Of course. Better question is when?

True. I got excited after that Google Duplex thing. Well scared and excited at the same time.

First choice, the bigger library ofc as long as it's subjectively serviceable.

Mobile AAA games?

That´s almost like asking if Panama can win the world cup.

Beside the power and space limit, who would such a game target?

dolphins and whales maybe?

No, the Chinese dominate the mobile gaming industry with Chinese led games.

That could sound even more tempting to some investors.

Make the online free and we probably have a deal.

Well, every 180 days gives could give you $ 60 Credit and 1 Year Sub that's worth another $ 50-60. It's probably better in a way. Total of $ 110-120 every 6 months with payout every 1 month. You get your "free" online through that 1 year sub but it's not technically free I guess.

It shouldn't or at least Sony/MS should design it, whether a new consoles or current ones, that it doesn't really interfere with most traditional functions like updates during low power modes.

Help sony/ms to do what?

And you are already sharing the rest mode with data sent to MS/Sony,

Does current rest/low power modes send compute power, say worth about 10-20% GPU and CPU usage or is that more like usage statistics which I'm only guessing as worth a few notepads? Is it even possible to tell? I'm guessing only a network guru would be able to confirm; those that can sniff what kind of data are passing through their routers/modems.

Not rhetorical questions btw.

Most data sent during rest mode to Sony and MS is probably data on usage etc... But if you have a router, look up your log and you can see the traffic sent to especially MS during rest mode, it´s pretty crazy.

At least it´s not as bad as Alexa ´s, Amazon and Google are getting a shit ton of info from the conversations in your home.

Thanks. That's not really what I'm talking about. More on raw compute power than sharing statistics. I think the guy above is closer like that Folding@Home thing from before but that compute is going to just be 30-40 watts. I'm guessing usage statistics would cost below 1 watt.

Wishful thinking but I wish we get paid with actual money/credit with our personal data and not just say "You are getting paid in a way, through our improved services that you will still pay on top off..".

MS as in Windows or XB?

Nah, i don't see it happening. If Sony made a mobile game, your battery would be dead before the cutscenes finished playing.

lol

@Pedro said:

Isn't MS already making games for mobile?

I'll try looking it up.

As for Sony, I can vaguely remember they actually have a PS Mobile department. I'm not sure if they're still alive and not just vestigial.

I have no idea WTF you are talking about LOL

Is this like folding@home except we get paid for it this time?

Yes, kinda. Yes, we will be paid.

No clue what you're shilling, but i'm not giving up updates in rest mode.

It shouldn't or at least Sony/MS should design it, whether a new consoles or current ones, that it doesn't really interfere with most traditional functions like updates during low power modes.

@scatteh316: Increasing IPC will increase IPS, so...

IPC is a pointless metric and is often use by fanboys who don't really understand CPU's.

Simply saying....IPC.....IPC...IPC.... is stupid without knowing clock speeds and core count.

If Sony chose to go with a CPU with 10 cores, moderately clocked with an average IPC it would and could still deliverer better IPS then a 6-8 core with better IPC and clock speed.

And increasing IPC requires the most amount of work as it require changing the inner workings of the CPU which for cost reason won't be worth while......so the other way to increase IPS which is to increase core count and clock speed is a much easier, cheaper and viable option.

As I said when I corrected you, they don't need to focus on IPC, they need to focus on IPS and what is the best IPC/Core/Clock speed ratio for a price/power/thermal point of view.

What's IPS? I thought it was a joke about monitors.

So basically what you're saying is that IPC is irrelevant in comparison to whatever they can produce, even if low IPC, at a superior cost to performance ratio in the end? I guess that makes sense.

Didn't notice this. Interesting. Yeah I wish they had more output specially now they have better tools and hardware.

Maybe they can ramp up next gen due to the likelihood of very similar hardware and more grunt.
