You Can't Build A PS4: Why Sony's Next Console Is Truly Next-Gen And Your PC Isn't?

The PS4 uses hardware that you simply can’t get for your custom gaming PC.Forbes contributor Carol Pinchefsky has priced out a do-it-yourself gaming PC. That the specs are somewhere in the ballpark of the PS4. (Next-Gen, PS4)

For instance, the nVidia “Titan” GPU, which costs $1000 by itself, has just 6GB of GDDR5 RAM, and that’s still all reserved for the GPU. You’ll be hard-pressed to find any PC with GDDR5 plugged directly into the motherboard rather than sitting on the graphics card. This just isn’t how PCs work at the moment, though that will likely change.

GDDR5, while suffering from slightly higher latency, offers a substantial bandwidth boost over DDR3, and given the make-up of the integrated CPU/GPU chip in the PS4 this will translate to a substantial performance boost.

The PS4, on the other hand, houses an integrated CPU/GPU custom AMD chip—the “Jaguar” CPU is not available for purchase yet and the GPU side of the equation is said to be similar to AMD cards running in the $200 price-range. The secret weapon here isn’t either the 8-core CPU or the GPU, but rather how the two are paired.

Both the processor and the graphics card are built into the same chip and both tap into that 8GB of DDR5 memory at once—it’s a “unified memory” setup as opposed to the system your PC uses, with the CPU utilizing your DDR3 system memory and your GPU harnessing the more robust GDDR5.

What does this mean? Basically it means that the two chips will be able to communicate with one another much faster and more efficiently than in a traditional PC set-up. Combine this with the high-bandwidth GDDR5 memory and the fact that much of the traditional CPU tasks will be offloaded to the GPU, and you have a machine that you simply cannot compare to a modern PC.

basically the ps4 is better and more efficient for doing graphically advanced games now than the regular pc with off the shelf parts available at the moment. it doesnt matter how many video cards and ddr3 ram you cram in your pc, the ps4 can outdo it in a lot of situations. the ps4 is not only more convenient to spectate your mates, help them play a game, stream videos to the internet, cross chat with ps4 from my mobile phone or another ps4, its better than any gaming pc for technologically advance video games. ps4 is my pick because i dont have to deal with BSOD, steam, origin, uplay not loading so i can play my games. no risk of viruses to corrupt my games and all sorts i have to deal with when gaming on a pc.

the matey did say deep down is running on ps4

Finally an article that explains it really well ... Thanks Forbes for making this article.

Bottom line is ... it's not even about building a beastly rig for as cheap as dirt or $$$$ but its about the games.

Sequel/Prequel of Killzone, Uncharted, Final Fantasy, Ratchet and Clank, Metal Gear Solid, Starhawk, Gran Turismo, Last of Us and so many more exclusive Playstation 4 games that I'm totally hyped/excited about ... and these exclusive games will never be released/available on PC.

So whats the point of having a beastly PC when you don't have anything exciting to play on except some selected multiplats (which will be releasing on consoles anyway).

Poor article. AWFUL title.

No, you cannot build a PC exactly the same as PS4. But to suggest that top end PC hardware is disadvantaged against PS4 hardware wise...sheesh.

For example the article actually downplays the idea of 6GB GDDR5 video memory on a Titan graphics card, as if PS4 has more. How does it?

That 6GB of GDDR5 on Titan is dedicated. Just for video memory. When PS4 is running with its OS overhead it might have 6-7GB of memory for the whole system. Shared. No PS4 game will use 6GB of memory just for video. Maybe 3-4 tops because for system use you can expect a rough but not exact 50/50 split in video/system memory requirements. Cheaper cards have 3-4Gb of video memory on them now.

PC has system memory in addition, which is typically DDR3 and lower latency than GDDR5- that is useful for a CPU. Latency matters for CPUs. Adding raw bandwidth at the cost of latency nets no real gain in general CPU performance. You can easily dump 8GB+ low latency system memory on a PC motherboard, and have huge bandwidth video memory on the graphics card. Best of both worlds.

