While previously leaked specs for Sony's PS4 show an overall hardware advantage compared to Microsoft's Xbox 720, it seems that Sony may not be putting all efforts behind creating a more powerful system than that of their competitors. In an article that was posted today by CVG, a Sony insider says that the overall power output within the system is not the focus at the company.
“The war won't be won by producing the most powerful system, the person said. Sony is focusing attentions on fighting the Xbox business head-on with a well organised and timely console launch. No long waits, no executive hubris, no historic calamities,” said the Sony insider.
With Sony set to reveal the PS4 at the PlayStation event later this month, we may very well see major announcements from Sony that is not directly related to the hardware that is delivered with the PS4. Sony has expressed interest in bringing a more social aspect into their gaming products. This may the one of the focuses that is discussed once this system is initially announced.
