Then, Cliff, you should know that it is neither possible nor economically feasible.
Fucking graphics obsession.

Cliff Blezsinzki = interesting. dice wants more power?

Did you even read what the Dice guy said? he barely mentioned power far less than Cliff actually his focus was on connectivity

oh and we are 15 years away from Avatar level visuals in real time

wait what ??? 15 years??? are you serious???? have you been sleeping the past 15???? look at what you had available to the public 15 years ago..... heck right now I'm on a PC that is 5 years old that I refurbished a couple month ago.... that rig is less powerfull than most smartphone out today..... in 15 years you'll be able to actually process the CGI frames of an avatar quality movie on a PC faster than the super computer did..... heck prognosis are that within 20 to 30 years the processing power of a PC will be close to the processing power of every human brain combined..... not sure we'll be there.... but game in avatar quality graphic at least on PC will be possible way before the 10 year mark.....

now about about developing looking at what MS wants to do it will be cheaper to dev on windows if they actually streamline windows 8 on all platform... the architecture of the hardware will be also redundent... plus devs will find ways to make things cheaper to do as they always have..... and I do seriously belive that we'll have more and more serialized games.... that go retail chapter by chapter and you pay like 10 to 30 bucks per release or maybe 30 for the DVD and then 10 bucks for every new chapter you get.....

it took ~15 years to get Toy story levels of detail and it will likely take ~15 years to get to Avatar level possibly longer if we can't find a good replacement for silicone in the next 5 years. Avartar level detail will require at least 2000 times more powerful systems than we have now (that is inluding a lot of optomisation and not the actual amount of proccessing power used to render which is actually 40,000 times more powerful than a top end PC today at 0.000001 frames per seccond) which is at least 15 years of moores law. I mean Avatar used 1 petabyte of assets just for graphics...

Sorry but you just don't know what you are talking about
