NowGamer: Next-gen only way to improve gaming says BF3 producer.
Rage certainly has an 'end of generation' feel to it, much in the same way Quake 2 on PSone and Shadow of the Colossus had on PS2. Surely we'll see a new Xbox next year.
"Rage certainly has an 'end of generation' feel to it" You mean the one where it feels like they overreached and came up short! Haven't played the game myself, but heard lots of complaints about technical problems like extreme texture pop-in! There are lots of games releasing and I can play them, but it does feel like this gen is reaching its ceiling! Especially when next-gen seems to have so much potential; they can pack ridiculous gigs of RAM into a console now for almost nothing in costs!
@ Da Truth "they can pack ridiculous gigs of RAM into a console now for almost nothing in costs!" While that may be more true today than its ever been, it was also true back in 2005/2006 when these systems came out. They both could have at least have packed in a gig. Seeing as how RAM is the biggest limiting factor they have today on these consoles, i sincerely hope we do not see them make the same mistake again.
There will be at least 2 GB of RAM for next generation machines. Maybe 4 GB as 6-8 will become the PC norm in a short while. First PC games with 4 GB RAM recommended are hitting shelves this year. There are so many clues around next Xbox being revealed at E3 2012. Ps4 possibly as well. Nintendo U is already signed on to show up.
No love for Crysis?
crysis 1 and crysis 2 are good games on consoles, but you play them on pc if you want amazing graphics
The same could also be said for BF3 and Rage, but even so, they all look awesome on consoles as well.
@Forbidden_Darkness Is that so? http://www.gamefront.com/ra...
"Above and beyond the call" Thats a nice way to get someone's attention. But what does it matter anyway... http://n4g.com/news/861752/...
Rage has been maxed out at 60fps. The game proves it. And it has the most polished racing i have ever seen at 60fps. idtech 5 proves its superior in every way just by playing this game. Rage is technical achievement on consoles. PC has more to come with updates.
I don't get why someone disagreed with that. Even at 30 fps it would still be the best looking FPS on consoles to date. Running at 60 fps just solidifies id's position as leaders when it comes to graphics. It also adds to delivering extremely responsive and tight controls.
I totally disagree with rage being the best looking game on console. Maybe the best looking game on console that runs at 60 fps. But there's not many shooters that does that, besides call of duty. To me the best looking multiplatform shooters on consoles in order are. (I'm counting single player only.) Crysis Crysis 2 Battlefield 3 Rage
You are a big id fanboy. You cannot accept that id messed up big time. They did not even come close to the best at 60fps and it is not even close to the best at 30fps. Best graphics for a multiplatform game at 30fps is probably crysis 2 or BF3. The best graphics for a 60fps multi-plat game is probably none other than call of duty(none of treyarchs games).
In terms of graphics, maybe. In terms of originality and innovation? Definitely not.
I dont know why you got disagrees with that mate... You are completely right. From my own personal experince ( http://www.allagegaming.com... as well as almost all reviews I have read, the general consensus is that Rage has a sever lack of innovation and originality. Although, it is one of the best looking game ive seen on any console. id always push the envelope in terms of graphics. Now where is that bloody Doom 4 announcment!
If the visuals of Crysis, Rage, Battlefield, Uncharted, Resistance(yes its that good) are the pinnacle of this generation of consoles, then I say I'm happy with that. Just improve gameplay and story. I don't need better visuals than what's being put on my plate. I can go through 2012 with these visuals and maybe even 2013 but I really think they'll announce the next gen early 2013 and release it Christmas 2013.
I spend more gaming hours on my Amiga than any current systems. Games have to seduce me, not bore.
amiga rocks, project x, lotus esprit, supercars 1 and 2, hostages. good times
Keep pushing next gen graphics while farmville and angry birds takes over. Smart.
MORE MEMORY TO THE PEOPLE
I thought BF3 looked worse than a lot of other games on consoles. Rage looks incredible but not BF3 on consoles.
Show me proof. don't say the beta version. It wasn't even maxed out on PC.
Agree! I buy Rage(console).....awesome visuals,and cool game. BF3 console?? This not beta(ps3 version): http://www.youtube.com/watc... Awesome visuals?I think no.........too much hype! This gen(console)best visuals: Uncharted 3. Gears 3. Rage. Crysis 2. God of War. Killzone 2-3. Skyrim? But BF3 console?-----------NO--------- -100%.
I think UC3, GeOW 3, Crysis 1&2, Resistance 3, RAGE & BF3 all show that this gen has pretty much come to a close. Next year will just be about squeezing out as much juice as you can.
But im happy with the graphics now. Now they should improve on gameplay and the overall fun factor since both dont require alot of hardware power. Remember, graphics are not fun.
Stop with the GeOW it looks retarded lol. Its Gears 3. Get with the times son.
I know it looks retarded but I've had a habit of typing it like that since the old fanboy wars in the OpneZone. Everyone had the habit of typing 'GOW' but it caused a lot of confusion with the God of War franchise so then we came up with GeOW. No one at the time would refer to Gears of War as just 'Gears' and saying the full title felt more natural than shortening it down which is why no one ever thought of typing it out like you just did. But yeah we should all be writing 'Gears 3' for short.
I hope this dev is referring to multi platform titles, cause I can name a few ps3 first party titles BF3 & Rage can't touch.
you mean those games that don't sell and nobody plays anymore? only dumbass ps3drones like you care about visuals and nothing else. ever hear of gameplay, controls, community? I guess not with games like killzone at the top of your list LOL.
Rage is the best looking game in a console today
How dare you say that a ps3 exclusive is not the best looking game on consoles on n4g ? are you insane ?LOL I'd say its between crysis 1 remake and RAGE but considering the fact that RAGE runs at 60fps I'll give it to the 360 version of rage( it has much less texture pop-ins than the ps3 version as well as much lower load times even with no HDD install) in all its the best of the console versions. http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
On console yes On PC, definetely not
Who cares about gfx when the real MEAT of BF3 is in the PC-only ability to play on 64-player MP maps. THAT (64p MP) is what is lacking on the console version of BF3 (not the gfx, although gfx is nice eye-candy) And yes, for 64p BF whe need new consoles. Guess the wait is till BF4 on Xbox 720 in 2013-14 (or something like that)
