Sony and Microsoft launched their systems with plenty of storage and support for external hard drives.
Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter echoed that sentiment.
“I see these systems as no different from the myriad new models last generation,” said Pachter.
“The last several had cheaper components and bigger HDDs; this generation has a faster CPU and GPU, but the development standards remain the same.” The latest rumors support van Dreunen’s and Pacther’s viewpoints.
The repeatedly rumored upgraded Play Station 4 and Xbox One systems are a new spin on an old trick.
Play Station 4 and Xbox One may both get major upgrades in the near future, according to recent reports from news sites Giant Bomb and The Verge.