Titan also has a ridiculous amount of memory bandwidth, like 100GB/s+ more than PS4. Cheaper cards also have similar levels.

But yet again, this amount on Titan is dedicated, utterly and completely for video purposes. PS3 has to SHARE less, between all the processors onboard. A good modern PC CPU can add another 20GB/s+ dedicated for the CPU.

Titan is hugely overpriced for its actual performance right now (25 percent faster than say 7970 gigahertz, 3 times as expensive), because it is a premium part. That level of performance or close to it at least WON'T be such a huge price by the time PS4 launches in all territories.

"Again, what Sony has done with the PS4 is something that PC builders simply cannot do yet"- referring to an APU design.

Ummm...PC has had APU designs for well over a year now.

The point WHY they aren't in high end PC gaming machines is that it is still much much faster to have separate dies connected by a bus even if that bus doesn't have great latency.

The latency gains of two smaller chips on the same die absolutely does not make up for the potential of two much larger, individually faster chips connected by a PCIe bus. It helps, but its not a magic bullet!

No consoles don't need Windows. But then consoles can't really function as you everyday PC you probably need/want to use either.

Going into the price side is the most dangerous aspect of this article. We aren't absolutely certain of the machine's pricepoint. I have read estimates anywhere from $299, up to $599.

Not only that, there has been A LOT of talk about potential increase in the cost of console games, which surely makes sense.

PS4 will no doubt be able to outperform a comparably priced PC on games when it launches but if the games are considerably more expensive and you end up buying legacy titles again you want because there is literally no backwards compatibility then it could quickly wipe out whatever you might save on the hardware.

There is much debate over this, but in my opinion the article is of very poor quality and my post here is more useful and accurate....

Ju  +   520d ago
And here we go again. Read the article again (yes, you, Vulcan).

He never said that it will top a state of the art top level PC. He never said that APUs have never done before (he clearly pointed out it's widely used in mobile and PCs have APUs for a while now).

He simple points out that with that specific architecture you do not have to follow the path of the PC; with one most important factor: no PCIe and the close relation ship of GPU and CPU which you simply don't have on the PC (yet).

It's not a PC. It's not running a windows OS and it does not have the limitations what a (stock) OpenGL or DirectX API enforces. Simple. No matter if it uses the same parts or not.

Will it ever beat a Titan and 8 core I7, ever? No, probably not. But it allows you to address issues in a way a PC (running a current desktop OS) cannot. How is this so hard to accept? And for the same bang (right now) you can't build a machine which performs and costs the same.

One more note: I think (and hope) that AMD, riding this wave, will release a 4+ Core APU with a faster GPU (79xx) and GDDR on the MOBO. I am waiting for that, actually. I want just that. Just so there is no confusion. It would be a great asset; and still limited by the stupid win API ;) But it's on my bucket list as a companion for the PS4.

@Ju:

Article title: You Can't Build A PS4: Why Sony's Next Console Is Truly Next-Gen And Your PC Isn't.

PC doesn't have generations as such, but already has hardware that far surpasses PS4. The title is misleading. Strike 1.

The cost evaluations are based on unknown factors, and conveniently overlook other important aspects. Strike 2.

"Titan.....has just 6GB of GDDR5 RAM"

Just? JUST? Infers such an amount is trivial. PS4 won't even be able to call upon such an amount dedicated to video in games as I said! Strike 3.

"GDDR5.......in the PS4 this will translate to a substantial performance boost."

Boost? Over what? This suggests he was talking about a baseline example, a comparison if you will to a PC with DDR3 system memory. He only mentioned Titan, and Titan has faster memory and more bandwidth. So it isn't a boost over that. He means the CPU, which is what he is inferring gets a boost from GDDR5.

