There going to do the only thing they can do...

Show their hand - And I wish them the best because SONY came out hard, no to mention PS4 is a Monster...

So they got there work cut out for them, but don't write of Microsoft just yet, because they could surprise us, if the specs that got leaked are true...

Then they are in trouble because at least on paper that looked like a much weaker system then PS4

-But who knows they could have leaked that to throw SONY off, I guess we will see, -but I won't count Microsoft out because I know they won't just lay down and let SONY have the GAMING Industry....

Hahaha.

That was funny!

Can't wait to take a shit and my friends no. LOL

WarThunder1631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

That video was so funny!

MS response will be Kinect 2.0
MS said: Kinect is our next gen!

http://www.destructoid.com/...

Lol @ Ballmer http://www.youtube.com/watc...

@black911 Look at the disagree! Lmao! MS fangirls in damage control.

Skips1631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

^^^

Wow, Microsoft's CEO actually said that.

Ballmer: "Kinect is the Xbox 360's 'next generation"

Seems like SuperDae's leaks of the NextBox needing Kinect to function is looking more and more legit.

RuleofOne343 1631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

l almost agreed with you but what gets me is that everyone keeps forgetting that MS is a software maker , so even if the so called rumours specs are true can you imagine what software they could've or have written, created to up the ante. JMT

Saigon1631d ago

I kind of agree with that, but guess what...you need the proper hardware to execute the software...

greenpowerz1631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

When did MSFT reveal the 720? how do you know on paper it's the weaker console? Sony doesn't even have a console troll LOL.

LMAO PS4 had rumors and fanboys said they were just rumors and Sony did announce different specs from the rumors of PS4 but MSFT is stuck with the rumors PS3 fanboys choose LMAO

PS4 spec rumors before the PS4 reveal...
Basically the same except the RAM was changed from 4 gig to 8 gigs
http://www.vgleaks.com/worl...

8 core CPU in the 720
“The Durango CPU is structured as two modules. A module contains four x64 cores, each running a single thread at 1.6 GHz. Each core contains a 32 KB instruction cache (I-cache) and a 32 KB data cache (D-cache), and the 4 cores in each module share a 2 MB level 2 (L2) cache. In total, the modules "

VGleaks was almost dead on...This same sight has 720 specs too. 720 CPU http://www.vgleaks.com/dura... This seems to be the most accurate site for rumors so far and only the 720 CPU has been shown so how in the heck do you know the 720 is much weaker?

Can't wait to find out the rest of the 720's specs PS3 fanboys will be on meltdown.

Hail PS3! Praise the lord...

What kind of nut runs around using a PS3 flag in ever comment. Dam dude consoles are just toys LMAO Get a life

awesomeperson1631d ago

"Dam dude consoles are just toys LMAO Get a life"

Oh, the irony.

I am interested to see Microsoft's specs for the next XBOX, it will be interesting to see what they showcase.

zebramocha1631d ago

@green even though they have similar CPU,from various threads I've seen,the ps4 has a stronger gpu,the ram is faster and its overall design is less complicated than the rumored xbox 720.

jmac531631d ago

@zebramocha These rumors are based off of leaks from a year ago. I am sure the specs have changed since then. The PS4 rumors leaked much closer to when the system was unveiled.

dcbronco1631d ago

Actually it doesn't sound any more complicated. It seems that it has some built-in components that will make it faster than it seems on paper. Plus there have been three different spec leaks on the 720. The one from MS last Summer, the one from Super and the split design. The reality is we don't know what it will have and we don't know what the extra parts will do. We don't even know what the PS4 parts will do. They only announce what the GPU was capable of.

Saigon1631d ago

Maybe you should be using the edge reported leeks or even kotaku. They seem to be spot on with everything so far.

DoesUs1631d ago

My god you must live a sheltered life. You do realise VGLeaks has detailed breakdowns of everything yes? Including the GPU in both? The GPU in the PS4 is stronger by quite a margin. The memory in the PS4 is vastly superior to what MS has chosen. The only similarities lie in the CPU which are basically awash. Both are AMD Jaguar based, the same specs you are posting. This is now common knowledge regardless of if MS has unveiled or not. Nothing is changing. The egg on you face is going to be quite something. It's interesting you keep posting VGLeaks yet clearly you have not delved deeper into the site. You claim people should get a life, have you seen your post history since the PS4 announcement? Good grief.

@DoesUs Amen to that brother

Hellsvacancy1631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

Didnt MS send the FBI loose on the guy who leaked the "supposed" specs for the 720 a while back?

Its probably safe to say that those specs are probably real then, Sony didnt do the same did they, because the official specs were not released

kenshiro1001631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

Just stop it green. Seriously. You tell people get a life when you're acting like the biggest fanboy on the site.

Like I said, if Microsoft let's their fanbase down, its curtains for them.

