And it is, can't wait to get my hands on it

Enemy1574d ago

It's more than just a claim, it's a fact.

xHeavYx1574d ago

Nuketail, How much money do you need to spend on a gaming PC and updates? I'm sure a lot more than $400

Hydrolex1574d ago

well it is... It's not rocket science

The only competitors are X1 and Wii u

well Wii u LOL LMFO what a joke

X1, is just not as strong

So PS4 is the most powerful console

AngelicIceDiamond1574d ago

We need proof anf demostrations other than thst its just lip service.

Hydrolex1574d ago (Edited 1574d ago )

Why aren't you responding to Nuketail in his thread ? Oh wait, you need to be on top so you get more agrees. ok highschoolers

zeal0us1574d ago (Edited 1574d ago )

Good thing they used the word "console" or those hardcore pc fanatics would've been going apesh*t.

Magicite1574d ago

and still there are dumbasses who dare to disagree..

mattdillahunty1574d ago

saying "the world's most powerful console" doesn't mean much when its competition is TWO other consoles; it's not like it beat out dozens of competitors or anything. lol. i mean, of course it's going to be more powerful than any previous gen console, that really doesn't mean anything. so it's more powerful than its two current competitors...yay, i guess?

darthv721574d ago

wish they hadnt done that.

that means there is no chance of it being #1. throughout gaming history, the most powerful system has never been the one to lead the pack.

sony knows this. Its one thing to be the most powerful but proclaiming it is like automatically being awarded 2nd place or worse....3rd.

although, could this be the console gen to break that long standing trend?????

trafalger1574d ago

sony continue to push this marketing strategy and i'm not sure why? the ps3 bled them dry financially. vita isn't selling. now we hear the same marketing push on the ps4, being the most powerful console. those who crave the most powerful will support the pc.

the end result usually just adds flamewars with console fanboys. those who act like console elitists yet are the first to whine whenever the pc is mentioned.

ThanatosDMC1573d ago

RIP Nuketail. Couldnt handle all the PS4 news and super exploded his pants.

Anarki1573d ago

I find it amusing how people who haven't even used it, have saw limited screens/videos of said console could claim such bold statements. Wait until November before you make such claims guys.

The controller does look quite comfortable though, but so does the xbox ones.

Sideras1573d ago

@xHeavYx I'd say you'd need to spend about 1500 dollars for a worthwhile PC, if you just want to match the power of the PS4 you can get away with much less.
But spending 1500+ will be worthwhile imo.

I don't believe Sony is considering the PC a console anyways, if they did their statement is false.

Words are cheap. Show me!!!

ZBlacktt1574d ago (Edited 1574d ago )

A lot of hater disagrees in here, lol. Sad...

Another reason why the system is SO flawed. Of course butt hurt kids crying on their pillows because mommy said no new console for you will having them hating... Or is it the copy cat next gen console. Sony does, they flip flop copy cat, lol... Or is it the PC people, since no one PC games much anymore. They are just doing what we all do on PC nowadays, surf the net....

Either way the facts still remain.

ape0071574d ago (Edited 1574d ago )

carmack and other devs disagree as well, not haters only xD

Allsystemgamer1574d ago

No one PC games? Over 6 million steam users on at ONE time is no one?

allgamespc20121574d ago

hahaha no one pc games much anymore? maybe learn english then come here and talk shit you lil fanboy, pc gaming is growing like crazy and while the ps4 is more powerful than most office pcs it certainly isnt more powerful than mine now with my titan. remember you are using 5 gddr5 now with os and crap like that being used, so my titan has 6gddr5 plus the ram at 32 gb so it is in fact better and more powerful.

anyways, point here is that 6 million concurrent steam users will disagree with you. 5 million concurrent lol players will too, 12 million sales on diablo 3 will too, 4 million on skyrim too, digital distribution and every developer going pc as well as consoles will too. sorry kid, you have absolutely no argument in this debate since you are one dumb son of a bitch.

ZBlacktt1574d ago (Edited 1574d ago )

I was PC gaming 30 years ago ( Apple II, IIc and IIe ) and I'm dead srs. So please just go and that's all I read from your wall of mindless text.

starchild1574d ago

You are ignorant beyond belief.

PC games sales generated over 20 billion dollars in revenue last year, which is far more than any console.

PC gaming is in fact growing tremendously. At the last Game Developers Conference, far more developers reported to be working on PC games than for any console.

PC hardware and software sales have been growing over the past few years, while console hardware and software sales have been declining.

ZBlacktt1574d ago

Starchild read the thread title... read my first comment. Again hater, why are you here? You lost? IQ of a rock.

