Cross-gen games are holding back next-gen!

All these cross-gen games are starting to annoy me. This article agrees http://www.gamerheadlines.com/2014/07/for-xbox-one-and-ps4-to-thrive-developers-need-to-let-last-gen-go/

I like the analogy they used with the zombies:

Think of running away from a pack of zombies in a group. Assuming you arenít the type of person to abandon your friends in a tight situation, youíd slow down to help those slower than you. If everyone in the group adheres to the same logic, then the group itself is only as fast as its slowest runner. Games that operate cross-gen work the same way Ė the improved hardware in the Xbox One and PS4 lies somewhat dormant because they have to slow down for the Xbox 360 and PS3 to keep up.

I was very hype for Destiny, but on principle, I'm not gonna buy it now. I don't wanna support cross-gen anymore. They really need to stop it. I was hype for The Evil Within too, but I'm not buying that either now. I'm done supporting cross-gen.

Yeah well there's like 12 million current gen users. If just 10% of old gen still use them that makes 16 millions alone.

Take a look at Battlefield 4. The game itself is quite visually impressive, but no doubt hindered by the fact that DICE rushed to release it across multiple generations. An example in this difference is that the Xbox 360 and PS3 player limits cap at 32, whilst the Xbox One and PS4 allow for 64. Exclusive titles such as Infamous: Second Son, however, look and play amazingly simply because the developers donít have to sacrifice elements of the advanced hardware (compared to the PS3)

So that's why we aren't seeing many 1080p games?

Gamers: "Hey, industry, why won't you spend more to create more graphically, physically, geometrically, AI intense games on the platform with a smaller market and more discerning consumers? You're being so unreasonable."

We are still in the middle of the first year of both the Ps4 and Xbox One. Expect this to be a "problem" for another 12-18 months.

Destiny is an upcoming current gen game, not next gen.
