Maybe it's elitist of me to say this, but I kinda hope it stays full next-gen, personally. I mean both for selfish reasons and also for the sake of the mini-fridge and speaker. Give people more and clearer reasons to upgrade. I mean they don't need a lot of those reasons right now while there's a shortage of mini-fridges owing to the most hardcore gamers buying right away as usual, but y'know, by say next fall when it starts being more about average gamers...I think more incentive to upgrade starts to become key.
Its fine, if it makes the game better than i am all in. At least now they wont have excuses not to be able to do great A.I on the newer CPUs. Even though the N64 did amazing A.I on a CPU you will find better in watches.
As cool as it is to have Perfect Dark back, just what is the point of a trailer like this. Should've been more bombastic. But I assume MS is going to have an event where they show off 1st gameplay for the last year of CG/ in game announcements they've had.
So, there's that to look forward to at least.
The difference between this trailer and lets say an E3 trailer is that no one asked for it, we got something out of nothing. This trailer is to get the hype going and the wheels rolling. We officially know its legit now. Hoping we see gameplay soon, however the game is probably still is a long way off.
The issue I have with this is not so much the trailer itself, but rather that it is just another MS reveal that is just so devoid of anything tangible for the audience.
Like, if MS had done a better job of their new game showings this year, I wouldn't see this trailer as a problem. Like you said, it's to get the hype going. And that's a fair point because ultimately what these sort of trailers can do.
But another one? It just feels so night and day compared to what Sony and Nintendo are doing. They aren't free of these sort of reveals either, but they have a lot more gameplay-esque reveals that do a better job of starting the hype cycle.
I do believe they have a bombastic gameplay based event coming some time, so I do look forward to that, whenever it is.
