    Bit misleading the thread title tbh!

    Should be "both next gen console hardware-a bit shitter than expected" as opposed to the "glolplaystationisshit" that the title alludes to, no?

    They've gone bust anyway, but that's the publisher's faults. It's nothing to do with the hardware.

    And then small Polish and Ukranian devs have owned the bleeding edge of the hardware's capabilities.

    I bet you haven't got a clue what any of that means.

    Actually, I know you haven't got a clue what any of that means. Every number on it is theoretical, not only that but each is to the capacity of the hardware, meaning it might be able to display 20 odd million tris, but in reality they'll never have to display more than 30-50k at any given moment.

    It might have a 10 or 12 gb/sec frame buffer, but it's never going to use more than 400mb/sec.

    And so on.

    Comparing a list of numbers is about as pointless as it gets. I'm not saying the PS3 isn't a load of shit though, it clearly is but not only because of the corner cutting GPU.

    See, it was so much easier in the "bit" era. None of this blurb like above - you just knew that a Snes was 16 bit - ergo twice as good as an 8 bit Nes!

    Holy shit, bro - TWICE AS GOOD???

    Sold!

    Dirtbox threads are always the worst, most pointless shit on the forum.

    Thanks. Do you have an opinion on the subject or did you just come in for an unprovoked attack?

    If the next gen can really provide 1080p60 gaming with visual quality to match the resolution then that will be a very welcome leap over what we have now.
    I hardly think that's unobtainable since PC's have been doing exactly that for several years now.
    It's not crucial to aim for imo considering you're generally sitting a fair distance from the goggle box compared to PC gaming on a monitor.

    Bigger screen though. You might as well be asking what the point in HD tv channels is.

    I suppose, but I'd rather it didn't get in the way of a nicer image.

    The resolution/quality tradeoff hasn't mattered in ages.

    I'd rather they increased frame rates before making the jump from 720p to 1080p. Ofc perfect scenario would be to support both resolutions but allow the output at 720p to have a better frame rate. That won't happen though.

    Of course it does, you seen Battlefield on consoles? wholly lack of AA batman! :D

    Hardly resorting to insults was it, unless Dirtbox has lost his touch and no one told me about it.

    They'll coincide the launch with the bluray version like last time.

    As long as I can hook up my three 4k 3D displays and use my ps vita as a rear view mirror it's all good for me.

    I'm more interested to see what kitchen appliance it resembles, can they find a more stunning design than the George Foreman Grill.

    On a more serious note, I hope they've found a quiet solution to the overheating problems that have plagued this generation.

    Wonder if they'll actually manage a simultaneous worldwide launch for PS4 after the broken promises of this gen.

    Whatever happens I'm sure they'll be showing boxart and bullshots for GT6 ready for when it comes out 4 years after the console does.

    I was just showing some clear theoretical differences in horsepower, it's well known and accepted throughout the industry that the Xenos GPU is significantly better performing than the RSX.

    It's nice to be able to discuss gaming without immediately resorting to insults but I guess that it would be unrealistic in a thread that sets out it's stall as a trollfest from the beginning.
    Apologies if that's how it came across, it wasn't meant to be aggressive sounding. You're about 30% right by pointing out the difference in the numbers, but really the only number there that matters is the texture memory. The fill rates, transistor counts and pixel counts aren't worth mentioning.

    Believe me, you'd know if I was trying to be insulting.
