Poll Suggests Majority Of Gamers Want PS4 Over New Xbox

Obviously, this is all a long ways off - thankfully - but one poll suggests that far more gamers would be interested in the new PlayStation rather than the new Xbox...twice as many more, in fact.

This from TechRadar's latest poll, which finds that most just want a pen that's also a flying car. ...see, that's what you get for putting a joke in as an option; it will always win just because that's how the Internet works. But in second place was the PS4, with nearly twice as many votes as the next Xbox machine; 35% of all the votes cast were for next-gen video game consoles, too. Of course, only 4% wanted the next Wii but then again, I think that's about the percentage of people who want a Wii now. Okay, as the sales numbers indicate, that isn't true but when it comes to actual gamers, it's absolutely true. Apple owned the fourth spot behind the new Xbox with the Apple Tablet and next iPhone but overall, it seems most of the avid industry fanatics are most interested in what Sony has in store for us in the next generation. We've heard some early details pertaining to the PS4, which some analysts believe might land in 2012, although Sony continues to emphasize their 10-year lifespan plan for the current PS3. Of course, you can always keep the PS3 going with the PS4 out; just look at the PS2...  It just doesn't die.

But anyway, this sort of proves that the PlayStation brand has forced its way back into the limelight, and this is good news for the PS3. The longer "PlayStation" stays in that limelight, the more popular the PS3 (and ensuing interest for the PS4) will become, obviously.

It's "hear, hear":

"Hear, hear" is an expression used as a short repeated form of "hear him, hear him". It represents a listener's agreement with the point being made by a speaker.

PS3 is just now entering the 'prime' of it's life. I think that this 'prime' will run for about three years, perhaps a little less, before it starts a gradual slide. But, by then PS4 should be about ready...

well lets just put it this way.
if my ps3 can give me uncharted 2 i wana see what my ps4 could give me.
i dont want any new systems coming out for at least another 3 years, and i doubt they will be out any earlier than that.
both sony and M$ have not squeezed as much cash out of them as they can.
and if they were considering releasing new systems why would they bother with the new motion controllers, and 3D compatible FW update?
if a PS4 was coming out soon, sony would of not announced either of those and held them off for a launch accessory for the PS4.
because if they released them for the ps3, people would say meh im not buying a PS4, a ps3 can also do those things.
when your releasing a new system you need to have as many things exclusive to that system as possible, to entice people to buy it.
if 99.99% of the things the PS4 can do, the PS3 can than why would you buy it?

I just hope that Sony takes the time to have some cool stuff to go with the ps4. The ps3 is a great machine, but it's really just starting to do most of the stuff we knew it could years ago.

And make it backward compatible, DAMMIT!! It can't be that hard to plan for it.

If you're talking 'bout popularity and sales, yes now it's when it's picking up. The ps3-only quality has been there since the beginning.

If I were a betting man, which I'm not, then I would bet on a two cell configuration using something closer to the PwerCell8xi that IBM used in thair blade servers. It has much enhanced floating point capabilities. The other 'option' is the use of the forthcoming Power7 design which may, or may not include a lot of the Cell technology. If they did this, they could incorporate a Toshiba built Spurs Engine which is more or less the SPEs from the Cell without the PowerPC core. That might give them enough to properly emulate the PS3. The GPU could be anything from Intel's upcoming GPGPU (not Larabee, but a refinement of that concept) to a GPU from one of the established GPU makers like nVidia. I'm not sure that they will care about the GPU as much though because I think that they will take a stab at making the PS4 capable of real-time ray tracing. That would be a major achievement, but it's definitely where PC graphics are headed in the long term. Ray Tracing takes a lot of compute power, and twin PowerCells or perhaps the Power7 may be bale to handle that.

@ Highlander. Is there a website that explains what all of that terminology means? Sounds interesting, but I wish I knew more.

Highlander
Saturday, December 19, 2009 @ 10:51:07 PM

GPGPU - General Purpose Graphical Processing Unit. This is a graphics processor that has been enhanced to make it more functional as a processor in general. The reason GPUs exist is because they perform the specialized tasks needed for graphics which would take too much space to implement on a standard CPU, but GPUs are generally useless for anything other than graphics.

