PS4 is wisely-engineered says John Carmack

id co-founder believes that differences in console power won't be much of an issue in this generation

Game engine guru and co-founder of id Software John Carmack seems to be pretty impressed with Sony's next generation of home hardware.

Carmack described the new x86-based PS4 as a wise bit of engineering although NDAs still prohibit him from discussing it at any great depth.

He explained over Twitter, "I can't speak freely about PS4, but now that some specs have been made public, I can say that Sony made wise engineering choices."

He also seems to think that there won't be too much difference in power between the PS4 and Microsoft's new console in real terms. He told GI.biz, "Sony and Microsoft are going to fight over gigaflops and teraflops and GPUs and all this. In the end, it won't make that much difference."
