Developers can't even get the most current games at 1080p at 30FPS let alone 60FPS.
I'm sick of so many games being 720p and not even being 60FPS. These weak developers will never reach a benchmark because they keep doing the same weak coding game after game.
Even Namco Bandai doesn't get their fighting games to 720p native in a lot of cases and that is sad.
1080p 60FPS should be standard yet we won't even see it next-gen which is pathetic. I want a ton of RAM regardless of whether it's used or not, because if they can't make games in 1080p they at least need to use high-res textures to compensate,
4000p won't even be common for at least 10 years.
I understand your skepticism but I really don't think that 1080p60 is beyond reach for next generation. Granted, games may start next gen at 1080p30 but I am willing to bet that the 60fps performance benchmark is attainable.
It is attainable with a talented developer that knows how to code. The problem is that a lot of these game companies don't want to learn new technology or they want everything simple so they don't have to put in the effort. Very few developers have the talent to accomplish 1080p/60FPS.
You have systems like the Wii U where the lazy developers will go and if they were tasked with making a game on the next Sony or MS system you're not going to get much better results from them. The industry has become complacent in laziness and this is why there are so few big name companies making blockbuster games and the rest are run of the mill.
It isn't wholly at fault of the developer. The PUBLISHER puts stupid time restrictions on the developers.
A year sometimes. And with the insane focus on graphics, you eat up most of your budget and time with how the game looks, and the scraps go to the gameplay.
You see what proper time allows developers to do with exclusives. What proper planning and allowments give.
4K might be coming for gaming. But its not going to be the industry standard for TV's, an the reason it is not is simple : most TV providers are not using a system capable of providing a 4K signal, so the *only* impetus towards 4K would be from consoles.
If people can't get a 4K signal from their TV service, they're not going to care that one or two games is going to be providing that signal. Obviously, some individuals will, but those would be the exception, not the rule.
