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? --- I was yelled at in yahoo checkers for camping. -_-

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 was yelled at in yahoo checkers for camping. -_-

Gears 3, Battlefield 3, Forza 4 look much better than anything on the 360 two years ago.
those games have been in production for 2 years at average.
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games coming out will look anywhere as good as Gears of War 3 or Mass Effect 3, then I would be very happy with those outdated graphics.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 I mean MW3 looks pretty good & it's on a super old outdated engine.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. --- "gone are the days of creativity, and playing japanese games because you secretly wish you were japanese" -CinisterX
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. --- "**** you'll thats all you mofos know how to do iss pick on people cause there typeing **** this site" DarkAssAssIn051
