I have suspisions the PS4 could be built around ARM architecture. It seems a logical choice for a low power cool running system which still has the grunt to perform. It would also make cross programming with the Vita easier, that being an ARM device.
Both will be smaller than ther current incarnations ans will most likely cost less at launch. I can see Microsoft going more down a PC architecture route again. Maybe utilizing intels new mobile platform alongside a sperate GPU. I suspect the next Xbox will be kinect ready out of the box.
Both machines will not be a quantum leap in tech stakes. More of a stop gap measure as they will be obselete compared to PC hardware as soon as they are released. Sadly companies just don't have money to throw at long term research and development any longer.edit on 6/5/2012 by Grifter81 because: (no reason given)
