People often talk about an equivalent PC to the consoles out at the time. It isn’t that it can produce better results, rather, it’s code can be honed in on as a result of the closed ecosystem. Furthermore, the tech in those consoles is very much ready and it will be customized and tailored to the devices. We’re not talking about machines that will be the most powerful things on the market.
Yep, coding is the most crucial factor, and also hardware customization, optimization and balance.
I hope CPU will be much more powerful Next Gen, so we might see improved and more sofisticated gameplay dynamics, interactions, animations, physics and AI. Hopefully we will have a more significant jump Next Gen in the above mentioned things. Native 4K is cool, more geometry, draw distance, textures, effects, etc, and this is natural gen after gen, but what I would really see is a more significant jump in the "Game-play mechanics".
