Re: PS4 tech as advanced as PS3 was?

There isn't a day that goes by when I am NOT impressed by my PS4. From the moment I saw the pictures on the internet to the day I saw display pieces in stores to the day I got mine in the mail (Dec 20th-ish) I was blown away by the compactness of the thing. I was impressed by how small it was. It was smaller than the PS3 and significantly smaller than the Xbox One and more powerful than both. Even the internals of the PS4 seemed so much more elegant and meticulously placed, including the ICs, chips and even the cooling fan, while the Xbox was a bit haphazard and dense and somewhat messy. I couldn't help but be impressed by its smaller stature and while I couldn't appreciate it so much from pictures on the internet, when I saw with my own eyes I instantly fell in love with it. And then the design was also breath-taking. Again, it was a case of love at first sight when I saw it myself. While it seemed unassuming on the internet in pictures, at close angles it looked great. However the single most awesome part was the back grill. It just looked so bad-**bleep**! It honestly looked somewhat like the exhausts of some fighter jets!

 

And to think that this bad boy has 8 gigs of GDDR5 RAM, the most expensive kind there is, and such amazing internals, and at such a price point and so quiet and unassuming - just a piece of art from Sony. Sony may be failing with its PC and TV divisions, they may have stagnated in those areas in terms of innovation and product quality, but this PS4, it oozes premium quality and meticulously handcrafted engineering from all corners. Marvelous piece of art.

 

Kudos to the Sony PlayStation team!


As I said the more i research PC components the more I am impressed by the PS4's hardware/form factor.

 

Its far ahead of the software currently available for it.  

 

I know if the software catches up the PS4 will be untouchable.

 

But much like the uncertain future of AMD APU's line I am not confident enough to justify the purchase, yet.

 

 I dont want 3 consoles in my entertainment center, just let the PS4 do what one of my PS3's do, or at least tell me one day it will.

 

All I want is a verbal reach around by Sony to let me know they still care.

patience, Philly, patience.

 

i can see almost everything coming in the next year, but i don't see them announcing anything until some of the other issues are fixed, like the save file loss/corruption issue that keeps happening to people. also, the issues with sonys headsets causing problems, among other smaller issues. IMO, those should take priority before adding new things.
