That's what we need, a true next-gen console. One that will get us excited about games again just like the old days, not a machine that puts Kinect first and TV above the gamer.

I'm happy MS is re-calibrating, but their first (and true) intentions really bothered me. If it weren't for Sony taking a strong stand, we'd all lose or rights!!!

The Dark Sorcerer is the first real game to rival CGI. I honestly believed it was highend CGI the whole time. But then I remembered that Quantic Dream are just that good. Killzone: Shadow Fall is also the most beautiful FPS ever seen on a console. Already we're seeing PS4 games take over the next gen.

I some what agree with you, but lets be honest, console games drive the video game market. Sure PCs can be much more powerful but they are rarely taken advantage of because of the market, platform and API overhead. Try running Crysis 2 or 3 on lets say ATI 1900 which slightly above the X360 at console quality if you can find a driver that works for that game.

Also with the PC gaming community pirating most of their titles PC games sell like third party games on the Wii U. I know there are a few exceptions like WOW, Diablo, Star Craft selling in the millions, but after maybe like 10 top tier titles, sells on the PC is dismal. The numbers I've seen could change with NPD starting to count digital sales.

I'm a PC gamer, my rig is decent, I upgrade my video card about every 15-18 months if the performance is there. But like every new generation of consoles, my PC upgrades slow because of the consoles performance. After 3 years or so PC graphics start to get out of reach of home consoles, that is usually the time I switch back to PC gaming and all of its yearly upgrades that goes along with it.

u can have the most powerful pc but most games are multiplatform

and console do set a bar for pc...

now that consoles have more power u can finally expect even better gaming experience on pc..

but u guys will always have to wait for us..

thats why very few games on pc today look better than ps4 or xbox one games..

those will come later

Plenty of Benchmarks to back up this FACT.

Right? Am I rite guys? !!!11ONE1!!!
Donnieboi  +   741d ago
I love the ps4 and believe it's very powerful (and everyone that knows me on n4g know ps4 is my top pick for next gen) ...BUT even the most powerful pc's don't look THAT good. Not until we get 4k gaming. 1080p isn't enough to create the illusion of realism.

Let's not get our hopes up so soon.

GribbleGrunger  +   742d ago
Running in real time on the PS4, and as David Cage said himself 'We can do better'. And remember, ALL the games that follow a QD tech demo look BETTER than the tech demo. Now enjoy the fact or move along to another thread related to your console of choice.

Any chance we could get a section on N4G dedicated to Mark Cerny!! :)

Seems like every other article is quoting him. Not complaining - it's good to see positive information, but my goodness has he ever become the poster boy for PS4!
hollabox  +   741d ago
He's a smart guy but he needs to back off a little bit. If or when something goes wrong, the person with the most press coverage seem to be the first one to walk the plank.

With that said Microsoft needs a guy like this instead of the idiots they have/had being the face of XB1. MS pulled an Nintendo, giving you the basic specs, nothing detailed, nothing exciting.Instead they had the same response as Nintendo, its all about the games which is true as well but for the right price.
g-nome  +   742d ago
Cerny needs to shut up now , we know how fantastic it is , but be careful to over-promise and under-deliver like the ps3.
The ps3 has nothing but 'blurred the lines ' in some games.

He's not the one making the articles.... All it is sites spinning things he said at the talks he has done Gamelab and Develop In Brighton 2013. So it's not really he's fault. These sites are just hungry for hits. Also and the n4g moderation with duplicates has been piss poor lately.

Also this title is a bit misleading read the article.

Just got Tomb Raider (steam sale) for the PC. I hooked up to my TV and got more excited about PS4. I am looking forward to the higher FPS and graphics of next gen while sitting on my couch.

Before you ask/say... My PC is not near my TV so Steam Big Picture is not a great option for me.

I have no idea what you're talking about. Are you saying that you hooked up your pc to your tv? Or did you buy the game, then went and got on your tv?

He said he bought the game and then hooked his PC to his TV to play it. It made him excited for next gen when he saw Tomb Raider running at a high resolution and high FPS.

I haven't used remote play, but I've definitely played vita on the pooper before. No point in not being honest about it...

If you disagree then you either don't have a vita or you are not being true to yourself!