No, it doesn't really. GDDR5 sucks bad for CPU memory. Cache is included in CPUs to avoid bad latency from system memory, that is low latency memory let alone GDDR5! Latency (to main memory) would pretty much cancel out bandwidth gains, as I said. Sony's reasons for unifying this is simplicity and cost and supply chain and manufacturing etc. Not performance over having lower latency for the CPU. He can't even understand why it would be chosen as such, as a compromise.

I could go on dismantling the article just for you Ju, but why bother.

It is fundamentally defective.

Looking top upgrade to Haswell/Maxwell next year, as I'm going over my brainstorm for the next big upgrade, I'll probably sell this PC for 700-800 bucks, minus the hard drive.

Now, witth that said above, I'm going to pick up a PS4 pre-order the minute it goes live, I've got my phone with an alert that will tell me when, from Amazon and it's logged into Amazon too, so I can make that instant buy. 500 bucks is my budget.

Make it happen, Sony.

Gaming rigs can be alot of fun and with upgrades the sky is the limit. The reason I switched to consoles was no time/ money to keep up with pc gaming. Consoles have limits but let the developers find it I just want pay and play.
Therefore ps4 compared to a 1000 dollar pc = great value to me ... Or whatever a comparable pc goes for plus upgrading virus, hardware, etc is annoying unless you have time to really get into it. Then itcan be fun.
cellmember  +   521d ago
what a load of rubbish. You could say a similar thing about any past console of the time but look how things turned out. A high end PC of today is far beyond the capabilities of a ps4. The architecture of how the ps4 is configured will only take it so far. 8GB of GDDR 5 unified memory is the only thing respectable in the ps4 specs. Both the CPU and likely GPU of the ps4 at a pc level are considered below mid range and that is just today. When the ps4 is actually released pc technology would of evolved even further. The reality is no console will ever surpass a high end PC and any one with common sense knows this. You buy a ps4 for its games, its services , ease of use and because its a playstation its that simple.
kingrev  +   521d ago
I agree PCs are and always be more powerful than consoles but tell me one thing, where are the PC exclusives? so far multi platform games like crysis 3 and far cry 3 are the only games that are actually giving expensive PCs a run for its money, but games like GoW, Uncharted, Last of us, Gran Turismo wont be seeing the light on PCs which is a shame because those games have stunning graphics but the PCs will never get the chance to run them, so basically you will be paying thousands of dollars just to play a few games that might look slightly better in the long run which in my opinion just sucks, because it will take atleast two years to get to that point or even more.
HappyGaming  +   521d ago
And one more thing when you compare specs for specs you will see one thing. No PC built with PS3 specs could run a game like The Last of Us on 512mb of RAM. So when did we forget all of the sudden what happened last gen and start comparing the PS4 CPU and GPU to a standard PC?
kayoss  +   520d ago
Yes a high end PC will always far beyond the capabilities of a PS4 and any other console. But how much are you paying for that high end PC? $1000? $1500? or $2000? Thats the problem with you PC gamers who bashes consoles. Everyone with a freakin brain knows that a High end PC is better then any console out there, but at what cost? People are already complaining about the PS3 being too expensive, if Sony were to built a console that is equal to a high end PC how much would it cost? I use to play PC games but constant upgrading just to simply enjoy a game got to me. I bought a console to enjoy hassle free of making sure that i have the correct spec to play a game.
Chinkyinc18  +   520d ago
@kayoss
How much are you willing to pay for console games? $60, probably $70 for the next gen? I have made back all the money I put into my PC though the sales of PC game. I haven't paid more than $15 for AAA games in years. As of late, prices are getting even better with online moogle like Amazon trying to to compete with Steam and such. Most new games that you preorder on console maybe have a 10 dollar drop in price for incentive, but with most PC preorders, if you do some searching, can be netted in for $30 dollars. So yay, have fun paying extra money for the console version cause Sony, MS, and Nintendo want their part of the cash. Oh yeah, we PC gamer have a tendency to 'UPGRADE' when new tech comes out instead of dropping another half a G on a new console or rig, so the hit on our finances are probably easier to absorb. I love my Playstation, but I don't like the money grabbers behind the company.

