Are signs pointing to the next gen? What do you think?
I really hope Sony/MS take advantage of the 22nm CPU/28nm GPU transition. Get some of that new tech in there!!!
It's coming Holiday 2012 or sooner 100% for sure. Wii U April 2012 NextBox Oct.-Nov. 2012 PS4 Oct. 2012- Mar. 2013 That's the truth!
Welcome back to the present time traveller!
Well I hope so, nothings better than the 1st time when I get to open the box of a brand new next gen console. vvvvv lol, @ Bathyj
Wii U November 2012 XBox 720 Summer 2013 PS4 November 2013 or Febuary 2014 This seems more likely than anything.
Hey cool, you have a DeLorean aswell!
No, they are actually unresearching technology and forgetting R&D they have already done? What kind of question is that, of course were getting closer, by virtue of the fact we're not getting further away.
Yea, but usually the signs are a bit clearer than they are right now. It's late in the life cycle and we've heard rumors and a lot of developers saying we don't need them. Now all of a sudden developers are changing their minds as they put out their latest games. They could be a few years off or they could come out next year. Nobody really knows?
Lol Common sense for the win. No Sh*t we are getting closer.
A disagree? Apparently someone is traveling the wrong way through time as unlike the rest of they aren't getting closer to the next gen :)
We'll find out at the next E3 I bet.
i could care less. im loving the games out now.
I really don't see a new xbox or ps4 anytime soon. Unless somehow the world economy recovers in the next year or two, it would be bad business to release a new console, given they don't go the way of the wii, with lower specs. Who can really afford to spend money on a new console right now. Given the fact that developers are trying to find new ways to push 5yr old tech as they are, we are stuck. I predict ps4 and nextbox no sooner than 2014, and prob around 2015. The wii u is 5 yr old tech under the hood as well.
1. The Wii-U is not five year old tech. 2. Economy has nothing to do with affordability because $500 tablets and other things are on the rise, tech doesn't slow down for a recession. 3. If the new tech didn't come out till 2015 then by then tablets will be stronger than them.
No a recession doesn't stop tech, I agree. However we are talking about a global recession that has not been seen since WWII. Tablets can play games but are not "game consoles". Pc's are constantly moving forward, tablets just being the next evo of pc. Sure ps3 is more than just a console but they lost hand over fist trying to do that. They will not make same mistake twice. That's why wii u isnt a huge leap from current ps3 or xbox. That's what I meant by the 5 yr old tech. Notice they are relying on a new a controller not bleeding edge graphics. MS will milk kinect for a while and Sony still has some horse power left. I'm probably wrong but hey it's fun to pretend like we actually know stuff like Pachter lol.
of course we are getting closer, as time goes on are we going to get further?
Please don't rush the 720 with dodgy design decisions like the 360. Even the 360S has a flaw. You can still tip it over to scratch the discs.
I think MS has learned from the 360. The 360S had fixed a lot of the problems such as overheating, RROD, etc... But of course, the disc scratching is still the biggest problem. Hopefully MS sorts that out next-gen.
The WII U say HI (powerfull than any PC)
Dude, you are so bad at trolling. You are never funny.
FTA: "I don't think BF3 needs a high resolution pack to look pretty, it already looks good." Truly, speak for yourself. I welcome any additional enhancement I can get on my console of choice.
If we're getting further from the new consoles... Than there is a rip in the space time continuum.
i just want to see graphics as good as the arkham city reveal trailer. batman looked so realistic
I think the problem and the constant rush for new consoles is the demands for graphics. I for one enjoy watching developers work hard on these consoles and all give it one final effort before next gen, because if they rush to make a new console it will outdated in no time. In the next gen I want to see more user generated console, obviously better graphics, framerate, AI.
Are we getting closer to next gen consoles? NO F***ING DUH! WE GET CLOSER EVERY DAY. Why is this news? How did this get approved?
"Are we getting closer to next gen consoles?" No, time is going in reverse.
So if ever MS/sony rwill release the successor of 360/ps3, what do you think will be the price?.. Of course it has newer cpu/gpu, I suspect that it will not be cheap, especially if they use Hexacore/magny-cores (6-12 cores) plus higher gpus
I think current generation still have a good 1-2 years left. The ideal situation is to have a similiar gameplan as current blu ray strategy by including a dvd version in the same package. Release a game that will work on both current generation and next gen in a same package. That should allow maximum profit due to current install base and entice them to upgrade to newer and more powerful hardwares in the near distance future. I say why not release new consoles ASAP.
Closer? Impossible. We're getting further away.
We are also getting closer to flying cars and the apocalypse.
No, we are getting farther away...stupid title.
