Earlier in the week it was revealed that the Xbox 720 could be launched at the 2012 E3 expo, its main competitor, the PS4 won’t launch for a couple of years yet but sources have already started talking about the power of the two machines. So what’s the prediction, twice the power? Oh no, much grander than that as a new source tells Eurogamer that both consoles will offer ten times the power of the current models.
John Carmack is the man behind Doom and Quake, he also has a hand in the new title ‘Rage’. When speaking with Eurogamer, he said, “ The next-generation will be here soon, a couple of years. It’ll be another ten times as powerful as this generation. I’d be surprised if that doesn’t last over a decade before people wind up saying, well, we’ve really tapped out everything you could possibly do on there.”
So two bold predictions, first the next generation of consoles will offer 10 time the power and that they will both have a ten year life span. We feel that if true, gamers will be pretty pleased with those predictions.
Do you think the Xbox 720 and Playstation 4 will be 10 times more powerful? And will this be enough to make you part with your hard earned cash?
