  1. im sorry but since when did the current gen consoles show that they’re ‘getting old’ when we have seen amazing visuals in games like bf3, crysis 2 and soon to be released games like bioshock infinite, far cry 3, hitman, tomb raider, aliens etc ? if anything i’m looking forward ot the last batch of the current generations releases b/c it will mean dev’s are gonna drain every bit of power out of the engines to produce amazing stuff.

    there is a good chance that most of the early gen3 console games are gonna look really similar to the current gen games b/c studios have to get used to the immense power they have hold of and have to slowly lead into ‘realistic’ and bigger games. simply saying ‘this generations games look s*** give me something new’ is an ignorant comment b/c a true gaming enthusiast will appreciate all games, no matter how pretty they look (it’s what separates the kids from the men) :)

    i really feel sorry for 38 games and big huge b/c they really had potential to blow elder out of the water (i hate that mess with a passion and welcome any RPG that actually has innovation in it with open arms). but just like you said, he didn’t think everything through properly, plus the s*** state didnt cut them any slack :( i hope the team doesn’t stay unemployed for to long b/c they’re really talent folk and i’m sure if given the chance they could show that stupid business planners don’tt equal to a stupid dev team ;)

  2. “I’m glad this year is hopefully the last for Xbox 360 and PS3, because not just their age, but also the age of their products is starting to show.”

    I completely disagree with you. You seem to think that next-gen consoles will bring new gameplay. That’s not it at all. Next-gen consoles will mainly bring better graphics. With current technology, there’s not a whole devs can’t do with new consoles that they can’t already do with current-gen consoles, graphics aside. I’m totally fine with today’s graphics. Sure, better graphics would be nice, but I don’t want to shell out $700 for them. My point is, devs can innovate just as much now as they will be able to with next-gen consoles.

    • exactly what i said, visuals dont mean anything if the game itself is just the same bs as the game before it. there has been a massive decline in innovation in recent years, heck i would go so far as to say this whole generation (console wise) has been pretty boring, the original xbox and ps2 where the days of new and innovative gaming, now all we get are sequels and prequels to popular names (similar to movies in fact). visuals and sound dont mean jack unless the game is different (at least to those of us look beyond said features).

  3. I would give anything if a console version of the infinity blade games was announced at E3. Perhaps one that utalizes kinect?!
