In news that will no doubt shock you to your bones and turn your world upside down, PlayStation magazine PSM3 has said that the next console from Sony, currently happily dubbed the PS4, will be ‘more powerful’ than the next Xbox. Which doesn’t have an official name yet – at least publicly. I’m calling it Terry.
Picked up by fellow Future publication CVG, which also features lots of ways to buy the magazine when it’s released next week, PSM3 says that the PS4 will be out mere ‘months’ behind Terry, the latter running off a PowerPC chipset and starring Kinect 2.0 (and hopefully a Dashboard that isn’t utterly horrible to use).
Both machines will be on show at this year’s E3, third parties have indicated, with many speculating that the next generation of consoles, both PS4 and Terry, will be available in 2013. I’m happy about this, hopefully the new machines will be capable of 1080p in more than about five games, and run at decent framerates in 3D.
Got to feel a bit sorry for Nintendo’s Wii U, mind.
