Games Sony just won the console war for this generation. Not only is the PS4 going to be cheaper, Sony's CEO gloated on stage last night at E3 with the biggest possible grin as he detailed that all that nonsensical DRM crap that Microsoft is pulling, like blocking used games sales and stuff like that? Yeah, Sony's PS4 will have none of that. Sony even made an instructional video to explain how sharing games works.

I think Sony won this generation console wars right there. They have better hardware, full openGL support (to port gl games to ps4 is a breeze) working sync, media center functionality and also controls the blue-ray market to some extent. Add to that the friendlier approach to used games and also the ability to run linux. Microsoft has to pull something radical to even stand a chance.

I am in no way a fanboy and i own no newer console than the Sega Saturn, but i know when to fold PS4 will battle nintendo for the top spot and microsoft lost unless they manage to secure some really impressive exclusives.

Really?!

Almost no one was using the OpenGL support in PS3, but rather libCGM.

Although I don't have access to the PS4 devkit, I am yet to see any confirmation of OpenGL support in the usual technical sites of the gaming communities.

It's using a Jaguar-based APU.
*Not* having full OpenGL support would be odd.

Any reliable source for that "almost no one used PSGL" claim? Not that I don't believe it, but apparently, the only ones that keep repeating it are people who aren't even licensed PS3 developers.
