NowGamer: Microsoft Game Studios Creative Director Peter Molyneux thinks there's plenty of life left in the Xbox 360, five years after the console's launch...
now lets see something from his camp that Can compare to GEARS OF WAR 3 graphically.
seriously gamings bigest air bag tho ya got ta admit his people do make decent games. that n hes a ms lapdog so take it for what it is...
Well Peter, if you didn't make crap up all the time I might be more inclined to believe you. Is this the truth? Or is this just something you hope is true like with your Fable games?
If it's no where near, then why doesn't he try to use some more of it? Peter makes good games. They'd be even better games if he would just keep his mouth shut. Even the first Fable would have been 10x better if we hadn't had a big box of unfulfilled promises to go along with it.
Yeah, just look what some of them did from under his shadow on the PS3... Edit: Little Big Planet, if scuttlebutt is correct, was not only made Media Molecule, but even begun while they were still a part of Lionhead Studios. And it never hurts to type whole words. Nev-ver...
sry man but can you elaborate sounds interesting wahts the story n wat game did they make on the ps3? ps modz jus took 2 bubs chk my comments n see if u can spot why then gimme a bub if ya think it was biased ta dock me. edit lol ya bad English sry h8 typin more than i hafta n im not that bright... stil many thx for the info thats huge glad we got em hope we get more off the fable team XD
Ummm Mr Molyneux your games fail to reach my status imo.... so if your statement is true please produce something that can....
"You're just going to see some amazing core games, so the future of the 360, I think, is very bright, and continues to evolve as any platorm does. It just doesn't feel like we've reached the limits of the 360 or anywhere near it." He doesn't say if it's about graphics or not. That's something you read into his quote. PS3 fanboys need to downplay the 360's graphics more than what's reasonable because graphics is all they have left to rely on. I'm very much looking forward to the ultimate combo of Fable 3 and Halo: Reach.
Peter.....lmao...don't make yourself look worse than you already do.
Is Peter serious? Is funny how Reach is the 360's biggest game and it's not even that graphically impressive.
Reach is as impressive as any ps3 exclusive that I have played, well from what i've seen of it.
mr cash all respect to bungie but it really is not, the difference between the intro engine and switching to gameplay is painful.
lol @ jack_burt0n. suppose you didnt realise that ALL of Reach's cinematics - including the intro - are 'in-engine' lololololol. thats right, it means they are running on the same graphics engine.
this is actually good news for ps3 gamers... if the 360 is 'Nowhere Near' Limits then the PS3 must be still have 10 years of life left.....
Damn butthurt much?? My bad the 360 has vast more potential for longevity than the PS3 /S
I know man, that's just unbiased common sense. Anyone who disagrees is just ignorant or plain butthurt!
What are you talking about?
Pushing graphics is NOT the only way to push limits. Tons and tons of effects on the screen at one go is another. -End statement
^^^^^ what he said
Peter is a genius and M$ is lucky to have him running the Euro side of things. Of course he's right...nothing is maxed out but I for one would like to see Halo 4 and Gears 4 as launch titles on new hardware on holiday 2012.
I agree with you when I read the artical and then looked at what had been said in the comments just proves alot of people dont read or are to thick to notice what has been said. We all know the 360 is not as powerful as the ps3 when it comes to processing but the dashbored and xbox live are the power house of the 360 and this keeps evolving year by year and with ms now looking to open up the 360 to the none gamers it widens what they can add to live and the dash as well as the games for the 360 this is the reason why they are not going to bring a new 360 out for at lest 3 years. I dont know why people are thinking kinect is a bad move for ms because they will not stop making the games that have made the 360 what it is but they are also making games to get family's involved with the console just like sony are trying to do with move. I think the next 12 months are going to be an exciting time to see how Kinect and move add to out amazing game platforms.
I love Molyneaux, personally. I think his child-like imagination and high ambition are respectable qualities, and he makes good games. Populous was cool, Black & White was awesome (especially the advances it made in AI), and the Fable games are great fun. I don't always like everything he says or does, but I have massive respect for him due to his love of the process of making interactive media and attempts to expand the bounds of the medium.
duct tape... use it on this guy.
You'd need miles of it to shut him up.
Guys, don't bother. There is a world shortage of duct tape. Available supplies were exhausted while unsuccessfully trying to shut up the ps3 trolls that seem to frequent the 360 section, on n4g.
That was actually funny even if you disagreed with me and called me a troll. I actually have a sense of humor so i gave you an agree. But we should modify that joke to "exhausted to shut up the 360 and PS3 trolls" and it would be even funnier. :)
for him every fans of the PS3 is a troll, while Omega4, GreenRingOfLife, Sleipnir, etc. are normal fans/gamers of the 360.
I don't respect Peter Molyneux's opinion on anything because he's never made a game live up to [all] the hype he spouts out of his mouth. like rroded said, he's more talk than substance.
It's not hype, it's the developer's vision of his creation. I truly believe he hasn't accomplished this yet. Just like some movie directors.
Well i think there 360 can do better....It's more like the disk they use it limited it.
But, for some reason, I find it difficult to believe you. ( and by 'you' I mean, you specifically ) I dunno... maybe it's just me.
to be completely fair.. I don't think the 360 has anything left after Gears 3. It's Microsoft fault for going after 3rd party support. There are way to many Halo's out already and it's pretty much milked like Madden and Call of Duty. To be honest, nobody cares for Fable. Gears isn't anything special, it lacks story, in-depth characters and just about everything. It's a hit and miss. It's fun for a month or 2 but after that.. it's never going to be played again. Microsoft lost Mass Effect so.. it sucks to be a 360 gamer. PS3 is the past, present, and future.
thank you for the random nobodys opinion of the day on a no name website. as for noone caring for fable and gears being hit or miss.... you might be at odds with MILLIONS of people man. You should grow up and spend the 199 on the xbox and this way you will own them all and you wont have to hate a piece of technology for NO reason. PS. try going outside man.
