And as toothy as a beaver, and as sexy as a horse, and as scaly as a lizard, and as leathery as an African rhino, and as slimy as a squid, and as cool as a koala. And other animal stuff, too.

lolz i guess? last i heard from just about anyone who has had the chance to see/hear it up close, the xbox one is dead quite. Let's at least be fair here, if there's one thing MS did seem to get right this time, it's ventilation. They have tons of it and as a result, many are saying that in a quiet room you pretty much have to listen for it if you want to know it's on. Why can't sony and MS just make their systems connect on some power rangers shit and then it could get all big and pissed and do weird things

African Lions can and do hunt Elephants-only specific prides do this, Cape Buffalo, Giraffe, Hippo - dangerous as a pride found out when an experienced lioness got bitten through the skull and throat, but survived.

Impressive considering Africa's largest and most powerful sub species of Lion is now extinct, the Barbary Lion.

@chrissx - Not really history in the making, neither is the Xbox One.

The first man on the moon, Nixon VS David Frost, Cuban missile crisis, WW1&2 (Though best not mention Japan on that one), The Berlin Wall coming down...

Now they were all huge moments in history!

Then we have Sony and Microsoft... LOL, They are nothing, just electronics.. not even page one headlines.

I dont know man, I think when the PS4 launches and the XB1 launches there's going to be some brawls at those midnight events.

When the PS3 launch a person got shot for his console over by this area so i can imagine all the crazy people trying to get their hands on it.
scott182  +   847d ago
Very good to hear! I'm glad they focused on ventilating the system well and placing the fans at an angle that they wont make much noise.

Judging from that tacky PS t-shirt, I'm sure he's not a fanboy at all. Can't wait to hear about the Xbox from someone who's wearing a 360 headband next...

I agree, I'm not a troll if you're directing that towards me.... the post was clearly sarcastic. Neither the X1 nor PS4 look all that impressive yet. In 2014 they'll probably be good, but their launches look sub-par. I'd rather not see so many hyperbolic and fanboyish articles on here. Comments are easy to ignore.

humbleopinion  +   846d ago
That's actually what worries me about next gen: the PS3 and Xbox 360 were loud, because they fans to ventilate quickly in order to bring down excess heat. Next gen consoles however don't seem to push the envelope that way.

You know what's also very silent? My mobile phone running (average looking )games at full HD. You know what's loud? My GTX 680 when it's pushed to the max.
If you're machine is running too quiet, it means you are not pushing it hard enough.
I don't care about playing games on a quite consoles: Games are played loud on speakers anyway so I don't hear the background noise, and there are no battery life issues associated with noisy cooling. Give me more juice instead of making things quieter, otherwise you'll see stronger competing machines (Valve anyone?) taking over with better looking games.

Its great that its quiet.

Given the size of the console and the components within I'm eager to see a tear down to find out how Sony have approached the thermal management. They obviously have a minimalist approach whereas MS have gone big box with lots o' holes and a monster fan.

As for power. I'm sure hes right but I'll wait for a neutral assessment rather than a Sony dev story on a Sony site then mentioned on a very Sony N4G.

As for Ripstone. A new PS4 in Liverpool! tomorrows story will be about a burglary at Liverpool based dev lol!
MasterCornholio  +   847d ago
I read an article once about 3D transistors in the PS4 which is one of the main reasons why their cooling system is extremely efficient compared to Microsoft's. I can't wait to see a tear down as well and hopefully we will see one soon.

and cost $1500-$2000 show me 1 pc which has 8gb of GDDR5 ram.

NONE because you cant get 8GB GDDR5 GPU's also if you sli 4 titans you still have 6gb of GDDR5, because sli isnt cummalitive, obv ps4 is not titan but for 500 bucks (where i live atleast) its the best value for money ever because for $300 you wouuld only get a copy of wind, a case and a psu,
humbleopinion  +   846d ago
Why throw in 8 GB of GDDR5 when it's much smarter to throw in 32GB of DDR3 (which is faster than GDDR5) for general purpose CPU and system level access which favor good latency, and top that with another 4GB or GDDR5 (which has higher bandwidth than DDR4) dedicated just for the graphic operations which favor bandwidth over latency?

