last gen was too long.
only like 1.5% of gamers actually give a shit about "full-resolution" or 60 fps. those gamers should play PC because console are for convience and budget concious gamers.
This. And I'm glad I'm not one of them!
They came out at the best possible time.
Is this is true, then why get a PS4 or X1 at all? PS360 at present have tons more games, and thanks to cross-gen, there are VERY VERY few true exclusives to PS4/X1.
How well did GTAV sell on PS4/X1? Unless most of those buyers had never played it before on Gen7, then those players definitely cared about resolution/FPS, because otherwise WHY REBUY IT? It's not like it was an old game. Ditto TLOU:HD.
1.5% sounds idiotic imho, because of the absoutely huge margin of cross-gen games so far.
Excluding PC, you have a mediocre Killzone, Ryse, The Order, Forza 5, and a small smattering of gems like Sunset Overdrive and Bloodborne so far. Everything else (Madden, COD, GTA, FC4, etc) is largely on last-gen consoles.
The 'people don't give a fuck about graphics' idea sort of forbids the entire concept of new hardware. Even the exclusives that are only on Gen8 so far could EASILY have been done on PS360, just at lower resolution/FPS. Look at GTAV, PS360 could handle plenty. Name ONE game that PS360 couldn't play that is on PS4/X1. Bloodborne? It would have looked like Demon's Souls graphically, but easily done. Sunset Overdrive? Easy, but maybe 600p. Etc/etc/etc.
You can't have it both ways.
