Still stand by my point though. We all know how much difference in terms of FPS a little change in resolution makes. I can see the next gen consoles falling behind PCs much quicker this time around.
The one thing I've seen mentioned before is the 3d "split" screen where one set of specs does left eye and the other set does right eye. Any mention of this?

2. No photos as yet, but I suspect dev kits are out there already.
3. I believe blu-ray theoretically can hold up to 200GB using a double layer/quad layer arrangement. Something HD DVD could never do.
I still think 4K is going to be stunning, but only on larger screens. You're not going to notice on 32"-40" which is probably the most common sizes sold.
I think the demand is there, simply because there are customers who want TV screens the size of their wall
Watched the presentation despite late night tiredness and a dodgy 240p stream and was quiet buoyed by it. Sony have made all the right noises for me. The specs are about right and the move to x86 (note - it's not a PC!) architecture was a good one. I'm liking the look of the controller. The game demos, especially Watch Dogs, had me wanting to part with cash. Announcing Gaikai integration as pleased me.
My only question remains - what are they going to do for PS+, especially the instant games collection? The right answer would have me buying day one.
That said, I'm still very interested to see what both Valve and Microsoft bring to the table. I think MS are going to be focusing around the Kennect 2 as the big feature for their next gen, which won't interest me. If Valve can deliver a good gamepad experience and some kind of subscription gaming model then they may yet win me over.
Interesting times for those of use who like large tv screens and gamepads over small screens, keyboards and mice!

Shouldn't be the case. People should already have one box doing it all, and able to choose what inputs they want. But marketing won't allow it because they're scared.
Daft thing is that box already exists. Just needs the right software and marketing with less diparity between the millions of configuration options.
I thought Sony had stated they wanted the cost to be under £300?
As for Sony's buying power - you go to AMD and request 70million custom APU's and see what price you come back with
Also try not to compare too closely with PC specs, it's not so cut and dry as you might first think.
The use of GDDR5 is interesting for system RAM as well as GFX RAM. Wonder if it'll buoy the PC industry to speed forward with RAM in general? I'm thinking unlikely.
They have used GDDR5 as system RAM so they could use X86 system architecture and still use the full amount, well thats the only reason I can see for using it anyway
Also....This big announcement...Why didn't we get to see the actual console?
