Are the PS4 and Xbox1 actually upgrades?

One of the biggest concerns gamers have is whether or not the next-gen consoles, PS4 and Xbox One, are sufficient enough to bypass the current-gen in areas like graphics and engine performance. Are the new Xbox and Playstation worthy of their titles in the gaming industry? Grand Theft Auto V is out and Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag is coming out soon, but is the next-gen going to draw gamers in, or disappoint on opening day?

Please don't say an article is comparing machines that have been out 7 years against machines on launch day.

I know, what a dumb article.

In no possible way would the answer be "no".

Better question: Are stupid people still pretending to be journalists?

Take note author - you are contributing to the reason why real games journalism doesn't exist.

If PS4 is 8 - 10 times more capable than PS3 then it is an upgrade. PS3 was full of tech when it released, but nobody bought it thanks to price and negative media.
I am a little dissapointed that we didn't get Holographic Blue Ray, Super Cell B.E processors ect, but it was never going to happen after consumers spoke with their wallets last time. I bought a PS3 at around 00:10am on launch night, so I have the right to criticise fellow gamers for causing this lacklustre console generation we are entering. I cannot criticise Sony for using business sense.

They have new hardware that is more powerful....yep...that is an upgrade lol.

I get what the author is trying to say, but the title is just really bad.

There are inaccuracies in the article such as still referring to PS4 as less restrictive policies when of course MS has 180 their policies so that is a non issue for NOW (I still lost their trust from the X1 reveal).

Regardless I wouldn't call it a dumb article its more an article for casuals that don't follow gaming news daily or weekly and it does spark up the debate about the new consoles power.

I am disappointed that 1080p baseline is not attainable on a game like Ryse, which leads me to believe next gen is not as powerful as it needs to be to last 5 years let alone 10 years like the hardware makers like to state.

However, the real test will be in years 2 and 3 if these consoles are not producing next gen type games then yeah at that point I will say FAIL and we need better consoles.

All that said I think AC4 Blackflag looks great the oceans and island foliage look spectacular in next gen. That is preordered for me.
