[MPC] Carmack Researching Next-Gen Graphics, But Finding “Mostly Negative Results"

The current console cycle (regrettable dictator of modern game graphics – hey, can we rebel using Twitter?) kicked off more than five years ago, and, well, it's seen better days. Our PCs, meanwhile, are like hulking pro athletes running around in the little leagues, easily rendering everything at ultra high spec while yawning and disinterestedly flipping through an old magazine. There's simply no sport in it. Fortunately, id Software's resident mega-brain John Carmack has our backs. At this point, though, even he may have hit a wall.

The next big step in gaming shouldn't be more detailed worlds, it should be one that we can interact with more realistically.

The last games like that were Serious Sam and Painkiller.

I think everyone has known that we (PC) are being held down by the consoles and have been for a few years now.

I always think "You know, I'm going to buy a next gen console for sure, it'll have worked out all the fps issues!"

But then you'll have to realize, they'll max out the graphics potential for 1 game and then it'll still be capped at 30fps with lag at some parts of the game, whereas I can pay that little extra to have a solid 60fps on PC.

It's a little cheaper in my book. An average of $15 less per game, plus no online fees if you're playing on the 360. Well, it's cheaper for those of us who would have a relatively high-end machine regardless of its gaming prowess anyway, since you only really factor in the cost of graphics upgrades.
