Nic Healey can usually be found on a couch muttering about aspect ratios and 7.1 channel sound - which is helpful given that he's the home entertainment guy at CNET.

The next generation has arrived, with the PS4 out in the US and the Xbox One due to hit Australia later this week.

As always, the experience of a console involves much more than just the hardware in the box, but it's intriguing to see how that hardware has evolved for these new iterations of gaming devices.

We'll have full reviews of the hardware and user experience of both the PS4 and Xbox One after they launch locally.

Interesting, except that half of the information is completely wrong.

The XBox 360 has an optical drive, the PS3 has 1 PPC core and 7 SPUs (neither 7 total nor 3 total as listed), both the XBox One and PS4 feature customised AMD GPUs, the EDRAM/ESRAM of the Microsoft consoles is not listed and the HDDs in both the PS3 and PS4 are customer upgradable.

Please correct.
