Next generation this, next generation that. Remember the times when consoles updated every decade or so (or wait, were those PCs)? Regardless, everyone’s got an opinion on the next wave of consoles.
im happy someone is saying this instead of idiots like ubisoft who whine about new consoles, and dont even push them to the limit, UBISOFT hows about you make a sequel to pop08, instead of bitching about old tech you havnt even fully realized yet.
Did you ever think he's saying it so that people will buy his game on current consoles, rather then waiting for new consoles and games? You realize when a new console and games for that console are announces, the current consoles and games take a huge hit, because people are wanting to play the newest games on the newest console. This is why Nintendo was foolish to announce the Wii U so early, it killed the Wii's sales. If this guy comes out and says we need new consoles, that doesn't inspire confidence in what they've done with the current hardware.
after was i saw at e3 the wii u dont deserve my money...the biggest nintendo e3 letdown-boring this gen
Tbh, I don't think simply new graphics are gonna make everyone jump ship immediately like crytek and epic they will. Games right now look incredible and I personally don't think we will see a ps2-ps3, xbox-xbox 360 leap next time around. Especially with the cost of development ballooning as it is.
Its already started in a way, I'm sure a lot of the big developers are working on next gen games. Infinity Ward is working on the next gen version of Modern Warfare 4, while Sledgehammer is working on the current gen versions. Even if there isn't a huge leap, 6x the power of the current consoles is still more than the Xbox to Xbox 360, which was 5x the power. I'll definitely be all about next gen when those consoles get announced, I'm stoked for Wii U as well, but when the 720 gets announced, everything and every penny is set aside for that bad boy.
It's easy to say that when you don't push graphics, animation and AI. Making games for 3+ platform is not easy and they don't have time like Naughty Dog to study cell architecture. Also it's better they either stop complaining or do like crytek & dice and stop waiting... http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.engadget.com/201... And with planetside 2 coming seems sony is not waiting either. ironic.
pop08 was one of the worst games I ever played.
thats your opinion and i fully respect it no reason for me to rage, but alot of people liked it and want a true conclusion to the game, instead of another giant cliffhanger, not knowing what will happen next.
POP 08 was better than the abysmal game that followed it... They took risk and i rather enjoyed the fighting system, it was a good starting point, if they took the time to enhance every part of that game the next one couldve been even better. If i remember correctly it was rated fairly well...off the top of my head IGN gave it a 9+
Problem is prototype. This game isn't pushing nothing, graphics are like a first gen ps3/360 game.
Wait, what does Prototype have to do with any of this?
Comming from someone who daveloped a game with last gen graphics. I'll take your comment as you being scared to develop on new hardware. I beat the first game. I loved it but graphically it's last gen.
I never really seen any game last gen that looks like Darksiders 2.
Or Darksiders 1 for that matter....
Well of course there's life in these machines still because the only thing that ever get pushed is their technical abilities. Games are still essentially exactly what we've played since we can remember. Absolutely no attention to ai development or interaction past simple presets for example and so much potential left unexplored. The only thing we'll need from these new machines is better graphics if games fail to expand in interesting ways past just being quirky. How about truly living cities of ai that do more than simple faked intelligence- fair enough the argument is still that it's too demanding for this gen even but next there really isn't any excuse next gen So will next gen simply be more of the same over and over again with only the occasional gem emerging from it all- while of course looking yet more pretty?. Forgive people for not sounding all that excited but there is a limit Next gen will be no different until people start to tire of simply better looking games
"Games are still essentially exactly what we've played since we can remember" O really? So back on the super nintendo, ps1, etc you could go online and play multiplayer? "Back in the day" you could customize you own maps and do live video recording while playing them online like on Halo Reach? Funny, I dont recall being able to do that since the beginning of video game time.
Hmmm one view yes but you don't understand where I'm coming from. Games are as good as and to be fair better refined in most ways with each generation but they haven't evolved any in the way a minority audience still yearns for. In a few years time you will see a decline for yourself anyway
IMO I think its time to bring on the next generation consoles next year. Im tired of devs saying that their game pushes the PS3 or 360 to its limits. We have been hearing this for over 3 years and its getting old. Sure there are great looking games coming out for PS3 and 360 but I think we should move forward
Everytime Someone mentions Next Gen I Post this link and say Look at "Beyond Two Souls" http://24.media.tumblr.com/...
@black dude, a bullshot from a game thats not out yet means nothing, ps3 and 360 devs are ALWAYS posting bullshots! here's fake drake bullshot; http://area.autodesk.com/us... lol........in-game he looks about 1/4 of that clarity and resolution has NONE of that detail
The fanboys seem to have joined together to disagree with you, facts don't sit well them and they don't believe in the term LOD.
i agree in game Drake looks nothing like that... but that pic is from a cut scene where Drake's character model does look much closer to that
the dev has also stated that the pc version is far and away the best version, with much higher resolution textures, no jaggies, better performance, depth of field, ssao, better shadows and true hdr lighting, and while this is really true for all pc games vs console, it illistrates the face that devs are really very limited as to what they can do on these machines with 8-9 year old parts in them darksiders 2 is gonna be awesome no matter hich platform you play it on, but there is absolutely ZERO untapped power in ps3/360 thats like saying we really havent seen what VHS can do!
Wii nope 360 nope PS3 yes.
Wii nope 360 nope PS3 nope
The consoles we have now are just fine. This generation is in its prime right now and the graphics look excellent, like how much better do you want your graphics be? It can go on for another few years at least. No need for pointless upgrades.
It's not about graphics. AI, map size, player-count, etc., etc. There's a reason PlanetSide 2 isn't on the consoles with 2000+ players and it has nothing to do with graphics.
Graphics are at such an advanced stage now that next gen all games will be at the same level graphics wise. For developers to be able to show games apart from each other they will need to improve other things such as NPC AI. An improvement in all the small things (rather than superficial graphics) is the difference between a game that is crap but has amazing graphics and a game that has amazing graphics and is an amazing game. With the improvements the next gen of consoles will have, developers will be able to make this possible. Of course they could just keep developing generic **** with nice graphics to make a buck, time will tell.
720p 30 fps no AA, People need to open their eyes, 8 year into the console cyle, we need new one.
