It’s always fun speculating about next gen graphics. We really don’t know what to expect, but considering the PC tech has advanced quite ahead compared to the current consoles, it gives a slight hint wrt to the ceiling achievable for graphics.
IMHO, I think next gen console graphics will surpass any of those screenshots shown in this article. People need to stop underestimating the insane rate at which tech evolves.
I don't think so imo. Hard to top Killzone 2 target render haha.
Gamingbolt, don't click.
Yeah totally agree. Although I think Final Fantasy CG is a pretty good prediction. But I suppose that could be wishful thinking.
PS3 already does all of that.
if you want 2 see next gen consoles look at pc sense this year dx12 and new graphics cards are coming out were as next gen console's will have dx10.
So essentially they are assuming CG/pre-rendered footage from this gen consoles will become the new real-time gameplay of next-gen consoles?
I think thats whats always been assumed since the N64/ps1 days
I would say next gen will be a little better than the modded GTA4 screens (because the assets will be professionaly made from the ground up). The KZ2 target render looks horrible lol. As for the last pic, that is what PC games will look like about 3-4 years into the next console gen :P I could make a calculated guess that the nextbox will have about the same graphical capabilities as a 7970, because MS and AMD still seem to be partnered for the console chip design. So yeah, the Samaritan demo is quite close - the best looking games will be that impressive but the more demanding games will look slightly worse. Unfortunately though, things will still mostly be stuck at 30fps because 90% of consumers don't notice/care so if they can make it look nicer by halfing the frame rate then it will always help sales.
It should at least have graphics as Crysis 1/BF3/Metro 2034 at Max Settings running at 60FPS with a variation of AA activated to get rid of those edges and tessellation to get rid of those flat environments with a native resolution of 1080p.
Sorry but not diff between the PS3 and next gen systems
suppose you have a better ps3 then me then.
Eh, not going to get too far past the samaratin demo, tech does upgrade fast but the difference between each Gen is getting smaller and smaller.
"It’s always fun speculating about next gen graphics" No it isn't. Speculation is a waste of time and energy.
I hope next-gen graphics look better than those. 8 out of 10 of them just look like HD-er versions of existing games with less jaggies.
