Although Intel processors would be more ideal, their price tag would make these consoles less affordable. Although theses leaks are sketchy it appears that the PS4 is coming out on top when it comes to specs over the new Xbox however the Xbox does have a higher amount of Hard Drive space.

Hopefully GDC will shed more light on the upcoming consoles.
