Xbox 360, PS3, 'barely more powerful than mobile phones'

Nvidia's Senior vice president of content and technology, Tony Tamasi, expects the next crop of mobile devices to outperform current generation consoles, claiming the Xbox 360 and PS3 can barely hold an edge over today's Tegra 4 powered devices.

"The PS3 and Xbox 360 are barely more powerful than mobile devices," he told Bit-tech. "The next click of mobile phones will outperform [them]."

Of course, there are a number of factors to consider before we get too excited/infuriated. The current crop of consoles are on the way out, with the 360 and PS3 now over five years old and due to be replaced by more powerful machines. One must also consider the fact that, while mobile devices can theoretically be more powerful, one doesn't know if manufacturers would care to make the investment. Just because something can be done, that doesn't mean it will be -- or even should be.

In any case, it's scary to see how fast this technology's been developing. I'm still blown away by the idea of a Game Boy, let alone the fact I've got what is, essentially, a slab of glass that magically plays Infinity Blade and incredible amounts of exotic pornography. Decadence, we know it.
