Why Sony and Microsoft have yet to offer a compelling 'next-generation' experience on their new consoles.
it still early days so i can cut them a lil bit of slack as the developers try to understand the new systems. but we have seen destiny, the order and quantum break which shows promise of whats to come from these consoles. personally to me graphics is not what makes next gen but a part of it as well as innovating and improving the way we game, immersion and story telling to bring about an all rounded package etc
I'm hoping Next Gen Start March 21st. Bring on Infamous!
next gen starts march 21st!
As with all previous console gens, the games will continue to refine and improve over the course of their time. It is quite impressive when you compare a launch title with one at the mid point or even towards the end and yet its the same hardware all the way through.
Since its using an x86 architecture the devs already know how to use it great and dont need time to learn the tricks about it and use the full power at the beggining of the gen.
Visually I think next gen has started. Gameplay, I think that's still up to interpretation. Visually you have Ryse and KZ, even BF. Titanfall is breaking some new ground with gameplay although not 100% new (then again not many games are). I think The Division will be really ground breaking from the video's I've seen.
yeah you have a point. we are not going to see huge leaps in gfx like there was from ps2/gc/xbox to ps3/xbox. the most we going to get is particle effect and textures. i never really get the "this is next gen" or "Haven’t Shown Us The Next Gen yet". when next starts when they sell you the next gen console. thats what it is to me. you buy games for the newer console that not going to be on the older one. soon the old console will be fazed out. its nothing new. you paying to be able to play newer updated games. i hope its some new gameplay element that come, i know it is but its going to be few.
The real next gen multiplayer experience is coming to an Xbox and PC near you very soon.
you mean the same game that's also on 360 and virtually indistinguishable from xb1/pc?
No one has seen 360 footage.
Oh yea, you have screenshots. Please share with the rest of us.
Yes, I think he's talking about the game that isn't available on PS4/PS3.
Yes, that one. That's why I said Xbox, not Xbox One only. It is next gen on PC ad X1. Ultra current gen on 360 :D You assumed I meant resolution-wise? No my dear boy, I'm talking next gen level fun. But by all means, stick to your "pretty but dumb" games!
and 360? :D
I know! Isn't it exciting?! I don't had to wait for August for the Xbox One to launch here to play the most awarded and anticipated multiplayer game of E3 2013, I can play it on my 360! A taste of true next gen on current gen, how sweet is that?! Also, note how my original comment doesn't exclude x360. I said coming to an Xbox near you...not necessarily Xbox One. My Xbox is ready and standing by for TitanFall!
How is Titanfall a "next gen multiplayer experience" when it's also on the 360? If it's possible on last gen hardware, doesn't that kinda disqualify it?
im sure pc gamers have a mech game right now. https://www.youtube.com/wat... but i get what you mean, even tho i didnt see the point. tf looks fun tho
"The real next gen multiplayer experience is coming to an Xbox and PC near you very soon." That means the "next gen multiplayer experience" is pretty much exactly like last gen, except with bad AI thrown in for some reason. Dammit. I was hoping for more advancement. Much more. To me, Destiny looks like the first true next gen game. The Division is up there too.
Ryse and Killzone are a taste, or sample but it will get way better as the gen goes on.
lol misleading title, infamous & the order are next generation games not to talk of what naughty dog has up their sleeves
Not trying to troll, but what is next-gen about Infamous? Graphically it's a beautiful game but so is Killzone.
I was actually thinking the same thing. What the heck is wrong with Killzone all of a sudden? Even IGN ignore it. Strange.
I reckon the order and infamous will show the start of the console life of how the true start of the next generation of the ps4 and beyond that
Infamous second son will show us in 17-18 Days. Cant wait to jump though the city with my Powers and see how Beautiful Seattle in the game is and enjoying every moment in the game. Btw have u guys some favorite snack to eat while playing the game on launch day ?
I dont eat, it takes up to much of my game time
You can pause and eat. Enjoy lol
Pausing is for wimps... Seriously though, I almost never eat while gaming. (I don't get hungry so it's easy for me) and it tends to get the controller greasy/messy
Crisps, chocolate, sweets, microwave snacks and juice, you?
Finally a gamer :D. Candy, chocolate, soft drinks. Meaby not chocolate to get my controller Dirty hehe
Baby wipes are your friend lol
They act as though tha shit supposed to hop off the screen into your living room!..However Ps4 has shown us more than Xbox 1 has !
It's probably time people stopped clubbing together the xbox1 with the ps4 - it's just not in the same class. The PS4 has already shown enough evidence in the games shown so far it's a huge step in terms of graphics, physics, draw distance. In contrast, you might as well stick with the xbox360 considering how little improvement the "next gen" offers with that console.
One can argue that Ryse is the best looking game currently available for both systems. BF looks 10X better on the X1 than the 360 and PS4 version looks slightly better then X1. Not sure you've played the X1 yet. I own an X1 and 360 and they are night and day different, as I'm sure the PS3 to PS4 is.
Pure troll comment.
Next gen does not start March 21st. Infamous looks like a basic action game with nice graphics. Nothing screams next gen about that. And the AI looks basic. All this next gen talk, developers need to start making better AI in there games. It's a shame when games nowadays still can't top Ninja Gaiden and Halo AI, and those games came out two generations ago.
I would say there will be significantly more cross-generation titles then any other transition before; sadly!
Wait! Microsoft tells us everyday the Titanfall is the only next gen offering and it will be the only one....ever! Omg did they lie about that as well?
I'm not an xbox fan but Ryse was an exceptionally well made game and it looked really good. The games will look better in the future though.
I think this gen will be more about the small details
Yes they have you think that it will be miles more amazing get a pc or wait till next gen.
