And seems like you have a spelling problem. See, cheapshots won't get us anywhere 

This amount of RAM has never been added to a successor console before and that's a FACT

NES to SNES seems like a big jump only because of how laughable NES hardware was, even for it's own time. It's not much of an achievement to make a big jump from that 


He wasn't making a cheapshot; he was pointing out that you didn't actually answer his point at all. The conversation was about proportional leaps in power. NES to SNES was 64x and PS3 to PS4 is 16x. Therefore, the leap was bigger. It doesn't matter if NES hardware was crap; the leap was still bigger.

Also, your second argument is very difficult to process. You realize that when the Wii U was launched, you could make the same statement about it? It added 0.75GB more than Wii's RAM, if I'm not wrong. No other console had done that so far. Do you really think that means it was the biggest jump ever because of that?

Pointing out someone's reading comprehension is a cheapshot, no different than poiting out spelling mistakes. Difference is, English is probably his 1st language, while its my third

Yeah and those  64x didnt even add up to 1/5 of a Megabyte. Impressive jump lol. You can clearly see th 64x difference when comparing SMB3 and Super Mario World...

And yes, i could have made the same statement about WiiU, because it was the biggest leap until PS4 was announced



All relative to me. Worst jump was SNES to N64 and best was PSone to PStwo. Honestly games could slow down and be fine seeing refinement as graphics are reaching point I am content with.



I think the 3rd to 4th generation jump was larger.



Love and tolerate.

It's amazing seeing the amount of downplaying, in terms of the actual leap.  Seems like a lot of it is coming from Nintendo fans.  I suppose a conitinuation of the "the PS4 won't be that big of a leap over the Wii U."  It is quite a leap over last gen.  Just as equal as any leap, really.  Of course, to truly compare you have to compare launch titles to launch titles.

Resistance (PS3)

Killzone: SF (PS4)

 

Yep, not much of a leap, at all.

It is a nice leap, but I just don't think it has the same impact or is as obvious as the ps2-ps3 or xbox-360 leaps.



I think I'll post some launch racing games, just to show the leap, as well.

Ridge Racer (PS1)

Rider Racer V (PS2)

Ridge Racer 7 (PS3)

Drive Club (PS4) (Skip to ~2:30)

Again, not much of a leap.

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

I'm a old NES owner... after SNES, PlayStation, N64, PS2 and PS3/Wii.

Maybe, yeah maybe, the SNES to N64 was big but that's just because the 2D to 3D is more noticiable... I don't know if the jump was that big.

But form the first games the PS4-PS3 jump is bigger than PS3-PS2.



Cool, hope they eventually show off these games that show this huge leap. Because right now all I have seen are slightly better looking games that play just like current gen games.

Dreamcast saw games like NFL2k and Soul Calibur at launch that blew anything away we'd previously seen both in visuals and how they played. That's still the biggest leap imho. And PSone to PS2 seemed bigger than anything we'll see from Sony/MS this gen too.

It's been said many times that gamers will be pretty disappointed expecting a huge leap this gen.

- Crysis 3 is a big leap over Killzone demo
- PS2 to PS3 leap is bigger than PS3 to PS4
