at this point its really stupid to predict who will win the next console war personally i think its stupid even calling it a console war but anyways we don't know a thing about what's coming our way in the future so making a prediction about it is rather silly heck for all we know a new competitor can enter the ring and take the imaginary non existent crown
thing is...im positive Sony will incorporate the Move or some enhancement of the tech and have it bundled with the PS4 and the next gen standard controller...thats just me
EDIT so far the winner in sales is wii winner in games ps3 winner in advertisement microsoft winner in spokesperson ps3 winner in most played(exclusive) fps microsoft
My Guess to Why a console that's not out Will Win against other consoles that aren't out. I biased my research on all the extensive knowledge I have on time travel. So having been to the future and back I can assure you Sony will win.
How and why did this article get approved..
I agreed with this article. Because Sony wont release PS4 till their money recovery from PS3.(atleast untill 2016-2017).PS4 will be 10 year lifetime. xbox720p & wii 2 will end on same time when Ps3 ends(5years life). So PS4 will win next-next gen.
I think the obvious specs will be: - Nextgen BR device - 500GB standard - 500GB HD - New version of Cell (backwards compatible) - Next gen NVidia graphics Not too much into detail on the specs - point is that it will be simply update of the current formula for the PS3 - which will mean from the start the component cost will not be as high as the initial cost for the PS3 and fully BC with PS3. With so many 1st and 2nd party studios, we can expect that Sony might already have at least two studios committed already to developing toolchains, engines for the PS4.
lol no 500 gb blu ray disc are still extremely expensive you cant even find a 500gb blu ray disc 250gb blu ray disc backwards compatable cell wont happen unless your implying it should be backwards compatible with games which is not the same thing
500gb is too much but maybe the standard will be 100gb disks.
"My Guess to Why the PS4 Will Win the Next Console War" LOL, already trying to predict a winner for next gen ? I guess some people never learn :)
Between MS and Sony, I'm willing to bet that Sony will still come out on top next gen. If MS wants to prove me wrong, they can start buying studios and making concessions to gamers.
would but a launch MS system agian
XBOX = rock solid. 360 = faulty. 360s = solid Nothing to fret about.
XBOX was a tank. You can even stand on it. I kid you not.
i would never ever ever ever ever ever buy a launch day xbox again, im sorry, i went through 5 xbox 360s since launch and its completely bs, now that ps3 is getting mass effect 2, im not even bothering fixing it. MS wants money this time, FU microsoft -end rant
Five? What kind of an idiot goes through five Xbox 360s? I mean, 2 or 3 makes sense. But 5? That's borderline retarded.
One of my friends had to return his xbox 4 times because they kept red ringing. This was earlier in the 360's life span but it easily could happen to clan (tho its obvious he's a bit of a fanboy so I say this with a bit of reservation). If MS fixes it for free then why not keep sending them in?
If you send your console in for repairs 5 times, then it's still considered one console. You can't say you went through 5 consoles. Going through 5 consoles is like being electrocuted by an electric fence and then touching it another 4 times. The common rodent wouldn't make that mistake twice. PS Clan made that mistake several times more.
wtf you on, how is it anything like that, his console messing up is not his fault its f*in m$' fault for selling faulty consoles (purposely) that pack in after the warranty runs out. @redlogic why should ppl send them in its inconvenient sending that shit to germany, i know someone who had to wait 2 month for it back, probably because m$ were that busy fixing the millions of consoles that have f*ed up!!! and they dont always fix for free depends when they break!!!!
Given I know next to nothing about the next console generation currently I'd toss a coin, but I'd neeed to invent a three sided coin for that to work.
no one knows who will come out on top. maybe sega will finally come out with a new console. maybe cloud gaming will be the norm. no one even knows when the next gen will start.
There's no hope for microsoft. They have no good 1st party developers and rely solely on third party exclusives which eventually end up coming to the playstation. Basically, sony is king for this generation. Up the irons
They don't need hope, right now Halo and COD are making Xbox's sell. When casuals hear COD on Xbox with first access to map packs, they go crazy, sad really. As long as MS has Halo and COD on their system, they have nothing to worry about.
lets see here bungie=halo bungie leaves microsoft leaving 343studios to makes halo=we know nothing about 343 basically im saying Microsoft entire game strategy is centered on one game and halo if halo falls xbox falls with it
Who approved this, I mean come on, this isn't even funny.
PS4? Ha, good one, PS3 is just getting started. Hell, if the PS3 keeps things up, I would not be surprised if it`s going to be up against the nextbox and wii 2 for a good part of the next generation!
In terms of games, I agree. But in terms of hardware power, the next gen of consoles is going to make even PS3 games look bad.
Starting early huh???
I feel as though my PS3 is just a Beta stage for the PS4, since Sony keeps experimenting with it by adding feature and whatnot but most of them need more horsepower something that the PS4 should give Edit: 2 bubbles? Thank You my children
wow this is like a comedy article, already crowning a victor for a next gen when this one isnt out yet. not delicious
We all know what happened this gen with the Sony will win talk. I don't know what Sony or MS has in store for next gen but if MS can secure the 1st party support it will be a nice battle.
The next XBox will release before the PS4. Therefore the PS3 will be the lowest denominator when creating games. Just like the 360 is the lowest THIS gen. Meaning:[this gen] devs have to code with dvd in mind, first. Next gen. Devs have to code with Blu-ray in mind, first. When developing a multiplatform title. Coupled with Sony's 1st party studios. Sony doesn't have to release a PS4 for awhile. Sony will always be one step ahead, on the games created side that is. I'm not talking sales at all. I can't play sales. Eventually though. If both Sony and MS keep making consoles. They're eventually going to release consoles at the same time. But Sony will still have more 1st party studios if they keep their track record. Think ahead. Just a thought.
I have a feeling Sony will wait 2 years after the next MS and NiN consoles just so it can have more power than them while still being able to have a competitive price as tech will keep improving thus making older tech cheaper. So if that happens it would be extremely hard to judge "who is winning", but I usually don't buy a new console until about 2 years in anyways (made the mistake of buying a 360 at launch and it broke not even 2 months out of warranty, then waited for the ps3 price to drop)
Because the Playstation is F*****g awesome.
just as a guess i would give it to sony only because of first party support
Totally worthless article.
Quality of Games (1st party Baby),Quality of Hardware,Quality of Online Service = PS4
PS4 will win if it is backwards compatible with PS3. PS3 is a winner this gen, not because of sales, but because of it's content, and the company is showing so much support for their fan base. Sony always taking risks and some losts so that us gamers win.
PS3 even does not know how to end this one. How can somebody predict next one?
Read my post http://n4g.com/news/588210/... :) Think it might be worth it if we want to speculate in what Sony might have in store :)
Price and release date are frankly the most important. The 360 was successful because it came first and was cheaper than the PS3. I honestly don't think Sony can afford another obscene launch price again, no matter how good the specs are. It's gotta be $400 or less if they want any kind of early adoption.
PLEASE IT IS TOO EARLY TO TALK ABOUT NEXT GEN especially ps3 has more power left and more games coming soon. Ps3 is just starting to hit is strides, this will not help ps3. I think the earliest who will show there console is xbox 360 since it is max out and they are getting nervous that ps3 getting more popular
wait,getting in my time machine,i'll be back soon to tell you if they were right. oh dang,out of molecular holographic electrodes to start it,anybody got any spare mhe?
