Who cares about the next generation? – Reader’s Feature

GameCentral reader:

So, are you excited? The Wii U is out next week and with it comes the start of the next generation of home consoles. This is historically a time of excitement within the gaming community with questions about improved graphics, tech specs and what the games will be like floating around. Except I don't really get that impression this time round. I'd actually go so far as to say there's an apathy around the next gen and, as with most things, I think this apathy could lead to some serious problems.

The story is too old to be commented.

As long as next gen provides the horsepower for better AI then I'm all for it.

Don't forget phsyics, support for more players and larger maps. Think BF3 on pc vs console.

wow, looks like 3 people don't care about better AI. Would love to know what games they have been playing where the AI actually made the game a challenge.

Cell is perfect for great ai..and not maxed out at all.

But next gen graphisms, photo realism, better resolution for 3D, etc are for sure a good reason to always care about next gen (ps4, pc, xbox..)

Me! I am buying the Orbis/PS4. :P

I have come to the conclusion that my vita was both a partial investment in the system and games it has AS WELL AS being the companion gadget to the successor of the PS3.

When I can use my VITA as a controller to all upcoming games on a big screen while DM'ing friends, and never getting out of a game that will rock.

This video shows where the future of gaming is really heading.

The next generation of consoles is probably going to turn up a profit and will please people, but it might be the last of home consoles. So, while there are people who will care, it looks like gaming is going to take a different path. The only way to make a relevant console anymore is by being a bit gimmicky. I don't think graphics are going to improve all that much by next generation.

I could be wrong about the graphics, but it doesn't look like that's going to be the main focus of gaming pretty soon.

And, to be honest, I think the major changes that are going to happen to gaming are going to start helping us move a way from the horrible business practices that has tied down the gaming medium for a long time.

So, I see hope for the future of gaming.

the way i see it, computer development will go back to the old days, where one are two man teams created a game

computers will become so powerfull that all you have to do is tell your computer to generate random trees/rocks give me a mountain with a river running through it, put a castle on top of the mountain. etc etc

i can never see the industry happy with facebook games , there will always be bigger and better

a good example would be the car industry, always coming out with new specs for there cars, and i dont think it will stop until we have flying cars, and even then we will have car/spaceships
