Xbox 720 And PS4 Games Need Smarter AI And Not Super Realistic Graphics

Game & Guide: "Next generation consoles from both Microsoft and Sony are nearly upon us, excitement is in the air, and fanboys are plotting some new witty insults in a dark place somewhere after consuming all the rumors the Internet has to offer." (Microsoft, PS4, Sony, Xbox One)

"Super Realistic Graphics" can be associated with "Smart or Smarter AI" just like The Last of Us in this generation !

Yea they need both not one or the other. I'm tired of hearing they need this not that just do both.

Oh you beat me to it. Walker. well said :-)

Naughty Dog is well ahead of the curve after Uncharted 3...

And it is - quite clearly - one of the most beautiful video games of its age. Where Uncharted 3 is peerless and unparalleled is in its ability to defy the technological constraints of current-generation platforms, which raises an interesting question about whether ideas are the real premium now over and above the technological arms race that has powered current-gen console game development. We put that point to Naughty Dog's Richard Lemarchand.

"I think that we are rapidly approaching the point where ideas are more important than the technology but I don't think we're quite there yet," he reckons.

"I think we have a ways to go in terms of graphical technology, in terms of more sophisticated skin shaders and shaders for other kinds of material. Translucent materials are still proving to be a problem for us. It's very difficult for us to make something that looks distinctively like a piece of glass rather than a piece of clear plastic, for instance.

"In terms of physical, dynamic simulations, we can keep grinding that out for quite some time. We do a very good job of making great-looking fire and smoke in Uncharted 3 - and I hope the visual effects guys won't mind me saying this because it's amazing how good the world looks in Uncharted 3 - but I'm sure they have a million and one new ideas for making dynamic fire simulations that'll be even more impressive than we've already done, that would be even more processor intensive than what we've already done.

"But I do like the implication of your question and, yes, the world really is our oyster. We're only limited by our imaginations. It might sound corny, but I believe it's true."

Better animation would also be in order, why is this never mentioned?

I don't really care for both I just want the system to be able to render more objects make the game more life like. I will like to see more motion in my tv. Simple things like a bird just randomly flying in the sky or view a room in through a window. This can make sandbox games maps even bigger more exploring of the world's setting from the creators imagination.
