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

PlayStation and Saturn blew me away so hard in comparison to Genesis and Super NES that I cannot explain.

If the PlayStation 4 can reproduce that feeling, it will be awesome. I'm not sure it will feel like such a huge leap, although I'd obviously love it if it did, so I hope it does.

Yeap... Maybe SNES to PS1 showed a bigger leap (too long ago to remember) but definitely not PS2 to PS3.



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???



Maybe in terms of pixels, teraflops, gigahertz, RAM, memory, [insert more technical jargon], etc. But it doesn't look like it at all, at least not with my eyes. Most of the games shown looked like super-polished PS3 games, for the videos that actually showed gameplay. I guess that's one effect when graphics become so good that further advancements can't be noticed by the human eye. I believe the PS1 --> PS2 and PS2 --> PS3 were much more impressive.

Of course this is based on what was shown so far. I'll need to play it on an HDTV for my final judgement. And I will also have to wait for later games. Though I doubt I would have the ability to truly appreciate the entirety of the advancement.

PS2 to PS3 was a 16x jump (32mb to 512mb).

In fact 32MB system RAM, 4MB VRAM, 2MB Sound RAM, 2MB I/O RAM... so 40MB RAM.

~13x PS2 to PS3.

Didn't each PS console increase the memory 16x.  I saw someone post it, but don't know if it's true.

Ah, I overlooked the "other" ram. I'm pretty sure the PS1 had less than 1/16 of the PS2's memory, though, but I'd best double check that.



Great. Sony should aim for having the strongest console ever.
