Nuketail, How much money do you need to spend on a gaming PC and updates? I'm sure a lot more than $400
Hydrolex  +   324d 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

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?
darthv72  +   324d 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?????
trafalger  +   324d 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.

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.
Sideras  +   323d 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.

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.

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.

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.

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

jessupj  +   324d ago
Must be tough being a MS fan these days. Seems like the whole world's against you.

On paper the PS4 is significantly more powerful than the X1. It's inevitable that we're going to see it with our own eyes very soon.

I expect multiplats to be performing better as well.
edonus  +   324d ago
Actually being a MS fan is pretty good. A new system with great features great games, we don't need a community hive mind to feel good about purchasing electronics.

You use paper to wipe your backside not judge the abilities of electronics and even if you were to believe the paper machine significantly more powerful is beyond stretching the facts.

Inevitable could be 5-7yrs if even possible. So until it shows something that supports that power gap it's all just hot air. To me even if it was true it wouldn't matter to me. I like the X1s overall offerings so if the Ps4 was truly more capable I would give it its props but as of now it ain't earned them.

So holla when inevitable gets here.

RedHawkX  +   323d 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.
H0RSE  +   323d 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.

Mini0510  +   322d 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.

wait padding out?

LMAO really?, its one thing when your company only has one game system in the market to worry about for development resources when you are bringing out another game system. IE: Microsoft

but both Sony and Nintendo currently has more than just 1 freaking game system in the retail chain!

as a matter of fact what would Microsoft's 1st party offering's look like, if they had 3 or more systems in the retail chain and now they would end up with a 4th , what would their 1st party offering's look like than.

Padding my @ss its far easy to point finger's @ see it as a negative from the perspective of a company that only needs to worry about 1 system right now on the retail chain, and also reduced their world wide shipping number of regions from 21 down to 13.

DialgaMarine  +   323d ago
John Carmack is a dinosaur now. His job is no longer to actually develop a product that sets a new standard and blows all else away. He just talks based on whose flashing some of that mulah his way. Remember how much he flip flopped between PS3 and 360 before Rage's release? Then the game completely sucked. Sorry, but John Carmack isn't the only person who has a say so in these hardware comparisons, and it seems like the majority of third party and indie devs have said the same exact thing as this article. Sad part is, even M$'s own in-house, and the few third parties that actually support them, can't say this statement is wrong. It's why they're constantly having to play up TEH CLOUD and TEH TV FEARUREZ cards, because the console really has nothing else going for it, at this point. Hell, like Sony has stated before, PS4 has superior cloud capabilities through Gakai, and it should be getting similar TV services as well.

What about a PC?

I mean when games for the 360 were "console exclusive" but were also available in pc's all u fanboys claimed that the pc is a console.

e.g Witcher 2, Metro 2033, Tropico 2, 3 and 4 etc...

which is it?
starchild  +   324d ago
It changes depending on what is convenient for their argument at the time.

When a game is on PC and Xbox, the PC becomes just another gaming system that everyone supposedly loves and owns. Who cares if that game is on Xbox 360 "I'll just play it on my PC".

But other times the PC is a piece of overpriced crap that no gamer in their right mind would spend money on.

If PC gamers point out that the PC is, in fact, the most powerful gaming platform, suddenly the PC doesn't matter. Nobody would pay that much money "just for slightly better graphics", we are told.

The hypocrisy, double standards, and moving of goalposts is hilarious to me.
Chris12  +   324d ago
Where are my games Sony? PS4 preordered for months and still no real games of interest. I'm being honest, I'm getting a little disheartened hearing about MS's launch line up, yet for all the chest thumping and power specs Sony is doing us no favours. I know I'll get negged to death but just as people put pressure on MS and things got done, we need to start being a bit more honest than simply accepting the tat we have so far
McScroggz  +   324d ago
You have a right to complain that the PS4 doesn't have enough blockbuster exclusive games at launch, I personally won't downvote you. It is true.

Although, to me I'm buying into the PlayStation ecosystem (sorry for PR buzzword) and what I mean is that for the next 5 years I know I'll be getting plenty of blockbuster exclusives - just look at the past three generations. Plus I'll get a very diverse mix of games, including now a ton of indie games. I'll be subscribing to PlayStation Plus and gobbling up all of the free games, discounts and such. I'll have my Vita to use in whatever capacity seems fun.

Sure, Microsoft has more AAA exclusive games ready for launch, but I'm not buying a new console for the next 6 months...I'm buying one for the next 6 years. And so I'm more than comfortable with going with a PS4.

But again, I understand not being as excited for the launch as you'd like. I'll not call you out if you wait or even if you switch to Xbox One. I just hope you consider more than just the launch games as the main factor.

