Most importantly i can do what i want with my HTPC and expand eternally with no file format limitations or harddisk size limitation
And perhaps you have been mistaken. The PS4 and Xbox One GPU is closer to a 7790 than a 7870 ... If it really was that powerful AMD would be shooting themselves in the foot
The problem is you are telling me what works for you should work for me. I dont want a HTPC. I want a gaming console that I can also use as a media server for streaming off my network. I have a gaming computer that has better specs than yours, so I already have invested in my PC gaming.
The first point is that PC gaming isnt better than console gaming when the game is console exclusive. The Last of Us comes out on Friday and my PC cant run it.
Second, Everything you have said about your HTPC is true about my network. I can expand it internally and have no format limitations. PS3 media server allows me to do everything I want without having to hook up my PC to my media room. My office is right next to my media room, so I can do that if I want.
PS4 is a 7790 custom GPU and I was looking at some old rumor articles and not the more recent ones.
Finally, $400 bucks for a PS4 is a bargain for everything it can do. It is the same reason I own xbox 360 and PS3 already.
