8GB of GDDR5 is a nice "upgrade". 16GB would've been nicer. Still a big improvement over 4GB.
0.o 16gb in a console? insert tui billboard.jpg here.
The xbox360 only has 512mb of ram, look what was accomplished with that limited amount! Consoles don't have the overhead a pc has, there is no need for 16gb of ram, heck unless your doing serious video editing or virtual machines there's no need for that much in your desktop pc. Im glad the TAB wasn't running bets on the specs because i was all in for 4gb.
Im excited for this new generation, maybe not for the consoles themselves but the fact that games will no longer be held back by the weak hardware these 7 year old machines have.
