Sony was developing a lot of videogames on PC so the pubilsher thought to add an AMD x64 CPU and a Radeon HD 7850, 2 GB of GDDR5 to their PS4. Sony wants you to be able to use Bluray on Playstation 4, otherwise Bluray would be replaced soon. I don’t know of any Bluray competitors or successors.
Microsoft is working on a 6 core ARM CPU and Radeon HD 7850 for Xbox Loop.
This is great news, because I dislike paying $60 for DirectX 9.0c. PS3 and Xbox 360 should sell new games at $40 considering their DirectX 9.0c quality. 3DS has it at this price point.
I happen to look at System16.com and noticed Namco, Capcom Taito, and SEGA all went to Intel X64 motherboards! The MAME cabinet is replacing all arcade cabinets out there. Advance MAME Linux DVD.
