You're missing the point. I'm not saying there WON'T be any graphical improvements, just not any massive ones over time. Again with the other consoles, which had BELOW 512MB to use, they required heavy levels of optmizing and engine-remakes to fully utulize. This gen doesn't feature any compllications, and instead allows for developers to untilize the hardware quickly.
Maybe I'm just terrible at explaining. Imagine developing a game is like riding a hill on a bike. The past generation was the equivellent of a standard bike with a small frame and crazy phyicial design. To be able to use it, people would need to take the frame and make the most of it by adding things such as different gears and changing the equipment to keep the bike form falling apart. Over time, the bike gains performance as more time is spent on improving it.
A current gen console is like a mountain bike, with all the lights, gear, helmets, etc, already on it. There is little to improve on the frame, since it gets the job done already. They might add things such as lighter materials and paint jobs to make it look nice and perform a small amount better, but the changes aren't as drastic as equipping a basic bike with the latest in gear.
Now excuse me, I need to go to a corner and think about what I'm doing with my life by typing essays to random people on the internet.
You call that an essay? xD
Your lot have been regurgitating the same idiocy at the start of every console generation since the N64. -__-
It was nonsense back then. It's still nonsense. You think we're already at the point of diminishing return?
Tell me where are my Avatar calibre graphics?
When the hell did I even mention diminishing returns? Now you're just plain talking out of your ass. I said that the jump in visuals THIS GEN OVER TIME won't be as significant, because the hardware is already easy to program for. That's what this thread is about. Much of the power available is already being used, and the jump from the ps2- looking Uncharted and Resistance to Uncharted 3 and Resistant 3 won't happen this gen. You don't even know what you're arguing about, making pointless references to Avatar visuals that I never even mentioned.
But alright, I'll get off topic with you and respond. Your Avatar graphics are a few buys away from this store called Tiger-Direct and a few click from joining online mod communities.
Think about how great looking the last of us, halo 4, sonic generations and forza horizone are, now imagine what they could do with 10x the power, there will alway be new techniques to make games look better on consoles because thats were all the sales come from, you will see games that makes launch games look like crap, they haven't even scratched the surface of what the ps4 could do.
