Next Gen consoles will use 8 core mobile processor from AMD with "Jaguar" technology in mind. So much for next gen.
Previous last gen Quad Core CPU from Intel shits on it. Grandma's these days have i5 processor that is already more powerfull then the next gen according to Digital foundry then.
But one thing is good for sure for the PC is that both XBOX and next PS is heavily based on the traditional PC hardware. Basically they are PC's and with that, ports will be much easier to make for the PC's which is really good news.
I remember when PS3 and Xbox 360 launcched, first year was a mess for the PC because of shitty hardware from both consoles.
"That said, the AMD connection that defines both Durango and Orbis confirms that both consoles are much closer in design to gaming PCs than their predecessors, which may result in stronger ports to the computer format" (c)
I'm interested in SteamBox hardware. That will be interesting. If they are going to make a console where you can upgrade the hardware then good bye Sony and MS. I will never return to them.
"not to mention the upcoming Steam Box - a piece of hardware free to evolve and grow more powerful year upon year in a way that Sony and Microsoft's boxes can't." (c)
@monkey, the only reason why Sony had crappy multiplat titles is because of crappy Cell microprocessor CPU, now, PS4 hardware is heavily based on the PC hardware so if PS4 is more powerfull then the next XBOX, multiplat titles will look better on the PS4 without a doubt.
