Has Sony or Microsoft said how different sized hard drives will effect the price?

They've both only announced 1 SKU with 500GB hard drives. It wouldn't surprise me if Sony roll out with a more expensive version with a larger hard drive. I dunno if Microsoft are going to on launch though which is annoying.

At this point, it barely matters.

It will take quite some time for developers to be able to utilize the power of this hardware in a noticeable way.

And since production costs are already too high, it's doubtful, regardless of how good the hardware gets, that we'll see graphics significantly better than, say, Metal Gear Solid 5.

since the main area of future improvement is in rendering (especially lighting) rather than fidelity of assets, i'm not sure that's a safe prediction.

there's no conclusive answer. they get there in slightly different ways, but it basically evens out.

I don't have any links, but I remember the ps3 being a more powerful machine because of the cell processor, but it made it harder to develop for and caused the games to turn out worse in the early days. I think GTA IV had a lot of hub-bub about it.

Now ps4 is using a normal processor and is trying to be developer friendly.

Sony confirmed that the PS4's hard drive can be upgraded like the PS3 was.

The reason it's $100 more then the PS4 is because of that Kinect crap. And guess what, no headset so all voice will come through the Kinect. So enjoy dogs barking, parents yelling, toilets flushing, and everything else.

i can respect that, but i'm curious. what's the reasoning? exclusives seem like they're going to be few and far between this time around. i've been kinda feeling like i'll end up owning both eventually as well but so far almost everything i want is multiplatform.
