    8 - 16GB of RAM would be fucking sweet.

    There is absolutely no chance of 16gb, and I'd be extremely surprised if the final console even got near 8. I seem to remember the WiiU dev kits reported as having 4gb, but the WiiU turns out to only have 2 and worse it only gets to use 1 for actual games. I'd be amazed and ecstatic if the ps4 had 4gb usable for games, and really that's pretty much overkill of what a game console would need. It would probably be of bigger benefit to have the SSD rather than push 8gb RAM or more.

    This sounds good, I wonder what gaming titles they are planning to release with it when it comes out. I am betting KZ4 will be one of them.
  • 7-D - November 2, 2012 2:51 p.m.

    I think so too. It's known that Guerilla Games are working on KZ4 so it's well possible. They're also working on a new IP too so it'll be interesting to see what comes out when and on what.

    16GB of RAM would be the best option. That'd give games PLENTY of room to grow in the years to come without having to worry about PC taking leaps and bounds away again. Also I hope the GPU/CPU can really compete with tomorrow's hardware. While it may be up to par for today's gear, it's going to need to last for years to come. And with the current GPU market being the way it is, upgrades are gonna be coming fast and hard.

    You could put 50GB of Ram in it. It's not the most important part of the specs on this. It's the APU which isn't exactly that great. This will be it's major bottle neck and will put it behind PC's the day the system launches. In the end to keep up with current gen PC's the PS4 would be stupidly expensive to sell.

    Well, the time certainly seems about right for info like this to be emerging. I really do hope we have some more concrete details by the time the next E3 rolls around. Similarly, it sounds odd that they might reveal the console beforehand. I hope that means they intend to use the conference to focus on other things, like the games. Also, the "affordable" descriptor didn't surprise me, what with Sony needing to cut costs whilst also learning from the mistake of the PS3 launch price. It'll be interesting to see how it and the NextBox are priced compared to the WiiU, which'll have had a fair amount of time on the market by then. Not sure they really need to bother with the 3D if I'm honest though.

    blu-ray players better be cheap by then... i don't want to be paying an extra €150 or so
  • kazimierz3000 - November 2, 2012 2:48 p.m.

    An SSD would be amazing, plausible as well since they have come down in price significantly.
  • taokaka - November 2, 2012 5:20 p.m.

    Balderdash, "affordable" is not in Sony's vocabulary instead they'll probably be pushing 4k resolution support
  • Travia220 - November 3, 2012 12:58 a.m.

    If the rumours are true this machine couldn't do 4k Resolution. Not with the A10 APU in there. It's far to weak. I doubt it would be able to effectively do 4k Video Playback.

    Snore... I may get one after it drops down to affordable Black Friday prices like I did the PS3... it was a good move, I bought all the worth while games at used prices and the only new game I bought was Uncharted 3 Lol Oddly enough... MW2's community was actually quite nice at the time... haven't check to see if it is still played in a while.
  • CUFCfan616 - November 3, 2012 1:38 a.m.

    Considering PC games don't use anywhere near 8GB or RAM, I don't see the point. This 'APU' is the important factor. DX11 capable it has to be, not only to provide the best games on the PS4, but also not to hold back PC games as they currently are. And hopefully the blu ray drive will be quicker than 2X speed.
  • Travia220 - November 3, 2012 8:36 a.m.

    DX11 will hold back PC Gaming when DX12 is released. Especially if DX12 is a big enough leap in technology. Until the day Consoles die off or aren't the main focus of developers we will always get shafted by consoles.
  • sbisset - November 4, 2012 2:26 p.m.

    Considering the original Xbox was called the "Direct-Xbox" in development, the news that microsoft may be delaying their launch of the "720/Durango" might be tactical, not actually due to technical problems. If Sony put together a console designed around DX11, only for Microsoft to release DX12 with it natively enabled on their new console, they could potentially kill any competition. Saying that, im getting a Wii U at launch. Graphics arent everything. Bring back the days when gaming was actually fun, not just overblown storylines, top end graphics and annoying voice acting to cover up for poor gameplay.

    All AMD APUs, whether this gen or last, are DX11/OpenGL4.X capable. Last gen APUs are from the Radeon HD6xxx line, this gen are from the Radeon HD7xxx line. They have all the same capabilities of their discrete counterparts but with a bit less horsepower under the hood, though with the advantage of almost entirely eliminated latency since the CPU and GPU reside on the same die and use the same memory.
  • Balaska - November 3, 2012 8:23 a.m.

    Ram is irrelevant if the bus speed is slow. Better to have 4 gb running at a blistering speed than 16 gb running slow. Any "new" console will hold back the PC, considering the fact the instant you buy a brand new just released GPU there is a new one announced that is better. A console is static, the best specs in the world won't allow it to keep up.
  • Godzillarex - November 4, 2012 1:51 a.m.

    Release date and specs aside, I really hope it doesn't end up being called Orbis, or some other silly nonsensical name. They have a good numbering system going, just stick with it.
  • amagasakiseb - November 4, 2012 8:33 a.m.

    If the next generation playstation ships with a built-in blu ray drive, wouldn't that make it the first generation of playstation not to have included a brand new media format? PS1 - CD drive , PS2 DVD Drive. PS3 Blu Ray Drive.. PS4.. Blu... ray... drive? im not complaining because it seems like the storage on blu ray is more than enough for the time being. Just an interesting observation!
  • Longnuts - November 6, 2012 6:03 a.m.

    Interesting indeed!