@Chinkyinc18 that game price argument is old and nonsense. New pc games are retailing at the exact same price as consoles. How much will crysis 3 be? 60$. They have announced ps4 games would stay 60 or less but your going to try to say 70. All games have sales when you go to amazon and other sites. Plus on your pc can you get used games or gamefly. Everyone can hold out to buy games until they are on sale.

I've never seen a game on console drop past $20 on sale. Those same games on sale for $20 drop as low as $5 on Steam and Amazon on a regular basis. I didn't say that console games don't go on sale, but they can never match the sale prices of their PC counterpart. Plus, games stores don't have daily deals or weekend deals or free weekends, so on, so on. Why by used when I can get new for cheaper?

Ok so for 500 euros you have something similar to the PS4. Then why not buy a PS4 when it will likely be around the same price? And then you can play Crysis 3 and you can play all the PS4 exclusives on top and you can have the seamless connectivity.

No steam, no origin, no uplay.

One network where all your friends are and you can message no matter what game they are playing?

Simply just a box for roughly the same price as your PC roughly the same graphics but play games and offers a dozens of services that are based JUST around games.

What is so wrong with having a system that is dedicated to gaming?
Oh_Yeah  +   521d ago
@Gumtrol it's always nice having a Sony console for their 1st party exclusives and for the console games that don't make it to pc like Red Dead Redemption . I've mainly been a console gamer myself but Pcs are best for multiplats 1. You'll never have to worry about backwards compatibility 2. You can mod games to extend them/ make them look better,.. Change things you can't on a locked down console 3. Games can be found cheaper and it's cheaper overall to do pc gaming 4. Pcs do everything no restrictions.. You can play wii games, snes games, dreamcast games, PS2 games etc all the systems except ps3,xbox 360 and 3DS are playable through emulation.. Overall it's cheaper in the long run.. You buy an 800$ pc and you might have to upgrade it after 6-7 years to keep up just like a console but that upgrade doesn't have to cost you big bucks, maybe 300$ max to pull off better performance than upcoming consoles. plus it's an all in one device.. Movies, games, work, surfing the Web..whatever you want.. Where as consoles once theyre old...they are old all you have it for is a blu ray player/ old game player and a Web surfer.

I hope your joking? The GTX Titan has 6gb GDDR5 RAM dedicated entirely to the gpu. The PS4 has to share 8gb between cpu and gpu. Most computers now have 16gb DDR3 ram just for the cpu alone at 1600mhz and upwards speed. Memory isn't the most important thing with graphics cards. The speed of the gpu is. The PS4 gpu is equivalent to a GTX 660 in speed at 1.84 teraflops single precision. The GTX Titan is 4.5 teraflops single precision and the GTX 680 is 2.5. Also, the cpu in the PS4 is poor in comparison to the i7. Probably will run at 3.2ghz whereas on a pc, unlocked i7s can be overclocked to over 5ghz. Not to mention that on PC, you could have three GTX Titans on the same motherboard. The PS4 is good for a console but it can't touch what modern high end pcs are capable of. Though if it releases for 500 euro, its still a very good deal and its games and online features will be its primary attraction.

Something most people will never realize is that consoles may use weaker hardware but the hardware in console have a massive focus since its dedicated and they pull serious power from it. On a PC the hardware is never fully optimized because its not dedicated and that mean the efficiency rate is bad and most of the power is wasted.

Optimization means **** all at best. The 360 and Ps3 still haven't beat a 8800GTX. Even with 7 years of 'optimization'.

Ram means even less than **** all. Going from 4-8 gigs will NOT improve games. Again...Sony would not need more than 4 gigs for the hardware they are putting in. Ever.