PowerXcell 8xi - a mor recent version of the CPU in the PS3, made by IBM for their high performance systems. It has been enhanced to perform mathematics more quickly. There are three kinds of math done on a CPU, Integer, Single Precision floating point and Double Precision floating point. Floating point math is important in physics, audio and graphics work. The Cell in the PS3 is really good at Single precision FP work, but not so good at Double Precision. The PowerXCell processor is an improved Cell that's much, much better at Double Precision, and a bit better at Single Precision without sacrificing any other performance.

Ray Tracing - Graphics technique where the image is constructed by tracing the path of light from the light source in a scene as it bounces off and interacts with the surfaces in the scene. It uses a lot of physics and is very math intensive. But, it produces far better looking graphics. The effects in movies are all done using ray tracing.

SPE - Synergistic Processing Elements - the part of the Cell that handles the floating point math. There are 7 active SPEs on the PS3, they are each effectively a processor core.

Power7 - the most recent version of the PowerPC processor from IBM, it will be *very* powerful, and *very* quick. The Cell has an older version of the PowerPC as it's main processing core.

Larabee is Intel's first attempt at a lot of simple cores on one chip, they are using an older Pentium core design that has been simplified and modified for working in parallel with others. Larabee had up to 48 of these simpler cores on it. But Larabee is a prototype, and is not going into production, they will be doing a slightly more refined design.

</brain dump mode>

You can find much of this (and it's almost all correct information) at the Wikipedia.

If the PS4 is going to be 450 bucks or higher then I dont want the damn thing and neither will the rest of humanity, just like the PS3. I dont care if you come out with 100 A+ titles at the very beginning of the PS4 life cycle, if the price is too high then no one will buy it.

IMO the PS3 was a failure this life cycle, at least compared to the PS2. Price point is the ONLY REASON it is losing to the XBOX and Nintendo Wii and, IMO, the only reason that the WII has sold so much. Had the ps3 been 299 from the beginning it would be on top. Period. Instead of the gimmmick that is Wii.

You can yack all you want about how the PS3 cost 800 bucks to make and blah blah blah. It cost the PS3 this generation.

If they DO come out with a high priced PS4 hardly ANYONE WILL BUY IT and I believe it will be over for Sony.

@ Drithe,
As Rod Serling used to tell us....
Please don't attempt to adjust your system, there is nothing wrong with it.

Contary to your thinking, because although the PS3 was originally expensive, it was never a failure, it isn't a failure in our present day, nor will it ever be a failure in our future's future either.

Sony's in it to win it over the long haul!
And win it all, it will.

Just as history has already shown us from the last two console generations, in which BOTH the PS1 & the PS2 reined supreme over all other pretenders of the crown.

I see what you're saying Drithe and I nearly agree. I would have loved a PS3 when it first came out but the price was laughable. They were selling PS2s at $129 by the truck load at the time. Why they thought they had to go the $600 route for the PS3 is beyond me. It was a bad mistake that they quickly remedied. I actually believe that Sony's ten year plan started this year with the slim.

Saturday, December 19, 2009 @ 7:36:15 PM

The price point for the PS3 was set by the sheer cost of the hardware. If you want to judge the system on it's price, then it's a friggin' bargain because everyone who paid $600 was buying a system sole with a $300 discount off the factory cost. That factory cost of $900 or there about would ordinarily mean a retail cost over $1000, so at $600 the original PS3 60GB model represents one of the better bargains ever presented.

As for a $450 initial cost for a notional PS4 in two or three years, that would be 25% less than the initial cost of the PS3 after 5 years of inflation. Sounds like a pretty good deal to me actually.

You don't get something for nothing folks. You could have paid $400 for an Xbox360 Pro and have purchase at least one replacement already, how would that cost stack up against the original $600 PS3? Not to forget the included BluRay player which would represent an additional cost. Let's not re-do the whole cost/value for money argument shall we, it was a dumb argument three years ago, and even more pointless now.

