Honestly, yeah the PS4 is going to be a powerhouse compared to the Wii-U. Its going to be as superior if not more than the PS3 was over the Wii.


the specs are already leaked for the PS4, and they show it's not that large of a leap.


Uh? Are you kidding me? They are going to have 8gbs of ram, and its predicted the PS4 will have a GPU with 2.2gbs of VRAM. This will allow for much higher resolution textures, as well as draw distances. These blocky textures on the current consoles that look like a checker board when you zoom in will look a whole lot cleaner.

If the rumors are true, they could have pushed the hardware further. It's more like the PS4 won't be a powerhouse against the PC in the upcoming years, but it's still a powerhouse compared to the Wii U that got gimped in hardware components comparable to last generation.


Not with a 6670, it won't be.

Just accept the fact that, while it will be a bit more powerful than Wii U, nothing made for the PS4 will be impossible on the Wii U.

At WORST, you're looking at a 1080p game on the PS4 being done in 720 on the Wii U, with the same or similar graphical capabilities.

Min. MSRP: $499-$1000 USD

And that pretty much threw all credibility this website had out the window.

WTF. Why should he accept the fact of something that hasn't even been proven yet? You can't accept the fact when you're making assumptions, and just speculating.

But Latebraker isn't?

I'm pointing out that according to the very rumors Latebraker references, it won't be as powerful as he thinks it will be.

GoombaX, where in that article does it say the PS4 will not be powerful? It even links a page to it's as I quote "BEEFY" specs. Sony is just not going to try and market the specs but market it as a completely central entertainment system for everything, it's just how they're going to market it.

Now once again, show me where it's going to be weak? The specs they linked on that page absolutely stomp the Wii U to the ground.

3.2 GHz PowerPC Tri-Core Xenon

3.2 GHz Cell Broadband Engine with 1 PPE & 6 SPEs


So, the 1.6Ghz 8-core CPUs in the next Xbox and PS4 must only be a smidgen more powerful than their predecessors then. Doesn't sound like powerhouse material to me.


8 Cores >>>> 3 cores
