And so the next generation of console hardware begins - Page 3

post #21 of 24
So the next generation of consoles will have about four year old hardware (which will be even older by then)? Oh my.

for most people that fact that its optimized to the limit with no clunky O/S or MS getting in the way of the API means that even on that low spec it will at least do some better textures AA and 1080p possible which perhaps is all that is missing from Nintendo`s current generation machine. At the moment they just about squeeze 480p with no aa and poor textures and low geometery from an over clocked gamecube, a genuine 1080p 30 or 60fps mario would be a revelation in comparison

i do think Sony and MS will come out with something faster perhaps a hybrid 5xxx series Ati optimized with a 6-8 or 12 core cell.
again it will do 1080p, AA, miles better textures and lighting, feature DX11 and be optimized so you can really get what you expected given the awesome stats of a modern ati/nvidia but with more than a current 5xxx or 6xxx series delivers on the PC

im all for them. improved PC gaming better ports. and proper 1080p image clarity on menus/apps and games (not forgetting improved audio and better controllers)

are you insane?

Really? Nintendo had the hard core gamers first. Ask any one in the 30-35 year old range... they were hard core gamers back when NES is all there was. Then the Super Nintendo... then they lost it after Sony launched the Playstation.

SNES FTW. I remember many days of smashing up my friends on Street Fighter II.

The N64 had a decent run aswell with games like Perfect Dark, which was so popular it actually got re-released and re textured.

Even the Gamecube had its fair share of games like Resident Evil 4, etc.

Nintendo have never done bad in the market to be honest. I think the fact they are still going strong to this day is testament to that.
