PlayStation 4 & GPGPU : Software Rendering will push PS4 far above Xbox One in Graphics.

At the moment PS4 & Xbox One games look a like for the most part besides better framerates & higher resolutions on the PS4, but PS4 still has a big advantage on it's side that's not being put to good use at the moment & that's the 8 ACE's vs the 2 ACE's of the Xbox One  GPU this will make a big difference when devs start to do more compute based rendering using the GPGPU  & it will make a big difference in the look of the games a bigger difference than what you see now with with PS4 extra power only being used for higher resolution & frame rates.

Nintendo Revealing New Hardware at E3?

From Neogaf

Word on the interwebs suggests that the Big N is gearing up for some sort of hardware reveal at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo.

"We've heard rumors that Nintendo might be showing hardware at E3," IGN editor Jose Otero said on the latest episode of Nintendo Voice Chat.

"They're absolutely going to show new hardware this year," the outlet's co-founder, Peer Schneider added. "No doubt in my mind that something... 'Cause I've heard from multiple people now. I've heard from someone who used to be at Nintendo, I've heard it from somebody on the third-party front."

Interesting, maybe a revised gamepad/cheaper model?


Videogamer too now

Nintendo will reveal new hardware at E3, a third-party publishing source has told VideoGamer.com.

Games compatible with the hardware will also be playable at the show, our source says, with the hardware believed to be linked to system specs leaked earlier in the year.

Those specs suggest that the hardware will be formed of two parts - a 'Fusion DS' and a 'Fusion Terminal' - and be a successor to the platform holder's struggling Wii U.

Our source's comments tally with those made by IGN earlier today who revealed that they had "heard rumours that Nintendo might be showing hardware at E3".


"They are absolutely going to show new hardware this year, there is no doubt in my mind..." said IGN's Peer Schneider. "I've heard it from multiple people now. I've heard it from someone who used to be at Nintendo, I've heard it from somebody on the third-party front."

The site then speculates that Nintendo could reveal a new peripheral or hardware revision rather than a new console.

Nintendo told VideoGamer.com that it does not comment on rumour or speculation when contacted about the story earlier today.

The platform holder is set to host its E3 digital event on Tuesday, June 10.
