NES -> SNES -> N64 -> GameCube
PS1 -> PS2 -> PS3
Xbox -> Xbox 360
Gameboy -> GBA
Sega Genesis -> Dreamcast

If you grew up with these systems, you would expect next gen consoles to have better graphics, no?
R.I.P Team Fortress 2 updates on the Xbox 360.

Because this graphical update, if used properly, can actually enhance the gameplay possibilities.

I'm referring to the 3D, of course.

If graphics weren't important, then we would all still be playing NES games.
CAPCOM needs to make a third Capcom Classics Collection (Include Super Street Fighter II), Mega Man: Powered Up 2 & Mega Man: Powered Up 3 for the PSP!

Maybe gameplay > graphics, but having amazing graphics can certainly add to the gameplay experience. And truthfully, when you're trying to make fully immersive 3D games (especially with a handheld like this, which is going to be stereoscopic), you need to have the horsepower to back it up. Consoles like the Nintendo 64/DS handle 3D graphics adequately, but the end result is blocky, jagged, and the frame rate isn't always what it should be. In my opinion, the PSP is about where you reach a point where the hardware is no longer a limitation on 3D gameplay. It's just the point where everything becomes aesthetically pleasing enough to not be distracting.

For comparison, I think the same thing about the SNES when it comes to 2D gameplay.

Well better graphics means a more powerful system, which leaves potential for better physics/gameplay mechanics, more characters on screen, etc which could enhance the gameplay

Really, gameplay > graphics.


People only say that when the Nintendo console in question is less powerful, in this case since its superior everyone is going to be obsessed with graphics.

It won't be superior. Once the PSP 2 is shown, it will be back to "Gameplay is what matters". And I can't wait for that.
