Sony’s latest console brings with it the possibility that its upcoming console is the most powerful console ever designed. However, as any gamer will tell you, it’s not an all-out contest. One particular console is going to be difficult to beat.
Xbox 360 is still the king of gaming consoles in my mind, however with the new PS4 coming out, Sony has now moved up to the position of second place. The PS4 is being heavily scrutinized for its next-gen features, which could include a better graphics card, a cheaper one, or perhaps even a Kinect.
There are also rumors that the PS4 is going to be the first console to support a 4k display. This could mean that Sony’s next-gen features could be put under the hood to compete with the Xbox One. In other words, a console that can take advantage of the newest gaming features could actually be a rival to the Xbox One.
Sony doesn’t have a 4k display and is instead going to use the GPU in the PS3 to make the games look better on the next-gen console. However, both Sony and Microsoft have been known to go with the best possible hardware and thus create a console that is both strong and useful, and that’s why we’ll likely see games running on the PS4 next-gen as well.
It makes sense, since the PS4 could have a 4k display if they wanted to, but they could also use the PS3 GPU for that. While it should be possible to get games that look great on the Xbox One, a next-gen console with a 4k display is nothing short of a game-breaker.
Games like Star Wars: Battlefront are great on the Xbox One, but the Xbox One might not be as strong as a PS4 for a game like Gears of War. But I guess the console-game divide can’t be overstated.
In the long run, a 4k screen will only get better. If it can make the Xbox One a game-breaker, why can’t it make the PS4 a game-breaker? It’s only a matter of time before the PS4 finally gets its own 4K console. The current generation of consoles has been getting better all the way to the PS4.
One of the most popular questions that PC gaming sites put to PC gamers and the gaming media is “Is the PC any good?” And the truth is that the PC is in a lot of ways as bad as it’s ever been. For years we’ve been told that gaming on a PC was a bad idea. There are now a lot more powerful computers being used for gaming than were ever used for running a PC back in the day.
Before the end of the last decade or so, that was a good thing. There was a lot of hype around PCs and their ability to run certain games. Before then they were simply too powerful, and the games they could run simply couldn’t compete with the games that could run on PCs today. But now we are seeing gaming PCs that are more powerful than any computers ever sold to gamers. That means that PCs today are gaming PCs.
But the PC market is only in the “gaming” segment. It does not include anything for the general consumer. It is a segment that is more about the gaming market than the mainstream.
