesn't care as long as they get the game, and can purchase exclusive content for the biggest franchises.

First off, do they have to? If I recall, the Xbox had better specs than the PS2, as did the PSP in comparison to the DS. How did that turn out for the more "powerful" consoles?

Hardware isn't everything.

And to answer your question, no, I don't think Microsoft will have better specs this time around.
nukeitall  +   1014d ago
Like always, specs are only part of the deal. Mostly a minor part at that, because if it was about specs PC would have won out a long time ago, the original Xbox would be a super hit, and the Wii would be a total failure.

Consistently, higher specs machine has almost always never won.

That is because, console consumers generally don't care as much about specs as the experience. They for the most part aren't driven by GBs of RAM, or the latest highest GHz processor. The little extra you can see is barely noticeable and the vast consumers won't notice it much.

It is the overall experience and that experience is dependent on execution by management!

You won't know for at least a a year or two, where it will all fall in place. Heck, even during the cycle MS turned around and beat the Wii in unit sales and is on track to outsell it.

I think Sony did a lot of the right moves, but it is too early to see. There are a lot of questions left.

^^Well said. I'm really liking the whole social aspect of the PS4. The UI looks sick! The fact that I'll be able to game on my smartphone is just plain awesome! I'm getting the Nexus 5 in the fall =D
tait269  +   1014d ago
That is definitely right check 3DS vs PSVITA sales. With everything going cloud based, I can see MS having the Edge against Sony purely because they are a software company.
majiebeast  +   1014d ago
I think at best 8gb ddr3/4gb GDDR5(Highly doubt this)
MasterCornholio  +   1014d ago
I believe that microsofts 720 will have 8GB DDR3 ram. With a lot of said ram dedicated to the OS and i expect it to have something similar to Windows 8 modern UI.

Now that i mention the OS i wonder how the PS4s will be like?
Arekkz  +   1014d ago
No doubt the PS4 UI will look nice in the demonstration, but when it comes to actually delivering, it'll probably be like XMB all over again - slow, dated, and lacking in functionality...
talisker  +   1014d ago
I think we got a glimpse at the UI during the conference.
Arekkz  +   1014d ago
Yeah, I really like the way the UI Profile page looks, especially if it tailors to you!
tait269  +   1014d ago
The UI is Really nice. lots of new features.
kingmushroom  +   1014d ago

DJ  +   1014d ago
PS4 looks great. Can't wait to see what direction Microsoft is taking with the new Xbox!
saimcheeda  +   1014d ago
PlayStation 4

I think they build the consoles similar on purpose so both can run multiplats, or one company would go all in and win the screenshot comparison every time.
