New hardware seems a bit pointless at this point. The improvements on the user end are going to be so incremental compared to past generations. We're looking at the beginning of the cash-grab generation of new consoles, I guess. Not as an option, I mean, but as a mandate. Most likely a trend that will take us to the era of consoles being entirely replaced by PCs.
this isn't true at all, the hardware of current consoles (PS3, 360) is way too weak for current games, the hardware is in dire need of being replaced and I think the graphics/performance of games on the next gen of consoles will clearly reflect that
are you just saying random stuff?
developers have been watering down their graphics for a long time now due to PS3/360 limitations and the games STILL often run at 30 fps Edited, Feb 4th 2013 6:38pm by Poubelle
Oh yeah, real watered down.
You're nuts, man.
why do you say that? the 360 and ps3 are completely incapable of running new games properly. most current games run horribly on console, arkham city and DmC come to mind off hand, sonic generations, the hardware is way too outdated for these games, and the graphics ARE watered down to accommodate console limitations, and they still dont run properly
if you need an even clearer example, look at the evolution of Metal Gear Rising through development and the lengths they went to to make sure the game runs well on PS3s/360s. and even with the dated graphics you can still crash your console if you cut things up too much with your sword(not sure if you're familiar with that game)
my point is : Why am I nuts? everything I'm saying is perfectly reasonable, now you're just namecalling as well as making baseless claims and you just seem stupid/uninformed in my opinion, or out of touch with current tech Edited, Feb 4th 2013 6:53pm by Poubelle Edited, Feb 4th 2013 6:53pm by Poubelle
