There has been some confusion lately over the Wii U and if it should be called a next-generation gaming console, especially when certain reviewers are testing its specs and power compared to the aging PS3 and Xbox 360. There is no doubt the Wii U is more powerful than console hardware that’s years old, but how much of a jump will the PS4 and Xbox 720 make when they finally see a release date?
Rumors for the PS4 launch are pretty thin and any information making its way online about a date is normally either made up, or not what we would call a “solid” rumor, so what about the specs for the upcoming PlayStation 4? This article states it has exclusive information regarding the PS4 hardware, although it’s worth noting these are based on what’s likely an alpha kit.
The source claims some pretty amazing specs, which some gamers feel are too perfect and others state they “would cost too much for a games console“. One thing to remember here is that while this PS4 hardware might cost a lot today, they might not for early 2014, and also these are not final specs if taken from alpha kits.
You can see a full rundown of the possible hardware in the image above, although we’d love to hear your thoughts on this, and what price you’d be willing to pay for a setup like this? If Sony launched a PS4 with these specs it would be around 10 times the power of a PS3.
