Many gamers and press like to blame Sony’s incessant need to have the most powerful console as the reason as to why they are in last place this generation . While that may be true Sony-gamer.com would like to look at the other side of this coin and how Sony wanting to have the most powerful console could of possibly benefitted the PS3. And could look to help the PS4 next generation if they strive for the most powerful console again.
they did that this gen what did it get them?
I don't think they have a choice any more.
Like it or not, PS3 was a trojan horse for Blu-ray which was part of their plan.
Now, with Sony pushing 4K resolution TVs, they'll need a console at least capable of 4K resolution games, even if it's the same as PS3 where only a limited number of games support it. That's going to require some power to achieve.
Sony's unified global strategy means their 4K TVs need 4K capable devices and PlayStation still holds weight, despite what the haters (mostly American media to be fair) seem to think.
But it'll still be lacking behind my PC whenever it's released.
Playstation fans needs to realise this "raw power" will NEVER happen. Unless you want a console costing £600+.
Expect dated hardware and gimped architecture.
I'm sure there will be no issues, this is the second generation of this type of console. The social console.