*sigh*

First and foremost, you'll never use over 4 GB of VRAM running a video game. The PS4 probably won't even use 3GBs ever since the GPU is a mid ranged one. You can't stack on AA, AF, high res (over 1080p) like a fully decked out card or an SLI set up because the GPU will choke trying to run everything. Bandwidth and capacity don't mean anything if the GPU can't process the information given fast enough.

Secondly, GDDR5 doesn't do anything for the CPU. Why do you think it's not even out yet for PCs? No one needs it at all. DDR3 possesses a memory bandwidth more than adequate enough so that the CPU doesn't hit the bandwidth cap. It hardly ever does, especially running a video game. You'll see no gains when the CPU uses GDDR5 in comparison to DDR3.

Lastly, optimization is wonderful but it doesn't mean developers have magic. KZ4 looks absolutely boss but its running at 30fps. Why you say? Because the graphics card isn't powerful enough to give a smooth experience at 60fps.

The boon to the PS4 is that I get a console that is a mainstream device, I can play with my friends and I have access to the cool exclusives that Sony dishes out.

Now I know why people spend so much money in marketing. I don't even have a gaming PC but jesus, there's more to a computer than RAM.

I tried to educate consolers about these facts too, but they seem to like to remain blind to facts. Like if you google PCIE 3.0 vs 2.0 for gaming then they will see that even at a the slower 2.0 PCIE buss, the game frames per second do not change for video cards that are PCEI 3.0 capable. Also, if they bother to google CPU ram bandwidth vs performance, then they would see that CPU's gain zero benefit from higher bandwidth ram. It is low latency that matters the most for CPU's. They also do not understand that the RAM on video cards is only for texture render storage for rendering on screens. You only need like 1.5 GB of Vram to render on a 1920*1080P screen. Higher GB is for muli-screen setups or resolutions approaching 4K. That is assuming of course that the GPU can even render such a large frame without a major performance hit.

......sigh....Just let them be ignorant of PC tech...They are consolers...Consolers just need to stick with their consoles and leave the PC crowd alone.

Another thing people tend to forget is that we can adjust the graphics settings on PC to encompass that 60fps mark if our cards our powerful enough. On the PS4 it'll be up to the developers and most of them will likely flock to the 30fps mark...

My 680 (2gb) gets a solid 60fps (vsync) on 64 player maps in BF3 on ultra while a reference 7850 max's out at a whooping 35-40. I'm not boasting at all but trying to make an example that the tech in the PS4 isn't pushing the boundries at all... the only thing that's even impressive about it is that 8gigs of GDDR5 which even then is complete overkill given the specs. Now if they change it up and put either a 7950 or 7970 in it then I would be more impressed but right now a 7850 is a entry level card and nothing worth bragging about even with whatever architecture they use with it.

Well said. Initial launch games are hard to judge, eapecially right now because i doubt their dev kits are even indicative of the final product. Wait til someone has time with it to make it really run, maximizing its benefits. Didnt one developer say that he didnt even know there was gonna b 8 gb, thought it would be 4. But they do need some games for launch. Guerilla and sucker luch, coupled with naughty dog, sony santa monica, media molecule for first party, capcom, ubisoft, activision, EA etc. Will be able to provide us with enough great games to keep us interested for the first 2 yrs while developers begin to dig into this machine. But, it wont be until 2015 that we begin to see what it can really do. This is fine because so many great developers will habe a much easier time putting games on this system. Amd pc gamers should be happy because now developers can spend more time on their game and less figuring out how to make a worthy version for alien cell hardware.

I believe those games could have all been running on the PS4. Why? Because even though all of it looked great there was nothing shown that couldn't run on a current gaming PC that was shown. If anything I expect those graphics to get better by release than what was shown.

@ Dylila : I said what you just said that the PS4 hardware will be better optomised than PC hardware but I got a lot of disagrees even though Sony worked hard to make sure the hardware works best for gaming. I totally agree with you even though I do 99% of my gaming on my high end PC.

