Next shocking revelation: Expensive sports cars perform better than (probably more) affordable family cars.

If you wanted to build a system (performance wise) that is very close to what the PS4 appears to be, it would probably cost you about the same as buying the console.
The PS4 will outperform the average PC for years to come while the average PC probably won't cost less.

It will be easy to come up with a PC that's close to its performance, but the same performance in all important matters (incl. power consumption) for an unsubsidized DIY-PC? Hardly possible.

Subjectively equaling the graphics? Easy.
Even the difference to the PS3 seems not that huge. Except hopefully 1080p always.
Theoretical numbers of the AMD APU are a lot better what Cell and the bottleneck nvidia GPU could do.
+ unheart of 8GB GDDR5 in a unified memory pool setup
I wonder what they will squeeze out of that.
Still Last of Us or Beyond looked awesome, while pretty much all PS4 demos failed to really impress me so far.
