after Playstation 3,

looks like Sony and Nvidia are in it together for the long haul.
they've got a roadmap to Playstation 4.

"As the company revealed during E3, it's teamed up with leading PC
graphics card maker Nvidia to create a new graphics chip, called the
RSX, for the PS3."

"Our new GPU has been cocreated with Nvidia. I drew a road map for the
future together with [Nvidia president] Jen-Hsun, and the starting
point of that road map is the RSX. Many people seem to think that the
PS3's GPU is an upgraded model of GPUs for the PC, but it actually has
a completely different architecture," explained Kutaragi, whose
comments seemed to indicate that the two companies might work together
again on the inevitable PlayStation 4."

Yeah, but I bet nVidia and Microsoft had a road map after the Xbox, and now
look at where they are. A lot can happen in five years...

that is true -- alot can happen and change in five years.

on the other hand, Nvidia has nowhere else to go upward, as far as
consoles. they are now in bed with the number 1 player in the industry.
as for Sony, they won't have anyone else to turn to for graphics --
Nvidia is the best that there is now, other than ATI, and ATI is pretty
well locked in with Microsoft and Nintendo, for the forseeable future.
of course things can change, but as far as anyone can see at this time,
Sony and Nvidia will most likely colaborate again.

No they haven't (or at least, this article doesn't show that they
have). It's purely the opinion of the article writer (a staffer at
gamespot), that they'd work together on PS4. None of the quotes from
Sony or nVidia in the article even mention a PS4 and *no-one* even
mentions a roadmap. How can your interpretation of this article be
*so* botched?!

Ah ok, someone does mention "road map", though, hence my search didn't
find it... But even so, the point still remains, no-one mentions PS4
apart from the writer of the article - who is privvy to absolutely
nothing.

Ok I re-read the gamespot article - you are right, it was the writer of
the article that stated his opinion, not Sony or Nvidia saying that
Nvidia would help with the PS4 GPU. I will say this, though: the
decisions for the next-gen console (beyond PS3) would be being made
this year. I think that Nvidia would at least be the front-runner for
PS4's GPU, even if Sony would still be open to other possibilities. but
since right now there are not any companies challenging Nvidia for
graphics dominance other than ATI, I'd think that Nvidia is still a
good bet, even if they aren't a lock.

Anybody else tired of these "console spammers"? I think they need to get a
life.
