Next Xbox and PS4, Coming Soon?
Whether the next Xbox and PS4 will be coming soon or ten years from now, the upcoming consoles promise to be ten times much better than their predecessors.
Programming legend, John Carmack, told Eurogamer that the next Xbox and PlayStation 4 will be ten times more powerful than the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. He also added that Microsoft and Sony’s respective gaming consoles will hit the stores ‘in a couple of years’.
This week’s reports suggested that Microsoft will announce its next Xbox at E3 2012, and a 2013 release is in the works. Sony, on the other hand, will continue to push its ten-year life cycle prediction for the PlayStation 3. Regardless, John Carmack said that the next gaming consoles will pose a tough challenge for game creators: What will they do have an outstanding graphics?
“The better games get the harder you have to go to give a delta people care about. That’s going to be a challenge for the next-generation of consoles, to show what pack-in title is going to look so much more awesome than what you get on the current ones that people want to go spend $300 on a new console.
“They’ll be able to do it on the next generation, but it’s going to be much harder.”