The problem with Pc Gaming is obvious
Some drivers dont work, constantly upgrade and wasting Money you could use to buy games instead.

With Ps4 you buy the Console and for at least 7 years you dont need to do anything else, just buy your games and play them everyday, online or offline.

Thats the reason i love Console Gaming.

Spoken like a true console sheep.

So much ignorance on this site when it comes to PC gaming. I play them all but some of the stuff that gets passed around as truth for PC gaming is laughable.

@lena:
No, spoken like a person that plays them all so knows the pro and cons for both. What Bar_Brothers said is simply not true. I haven't had a driver problem in probably 5 years and that was for a 10 year old product that the company didn't support any longer. I upgrade maybe every 3-4 years and it costs about $300-$400 but I also use my PC for many other things than just gaming so it's a win-win. I also get to use whatever control scheme I like, have mod support, and have access to many games that console don't have.

I enjoy my consoles just as much as the PC. You don't see me putting them down. All I'm doing is calling out the ignorance of PC gaming.

I haven't had driver problems in about 3-4 years myself.

Also- I typically build a high end PC every two years. Not because I have to. But because I am a tech whore. My wife can play all games maxed out on my old machine that was a phenom 965,8gig RAM, and an HD5870. And that machine is over 3 years old. More like 4 years old now.

This site has a lot of weird and backward information when it comes to PC gaming.
Allsystemgamer  +   521d ago
I haven't upgraded my PC in 3 years and I'm still maxing all my games. My 2nd ps3 just died this week (luckily I have a replacement plan) and I've been through 5 360s.

The wasting money on upgrades ONLY applies to people who want to stay up to date constantly. My last upgrade 3 years ago was $250. I see no need to upgrade any time soon.

Plus the average console game costs $15 more per game than a PC game.

I STILL don't get why you console fanboys keep making things up. PC gaming is only expensive if you MAKE it expensive.

Ill be getting a ps4 day 1 but please stop with the whole drivers never work/ always upgrading/ PC has no games crap because its utterly false.

You don't have to play at max, plus if the upgrade was on a gfx card then that was plenty for W2 without a few bells and whistles (mostly SS or whatever they called it, forgot as not perfect). Old CPUs from 2-3 generations ago are still perfect for anything today (especially if i7).

PC players had nothing to do with the console war, I mean just look at the name Cooooonnsssssoollleee Waaaaaarr. PC players butted into the conversation because they felt ignored and wanted to prove a point, same thing with Nintendo fanboys.

This whole thing started with Xbox 360 and PS3. 360 fanboys went to Youtube and called the PS3 a paper weight, and said nothing the Ps3 has will ever look as good as Gears of war, PS3 fanboys replied and that's who the fight should of been between, because they had a real reason to disagree with eachother.

Even to this day after all the PC players have done, console gamers barely care about them. How many comments do you see on a WOW video are from console players hating on it 0.0000001%. PC fanboys want attention, that's all, they wanna be better than everyone else, they can't live without that recognition.

@telekeneticmantis

Console Wars didn't start with Xbox 360 vs PS3. It started way before that. The first thing I remember was Nintendo vs SEGA. That was a LOOOONG time ago. PC gamers always have to prove a point. Their point is that PC gaming is superior and nothing comes close and if you don't game on PC than you are not a gamer, in fact you are a sub-human. That is their point.

It's so expensive! (PC games are cheaper, always on sale)

Upgrading all the time! (Nope. Only those who want top of the line 24/7. Cards from 3-4 years ago still max the best games today)

Drivers and fidgeting with settings is annoying! (Haven't done that for years. Plus...doesn't the ps3 constantly have updates all the time? Yes it does. I have one.)

