@F22_King_Raptor The WiiU is technically the start of the next-generation, but...Nintendo pre-maturely released that console.

@Kane04 @ivory_soul @Danny_KickAzz Didn't know they split into two teams. I think Ubisoft holds the record with 6 studios working on Assassin's Creed: Revelations.

@transferstude WiiU died in shame the second it was released.

I read an article today saying that the leaked price point for the PS4 would be around $450-529. I say $600 again.

@Danny_KickAzz Uncharted 4 is unlikely because Naughty Dog is working on The Last of Us. Media Molecule is working on an indie type game right now, and Infamous 2 wasn't all that great...Killzone 4 is probably the most likely.

I doubt we'll hear about "it's pre-rendered" as THAT leap in graphics has already passed. I'm curious to see what promises Sony won't keep once the console is released like all the hardware that was SUPPOSED to be packed into the PS3 during the big reveal at E3 2005.

Terrible comparison. There's no way in hell anyone can think the consoles come close to the PC version on Ultra. You need at least TWO high-end graphics cards (Nvidia 680's or AMD RADEON HD 7970s) and a high end quad-core CPU for that setting. GameSpot isn't showing the game on Ultra to make the console version look better or the PC version not so much better in comparison.
