And my high end gaming computer performs better. Why do console manufactures have to be so behind?
I think ill pass unless some kick ass exclusive games get released for it.
So they are using 2 years old technology in the next-gen consoles!
You two are the usual run-of-the-mill fools... "my computer is faster! because what's wrote on the paper matters!"
Look at it this way: Sony decided to create it's own technology for the PS3, what ended up happening? Lots of issues. Developers struggled to learn the platform, which hindered enormously. In addition, it DROVE prices up for so long. Those are just the surface issues. Compared to what is in the current gen hardware, namely the Xbox 360, these specs are much further ahead of the curve. Should do well for six, to ten years.
That said, the miserably spec'd Xbox 360 is able to play Battlefield 3 perfectly fine, well people with much newer computers STRUGGLE. To name a title off the top of the head.
Consoles outsell PC's every day for gaming use. Consoles get more games within one year then the PC will in two years. See where I'm going with this?
Spec's are merely a point of interest, not means to compare to another platform to make decision.
So think before you spew out garbage. Enjoy upgrading your PC four time during the life-span of one console generation.
