Nah. They will make more Direct to Hardware games, and more x360 exclusives which won't be "cost effective" to optimally port to PC.

Also, *** WHY SO MUCH BLOOM? BLOOM EVERYWHERE.

Wow. That actually looks good for a console. So if they're developing new tech for the 360 does that mean they'll be a new version? Or just a huge software update?

even if its not on par still lame that we dont get that kind of dedication on our systems. yes yes i know the arguments blah blah different cards cant optimize as much

LOL you're not alone.. after reading a few about how DX and consoles limit PC.. I felt like an idiot purchasing a 5870 2gb for 200 bucks.. and a lately found out that the 6950 2gb can be had for 230 xD

LOL just wanted that out

Guess I am losing the heart and cash for above average pc gaming 0oomph xD

I completely agree this is huge for the console world but it does still look a bit blurry. Lets hope with this new tech they dont have the massive amount of hardware failures. I hope they learned their lesson with the 360

I bet it will take a lot for MS to put this into a game and when they do I bet it wont look nearly as good as this tech demo. Plus did anyone else notice that some of the leaves would follow the player as he moved around?

Impressive for a console. Pisses me off that consoles get so much more effort put into them than my way more powerful PC.

It's very nice, but I can see the tree textures being slightly repetative (if you understand what I mean) and the lighting looks a lot like Frostbite lighting (I'm not keen on that). All in all, I like what they've done here.

Fixed.

It really comes down to that the fact that the hardware used in consoles was the same for the past 5 years so it's easier to optimize than a PC where new hardware is introduced every 6 months. Paired with the profitability of consoles, you have a more cost efficient platform in order to divert resources to.

Most of the ignorant statements are made out of anger. But, can you really blame them for being mad? The whole market is telling them to buy new hardware with promises from developers like, "we kept the PC in mind." In the end they are paying hundreds of dollars a year for upgrades and the only advantages are the controls and hi-res textures. No matter how many times you tell them why they are still going to be mad.

Tweaking for efficiency eventually gets to a point where the returns start to diminish and are no longer worth the cost/time. It took them 5 years to hit the mark where they are now. This is probably the last improvement of this size we'll see with this hardware.
