Ok here's the forum contest rules.

There's two contests. Each one is to guess the total North American sales for the Xbox One and PS4. The first contest runs until March 31st 2014. The second contest runs until March 31st 2015.

A reasonably formatted entry would be:

PS4 NA Sales by March 31st 2014: 1 million
Xbox NA Sales by March 31st 2014: 500,000
PS4 NA Sales by March 31st 2015: 5 million
Xbox NA Sales by March 31st 2015: 4 million

Deadline for entry is midnight Nov 15th (PS4's release).

Winner will be determined by total difference between their guess and the results. If any disagreement occurs between who wins an anonymous vote will be had. No price is right faggotry in the contest. If you're 10 units over and another guy is 20 units under you beat him.

The winner will receive a COLORED TITLE!

I'd like to get on record the people who think the next gen consoles will have less than 4gigs of ram.

Most of the rumors say the PS4 will have 4GB of unified GDDR5 and the next Xbox will have 8GB of DDR3.

They're also saying the PS4 will be the more powerful system.

More powerful or not it won't matter one bit because developers will develop for the lowest common denominator.

I hope for lots of ram, storage, mouse / kb support for everything, full real browser and less gimmicky motion bull shit.

I could see a system being severely hampered if its power was significantly less than its competitor. In this cycle, for example, if the PS3 was significantly less powerful than Xbox360 it's very possible that more games wouldn't be made for the ps3 or would be trimmed down.

Limiting to 4GB memory could definitely do it, but fortunately for memory size (As opposed to processing power) you can significantly reduce the memory budget by shrinking the textures size. It's by no means trivial to do it well, but it's how it's done already since the artists aren't natively working with fucking 128x128 textures.

Will be focusing solely on MS next generation because I'm really jaded with Nintendo and I'm not very confident in Sony. Bring on the Kinect 2.0 and IllumiRoom!

According to that Edge Online article linked above the PS4 will have 8GB.

It looks like Sony has learned some lessons from the PS3's failures, which is great. I'm actually looking forward to both consoles now (never bought a PS3). Nintendo is still in the penalty box until they can prove they can do more than throw out gimmicks and hasty rehashes.

probably won't happen but would be sick if ps4 was backwards compatible.

Because the PS3 architecture is fucked up and maybe Sony wont want to put a Cell processor into the PS4?

This will be the last generation of consoles.
