i doubt it would out-power most CURRENT GAMING pcs, it certainly wont out perform the gaming pcs of the future, you must be mad to believe that

I suspect this is one of those misinformed execs that reads too much marketing material and probably doesn't even play games.

Considering about 97/98% of the worlds computers are not gaming rigs I guess this is a true statement, what little relevance it bares is another question.

Uh oh! PC elitists vs PS3 fanboys! It's like an unstoppable force vs an immovable object.

Can't be bothered to find a popcorn gif though.

I think its probably more along the lines of outpowering the specs that pc games use.

Of course people can build super pcs that would easily outdo any console but no game would ever need it so it wouldn't be useful at all.

As a gaming machine the PS4 should trounce PCs for a long while. 8 gigs in a console, dedicated to playing games, is absolutely huge. Look at the PS3's high points, achieved with 512mb non unified memory. Staggering results brought about by maximised optimisation, possible only when every machine is the same, such as consoles are. Add 8 gigs ddr3 to the equation, and i'm sure a few other tricks we've yet to hear of, and you have to admit things are getting a bit exciting. God of War 3/Uncharted 3 times 16? Yes please. I think people will be surprised in the first couple of years what will be achieved.

Best piece of news in that article was this..

It's heavily rumoured that Avalanche is also developing an open-world Mad Max game.


That's awesome!

PC's get new hardware every 6 months and my current PC is more powerful than the PS4 as are the PC's of many hardcore gamers.

If a GTX 680 which is the $500 card of today already runs circles around the PS4 GPU it won't be long until a 200 dollar GPU does the same.

But...

You need to really understand the quote. He says "most" and that will be true for a while. Not everyone will have a PC more powerful than a PS4 but a time will come where your average desktop sold at Best Buy will be more powerful.

He doesn't mean it would be more powerful in general. I don't think he's that stupid.
