The lights are on
Sony is fleshing out the specs of the PlayStation 4 with more detailed information on the system's processor, GPU, and disc drive.
Sony revealed some general specs for the PlayStation 4 during its conference last night, but a new press release from the company sheds a little more light on the system. Here's the rundown, straight from Sony:
During the press conference, Sony also stressed that including 8GB of GDDR5 memory was the number-one request from developers; 8GB provides over 15 times the amount of memory the PS3 has.
It will be a while until we see what developers are capable of doing with the new hardware, but Sony's pledge to make a more developer-friendly console this time around is good news for progammers and gamers alike.

This sounds so cool...can't wait to get it!!!
Does this mean it will have a party chat option like the Xbox360?
At least there will be x64 compatibility, I would be mad if there wasn't.
im gonna wait and see what MS has to offer... but im properly gonna buy PS4 eventually.
From what I hear the memory is also unified. Should help for games like Skyrim where a split RAM might limit how much the game can use.
Sounds like it's really moving forward.
