Analysts on PS4 specs vs. Xbox 720 predicted sales
Last month’s reveal event by Sony gave the gaming industry plenty to contemplate and impressed many. and as we wait to hear what Microsoft has planned, we thought it would be good idea to see what analysts are saying in relation to the PS4 specs and Xbox 720 predicted sales. Avalanche Studios CTO predicts PS4 specs to deliver most power, which we have seen detailed specs from the recent event.
According to Avalanche Studios CTO, Linus Blomberg, he feels this is the right time to have a new console cycle considering the competition with mobile gaming is becoming more prominent, as well as competing with PCs which have overtaken consoles drastically as far as performance is concerned.
The desperate need for new consoles is highlighted on Gaming Bolt, in which they discuss the rise in mobile gaming as well as how far PC performance has come on during the time the existing consoles have been around. Blomberg highlights great things for the PS4 and the business model which will allow this console to open up new opportunities.
He mentions how the PlayStation 4 will be a very powerful gaming system when it comes to hardware, along with talk about it being a social tool and integrated marketplace like the successful mobile platform. Sony will be able to continue making incremental improvements and this will be paramount for the lifecycle of the console.
With this in mind, another leading analyst Michael Pachter gives us the impression the next Xbox will come out on top in the battle of the next-gen consoles. Many gamers are reluctant to put too much trust in Pachter, although his comments do bring up some interesting debates.
Pachter from Wedbush Securities claims the Xbox 720 will be a superior console and this is down to strong social features and a TV tuner, questioning whether Sony’s Gaikai system will be enough to put the PS4 in a higher position.
His stance over the prediction of the new Xbox winning the next-generation console war can be seen on this Twitter page. Therefore, while we contemplate his thoughts, we can guarantee there are many who do not agree with him, so what do you think about his comments putting the Xbox 720 in front of the PS4?
