Shuita, for Examiner, writes, "Avalanche Studios, the developer behind the “Just Cause” series, posted several job ads on Gamasutra this past Wednesday. The listings mention that the studio is currently developing a “next-generation graphics engine” for what possibly may be the PS4 and Xbox 720."

No doubt ps4 will bring amazing visuals and great exclusives.

Exclusives and all the multiplats. It'll bring everything and more, yet again. Safe to say Sony will be reviving some of the old PS1 IPs everyone wanted this gen but didn't get.

better be a fricking legend of dragoon going on for ps4 lol

showtimefolks1222d ago

i sure hope so, with all the IP's sony owns along with a much more easier to develop for console ps4 could be a killer machine. when xbox720 and ps4 launches wii-u sadly will be a forgotten machine and that's not good cause wii-u does somethings really good.

nintendo is gonna find itself in the middle of no where and its gamecube all over again(great 1st party games not great support from 3rd parties)

@carrotin, They've missed out on a lot of exclusives? Boy then I wonder what Microsoft has been doing with their exclusive title department. Sony's gaming division is one of the few profitable divisions, would it not make sense to invest money into that? You have to spend money to earn money and I wouldn't be surprised if they dropped their TV division. Also do you want to come up with a list of "superior" 360 mutliplats? I bet you I could come up with one that has a larger amount of games that perform better on the PS3. Stop talking out of your ass buddy.

Not the way 3rd party devs were complaining about production cost this gen. Maybe 1st party will do most of the lifting again, but I want to see more than 1st/3rd person shooters.

Sony3601221d ago (Edited 1221d ago )

Christ, already nuthugging a console before it's even released. Remember what the Ps3 had going for it when it was first released this gen? Neither do I.

If you should have learned something from this gen, it's to stay grounded until you see what a console has to offer on release.

I'll buy whichever offers the better all round package at a fair price. Then if the other develops nicely I'll get that one too, just like I did this gen.

If it's anything like this gen, it'll probably be an aditional 3-4 years before I'll want a Ps4. I'm hoping Sony learned from the losses the made this gen, thanks to the arrogant marketing when the Ps3 first launched. Microsoft may be greedy, but claims made by Sony early on, combined with the cost, were insulting to most gamers.

That said, I'm also hoping M$ stop being so freaking greedy and let me play with my friends for free, stop charging extra for a wireless adapter, and stop asking for more money just for sufficient storage.

What you certainly can be sure of next gen is:

-More cloud storage.
-More "free to play" games with micro-transactions.
-More "season pass" behavior from publishers, with regards to DLC.
-Much more paid-for DLC.
-A rip-off priced Call of Duty, that millions of people will still buy.
-More gimmicks aimed at the casual gamer, like Move and Kinect, that will never do as well as the Wii.
-Right now it's impossible to say which will be more powerful, given that the previous gen xbox was 5x that of the Ps2, and that this gen was pretty much neck-and-neck. The same can be said for sales, which the Ps2 killed with, but the 360 had this time.

Stay grounded, that's all I'm saying.

oh yes, timed exclusives because MS doesn't have any first party devs... oh wait! They actually have more than Sony and Nintendo! lol

IAMERROR1221d ago

proof that this site is infested with Sony fanboys. I state a fact and people get mad and disagree! But they agree with some anti-MS troll bait comment! haha you guys are too funny! Never change

Snookies121221d ago

@IAMERROR - Then why is it that Sony alone beats them out with first party exclusives...?

I'm not saying you're wrong, just saying Microsoft needs to start doing something for their gamers...

Sony3601221d ago

It's funny that the word "timed exclusives" is used here, when the amount of time you had to wait for a decent ps3 exclusive was nearly coma inducing.

IAMERROR1221d ago

@Snookies12

A lot of them are newly formed, prepping for the NextXbox, remember we're talking about Next gen here. There WILL be (real) exclusives, to imply anything else is ridiculous. Look at all the 1st party devs making games for the Nextbox. It's going to get very interesting next year. Same goes for ps4 :)

Yes, no doubt the next Xbox will bring great graphics. Multiplats will look very good and exclusives like Halo 5 will be friggin astonishing BUT; Sony has like 3 times the exclusives MS does and that's a FACT, rofl.

PS4 and Steambox all the way for me.

they only developing the engine now ?, would rather hear they half way through making a damn game already..
after the engines finished, i wonder how many years it will take them to make just cause 3..
the more i think about it, it seems less and less likely that we'll see a next ps or xb before this time next year.

besides maybe watchdogs and a couple other possibles, there aint no content ..

Riderz13371222d ago

This is old news buddy they have been working on next gen for a quite a while. Possibly ever since they released Just Cause 2.

Heisenburger1222d ago

Why?

*Just 'Cause*

I have logged one hundred and one hours into Just Cause 2. It was also my first 'plat'.

I think Just Cause 3 has become one of the proverbial "system sellers". Well, for ME at least.

Sandmano1222d ago

I played it too it drove me Mad in the Process though
