Dev on next-gen: Bring back “core gaming,” graphics to let you “see things you've never seen before”

Q-Games’ president Dylan Cuthbert hopes that the PS4 and next Xbox will focus more on core games. He also thinks that the “innovation” for next-gen consoles is the graphics technology as “you’ll see things you never seen before.”

Update:

The headline should be "Q-Games President: Next-Gen Graphics Encourage Gameplay Ideas." Apologies for the error.

I never knew the core gaming went away. It's always good for fresh ideas and new games, but I am going to watch closely at what they come up with.

A lot of pc Gamers will say they have already seen the graphics what the ps4 can do.
Something tells me that we are in for one hell of a ride next gen

Just think less than a month for the best E3 ever guys cannot wait what a time to be a gamer :)

Ezio20481085d ago

Exactly, BF3 and Crysis 3 are few of the juggernauts on PC but certainly PS4/Nextbox will pioneer to an unprecendented level. I prefer PS4 simply coz i love Sony. ;)

Here's the thing though, i myself am a PC gamer, and i've played all the graphical great maxed out(not crysis 3 maxed but it still looked great even though i thought it sucked as a game) and yeah while a few games do show what next gen will do(possible even more than it can do) the fact is not many PC games test the hardware at that level. Sure you can mod the games but they only go so far and are almost always very poorly optimized. With Console games now using some of the latest graphical features i think it'll make PC gamers (such as myself) a lot happier as now all you favorite devs will now be using, optimizing, and setting the standard of the newest gaming technology.

Q-Games??

What have they ever done that made a difference??

Knushwood Butt1085d ago

Well, they were one of the first to release games in 1080p for the PS3.

MoveTheGlow1085d ago

They set the course for independent developers way before it was cool. Check out their DSiWare releases and Pixeljunk Eden.

Also, they're the only ones who have the guts to support what Tetsuya Mizuguchi wanted to do after Rez. That alone puts them ahead of the pack. If you want companies that have informed the norm in triple-A games, no, they didn't do anything to create that, and thank Jubileus they didn't.

'you’ll see things you never seen before'

I've been seeing games in 1080p and high detail for years now..

Bladesfist1085d ago

"you will see things others have been seeing since early 2000."* fixed.

MrDead1085d ago

You do know the difference between resolution, texture detail and what the next gen game engines bring us don't you? 1080p doesn’t mean next gen.

If it would make you happy why not ask dev’s to keep all current gen engines so that the new consoles can run everything at 1080p+ at 60fps+.

TwistedMetal1085d ago

i agree havent seen anything like god of war 3 on pc. just putting the slider to 1080p on pc means nothing. pc games need more heart and soul put into the graphics. less of that fallout, WoW type mmo stale graphics.

MysticStrummer1084d ago

A PC gaming elitist commenting on a console article? How novel.

Do you guys know how insecure this makes you look?

I'm guessing not.

I'm so glad the link goes to the full interview and not the crappy selective version at beefjack.

Casual gamers are fickle as f**ck.
Today, Ipad is their gaming God, tomorrow is the next craze.
So, Lets bring Hardcore BACK!
The casual crowd will drag us (gaming community) into a ditch, then head to the next craze, and it will game over for us.
So in the nicest way possible, F Them. :)

CEOSteveBallmer1085d ago

I agree with you totally. Im not bashing casual gamers but look at the 90's gaming era where games are so hard to beat and yet small kids could play them. unlike today, where there is this "New cool craze stuff" like Candy crush. even gamers I know are so into it its so embarrassing to think. Casual gaming just "stemmed" out of Hardcore gaming. Nothing beats the original. Even mario is a core game.

Ezio20481085d ago

hahaha...lol.
But damn right mate. Hardcoreee gaming is back in its fullest form. :D

ichimaru1084d ago

that was a scary read. you realize " they" are just gamers who aren't passionate about games and play for fun right? heck if it weren't for casuals this industry wouldn't be a multi billion dollar parrot, your devs might have budgets a quarter of the size they are now and consoles would have half the services they offer now because there no big pocket casuals to compete over. the hardcore make a small fraction of the industry, but we demand the most

MRMagoo1231084d ago

There is no way on earth casuals are the reason the industry is going well, if it where not for core gamers consoles wouldnt sell at all, no casual gamers fork out $1000 AUS for a console when its released and if they didnt sell for that kinda price they would not have bothered making them in the first place with all the new specs.

Casual gamers are the reason achievements/trophies where made, they need some award every time they complete a lvl or kill a bad guy, casual gamers are the reason why games all became COD. all in all core gamers are the ones that made the industry what it is and a lot of the early core gamers are now the developers of the games now.

you are just plain wrong in every way it isnt funny.

ichimaru1083d ago (Edited 1083d ago )

you, being of sound mind and adult judgment whole heartedly believe that there are 140million "hardcore" gamers sustaining this.market? that must be why sony and Ms have been trying to beat each other out for features like netflix and Facebook instead of taking chances on cult favorites that push the envelope but sale like used cardboard
