Doesn't Windows limit 32-bit apps to accessing 2 GB of RAM? 8 GB of RAM seems a ridiculous amount when the PC copes just fine with that limit.

64-bit ups that limit to some ridiculously high number.

There are no overheads in a console either, so Windows hasn't stolen 2GB for itself, etc.

And it's usually much faster ram than the PC equivalent, which gives other gains.

Hasn't the 360 only got 128MB or something? PCs in 2005 had 4 times that.

Those glasses look like they are 3D and Ar if I understand those diagrams (I probably don't) - it lookss like there's an additional layer of image displayed on the glasses as well as what you'd see on your telly.

Arguably (probably not) that might mean you could have a 3D game even if you don't have a 3D telly, maybe? Telly does one image the glasses do the other? I know stereoscopic works by different images per eye, so not sure if I'm talking utter balls but that's what came to mind.... Bit fucked if you need to wear glasses normally though if that is the case.

Tbh, I'm pretty bored of waiting, can someone announce the next gen please? I saw that someone at Squeenix was bemoaning how long this gen has gone on for, so surely it's imminent if devs are openly moaning about it. I know Epic have been but surely that's just to push the latest Unreal engine more than anything else.

Remember when Sony got so full of themselves and they fumbled the ball. All they had to do was release the PS3 in an attractive package at an attractive price point with a bunch of 1st rate launch titles and they would have instantly gone straight to 1st place in the "console wars."

This is going to be a disaster, way too many captains steering the ship in different directions in rough financial seas.

We're going to get a console equivalent of the phantom menace. So many focus group orientated features to appeal to every marketing demographic group from the hardcore graphics whores to the weight watching yummy mummies.

There will be too much focus on pleasing everyone which will result in it lacking the focus to sell to those who actually buy new consoles in the 1st couple of years at premium prices. Multiple launch versions will simply confuse the market and repel those who are currently desperate for the next gen to begin.

Apart from the Fortaleza AR glasses thing, it's basically a super X360, does more of everything, the one box to rule them all and take control of the living room, which is pretty much what the sales pitch for anybody buying a current X360 and Kinect bundle is buying into anyway (if you are an American at least), and they did announce SmartGlass this year, which is one of the directions they mentioned in the leaked document, so it seems they are following the roadmap.

Like the first, the most interesting thing will be seeing all the PC hacks that people pull off.

Also if someone starts going on about 1:1 being possible, I'll scream.

1:1 will be possible though.

The problem with the Leap is that, much like the Razer Hydra, it's basically a desktop bound controller, so not exactly comfy couch-friendly (and we all know how important the couch is :))

The demo is highly impressive, but it isn't a console solution.

I just came in here to post that, and spotted my stupid double post from weeks ago and deleted it.

At least they bothered to check the hardware this time instead of slamming it all out of the door without doing any proper quality control :lol:
