XMNR: Some of the first screenshots and details of Epic Games' Unreal Engine 4 were released on Thursday including how the developer is working with Sony and Microsoft on next-gen consoles
i agree, i want something never before seen.
i hope when next gen comes (ps4) they can keep the price of games at 60 bucks, and not raise it at 70 dollars. Dude, where have you been? pluto, i was on the planet pluto.
Dude, where have you been? Things like DLC and limited editions are looking to make games $80 and more - and game companies are only looking for ways to "get" you to buy DLC. Edit: But its not a planet.
quantum leap? you will have a price that you never before paid. I think epic wants at least a gtx 580 in consoles by 2013-2014.
They need to produce less heat, play 3D games and moves in at least 60 fps. I want them to replace my cable box, play last gen games online still, play pc games via steam. I want to play total war on my ps4 or xbox. Good graphics, ha! I'm with with 720p as long everything runs smooth. I need it to run adroid apps store, pandora connectivity from my phone to the machine like I can with my cell. @raytraceme. Yes, it's all I ever wanted.
So basically you want your console to be a less costly pc???
There needs to be an epic increase despite the price tag, and i can say why. usually few buyers buy a console when its out. most of the time the populous tends to wait for games to come out anyways. It's during that time in a console's lifespan it can be expensive. It's when games start pumping out you'll see the console's price drop. it was the same for blu-ray, it was like $1,000 on its release, but now that its been out for so long and its got tons movies too, its now cheaper. technology needs to be at its best for future enjoyment, and if you can't afford it, just hold on to your ps3 or 360 a little bit longer. :)
Native 1080p support, time to dump 480 and 720. Don't worry about leaving folks out, they will buy hardware to play the games on.
That's all I really want, true 1080p and games running at 60hz. More ram too. Epic should make their own console and spend billions of dollars and try and get consumers to buy it. Let's see how willing they are then about a quantum leap.
The rumor is the PS4 is naive 2160p
438574829602587605643259p or no deal!!!!!!
The "perfect" human eye sees in 2160p. Eagles see at about 5x that, I might add.
"naive" = irony Edit: And I think Iggy agrees with Epic...just sayin'...
I disagree. Start pumping out high-quality titles for less money and in less time and it will be a win-win. Graphics is nice, but it also takes a lot of time to make and a lot of money. Plus it makes the cost of the consoles sky-high.
I agree. I want the games to look better next gen but not in the way Epic wants them to be. It's easy for Epic to make these kind of claims, but at the end of the day, it is Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo that have to cover the manufacturing costs of the hardware needed to run such games.
So you want them to rush games, make them higher quality, AND charge less for them? I think it's time to wake up.
I disagree. They can make high quality games this generation without the need for new consoles. I never get why people always claim they would prefer higher quality games over graphic in a new console. They can work on making better games on the current generation. The whole point of a new generation is to introduce something new or something that can do better than it's predecessor.
Yeah, but if your paying for a new system, it better look new and worth the price of admission.
No. Games need to be a quantum leap in terms of gameplay, but since it didn't happen this gen don't expect it to happen next.
I definately think there needs to be a quantum leap especially since this the longest console lifecycle and PC's are becoming too powerful it's not even funny.
Shok posted a great video on his youtube channel about this. Very informative. Sorry that I posted this video without your permission, but you brought up some very good points. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Epic does seem to be going on a crusade to push next gen hardware makers to meet the needs of their expectations. As of right now they seem frustrated that console makers are delivering under powered specs in their eyes. Have a blessed day and happy gaming. Rated E For Everyone

Care to add more to the topic than that?
For one, Epic's only on one console, so they can't possibly have that many complaints. And given that they likely knew EXACTLY what they were getting themselves into early on in the gen- like, say, when they got the dev kits- they really don't have a right to complain at all. I don't even think they've done all they can do on the one console they're on, so them saying anything about what the next gen should be able to do is something that should be dismissed.
