Xbox 360 isn't maxed out yet, says Epic - "there'll always be something more we can figure out"

OXM UK: "Rumours of the death (that's to say, exhaustion) of current generation console technology have been greatly exaggerated, it seems. According to Epic's lead level designer Jim Brown and People Can Fly art director Waylon Brinck, Gears of War: Judgment represents another quantum leap in terms of graphics and performance - and Brinck is confident studios can squeeze further gains from the hardware in future."

No...they say the opposite...all the time

ND said they maxed out the Ps3 3 times now. Atleast EPIC are honest that they didn't fully utilise the 360 for the new gears

Blackdeath_6631960d ago

honest? and how can you verify their honesty?

CEOSteveBallmer1960d ago

So why didn't they utilize it to the fullest??

admiralvic1960d ago

"maxing out" always sounded like marketing speak for getting a lot out of the system. Similar to how Apple calls their displays Retina, even though it's just a "buzz" word.

I am inclined to believe Epic, just because you can almost always do something better.

The X360 can not do 1080p @ 60fps so therefore it's MAXED OUT!

sure you can figure out little things here or there but other than that the system has Hit the wall!!!

dlocsta1960d ago

That is just a plain stupid statement. No current system can perform on that level and non were designed to do so. How does not being able to reach a spec it was not designed to achieve proof of its obsoletion?

Jake11111960d ago

I fully agree with you. The dummies after that state these systems were not supposed to do this??? Stupid... Sony claimed the PS3 could do 120 FPS at 1080P! Don't you remember??? I agree, theses systems are done... The next system out will prove this..

While they figure it out, I'll be playing my PS4. Respectfully.

AngelicIceDiamond1960d ago

Who's Epic trying to convince? It not like Gears 4 will be on 360 or any type of new Ip of sorts, and they know that? What's the point of this statement exactly?

Look at the games on ps2 at the end of his life-cycle, god of war 1,2 final fantasy 12, gran turismo 4 amazing graphics. For sure Xbox 360 isn't maxed out yet.Have a nice day.

"there'll always be something more we can figure out"

Don't they mean "there's still something more we can figure out"?

Their comment gives the impression the 360's potential is limitless and reall it's anything but that for every console that isnt upgradable, they'll ma it out soon for sure...

Usually, it comes down to being able to optimise the way something is rendered/coded rather than "squeezing more out the console".

For example, somebody could look at the way that a game's code applies textures at runtime and realise that there is one-to-many loops in the code which if fixed could speed-up the method and free up resources for other things.

Industry buzz words are so cute, thankfully we know they are done with current consles after Judgment and can focus their efforts on the next Xbox for future Gears titles. Would love to see that game at 60fps.