Jdoki  +   742d ago
I agree the number of 'Mark Cerny said' articles is getting tiresome but it's not really his fault. He's not given many talks / interviews. It's just websites are fishing for hits by reporting him piecemeal instead of just once.
Thomper  +   742d ago
I think that next gen news is a bit thin on the ground, generally!
Jdoki  +   742d ago
The signal to noise ratio on N4G is quite astoundingly bad.

As much as I enjoy coming to this site (mainly for the over the top reactions and trolling), the amount of news compared to the amount of hit seeking crud is very one sided.

The games industry just doesn't generate that much news, but the 'journalistic' industry that has sprung up around it seems so desperate to keep the advertising money rolling in that they'll post anything.

The current standard of reporting is little better than the playground arguments over 'my Spectrum is better than your Commodore 64' - the only difference is that now these chumps are getting paid to act like kids.

/rant off

Come on, everybody knows the Commodore 64 was better than the spectrum. Just look at the multi-plats, they were in colour on the c64, half the time they'd be a single background colour with a black outline depicting the characters on the spectrum, honestly how 1981 is that?

Jdoki  +   741d ago
C64! WUT! No wayz dude!

Spectrum 4eva! :)

(I had a Speccy 128k +3, bloody useless device! I asked for a +2 with the tape deck and for some reason received the 'better' +3 with the disk drive... great! Games cost more and less to choose from and I ended up having to buy a tape deck and cable to plug in to it.)

Happy days

Btw... The Amiga did spank the Atari ST and I'll fight anyone who says different!!

@JDoki. Completely agree.

It seems like they are all trying to capitalise on any xbox vs playstation bs, or anti - Microsoft propaganda, and the trolls are all falling for it.
stuna1  +   741d ago
Microsoft created their own propaganda, by not being forthcoming as far as their plans! Notice how their not shouting from the rooftops about their 300,000 servers. Which only a small fraction would probably be devoted to games anyway! Thinking about its strengths were more than likely better served on the TV, Sports, and Skype side of things considering it's Microsofts Window 8 OS, which in turn is probably the one that will leave a bigger footprint out of the other two OS's, and from my understanding the other two OS's are just kernels. Thereby not being as extensive in their abilities, kind of like before Sony removed the Linux OS from the PS3, it could do basic computations, and basic code, but it wasn't a powerhouse in the arena if curing world hunger, or solving a nation energy crisis.

I suspect that the Window 8 OS takes up more of the 3GB devoted to the other 2 operating systems combined! If Microsoft want to answer questions, that would be my first.
Angeljuice  +   741d ago
If you're tired of them Thomper stop going to each and every one and 'Yawning"..Seriously Thomper, If you find something boring, why click on it in the first place?
Then just say "Bored of this YAWN", honestly, do you work for Microsoft?

You're too subtle for a standard troll, and seem very focused on trying to influence people's opinion of Mr Cerny in a negative way.

If you genuinely dislike the guy and find him boring, stop commenting and giving the same response on every article you see with his name on it. To be quite honest Thomper, my old China, it's kind of boring...YAW..(I can't its been used to death).
Cryptcuzz  +   740d ago
Steve Ballmer told Thomper that if he made 101 negative comments about Mark Cerny he would think about giving him a raise.

The_Klank  +   742d ago
I love people complaining about Cerny being to talkative.
He had two talks recently, most if not all these articles are from those talks. Its not like he is out every day giving out these tidbits of information.

And besides if you are so sick of him, I dunno, why not try and stop reading everything.

Graphical power isn't everything, but they do matter to quite a big extent.

The 1st party exclusives on PS4 will look better than the ones on the XB1 and 2-3 years into the gen, multiplats will look and run better on PS4. Keep in mind the Dark Sorcerer tech demo was only using 4GB of GDDR5 RAM. The PS4 has 7GB available for games. Imagine that. I also want to see Japanese 3rd parties take more and more advantage of the PS4. I think if it means ditching XB1, do it. Western devs will never make go fully exclusive to the PS4 though.

You fail at trolling just to let you know. I feel bad for you since no one is paying you any attention so I'll throw you a bone. What kind of bones do you like huh? How about an Xbone?

Games were confirmed to be running on early dev kits that can you know, not run properly do to running on early code?

You want to see a picture of Battlefield 4 at MS E3 show running on a PC?


Yeah....now go chew on your Xbone in the corner there and think about what just happened.
