The problems with seeing Next-Gen tech so early

ShadowKingpin from VVGtv Writes: Remember the jump from SNES to N64? How about N64/PS1 to PS2/Gamecube/Xbox? PS2/Xbox/Gamecube to PS3/360/Wii…..? Every single time we got to see the graphics of the next generation of gaming, what did you think about your current generation? I bet 50% of you said that you didn’t care anymore and were more excited for the next generation.

To be honest with you I think their Is a difference between a hardcore gamer and a graphics whore a new game engine does not make me question games that onced wowed me visually...It's still metal gear solid 4. NOT metal gear what.

ShadowKingpin1480d ago

I didn't mean to sound like a graphics whore, or that I was hating on MGS4. I'm an extreme MGS fan and love everything about the series. I was just mentioning that most people go for graphics, and that is all I hear about, which is why I wrote this article. Sorry for the confusion man.

I feel this site needs a new section for people to talk about next gen because amoungst all the greatness of this gen and the greatness still to come amoungst this gen...I feel it is out weighted with people who are currently ungreatful with what they have...sounds like winging to me

ShadowKingpin1480d ago

Personally, I am most excited for what is still to come of this generation. I'm not really ready for next gen yet. In a few years, I will be more ready for it, but I would love to savor every moment of these new IP's first.

ANIALATOR1361480d ago

you're absolutely right. The majority of people moaning for next gen are people who don't play enough PS3 exclusives to see how amazing games can look on current systems. people need to step back and play some ps1 games and appreciate how great the graphics are now. 360 owners are probably the ones who are wanting a new system because microsoft isnt pushing any graphical heights with their exclusives

^^ Its comments like these I don't understand "360 owners are probably the ones who are wanting a new system because Microsoft isn't pushing any graphical heights with their exclusives."

Halo 4 looks amazing. But even so whys it matter? Video games are supposed to be fun and trust me I've played some crappy looking games that are a hell of a lot more fun than your best looking games. Your comment sounds a little fanboyish as well because I've seen everyone complain about wanting next gen and that includes ps3 owners.

I still have an issue watching that Final Fantasy Tech Demo shown earlier this week. Some tech is great to see. But too early is a problem. It does in fact need to be worked with a bit more. Development and tech side alike.

Thia gen obviously still has life in it. The Last of Us, Beyond, Crysis 3 and Halo 4 all prove that. Honestly im not ready to drop $600+ on a new system. What I absolutely hate most about this gen is its seemed like people have stopped becoming gamers. I play video games because they're fun I don't play them because they look good. Another example of an annoyance are people hating on the Wii U. Im excited for it because im a gamer its a new system with fantastic possibilities. Its just sad that gamers aren't just about playing games that are good anymore no matter what they look like.

You said it beautifully my friend :)

Personally, I'll just tell the people who want next gen (and the people disagreeing) to basically suck it. Be grateful for the dozens of amazing games they have yet to play, or if they all that money (which they don't) then get a freaking PC and play the exclusives on ultra high max definition.

as for the people just wanting them released so they can talk trash all over again like in 2006-now, I only wish I had enough middle fingers for you pieces of trash.

6 years isnt enouph for you. ?..
You still want 1 or 2 years , why not letting the ps4 release and you continue playing on these old consoles , since you people think its still have life in it then just dont buy ps4

What i want to say to you that playing on current gen is fun but not as fun and impressing like when the ps3 released , wow factor is gone for me , wasting good ideas on consoles that doesnt give justic to it or it could be better is just wasting time/money..etc

DigitalAnalog1480d ago

It's whether or not the next-gen has significantly more value than this one and if Star Wars 1313 and Watch Dogs are considered "next-gen", then I'm sorely disappointed.

Gorbenshore1480d ago

The current generation consoles shouldn't retire just yet although the speculation about next gen tech/graphics should be taken into consideration. Eventually, consoles will be pushed to thier limits and won't be able to go any further so, of course, next gen would be a necessity. Graphics are still relevante and important (good graphics + good gameplay > "who gives" graphics + good gameplay)
