-even more overpriced hardware
-games will prolly start from 90 & upwards
-no improvement in games/gameplay, since graphics will make or kill a game (oh wait, thats the same as this gen)
-imminent hd failure
-will be hacked, even more will be stolen
-regions will be locked again

No ray tracing.(AMD's first RTU isn't expected to be availible for OEMs until 2014, Imagination Tech has a couple of years advantage on them.) Even if Xbox Bulldozer and the imaginary "PS4" had ray tracing, it would drive development cost up 40% more and would ballon the already annoying rising budget on IPs.
Lots and lots of useless,tired ass motion sensor gimmicks,overpriced hard drives.
Since the current AMD GPUs look slightly better than the previous gen,not much of an improvement in graphics at all.
Nothing cutting edge,nothing worth buying, nothing special just like that Atari 5200-like Wii U system.
Imagination Tech has got the upper hand on AMD with Caustic Graphics.

While i don't keep up the with bleeding edge stuff from what i've seen ATI/AMD is leading the way with graphic processing.
MrSega wrote:WildCard. Imagination Tech has a RTU only division called "Caustic Graphics, Inc" in which they have 2 OEM products both for high tech use. "CausticOne" and "CausticTwo" both are also being developed for high tech usage. Also NEC Power VR 6 Rogue is the first Power VR GPU chip in 10 years that will have both non PC and non mobile features. Thus, SEGA has an exclusive deal to use both a NEC Power VR 6 and a CausticOne RTU for thier new arcade board SEGADRIVE, with Super System/NEPTUNE being the only console capable of ray tracing.
If you still believe that AMD is ahead of Imagination Tech take a look at this: http://www.caustic.com
IM has been developing this techology for 5 years and is WELL ahead of AMD.

Nothing really, just more expensive, and slightly better graphics!