Vut we aren't talking about people like us here who looked inot what you got for your money and were mostly happy with our launch PS3s, are we?

We're talking about Joe Blow and his missus who, even now, aren't buying the cheaper Slim in Wii like numbers and if they see a higher price point they just DON'T look into what it represents or care how muchj it cost to make-they'd say why bother when the other consoles are so much less money wouldn't they?

I fear that Sony may well have failed to learn anything from the way the PS3 prise was seen by the masses too-they just released some details about their survey about the costs for PSN Premium. And those osts look EXORBITANT even next to Live and approach close to the $100 per year mark!! When they cannot make the actual online gaming part of it I fear they're totally out of touch and wonder just where they do their market research. Sweden or Norway where a beer costs a tenner?

No, Sony gear is way overpriced in many cases(look at the disaster of the Go!)from Bravias(which aren't the best TVs around by a long, long way. In fact my Bravia has been easily the worst and most expendive HDTV I've owned-and I jhave ive in all)to PSP to Vaios and though the PS3 is a different case given it's production costs I worry that Sony just don't know anymore what people are prepared to pay for things-and those prices aren't dependent on anything but that arbitrary number in the heads of Mr and Mrs average. Sony just don't seem that in touch with what the average consumer believes is a fair enough price for things.

I'd love a PS4 - as long as it isn't $1,000 or something. I guess I really don't understand what they would improve in the next generation. More processing power? But the current gen. has developers stretched to the limit just to take full advantage of what can be done now. 3D? I think that's a gimmick and people aren't going to rush out to replace their TV's, or sit around wearing glasses all night every night. Digital downloads and the gigantic hard drives needed to go with it? Nah. Are they just going to kiss off all their customers who live in countries with slow internet service?

Anyhow, it'll be interesting.

Programmers can always use more processing power.

The models don't need to be more complex, but the textures and lighting could be more consistently good, which more power would allow. And I don't think those upgrades would result in much more work (unlike modeling and animation).

Wouldn't you like to see Uncharted 4 run in 1080p with 4x AA at a smooth 120 FPS?

Eye-gasm.

I was just thinking that the 360 should really be called the Xbox 270, since the three red lights on the RRoD only fill 270 degrees of the circle.

The next Xbox will be the real Xbox 360, why?

Because the current Xbox is only Xbox 180.

don't mean to be a downer, i have a ps3 and an xbox and LOVE them both to death, but i think the reason the ps4 is more anticipated, is because people are still kinda dissatisfied with the ps3. i mean, yeah they're movin more units now than the xbox 360, but how many people have 360's already. just about everybody.

there's a bit over 30 million 360s sold globally and the US population is over 300 million. So perhaps 10% of the US population could conceivably have a 360 if they were all sold in the US. Is that everybody?

The PS2 sold more than 140 million units which is nearly 5 times as many than the 360, so does everybody have 4 or 5 PS2s? I mean really, everybody has a 360? Everybody? Really?

I can attest to that. We sold ours due to lack of playing it. Ever.

Yeah I just got a slim 2-3 months ago to replace my previous 80 gig PS3. If the PS3 comes out any time soon, I want my slim to be replaced for a PS4. Given that the PS4 is backwards compatible. It's only fair. Lol

Did anyone do a poll like this back when the PS3 popularity was a lot lower? It would have been interesting to see how many people would have liked to have a PS3 over a 360, but didn't have the money for the higher price point.

Ch1nook,
I was one of those who really wanted a launch 60 gigger, but due to most of my money being tied up elsewhere for the last couple years, I couldn't afford to get it till earlier this year.

And I actully wound up paying $605 for my used 60gb after taxes & 2 extra 1 year warranties.
And I don't regret itone (except for my long wait to get one, that is).

Technically, I think they could turn the PS3 into a PS4 by jut giving a firmware update, lol. But who wants that? xD That's no fun, lol.

Definitely agree on the long timescale. Everyone is talking like there will be yet another new generation of consoles next year, or the year after that. I'm still looking past 2012 before we see a PS4/Xbox720. If there were no other reason, the economic one would still make sense, it will take years to recuperate the investments made for this generation.
