Even though the full the full design, other than its new remote, has not yet been released, GameStop has released some detail showing that Sony’s Playstation 4 is already building up quite the hype. Let the Playstation 4 VS Xbox 720 war begin!
According to a survey done by the people over at GameStop, more than 600,000 of its “PowerUp Rewards” members have already signed up to its PlayStation 4 First to Know List, which shows the strong demand for the new console when it launches a little later this year.
Initial release dates for the PS4 were set for October this year, but word on the Interwebs information highway says that it might even launch a bit sooner… Which, I hope it does!
So, even though all we know is some of the PS4 specs and what the control will look like, what’s your opinion? Will you wait for the PS4 or will you be going the Xbox 720 route? I’m a big Sony fan, so I more than likely will consider getting a PS4 when the time and price is right. But, will it be able to play the PS3 game collection I have? Unfortunately it seems that it won’t be able to, but I guess we will have to wait and see.
Take a look at this spec comparison, leave me a comment… Will you get a Playstation 4, or are you going to be getting an Xbox 720? Keep in mind that the specs for the Xbox720 are still just rumoured specs, but they don’t seem too far off a more-than-likely end result.
Here’s a specs comparison…
