Ok so we've had tonnes of leaks and rumours about the next genmconsoles but nothing confirmed. So imagine it turned out that both Sony and MS had managed to source virtually identical components for their new consoles? Same CPU, same RAM and same GPU. Imagine what impact it would have? Thoughts?

Identical multiplats, only exclusives and console specific features to tell them apart I guess.

Basically the same as this gen.

Though I expect PS4 to be more powerful as it will probably launch later, thus allowing them to beef up the system.

I think we know that there going to be pretty much the same I guess what's going to be the difference is the going to be the inter face and the othrler things we get with it i.e. apps but the truth is I am praying they are really different so I have a good reason to have both but does it really matter the fan boys will get there consoles what et the differences good or bad

Why would I have to imagine anything, when we have the same situation now?

PS3 and the 360 are neck to neck, in such cases, consoles differentiate themselves with game libraries...

Well Cows will still think they are a million miles ahead while lemmings will get better multiplats :P

You'd go for the one that has tons of exclusives, variety, free online, reliable hardare, and options as far as thrid party accessories go.

Or you could go full fanboy for no reason and get a 720.

Ive been saying they do this for years... that way no porting is needed. nobody gave a rats arse that the xbox and ps3 looked nearly identical. just simplify things for everyone i say. they can still have their exclusives and things that are different vut unifying the hardware would be ok with me.
