New Xbox Reveal Date Plus Next PlayStation Info

Written by Luuk on Sun, Nov 18, 2012 10:45 AM

Sony announced their reveal date for the new PlayStation a short while ago, of course this meant Microsoft couldn't stay silent.

The new Xbox will be revealed before the E3 event, and will bring a new innovative controller. There is also some new information about the new PlayStation...

Both consoles do not yet officially have the name "Xbox 720" or "PlayStation 4", what the names will be is still to be confirmed. What we do know, however, is that the new Xbox will have Kinect integrated in the system, whereas right now you have to buy the Kinect device separately.

The new Xbox is also said to support Blu-ray, which was to be expected with the increasing size of games due to improved graphics and detail. Directional sound will also be supported, and there would also be plans to introduce augmented reality-glasses in a later stage.

Furthermore will the new Xbox use a 4-core CPU and 8 GB of RAM, as opposed to the 4 GB RAM of the new PlayStation. Keep in mind that these systems are most likely still prototypes, and everything can still be changed before the official launch.

New PlayStation

The new PlayStation is not attaching the number "4" to it's name, since that would sound like "death" in Japanese, according to the magazine PSM3. The new console will be revealed during the E3 with a standard resolution of 1080p and 60 FPS.

The new console will not be backwards compatible with the PlayStation 3. The games will probably be able to be played through cloud however. Also PlayStation Plus is said to be playing a big role in the new console. Next to this, the new PlayStation will make use of 4 GB of RAM as mentioned earlier, and use an AMD 4-core Processor. The avarage price is estimated to be around 400 to 500 euro's.

Well. Looks like they finally supported 1080p. FINALLY. Now they will laugh at us, until one more year, where we get larger resolutions running at 120 FPS... And I've heard the PS4 is going to be -$600, so I don't think many people will buy it.

The price will be the problem only in the first year. Also, there's no official info from Sony about whether it will support 2560x1440. Fingers crossed!

2560x1440 would be nice for watching movies, but if the games can't run at that res without screentearing or pour framerate then its almost useless...

playstation 3: 8 cores.
playstation 4: 4 cores.
It seems a long way consoles actually use the power of eight cores optimized. Is it true this inequality? 8 cores ps3 &#604core ps4? At any performance test?

PlayStation 3: 7 cores*
But those cores are single-threaded and Xbox 360 has 3 dual-threaded cores.
The pure number of cores doesn't really matter, take smartphones for example, the dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 kills the quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 in benchmarks.

Yeah but the PS3 had 8/7 cores with 3.2 ghz and the PS4 is estimated to have 4 cores with 2.9 ghz. The number of cores isn't that necessary for gaming but it would be nice if it was more than just a gaming console. Hopefully the new CPU will be as complex as the PS2s.

NVIDIA Tegra 3 is the CHIPSET. The CPU of that chipset is called "ARM Cortex A9". The GPU of that chipset is "ULP GeForce" (I think ULP stands for "Ultra Low Power" or something).

The only thing I like about consoles is you don't ever have random crashes to desktop, you don't have to make sure your CPU/GPU and their drivers are good enough, and the console will always play the games that are released for it.

I'm not taking a dig at the PC because i love my PC. But when you start to run low on money and new games that come out demand new hardware, the PC takes a huuuuuuuge toll on your wallet. PLus, framerate is never a problem on consoles.

PS3 has framerate problems! GranTrismo5 isn't that smooth and constantly the image tears at 1080p, screen tearing is reduced but still there at 720p. Not to sure about the Xbox360 but I think it has framerate issues too. PC is the way to go... :)

Bro - It would cost too much to implament. PS3 is BWC with PS1 cuz it was SUPER cheap. If it were BWC with PS2 games it was gonna cost like 1K to buy, A PS4 BWC with PS3 would be like 5K to buy. Look at it logically: Sony already lost 60% of Profit on PS3 cuz theres so much in it.

but i would love to pay A LOT for some console like that, BWC with almost all playstation games
i don't care for the price
i just care for the framerate and PS1 GAME HAHAHAHA the memories
but if they cannot afford to make a console like what i said then game developers should make ps4 ports for their games
game remakes just like megaman zero collection (megaman zero games that are actually from gba)

Thats easy to understand why they used amd in console. If they want to have the lowest cost possible with the best performance, they will take cheaper cpu and gpu so AMD are the best choice. For the best perf/price in this range I would take an A8 core with hd 7670 in it. For console this should deliver 60 fps and good visual I would easily compare it to this pc gen. But when they will be out, the pc will already have the new gpu/cpu gen.