Showtime: PS4 rumoured at 1.84TF, Xbox 720 at 1.23TF

Here we go. VG247 has been told that PlayStation 4 has a 50% raw power advantage over Xbox 720, based on information out of CES.

If true, these numbers mean PlayStation 4 will have a 50% raw, computational power advantage over Xbox 720.

If latest rumours regarding next generation hardware are to be believed, the next PlayStation is to be significantly more powerful that the next Xbox.

Developer sources, speaking after meetings at CES, have told VG247 that the next PlayStation, codenamed Orbis, will have a run-capability of 1.84 teraflops. Conversely, the next Xbox, codenamed Durango, will be able to achieve 1.23 teraflops.

If true, these numbers mean PlayStation 4 will have a 50% raw, computational power advantage over Xbox 720.

While PS4 will have greater grunt that 720, however, the Microsoft machine has significantly more RAM at 8Gb, we’ve been told. Our source said that 3Gb is reserved for the OS, apps and security, leaving 4-5Gb for games.

Orbis will have 4Gb of RAM, said our source, of which 1Gb will be reserved for for OS, security and apps, leaving some 3Gb for games.

Both machines will supposedly have have the ability to read 100Gb Blu-ray discs.

Durango is apparently based on the Radeon HD 8770 GPU.

PlayStation 4 has been previously rumoured to be built on AMD’s A10 APU.

It was recently claimed that the two machines are to be announced in late March. It’s widely assumed that both consoles will launch in November this year.

how?

with this..

http://gifs.gifbin.com/0120...

the PS4 has no chance.. kinect seem so fun!

http://img5.joyreactor.com/...

I will like to play that! And I don't mean the game XD

Gildarts1631d ago

The 720 leaked specs is not THAT much weaker. Teraflops have little to do with how the games will look.

AlphaJunk1631d ago

True - Sony claims the PS3 is supposed to be a 2 teraflop machine which puts its on par or slightly above their PS4 and supposedly twice the power of the 360. haha the PS3 has such overhyped specs.

punisher991631d ago

"The PS3 did not outsell the 360.
Microsoft released their official SOLD numbers while Sony gave SHIPPED numbers to make it seem like they won."

Here is the article that states "PS3 outsells 360 worldwide in total sales" NOT SHIPPED. SALES.

LOGICWINS1631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

I already know I'm getting a PS4, but wouldn't it be funny to see the reactions of N4Gers if it was revealed that the 720 was actually more powerful on paper than the PS4 lol.

Cupid_Viper_31631d ago

yeah, it would be similar to the reaction I get when I look at your bubble count.

Outside_ofthe_Box1631d ago

It'd be funny to see your reaction to it as well or rather your response to other people's reactions that is lol.

Silly gameAr1631d ago

lol yeah! That would be hilarious Logic! Bubble up!

bigrob1231631d ago

I would imagine it would go like this:

"graphics aren't everything its all about game play!"

miDnIghtEr20C_SfF1631d ago

Is the surprise at Logics bubble count because he's an xbox fan, and has lot's of bubbles? Yes, that is crazy. Everyone knows that Xbox fans bubbles look like mine!

Silly gameAr1630d ago (Edited 1630d ago )

No miDnight

It's the fact that he never has anything positive to say, and goes at other commenters like a rabid dog is why I'm confused. Something just doesn't feel right with the amount of bubbles he has. Anyone else would be bubbled down.

neoMAXMLC1629d ago

@miDnIghtEr20C_SfF

Actually, only douchebag trolls have bubbles like yours.

LOGIC may piss a lot of people off, but he ain't a douchebag. EVILDEAD360 is one of the biggest pro 360 users here and he has a very good amount of bubbles as well. Not to mention that many PS3 fanboys here have quickly lost all of their bubbles due to their douchebaggery.

Your pathetic attempt at constantly trying to convince everyone that this is a PS3 fanboy run site falls flat on its face with examples like these.

True, you can't count out MS yet. But I dunno if the media and gamers can take MS silence any long. Some sites are already claiming victory as well as Sony fans. While the majority of the media are still waiting on MS.

I've already speculated enough like 8x already. I can't say anymore, I dunno what MS will bring to the table, we gotta wait.

Knight_Crawler1631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

". But I dunno if the media and gamers can take MS silence any long."

You ever heard of the most important gaming even each year called E3? Every things has its time and place and MS not rushing to show something just shows that they are confident going into next gen - the funny thing is that if MS did announce something as soon as Sony announced the PS4, Sony fanboys would be screaming that MS is scared.

"Some sites are already claiming victory as well as Sony fans"

This sounds awfully familiar when the PS3 was announced with the CELL and Blu Rey, sites and Sony fans were saying that the 360 will be the next Dream Cast - if this gen has thought us anything is that gamers do not care about which console is the most powerful but which console can provide fun and entertainment.

Like someone below mentioned MS has its loyal fans already that will be buying a 720 and those who buy a PS4 will some time down the line get a 720 and vice versa.
