The Games will decide how powerful the console is.
Let it play Fantasy JRPG bigger than Skrim, with airship.

Just like Uncharted, Killzone and The Last of Us did on PS3. Only on Playstation, can't wait to see what Sony developers do on PS4.

Xbox One and PS4 are both next gen, but no one at this point should disagree with the fact that PS4 is the most powerful and first party titles will set new standards!

@Masterdon:

Explain how it is overpriced.

It is $299

Both the PSP and PS Vita were $299 at launch and the SHIELD is several times more powerful than the Vita, which currently is only $50 less and doesn't even have built in flash storage.

Seems to me you are just a typical butthurt Sony fanbrat who cannot handle potential competition, just because SHIELD isn't made by Sony you call it overpriced or garbage or a joke, etc, etc.

It's about time someone released a well spec'd, well priced gaming focused tablet with proper game controls.

Too bad the low IQ Sony fanbrats that infest N4G are unable to recognize a good thing, just because it is released by a company other than Sony.

Would Nvidia Shield cost the same as Vita if it was released at the same time as Vita?
Dasteru  +   435d ago
@GrandTheftZamboni:

Probably not given the hardware in it would have been considered alot more advanced at the time, however, it isn't really relevant.

The Vita is still selling for $250 now, the SHIELD is only $50 more despite having much more powerful hardware, and 16GB of built in storage space. If Sony were to release a device identical to the SHIELD right now, it would likely cost $400.

NS can't play S.
GrandTheftZamboni  +   435d ago
@dasteru

Vita might drop by $50 when Shield is released. We can speculate how much it will be then. At least it deserves to sell for more because apparently Nvidia didn't invest (much) into aesthetics of their handheld. Not everybody cares about the looks, but some of us who do, understand that it cost money to design a good looking product.
sklorbit  +   435d ago
@dasteru:

There is a reason nobody is talking about shield. It isnt a compelling device, and neither is the ps vita for that matter. Shield is going to fail and fade into obscurity

Come back to this comment after shield releases and tell me I was wrong, I would love to be... but i wont be.
Eddie20101  +   435d ago
@ dasturu

Both are probably overpriced for the handheld market.

As far as NS being more powerful than PS Vita there's nothing available that shows that its more powerful. There's really no big third party games for it. The few third party games that are available are mostly just cash grabs.

PS Vita not selling through the roof so I think the NS will sell even less.

Why do you assume it's Sony fanboys that are against it rather Microsoft fanboys I mean the NS Is a Google Android system.

@Eddie20101:

"Why do you assume it's Sony fanboys that are against it rather Microsoft fanboys"

Because N4G is notoriously pro Sony, the Sony fanboys outnumber MS fanboys like 100:1 on here.

Also this is the only site that i know of that constantly hates on the SHIELD, most other sites i have seen news about the SHIELD, there is near universal excitement for it. Hardly anyone on other sites ever says it is overpriced or that it will fail.

It isn't just the SHIELD either, i have been on N4G for probably 5+ years and it is very common for people to downplay anything that isn't a Sony product. It is nearly a national sport on this site, insult anything that isn't Sony, Praise everything that is and have "Well said" or "intelligent" bubbles handed out to you like candy. Free pass to 10-bubble land.
Eddie20101  +   434d ago
@Dasteru

There are just as many MS fanboys on here, there just to darn narcissistic to know that they are fanboys. Some are just plain childish and stupid. Some just hate anything that is a Sony product, but they swear they are not fanboys.

I have own nearly every system including the Xbox, and Xbox 360. I was very gun ho about the Xbox and even was about the Xbox 360 in the beginning, but the media, the Xbox community, Microsoft themselves kinda soured my liking of them.

I'm a gamer not a fanboy, I own and play all the consoles and have two very decent PC's that I built and play lots of games on. I own a lot of games on all systems.

My dislike of one company that makes consoles does not make me a fanboy, nor does it make any other person who feels the same a fanboy. Nor do I think everyone has to feel the same way I do.

We have our preferences for gaming and you have your's and while I'll admit to SOME players being overly fanatical, it isn't all players and it certainly isn't just Sony players..

Absurd. PCs play games and they are devices, so it is factually wrong to say that the PS4 is the most powerful gaming device ever conceived.

They should have said, "PS4 is the most powerful home console ever created" and then it would have been true.

@starchild, a console is or should be mostly dedicated to games. A PC (even a gaming PC) is still designed to do other tasks. A PC is like a phone. You don't consider it a portable gaming device, you consider it a phone.

I'm having a little problem with what you wrote; are you:

*warning someone that saying "unlimited power" in respect to the PS4 that they should "know" that lightning will come from your fingers

*saying that "now" you have to have lightning bolts as a requirement to speaking about the PS4

*or are you addressing it like "no"; as if merely mentioning unlimited power in regards to the PS4's power automatically grants you lightning bolts?

Technically gaming pc's are also gaming devices.
Because people buy those for gaming, not for other things.
But yeah, they have the specs, but they also had that with the ps3.
Lets see if the architecture will hold up against the competition.

Specs are not the whole story, i thought people would have learned that by now.

You keep telling yourself that, hope it helps you sleep better at night.

The architecture is confirmed to be extremely easy to develop for, time to triangle went down from 9-12 months on ps3 to 1-2 months on ps4. Octodad was running on ps4 in less then a month they had Warframe's E3 build in 3 months. Microsoft has the harder to develop for architecture this time around with the ESRAM.

