Why do people think consoles hold gaming back?
Is it not clear that making a console with more beef will cost more money making less people want to buy it due to the financial loss?
Does it not make sense that making a game that works on mid tier hardware will make more sales because such a small percentage of people are willing to spill that much money into a PC that contains god tier hardware?
Then there are people who complain about buyers remorse stating people say bad games are good to justify the purchase of their console. If a lot of people enjoy these "bad games" does it not suggest they are good games? Do you truly believe your opinion is greater than the masses because you THINK your opinion holds more weight than most people. Is it not a bigger expression of buyers remorse to call these games bad because they are that much behind your extremely expensive PC leaving you with less content to fully put it to the test?
Does it not make sense that rather than consoles holding back games it is just your PC is ahead of modern day standards? Why should the best of the best of the best be considered the standard when so few people invest in it?
And for the love of god why do people say things like "developers shouldn't be thinking of the money." Is it not their job? Is it not sensible to try and get the maximum amount of finance from your product? What motivation does a developer have to put in MORE effort to produce an outstanding looking game that LESS people will play due to hardware limitations? Why do you think developers OWE you a breakthrough game that runs on the most advanced hardware and will earn them less money when a good game will work on a wider range of hardware and make them more due to a larger target audience?
How long did the last console generation last?
How much better is this generation?
How long will this generation last?
I have an old 560ti and it looks like I won't need to upgrade for another fucking decade.
That's why op.
Its true, the PC holds the PC back, but only because we allow a console and tablet company to control the PC platform. Remove Windows and the PC platform would progress much more rapidly.
Unfortunately even with Microsoft's strengthening commitment to tablet with Windows 8 and 10, and the fact that they're now earning money off of their tablet business there will still be many people here in denial convinced that somehow Microsoft will turn around and return to making desktop operating systems, or that they'll be ok using an already badly out of date five year old OS for another six years.
They really don't think that. It's just an excuse mustards have for why their platform that's supposedly ten times more powerful than consoles are full of shitty 2D indie games and console ports that run worse than the version on console.
I just blame the devs, they get lazy as fuck and don't want to take advantage of the hardware so they find a way to push out the bare minimum that'll work on all platforms rather than taking the time to make use of each ones unique capabilities.

That's how he breaks the skin of the banana. Why he's so mad is a mystery though.
the same faggot who would beat up a
Let that Aussie try this one out. He'll get killed from a kick alone. That one looks like a smaller species.
>consoles aren't holding games back
>PC is just ahead of standards
No, just no. Gaming isn't going to catch up to tech. That's a given. We have DDR4 RAM and X99 Mobos with 8 core processors that give no benefit over DDR3 RAM, Z87 mobos with 4 core CPUs. Hyperthreading, which has been around for over a decade now, is just now becoming useful for gaming.
The problem is a combination of the ceiling for tech being so high that it's borderline useless for devs for now, and that consoles are massively lagging behind in terms of quality. They're not mid range equivalent. They're low tier locked PCs. The benefit they get is from APIs instead of CPUs.
Chimpanzees really are just peaceful creatures. They're very strong, yes, but they would never harm a human unprovoked.
But they have smaller species as well. That one looks like a gray kangaroo. Reds aren't as small or scruffy.
Actually, it's the young ones. The adults get aggressive due to the testes and testosterone that come with it. You never see adult chimps in movies, only the younger ones. At most you may get some passive females, but never the males. Never.
You are right. My mistake.
He's right. They are TINY at birth. Very tiny.
It brings me joy knowing that people were more interested in my OP unrelated pic rather than flaming like crazy over my post.
I apologise for trying to start shit, you have surprised me today /v/
Great apes are the only animals I feel iffy about keeping in Zoos. Elephants too I guess, they're pretty fucking smart. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5LfYHJWUtE#t=1m15s
But I mean, what's the alternative? Have them go extinct through deforestation or poaching? Wildlife reservations are good, but there aren't enough.
>end deforestation and poaching
Like that will ever happen.
In two years time, budget PC hardware will surpass consoles and they'll still have the same old shit in them(Fuck, that's almost the case already since consoles are midrange PCs at best). Up until last year, Consoles were running on budget hardware from 2006 - 8 whole years ago - that was available in 2005. So yes, Consoles are holding gaming back.
They taught a gorilla sign language, and it told a story about its mother being poached when it was a baby. It even expressed how it felt at the time, using the signs for cry and sad. Gorillas/apes are so smart its scary. They are ridiculously close to us in intelligence
I wouldn't go as far as to use that in order to grade how smart they are. Eating poop is something we as humans find to be both socially unacceptable and genetically nonexistent, since humans that ate poop probably never mated. Being in a zoo, there aren't any diseases to gain from it nor do they have a social structure like we do to prevent them from committing such acts.
He's pretty smart for thinking outside the box if you ask me. I mean he's getting all those extra nutrients that weren't absorbed through regular digestion. A fucking Da Vinci.
zyzz has come back to us
inform the media
In a word: assets. Games designed for console don't have particularly good assets, and when they get ported to PC, they very often retain the same assets, with framerate and resolution being the only improvements. I want to see a game with stunningly detailed assets and beautiful attention to detail, but right now that just isn't possible if it's on consoles unless they commit themselves to 30fps and 720p. And even then, it's a stretch. Furthermore, to develop such a game as a PC exclusive and thus generate such suitable assets simply would not be profitable compared to just developing it for consoles.
Of course, it's not just a problem with consoles. Even the developers of a PC exclusive are liable to err on the side of lower specs and do the same thing anyway, so that everyone who owns a toaster can buy and play their game. See: Blizzard.
To me, it's mostly just lamentation that the current market doesn't really allow much room for creating the visual masterpieces that are currently possible to make. I'm still happy when a new generation of consoles are released, because that means that the PC versions of multiplats will finally get to have some more up-to-date assets to work with.
Zookeeper here, primates and great apes are chill as fuck.
And horny as fuck.
Well, assuming the mountain lion knows to break through the glass to get to me, I'd do the most logical thing. Immediately shit my pants and rub said shit all over my body in hopes that the smell will deter that fucking beast.
>A lone chimp somehow stumbles upon a bunch of niggers with AKs
>no troop in sight
>walks on both legs; a sign that it has bee grown and raised around humans
>despite the chimp "shooting" every where the cameraman doesnt run
actually Bonobos have killed more humans then any other ape.
they honestly kill people in their sleep, like one killed 3 researchers before they realized it was the ape doing it.
How are the hippos anon?
Hippos are dicks as well. They don't fuck around, especially an alpha male protecting his harem. Same with Elephant Seals. Holy fuck those are brutal.
The best thing about this first post is that it is trying to patronize OP. Little does the poster realise there is a xbox 360 in the background thus showing this girl and her family supports consoles
Yeah, but you've gotta remember that how people approach animals factors into that as well.
For example, assume that a hippo is equally as deadly and aggressive as a lion. There are more dumbasses that will approach hippos than lions because of their not-so-lethal image. Thus, hippos will kill more people.
They're actually pretty chill, but I don't fuck with them. Cleopatra gave birth not too long ago but we don't know the gender of the calf because the mother is protective as fuck.
you have no idea what you're talking about. Maybe you're thinking of baboons? Those guys are assholes. Bonobos, however, are very peaceful in every way, any violence between bonobos is extremely rare
>hey monkey, I want you to "rub your face" when I give you an arbitrary signal
See, this is why the age of the youtube is so beneficial.
It allows us to finally debunk these 70s videos.
Baby hippos are so fucking cute

