Considering what they can do with a 7800gtx and a 1950XT on the consoles, they should be able to get quite a lot out of a 4870, which is 3-4 gens ahead of current console hardware.

Yea tell me about it

I'm giving mine to my father so he can surf the web a little faster and run his old school flight simulator.

Not to be a goon, but I am the only one not trying to swoon Nintendo's consolized balls? I see nowhere of them mentioning a 4870. At all. I don't know where the rumor came from but there are 4 different HD variations. For all we know it could be an HD2900 GPU.

I hate nintendo so much. I really can't put my thoughts on anything nintendo does. I just hate them so much as a company, so, so god damn much.

Strong words for a company making kids video games

Nice edit

The funny thing is that devs will still develop it's games based on the 360.

Hey Wii U, welcome to the world of PC. Overpowered for this generations of games.
On the other hand, MS and Sony's new consoles will dominate the WiiU in a few years.

Now, the PC enthusiasts out there are probably saying "So what, doesn't affect my PC games", but it does affect PC games as many of you have seen over the last few years as developers have begun making multiplatform games that have specs targeting the console tech. If the new consoles come out and don't advance much then I fear that consoles will continue to stagnate many types of PC games for another 5-6 years. Some games wouldn't be affected much, like RTS and MMO genres, but major first-person shooters could easily be affected along with many other types. The rise of console gaming has been great for the gaming industry as a whole, and developers, because tens of millions of people who didn't play games before are now becoming casual gamers, more customers means more money, but for PC enthusiast gamers I see this continuing trend as a bad thing for them.
This.

I don't really want to offend anyone, but next gen consoles can or will put a dent into PC gaming when it comes to graphics and optimization. Working on metal with high end equipment such as a 580 or 6970 will push consoles over the edge as far as smoothness and frame rate go for the first few years. Granted larger resolutions and newer hardware will emerge on the PC side, it wouldn't surprise me if some devs drop PC support like they have in the past when 360/PS3 was in it's growing stages.

The only reason I'm still a "PC gamer" Is due to competitive gaming. I could care less about BF3 and frostbite 2 looking better than goldsrc or modified Q3.

It is pretty poor considering that hardware every 18 months or so doubles in speed for the same price. For this to be ON PAR with the rate of technology growth it should be 3x as powerful as the systems that were released 5 years ago....and it isn't even out yet!

It's not the power of the console, but how they use it.

My point is, unless you're running crossfire a 6990 "GPU" wouldn't do any good in an Xbox '720'

I hope they put in BC for Wii, and GC games.
