EA's chief technology officier today talked about how the next gen consoles will bring unprecendented gameplay when they release and how they are 8X-10X times more powerful than the PS3 and 360(it may be slightly more).

This is good to hear and is pretty much what I predicted.

If the WiiU is technically 2X stronger than the 360 and PS3 it will be anywere from 4X-5X more powerful.I know you're trolling anyway.

Yep that's about right. People, this does not mean we're getting 8-10x better graphics this gen though. Diminishing returns/Dev costs etc. etc.

What interests me the most about the horsepower under next-gen consoles is how better the exclusives will be, gameplay-wise, visual-wise and the depth.

PC is still laughing at them though. This GPU...

Doubtful considering the PS3 has teh Cell which is like 8-10 times more powerful than the 720. The QUAD could surpass it though.
