i know that the ps3 hasn't even come put yet but i was just thinking about what games will look like in the future. The next-gen systems (ps3/360) have way better graphics and suport hd. but when, unlike pc's, consoles get a almost 8x increase in performace (est.) every gen/upgrade. Grpahics can only get so good before we don't notice the diffrence so...heres what i think the next gens will be.
ps4 - better graphics (aa) and slightly better phisyics, like bodys moving and reacting really, diffrent pentraction/sound when stuff hit other stuff.
ps5 - (aa) and realer life phisyics (bulets are actually calculated based on gravity, weght, crude wind etc.) and stuf breaks with real physics.
ps6 - Physics is the key, even realer more persccise physics
ps6/ps7 - better physics (the chucks of molecues that are tracked get smaller) and a realler world (i.e. imagine gta but that the sytem calculates everything on the whole island, although cruder than the thing ur currently veiwing, trafic moves with ai that has it crash (so u might here on the radio slow down at xx but they will not be preprogramed but rather actuall events) and no cars just apear (unless u from a highway from a distant city) and even ppl are tracked. also if u have a car wreck it has to be picked up first and stuff remains when u leave.
beyond - the power will not be measred in graphics but rahter a)how percise the physics are, and b) how small the chunck of matter afected is (i.e. the physics of a brick sized chunk vs. a battery sized chunk)
what do u all think the future will bring?
