Hey there, It's my first post in the forum but i just can't hold it in anymore. I have 2 points i want some guys who're into the industries opinions on. Remember, this is only my opinion.
1) All these companies had the option to make brand new titles for the Xbox1 and Ps4. Ghosts, Fifa14, NBA, MGS5, Assassins Creed 4 yeah? They could have made these games into masterpieces of beauty, enhances effects, colours, ultra high res custom models, amazing new physics e tc.. basically pushing the new systems hardware, and blowing us away FORCING us to be in awe of how powerful the new systems are, and showing us WHY we need one yeah?
But what did they do? Nothing like that. They got Greedy... Greed is a sickness. They thought "oooooh, if we just make the games on the PS3 and xbox, and then just smooth out the meshes after and increase the texture resolution a bit we can sell them then as "next gen" games AND current gen games"... It's true. They designed those games on the current platforms, and just spent a bit of time after adding better textures and mesh smoothing. That is pure filth. Nothing in any of those games takes advantage of ANY of the new features of the new machines, so why are we paying for them as next gen games?? im disgusted. We should be throwing this rubbish back in their faces, they should be penalized.
Want proof? Play Nba on ps3 and 4 together... the difference literally is some better textures and lighting.
Ghosts... some parts of ghost, especially outside of cutsceenes literally just look like Black Ops 2 on the PS3.. it's pathetic.
Fifa? lol. I saw it on a PS4 and im not kidding, i just thought the PS3 version was being played on a nice TV because it looked sharper. Doesn't that just show how greedy and how little respect they have for us?
2) The ram on the machines is 3x faster, and there's 16x more of it... SIXTEEN times more. The CPU's are approx 10x faster/better/more full of features/more powerful. so if we say "the new console is approx 10x more powerful than the last gen", why are the game we're seeing only approx 15-20% better looking? my opinion is, it's not the hardware (judging by the last of us and beyond 2 souls) it's the developers. They're just not good enough to take advantage of hardware that powerful. i mean, if they can make beyond 2 souls after 7 years of trying on a cpu like that with 512mb ram. And arer then handed a 10x more powerful cpu and SIXTEEN x more ram and still can only make the games look roughly the same as beyond 2 souls but with some better textures here and there... doesn't it tell us something. People are the limit, not the machines.
