But this guy does. It's not tangible evidence but the words of developers and publishers prove to be quite revealing. With Epic working on the Unreal 4, things are perhaps closer than we can imagine. And with other developers prepping their engines for the next generation, I think it's safe to say that the 8th generation of gaming may just be right around the corner.

Lol! Xbox Activision will come bundled with COD 6, 7 and 8. At E3 they will show off titles such as COD 9: Revenge of WWII and Super COD Kart.

If MS are looking to make a console that's heavy on the graphics I'd let EPIC and Rare be a big part of the design process.
