I've questioned this argument for awhile now. According to Sony own specs the PS3 and PS4 TFLOPs are about the same and the PS3 is still more powerful than the XB1. I know Sony has a history of being full of crap regarding specs but I really don't see a jump in visual fidelity. If either PS3 or X360 had 8 GBs of ram they both could match about 70% of the titles I've seen on next gen so far. Granted most of next gen titles are either ports or indie developed titles. Next gen just seem like MS and Sony wanted to make their systems more developer friendly and load each system up with RAM. Both systems couldn't even do Battlefield 4 at max settings at 1080P! I hear COD has framerates issues on both platforms and with the XB1 being at 720P. Don't even get me started on the Wii U, probably the smallest bump in performance since well moving from the Gamecube to the Wii. Unlike the monsters Sony and MS released in 2005/06 I can't see this generation lasting longer than 6 years with outdated hardware at launch. Sony built a low/midrange PC, while MS built a mid range laptop, and Nintendo built an mid to high end tablet, WTF?
That was theoretical output. In reality it was only 250-400gflops. Who knows maybe the rsx could do 1.8tflops but was limited by its 256mb vram.
On paper, yes. Off paper, no (at least not from what I've seen).
Yeah because the PS3 could run Killzone SF at 1080 60fps easily!......./S Launch games aren't the best games to judge the power gap between generations, but from what we gave seen from both consoles so far is very impressive compared to current gen in my opinion.
You are, indeed, entitled to that opinion. I was simply expressing mine. The games look impressive, but they are not leaps and bounds impressive.
Imho you need to compare ps3 launch games to PS4 launch games. Compare the original Resistance to Killzone Shadow Fall. Or compare Resistance to The Last of us. Then perhaps people can realize how far we've come, and how far we will be going with Playstation 4
Not at all. no real evidence of that.
It's not much difference, surrrrrrrrrre...
1st gen PS3 game: http://media.officialplayst... 1st gen PS4 game: http://abload.de/img/3twsms... http://pu.cdn.hub.nl/media/... The answer is YES.
The proper question to ask is this...is the ps4 really leaps and bounds beyond the Xbone. That is the proper question. You're welcome.
The PS3's full gaming potential have been met, after so many years i think games like The Last of Us shows us the very best of whats possible from a gaming POV. From what i see, the first generation next gen games are waay ahead. its easy to take for granted how much power it takes just to add the effects you see or the extra textures, just look at the character animations...not to mention the AI improvements we keep reading about..all that take a alot of power. The PS3 was truly a revolutionary beast, but it was limited graphically by the Cell unfortunately
"Sony announed that as of Nov 2nd, the mighty PS3 had shipped 80 million units." They announced 80 million shipped over half a year ago...
I'll just leave this here... http://www.gamersyde.com/st... Let you decide :D