It has no games lol PC gaming sukzzzz (his year alone the platform has 50+ exclusives plus games that are next to impossible/ don't play well on consoles)

@Allsystemgamer

I think at this point it is futile to even post a response to consolers. The consolers are too ignorant to understand what you said. I use my Xbox 360 controller on the PC to play the following: Trine 2, Super Meat Boy, Alice: Madness Returns, The Cave, Darksiders 2, and Darksiders. The ony time I use my K/M is for FPS games, RPG's or MMO's. I did not have to install any driver to make the 360 controller work. Windows 7 immediately recognized the controller and the games I played automatically mapped the proper keys for the controls in the games. Hell, even STEAM's big picture mode maps the xbox 360 controller keys correctly!!

Steam had a THQ publisher sell off where I bought 10 games that are AAA titles for $20!! Sega also had a publisher pack that included Sega Dreamcast Collection that they released for PC for only $30!! Let's also not forget about the many great Indie games out there!

sigh....Consolers will never understand... Just let them say what they want....Ignorance can only be cured when someone is willing to learn..

To be honest seeing all these comments, all fanboys of this or that piece of hardware or company need to get a life and stop ranting like cave men. Im a console and pc man myself and its simple a console you buy once for x amount of years and only need games and a few accessories but are somewhat limited to no mods, dlc only stuff etc...
Although pc wise if you have the money you can build a powerhouse get all these great custom mods, higher graphics more framerate etc... and is a more community driven scene as a whole.

So the ps4 is more efficient? Obviously they made the chipset they way they did to save money. Efficiency does not beat out raw force. I guess most console gamers do not know enough about tech to actually know what the article is saying. I do not want tech like the ps4. If that is the future of motherboards then we will be forced to upgrade everything based on an established chip-set and I love customization. It is true, you cannot build a ps4. As a PC gamer, why would I want to? O.o I like my separate gfx card, Ram, and processor. I do not want them clumped together. Again, you can't currently build a ps4. But you can build systems that totally stomp on it with parts that go beyond the ps4. Next gen is current gen for pc gamers. A console gamer that simply games (if lucky) at 1080p doesn't know.

And the tech for the ps4 has been established...what of the new pc tech that is coming out? So not only is pc gaming already more advanced but we don't have to wait 8 year-10 year cycles for new tech. This is why PC gamers have the lead all the time.

So in conclusion, yes, pc gamers cannot build a custom chipset like the ps4 but we can definitely build something better. Just saying.

But the ps4 definitely looks awesome compared to its ancestor. At the end of the day we all profit from hardware advances.

But there are certain franchises only available on the PS platform that I really enjoy and can't play anywhere else like GoW, UC, Sly, R & C, KZ and games like Heavy Rain and Beyond that is coming out later this year. That is just a handful out of alot of IP's only available on the PS.

Just purchased a custom built gaming rig for £800 not just for games but dev work too and as stunning as this PC is games running at full 1080p 60+FPS etc I think the ps4 will be my main gaming platform I know the games are going to be amazing just look how gorgeous Sony first party games are on the ps3. But it's not just that I think it'll be the socially integrated os that's gonna be the big thing next gen. Just look at the iPhone it's just a phone a good looking one at that but it was the OS that caught on and the whole user interaction with that device people want that experience they want more interaction, to a certain extent that's why the kinect has done as well as It has it gives users a new way to interact...
Obviously we've only had a glimpse at what Sony are offering next gen and I can't wait to see what else they're bringing to the table... Focus squarely on Microsoft now if their hardware isn't as powerful as Sonys but has strong networking capabilities with lots of multitasking programmes ie, TV tuner/DVR/Bluray etc ill give it some thought but maybe not at launch ill see how the services they offer evolve over the first year.

Can we all just be friends now?

I lol'd! My current PC is better. Granted, it's a beast. I'm also not anti-console. I've owned all 3 playstations. Just saying, I call bullsh!t.

I'm just gonna say who really cares the moment PS4 is released it is already behind. More powerful cards are not gonna stop being developed for the PC. I am not anti-console either.
