Submission + - Nvidia walked away from PS4 hardware negotiations (

An anonymous reader writes: Tony Tamsai, Nvidia’s senior vice president of content and technology, has said that providing hardware for use in the PlayStation 4 was on the table, but they walked away. Having provided chips for use in both the PS3 and the original Xbox, that decision doesn’t come without experience.

Nvidia didn’t want to commit to producing hardware at the cost Sony was willing to pay. They also considered that by accepting a PS4 contract, they’d have to not do something else in another sector. In other words, the PS4 is not a lucrative enough platform to consider when high-end graphics cards and the Tegra line of chips hold so much more revenue potential.
