Locked: Has the 360 Shown Us All What It Can Do & Now Has Run Out Of Breath?

Even if we have seen the maximum potential of the 360 as far as graphics can be stretched, which is highly unlikely, who cares? Is that suddenly going to make the PS3 have good games and get a price cut to where I'd consider buying it? No.

I think that posts like this are really more telling of the state of the PS3. If you need to put up stuff like this, you're clearly feeling insecure about your console choice... And judging by the number of threads like this, so are a lot of other Sony fanboys. I feel bad for you guys.

 

 

This is exactly right. +1

For me the 360 reached its peak with GTA4.

Probably will see a BIG graphical powerhouse at E3, Alan Wake or Gears 3.

Either way, the PS3 from now will always have the better games graphically.

 

There were ported ps2 games that looked better than GTA4.

The troll is weak with this one

1. No... no PS2 game looked better than GTA4.

2. GTA4 on 360 makes it sound like a tank and almost blew my Elite up.

3. I have owned a 360 for over 2 years and play it more than my PS3 or Wii... please explain how im a troll?

4. Yes, your trolling was weak.

He said "ported" PS2 games.  There were plenty that looked better than GTAIV.



I own killzone 2, and yea its amazing to look at but its sucks to play. If the 360 has maxed out technically (which I think ridiculous), then good. Developers will be forced to be more creative, and focus on gameplay rather than ONLY graphics.

Tourok, Heavenly Blade, Haze, etc. you've seen this list of games being used as examples over and over....make it stop already

If we assume that GeOW 1 and 2 are the best looking games, there's a good explanation: Unreal Engine 3. The engine is the limit, not the console. Take Killzone 2 for example. They build an engine from scratch, for the PS3 alone. Of course they will squeeze more power out of it. Since the X360 is a lot like a pc, the pc engines work fine for it. But that does not mean it doesn't have more potential. CryEngine 3 is the first glance of that. And even that engine is multi-platform. If they create an engine solely for the X360, it will be able to push the limits as well.

The X360 has an advantage on the GPU side for developers because of the unified shader architecture. Just put something in, the GPU will take care of it since every lane can make every graphical calculation. That makes it easy for them and will refrain them from seeking the real limit of the GPU. They just give it work instead of seeing if they can make it work more efficient.

Whenever the issue of the Xbox 360 running out of technical steam is risen, you always get the same answer, "there's still more it can do", no offence but this excuse is getting old pretty quickly.

 

You want to know what is getting older, faster?  I'll tell you.  Fanboys like you who think graphics are the ultimate deciding factor in what makes a game good. 

Compare Left 4 Dead on my 360 with Killzone 2 on my roommates PS3 and guess what, L4D gets raped pretty bad visually. 

Guess what else, I don't give a shit, and would rather play 30 minutes of L4D than 3 hours of Killzone 2 because it's just more fun.

for the last time i didnt write the article theres a link mid way though this thread of the author

Is that a serious question?  Do you remember how awful the graphics are on GTAIV compared to next gen games?

It would be wise to edit the original post, then.....

 



@ nightsurge
I never said it was the best looking game on 360 this gen, i said it has peaked the full potential of what the 360 can do.
GTAIV was last gen?

Also, yes it was serious. Show me a PS2 port that looks better than GTA4.
