CC: It seems that Rainbow Studios (subsidiary of THQ) are working on some titles for next-generation consoles.
Interesting. Sony and MS must be planning stuff for the PS4 and 720.
I'd better start saving :)
Sounds moreless like they are looking for a company guy to stick around for awhile. adding next gen just kinda reinforces that the job will be around and will have longevity too it.
Wii HD or Microsoft Xbox Natal ...
I wonder what the graphics will be like next gen. TOo realistic?
Can they work on next-gen consoles when they don't even exist XD.
The three companies can give fairly accurate specs on them by now I am sure to anyone interested in developing. I doubt dev kits will be ready until late 2010 or sometime 2011 though.
They should just focus on this gen first..
Yeah, considering all they have released this gen is a series of half backed MX vs ATV games...(that last one is ugly, really).
they just have scripts and story lines written down along with ideas I'm guessing
I thought Rainbow Six in Next Gen. I loved Vegas, and I hope their quality continues on to the next gen. I can't believe we already talking about next gen though. >_>
Technology is advancing so fast, that one can only imagine how powerful the next gen would be. With the GPU/CPU Hybrids, Bigger Memory, SSD, motion control(natal/wand), 3D TV sets, faster internet connections, blu-ray capacity. Everything is looking good for the next gen, especially in 3-5 years to go, when prices of those high techs will drop.
well.. considering that a console lifespan is 4-5 years. Yes do your homework; I am talking about the life span of consoles since the Atari. The xbox 360 will be 5 years in 2010. the PS3 is going to be 4 years in 2010. The PS1 was release in NA in September 9, 1995. The PS2 was release in NA in October 26, 2000. The PS3 was release in NA in November 17, 2006 a year later than anticipated do to production problems. Do you see a pattern? The only reason why we may get an extra year is going to be because of the economy but... I find hilarious when they think they know what they are talking about when the history of console say otherwise. Maybe Sony will have a hard time making another console within 5 years this time; because they spent so much money on the PS3 with the blu-ray ordeal. But Microsoft do not need to wait on the next generation. Since the xbox 360 is still doing well.. I can see how they will continue to support it; but making another console that gives us some DirectX 11-12 power; is more than welcome after 5 year.... Sony leg humpers can continue using their Last Gen PS3 for another 5 years if they want t0, but when PC games start making console games feel obsolete as it's happening now; it's time for a new console.
You do realize if MS wants to jump ship to the next gen there going to need a bigger size dvd..cough blu ray cough. which royalties will be payed to sony since its thier technology. And as for PC games making consoles feel obsolete the only PC game right now that has amazing graphics is crisis. Also you act like the ps3 isnt doing good either, which i may remind is outselling the 360 worldwide since the slim. So take your fanboyism and shove it thanks.
