    It's just not really news, is it Progg.

    Launch titles in underwhelming reality shocker.

    I'm buying both machines, and i'll not be rushing out and buying loads of launch titles. I'll buy one or two - Forza 5, Watch Dogs, inFAMOUS when that drops etc

    I'll rinse those games until the next genuine class games comes out. Not bitch and moan because it's Friday and i can't buy a brand new tripleA IP this week.

    What you've done, though, is seen five seconds of a game, and from that decided you're going to stick with PC.

    Only, you'll not leave it there, will you. You'll come into this thread for the next year or two, to constantly tell us why we should do the same.

    I think any seasoned gamer at this point will have a pretty good nose for bullshots and bullshit.

    To be honest anyone buying a console for launch games is a mug. In fact quite frankly anyone buying a console at launch is probably a mug (I have pre-ordered btw), but if you do so you make an educated guess on the potential. That's really what you're buying into. And the PS4 seems to have rather a lot.

    But yeah, the smart person waits for the potential to become reality and then buys, as what's the point if just buying for potential? But fuck it. Teh sh1nies!!1

    Has anyone pointed out that the first wave of games on consoles always are a bit of a disappointment graphically speaking?
    Yes, but it is still a bit dissappointing that the Wii U is yet to get a game on par with 7 year old consoles after being out nearly a year. I am hoping (expecting) that the PS4 and Xbox thingy will at least match the latest PS3 and 360 levels at launch, and improve that over time.

    @H1ggyLTD I felt it was discussion worthy. That's *quite* a considerable downgrade compared to what was shown "running in real time on PS4" hardware.

    I mean, realistically, I felt it wouldn't look quite as good as that reveal trailer but seriously, those shots are pretty poor.

    Also, stop exaggerating.

    Shirley the specs speak for themselves? This is a bit like when people concluded the PS4 can't do 60fps. I think it's unlikely Sony somehow managed to significantly upgrade each component in the system and end up with a console that only looks as good as the PS3.

    It's a bit of a physical impossibility.

    How about waiting until the PS4 and the games are out and in our hands before passing final judgement on them? That'd be nice.

    Sorry, can we just get confirmation on whether Progguitarist will be sticking with his PC? That is surely the burning issue.

    Yeah, but even the best looking game in the world can look shockingly bad if you pick the right area/angle/conditions.

    Bioshock, for example, was gorgeous. But get too close to almost any part and it looked like the work experience guy did a mockup.

    So yeah - fixating on some dubious or ill-considered footage of an incomplete game = more than a little silly.

    Even if all we get form the cross-generation launch titles is 1080p, smoother framerates, and better shaders, it'll be a step up from the current gen. A big one.

    And even if we don't get that at launch, so what? 360 had a pretty awful launch all told. It still ended up being probably the best console of the gen.

    Hell, even the PS2 had a pretty weak launch line up.

    Plus, we're already aware that this jump in gen may be the least impressive, graphically, of all time, aren't we?

    It can't ever be the jump that 3D of HD was, can it.

    I wasn't really gaming very much around the time of the last transition. The first game I got for my 360 was Gears. That was pretty impressive.

    Jaw dropping.

    But as discussed - if you're hoping for a similar leap straight away, you're almost certainly going to be disappointed.

    Anyway.

    Is Destiny going to be a launch window game? Is it due this year?

    Everyone going into it with fresh memories of TLoU isn't going to help either. ND have shown up everyone releasing a launch day next gen game.

    Iíve decided to part-exchange my Wii U towards an Xbone at Christmas and then trade the Xbone for a PS4 when it launches in 2014.

    No. Nothing more concrete than 2014.

    I think a lot of the first party and second party stuff is gonna deliver a lot more. If the footage of stuff like Forza 5 and Infamous Whatever is anything to go by, the graphics whores are in for a fair treat.

    Games might be shite, like, but shiny shite at least.

    On the subject of pretty games looking bad close up, did anyone notice the giant pay phones in TLOU?

    I was underwhelmed, at first. Certainly compared to Uncharted.

    Delivered in the end, though.
