    lol, would it be quicker to say that I think the other dude was talking BS and was making about as much sense as a deep-fried salad?

    I just wanted to know the specifics of why he was wrong, and to what degree, by asking some mildly relevant questions.


    ... Bet it's because I left the friggin caps lock on when i made my account -_-

    the way I understand the whole thing is people by consoles for a fue reasons.
    yes its a lot of money outlay for old tec but in 6 year's time there will be new games comeing out for it that will look good and play good and the user will not have to do anything like upgrading parts or looking at the speck requirements on the back and wondering wheather its going run.

    Hah, I'm glad these guys aren't into smartphones. They'd explode when they saw HTC One X, One X+ and then the HTC One.

    It´s marketing:

    - ps2 - xbox (it´s the first console by microsoft, couldn´t be much else to it)
    - ps3 - xbox 360
    - ps4 - xbox one (notice the intentional, powerful meaning of the word one, as in a revolution)

    Anyway, your post doesn´t make sense and i want some of that stuff you´re smoking. :D

    Are PS4-only games going to sell for £100 a pop, then?
    As it is, I mainly use my PS3 as a BluRay disc player.

    I'm starting to think that Killzone is "the" launch title I'm really liking the game it actually seems very polished. At least the SP campaign haven't messed with MP yet.

    I can't afford a PS4 at the moment, slightly jealous.

    After trading my Xbox360 and second PS3 in I only payed $50 for mine. GameStop was paying double (+90% almost double) for consoles traded towards your PS4.

    Quick cost estimate?

    These people obviously don't know how much the console costs because they will pay much less than that based on the fact they will be ordering millions upon millions of these chips. Unless they have read the contracts Sony and Microsoft have with all the different chip makers, this is nothing but hearsay and tosh.

    The quick costs estimates are rubbish with no foundation.

    Personally, I'd rather spend $500+ on one part for my PC than $500 for an entire console. It's the Hod Rod vs Factory Built Fast Car argument.

    Yet my "Hot Rod" CRX is not as fast as my S2000 that was stock. Not the best analogy. I get what you are saying but after using my PS4 it is a good jump in performance from the previous gen and the visuals are on par with what we are seeing on PC currently.

    We're talking "professional grade" hot rods vs factory cars, not tune-up a low-end car to try and match a high-end car. For example, a S2000(PS4) vs Bullet Car (PC). Built from the ground up, using hand-picked parts for maximum performance. Sure, the S2000 is more accessible to more people, but the bullet car is built for enthusiasts, by enthusiasts.