MasterCornholio  +   847d ago
There are other developers who are talking about the PS4 as well like UbiSoft, Squarenix, Capcom, iD Software and other developers of AAA games. But the reason why we hear so much from indies is because there are a ton of indies in the video game industry and Sony been known to be extremely open to them.

Yet again a PS4 topic full of XB fanboys. Yet I always hear moaning about PS Fanboys flooding XB articles, where they aren't welcome......on a forum ;-)
DigitalRaptor  +   846d ago
These Xbox fanboys tearing down indie developers are a disgrace to gaming. I'd go as far as saying they're the scum of gaming, since they're downplaying and holding prejudices against the developers who are responsible for some of the most unique, original and creative games to grace the industry, in favour of their blind loyalist support of the hungry publisher machine that thrives on bloated AAA budgets over original ideas.

These are the same people that said they care more about gameplay than graphics or production value, and the same guys that used indie games on XBLA as a talking point of the 360. Yet now, it's all about a game being AAA rather than the focus on actual substance of gameplay.

And the pant-wettingly hilarious irony is that Respawn Entertainment (Titanfall devs) are an independent studio. Oh the glorious, glorious irony!

MultiConsoleGamer  +   846d ago

For me it's been at least 5 times now.
AceBlazer13  +   846d ago
Well since you saw it 5 times already I'd assume you went to conventions.So I highly doubt a bunch of ps4s in close proximity, running simultaneously coupled together with loud crowds would sound as quiet as a mouse.
Hicken  +   846d ago
Yes, and I'm certain those dev-spec PS4s will be running under the same conditions as the one you may or may not come to own.
MultiConsoleGamer  +   846d ago

Oh so they have developer consoles in the retail enviroment now?

Give it a rest.
Hicken  +   846d ago
They only JUST started sending PS4s to retail locations. I mean, they've just been available to play in the last day or two. And you've already been to see the console five times?

Or are you calling conferences and conventions retail environments?

A lion would be able to rip through 1080p and 60fps no problem.

The ps4 is no lion
OmegaShen  +   846d ago
Anything to back that up? Because no proof means you full of more hot air then Microsoft with Cloud.
Bolts  +   846d ago
900p and 60fps is the target for the PS4 per Dice. So the chances of the PS4 doing 1080p 60 fps is virtual nil.
UncleGermrod  +   846d ago
I have no doubt that the ps4 will be a great piece of tech in pretty much every way and I applaud sony for their excellent approach thus far to the next gen and to their past and future commitment to gamers. I chose MS first for this gen due to a mix of currently being a predominantly xbox gamer and my interest in their launch window games.
What I would like to point out is the fact that much of the positive ps4 statements come from indie devs, as does much of the negative xbox stuff. What I am saying is that I wonder if this is a result of MS past policies regarding the indie community. In other words, while much of it is probably true, I also feel like it may be somewhat overly harsh and even biased. Guys like jonathan blow seem to really hate MS. They kind of have a point, but sometimes I just feel like we may not be getting the whole truth from them. I'm not a huge indie game fan but I certainly do not mind having more games to choose from as well as a more diverse catalog of creative titles.
Again, I'm simply pointing out that for sometime now, I have sensed that xbox may be getting a little too much flack in terms of performance/features from indie devs simply because they are sour with MS about their polices. Good thing MS changed many of their policies on self-publishing etc., but we will see how that turns out.
Does any one agree with me or at least see the same trend?
Again, I don't blame indies for siding with sony so far, but I also feel that they prob have plenty of power to work with on the xbox one and are just kind of reluctant to give MS any positive attention.
An analogy of what I am trying to say would be the current situation with Nvidia. They keep talking about how consoles are "low end" and how PC is the future etc. In many ways, they aren't really lying; however, I do feel like they are pissed at sony/MS for going with AMD for their chipsets and so they are extra focused on creating negative views on next gen consoles. Sort of how many indie devs might know that xbox one has plenty power to support their games but they would rather punish MS for treating them poorly to this point.
