Sony PlayStation 4 vs PlayStation 3
Do you already have PS3 and wanting to upgrade for PS4? Is it need to upgrade or just settle for PS3. What is the big difference of the two Sony Playstation? Will find out here. Here’s a comparison of a former PS3 to the new PS4.
And here’s the kicker, where the Sony PlayStation 4 vs PlayStation 3 with one controller and no games will set you back £349 inc VAT (if you can get one this year), you’ll have no problem picking up a PS3 for £160 or £200, depending on storage. I was in PC World yesterday and you couldn’t move for PS3 stock. Worth considering. See also: PS4 price in UK; how much will the PlayStation 4 cost?
PS3 vs PS4: games
Clearly the big money in terms of games development will be headed toward the PS4. At launch there is only a handful of exclusive titles, however. And remember that you cannot easily play PS3 games on your PS4. If you are a keen gamer, in it for the long term, the PS4 is the way to go. But if you just want to be able to choose from a wide range of games the PS3 could be a bargain. (See also: How to play PS3 games on PS4: Is it possible?)
PS3 vs PS4: specs
Although, of course, the PlayStation 4 is a vastly superior gaming rig. It has an 8-core AMD Jaguar CPU, clocked up to 2.75GHz. This is paied with an 800MHz AMD Radeon GPU and a healthy 8GB of GDDR5 RAM.
Compare this with the PS3: it has a single-core chip running at 3.2GHz. You get a 550MHz GPU and 256MB of DDR3 RAM. The clock speed may be high, but that single core processor and relatively tiny amount of RAM is the critical thing. The PS3 is a good gaming rig, but it can’t compete with its big brother.
