How do you make a PlayStation 4 better? You give it an extra core, of course. It wasn’t enough that PlayStation games are the best gaming experience on the market. Sony had to have some extra aces up its sleeves and the 7th activated core is one of them. Only game developers have access to this feature, for the time being, but expect your PlayStation experience to increase tenfold starting with next year.
GameSpot was the one who gave us the big news, but there is a little extra inside, too. In case you all forgot about it when the PlayStation 4 launched two years ago, this console has 8 cores in its AMD processor, so it is quite possible that in 2 or 3 years’ time, when Sony unleashes its eight core, games will pretty much look like real life events. Except aliens and zombies. Those aren’t real.
But why does Sony have an edge over the Xbox One which, by the way, also has an 8 core processor? Well, it looks like the PlayStation 4 has way better graphics chip. Actually, it is two times stronger than that of the Xbox and the additional RAM also pushed the market leader forward. Xbox only boasts with the same features on the outside. The inside, however, well, Sony had it all figured out from the beginning.
Xbox realized that their inferior equipment might come back and bite them in the future, so they started enabling cores and bandwidth since last year. The main problem is that they had to give up some really unique features such as the voice command in order to make that happen. Sony doesn’t need to worry about these issues and even if they started making changes one year later, this is way better than what Xbox had to offer.
Now imagine how the guys from Microsoft felt when they figured out that, even with all the sacrifices that they have made, the PlayStation was still running games better than they were. That was the final alert that something was amiss and this notion is still haunting them one year after, with PlayStation as the world leading console.
How do you make a PlayStation 4 better? You add a core with no sacrifices. How will the PlayStation be the best ever console in 3 years? With the 8th enabled core, so get ready to watch video game movies.
