The author makes 8 predictions on what new features will be on the next versions of the Xbox and Playstation
No. I don't want it to be a portable console with no physical media and completely weird controllers. But it needs to be able to display 1080p and 60fps at a minimum. An HDD greater than 500GB would be preferable at launch too.
At that point a 2 TB Hdd would be needed with the graphics that would be produced
Yeah I agree at that point 1TB would be a MAJOR letdown, let alone 500gb. But lets be honest about the next consoles being smaller at launch because of mores law. This law has been happening since before the genesis. Last time I checked (if we ignore the 3do). The consoles have been getting bigger and bigger! Look at the PS2, and now the PS4, Look at the xbox, and now the xbox one. The reason? Because the majority of shrinking is on cards, and CPU's after they have been out. Look at the pc! Look at xbox360 elite, and xbox slim, Look at PS3 fat and PS3 slim. But they are all starting off larger before shrinking. No one wanted a TRAILING edge PS4, and xbox one! We want cutting edge! So the new living large stuff was stuffed in there. Same will happen to xbox two, and PS5. The cutting stuff is large the trailing stuff is whats slimmed down. Look at CPU's, and GPU's before they get put in a laptop. They may get a new name but 90% of them are downgrades from the larger desktop (few exceptions). Think I'm kidding these video cards take 300 watts by themselves, but the cache size and speed and transistor counts go down when they are put in a laptop.
Prepare to be disappointed, not all games will be 1080p 60fps no matter how powerful it is. (Unless its uber powerful that'll cost $1000+)
4k at 30fps should be the minimum for next gen, the price of 4k tvs has dropped much quicker than I thought they would.
No, no, no lets stay focused on The PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One right now. The very last thing I wanna do is dream about PS5 and Xbox infinite especially considering this gen has problems that need fixing and hasn't even hit its stride yet with software. No, lets talk about 8 things current gen needs.
Xbox two? Really? Smh
I'll make a prediction. The next Xbox is not going to be named Xbox Two.
No Xbox 10
Agreed, MS has repeated shown they can't count in sequence :) My prediction: Xbox Vista
Xbox One-der. Mark my words.
LOL its highly unlikely that every home will have super-fast fiber-optic online connections. I think physical option will always be there as it should. The size of games will only increase and I doubt everyone will be able to afford unlimited bandwidth and high speed internet.
Controller, TV, Cloud.
Not much will change between generations. It will have a similar controller to current. Might have new features similar to the speaker in PS4 controller and rumble triggers in Xbox One. Still have a power supply Still have psyical media nobody will have super fast unlimited broadband/fibre to give everyone the ability to have a digital only console it MIGHT come with VR headset depends how it does this gen. Even so will probably be a bundle and not set standard.
This is like reading a sci-fi book from the 50s set in what is now present day. Odds are NONE of these predictions will come true.
Who ever wrote this , F**k that guy. VR one is very likely.
Embrace 3D, 4K, VR as standard features and I'll be satisfied. A solid 30fps will do for most games until PS6.
Any site that makes you push next to a new page to show you each section of its points = epic fail.
And i dont want any of these FEATURES, except VR maybe !
I wanted more 3d. Maybe next time. These flat screens no longer cut it...
I really need someone to give me links to a better website. This place has turned into a steaming pile of rumor clickbait garbage. It's nowhere near as good or helpful as it use to be. The "articles" lmao, are worse than the comments in that you do more sifting to find something to even click to try and read.
