Cevat Yerli has made more comments in regards to comparing the PS4 and Xbox 720 against the PC platform. According to a report by PC Gamer on Feb. 20, the CEO of Crytek (the company responsible for the recently-released “Crysis 3”) revealed that it’s “impossible” for the next-generation systems to match the PC in terms of graphics. This is because the costs and wattages required to power the home consoles will only be a fraction of a top-line gaming PC. You can check out some concept designs from fans of the PS4 and Xbox 720 in the slideshow at the top of this article and the statement from Cevat Yerli below (courtesy of PC Gamer):
It’s impossible to package $2,000-$3,000 worth of hardware into a mainstream—let’s say $500—console. I’m not saying they are $500 consoles. They may launch a console at $2,000, but the consumer pricing is usually much lower than that. So, given consumer pricing, and given the cost of production of a gamer PC and the amount of wattage and power it needs, which is like a fridge, it’s impossible.
“Crysis 3” was released by Electronic Arts for the PC, as well as the current-generation PS3 and Xbox 360 consoles, in North America on Feb. 19. You can pre-order the first-person shooter in the following link: “Crysis 3”
Sony and Microsoft will most likely release the PS4 and Xbox 720 next-generation systems in the North American region sometime later in 2013.