So yes specs are the whole story. Keep believing in fairytales like the power of the clowd and super esram.

yes, lemme tell you how specs are the only thing that will decide the quality of games, not like some developers are not as talented as others or anything, oh, and how about those budgets, they DEFINITELY aren't a deciding factor, everything on ps4 will be triple A just because
DigitalRaptor  +   436d ago
A PC is a PC. Personal. Your PC can be whatever you make it. Your console cannot, which is why specs are incredibly important.

Xbox One is what Microsoft has made it to be through where they see their priorities to be. Not being a dedicated gaming device is pretty set in stone.

PS4 is a dedicated gaming device because Sony has leveraged its strengths in specification towards gaming and we already know that PS4 is going to lead the charge in ease of development. Developers have already spoken out and so has Cerny with all we need to know.

Ok, as an owner of PS1, PS2, PS3, PSP, I must disagree. The most powerful gaming device still remains PC. It is easily the most powerful console for sure, but anyone who wants the most premium experience still should go for high end PC.

Sorry, A custom built PC with a I7 3960X, 16gb of Ram, and a GTX Titan is the most powerful gaming device one can conceived. Consoles don't stand a chance.
Foxgod  +   436d ago
A lot of gaming motherboards can even handle 24 GB of ram, combine that with 4GB of vram, en you have 28GB of ram, that is much faster then the ram in consoles in both latency and bandwidth.
Dasteru  +   436d ago
Gaming mobo's have supported 24GB ram for over 4 years now.

http://hothardware.com/News...

There are a couple dozen boards that support 64GB of ram and several that support dual and even quad physical CPUs.

Money no option, i could theoretically build a system with 32 CPU cores, 128GB of ram & 4 Titan GPUs with 6GB of Vram. 16 TFlops of compute power just from the Titan GPUs alone.

@TIER1xWOLFPACKx:

The 7990 is a dual GPU card, the Titan is a single GPU, 2 Titans is much more powerful than a single 7990, also you can have up to 4 Titans in a single system while you can only have 2 7990s.

Why is it all about cost now?

If there was a $200 console that was weaker than the Wii U would you buy it just because it is cheaper?

Yes, the upfront cost is somewhat higher to get a good gaming PC, but when you factor in the $50 a year you have to pay to play your games online the cost of PC and consoles reaches near parity.

Then when you factor in the cost of games, the PC easily becomes the more affordable platform over the long term.

But even if it just straight costed more to game on PC I would do it.

Wouldn't it be more powerful to have a 7990 instead of a titan

You console fanboys are so ignorant.

Gaming PCs ARE meant for gaming.

And as for user interfaces for gaming not existing on the PC, give me a break. I guess you've never used Steam? Booting up into Steam's Big Picture mode gives you a totally game focused user interface. It's actually more game focused than the console interfaces.

That's not a mass produced 'gaming device' that's a bespoke, powerful multi-function unit.

I have a 4.5ghz I7, GTX780@over titan speeds ands 16GB ram. Yeah it's great, and will be awesome with oculus rift in future but a PS4 does "stand a chance" because of the way it's exclusives especially hit the hardware doing things we sometimes don't even see on PC (though we could nobody bothers). The exclusive games are why the PS4 has win written all over it, the fact it's got a great spec for the price is just a bonus :)

PC+PS4 combo FTW!

edit @ all the others' missing the point - the PS4 is a GAMING "DEVICE" that was mass produced to be just that. A PC is not a conceived mass market gaming device!! PC just happens to be bloody good and super powerful FOR games among other things.

Currently, the gaming PC holds that spot, and won't be knocked off for decades to come.

PC wins at the end of the day.
Ulf  +   436d ago
Is there a gaming PC standard that could be labeled as a "device"? Without that standard there is no such PC gaming device, and PC developers are forced to target i5s with HD4000 GPUs and 2 GB of 1333 as their minimum spec.

All you really get from a better PC, then, is more pixels, and sometimes better textures, if the developer was feeling generous.

A pc can be used for anything you want to use it for, a pc wasn't made for the sole purpose of being used as a musical instrument, but you'd be hard pressed to not find one used in any major music studio in the world. A pc is as valid as a gaming device as a console is, the difference is a console can do far less.

If a pc wasn't a gaming device it wouldn't have been used for gaming for decades. The first video games were made on guess what....

Gara reiterated that Sony's main goal with the PS4 was to deliver the most powerful console at a price that gamers consider to be acceptable" with further

underlining its perceived status as the next-gen games console designed exclusively for gamers.

Even a PC with a 660ti and i5 3570k is more powerful than the PS4...

But can you build a PC with that for 399.99?
cunnilumpkin  +   435d ago
ps4 is $400 upfront, if you want to game online for the next 8 years with it, add another $400, now add in the extra $10-$30 more per game you will pay, say buying 20 games a year over 8 years that's 160 games, at $15 extra per game (and that is being very generous)

that's at LEAST $2400 dollars more you will spend just on games on ps4 vs pc

so over 8 years, your "$400" console, is going to cost you over $3200

you could build 3 gaming rigs that would f'ing DESTROY the ps4 for that

or you could build one amazing pc, and buy 500 games and still spend less than you would buying an inferior console and only getting 160 games

keep telling yourself that console is cheaper
