I've read that Divigital will be standard and a new TV ratio will be needed of 17.3:9 to play on.

no, it's definitely based on GCN (graphics core next) which is 7000 series.

Link me to some recent reports? The 6000 rumour is newer than the 7000 rumour and makes sense as the 7ks are only launching now.

We said we were 99+% sure that the XBox Next/720 is a Power PC CPU plus an ATI GCN/HD7000/Southern Islands GPU, and with this last data point, we are now confident that it is 99.9+%

A 7000 series GPU is a good move. Very powerful architecture with plenty of lifetime. Not sure about the CPU though, it looks like they are going to make the devs lives hell again like they did with the PS3.
I just wonder how far in front PCs will be by 2014 but we've reached a point where we get cracking games on hardware that we wouldn't have thought possible a few years back. The biggest issue is still the forced dumbing down of games though and we can safely assume that will continue.

Also, doesn't the x86 architecture mean 32bit? Seems a bit dated by 2013/4, no?

i'd assume they just mean it'll use a cpu based on the x86 instruction set. It'd still be 64 bit. They'd be completely bonkers to make it 32bit

why would a x86 cpu make the devs lives hell? it would be far more welcome than cell wouldn't it? plus, with x86 they'll be able to have sony OS for games and then linux based backend for all the media shit which would be cool.

complete load of shit. the ps4 definitely won't use an amd 7670 GPU because the 7670 is a rebadged 6670. it's not based on GCN, only the 7700 and above series are.

With gaffa tape and without an ethernet cable connecting the two more like it. As long as by PC you mean P4.

Gentlemen, this is what old consoles are preventing in games. Yes, you would need a beasty up-to-date PC but it is possible. Think about the possibilities in new games if the engines were used at their maximum ability.

So the current rumour mill posits that Microsoft will offer a $99 USD 360 as long as you then commit to a two year $15 per month Xbox Live subscription plan, not unlike the mobile phone handset/contract market.

Naturally many have taken this to be a sign (or a market test) for a sales model for the next gen Xbox.

Seems like a shrewd move. Not only can they mask the cost of the hardware, but they could have flexibility with price reductions; Rather than doing permanent drops on the hardware RRP, they could do temporary promotions to push units when it suits them. Eg. Get your first three months subscription free.

I wouldn't be surprised if this particular rumour turns out to be bang on the money.

yeah, no thanks. Subscription plans are a rip off. let me have the product outright, and the determine what i pay for Live

That example above, after 2 years you've spent 99+180+180=$459 vs buying a $200 console outright plus two years of live at $50 = $300

Great money maker for MS, lousy for the consumer.
