PS4 & Xbox 720 Are "Spectacular"
Filed under: PS4, XBOX 720, XBOX 360, PS3, EA, EA LABELS

Right. Next generation consoles, like the next PlayStation and the next Xbox, have been described as "spectacular" by none other than EA Labels president Frank Gibeau (that's the guy who gets brilliant ideas like: "Oh, we're re-making Need for Speed: Most Wanted? Cool, let's call it Need for Speed: Most Wanted.").

"When you launch a new IP it needs to do something really, really remarkable, and that's easier to do when you have a new set of technology that gives you novel capabilities. This is the longest cycle that any of us have ever seen, and we're at the point where a little bit of fatigue has set in, and people are wondering what they can possibly do next," said Gibeau.

He added: "I've seen the machines that we're building games for, and they're spectacular. Gen 4 hardware is a huge opportunity, and it's going to lead to a huge growth spurt for the industry.

Hahaha..."a *little* bit of fatigue has set in"?! :D

Understatement - noun
the act or an instance of understating, or representing in a weak or restrained way that is not borne out by the facts: 'The journalist wrote that the earthquake had caused some damage. This turned out to be a massive understatement of the devastation.'

"When you launch a new IP it needs to do something really, really remarkable, and that's easier to do when you have a new set of technology that gives you novel capabilities..."

A new console does present a new opportunity to launch new, ground-breaking IPs, but you're full of shit if you think it will make it easier to create one that is "remarkable." At least, in my view.

And you want creating a new, "remarkable" IP to be easy? Fuck you. Go beyond the call of your stockholders and put your ass on the line to make something amazing. Go talk to the Wachowskis.

Uh oh, queue up Halo 5 / GoW 4 / Max Payne 4, CoD 99 all for the new consoles. For the low, low next gen 4 price of $79 each!

Considering how long the 360 and PS3 have been out, it wouldn't take much for the new consoles to be awesome. The next Xbox will probably have an HD 6670, and who knows what the PS3 will have.
  touretul: 6670? That's not much.
touretul: I see nothing "SPECTACULAR" in that.
FesterSilently: Methinks that was Terminator's point, boys. ;-D
Terminator: Yes, that was my point. MS has to sell this console f…

I'll wait for the PS 5 and Xbox 1440

Let's just have a SPECTRUM console and be done with it.

Honestly. Someone give me one example of something they *could* do with a next gen console they cannot do with this generation.

Please. Such utter nonsense. Yeah, graphics will be marginally better. And ?
