Next Level Of Gaming Experience
The world of gaming has changed drastically with the emergence of gaming consoles. Gaming has always been a mode of entertainment since ages and with the evolution of gaming consoles, the experience is just getting better day by day. Although tablets and smartphones are being used more and more for gaming, hardcore gamers still continue to demand their favourite titles on high-performance machines like PlayStation or Xbox. The next generation gaming consoles have introduced a new breed of games with feature like lifelike graphics, high definition display backed with latest technology in the hardware and real-life gaming experience.
Currently, Sony and Microsoft are said to be releasing PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the next generation gaming consoles, around November this year. They will also be facing competition from new console makers Ouya, GameStick and SteamBox, which will allow new game developers to enter the gaming world.
Microsoft is all set to release its new gaming consoles Xbox One by November and the company has described it as ‘the ultimate all-in-one entertainment system—one system for a new generation’. The Microsoft Xbox One comes loaded with an x64 8-core AMD Jaguar CPU, USB 3.0 ports, 500GB hard drive and 8GB DDR3 RAM, which will provide a high quality of gaming experience. It is also stuffed with the second generation of Kinect, which is said to be so fast and powerful that it detects motion in just 13 billionths of a second—the time it takes light to get from you and into the camera. Overall, through Xbox One, gamers will get a good gaming experience.

The new PS4 has been designed with an overarching theme of ‘frictionless and seamless gaming experience’. The new PS4 is loaded with 8-core 64-bit x86 Jaguar CPU built by AMD, with a Radeon GPU comprised of 18 “compute units” capable of cranking out 1.84 TFLOPS to process graphics and more. Sony has also introduced PlayStation 4 Eye, a newly-developed camera system that utilises two high-sensitivity cameras equipped with wide-angle lenses and 85-degree diagonal angle views. This will give a tough competition to Micro-soft’s Kinect.