Sony Claims PS4 Is "World's Most Powerful Console"

joeorc1573d ago


"carmack and other devs disagree as well, not haters only xD"

No that is not what carmack stated, John said "i have not benchmarked both machines yet"

He was pointing out that from a developer perspective both systems are very powerfull to work with this time, because of their x86 designs. Because as a 3rd party developer, PC systems has always been in id Softs DNA

claim more like fact

what's really scary is when the guys said we are still to show games from MM, santa monica or ND

yet they are showing a lot of other stuff

ZHZ901573d ago

You do know Sony wants to save more games announcements for VGA and TGS right?

And you do know that Sony wants to show us that they give more support to Indies right?

Their's no need to be sad, if you're getting PS4 you should be happy.

showtimefolks1573d ago


who said anything about bring sad?

i know sony will be holding strong showing at TGS but that will mostly be for Japanese studios

VGA's i guess sony can announce few games to get some free TV time

should be very exciting

also i would imagine gameinformer will reveal some exclusives too, down the road

The title is misleading. SONY doesn't claim, it explicitly says that PS4 is the worlds most powerful console.

Mini05101573d ago

that's a claim... ?!
They stated or claimed. Im pretty sure the word choice is fine.

Same here buddy, same here. I preorder it on Amazon the minute they announce the price of PS4. That's how much I want this system.

RedHawkX1573d ago

yep 400 dollars for the most powerful console ever created seems like the smart choice to make.

id hate to be the idiot who cant think and chooses a crap overpriced xbox one (500) over the superior ps4..

RedHawkX1573d ago

you agree to disagree ratio is the same ratio the ps4 will outsell the xbox one. also the same ratio of how many people will be playing ps4 games online, and chatting and building a huge gaming community vs the small xbox one game community that will have rarely anyone playing online and mostly casuals lol.

H0RSE1573d ago (Edited 1573d ago )

It's a pretty baseless claim if all that power isn't utilized. I'm not saying it won't be, but anyone thinks that the PS4 is going to blow away the X1 in terms of graphic fidelity in games, you sure have a lot of wishful thinking. Overall, games will look largely similar, with significant (if any) differences being evident in exclusive titles.

Besides, boasting that you are the "world's most powerful console," is sort of liking being proud to be #2, since when it comes to hardware and processing power in games, PC is still the champ. adding the word "console" to the sentiment, is just moving the goal posts.

Mini05101573d ago (Edited 1573d ago )

for your comment above xHeavYx, uh, I think a PC does more than a console. That's perhaps why it costs a little more.

xHeavYx1573d ago

Like what? Besides, the conversation is regarding consoles, not a pc that you'll end up spending thousands of dollars to keep up with the latest settings

Mini05101573d ago (Edited 1573d ago )

lol do you even know anything about PC gaming? What updates are you talking about? In case you haven't realized, not many PC gamers spend thousands of dollars. More like $800-$1000. Someone can spend $500 if they wanted too...

And for what PC can do that consoles can't, you figure that out

xHeavYx1572d ago

You can't buy a $500 pc today and not update anything for the next 8 years, don't be delusional.
BTW, it's ok that you can't come up with anything regarding the other question,I couldn't think of anything either

Mini05101572d ago

lol. Ok Now i get it.

so your PS4 is guaranteed to work for 8 years. haha most people i know are already on their 2nd ps3 and 2nd xbox. Perhaps the 3rd one if they didn't take good care of it.

Then again, I think a PC can do more than a console.
And also, are you going to include the cost of your HDTV into this gaming package?

And no one is forcing you to upgrade. If you don't want to run everything on low settings. That's too bad. Then upgrade your computer.

Where are you going with this? Console gaming is cheaper? Hhaha that depends what you have already now. If you have a decent computer already, PC gaming is cheaper. If you already got an HDTV, consoles are cheaper.

Rivitur1574d ago

Lies show me this so called Gravity it is simply God's invisible hand keeping us from floating into space where we would meet our deaths.

Lolz at fools disagreeing with gravity.

Mini05101573d ago

Why is it not? Did this happen already? I don't think so.

Kingthrash3601574d ago

facts....are facts..its king of consoles in regards to power.

MasterCornholio1574d ago (Edited 1574d ago )

It only sucks if your a fan of the weaker console.

(looks at avatar)

That's an Xbox One controller right?

There there it will be over soon.

Motorola RAZR i

gamer20131573d ago

It only sucks that you're console has less games, features and inferior online.

DialgaMarine1574d ago

I feel like at this point, we should just give Xbox fans a consoling hug, in the name of good sportsmanship. PS4 is going to end XBone.

jessupj1574d ago

I kinda have to agree. Even though they're still being stubborn as hell I somewhat am starting to feel sorry for them.

DialgaMarine1573d ago

They're getting completely screwed, by the company they'll seemingly support to the end no less, and they don't even realize. I guess ignorance truly is bliss...
