[Kotaku] Unreal’s Next Engine Will Need a Console At Least Ten Times More Powerful than the Xbox 360 - Page 2

post #11 of 52
I just don't get the point of consoles any more, microsoft might as well go buy A cyberpowerpc, put xbox720 sticker on it and stop waisting their time designing proprietary piece of crap os and unupgradeable hardware

PC can do everything console can and more why even bother with consoles?

How so. Xbox 360 is 6 year old.
By Moore's law, each year computer get 2 time more powerful, while technology is not improving as fast as 2 time nowadays due to heat/power problem. 10 times doesn't sound unfeasible for most game consumer. To demonstrate this, assume Xbox 360 is 1.5 time more powerful each following year, then it would be 1.5 ^ 6 = 11.39 times more powerful by now.

This is if they built the new one with today's technology, which it sounds like they are not.

And the idea behind consoles is for people who arent as freaking cool as us and just want to hit an on button to play a game.

PC can do everything console can and more why even bother with consoles?
  1. Console usually use RISC architecture. In other word, they are cheap.
  2. Don't need to worry about hardware specification for software.
  3. Easy to find support such as driver, due to unify hardware.
  4. I guess they don't use virtual hardware. In other word, higher performance.
  5. Developer can optimize for one hardware setup and don't have to worry software to be robust as much.

In short, console are good price to performance ratio, and easy maintain.
With equal hardware console would be faster than general propose computers, despite hardware being the same in term of speed.
That said, general propose computer offer their own set of advantages.

I guess so. I was shock to hear than next gen Xbox is only 6 time more powerful. Even more surprised, when I saw people think that is good on game sites.

Consoles exist to satisfy the needs of the VAST majority of the gaming community. Counting games per capita, consoles have been FAR more influential to the history of video gaming than PCs. PC elitists seem to think that consoles are holding back tech. progress, but progress costs money, people. And where do you think that money comes from? PC gaming? NOPE. Consoles. Get rid of consoles and the gaming industry as we know it will collapse. Sadly, the same can't be said for PCs. Acting like the industry should just chuck all consoles and force everyone to buy a gaming PC is so idiotic.
