the next generation looks wow...i just hope for one microtransactions and we still get physical games!

DarkOcelet918d ago

How does it looks wow when its not out yet :D ?

I agree with the second part of your comment though :)

@ DarkOcelet

Maybe joyride is Doge in disguise. He revealed himself by using "wow".

We'll still have physical games because there's demand for it. Simple business says if there's demand for a product it will be offered, and there are still tons of people who buy physical games.

Want proof? Look at music CDs. For the past 10 years people have been saying CDs are dead, but that isn't true. Go to any walmart (or your regional equivalent), and you'll still see tons of recent CDs. There's still a market for physical CDs so companies sell them. Games are the same.

I even still buy vinyls to this day! There will be a market for physical media of all types for many years to come. It's great to have options.

One of the reasons they named the Xbox 360, Xbox 360 was because they didn't want it to seem inferior to the PS3 by calling it Xbox 2.

Scumbag don mattrick: We should call the next Xbox, Xbox One.
Xbox Employee: But sir we could name it Xbox Infinity or 8.
Scumbag don Mattrick: I want it to be Xbox One...
Xbox Employee: Sir.. Xbox One sounds like we're just starting, what about just Xbox 3?..
Scumbag Don Mattrick: Xbox...One.

360° is a REVOLUTION.
"One" is all your entertainment needs in ONE place, the Win10 ecosystem.

Apparently all Sony can do is count. A 2 year old can do that. Oh, they plagerized the Spider-man movies' font too, which was also very creative, lol.

joyride91917d ago

good catch...microtransactions are a menace to gaming...and hopefully we get the entire game on disc.

Bhuahahaha917d ago (Edited 917d ago )

i was thinking sony and ms should abandon disk base media instead go for a flash memory/cartridge like media(like in vita and 3ds), and patch dlc can be directly written to disk space and you dont need to re download all patch/ dlc

Then we could have extra hardware on chip again like the SNES did with "Mode 7".

Mystogan917d ago

What if it's completely backwards compatible? I don't see a problem with it if they made a new one in 2017 if that's the case.

crazychris4124917d ago

Wouldnt even think about the next gen consoles for another 4 or 5 years. Generations usually last 7-8 years and were only in year 2. Hopefully we see games running at 4k which will be mainstream by then and hell of a lot cheaper. Would like to see most games run 60 fps but Im sure some games will go for 30.

SaveFerris917d ago

I wonder if Sony will make VR part of the console, and if Xbox will have Kinect 3?

crazychris4124917d ago

No idea, nobody has even officially released consumer
VR kits yet so its impossible to predict something 5 years from now.

Mystogan917d ago

I wouldn't mind buying a new Xbox in 2017 if it's completely backwards compatible.

Actually the average console generation is 4-6 years. The 360/PS3 generation was extra long. We're not in year 2, we're in year THREE...2013,2014,2015.

4k isn't expensive. You can get 4k/60 tv's for under $500, you can get 4k/30 for under $300. I've seen them for as low as $269, and they went under $300 well over a year ago. (and we're talking 39" or bigger)

A GTX 970 that cost $329-349 and came out a YEAR ago can run many games at 4k/60. Most of the same games on PS4/XB1 can be run at 4k/60 easily.

Here's an example just from what I have on Steam (and not counting really old or non-graphic intensive games)

Most of these are at max, or near max settings.

Mad Max
Alien: Isolation
Borderlands 2
Dark Souls 2
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Elder Scrolls: Skyrim
Fallout: New Vegas (don't have Fallout 3 loaded, but I bet it can)
Metro: Last Light
Mortal Kombat X
Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit
Sleeping Dogs
Tomb Raider
Wolfenstein: The new order
Bioshock: Infinite

I haven't even tried out a ton of other games yet at 4k/60 since I just got my Vizio 4k/60 last week, nor many on my Uplay or Origin accounts. I'm sure I can get games such as Battlefield 4, PvZ: Garden Warfare, The Witcher 3, Titanfall, Far Cry 4, etc, etc.

We've seen the reports that even a GTX 970 can do MGSV:TPP at 4k/60 with decent settings.

In other words, it's not hard to game at 4k, but somehow people mistakenly think it is. Right now it's quite easy to get 4k on PC, and it doesn't need to cost an arm and a leg.

It really isn't expensive unless you think 4ktv's need to cost $2-3k, which you don't. You don't need a top of the line GPU, nor two-three-four of them. A single GTX 970 can do the job sufficiently.

Now, with the double node jump coming, gaming at 4k will be easily done on a $150 graphics card soon.

This simply isn't up for debate... these are all irrefutable facts.

Now when it comes to what will be out in 2018...2019...2020... well yeah, we're talking probably another node further beyond this upcoming one.

Hell next year a 5 year old PC with an i5 or i7 in it will be able to easily game 4k/60 with a $150-200 upgrade to the videocard.

Old cheap video card = 4k/60 by late 2016, unless they push off the new node into 2017.

People are still spending tons of money on 1080p sets. There are a ton of people buying 1080p sets that are more expensive then 4k sets.

4ktv's and videocards that are capable of running 4k simply aren't as expensive as many believe... time for people to figure this fact out.

Oh and if anyone was wondering what I just paid for my recent 4k/60, I found a last year's model Vizio P series 55" 4k/60 (and 1080p/120) for $799. (my $299 seiki 4k/30 39" I bought last year popped a capacitor and the squaretrade warranty is reimbursing me for the Seiki 4k.)
