I honestly feel Graphics have hit their peak.

Examples on games showing what the future consoles will get:

Crysis 1/Warhead

In my opinion, that games looks far better then most games today

Battlefield 3

Yet another game looking really nice

The Witcher 2

A game that I think looks far better than ANY game available on PC today. The lightning, the textures, the 3D-models, the way hair looks and moves in the wind. Outstanding art there.
The whole games looks beautiful.


lol the Witcher 2 came out on PC months, if not years before coming out on consoles.

It also looks miles better on PC too.


What I meant was those games I mentioned will be what we will get used to on future consoles. Most of the games I mentioned there is games I play on PC, and the reason why I even mentioned those games. :) The next thing with quality graphics will probably be something called voxel. Google it if you do not know what it is.

Watch this as an example of voxel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=km0DpZUgvbg


Yeah, that's what I've been thinking too. Even if next-gen consoles blow the Wii U away, their limit is not going to exceed the best of what PC can do today. And most of those graphical differences will be taxing but most importantly, scalable.

And if the Wii U has a high enough userbase, it might be worth 3rd parties' money to port a game designed for the PS4 and Nextbox. And that effort might be seen worth it in my eyes if they focus on the strengths of the Wii u (the tablet controller) and make it into a unique experience.

I thought the same thing during the SNES days. And....yea. It constantly exceeds my expectations.

Graphics hit their peak in 2006. As a matter of fact, I can name the exact game where they hit their peak: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SL3EuzaDgpQ

After this, improving graphics was nothing but a waste of time which distracted from improving gameplay.

Gaming on PC's is lame. Seriously, who the heck wants to push keyboard buttons to attack, fire, or shoot. It's all about controllers baby! Screw the PC.


someone got his head stuck in his console disk tray way too long. Only lame thing we can see around is that dumb statement of yours.
Wireless controllers are supported since a while for many games (ie the same games you play on your beloved console).


psshh, dumb console elitists...

I'd like to see a console pull some of these forest shots.


I'd like to play that version of skyrim :)

Games that look like that probably won't be playable until 2025, and even then PC's only, consoles won't quite be there yet.


sorry to tear down the "myth" but 2025...I mean...you're joking right?
These screenshots come from people who play the game right like that.

I suggest you too take a look at those crazy gta4 mods, the one with ultra realistic modes. And no, they won't be available in 2025 either...

The problem with this, is to get decent console hardware, and the wiiu proves we aren't there yet, because of cost.
Brands like Sony, MS or Nint, will cut cost as much as they can so they can milk the consumer. None of them will go for releasing a $800 console.


But people are so misinformed they will take every word from these 3 as granted...sadly...

While I think that the idea that graphics have reached their peak is ludicrous, I do think that we are starting to reach the point where the amount of time and money needed to create games with super-HD graphics just isn't worth it.

Until normal gameplay looks as good as the cutscenes in WoW, there's room for improvement.

If you're not playing on a PC, you haven't seen the best there is to offer. The graphics cap isn't even up for discussion when it comes to consoles.

Let alone a Nintendo one.
