You will see Feb 20th and all this next gen want be as big of a leap as last gen crap will end.

I don't care much about graphics, I'm excited about games being bigger in scope.

Hanso1230d ago

yeah me too current grafics looks fine too me

Gamer19821230d ago

Thats the thing we have been lacking. Graphics aren't the main thing. You want graphics? Get a PC! The thing about these new consoles is finally open world games are gonna be more in depth and amazing than ever.

More real
Sheer vastness in size
Realistic pedestrian AI

We will no longer have to put up with small islands and loading times every time you enter a room. Although some devs will have to because of game types obviously.
Consoles have also held PC back in this department but look at MMOS for a perfect example of what you can do. Look at the size of a world in say WoW or Guild Wars2. The reason they never made it to PS3 or 360 is the 512mb RAM for a start.
We are finally going to see more realistic worlds not in terms of graphics but size and realism.

If they're going to charge me more for a new console then the graphics better be a lot better. Otherwise there is no point in upgrading.

You guys always go on about how graphics aren't important. get a life. Why doe shtere have to be a choice, either good graphics or good gameplay? Why not both?

A great game has all of the above. A don't give me the Angry Birds argument or other crap. Great graphics enhances immersion just as much as gameplay.

I have to disagree with you only because right now graphics are not whats important its about the physics of a game. Grant it, these new systems that come out will be a little better than their sibling but I believe game devs need to focus on the physics/AI/Functions of games. I hope this generation will solve this problem.

DA_SHREDDER1230d ago

not just physcis and AI, but also frame rate issues. Motion blur could never make up for a solid 60fps.

Arksine1229d ago

In time there will be some noticeable improvements. Better AA, higher frame rate, higher resolution, more geometry, better textures, better shader effects, and better physics will all lead to more impressive visuals and bigger worlds.

Initially the games may not "look better" as much as they "play better". I suspect 3 or 4 years down the line next generation games will visually separate themselves from the current generation.

cannon88001229d ago

Whether you guys like it or not, graphics will always be the main selling point for any console. Exclusives might be on par though.

deSSy27241229d ago

Big leap? well, just buy a PC, mutliplatforms games are looking better on PC and games are cheaper than console versions. If you really want to know what power is: BUY A PC, over and out.

Im not trying to bash PS4/720 but cmon, you obiviously dont care about graphics that much if you are owning the same system 5-7 years, you own it BECAUSE OF GAMES, not hardware.

Last... yes, yes, i know the PS4 and 720 are going to have a relatively big leap compared to PS3/360 but i dont think the leap will be better than 6th gen vs 7th gen, dont get me wrong, it will be big but not that much and if you want even a bigger leap, get a PC, easy.

Sony needs games in the first place, they shouldnt do the same mistake like Wii U.... ok ok Nintendo fans, im not trying to bash it but cmon, thats the reality, Nintendo needs to announce more games, over and out.

Listen son, it doesn't take raw power alone to make a game look good, just look at 99.9 % of the PC games that came out, not 1 moved sounded and played like Uncharted, GT5, KZ.
So packing a MoNsTeR PC isn't going to get that...

It take's a cool art design, attention and time, something a prime exclusive developer will put into a game.

Perjoss1230d ago (Edited 1230d ago )

First paragraph...
I cant tell if you're serious.

Second paragraph...
Thats true, there ate wii games that look fantasic, Okami on the ps2 is another example of a good looking game that is not on bleeding edge tech.

superterabyte1229d ago

@Perjoss name one game that has better art style than either killzone or uncharted on pc?

superterabyte1229d ago

@Perjoss Disagree all you like doesn't make my point any less valid until you answer it

Son_Lee1230d ago

Nope. It'll allow for developers to make better engines. It's all about lifelike AI, better level design, more fluid animations, etc.

Shok1230d ago

DRAMATICALLY better? I say no. Noticeably? Yes.

Mr_cheese1229d ago

a reasonable answer, bubble for you

deSSy27241229d ago (Edited 1229d ago )

I can agree... maybe not like 6th vs 7th gen but i think the leap between 7th and 8th gen will be still good enough :)

BTW bubble from me too....

NintyJazz1229d ago

You need to make another video!

akaakaaka1230d ago (Edited 1230d ago )

lol "no"?
unreal, FF next gen engines say hi!!! they look and have far ahead teach to any engines from current gen.
and those are just two and i bet not the best looking engines that there will be and are only first gen of next gen engines tech..
