British magazine PSM3 is boasting images of alleged next-gen tech, giving us a glimpse of what the PlayStation 4 may be capable of rendering. The images shown are a richly detailed jungle environment, and a realistic close shot of a ladybug.
These pictures were created using technology that's said to "closely resemble" the rumored specs of the PS4. Recent gossip suggests Sony will abandon the cell chip and work with AMD to create a powerful graphics processor, taking home consoles one step closer to becoming glorified PCs.
The images are impressive, and not too far ahead of what the PC can currently do, making them a bit more believable than Sony's notorious Killzone 2 trailer from years ago. Still, one must always take these graphical boasts with a grain of salt. Now is the time for wild speculation and overexcited estimations.
Check out the screens, by all means, but always remember to believe it only when you see it in the flesh.
