sorry ...they are not getting 1000 times the power of the PS3.

abzdine4004d ago

it's a so to speak what he said, and why do you care in first place? you are always trolling PS4 news

OC_MurphysLaw4004d ago

I eventually plan on getting a PS4 just like I have a PS3. I do like many of Sony's 1st party offerings.

abzdine4004d ago

yeah ok sorry but i remember every PS4 news is posted you need to come and react negatively on it.
I can tell you even PS5 wouldn't be 1000times more powerful than PS3, you shouldn't take everything you read so serious.

"yeah ok sorry but i remember every PS4 news is posted you need to come and react negatively on it.

You do the EXACT same thing with regard to the X1! Absolute hypocrite.

Also, its obvious iGamer didn't even bother reading the article (what a surprise).

""Basically the teams said that if we can afford to give them 1,000 times the performance of the PS3 then go ahead, do it."

So basically, third parties shared a Jeremy Clarkson moment and wanted "more POWAH". Not surprising considering the long lifecycle of the PS3 and the developments made in tech.

Even $5000 pcs are not 1000 x the power of the ps3

Perhaps he's reacting to the over excitement of the first comment.

@abzdine I have my preferences for sure but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate or want Sony product. I have a slim 120GB PS3 and am in the midst of The Last of Us which I will put up as one of the best games not only this year but ranks up in the top 10 for this generation. I give credit where credit is due and will call out things as I see fit.

I have been critical of MS as well...and very critical of Nintendo. I love the gaming industry and Sony has been the hot topic lately for N4G so its hard to not comment in them.

Lmao....dlacy actually corrected the guy...lmao....some people

We wanted an Xbox 720 but instead we get a 180....

abzdine4004d ago

no need to be agressive like this.
the reason why i seem to hate the X1 is that it's an anti consumer product and all the lies around it.
PS4 on the other hand everyone knows what is happening and for the first time Sony has been very good at communicating with consumers, which makes the PS4 a pro-consumer product and it deserves all attention.
nothing hypocrit about this, just saying what i'm seeing, up to you to agree or not.

@abzdine: It's not always trolling if someone disagrees you know, especially when they're right. The PS4 is 10x the power of the PS3, not 1000x more powerful. But let's be honest, Cerny was just exaggerating what developers asked for to express an unobtainable and unrealistic goal, and iGAM3R-VIII just agreed for fun. If some of you can't tell the difference between literal and figurative, you might want to look up Aspergers

people can be against the misleading pr without hating the ps4...

So basically - It could have been even more powerful and had a better GPU, but developers would have run into the same problem as the PS3 with being un-familiar with the tech and thus having to re-learnr more stuff instead of just applying good ideas to what they know and making games.

It's more important to make the dev process smooth and as fast as possible, than it is to have the best ultimate mega graphics.

whoyouwit044004d ago (Edited 4004d ago )

Dude, A 1000 times more powerful then PS3 was never going to happen. Do you know how much that console would cost if it was that powerful?

SatanSki4003d ago (Edited 4003d ago )

The devs were asking for as powerfull hardware as Sony can provide but they ended with... this. Sony could design several time more powerfull sysytem with the same architecture but it would be more costly. IMO nextgen hardware is ok for a couple of years but will get old really fast and im disappointed with it.

wishingW3L4004d ago (Edited 4004d ago )

PS4's only like 4-5 times stronger than the PS3 not 1,000 times.

kayoss4003d ago

The article never said the PS4 was 1000 times more powerful then PS3. He said the Developers wanted the PS4 to be 1000 time stronger then the PS3 but he never confirm or said it was.

mike32UK4004d ago

I'm sorry, I'm Sony all the way but come on man...

Krosis4004d ago

Put the Kool-Aid down lol I'd say the PS4 is roughly 10 times more powerful than the PS3. Every new console is roughly 10 times more powerful than the last.

Andronix4004d ago

Does anyone know if there is a recorded stream of this?

Doctor_Freeman4004d ago (Edited 4004d ago )

"Wanted 1000 times more power than the PS3"

What world are they on.

I can see wanting 5-10 times more power, but 1000?

Get real

SatanSki4003d ago

Jesus Christ its just an figurative expression. Is it so hard to understand? :rollseyes:

Mkai284004d ago (Edited 4004d ago )

Let me know when you spend $100,000 on the 1000 times more powerful PS4.
