There are plenty of rumours about next-gen tech, and while some of the are accurate, plenty of them end up to be utter nonsense. This one, however, comes from Richard Leadbetter of Digital Foundry/Eurogamer.
He thinks that the PS4 will be comparable to a PC, and be technologically similar to it. It could be an x86 architecture based console, unlike the unique Cell processor based architecture of the PS3.
“It’s not about exotic, groundbreaking hardware anymore, it’s all about creating the best possible games machine with an enviable set of development tools – and it’s an approach that has already yielded results,” he revealed.
“While PlayStation Vita may lack a stand-out killer app, I still think that it’s set the bar in terms of overall quality and quantity over and above any console launch I’ve seen in over 21 years in the business.
“Extrapolating that same philosophy towards PlayStation 4 makes a PC-style approach to Sony’s next console seem very likely indeed.”
