It'll be interesting to see the quality of the launch line-up, even some dated 5-yr old cards can punch out the bulk of AAA games on highest settings.

I think I will be satisfied if the graphical capabilities are similar to the level of star wars 1313. If its higher than that and I think it will be then its still a win win.

I remember back in the day people think the 360 and PS3 will carry high end games graphics exactly as half life 2 at max setting or F.E.A.R. Then we saw the 360 and PS3 displaying games for all 7 years of their existence far beyond those games.

Crysis and battlefield 3 will look dated when next gen consoles appear just like how doom 3, farcry, fear and half life 2 became dated easily.

They will look better than 1313. Star Wars 1313 is only using Unreal 3.

Yup I agree, But I do think for the first year most games will look like 1313 and then they get better as time progress like every gaming console.

Hell imo it stacks up with some of the best Pc games! Look at the last of us

sorry, you were saying?
i was busy staring at Chloes ass...
wait, what?

Yes because the rumored CPU's in the PS4 and Xbox are junk

dcbronco1864d ago

no one even knows what those processors can do yet.

RaidensRising1865d ago

If you imagine quality games like TLOU. UC3. Halo 4 in 1080p then no the expectations are valid.

Nah. I'm a PC gamer first and foremost, but I think some people underestimate what the next consoles will be capable of.

Even a PC with the rumored specs of the PS4 and Durango will do quite a bit better than run current high end console games at 1920 x 1080 resolution.

My HD 7950 can run The Witcher 2 maxed out at a steady 50fps (with monitor set to same refresh rate) and 1080p resolution. It also blasts through virtually every multiplatform game at 60 fps and 1080p.

The fact that consoles have less over-head and games can be programmed to the metal without the inefficiency of having to make sure it works on a variety of different hardware setups (as on PC) means that next gen console games will look quite a bit better than TLOU or Halo 4. And it will do it all in 1080p as well.

60 fps will likely be more common than it was this generation, but will probably still come down to the developer and what they are trying to achieve.

In the end some people are probably expecting too much, but I think that many people are expecting too little.

No. We're expecting too little. Next-Gen is utterly gonna blow us away. Mark my words.

Qrphe1865d ago (Edited 1865d ago )

I back you up.

3rdDimension1865d ago

Yes they are expecting far too much. It will make the reality of things hurt that much more.

classic2001865d ago

So I wonder how good you think next gen will look.

NastyLeftHook01865d ago

we barely got out of the sdtv times, and vcr's. then went to hdtv's and dvd, then bluray( destroyed hddvd)

i would be happy if they just made games bigger. even if it meens 480p

contradictory1865d ago

you serious...?
welcome to the DAY OF TOMORROW
AKA the present

480p would look like mud...
