Definitely sounding like PS and XB will have extremely similar hardware and specs next gen, which is good as it will put the focus on other features to one up each other. Less work for devs, too.

Scarlett + X Cloud + Game Pass = Stadia Killer...

Important Quote "It eats monsters for breakfast" odd thing to say at the end. I wonder if his referring to the competition.

MS themselves and have referred to the XBO-X as a "Monster" on more than one occasion. "It's a monster" became something of a slogan among a subset of fans. What they were referring to was the leap in power between the Scarlett and the XBO-X

Too early

How is 7 years too early? Gen 8 will be the 2nd longest console generation ever.

So, it looks like they will be very similar in power. Looks like Sony has next gen on lock with their exclusives and brand loyalty WW.

Even with the customising from each client these console will be closely related, since they are basically choosing from the same parts bin with pretty much the same budgetary constraints, we now have in the PS4 and Xbox one, two homogeneous products and that will continue next gen, with everything being so closed in, the real surprise would be Sony and MS not having good tabs on each others work. that doesn't mean there can't be surprises the amount of PS4 ram was a surprise but that was only because it was a last minute decision and only concerned the amount.
This remind's me of Cerny talking about Playstations move to X86 and how he went to Sony after having what he described as an epiphany my thoughts were so did someone at MS have the same epiphany or was it a case of at least one of them keeping tabs on your competition that eventually lead them both to amd's door , It has precedence MS went to intel when they got word of the cell.
