Default Next playstation codename orbis slated for holiday 2013

As far as i can see the next gen consoles will only differ in name, because the hardware will be identical since Sony will Let AMD power the console, just like Xbox.
And guess what the new Xbox will feature a Blu-ray drive too.


The Next PlayStation is Called Orbis, Sources Say. Here are the Details.

Well there could be a large difference in performance depending on which GPU Sony go with, all that's known is it will use an AMD southern islands series card but that covers quite a range.

Regardless of which one it uses it will be more powerful that the new Xbox's 6670, just by how much we don't know yet.

6670 vs 7750 (low end southern island)
Radeon HD 6670 (OEM) vs Radeon HD 7750 – Performance Comparison Benchmarks @ Hardware Compare

6670 vs 7970 (high end southern island)
Radeon HD 6670 (OEM) vs Radeon HD 7970 – Performance Comparison Benchmarks @ Hardware Compare

What's interesting about this new Playstation console is the name Orbis. Orbis Vitae is latin for "circle of life" which sort of indicates they may be going for increased functionality with the PS Vita.

It's all just speculation at this point anyway, hopefully we'll see some solid specs at E3.

...either that or they're just having a cheap shot at "Circle of life" vs Xbox's "Red Ring of Death"

New ps4 developing kits are being shipped to the developers.
I expect the new Xbox being very similar like twins.
Here are the hardware details.

PS4: new kits shipping now, AMD A10 used as base | VG247
