There seems to be so many conflicting stories when it comes to the PS4 and the Xbox 720, most of which are to do with the actual release date. Now we cannot say for certain if and when these two consoles will be released and what they will be called, but what if the two were to join forces?
If there were to ever be an ultimate games console then it might not be called the Xbox 720 or the PS4, as both Sony and Microsoft would need to work together. ITWire believes that the former would be better in supplying the hardware, and latter could deal with the software side of things. Before gamers start to give this idea a hard time, why not consider it, as this would give you want you have always wanted, the best hardware and software working in unison together.
It is inevitable that Sony and Microsoft will release new consoles, but we do not think that they have anything to worry about with the Nintendo Wii U, as we believe that they have been a little conservative with its design. But what if the Wii U was to take off like the original Wii, could we see a repeat of them controlling the market, as Apple has with their iPad 2?
Now we know that this is never likely to happen, but if the two were to join forces we could finally see a console that would truly be worth the money. Depending who you ask, the Sony PS3 is considered to have better hardware than the Xbox 360. However, it is the software that lets things down, so Microsoft would have that covered, along with a complete Cloud system.
The ultimate console would be able to call upon the best of both worlds, so whatever Sony are good at can concentrate on that area, while Microsoft can do what they are good, at. Now we could see that this would cause an issue, as both companies would say that they are best in all areas.
So this would mean that we would need someone who is not biased in charge – maybe a true gaming fan. We are not talking about a gamer that is loyal to any one console, but one who can see the good in all. Now we do see one issue with this, the price could spiral out of control. However, if you knew that you could get the ultimate games console, would it be worth paying just a couple of hundreds dollars more for?
