4K support and a 2 terabyte hard drive. the ram is fine at 8gb but the gpu and cpu need a major upgrade. we might get away from disk drives too. not sure about bundling next generation morpheus with each system or not.

Bobertt883d ago

Consoles barely get 1080p at 60fps. Pc games at 4k and decent fps cost at least $1000 for the gpu. No way next gen will have 4k consoles cause even if price goes down by the time ps5 comes out it will probably be around $500 for the gpu and thats gonna raise the price too much for enough ppl to buy for a profit. You can put a 2tb in ps4 now its just not sold already in system cause it would raise the price. Depending on how long this generation last I doubt ps5 will be cloud based because there are a lot more issues with psn going down than before and Sony servers are slow for Ps4. If they had to upgrade the speed and reliability it would cost more money than I think they are willing to spend. Someone from Naughty Dog saud he doesn't expect 4k on consoles until ps6 genereation.

We also have to take into account that whenever something is mass produced, the cost to manufacture goes down. I think it might happen next gen.

Don't get too excited by a PC beating console unfortunately they are restricted by environmental laws that affect all consumer electricals.

HRoach616883d ago

A new gen is also at least 3 years away. Good chance by then components will be considerably cheaper.

@HRoach616
If a new PS or XB comes out in 3 years, there would be a major backlash. The systems were designed to have a lifespan of 7-10 years. A 5 year console wouldn't even be enough time for most AAA developers to really flex their muscles.

Morpheus will shine on PC not a console lol. If consoles cannot be sold for more than $400.00,then 4K resolution is out the window.

Enyxodin882d ago

The ram is fine? 8gb is gonna be todays 512mb when ps5 releases...the ps5 is going to need at least 128gb of ram if it wants to keep the same 16x ram increase as it has done from every successor!

2tb is too little

DragoonsScaleLegends883d ago

Not 60fps because they will just go for pushing the graphics instead of gameplay again.

cemelc883d ago

Cos thats sonys and not the developers fault

DragoonsScaleLegends883d ago

It's both of their faults. One wants all of the games to look best on their platform while the other wants their games to look better than other games. Of course the publishers themselves don't care and just want to minimize the cost of making the games even if it means cutting corners and releasing a buggy 30fps game.

nirwanda883d ago

If that was the case both consoles wouldn't have a strong indie scene since launch.

SilentNegotiator882d ago (Edited 882d ago )

After over a decade of 30fps being the dominant framerate on consoles, it's either time to get over it or stop pretending to care in comments typed up on your expensive PC rig.

Tzuno883d ago

If there will be a new gen of consoles i expect from them to run on Intel Cpu's. Amen.

sonic989883d ago

it shouldnt kill off the PS4 i believe that the PS5 will get a hardware and a digital release through PS now .
isnt it early to talk about a PS5 i have a PS4 now and there is absolutely no interesting games out on it right now .
there are some interesting games coming but certainly current line up is extremely poor let it deliver then ( the digital ) PS5 can have its time if it exists

blackblades883d ago

It'll be 3 ways, physical disc, stream, and download. Vita has both combine you can download and take it out via memory card.

sonic989882d ago (Edited 882d ago )

what i meant is buying the console isnt a requirement .
you can buy it and enjoy the games some one else can play it through PSnow on PS4 or other devices .
this Sony will make the video game market even more relevant i know the PS4 is selling great ( for a game console ) but not as great as mainstream technology devices if they want to it the same level of mass market then PSnow offers an incredible value and an incredible future plan .
