PlayStation 4 represents possibly the single biggest leap seen in a console generation

Forums - Sony Discussion - PlayStation 4 represents possibly the single biggest leap seen in a console generation

Every PS announcement is the biggest leap. Fact.



Ex Graphics Whore.

Around the Network

For a console jump in the 3D world it does look impressive.

I still think 2D to 3D was a bigger jump though.



 

 

Bullshit.

But what the developer is talking... about memory... I think it is the biggest ever... GPU performance I'm not sure.

Anybody remember a increase in 16x the size of memory from the previous gen???

Wasn't the the jump from Nes/Gensis to SNES like... 60X or something crazy like that.?


NES had 2KB of RAM, SNES had 128KB of RAM, so that's +126 KB jump.

PS3 had 512MB of RAM, PS4 has 8GB of RAM, so that's +7488 MB jump...its not even comparable lol

It seems like your having a reading comprehnion problem.

Also... multiplications on a smaller level actually generally lead to more of a performance boost per amount added so...

i beleive the wii to wii U is actually the biggest leap.

I'll agree it's a big leap...    gotta love gravity.

just more PR speak. This seems to be happening alot lately,every since the ps4 was announced.

And seems like you have a spelling problem. See, cheapshots won't get us anywhere 

This amount of RAM has never been added to a successor console before and that's a FACT

NES to SNES seems like a big jump only because of how laughable NES hardware was, even for it's own time. It's not much of an achievement to make a big jump from that 



OMG- this will be bigger than the leap from 2d pixel based games, to fully 3d polygon gaming. Imagine all the new gameplay possibilities from the use of better textures, lighting, etc. It will be like the jump from pong, to modern gear of warfare 3.

Yeah exactly the case. NES hardware was extremely laughable even back then. Nintendo has always delivered a sub-par gaming experience, whereas Sony has redefined gaming time and time again. Also- ram and tech specs are DIRECTLY connected to the quality of the games and gameplay. Better specs = better games. That's just a simple fact. Sony will wow us again, just like cell technology crushed the 360's shitty hardware.

Depends on how you define sub-par gaming experience. If you're talking about specs, both N64 and GameCube were more powerful than their Playstation competitors. If you're talking about other stuff, i wouldn't really call NES a sub-par gaming experience, it was by far the only console worth owning in it's era. And i disagree with you on Better specs = better games. PS2 had the worst specs last gen, but few can deny it had by far the best library of games