Neh man, I'd go for a 6xxx series, 6750 specifically, it offers better performance at a similar price, anyway they will never use those actual gpus, they will base them on a gpu, underclock it a bit and name it something like "ultra graphics displayer sintethizer super dopey dope"

well not so much of a big jump i would say a tiny leap because look at the PS3 you already have 3D compatibility on it and the graphics is already at like the medium settings for PC (to my point of view) so mainly the PS4 would most likely be on High Settings and after the next console would be max

It WILL be a big jump for graphics in consoles. However, it will not be a big jump for PC graphics. Why? Simple, the current generation of consoles run games using DirectX 9. PC games usually run with DirectX 11. I expect the next generation to run games with DX11 because the Wii U is capable of DX11 support (and we all know how Microsoft and Sony LOVE to humiliate Nintendo with their specs).
Currently, only a few games released for PC support DX11. But, with the next generation of consoles, the amount of games with DX11 should rise.

I think nintendo did wrong, but not because of the wii U and how it is and the tablet controller and stuff (I think that is great, actually), they did wrong because they released the console before the ps4 and xbox 720, now they launch their consoles with beast (and also unnecessary) specs.
Nintendo is, once again, in a limbo between the current generation and the next generation and will be dissed and insulted by young ignorant gamer-wannabe 14 year-old kids (except Oratane, he's cool and not an ignorant person :D)

Unlike Microsoft and Sony, Nintendo actually goes for gamer's wants and not the game's wants, theres a difference there. You know when Wii launched right? Did it blow Xbox 360 or PS3 out of the water specs-wise? They'd care less how good a game looks from other consoles as long as it looks good. Wii, regardless of the majority, gave good looking games and I don't remember when they were in a limbo?
Just for you to know, Wii, dispute coming off last among the Big-Three consoles, leads the overall sales count by a huge margin and that's total obliteration. I love playing the Wii with my Siblings. More fun than the other two really ;)
I have no doubt that the Wii U is what most gamers will embrace and now it being available to the 'hardcore' gamers as well, Expect it to whoosh-and-swoosh past it's upcoming siblings :)

I love the Wii too, and mainly because it's DIFFERENT. PS3 and Xbox are just a PC with lower specs. Nintendo always pushes the bar in terms of innovation, then Sony and Microsoft just try to copy that.
What I meant about a limbo was about the specs, mainly. And leaving graphics aside, having lower and different specs also affects the type of games you get and the experiences you can have in the console. For example, DiRT 2 sucks on the Wii. Not only because it looks like a Gamecube game, but also because of the controls. The same goes for Call of Duty (I think it's incredible how that game can be worse haha). The exception for this are all the games made only for the Wii. All the Nintendo games look so beautiful!

I think I started talking about something different.
The thing is: developers will be making games thinking of Xbox 720/PS4's specs and then just port a lower quality game for the Wii U. Lower quality in graphics, optimization, and controls.

Firstly, Nintendo never made the Wii for western developers. It was a casual gaming hardware that Japan are very proud of.
Secondly, did you see the Launch titles for the Wii U. They turned out to be really nice and so will the future. Again, what according to you would matter the most for the developers? ;)
Hint: Nintendo walks over their opponents.

I know, but that's now... I think there will be a day we will hear "Oh, sorry Wii U owners, but we will not develop this game for your console because the specs do not meet the requirements".
Dude, I really like Nintendo, I really do. And I hate that microsoft and sony always have to troll nintendo's efforts in innovation by releasing consoles with better specs and exploiting their "hardcore gamer" franchises (halo, cod, god of war, etc.).
I really miss those times when Smash Bros. Melee was considered a hardcore game...
