I hope they're DX11. If so, that means we will at least get ports with DX11. rolleyes.gif

Im more interested in seeing what kind of digital media they'll promote next gen. I still have to buy games on the PS3, where most of my gaming is on PC. How many physical discs did I buy for PC in the last year? NONE. My most current PC game on CD was the Sims 3, and only because I lived in the barracks at NAS Pensacola with shared internet. I really dont think any of the servers sony has could handle that kind of demand, downloading demo's was pretty painful and PS store in general is painful. I imagine graphics wise will be comparable to a high PC the time at which they'll be announced. I hope they'll be a little more forward thinking in they're design. I mean the PS3 and 360 were great and had great ideas that still hold up fairly well, but I know for at least the PS3 a few ideas were half baked and partially supported like the horrible wonky web browser. Im also tired of the idea of "Microsoft" points and putting money into my digital "sony" wallet. Call it whatever you want, stop making me transfer and convert money, its an unnecessary process. Personally I think they should be a bit more open to small development and almost have an OS similar to that of a tablet or smartphone with various small "apps" with a "desktop" like setting that I can see the weather, check emails, a small bit of browsing. If its going to be the center of entertainment in my house, it needs to do everything AND be user friendy. PS3 isnt very user friendly. Things like iOS and similar systems are designed for everybody, not just gamers, to be accessible to anyone. "Cloud" based storage and internet based format, in my mind is ideal but obviously not for everyone. But I think over the next 5 years or so it'll easily be the "standard." Bluray was a great idea, but it isnt selling nearly as well as DVDs did solely because of streaming and buying movies digitally. Its obviously the future and needs to be accounted for.

Xbox is open for game development, through XNA. Microsoft doesn't allow much on the market though which is sad, they only want to let higher quality stuff through so you only see a few new XNA apps every so often. I agree that it would be nice if they allowed apps that weren't just games. Downloading may become a bigger deal with next-gen consoles, but they'll still require physical media (blu-ray is my guess). Not everyone that wants a console has Internet so they'll still need to support those customers.

What I would really like to see on the next-gen consoles is keyboard and mouse support, that would open them up to new types of games. Also Microsoft needs to be less restrictive about their policies with 3rd party developers, I've seen entire MMOs get turned away because Microsoft wants all logins through their own Live service only, which is absurd because the accounts would obviously need to be through the publisher who would be getting the money. And microtransactions through MS points, no thank you.

My guess is that the next-gen consoles will mostly just have beefed-up hardware, and things like Kinect and Move will ship with the console so that they can become more widely used. Anytime a console adds optional hardware there is little chance many developers will use it because they know their sales would be limited to a small subset of people. The OSes may have more built-in features like Netflix right out of the box.

But, if they did come with keyboard/mouse support, and have 4890 graphic power, with the optimization that comes with console engines..... that would be a serious "rig."
7 year old tech outputs graphics just a few steps behind what computers can do all because of optimization.

Are you for real? Let me introduce you to the XIM3. What makes you think that MS would ignore that? That's why I didn't even bother mentioning kb/m. I'm sure it will come with one form or another. If not, there is the XIM3.

I know of the XIM3. I have one. I've had all of the XIMs. But, I'd still rather play PC because of graphics/60fps. If consoles get PC graphics AND mouse/keyboard...
Not to mention the XIM is only as good as the firmware which needs updated. And I get bored with going 50 and 5 every round against controllers.

The next Xbox will have ~580 GTX graphics. So let it be written, so let it be done.

Don't care about new consoles, but I hope that they will support DX11, because if they are still going to use some GPU variant that is DX9, we are screwed.

Custom version of the HD7950 OR HD8950, DX11 Compliant. Don't think Nvidia will make it into any consoles this gen.
Nintendo-ATI convirmed
M$-Very happy with ATI, likely use again.
Sony-Not happy with Nvidia, will switch to ATI.

Apple, going back to Nvidia.
Apple console would be a nice surprise.
Or a samsung one smile.gif

All hail the probability of an Nvidia card being put into the Xbox '720' when Microsoft struck a deal with AMD... just like their previous generation consoles.

Watch them re-release it in white and call it the I-pippin, yours for just $999, after they patent the colour white and the use of one's hands to do something.
