"Double the GPU power"

I mean, I have a hard time believing it. I guess since the PS4 is x86 it might be easier to do something like that but eh... I don't know...

To be honest though, I don't really care about this from a consumer perspective *as long as it doesn't get exclusive games*. I'm more concerned from an investor perspective, in case this damages Sony's profitability, which again impacts my shares :-3

x86 is the CPU architecture. Not the GPU. The GPU driver stack is completely independant from the CPU. It could as well be a POWER CPU and it would be as easy to upgrade.

I obviously have no clue about this, but I figured PC are x86 and upgrading them works fine with games, and these consoles are x86 so it might work well with them as well :-3



Can't wait for E3, Xbox 1.5 // PS4K // NX. Some of these rumors have got to be true, meltdowns everywhere.

What can Sony really do? There is a new version coming, likely slim, announcing that now is not a good decision business wise. Either way it sends a message to hold off your purchase, cheaper one or better one coming.

Maybe they have a sense of humor and announce something crazy tomorrow :) Might as well go with it now.

So you still don't think that there will be a new revision of a PS4 will arrive with more horsepower?

I Rather Belive that Sony isn't dumb Enought, or that this is a  April 1Th's Joke, than believe in that Rumor, if is true, so this is the end of the Console Market.

This rumor is totally unbelievable. There is no good that can come from it. All this would do is annoy their 40 million or so customers. The most bogus part of that rumour is that they would upgrade the CPU, when most games are GPU limited (so why would they waste time / money on something that would provide little value?).

What is most likely coming this year is a PS4 slim, which will support HDMI 2.0 and 4K TVs. This would let them support their own 4K streaming service, as well as 4K Netflix. Games will not be affected.

If Sony waits until next year, then it is quite possible that they would include a 4K Bluray player, but I think that is a feature reserved for the PS5, which is due in 2018 / 2019.

 What good that come from this bs rumor, no good for sony but for the competition it's great, this rumor hurts sonys ps4 sales and psvr sales as people are now scared to pull the trigger, who could possibly be behind such underhanded move? Lol

 

I'd love to see NYT and Forbes stock portfolio when they spread bull like this it should be required to know how vested they are in these companies. Literally Forbes used the other two rumors article and tried to substantiate their article saying it must be true because others published it, journalism has become an utter joke.

 A good 80% of the responses to this thread are troll responses.  Anyone who thinks consoles should be on a 3 year refresh cycle doesn't understand the console business.

 All these bs posts that the ps4 vr can't keep up and needs more power to compete with occulus, have any of you actually tried the psvr? Firstly it doesn't need to complete with occulus, second the psvr works quite fine with the current ps4.

 All these crying posts about how this generation of console has underwhelmed, guys wipe the sleep from your eyes, go back a generation and tell me this gen isn't better.

 Mark my words, ps4k will have no improvement to gaming besides 4k video media output, 4k bluray support...

This!

Minimum requirements for PSVR are less than half that of OR (1920x1080x60 vs 2560x1200x90) plus John Carmack stated consoles can get get twice the efficiency out of the hardware. You also need a lot less fidelity in VR games, they will be intense enough already and since the same resolution is spread over a much wider fov lod settings and draw distance can be much lower. So I'm really not worried about PSVR not being able to deliver.

It's funny though, at end of last gen the graphics were good enough and we didn't really need new consoles. Today Uncharted 4 is apparently already outdated and it's time for an upgrade. Where does all this insecurity come from.

I ain't with it. We just spend $400 on the PS4 2.5 years ago. As a gamer with a life, i just can't keep blowing $400-$500 on a video game console every 3 years.
Hope its fake.

You would throw away your PS4 if you bought a PS4K?

SLI? Now I call Bullshit because how would this be connected in a ps4? 

Perhaps he is Australian so that for him, it's already April's fools day.

Yeah, lots of Gaffers are saying the same.
