Are next-gen consoles already behind the times? - Page 3

Not that this is PC vs. Consoles...but still...shouldn't the consoles be PUSHING next-gen technology because, ya know, they're NEXT-GEN? Instead what we get are mid-range at best and low-range at worse PC's in a box.

Give a year or so and even APU's will crush the consoles in power. Heck, you could take the APU in the PS4/X1 and make that a desktop chip ALREADY.

That's just it... they can't build a console system like that this time around(and probably not again). The money just ain't there. Plus, 1080p is their target because the next jump in the lowest common denominator/corporate entertainment world is going to be 4K, and those are alreay looking like they will be slow to catch on.

The worst part is that this will freeze PC gaming at DX11.2 like the 360 froze it at 9.0c.

The conventional rules don't apply to consoles. The consoles are not behind anything because hardware is not the main or even an important selling point of a console. They'll be all right, chugging along at their normal pace until the end of the predicted life-span. It's a proven formula that works.
