At its Gamescom presentation, Sony claims its system is the world's most powerful console, and then describes how it will help facilitate a gaming revolution.
And it is, can't wait to get my hands on it
It's more than just a claim, it's a fact.
Nuketail, How much money do you need to spend on a gaming PC and updates? I'm sure a lot more than $400
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
We need proof anf demostrations other than thst its just lip service.
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
Good thing they used the word "console" or those hardcore pc fanatics would've been going apesh*t.
and still there are dumbasses who dare to disagree..
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?
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?????
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.
RIP Nuketail. Couldnt handle all the PS4 news and super exploded his pants.
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.
@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.
Just release it already!!!!
Words are cheap. Show me!!!
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. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
carmack and other devs disagree as well, not haters only xD
No one PC games? Over 6 million steam users on at ONE time is no one?
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.
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.
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. http://www.gamesindustry.bi... http://www.techspot.com/new... http://www.pcgamesn.com/nvi...
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"
@ape007 "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
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.
ZHZ90 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.
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.
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..
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.
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.
for your comment above xHeavYx, uh, I think a PC does more than a console. That's perhaps why it costs a little more.
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
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
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
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.
people will disagree that gravity existence, even though its true. ffs people .
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. : P
Gravity Rides Everything. :)
Lolz at fools disagreeing with gravity.
Why is this news..
Why is it not? Did this happen already? I don't think so.
facts....are facts..its king of consoles in regards to power.
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
It only sucks that you're console has less games, features and inferior online.
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.
I kinda have to agree. Even though they're still being stubborn as hell I somewhat am starting to feel sorry for them.
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...
nice one ahahaha
It is. Next.
Wow there's like only one console out there even close to competing with the PS4 and that's Xbox One. That's a bold statement there, Sony! /s
who said it was bold all they are saying is true, i guess you are an xboner. OT Even the ps4 advert posters say most powerful console so im guessing they must know what MS have.
oh god..this article.... bracing for shit storm lol
It's a shame they are padding out this gamescom with ps3,vita and indie stuff! Where is the ps4 stuff?
You do know that the conference isn't over yet right? Motors RAZR i
Not long left tho mate!
@thrust "It's a shame they are padding out this gamescom with ps3,vita and indie stuff! Where is the ps4 stuff?" 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.
And the Vita is the worlds most powerful handheld.
Define "handheld". Are we counting all portables such as tablets and phones or just dedicated gaming ones.
Spec wise it is. There is no type of debate about that.
you definitely have more tech knowledge than john carmack
and psychics have more science knowledge than nasa space engineers.
Maybe not as I am only a software engineer major but it's simple. What he said is they will be very identical which they will be but from a pure spec standpoint the PS4 wins. That doesn't mean nothing more or less so please relax.
"you definitely have more tech knowledge than john carmack" once again bringing up this guy ffs you guys are just stupid i swear, Carmack said they are the same architecture wise NOT performance wise get it into your big stupid thick heads, my god its like trying to train a chimp.
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.
