Well when I talk diminishing returns, you just have to look at how dramatic each generational leap has been under the same circumstances of minimal effort.
PS1 to PS2 was massive.
PS2 to PS3 was also massive.
PS3 to PS4 was less massive, and no where near what the previous two had been. It was still however, very noticeable with time.
PS4 to PS5 looks barely different at all to me, and many others.
There is no denying that diminishing returns is happening, and at a very fast rate. Now of course later in the gen, the leap will be more apparent. But for the first few years of the console, I don't expect much. Especially with what I have seen thus far. And that is cool with me, because at this point I am more interested in the other innovations the new tech will offer.
Ironically, plenty of folks thought the jump from PS3 to PS4 was also not every big either. There will always be those who don't see much difference and plenty who do. Diminishing returns are about what goes in and comes out than what is perceived.
As of right now, no, we haven't even gotten close to the gains being comfortably diminished. Yes, it is happening (though not quite a fast rate), but we have a ways to go before we cannot put in the work to make those jumps apparent.Last edited by CGI-Quality - on 13 June 2020
