no i have to completely disagree with you. the leap from SNES to N64 is a much bigger leap. games went from 2D to 3D. they literally added a dimension, no console leap will ever top that


Never? What about Fortaleza, Prototype-SR and Oculus Rift? I imagine they will have a shot at it.

not forget their arrogance is a leap too

I Hate REMASTERS

I Hate PLAYSTATION PLUS

Based on the thread title alone, I call bullshit on that statement. This guy obviously doesn't remember the transition from the 16 bit era to the 32 bit/64 bit era. The industry literally went from two dimensional sprites to fully functioning 3D worlds overnight. Within the transition of a single generation, gameplay had to be re-invented. New genres were created. Old genres died out. It was the 5th generation that was and probably always will be the biggest leap in gaming history, not the 8th generation.

Really? I think the jump from 2D to 3D graphics back in the 5th generation was A LOT bigger.

But what the developer is talking... about memory... I think it is the biggest ever... GPU performance I'm not sure.

Anybody remember a increase in 16x the size of memory from the previous gen???

Wasn't the the jump from Nes/Gensis to SNES like... 60X or something crazy like that.?

NES had 2KB of RAM, SNES had 128KB of RAM, so that's +126 KB jump.

PS3 had 512MB of RAM, PS4 has 8GB of RAM, so that's +7488 MB jump...its not even comparable lol

The graphical leap from PS3 to PS4 is in fact bigger than the graphical leap saw in PS2 to PS3.

Killzone Shadow Fall showed the biggest graphical leap between generations I ever see in a launch game for any platform.

You clearly weren't around for the SNES-N64 or N64-Gamecube leaps. ;)



Objectively, provably incorrect.

PS3 = 512 mb ram,

PS4 = 8 gb

= 16x.



Snes = 128 km,

N64 = 4 mb

= 32x

 

Edit: As bruxel mentioned, Wii to Wii U is also bigger.

 

Wii = 88

Wii U = 2048

= 23x



I wanna live the moment that most people will be disappointed with the PS4 perfomance. Its time is about to come!



i beleive the wii to wii U is actually the biggest leap.
