Consoles have always and will pretty much always be limited to a maximum power consumption of 250-300w...

You can not get a 16 core CPU and a high end 7900 series GPU in under 300w, heck the GPU alone will pull close to that on its own.

This is how I think Microsoft and Sony will spread the power consumption out.

APU : 80-100w
GPU : 100-150w
All other parts : 30-40w

They simply can't afford to use more then that and bear in mind that the consoles have to be a fraction of the size of a PC case and thus can only remove a certain amount of heat due to small heat sinks.

Really cool story and speculation. Its almost comical. PCs have always been a step or 2 ahead of consoles performance wise, and that when they are first released, then the gap continues to widen every 6 months for the entire life of the console.

And the PS3 at release date in the US was $600. Which at the time wasn't a bad buy, and you couldn't build a PC for $600 that could run with it.

It will be an absolute mistake to make the new consoles online only, because average internet speeds, and in many areas of the US are still stuck with 768k DSL being the best internet available. Some areas are even worse, its dial up or satellite, and satellite is terrible and subject to being interrupted just because its a little cloudy outside, or raining. And I don't predict this changing for at least another decade. People who don't have fast internet, and live in areas where they can't get it just won't buy the system.

360 at release was 20gb for 399$ and arcade was 299$ here in the us.

My post wasn't directed to you, the sarcasm was clear. (If you were referring to me at all)

Either way, with a release date of 2013, the hardware will already be far behind what the PC's will be at. Consoles will NEVER be as powerful as PC's are, since PC's technology basically gets vamped every 6 - 12 months, rather than every 6 years.
The newer consoles may be a step in the right direction, but to put it into perspective the PC is essentially the Usain Bolt of the technology world. They just get quicker and quicker in short periods of time, while the consoles get buckled down and bring the technological advancements of the gaming industry to a near halt.

That's the ps3 I thought....
