Playeressence's Furious Francis discusses his general confusion of what to expect graphically from the Xbox 720 and PS4.
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.
yeah me too current grafics looks fine too me
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.
not just physcis and AI, but also frame rate issues. Motion blur could never make up for a solid 60fps.
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.
Whether you guys like it or not, graphics will always be the main selling point for any console. Exclusives might be on par though.
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.
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.
@Perjoss name one game that has better art style than either killzone or uncharted on pc?
@Perjoss Disagree all you like doesn't make my point any less valid until you answer it
Nope. It'll allow for developers to make better engines. It's all about lifelike AI, better level design, more fluid animations, etc.
DRAMATICALLY better? I say no. Noticeably? Yes.
a reasonable answer, bubble for you
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....
You need to make another video!
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..
Metal Gear Solid GroundZero It's open world. Amazing graphics and visuals. So i expect at least that kind of graphics. At least 3x more powerful then current generation consoles.. ps1 to ps2 was big step. Same happened to the ps3. So why we are expecting less this time?. isn't the tech available?. Didn't the ps3 cost 600$?. Why not doing the same?. ps3 is doing great now so why not doing the same for the ps4 ???? Hope sony shock you all. Im not expecting anything. I'mm just looking at the history ..
prepare for Metal Gear Solid meets Minecraft.
I don't understand what you said o.o
no, wii u is next gen, and does not blow the wii away, and the other machines won't blow away, their current gen counterparts either, graphics can only go so far, and after seeing, xeno blade for wii, watchdogs for 360, mg game for ps3, then no way.these games have stellar graphics. look at the wii u' new X game, it's next gen, they are better, than the 360, ps3, and wii, but don't blow them away, same will be for 720 and ps4. but in the end who cares? graphics don't make a game. it's all about the gameplay.
I feel guilty that i stopped reading at "Wii U is next gen". Forgive me
wii u is next gen stop acting like a five year old, grow up and get over it.
Yet my grammar is that of a mature person and I have am not the one making pointless, senseless rants
You're blind if you look at Xenoblade and then X and think "Ehhhhh i dont see a difference." You are just talking out of your ass. And no, WiiU is not nextgen. Its just another made up half step from the cheap fools at Nintendo. Just like the Wii.
@wiium64 wii u is not next gen stop acting like a five year old, grow up and get over it
@wiium64 The only right thing you said is that Wii U is next gen aka the first 8th gen desktop console but other than that, sorry, you talk too much nonsense. Wii U has much better graphics than Wii, PS4/720 are going to have even much better graphics than Wii U and PS3/360, ARE YOU BLIND? ofc graphics dont make a good game, but if you have a game with good gameplay and graphics, why dont you want to have it? OMG, i cant believe i read this.
They will look nice- I just hope that they use the extra power for things like AI and Physics. Also, it would be great for tracking info that way enemies won't have to rely on Triggers and pre-set events. It would be great to have AI that could track a player the entire space of a game world and realistically (no cheat and not stupidity) learn how to find a players in an entire game world.
No , just smoother(60FPS) and no tearing at 1080p ... we all expect no less (and no more really ) than that.
