Today was a big day in news. We found out some dirt on what Bethesda is up to, as well as some info on how Sony is doing financially. Not to mention the bombshell discovery of PS4 tech specs...
Some blog says they Know something about PS4 Spec's? This just in Xbox 720 to use blu ray details on my blog!!! c'mon please
A super saiyan is inside this time around.
All companies will try to keep the price of their console cheap, so Nintendo doesn't have the advantage in price like in this gen, meaning that hardware will probably be a little more powerful than it is now. MS will more than likely use the Blu-ray format, unless they find another format that they think gives them an advantage while keeping cost low(unlikely). Price will be the main concern for the next gen. So in order to figure out what to expect in the future... keep price in mind!
price is what to keep in mind for THIS gen. the financial meltdown last year is what made the ps3s sell 1/2 as much as 360s.
@Thanatos Nice so when my PS4 plays regular media files it stays black, but when it starts playing games it changes colors into gold. Sweet!
That's a console called the PSX you morons its a PS2 with a hard drive exclusive to japan. Its basically used for media storage and playing Final Fantasy 11 you can also record your game play footage as you play. I cant believe people are stupid enough to fall for this. Notice the wired pad did the PS4 take a step backwards?
Agreed mate . . .looked fine at the time, and sold okay, but not enough to actually have them keep it going. basically a big dud sadly. But it's interesting that there's really no info if you follow the link, just lots of more links to have you follow links hehehe
@1.5 The picture has nothing to do with the article dumb****.
The Motorstorm Dev team didn't find out the tech specs for the PS3 until the E3 powerpoint, and these people think they have the specs for the PS4 after the PS3 is just starting it's third year of life. BS. This trash isn't even good enough to make the rumors page of credible sites.
Yeah that PS4 info is probably bogus...
All they are saying really is that the core die will get smaller and just increase the number of cores not really changing the whole Cell design for a new chip. < That is common sense though. Every new CPU does that now. That is what I expect out of the Cell 2 anyway somewhere between 8-32 cores with at least 32+ threads working at the same time with the chip going up from 3.2 Ghz up to 4.0 Ghz this time around. Only makes sense PS4 to run at 4 Ghz. This information though isn't new about the Cell chip. Its just more speculation really. Either way cores are not the only thing to pay attention to as far as the processing goes. Right now PS3 and X360 both use up to 6 threads for processing in both chips. Making them almost the same, but the PS3 does so in a way that makes it run faster with the Cell design with each SPE doing its own thing. Likely Sony and IBM will expand with this idea. Using around 8-32 SPEs and 2-8 PPEs on the new chip. Only time will reveal the exact details, but either way its likely that each SPE will process between 1-4 threads at a time so depending on that the numbers will vary. In the End though I expect 32 threads to be running on the PS4 and maybe Xbox 720 that is at least 5 times more than what is running now in the PS3 and X360.
Definitely bogus yeah. There's nothing really interesting mentioned in the article. Nothing new at all actually. Those versions of the Cell exist today, and nothing new is mentioned really, they're just modifying the PS3 a wee bit. Just pure speculations, and little facts.
I know these are rumors, but this is getting excessive. This just in Nintendo is working on their new system, the wii-tarded.
I have all the info on the ps4 but i can't tell you guys sorry lol
That OnePS4-All gaming initiative to bring a PS4 to each and every one of the worlds poorest people isn't for another 10 years! SHHHHHhhhhhhhh...
I think that the PS4 specs could be real. Hardware Manufactures start R&D a year or so after the release of the current console. These things happen. It could be fake. It could be real. Who knows
only in japan. looks kool though.
my friend had one in Boston it was like i had an preview of the PS3 since it had the XMB
All Sony has to do is put more RAM in the next ps3 and it will be the ultimate gaming machine. Same goes for the 360,,, Also, just put a 4 GHz processor and HD DVD and you wont beable to tell the differance between the ps3 and 360. Unless you play online, then the 360 takes the cake.
except no movies will be made on hd dvd, that is if it resurrects.
but...but...I though teh PS3 was gunna last until 2018 and would not be replaced for awhile......o well XD
Any news site that does not know the difference between there and their is not worth reading in my book, let alone that none of that news is their own, simply summarized from other places. Epic fail!
it says it's translated from japanese.. read first.
The manufacture of 1-Gig 7.2GHz XDR Ram in production this April. http://www.xbitlabs.com/new... Note the quote that made me laugh out loud : "It is unclear whether there are customers for 7.20GHz XDR memory devices." I don't know, but if I was prepping the development & prototypes of a successor device update that currently uses 256-Mb 3.2GHz XDR Ram that is expected to have a 2-3 year engineering cycle, then manufactured for production in 4 years at year 6 of a 10 year cycle like it's predecessor . . . I JUST might know someone that might be your customer . . . and a few tens of millions of fans that might too. . Did I leave out the need to have this developed now because of the Two-Year software development cycle needed to have a minimum number of compelling launch titles available? Yes . . . I guess I did, but then it must have slipped my mind, just like who might be a customer for 7.2GHz XDR memory. Sorry!
not 'Sony!' I didn't say Sony at all. Nowhere in that message do I even mention the name SONY. If I did, what can I say to Sony...but... Sorry. . (sony)
this photo is a PSX. Just look at the controller, it has the analog button just like DS1 and DS2.
wow, some loser that guy is whoever made those things up. He should get a life and wait for official announcements, not pure speculations.
fake article.. moving along
Thats the gist. If true, Sony are goling for lower powered graphics in a hope to cash in on the Wii success of cheap to produce hardware...
... doesn't plan for the future of their products? This isn't anything odd. What I THINK they're trying to make you think by posting this info is, "OMG... PS4 SPECS!!! THEY'RE ALREADY PLANNING IT'S REPLACEMENTS!! TEH PS3 IS DOOMZ ROFLOLMAO!!!" ... which isn't working, unless it were to come out ohh... NEXT YEAR or something!!!
According to the article the PS4 is going to use a Cell processor with less cores? LOL! Yeah ok, next in the news. Jesus found in South America hiding out with Jimmy Hoffa and Anastasia Romanov! LAME
it looks weird....
