    Should have 1GB of GDDR5 and maybe another 512MB of system RAM. Would be nice to have more but its not really needed for 1080P 60FPs on a game console. I would like to see 1GB of graphics and 2GB of system RAM but I doubt that will happen.

    I'd expect it to have over 1 Gig for a next gen console.

    FUCK NO. It should least have 4 GB of RAM. And lots of internal storage. I love HDD and Nintendo can stop cutting corners.

    In a few years, early in the console's life, even 4gb will be considered puny.

    Except if it goes to waste and not used at all, then you're paying for something you're getting no use out of.

    Wat.

    The PS3 (current gen) has only 256MB.

    256MB -> 4GB sounds very far fetched.

    Well at least 2GB? One of the biggest problems with the ps3 was the amount of ram. http://myona.com/2011/08/15/rage-development-is-limited-due-to-ps3-memory-id/
    Sure, they work around it, but it needs more than 1GB for a next generation console, and yeah I after thinking about it 4GB seems like a lot for a console. :P
