At least 8 GB’s ram in next gen console’s

Crytek have recently publicly agreed with Dice and Avalanche studio’s that the next gen consoles should have minimum of 8 GB’s ram. Currently the average pc has 3 GB ram, whereas the most powerful home consoles, the PS3 and 360 on have 512 mb ddr3 ram, which has been described as a ‘crippling factor’ when it comes to visual performance. It is common knowledge that the development of our new consoles is underway, and maybe with us in the next few years; but current funds going into motion control development and the overhauling of current console’s its un-likely we will hear any good news on this front. This makes me wonder why these upgrades aren’t an option? not just ram, but graphics cards too.