Have a good day sir.
JamieL  +   323d ago
You know this is one of the most sensible and honest comments I've ever seen on this site, and I agree. I like and want an XB1, I do want a PS4 as well, but I have my eye on the XB1 first, but I couldn't agree with you more. I think the XB1's launch line up looks awesome, and I'm looking forward to playing a lot of those games, but not all at once. I don't even buy games like that now. I like to buy a game, then beat it, buy next game. If I get too many at once it's like I don't give any of them the "attention" to actually enjoy what’s happening. It's like reading multiple books at the same time. Jumping story to story takes me out of all of them.

On that note I think Sony is giving the gamer plenty of options at launch, and you know the games will keep coming, and getting better, that’s how this industry works, and even the biggest Sony hater can’t say Sony doesn’t put out games.

It amazes me how Sony fanboys act as if Sony is mailing them a paycheck every month for being online cheerleaders. It's clear that Sony got their butts kicked this last time around with the Xbox 360. I clearly remember when the PS3 was released and you same fanboys shelled out $500 plus dollars and justified it's price over and over yet now you pile on the Xbox One for it's price, what a bunch of adolescent hypocrites.

Not only that, Sony is in desperation mode and you guys know it, or maybe your just ignorant to that fact. Everything Sony is doing is based on cutting price points, or better said- undercutting the competition. How funny is that??? A company that historically is known for high pricing and use to be proud of it is running around with it's tail between it's legs undercutting the competition. Again, this is something Sony has NEVER done which explains one thing- Sony is desperate.

As a consumer, I'm not complaining but you Sony Fanboys are the worst hypocrites on earth you know this is true but you won't be honest and admit the truth. You'd rather act like little kids and rail on Xbox One all because Microsoft knocked Sony off of their pedestal with the current gen system.

It's not personal at all. I'm a gamer and if Sony comes through with the PS4 I'll get and Xbox One AND a PS4. Sony failed this current gen and most of the games of note came out on the Xbox 360 and third party developers. Sony is definitely in desperation mode this time around going with the cheaper price on the PS4 and now the Vita because the PS3 failed against the Wii and 360 and the Vita failed against the 3DS.

"Microsoft knocked Sony off of their pedestal with the current gen system."

No they didn't. PS2 wiped the floor with everyone. MS and Nintendo had nowhere to go but up in sales, and Sony had nowhere to go but down in sales. Both Ninty and MS went up a lot, so Sony dropped quite a bit. Ninty won the generation and MS ended up third, so if any one company knocked Sony off it was Ninty, but I'd say it was a joint effort. Even Sony took part in that drop off with an expensive console that was tricky to develop for. MS certainly didn't knock Sony off their pedestal by themselves.

@TwistedReality - Your name is fitting if you think Sony's fall this generation was just because of MS.

Facepalm indeed.

How can Sony get its butt kicked when M$ clearly came out a year early in the states and year and half early in Europe? You know head to head Sony is going to crush Xbox 1.

I seem to remember when the PS3 came out it had something called bluray. I also seem to remember 360 charging $200 for a HD drive because the 360 only plays DVDs.

Nintendo knocked Sony off the pedestal, not M$. The 360 is in fact in last place.

As far as desperation goes, isn't it M$ who has backtracked on every policy that they announced for the Xbox 1? Isn't it M$ who is now installing bluray in every Xbox 1? Isn't it M$ that's charging $500 for a console that's not as powerful as the PS4? The xbox 1 is overprice piece of hardware that hooks up to your cable box.

What about how M$ is now so in love with indie developers?

Wasn't it M$ who tried to monoplies the software market?

Your lost son go back to the drawing board.

Whoa whoa angry Xbot! Eaaasy..."It's clear that Sony got their butts kicked this last time around with the Xbox 360." M$FT's best console even with a year head start, cheaper price, and RROD to boost sales STILL LOSSED to Sony's worse selling console...Now put that into perspective..."I clearly remember when the PS3 was released and you same fanboys shelled out $500 plus dollars and justified it's price over and over yet now you pile on the Xbox One for it's price" lol...Blu-Ray players alone were around $1000 in 05'/06' the PS3 had Blu-Ray, Wi-fi, and HDMI cables right out the box. "As a consumer, I'm not complaining"...This is exactly why the likes of M$FT, EA, and Activision phucks over dumb founded buyers like yourself...I bet you were upset when M$FT dropped the restrictive nature of XBO weren't you? lol

Call a spade a spade

They're not wrong

@Gamer666

Totally agree with you.
Every company needs their little victories, they all do it. This is Sonys tagline for this Gen. So no matter what the argument fanboys will ALWAYS come back with 'yeah but the PS4 is the most powerful console on the market'. and thats just fine. It it the truth at the end of the day.

Let them have it, you and I know that power is not everything.

But power of the console does not mean that the console will succeed...

Wii was the least powerful console last gen and won... PS2 was not as powerful as Xbox but won...

Most generations are not defined by the power of the console, but rather the content and features that people want.

@Gamer666,

But with that said,

The Wii U is the least powerful now, and it's doing horrible.

@ Persistantthug
It may be doing bad, but it's sold more than the XB1 and the PS4 at this point so it's winning, until launch day anyway.
