I'm not seeing it. Hell the jump from PS2 to Xbox was even bigger. Killzone SF, gameplay looks just like current gen games, its just that set piece even at the end that looked impressive.

Crysis 3 PC gameplay also looks like current gen games, so whats your point.

That's up for debate. Don't make me post pics, bub!

Agreed. For anyone who can't see Crysis 3 running at its full potential, check out some of the "7 Wonders" gameplay footage on Youtube. It really shows the Killzone demo's limits, at least in its current form.

Oh no I don't mean graphically.  From what I've watched from PC footage it looks like the gameplay is the same as current gen also and it's on even more powerful hardware.  I'm gonna be playing it on my new PC in the next week or so and I may be proven wrong.

Yeah, game-play feels "familiar". But, I expect a lot of early PS4/720 games to feel like that anyway.

Yes, Gow2 was comparable to Genji and Untold Legends. NBA '07 was comparable to NBA 07 on Ps2. Why are you comparing an action game to a racing game?

I was comparing the top late-gen PS2 exclusives to the top PS3 launch exclusives.  Why are you comparing sports games?  That's a terrible barometer... Madden '06 on 360 looked hardly any better than Madden on the current gen consoles of the time for example, and it played even worse due to the bugs.

 

Like I said, Ps3 launch titles were like polished Ps2 titles.

And that's the exact same thing between PS3 and PS4 (games shown so far) imo. Killzone looks like a very polished PS3 game, it looks good, but nothing more than that.

that's exactly the point. Look how far developers have come since Ps3 launch. We can't possibly say one was bigger than the other yet until devs max out the system. Since the ps4 is easy to code for I'm sure it will happen earlier in its life though

I think gameplay will start to feel different and better on both PS4/720 and PC after the next couple years as more and more capabilites become known from hardware.

Oh I agree to that, imo the biggest improvements this gen will be in terms of open world games. Imo most games will look like Killzone graphics (and by "most games" I mean the CoDs and other famous franchises).

But anyway in my opinion this leap (at least so far) is not as big as other gens. SNES to PS1/N64 was by far the biggest and PS2 to PS3 seems to be bigger.

Though I do think the jump from PS3 to PS4 is more substantial then from PS2 to PS3 with graphics finally reaching a point of believably, I think it's hard to really claim any generation as the definitive leap above all others. Trying to claim the current jump is bigger than let's say SNES to N64 is hard, since that was the big push into a whole new dimension. That being said, there is no denying what we are seeing with the PS4 is impressive, and certainly very exiting.

In absolute terms it's probably true...however, relatively speaking, cause of length of this gen, jump/year is not as big as 6th to 7th gen - for that we should be getting 7970/680 equivalent inside, at least when GPU is discussed.

yeah I can't even begin to guess which just looks better to me.  It's purely nebulous.  It's a noticable jump and that's what I ask for.  Can I tell the difference between a PS3 and 4 game?  I really want 1080p 60fps with faster loading times for everything this gen and I think PS4 can deliver that.  Along with all the extra social features and controller as well as all the stuff they're still holding back I'm ready to pre-order (signed up on Amazon to know when I can).

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



The graphical leap will always appear small from here on in because people make the mistake of comparing 6th/7th/8th generation games on the last console to 1st generation games on the new console. To really see how big the jump is you'd have to compare 1st gen games to 1st gen games.
