I have a lot of love at 34 years old for game consoles and I remember even playin music games on some and I know some users of Reason are music makers and sound designers for Video Games so I find interesting to speak on the future of the two monsters but without going as fare as mac vs pc .
Microsoft is teasing the XBOX-1
and it's cool it got 8core AMD super fast, 8GO RAMS and maybe the same GPU sytem then PS4 !
some kids will have more power in that then there parents have with there PC LOL
but there is a dark side of this multimedia-center called the X-box 1 ,
The thing almost got to connect once a day to work , the games liscences are not transferable and you cannot lent your game to a friend for a few days but still it is the mega-center thing but around 500 dollars !
Sony Did there teasing on the PS4 juste after Microsoft and they say that they are 400 dollars and also that it not requiere a internet connection at all time , they also sayed that the games liscence will make possible to give or re-sale your games unlike xbox .
they also gived 8go of RAM and a proscessor amd but not as fast as the xbox one !
they both are amazing in my opinion , they also are more PC's then a normal game console like Wii mini wich is for me the only real game console left when others are multimedia centers with a multiple simulator side
anyway it is good to see that gaming will be having some freshness and new paint !
I bet a lot of peoples here a interested on that rather for work (music and developement) or because you still young or sneak on your kids consoles for a session when they in class
I would get the Sony if I wa going to by one now but only because I aint playing much so the imersion will be garrentie anyway ! what you guys think ?
