I don't know if supporting Android apps is a good idea. Won't that kill any chance of having native apps?
Since it's a Mali 400, I would say 1.1 and 2.0.
As others have said, the Pi has an FPU and supports hard float. The issue with running Ubuntu on the Pi is that they only support ARMv7 while the Pi is ARMv6. I also don't think the Mali 400 MP2 in this thing is more powerful than the Videocore IV in the Pi.
It's not an Intel or AMD GPU, therefore it's not open.
Aside from Nintendo, AAA developers have never really been interested in handhelds to begin with. They usually just farm out their IP to some second rate developer, who makes a crappy handheld version, then use the lack of sales to justify their lack of support for the platform.
Games are still being released on PS2. The latest versions of FIFA and PES got PS2 versions this year, like all the previous years.
The only thing we don't know about the CPU is the clock speed at which it runs on the PS4 (it's 1.75 GHz on the Xbox One). Otherwise, it's just 2 quad core Jaguars duct taped together.
No, it has nothing to do with ARM. It's a different architecture: http://www.emdebian.org/~zumbi/mx53/u-boot-imx/doc/README.NDS32
My father gave me one, I put RaspBMC on it because it seemed like the easiest way to get Debian on it.
Huh? The official Raspberry Pi distribution is Debian compiled for ARMv6.
To be honest I'd be amazed if any new device shipping tens, maybe hundreds of thousands of units wasn't subject to some rate of failure. I hate Sony as much as the next guy but we basically know nothing at this point.
Make that million+ units.
You can replace the harddrive without opening the console, just like on the PS3.
If planetary discovery has taught us anything, it is that gas giants are likely more common than smaller rocky planets.
Not necessarily. They may just be (a lot) easier to spot.
They've already solved the memory bandwidth issue with the eDRAM in the Iris Pro Haswell parts.
It's a CPU core they're announcing, not an SoC.
And the PowerVR folks just bought their own CPU (MIPS).
