No one has a clue as to what hardware changes will be made once Microsoft and Sony release their Xbox 720 (rumored name) and the PS4. We know that it will move on, but we have no idea how – although we have had a few ideas. There are those of you who will always stick to a brand, but we should be open to change, as the next updated console might not offer you what the current one does.
What we mean is, you could currently enjoy the feel of the Xbox 360, along with the interface and the smoothness of the graphics when compared to the PlayStation 3. However, that could all change and the PS4 could then offer the better option, or vice versa. Don’t start panicking yet, as you will not have to make the choice anytime soon — or do we?
We say this because we reported yesterday that a Microsoft employee has admitted to be working on a next-gen console, but no time frame has been given. It’s hard to guess when either company will launch their new console, but we wouldn’t be surprised if they were very close to each other.
What we can expect is a more sleek and slimmer design, along with cutting edge technology inside. We still expect Sony to have the edge when it comes hardware, but not certain if they will be able to pull the gap when it comes to software, as Microsoft and its Xbox Live Dashboard is far more superior than PSN — although that one has always been up for debate.
Both Sony and Microsoft will make our choice much tougher with their next-generation consoles, and with not as many exclusives as there one was, just maybe that decision will be easier to make than it has been in the past?
