    According to VGLeaks.

    Site VGLeaks has posted the supposed roadmap for Sony's upcoming console, hinting a possible 2013 release.

    [​IMG]

    Website VGLeaks, has posted a roadmap for Sony's upcoming PlayStation 4 'ORBIS' console, citing the product lifecycle since 2011.

    It also suggests a potential 2013 release for the console...

    The site has posted some other interesting info in the past, including some about the XBOX 720's 'Durango' Alpha kit and the Wii U's Final specs, which actually match with other recent rumors and leaks floating on the net.

    However, and as always, take these with a grain of salt!

      ...so if this is true, the next xbox and playstation are pretty much the same hardware.

      Well same hardware is good I think.. at least the multiplatforms should be equal on both and the exclusive games can be awesome like they are already on this gen!

      I personally am gonna buy a Loop though :(
      I get the feeling it will be the better console

      Both Loop and Orbis will have for sure 100% the same graphics chipset from AMD.

      But the amount of RAM and actual CPU will be different.

      But these days it is the GRAPHICS side of brain that matters the most.

      Both having the same graphics engine will hopefully make it easier for developers.

      But Sony been giving the developers on their side a bad run, since they have to code everything on the cloud, no actual SDK in their hands anymore.

      Meh, I'm going to wait until it's release and then I'll pick up an RGH 360 and a couple of 2 TB hdd's and load them up with games. That will probably be my last system and with the number of titles I never got to play on the 360, it will probably last me the rest of my life.

      I'll have my wii U for the new multiplatformers.....

      If what you say is true, I will not be buying either , If the Xbox isn't a fair way ahead of the Orbis id be surprised , I cant see Microsoft holding back on power just to make it easier for devs on cross platform games to suit who Sony ? And Sony isn't willing to spend as much as Microsoft this time round because of the shit they are in , So it would be a case of us losing to save on costs ?, If they have entered into a monopoly count me out it stinks!

      Don't get the reason to be pissed..
      Both specs are miles ahead of the current generation of consoles.
      Again it's nowhere near top PC performance levels, but so it always was. (spare me from repeating buzz about oh so fast Cell CPU)

      Costs aside, high performance PC levels means lots of heat. Not going to happen.

      Both going with AMD makes perfect sense as well, AMD is not competitive with Intel in high end CPUs, but wipes the floor with Intel in GPU performance, which is much more important than CPUs on consoles.

      I wouldn't be surprised if they opt for APU only solution (without discrete graphic card, but, maybe, with a bit more beefy gpu part, so "custom APU") since they are already pretty good.

      Because its takes the whole joy out of owning something unique , Something special , If everything was the same in this world it would be a boring place , And I've already got a PC So I want something out if the ordinary , Not just another run of the mill higher spec console that's exactly the same as another with a different dash and badge , That's not what I wish to spend my money on , I'd rather buy a top end GPU, They can both lose , Fuck em I won't spend a penny if they do that.

      You act like its impossible to create a console with high level PC performance because of heat. If u know anything about the PC world it's rather easy to deal with heat. Consoles just need to be abit bigger in size and then they can handle similar design specs.
