BioWare co-founder Greg Zeschuk has told VG247 the studio’s not aware of any current plans for new console hardware, and hopes to have more time with current offerings.
new consoles arent needed right now this current gen still has alot of power left
Tons of devs who have yet to come to terms with the current consoles.
With sub-HD second party exclusives on the 360 and an occasional crappy multiplat on the PS3, I would say consoleS.
im looking forward to mass effect 1, and 2, on a single bluray disk. do it bioware! it will save me money so i dont have to buy an xbox.
eh... we need competition whats with you guys wanting exclusives to come to other consoles...
1st party are thetrue exclusives
Can't lie. If Bioware released Mass Effect 1, 2, & 3 on a single blu ray and charged the amount for a 360, I'd buy it.
Which means your gunna have ta work on the PS3 or PC exclusively at some point. "A PC exclusive other than an MMO." Tru dat
Agree, the 360 is just warming up just watch you guys. It still has alot of power left.
Warming the house
I'd like to see Bioware either doing a PC exclusive or a PS3 exclusive. With Mass Effect 2 I've been impressed with what they have done on the 360 with the Unreal Engine, but now I want to see them take more advantage of motion capture and better lyp-synching tech. Edit: A PC exclusive other than an MMO.
The pre rendered cut scenes in ME2 look 10x WORSE than the in game graphics that is straight up 360 butchery. I don't think games necessarily need to be exclusive. But they do need better engines to scale them to each platform. None of this cut and paste B.S. Dead Space 2 Fallout New Vegas Rage Crysis 2 Brink Dragon Age 2 Deus Ex HR The Witcher 2 Multiplats are the majority of my 'to buy' list.
if you have a decent pc, you dont need a 360, just buy it on pc.
my computers trash lol
Mine too! But it does everything but play games, so I'm having a hard time justifying the purchase of an upgrade! Can't even upgrade the hardware because I would have to upgrade everything down to the casing! And I think it has... wait for it... "Integrated graphics" BLAH!!!
4 years isn't enough time for you to take advantage?
I would love to see them try.
so would i,they make some of the best games in the world and if they want more time then dammit give em more time!!!! oh and i forgot my signature trademark.....peace and game on!!
Um,, okay? lol
The only new hardware on the horizon might be a Wii HD, which would probably only be a competitor for the 360 and PS3, in terms of capability. They still have time to up the RPG bar on current gen consoles. It'll be a few years.
it is past time for a new console. It is very sad to see people who love a hobby so much constantly holding it back. We need to be clamouring for new consoles, screaming for them. Are you people not excited to play excellent games running at 60 or more frames at blisteringly crisp 1080p with 8x anti aliasing. Those of us who own all consoles and have a gaming PC (in my case 3 gaming PC's because I am insane) cannot wait to see the consoles catch up to PC (they are not even close right now, and will never be until the next gen of them). 720p is poo 2x anti aliasing is poo Please people, tell me you cannot wait for the xbox 720, I know I can't!!
Huh? Why do you need an Xbox 720 when you have a PC which plays most of the Xboxs' exclusives. Im not trolling here. But why not get a PC and PS3 combination. Then you can play all the multiplatform games aswell as most of the Xbox exclusives on your PC with insane graphics, and the PS3 exclusives on, well, PS3. It's up to you what you do but I thought that it would be common sense to go PC/PS3. More variety of games.
The key word is RECESSION. There will be no new console anytime soon, I'm afraid.
yea release the next generation of consoles...... consoles wont match pcs in terms of spec for ages or in terms of capability for quite some time there more powerful but new consoles arnt needed whats needed its better engines and tools to make the most of it
Most of the 3rd party games looks better on the Xbox360 instead on pS3. This means some thing no ? I mean, the 360 has a lot less cpu power and used 6.8G DVD . If there is a company that needs to asap launch into the market a new console so it will not hold back the PS3 is Microsoft. Just look all the fuzz that Rage game made at E3 and it is a 6.8G game + extra disc just to play it online. Now imagine if that game had instead compacte d 6.8G it had 50G :) Thank GOD Sony makes lots of exclusive games every year bc if we were gonna depend on 3rd party I would have kept my gaming time to stay with my high end PC instead.
Bioware is great, they need to make their games on PS3 already, ME 1 and 2 on one blu ray would be nice and 3 with a simo release
In other words, "we want to take advantage of the current install base before we start fresh again"
Well, if you go by Sony's word of a 10 year lifecycle then they have 5 1/2 years left for PS3. And if you go by how Microsoft claims the Kinect will lengthen the 360's lifespan by another 5 years then they have another 5 years with 360. So i guess they have plenty of time to learn both consoles.
if kinect and move fail, expect new consoles in 2 years and if they succeed expect new consoles in 3 years.
