Off course these current laptop cost ALOT more than a console, im just saying that in 2 years I wouldnt be surprised to see 500$ laptop outperfoming the current razer blade while maintaining the same form factor, making console pretty much irrelevent.
doubt it. We have yet to see a game take advantage of these consoles. It'll take a few years for that. Even for the recent first party games, the engines developed for those games only had a "hardware target" to program for. The intricacies of both consoles would not have been finalized until near the end of last year - and even then the SDK's will continue to develop.
New rendering techniques will also continue to improve giving the devs more "bang per buck" sort of increases.
So many people seem to think that the consoles have already shown off all they can offer, yet we haven't even seen a Halo, Gears of War, Mass Effect, God of War, Skyrim, etc...type of game yet!
This is not a surprise....
Heck, even with the 360, look at Halo 3 (which came out about 2 years after the 360's release) Even after all that time to develop the engine for that game, it was still vastly improved upon throughout the consoles life-cycle up until Halo 4.
