    Looks like Sony have just stolen a march on Microsoft from the announcement last night - no DRM, no need to keep your console connected to the internet, and no restrictions on 2nd-hand games sales.

    That and it's £80 cheaper...

    Xbox One

    CPU: 8-core 64-bit x86 Jaguar AMD CPU @ 1.6GHz
    RAM:8GB DDR3
    HDD: 500GB
    HDMI In/Out
    USB3
    Gigabit Ethernet
    GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7790 equivalent

    PS4:

    CPU: 8-core 64-bit x86 Jaguar AMD CPU (speed TBC),
    RAM: 8GB GDDR5
    HDD: TBC
    HDMI
    USB3
    Gigabit Ethernet
    GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7870
    The old Xbox 360 could manage about 300gigaflops (floating operations per second), with the PS3 managing 400gigaflops. All the figures I've seen online for the two new consoles has them rated about 2 teraflops (six times more powerful than the older consoles).








    The graphics units used by both are equivalent to cards currently available for the PC - the 7870 is more powerful than the 7790.

    Microsoft are trying to make their console more of a "home hub" for entertainment, films and music, but it looks like Sony are focusing more on the games side of things.
