Rumors are that MS is going for a big set top box experience .. An 8 gb DDR3 machine with 3gb dedicated to the OS... Barf... Smells like windows 8

Ps4 will apparently have 4 gb of DDR5.. 512 dedicated to the XMB I imagine... Nice and slick

sheik rock

Well if my habit of always buying the wrong system plays out, the PS4 will prob be the good system this generation.

All of the latest speculation from dev boxes are saying the machine will have 8 gig of ram.

8 gigs seems okay
question is, how much ram they going to give the gpu? and more importantly - i'm really curious as to what cpu they are throwing in there and at what clocking speeds.

I've heard so many different stories about what it might be that I'm not too sure if this is going to be an incredible jump from the ps3.

I've heard many rumours that it's going to be an AMD experience, with the cpu running with 8 cores and some sort of modified radeon gpu.

my big concern is whether they are going to throw in an SSD or a HDD for storage.
I mean... it's 2013. SSD's are the way to go. Faster everything. If it doesn't have SSD; i'll be pissed. Not gonna lie. That means i'm going to have to shell out even more money to get it swapped with a proper drive.

Sony has confirmed that the PlayStation 4 will be powered by a custom 8-core AMD "Jaguar" x86-64 with integrated graphics APU and "next-generation" AMD Radeon graphics processor capable of driving 1.84 teraflops. As detailed at the event, it will come paired with 8GB of dedicated GDDR5 memory, making it competitive with most gaming-focused PCs on the market. As expected, the system will ship with a Blu-ray drive, built-in 80.211 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, as well as HDMI, Analog-AV, and optical digital output. Sony is giving I/O options a boost with the inclusion of USB 3.0 ports and a mysteriously vague "AUX" port. Each system will ship a "Mono Headset" for cross-game chat and other social features.

Now that I've recovered from that Killzone vid...


Specs kick ass... 8 gig DDR5 , oh HELLL yes.... faster Bluray drive too.. Ps3 is 2x, Ps4 is 6x... USB 3.0 is nice, nice option there for superfast external HD bidness

No mention of HDD specs, platter vs. SSD... but the little icon in the presentation showed a platter.... maybe I'm reading into it too much

Everything about the console makes sense, I'm glad they went to all the devs and asked for their input this time, asking what they would want in terms of hardware and software... instead of just throwing in what they thought would work..

Some features that looked/sounded awesome... instant suspend and resume mid game, one touch uploading to the web... the game streaming looked so cool, you can share your game video feed with the touch of a button and your friends can watch you play your game and chat in the same window...

this, Official ‘second screen’ Playstation PS4 app for iOS and Android announced | 9to5Mac

The Quantic Dream tech demo blew me away too, but they always do hehe

What else, Blizzard joining forces with Sony, bringing Diablo and future titles to the machine!!... Bungie finally making its way to the PS was awesome too with Destiny... Xbox only has Halo left as their last triple A exclusive hah... Meanwhile Sony still has all their first party devs locked down and exclusive, the reason I stick with PS... the GAMES

Really excited in the direction this machine is going and can't wait to see it... when Yoshida was asked why it wasnt revealed, he said 'well we need something to show off later' .. lolz


TRIBE Member
Yeah same.. gotta build the hype I guess... guess someone over there decided to take a marketing course... Don't blow your wad all at once

I'm hoping for a reveal and a release date/price at E3 this year.

Doubt it will come even that soon. They likely want to get a handle on a) what per unit production costs will be on mass production in the several months leading up to launch and b) what MS might be setting for launch price of the next XBox.

They're gonna keep that number tight to the chest until they better know both of the above so they can price it as competitively as possible.

So yeah, thats pretty fucking delicious for a console !

i will def sell my 360 and PS3 for one of these. i should sell them now and set aside the money since i dont every play the fucking things hahahahaha.


what if i dont play my PS4 :(

le sigh.
So do you guys think they're going to price it too high and fuck themselves again like they did with the PS3?

It does sound like an impressive piece of hardware, but they're really going to have to deliver if they want to break that $500 threshold that most won't go beyond when buying a console.
