Every time there are rumors about next gen video game consoles, the internet goes into a tizzy, but are we truly ready for next gen devices?
Ive been ready with two years now.
Will better hardware make better games? Please explain this to me.
How do you think Uncharted, God of War 3, Gears of War, Killzone 2 n 3, Mass Effect, Assassins Creed etc would have faired on...say the N64, or PS1, or the first Xbox. I hope that explains a little for you.
Have u seen Assassins creed ran on PS2...i remember Ubisoft showed a demo of it when the original idea of the game was created in the PS2 era. They showed it back in 2009 and it looked horrible compared to current gen tech and physics was very limited. Im so glad they choose to have waited for current gen. Next gen however, will look much better in terms of 1080p native and 60fps gameplay. Maybe not much in graphics from ps2 to ps3 leap but game physics will see the biggest improvement.
Good question. Not necessarily, but the higher computing power can breathe new life into games with gorgeous graphics. I'm talking about more effects that breed immersion and feed into a beautiful atmosphere. Also, game-play, believe it or not can open up with added power, creating new possibilities not capable on current-gen consoles. Depends on how developers use it at the end of the day. But yes, it is extremely possible.
If GTA IV was run on the PS3 or Xbox 360 with 4GB of ram then you would see a lot further into the distance and see less popups and possibly better anti aliasing. The restriction of small ammounts of ram alone in the current consoles restricts how far you can see into the distance which is one example why we need more ram in the next consoles along with other things that more ram and faster hardware will make a big difference.
Yes, two years now.
That's a pretty easy answer. We've had these same consoles for the better part of a freaking decade. It's been time for an upgrade for a while now. This is ridiculous ppl are still asking this question. This may will make 8!! Long years since ps3 and 360 were first unveiled. It's time to retire these dinosaurs soon and move on. Next gen is coming soon like it or not. Keep playing ps3 and 360 for the next 20 years if u want but the rest of the world is ready for new consoles.
I am, but im still gonna enjoy my ps3 for now until i got my hands on the thing called next gen console.
I am ready but my wallet is not.
I want to see more details of the Steam Box first.
I think I'm about ready to just build a PC that will give me next gen graphics.
Yes we are in fact I am holding and playing on onw right now playing Orochi Hyper ... the console is in my closet WHILE I PLAY IT ON MY BED AS I TYPE THIS!. I believe SONY and MS have their own VR headsets so we wont have to wait for oculust Rift's slow butt :D
I've got the money ready!
At least another 100 of these articals before any next gen console is on the shelves
I am not ready,I live on wellfare and cannot afford it,but would like ps4,hahaha got you.Bring it on BABY .I got money saved not only for ps4 but also for ps5 (if there is gonna be one,HINT Gaikai)In the meantime GOW Acension Last of Us will satisfy me. P>S no offence xbox,nintendo guys,but Im a PlayStation fan,I've owned Snes before,great times.My wife had the 1st xbx,its in the crawl space somewhere,anyway.Hopefully the next gen wont be like this one with fanboy crap.I wish all the fans of the other consoles the best .peace P.P.S Techically I dont need to save cause I work and pretty much when you work you feel freedom(moneywise).
When I play FFvs13, The Last Guardian, & Agent on PS3 then I'll be ready for next-gen.
been ready for new consoles since 2010
