360 Magazine: Are we beginning to see the first wave of next-gen games arrive?
Naah. I not wetting my pants yet, so they can't be next-gen.
Yeah, this isn't impressive. I remember the first time I've seen Onimusha for the PS2 before the PS2 was out, I couldn't believe my eyes. Same thing when I've seen Resistance 1 and heavenly sword before the PS3 was out. I couldn't believe that they could pull off graphics like that and physics as well. This looks like an unpolished PS3-Xbox360 game.
Even the developers themselves are saying we won't see that great a graphical leap from this gen to next gen. The hardware isn't the problem - PC's have been able to do amazing things graphically for years, but not every game is a graphical masterpiece. The bottleneck is the developers themselves, and the resources available to them. Even if a system was capable of an Avatar-like game, who on earth would have the time, money and manpower to create a game like that? I'm personally not expecting that much from the next gen. From a graphics standpoint I don't think next gen will deliver that much of a change compared to what we're used to now. Next gen will be more about how we play - motion sensors, DLC, subscription services, things like that. Quite frankly, I'm rather concerned about what's in the works. Already - are you anxious to control your game with a big, Ipad like controller that only one person per system can use like the Wii-U has shown us. I'm not. I don't understand this rush to replace controllers.
I don't know... as a target it seems just a smidge beyond what the current consoles can do. And Battlefield 3 certainly was!
When you have to scale back for consoles, yes.
not actual gameplay footage lol. and it doesnt even look all that great, looks like the shittiest rainbow 6 game yet.
I think the general consesnes is that next gen. consoles aren't going to be much of a graphic leap as we are use too. Personally I'd like to wait until around 2015-2016.
I think we are putting too much into next gen. The earliest we will see wii-u will be 2013. And I do believe thats the years we will see the next xbox also. So we still have 2 years beefier 2 companies will most likely launch their next console. Sony has been awfully quite on this matter. I think what will end up happening for Sony is that both nintendo and Microsoft will launch Sony will look at those consoles a do a little better or at least improve on that. I do believe that this time Sony could be coming out 2 full years behind Microsoft and nintendo but that also means 2 more years of newer tech But if I am a betti man I say Sony will come out in 2014 which is still 1 year after ms and big N. Also a regular xbox is still 300 bucks and a ps3 is 250 so these consoles have to get down to at least 149 if not 99 before we will see newer consoles When I look at games like gears 3 and uncharted 3 and than I hear about how we need new consoles it's just hard to believe. Like last time when the jump was quite big from ps2 to os3 will it be the same from ps3 to ps4? I seriously doubt that. Patcher is an idiot in some people's opinion but one thing he said a few months back was very smart. He said people want next gen but if you actually want the tech to jump than get ready to pay 600-800 bucks if you want actual advancement but he said mist want a next gen and don't want to pay more than 300 bucks so for 300 all you gonna get is a little jump in tec I rather wait a year to actually improve the tech Ms and Sony should rekee their consoles in 2015 and learn from what N does rig with wii-u
I don't think so. The first few minutes looked impressive; but the actual gameplay heavy sections weren't really mind blowing.
Wow, that guy's birthday must suck.
impressive it was, you guys expect way to much only to be dissapointed time and time again
I expect better than this for nextgen
