Games Late last night, Sony unveiled the PlayStation 4 - sort of. It's got a custom 8-core AMD x86-64 processor, 8GB of GDDR5 RAM, and a custom Radeon-based graphics chip. It's also got additional chips to offload specific tasks like video (de)compression (livestreaming is built-in!), and there's a large focus on streaming games, but most of it is "an ultimate goal" instead of a definitive feature. It won't play PS3 discs (but will eventually stream many PS3 games), and, while there's some weaselwording involved, second hand games are safe. The biggest surprise? The console itself wasn't shown because it's not done yet. No joke. No price, no release date (other than somewhere before the holidays).

I'd actually rather see the current gen of consoles extended a few years. The quality of games today has little to do with graphics or hardware.

Far Cry 3 for example is one of the best shooters I have played in years while Crysis 3 is freaking lame even though it has better graphix.

Oh and I used to be a heavy pc gamer so please pc elitists save your pathetic patronizing for someone who cares.
