It'll certainly be removed in later iterations...

No mention on wireless, and I find the HDD way too small.

I'm not putting stock in those specs.

4x USB 3.0 makes sense; I know I'm not the only one who gets dissatisfied with only two ports on the Slim and the SuperSlim. However, the HDD is smaller than on the SuperSlim (no way), and dual ethernet serves zero purpose except to add cost.

Plus that leak is kinda old I think... I highly doubt that's current anymore even if it was correct at the time.

Any "leaked" specs are almost certainly bogus, so I'd advise not bothering.

I think the leaked specs for the CPU are correct. I've seen that leak from a ton of different sources. I also really hope that the RAM leak is true. The current gen consoles woulda been so much better if they had double the RAM (the PS3 has 256MB VRAM+256MB RAM (Can be shared), the xbox has 512MB VRAM+256MB RAM (cannot be shared) ). Large open environments need 2 things: lots of VRAM, and lots of RAM, so if the new consoles have 2 GB VRAM and 8 GB sys RAM we should see the ability to do open world environments a lot better.

These specs aren't this old, not quite four weeks. According to the article these are the specs of a dev kit, which could explain the ethernet ports to provide direct debugging access.

Xbox has 522MB of total RAM. 512MB GDDR3 @ 700 MHz shared between the Xenon and Xenos, plus 10MB of eDRAM on the Xenos. PS3's got 256MB of XDR @ 3.2 GHz for the Cell and 256MB of GDDR3 @ 700 MHz for the RSX, unshared.

But yeah, I am still surprised that both Sony and Microsoft thought the ridiculously small amount of RAM in both consoles was sufficient beyond the first year or two of life. They'd have both been much better off with 1GB total. Especially Sony since the GameOS was a porker at 120MB of RAM for its first few years of life till Sony overhauled it and cut it down to 50MB.

Yep, you're right, I was thinking of another set of leaked specs that was similar (but had it using the A8 and more RAM).

Oh no worries mate, I'm sure most of these specs are spot on. Next Wednesday hopefully all will be revealed.

I've already stated elsewhere that I'm highly unlikely to be buying PS4, nor the Xbox 720.  However, whilst my interest is academic, I just hope Sony don't shoot themselves in the foot with this one, for eg. by attempting excessive profiteering via forcing gamers into too much expensive download-only gaming.  I think it's much too soon to abandon disc-based versions.  Also, backwards-compatibility with at least PS3 games seems almost a prerequisite if Sony are to make a great success of this.  

While any new console release still excites me, at the end of the day it's the games that matter most.

Well, if the rumours are true (and considering Sony's acquisitions in the past they at least seem very plausible), the PS4 won't be really backward compatible, but offer the possibility to stream PS3 games à la OnLive. I'm not sure if I like this idea...

Little will surprise me, but if they do that, I just hope they'll accept serial numbers from those who've already bought disc-based PS3 games & offer them either free, or at least heavily discounted, streamed versions.  If not, I see the PS brand gradually going the way of Nintendo & losing more market share.  Not just to Xbox (whilst more of Nintendo's casual gaming market goes to Apple), but also to Valve's Steam Box, assuming Valve can offer that at an attractive price on launching.

I'm sure I don't. Streaming PS3 games = even if you have a great ping, you'll have higher input lag than the worst, slowest TV on the market, and you're going to be streaming video over your internet connection. Best you'll get is Netflix-quality, which is HD in pixel count alone.

Not even Steve Jobs' RDF could distort that enough to make it attractive to me.

Official Specs:

X86 CPU - 8 Core
"Enhanced PC GPU" - almost 2 Tflops
8 GB RAM
Large HDD
Second Chip to do background processing
You can play downloadable games instantly (don't need to wait for download to finish)

They said several times it's PC hardware in order to make it easy for devs. I really like how this is so similar to a PC hardware wise, it should mean that 3rd party games will be come to both PC and PS4 since they are almost identical in the hardware department.

more to come, watching the live stream now.
