It's widely believed that the Next gen Xbox wont be out until 2014 at the latest correct?

Not trying to sound bitter but I worry people will complain that they want game x to use a new engine (cod) which would be pointless especially since the console (Xbox 360) is maxed and dated from at least 2 years ago.

I just think things will get worse from here on out as people want more, but expect this console to pull it off.

Seriously. This console isn't a miracle machine by any means of the imagination.

All games from a year ago till 2014 will look the same.

it's getting bad.

Agree?

360 wasn't maxed "at least 2 years ago."

Gears 3, Battlefield 3, Forza 4 look much better than anything on the 360 two years ago.

mmhmm, and you think they immediately had the graphical fidelity that they did upon release right when they started working on them 2 years ago?

graphical fidelity didn't come immediately it took a while (2 years) for it to reach the point of where it's at now.
It's not like it's going to get better in the next 2-3 years on this console.

I didn't know the TC worked for Microsoft and knew what else the 360 is capable of.

Please fill us in on more information.

If in the next 2 years, games coming out will look anywhere as good as Gears of War 3 or Mass Effect 3, then I would be very happy with those outdated graphics.
The fact that there has been no other game to utilize L.A. Noire technology so far & so few games that used the older built Euphoria engine proves that there are a lot of possibilities for amazing graphics in the next 2 years.
Also Forza 4 didn't even use the same tech as PGR, which had much more detailed environments.

Also a lot of that is engine updates. A developer won't have to do a 2-4 year cycle to get a game to look good as Gear 3 when Epic did all the work for them.
I mean MW3 looks pretty good & it's on a super old outdated engine. If Activision makes a brand new engine for the next game, it can look amazing.

I might point out that the upcoming Tomb Raider & Hitman games look amazing & even better than what's even now.

So games are not coming to a standstill in graphics in the foreseeable future on consoles.

If you want to be a PC gamer, then go do it. 360 games look fine, and they will look fine 2 years from now. Hell, Genesis games still look great to me.

I think, in general, console games aren't meant to sport cutting edge graphics and the latest engines. If anything, consoles are trying too hard to be PCs.
