Same goes with next xbox.
Well, here's a bit more info:
More powerful than next Xbox, easy to work with, and some nifty controller tech and sharing ability. I'm sure next month or at E3 we'll know a lot more.

Building a PC is easy, but now is probably not the best time to do. The advantage of console hardware is that despite being less powerful technically, it is more specialized and doesn't have all the junk slowing it down that a PC does such as a big OS, etc. The term "coding to the metal" is often used and that's why you get games like The Last of Us, God of War, Beyond, Gears 3, Forza Horizon, etc... Games that would not be possible in equivalent or even more powerful (to a certain extent) PC hardware. The best time to invest in PC gaming is two or three years after the consoles launch. By then PC hardware will have a major advantage.

EDIT: Nope. I was wrong. Well, still, I wouldn't really worry too much.
Yeah when I got my PS3 in 2006, Bully came out at around the same time. I ended up playing Bully on my PS3 more than any other game for quite some time.

Lol not gonna happen. The reason PS3 had a stupid price was because of Blu-Ray. Now that it has become a more established technology, Blu-Ray won't be an issue and there's nothing else in the system that would drive up costs. The PS4 is using mostly off the shelf parts (like the Vita) which still results in great hardware, but it's also cheaper and easier for developers to work with. I'd be shocked if it's any higher than $399 like the 360 when it launched. It looks like Europe has to wait until 2014 though while US and Japan get it this year. So that sucks.

Also not gonna happen. The CG stuff was shown in 2005 because devs hadn't had dev hardware for very long at all and the system was over a year and a half from being launched. Devs (especially first party) have had PS4 kits for a long time, and since the goal is to release it this year, they will have a lot of content ready.
