Price Vs. Power

With the report of PS4 dev kits now shipping to developers (rumored to have 8-16GB of RAM) which would you rather spend your hard earned money on next gen?

A. An affordable system with a small yet noticeable advance in hardware specs (like the Wii U is compared current gen)

or

B. A more expensive system, but with the power and technology to back it up (sorta like when the PS3 launched)


Here is a link to the PS4 dev kit details.

    cs price will go down over time but you wont be stuck with a limited system for a generation

    More power means more game play potential. I'd pay the money for that.

    I want my eyes to bleed when I see the new graphics... Plus, more power means we're closer to the PS9 commercial.

    Price is not an issue, I don't care as long as the console got dope games & is at the very least minimally amusing, graphic-wise. Don't have to be real life Avatar shit but you can't be 8-bit choppy either. Now if it comes with powerful hardware that's a bonus, as long as the games are dope I'm happy. No sense in having all that hardware if I ain't getting good games or games that can even utilize the power.

    fuck is that supposed to mean other than people are gullible fucks who'll buy anything with an apple logo on it

    IPhone5=IPhone4s 'cept thinner and an extra bar of useless apps

    IPhone4s=IPhone4 with Siri.

    Apple's brand sells doesnt mean that the product is any better from the normal consumer standpoint

    But after this disappointing 3rd gen, I think it goes downhill from here (just going by my taste in gaming, for some it will be great) so I wont be buying any 4th gen consoles.

    Might just stick with handhelds from now on, and even that is a reach. Not interested in the Vita, I might get the 3ds....maybe.

    Lol easy there lets not fire off the eithers so fast. The cell phone market and the video game market are 2 going in opposite directions though. Cell phones are the video games of the 90's. Big crowds across a broad demographic. Video games are on the downside. Lackluster sales numbers less people jumping to buy a new console right away. Biggest problem with the PS3 was that the ps2 was outselling it and people didn't wanna move right away even with shortages and shit.

    I will take a more powerful system than a slight upgrade from the last gen. Past the opinion leaders the wii u doesn't have much demand. Nintendo will shorten supply and shit to make it seem like people care but its not a big enough change to get casual gamers to buy the wii u. Why did the wii sell the best this current gen? Because they got casual gamers to buy on the drastic change to the way you play video games.

    No in this day and age its a slight improvement...i demoed a wii u at gamestop last week and its not that drastic. Gamecube to wii was a drastic improvement cause of the way you play with the wiimote. It's just adding HD games and a tablet controller isn't that much change. Shit the tablet could have been an add on just like the wii motion plus or wii fit board lol.

    Wii was just a gamecube with motion controls added. Virtually no upgrade in graphical power....

    fun system to mod though. At least the Wii U is "trying" to catch up with the times.

    Lollerskates. In terms of technical specs, it does maybe but until they actually put games people wanna play on that bitch Vita ain't shitting on actual shit.

    Anyway, Power really ain't never been an issue with me, as long as said console produces enjoyable gaming experiences...So called "hardcore" gamers slept on Wii, but it was a lot of genuinely good shit released under the radar for that joint if you were willing to dig for it, and got damnit the system was so fucking easy to yam out any dumbass who at least knew how to download and follow simple 3 or 4 step instructions can get all the best games for it for free.

    But who's gonna buy a Vita to play LittleBigPlanet when it's available on 2 other systems, one of which costs taking your girl out to a nice restaurant money compared to a Vita?

    But I can buy the game and have her cook while I'm playing. And LBP is better on the Vita.
