    So does everyone still think the ps4 is going to blow away the wiiu? Aside from that capcom game the real they show pretty much looked next gen, and alot of people on the net have noticed this as well. When someone on a forum mentioned some of the titles look current gen which they do the sony fans got upset and tried to defend if, but at least now they knows how it feels at least.

    Speaking of potential, this thread has a lot of it.

    Not positive potential, but potential.

    I think its going to happen wether you like it or not guildy , its inevitable , all i can say about the PS4 is that it didnt blow me away , the share thing is a gimmick at best . The only exciting thing i saw was the streaming prospects from cloud gaming. All the dumb numbers people throw around dont mean fek all till the devs put them through their paces and i cant see it happening at launch , just like the MEH wiiu ports were seeing currently.

    But dev's have already said that theres very little they can do now in terms of graphics, it will never make big jumps anymore. Most of what they're able to do would be refinement such as sparks, additional wrinkles on skin more or less just bring more detail to the graphic already available.

    But then again who knows what we'll see when dev's get used to programming for the system

    all sony systems always have the best games. ps4 has the chance to destroy wii u to pieces, bruh.

    look at ps2 lineup, has the best lineup for a console ever. ps1 brought you them classics. ps3 has the best exclusives for its generation. the last of us and versus 13 only makes it 10X better.

    ps4 is gonna be AWESOME.

    gen's sony has won:

    ps1 gen - CLASSICS
    ps2 gen - best selling console ever, GOAT game lineup, incredible.
    ps3 gen - best exclusives. that's what defined this gen. I don't care about online play or psn or xbox live.

    More units on screen, better anti-aliasing, consistent 60 frames per second, widespread use of 1080p resolution. Keep in mind most last-gen games were restricted to 720p and 30fps.
    There is a lot more devs can do with the extra power, and the proof is seen in today's top-of-the-line gaming PCs.

    I'm pretty impressed that developers have continued to pump out impressive graphics from the PS3 and 360 - both of which are 7-8 years old at this point. If the next generation is anything like this one, then it may take some time before we truly see what the PS4 is capable of. So yeah.

    If you just want a flame-baity response - PS-Force, Play Battlestation, Dem graphics, Wii Useless, Nintendon't, Wiik, etc. etc. That should do it.

    Slanted OP, good for a healthy, festering thread.

    I think nintendo is going to do what they do best and attack the nitch market that isnt really into "gaming".
    Sony is going to chug along and have pretty poor sales at first, but in a year or two after the release, they will get up to speed and show they are a powerful gaming platform like they have been before. In terms of sales? who knows.

    The only potential I like out of the PS4 is that it might be easier/more relevant to provide some nice PC versions of games with little investment on the part of developers.

    Most Nintendo consoles get "blown away". I'm not trying to say Nitendo consoles do horribly I'm just saying every time Sony and Microsoft release a console it's far more impressive than what Nintendo offers.

    As for PS4, FUCK YEAH PS4.

    Who said that in the history of ever? Every newly-developed GPU family allows for more polygons, every time more memory or faster memory is added, it allows for better textures, each time new specialized cores are created, they allow for better physics (which sometimes constitute graphics as well, I mean natural-looking flexing of materials), more particle effects, better lighting... Graphics will continue to develop on and on until they reach the level of realism that's indistinguishable from reality, and we're tens of years away from that still.

    There are jumps that are still ahead of us - eventually, as we push past the silicone and into newer, more capable materials we might get rid of polygons altogether and go full-voxel - imagine a game built out of tiny particles, just like the real world.

    Meaning what's been going on since the very dawn of video games? Yes, that's still going on.

    64 > PS1 for classics.
    DS > PS2 sales and ps2 only got heaps of sales because they broke so damn much.
    Nintendo exclusives > PS3 exclusives

    Nintendo has won all of them, well maybe not ps2 gen cause ds technically isn't part of that generation...
    But that's like the first generation Nintendo has lost.

    I'd also like to mention that this post is completely out of the blue, off-topic and... I'm sure you didn't want to stir anything up, but that's how it looks like.

    It's a well known fact that the 64 is the best home console of all time...
