What we are hearing is there isn't some new groundbreaking tech coming with these new consoles. It's based on PC tech. Where as in the past when the consoles were released they had unique technology that at least made them the leader for a period of time.

And that turned out to only be on paper, since when the 360 was finally released, none of the programmers knew how to use all its power, since none of them had ever prepared to start coding multiple threads. So for at least a year or more, all 360 games only used one of its three cores.

And then the exact same thing happened with the PS3, since the Cell was such a weird piece of architecture.

So in reality, good PCs at the time still handily beat both consoles. And for this upcoming cycle, it's absolutely no contest. The PC I'm running right now, which I built a year ago, would destroy the 720 and PS4 combined, and it's not even considered high-end anymore.
