just wondering what you guys think about this...... probably fake but i thought i would post it anyways............... http://www.picvalley.net/v.php?p=u/2564/66019497913364665701335371811EYYTYMYO6t5DKeUrNGxF.JPG
If this is fake, is is a very good one. These specs indicate that the PS4 will be a superset of the PS3 hardware, and will be BC with PS3, PS2, and PS1 games. I like that it mentions that is supports BDXL format, which I believe supports up to 100GB of data on one disc.
Thanks for sharing!
It's a fake.
The insider that released the specs found in articles that made the rounds about a month ago already said that Sony was abandoning the Cell processor in the PS4.
This insider, by the way, has apparently a very good track record according to the reporters of the article, so I am inclined to believe them over this rather suspicious looking picture.
Also, when companies have a code name for something, it is so people can't figure out what the retail name of the product will be when just glancing at the information. As such, there is little point to have a document that directly tells you that Orbis is the code name for the PlayStation 4 System.
Kinda defeats the purpose of having a code name doesn't it?

I remember the newest rumors on the PS4 specs, that basically point to having the same CPU/GPU as the "Xbox 720", which basically has the specs of a high-end PC. With that senario, I'm not to sure what is going to differentiate the PS4 & Xbox 720 technology-wise for the consumer, but developers will sure be happy not having to do to much different to develop on both systems.
The specs shown in the picture seems plausable to me if Sony wants to maintain compatibility with PS3 software. Since developers have finally gotten used to programming the CELL, it would be to Sony's advantage to provide a processor that has 16X the processing power to those same developers.
I'm not totally convinced it is a fake, I am going to keep an open mind about it...
I'm always wary of these types of threads but I'll keep an open mind too, I'm curious about the DS4 as well.

It does look pretty convincing, but the memory seems unrealistic to me - 20 GB of ram total. The next console definitely needs more than the PS3, but this seems unlikely.
I thought that seemed a bit high too, but PC RAM prices in my area are pretty cheap these days.
