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).

Don't judge game footage off a stream.

Other than that, compare an early-gen Xbox 360 game to a late-gen one. World of difference.

Gears of War: Judgement looks awesome indeed, especially with render filters (like dust in first act).

Next gen games will look incredible, despite "qq my pc is fasterz".

I think the main problem is not the hardware, rather the budgets and the art direction.

TBH Assassins Creed 2 (I only got a PS3 recently) looks lovely on my PS3 and visually it is more than good enough.
