    No next-gen consoles until 2012? - GameSpot News Blog - Gaming News and Videos

    damn @ it almost being 4 years since the 360 came out......

    then again, when the 360 dropped at first, i didn't feel the need for a new system then either...i didn't think they would be able to upgrade it too much......

    most people are just now getting their current gen system....and their aren't that many good games out at all yet (probably because they take twice as long to make now)

    interesting read anyway.......if it kept going the way it's been the last 10 years, we'd get a new xbox next year..lol

    after seeing games like metal gear solid and gears of war

    i don't think it's much more they can do graphically........except up the resolution or whatever....atleast not right now......

    only system i see getting a "next gen" soon,is the wii....since it's so cheap to make and buy.....i'd love to see them implement some of those ideas that VR guy did with the wii mote.

    360 is maxed out
    sure..

    too short a lifecycle.
    they'd be crazy to ask people to shell out $600 for a slightly superior system

    nothx

    They're both maxed out. Having more space on a disc doesnt mean anything.

    2012 seems like a good time to aim for. definitely not any sooner (for Ps at least).

    lol.. ps3 is maxed out?
    it has only begun, ps3 at best is only now entering the second generation of games.
    every generation of games on a console gets better looking because developers learn to exploit the features of the consoles as much as possible.

    when john carmack speaks. EVERYONE listens.

    Carmack: Rage to look worse on 360 if limited to two DVDs - Joystiq


    "The developer's upcoming title Rage could actually look worse on Xbox 360 "due to the compression needed to fit the game's assets on two DVDs," reports Shacknews."

    disc space isn't important you say?? developers have cancelled games on the 360 because of storage issues.

    its like that.

    PS3 is on a 10 year cycle anyway..
    So November 2016 release date sounds good to me for PS4 regardless of whether Microsoft or Nintendo do something way sooner.

    both sony and ms learned some lessons

    sony - never be late to market again. ps3 is the first time they had a console with online as standard, so they're still figuring shit out. they will lock in exclusives by contract. less expensive dev kits, more support to developers. Being developer friendly is incredibly important, especially when your console has completely new architecture.

    microsoft - will most likely avoid hardware plagues. i'm sure they'll be even more aggressive getting exclusives. they will probably buy more development houses.

    the point of getting ff13 is not to give a big fuck you to sony, its more of a strategic move to make sure that their base never had a reason to buy a ps3. at the end of the day they're still getting a port of a ps3 game, but its a massive blow none the less. sony will learn from that shit

    nintendo learned a new lesson too. they learned they be issued federal reserve bank status by the united states government

    2012 Sounds right. I don't think I'd want anything anytime sooner. Maybe late 2011. PS3 has alot of life still, I think.

    Disk space isn't a big issue....blueray is too big and loads so slow, that half the game needs to be preloaded onto a hardrive, which means your going to have to by new hardrive space.

    i haven't had any loading issues with bluray
    say what?

    wtf @ too big?

    half the game doesn't need to be preloaded to the hard drive, just the essential components of the game.
    you never installed a game onto your computer? its a one time thing.

    you haven't had load issues? You haven't played Metal Gear Solid? I had to load for 30 sec's after every little scene, then 4 to 8 minutes after every chapter....gay...

    only games that don't have to download to your hardrive for load issues, are games that can fit on a normal cd.....

    blueray disks only have something like a 1.2 disk reading spead, which is why they have horrible load times and require hardrive space. It's not needed. Carmaks game is just lazy design if compression is a problem.


    and i had to install metal gear over 5 times , once after each chapter....so no it's not a one time deal.
