I am just saying the new consoles are going to start out handicapped in terms of where the marketis going: 4k 120 FPS/Raytracing.
Doesnít matter if they wait a year or 5. A low end/next gen card is always going to push the price of the consoles too high. Unless itís a few years old in which case youíre back to where we are now and with every previous generation of consoles: still behind the PC in comparison to capabilities.

Even with the handicap though, consoles sell in the millions because they are relatively cheap (compared to PCs) and the function out of the box with next to zero issues (have fun with the bloatware on a PC). Just like with Apple products, people pay a reasonable premium for ease of use where everything just works all the time, every time without much (if any) effort. You plug up a console, set your resolution and internet connection and then start playing your games. PCs you have a lot more cabling to connect, have to spend time messing with video settings to get the optimal frame rates that work with your specific graphics card and monitor.

I think that new controller looks great. If thats what the console looks like...way better than the first renderings we saw with that V-Notch design.

I read Rachet and Clank could be one of the launch games around the holidays this year for this system.

The business model isn't that complicated. The real money is in software sales. The more units they have out there, the more resources developers put into developing titles for the hardware and the more money everyone makes off of software. They could put the top of the line hardware in there and sell the system at a loss to get it out there and recoup in software. However, that strategy also has a bottleneck on it because not many people have televisions that can support the resolution and refresh rates and people tend to keep tvs much longer. Thus we get mediocre hardware for a medium price.