He's hating the simple fact that the exclusives aren't up to par and the lack of actual exclusives there are on xbox live. You can't just have all 3rd party support and 3 exclusives each year.
The 360 certainly hasn't reached it's limits because [in my honest opinion] it isn't being pushed as hard. Of course some good games [for those who care about them] coming out such as Halo Reach, Gears, and Fable; but what's next? Mainly everything is 3rd party and just arrives on PS3 as well. I would agree with Peter if Microsoft had an extensive first party list and was churning out exclusives left and right like the PS3 was doing for a while. Then and only then would I say it hasn't reached it's limits. Kind of like the old days of the 360 getting all the games, that was the best moment it's had in my opinion.
wasnt it Remedy's job to 'push it hard' with Alan Wake?
Not sure rarely followed Alan Wake just wasn't interested in the game to be completely honest. Though one game certainly can't test the limits of how far a console can go -- well in terms of churning out one megaton game at least.
And yet there are few examples of devs doing more graphically with the 360 than has already been done.
Is it truly the same if it comes out on PC and PS3? Generally things are down toned on the 360 if it comes out on both. A very good example of this is by taking a look at Final Fantasy XIII. There is another that comes to mind other than the three I mentioned and that Forza 3. Truly this point could be argued every time a game comes out which causes questions to pop up in a buyer's mind. Such as which version to buy [if they own two]. Generally the PS3 and 360 are having trade-offs at this point where one has something the other doesn't have. Just out of curiosity could you list some others aside from the ones I've mentioned? May as well take a look at them perhaps give me a good game to play on the 360 for a while during the winter months.  In a sense I agree with you, but at the same time I'm kind of tilting my head a bit trying to figure out who exactly and what.
@nuri Look at the articles claiming alan wake will redefine whats possible on consoles, seriously people talked like that. And look what happened there, yeah game might be decent but technically its a disaster.
Will have to give it a look then, but not so sure if I'd try it definitely not interested in the game itself :/
didnt know bozo was still alive,cause he clownin lol
Gamers on Molyneux's shit-talking: 'Nowhere Near' Limits.
hes first party, so i take his word with a grain of salt. it is funny to watch on here though, as when someone from a sony-owned company say something like this all the PS3 fanboys say 'he knows what hes talking about, hes right', but when someone from Microsoft/Nintendo say the same about their company they bag them and bust out every insult under the sun. neither console will EVER be maxed. being a software developer myself i know that there is ALWAYS a better way of coding something, and always a better way of optimising everything.
I follow the Atari homebrew scene. It's been 30 years and guys are STILL learning and squeezing more power out of a 2600. Look at Halo 2600, for instance.
If you look at what these people have been saying, there has been a certain correlation with the BS they spout: whether it's building hype, bagging on the competition or downright lying. Molyneux is well-known for over-promising and under-delivering, overhyping things he happens to be excited about and just saying dumb things. Of course developers spin things to their direction, but if there's any BS i've ever seen within this industry, it's mostly come from the MS side. And to your last comment, you may be a developer, but hardware has its limits, and not even the best optimised code can do anything with lacking hardware. That's why when you look at Kinect, it's not anything like the original Natal was shown to be. Why's that? Because MS removed a processing chip - hardware that might have made the technology more versatile.
bioshock 1 was the peak of the 360, nothing has come out since that surpassed it technically, all consoles are maxed out completely, thats why games run at or below 720p. That's why move an kinect are coming out, to grab more market share in a last ditch effort for $$$. xbox720 fall 2011 ps4 fall 2011 wii 2 september 2011
This guy's ramblings are about as credible as Pachter's.
Of course he thinks this! Have you seen Fable 2? That's an ugly game, they could do A LOT better
Anyone who doesen't believe this is a moron or a fanboy. Games always look better and better as the years go by. Developers learn how to make more powerful games for them. It doesen't matter what system it is, whether or not it is exclusive or not because this can apply anything. It just comes down to the developers to harness more power. Games on my 360 certainly are looking better and better and are becoming more powerful. It doesen't matter whether PS3 exclusives look better or not either, because as long as it is improving COMPARED to OTHER games on the system then it is in fact getting better.
360 might not be, but dvd9 certainly is.
God I hate Peter Molyneux. Most delusional studio head EVER.
Well that's peter for you....LMAO
"Welcome to the Xbox 360, you can't do anything" Peter, Shut up! Just shut up! Make your damn game!
Can't he show us something that will blow-us-away? Like KillZone 2 did?
"Molyneux: Xbox 360 'Nowhere Near' Limits" The 360 is not "maxed" yet, sure, but it is not a statement you can do while watching or playing Sir Molyneux' games.
Yea...this is one dude who talks and you can take it to the bank LMAO Peter "the overpromiser and under deliverer, who disses his own game after it stops selling" Molyneux" all true
is it just me or do do I smell bullshi* from a mile away? That peter i tell ya.... lmao hes all talk, cant believe a word he sais anymore unfortunately :\ Oh And just for the record, alot of articles/devs have stated b4 that yes, the 360 has been maxed out in terms of its graphical capabilities, etc... so i read many times b4. ~Shrugs~
