PS4

I got my PS4 set up today and slotted in the new COD Ghosts.
It looks brilliant as does Battlefield 4. The graphics are well up to gaming PC standards.

Then I woke up Cry

Re: PS4

I can't wait either, November 29th the PS4 is released here.
But however, I certainly won't be relying on PlusNet for gaming that's for sure!!

Re: PS4

Maybe not but at least you don't need 12 fingers.
Still, it looks quite highly spec'd http://uk.playstation.com/ps4/features/techspecs/

Main processor
   Single-chip custom processor
   CPU: low power x86-64 AMD "Jaguar", 8 cores
   GPU: 1.84 TFLOPS, AMD next-generation Radeon™ based graphics engine

I'm a little surprised at the 500GB hard drive in these days of multi terabyte drives.
Then again....

Re: PS4

Based on the fact the gaming industry has been shaped around consoles and there hardware. Lets hope the new gen of games will be programed with multithreading in mind and maybe AMD can redeem its self. Because as it stand my bulldozer fx 8 core is pointless and if anything makes games run slower with its underpowered single core ability, due to the single core size.

Re: PS4

Yes the hardware sucks but you miss the point. You don't need more than one CPU chip, this isn't a server. Consoles don't have to deal with heavy OS software.
If anything I see the PS4 specs as a good thing. You got the 8 core CPU driving the game market to use more than one or two cores to run the game engine. Then you got the fact the PS4 CPU will be clocked under 1.5ghz for heat reasons I can only guess. That gives so much head room for PC gaming with our 4-5ghz 8 core CPU's and that's without buying new chips.
I dunno about you guys but it's been too long since Ive seen a good working game new on the market. They all seem to be full of bugs and have performance issues.
The only odd ball here or elephant in the room is microsoft and the xbox. Who seem to be on a destructive mission.
