Existence of next-gen consoles revealed by survey

Everyone is waiting for the next generation of consoles to kick off, be it gamers, or developers. According to Gaming Bolt, Capcom has revealed the existence of a PlayStation 4 and an Xbox 720 in a survey, by asking if gamers would be interested in buying Sony’s and Microsoft’s next-gen systems.

Capcom is holding a survey as it is “gathering feedback from consumers on projects they would like to see from Capcom in the DIGITAL game space (not retail).” This strongly hints towards a focus on digital distribution in the next consoles.

One can only hope that it would look as cool as this

 PlayStation 4 Developer Kit

Earlier this month, it was revealed that the PlayStation 4 could see a release in 2014 in spring or autumn. The rumours are getting fiercer thanks to reports that developers already have their hands on the developer kits for the system. Sony has been using the term Orbis when referring to the machine. There has been no official record of the company calling it a PlayStation 4.

There are set to be four versions of the Orbis kit being shipped to developers. A previous version was essentially a graphics card. The newest version is a “modified PC”, and the third version will be the closest to the final specifications and will be sent to developers in January.

The Orbis, according to VG247, is based on the AMD A10 APU series. An APU – which stands for Accelerated Processing Unit – is a combination of a GPU and a CPU. The PlayStation 4 hardware is “based on A10 system and base platform”.

One of the biggest changes coming to the system is in the form of the interface. According to the source, the new interface will allow you to go anywhere while playing a game. This is not possible in the PlayStation 3 as some options require you to exit the game before using them. An example given was buying DLC from the PlayStation Store in the middle of playing a game and then seamlessly returning to play.

PlayStation 4 release date

We had earlier reported that the next-gen console from Microsoft, rumoured to be named either the Xbox 720 or the Durango, will be seeing a release in late 2013. The rumours are also gaining momentum because of the fact that developers have already gotten their hands on devkits for the ‘Durango’. This could also force Sony to unveil the next PlayStation, as again, developers have already gotten their hands on devkits. Looking at the game release schedule, and how there aren’t many big titles to be released after May, this could point towards the next-gen consoles from both Sony and Microsoft being closer than we think.

Earlier this year, the developer kit for the next Xbox – rumoured to be named the Xbox 720 – was leaked. A supposed Xbox 720 ‘Durango’ developer kit was posted on a developer forum and was offered to the public for $10,000. The developer kit resembles the traditional PC tower running a debug launcher, which caused many people to be cautious and sceptical about whether the prototype is authentic. EuroGamer’s Digital Foundry reached out to the source of the leak. After following up on the story with multiple developers who are working on next-gen projects, they came to the conclusion that the hardware was real.

The man who had leaked the shots, and uses the alias “DaE”, revealed to EuroGamer that Microsoft’s next-gen gaming console will feature an eight-core processor. The next generation console is also rumoured to include support for Blu-Ray, true 1080p and native 3D output; it is expected to be around six times more powerful than the current Xbox 360.

    i’ve always wondered how it’s entirely possible that a console just like a xbox 360 360 or perhaps a ps3 that are really small, and economical, in comparison to some gaming computer, can enjoy games so amazingly and perfectly, and you’ll need a commuter which costs 1000′s of dollars to experience that Identical game. and when they’re so effective, why dont pc producers make computer systems with similar components because these consoles, as well as sell them for additional $$$,? whether they can perform THAT well, why don’t you transform it into a desktop? it ought to have the ability to be achieved right? all im asking though, is exactly what causes it to be perform very well for such an inexpensive??? thanks
