To tell the truth I am not all that disappointing that there is no great leap in the console department, the power has been upped. Which for me is
more then enough, with the current models of graphic power you can still go farther, but on average things are pretty much as good as they are going
to get. The thing that gets me is that, for most games the development stages can last anywhere from 1 year to over 5 years, which is longer then
some consoles lifespans. I know there were supposed to be a bunch of games for the PS3 which never made it due to the fact that it would just take to
long to make the game, by the time they figured everything out well the PS4 would come out.
It is the same back in the ps2 days, some games never
made it out, so they just scraped the whole thing or remade it for the newest consoles. Lots of them however were just scraped because in the
changing console climate were the lifespan is 5 to 7 years and were for some of them it would take that long to develop it, well the math did never
add up, and so they were scraped or put in the, maybe next generation of consoles bin.
The X-box 1 and the PS4 seem to be on par at least in the amount of power they can crank out, this will at least give game makers time to implement
the things they wanted to but never did not only because they never had the raw power, or had to deal with different operating systems for each
console which took time, or just because they just did not have the time. I mean think about it, unless your just making the latest madden game,
then it does take some time to really make a great game, no copy and paste like so many games coming out seem to do, a lot of them just seem to be a
1.1 upgrade version, and next year you get the new 1.2 version. There were a bunch of games which were supposed to come out for the PS3 and 360 which
never made it, some of them were literally from back when the systems came out, and even though I cant off the top of my head remember them, they were
pretty ambitious in scope, hopefully we will see them out on the PS4 or the X-box 1 now that things will be steady and they not only have had the
time, but the power and know how to implement them.
The whole kinetic thing required to even use the new x-box 1 I personally really do not care, its a cool feature. But ya the thing is kind of scary
as it will be able to read your every move and know what you want and what your going to do even before you do it, # all it needs is a infra red
sensor and it can pick up your body heat and tell when your getting anxious or worried from reading your body heat levels as well as reading your
facial features and postures, it will know more about you then you will know about yourself. People on this site are worried about the government
spying on them. Well who needs it when you will have a kinetic in every household, a vast machine global network were slowly machines are replacing
man as the main arbiter of this world.
The lock on games however is what does it for me, I know there doing it to milk as much a$$ they can. And I mean, I like most people probably just
buy a game and play that, but once in a while you do go over to a buddy house and play the game or borrow a game from my local renting place or friend
to play. If you can not even do that anymore ... Then. I think I will stick with the console wont be so restrictive, you know there going to start
charging for pretty much every little thing much more now that they will be able to do that. And considering that most games now a days what with the
constant updates and new map packs and add ons and whatever, it just feels like your buying half a game, or a completely unfinished product, in truth
there milking that for all its worth, this will just add more of the same to what is supposed to be a simple gaming experience. The fact that its
going for the whole household entertainment replacing everything but the TV as a one in all entertainment experience as well as a gaming machine, is
cool and all but if there is going to be a lock on games, expect the same on everything else.
