    Martok-
    Over the last couple of days, specs for the forthcoming X720 and PS4 have been revealed/leaked. None of this is confirmed as the final specification but seems to come from specs leaked about dev kit that has gone to developers.

    Firstly the X720:

    Secondly the PS4:

    http://kotaku.com/5977849/the-plays...ncy-user-accounts-and-impressive-specs-so-far


    So, what do you think of these leaks? How close is this information to what we'll actually get in the final consoles? Are you swayed in any direction based on this information? What do yo think of Sony's development of accounts?

    There's also some bollocks about the Kinect 2 coming with the new xbox plus it's supposed to be a media hub where everything can connect to it W8 phone and a new X tablet dedicated for the x box as a media controller aswell as a W8 tablet.

    If Sony change the dual shock to be anything but a games controller I will be very disappointed, we don't need non of that touch screen shit.

    Not swayed at all by anything on there, though the info about how you can log in with multiple accounts at the same time on PS4 is quite interesting...I suspect XBOX will have a similar feature, but I don't see it being very important to a majority of gamers.

    As with JK i'm very interested in how they are both going to cater for real gamers in terms of user interface. Not interested in the gimmicks at all.

    You might want to read this first.......

    A gift from Microsofts own Major Nelson, which I think has been posted up to demonstrate & highlight that nothings been revealed as of yet.

    If the controller has all this extra gubbins they will be expensive to buy, just had to buy a new dual shock, they do wear out eventually.

    I must be quite lucky as I've only had 3 controllers for my PS3's (the same number as i've had PS3's in fact) and they all work still.

    My launch day Sixaxis has some sloppy play on one of the sticks, but I think that's more down to it getting little to no use these days. I've got two Dual Shocks and they both function perfectly, though the left stick on both have a groove from pushing forward on FPS games a LOT.

    It's bound to be something shite.

    Sounds like it could well be hardware or service related as opposed to a game though given the info so far.

    Official confirmation that they are working on a PS4 perhaps? I'm not sure if that ever happened yet, I don't think it did.

    It could be the next PS HOME venture that they're bringing out.

    PS4 is sceduled for release spring 2014 according to a press release. It will be slightly better than the new Xbox given the current specs.

    As has been said before, ALL of what has come out is RUMOUR.

    The only official line at all from Sony is that they will be making an announcement on the 20th of February regarding the future of playstation.

    Not so much as an official announcement confirming the machines exist from either Microsoft or Sony unless I've missed something.

    The info here is coming from anonymous sources from Edge magazine (UK) as Slaine posted and Polygon. So I don't know how reliable these parties are.

    Would like the PS4, but money doesn't flow as it once did. So release day purchase is highly unlikely.

    At the moment I am quite happy with the PS3, there are a lot of game I have yet to play, it makes more sense to play those I want to play before moving. With a baby on the way this year, I cant see my self having much gaming time anyway, so I can afford to wait and see which console come out ahead. Having said that , I believe that there will not be much to decide between them so it would be a case of seeing which provides best value for money over the long term. If sony keep general gaming free then it will probably be them I go with them, I really enjoyed the sony exclusives like Uncharted, killzone, Journey, pixel junk etc so I feel no need to move manufacturer, but obviously if sony screw up, then I have no qualms about moving.
