Take it to 3 and a half decades and it gets completely insane. These are the specs for video output for the 2600, which came out 36 years ago and was manufactured until 1991 (?!?):

Output: Line-by-line (Registers must be updated each scanline)
Resolution: 160x192 pixels (NTSC 60Hz), 160x228 pixels (PAL 50Hz)
Playfield: 40 dots horizontal resolution (rows of 4 pixels per dot)
Colors: 4 colors at once (one color per object)
Palette: 128 colors (NTSC), 104 colors (PAL), 8 colors (SECAM)
Sprites: 2 sprites of 8pix width, 3 sprites of 1pix width

The close-ups make it way more obvious how much worse the xbox one's graphics are compared to the ps4's. These youtube videos just cant show enough detail for a useful comparison. The AC and CoD shots especially.

Forza looks almost identical to the 360 Forza.
3770K @ 4.5ghz| GTX Titan @ 1300/6500 | Asus Maximus V Formula | Asus PB278Q 2560x1440 | Windows 8.1 | PS4 | Atari 2600

The tracks, yes, the cars, no. And the 360's processor couldn't even think of pushing the physics FM5 is.

I saw Ryse cutscene+gameplay compilation from youtube, it feels like I'm watching a AAA hollywood blockbuster.. graphic wise it was jaw dropping.
Android phones + Vita = happy face

Sounds like me man. I'm mostly a 90's gamer. My timeline went like this:

Sega Genesis > SNES > Gameboy > PS1 > N64 > Gameboy Color > PS2 > Gameboy Advance > Xbox > PSP > DS series > Xbox 360 > PS3 > 3DS XL > PS4.

Years from now when we reflect on the early gaming generations, we could say "I was there."

you can knock ryse for all its faults, but the fact that a rushed launch game looks that good only speaks good things for PS4 and X1