I actually do believe that Epic has pretty much pushed their console of choice to the limit. They have updated their engine plenty of times to meet the needs of the consumer. Gears of War 3 looks to be the most polished, and complete shooter on the platform. So if you read this. What more did you expect out of them this generation graphics and performance wise? If it were not for epic, this generation would have launched with 256mb of ram. I think they did the world a favor by doing what they could to push for powerful consoles. A lot of critically acclaimed games would have suffered greatly if it were not for epic complaining. So I really want to know. What would you like for them to do? If you don't respond, have a blessed day and happy gaming. Rated E For Everyone
I've never seen a console that was completely tapped out before its successor was released, let alone developed. Development of the PS3, for example, was underway well before the last few years of the PS2, which saw some amazing games. And that's the biggest thing: the games only get better as the generation continues. If Epic were to make another game, and put in as much or more effort than they did with their last, do you not think they'd come out with an even better game? While it's true that this current generation is starting to show its limitations, it's only when developers know what all those limitations are that they can get the most out of working within them.
lol the man spoke vague about what the power will be. What does modest mean in a computational view. Epic has their own agenda on what they want so theres no telling whats gonna happen. If epic spent tens of millions estimating what next gen will be only to find Sony/MS wont be there yea they would be disapointed. It hurts their business. Within the normal 5-6 year console life one expects to see a 8 time more powerful leap when next gen rolls around. I think sony and MS will stay true to that only this gen was longer than 5-6 so EPIC was probably expecting 10-12 times more given the extra years. But that wont happen
People need to understand that not everyone is willing to spend a large amount for high specs (unless you can convince people, like Apple did).
I love Scott Bakula.
Wow, apparently people don't like Scott Bakula.
2 hours gameplay+4 hours movie?Only 600 EU/USD? Development time 20-30 hours GAMES?5-10 years?Cool,very cool.... Prometheus better game:D Sad,only 2 hours 30 min,but awesome graphic!
Quantum Leap is such a good show. Was raised on that and Married with Children. Good times. You can still catch the reruns. :)
same here man, absolutely love that show, one of the best shows ever made tbh
If there's even a modicum of truth to any of the recent rumors, then I think it's safe to say that the next gen won't be a quantum leap. Heck, this gen was a bit of an experimental stop-gap of sorts in the first place. Coming into this gen, non of the big three knew whether the standard would be 1080p or 720p. Heck, the 360 didn't even offer HDMI until a later revision. Even now they're still trying to play catch-up in terms of resolution and framerate, all the while trying to meet other exacting standards such as motion control, online gaming, and 3d. If all of those features factor into the next gen, then you can be sure that the coming generation is likely to be what this generation SHOULD have been, as opposed to a quantum leap. Do I want a quantum leap? You bet, and I wouldn't consider myself a game if I didn't. With all things considered; however, I just don't see any of the big companies pulling a rabbit out of the hat and wowing us with their new offerings.
Man, I love that show.
Next-gen will be awesome, trust me, I have seen it! *Wink*
You will still see consoles struggle to maintain high def graphics In the next generation (1080p n beyond). Not that its possible to build a console of such capability but price is a major issue. Console gamers want the hardware as cheap as possible. Sony found that out the hard way with the initial price set of the PS3 ($600). Compromise will be key. I doubt however it will be a huge leap. Thats just the hype train at full steam.
From the article " They need to damn near render Avatar in real time, because I want it and gamers want it—even if they don’t know they want it.” " <-- Dumbass. From avatar's wiki page. " To render Avatar, Weta used a 10,000 sq ft (930 m2) server farm making use of 4,000 Hewlett-Packard servers with 35,000 processor cores running Ubuntu Linux and the Grid Engine cluster manager. The render farm occupies the 193rd to 197th spots in the TOP500 list of the world's most powerful supercomputers. A new texturing and paint software system, called Mari, was developed by The Foundry in cooperation with Weta. Creating the Na'vi characters and the virtual world of Pandora required over a petabyte of digital storage," Maybe in 20-50 years assuming the government doesn't restrict quantum computers(ect) to military, gov and corporate uses. Sorry but epic/Cliffy B, i think is the last developer that should be dictating how powerful the next gens should be. Either talk specifications or stfu already. Most commonly used engine, doesn't always mean the best.
Do people understand that the technical term "quantum leaps" actually refers to submicroscopic transition within atoms, a distance which is almost negligible?
