Go build a pc that is the equivalent of the 360 and try running far cry 3 on it. it's not going to happen. period. The fact of the matter is you can get so much more out of a console than you can a pc using less. It's baffling that people havent realized that yet. There will be plenty of games on the new consoles that look better than any game on pc for the next few years and then obviously the pc versions will pull away as hardware gets better. It's no different than gears of war 1 on 360, at the time there was not a game on any console or pc that looked as good. Not even Unreal Tournament 3 that obviously used the same engine. Im not sure how many of yall are pc gamers, but you can run 99.9% of pc games maxxed out right now with a computer that is weaker than the next gen consoles. Hell you can run crysis 3 maxxed out at 1080p with gtx 660 ti and intel i7 3770k and 8 gigs of ram with out a problem. If that can run it fine so can either of these dedicated next gen consoles.
I have to disagree with this, I've seen several direct capture screenshots of shadow fall and several game play videos in full HD and reasonably good quality. The game looks great no doubt. I recently played Crysis 3 on my PC, at the high preset (not ultra). I must say I consider its graphics to be better than Killzone, with larger scale to boot. Looking at any next gen game, any recent PC title that uses Direct X11 effectively looks just as good if not better. Including more ambitious 3D games from indies (The Forest, Roberts Space Industyries etc). Even tech demos like Unigine Valley, beats any large scale environment I've seen on these next gen systems by far, yet runs great on decent hardware. No Titans, SLI or CrossFire required. So no, these systems aren't going to blow any decent gaming PCs out of the water. Over time upgrades will be warranted true, but it comes with the territory. And is not as expensive as people like to make it sound.
I predict that the Wii U will sell a total of 18 million units in its lifetime.
The NX will be a 900p machine
