End of the Week: Another Leap in Technology (Maybe Not Such a Good Idea)

One of the things I've heard people complain about the Wii U is that it will use technology similar to the PS3. As in, old and outdated technology we've seen for almost five years now. Personally, I'm pretty content with what the PS3 can put out and wouldn't mind if that remained the standard for years to come, but many others expect to see much more from Sony and Microsoft's next home console. When the PS3 and Xbox 360 first released, the technology was state-of-the-art, allowing gamers everywhere to see more detailed graphics that could be as realistic or cartoony as the developers wanted the game to be, as well as bigger game worlds, higher quality sounds, and a vast online experience. That, however, came at a cost. Such a sudden leap in technology ended up costing publishers and developers a lot of money, to the point where a failure of a game could close them down forever and it created a much bigger emphasis on selling games that will be guarantee hits rather than experimenting with new ideas. Would another leap in technology really help the industry, or would it do more harm than good?
