DICE has said that the company are ready for next generation consoles, including the PlayStation 4, which isn’t a surprise with their shooter Battlefield 3 optimizing next-gen gaming.
I know i'm not.
I need more time to enjoy PS3. It was a healthy investment mind you. And also, I'm currently satisfied with current gen: Uncharted 3, Battlefield 3, MW3, Resistance 3 - I'm good. But thanks.
Lol it's a good thing people like you guys aren't in the industry Boring
You mean like activision and their successful COD franchise?!... ya, good thing people like him isn't in the industry.....
Yeah...I bet gamers were happy with Halo 2, Metriod Prime 2, GTA SanAndreas, Jak 3, GranT4, Pokemon Emerald, and GOW2. Every one of those games has had a more and improved sequel(If Jak 3 didn't end, there would be NO Uncharted). Growth is "mandatory". Can't be complacent. Just my 2 cents. Also, I gotta be honest. This gen sucks. Relax fanboys. I'll explain... Brush aside the annoying patches...and half completed games. I'm merely talking about game libary. I purposfully didn't buy a PS3 until last month. WHY? Cuz the library was WAY to small. It still is. I got my ps2 slim back in 2005. I had a 5 year backlog of awesome games to play. There were some many rich genres to sink your teeth in. You compare the library of Xbox vs the 360, and there's a HUGE difference in size. Everyone's tryin to shooter for that AAA budget title. Meaning they gotta hit millions of copies just to break even. So many dev and publishing co.'s have "died" and the game library's are a clear indication of that. Basically there was just more VARIETY...
you need to have a ps3 in the first place Kon, before you can enjoy it.
Oh SNAP! OT: Since MY ps3 is only going on 3 years old I would like to hold off on the "next gen" consoles personally. Mainly for the fact that I would be waiting a while before I adopted the new systems and I'm sure people would stop developing for the ps3 sooner, rather than later.
by the looks of things dice are ready for the PS5. next gen gaming isnt gonna be a massive boost as ps2 to ps3. its prob gonna turn 720p into 1080p with 50-60fps....i couldnt warrant that spending personally.
im thinking 2013 but they would really get the one up on m$ if they released it in 2012 around the time of wii-u
At least some companies are ready for the future.
Given how far out in front the Frostbite 2 engine for the PC is ahead of the PS3 and Xbox 360, that's not too hard.
AS much as i love to get a PS4 i still haven't gotten full use of my ps3 i'm sure many other people haven't either. @Shoryunken yea i agree.I wonder if Sony will still be supporting the ps2 by the time the ps4 comes out?? @Queasy That's for sure.
God of War II came out in 2007 and PS3 came out 2006. So it looks like they might still support the PS3 (with first parties) even a little after PS4. Besides, they made games for PS2 for a few years after PS3 came out. So I think you'll be pleased by the time PS4 comes out (which will not be within the next 365 days).
There's still some juice left to be squeezed out of the PS3, that's for sure.
An not just the PS3 itself.I been waiting for someone to push the cloud computing and push the PS3 past the systems own limits.In theory you could run frostbite 2 at the highest settings using servers to do the brunt of the work.Of course this would be expensive and require a monthly fee and a very good internet connections. Think Onlive but with a system that can also process data thats local on a disc.
I'm ok with my PS3 for at least another 2 years
i juiced the sh*t out of my ps3 and she stil beggs for more i hav a 2008 80gb motherboard in a launch 60gb case runs like a dream and cnt wait for the rest of this year and next year ps3 is king of games acros all genres
I am fine with them waiting till at the least 2015. So much potential to be tapped in the PS3 still.
Dice you dont give up do you? Like i said before Dont develop for PS3 if you think its outdated STICK TO PC! Im sure Sony wont release PS4 before 2014 so Dice GTFO!
DICE being ready for PS4 only means one thing...AWESOME! I'm so ready for next gen consoles
I know we are all very excited about BF3 and its always interesting to see a dev talk about their game and/or the tech behind it but can we stop "reporting" on every single one of this mans tweets.
By the time Playstation 4 is shown i'm sure we'll all be ready for it. PS3 still has tons of time left
Well maybe DICE could help Sony with building the PS4 to make sure its a power/graphical monster eh? ;) Sorta like Crytek and M$ (though they denied working on nextbox)
I want another 2 maybe 3 years
Hope that PS4 has full DX 11 and 1080p @60fps!
lol DX11? ... you realize MS makes that right? :) PS3 uses a subset of OpenGL .. essentially. (no surprise)
You do realize Sony could use DX11 if they wanted to right.MS can not stop them from buying the rights to use. It will be OpenGL though it is what Sony prefers.
okay. but has anyone in the entire industry ever done that?
Ouch, this is a big problem for Sony.
lets hope not, the more we relay on DX ** the worse off non-windows gaming is. i say let them stick to openGL type of rending, and hopefully developers follow suit and develope openGL versions of their games.
After 2012, I'll be ready for a PS4.
I hope the end of 2012 or the spring of 2013...around tax time would be genius
I'm still enjoying my PS2
I'm up for it...as long as it's not so expensive this time.
I'm ready for the next gen, I'm just waiting for some up start developers to produce a game that pushes consoles to their breaking point. that way we can stop with the untapped potential.
Early next gen adopters will just miss out on the rest of the current gen offerings because every new gen starts off slow so anyways!
The next playstation console won't be out until at least 2014 at the earliest guaranteed!