Thanks, I plan on getting a PhD and getting a job as a college professor. How are you contributing to society as a NEET? By getting mad after you got told on the internet?
banobos have all the cruelty/cunning of a human but no morals to hold them back
did you know banobos have underwater rape caves? they drag people down there to and rape them to death
Didn't the western black rhino just go extinct recently?
It fucking amazes me that it took until the 1970's for zoos to figure out that it would be good to make the areas that captive apes live in resemble their habitats. How where they tht fucking retarded?
your average steam baby doesn't understand the concept of unified hardware, they then proceed to bitch and moan about graphics and other stupid bullshit and then try to justify pirating by thinking developers will somehow magically give them the light of day.
Same card here

I need a upgrade though, that 970 is tempting me.

of course you do, that's all your kind does. You go to school for years and years so that you can teacher other idiots who will go to school for years and years and teach other idiots. Its because there are no real jobs out there.
>How are you contributing to society as a NEET?
Just about to graduate from a very prestigious tech university with 5 job offers already, all that pay over 70 grand and from big name companies. Doing cool things that will help others, unlike you.
>Doing cool things that will help others
Delusional college kid confirmed.
be sure to report back when real life smacks you on the ass.
Well I'm no doctor but what I will do from my options still is pretty important. I'm not gonna be saving lives but still.
No I just hate you social science pricks with a passion, literally you are the worst kind of people.
ok but when a banobo gores you to death don't come back here and make posts about it
i seen a banobo take a mans head clear off, we didn't see it, we didn't hear it, and we suer as hell didn't stand a ghost of a chance. the only thing left was jhonsons body and hooting from the jungle

Jesus this kid. Besides not actually telling him what you do you also made yourself look like a pretentious fuck.
May i poor you some more tea m'lady?
>i seen a banobo take a mans head clear off
> we didn't see it,
It's really simple, OP: graphic demanding games cost a lot more to make, so publishers doesn't want to release anything that's too risky, they want that pay check. What these manchildren from vee fail to realize is that technology is the only thing killing games, and PC 4k 120fps games are just going to acelerate this process. We need more inovative games, not hi res textures
Stop with this stupid ass argument and post some animals.
What the fuck are you talking about in our monkey thread?
>Implying that the opinion of the majority makes it 'good'
>Implying that shit tier console technology purchased by the masses doesn't destroy the impetus for optimization of games across all platforms
>Implying my PC is better than...
Good point OP.
Nigga you don't even know how to lie
I will finish this
this will be over soon
they are nothing
nothing in our way
it wont be long
So when the masses likes something that is not enough to tell you that by human standards the product has passed?
If not that then what? your opinion?
and yes if your PC hardware is more advanced than consoles it is obviously better than consoles. That doesn't mean developers are going to make games for your PC and ignore the consoles which have been marketed for gaming and have millions of units sold.
Is that all you need? someone to tell you your obviously more advanced PC is more advanced?
Consoles are made for people who are not tech savvy and what to experience video game entertainment at a reasonable price. These people are called the majority of gamers.
>He's pretty smart for thinking outside the box if you ask me. I mean he's getting all those extra nutrients that weren't absorbed through regular digestion. A fucking Da Vinci.
The vid was uploaded on youtube by a user called "Apes will Rise"
In the actual vid, the AK sounds are really soft too, indicative of post production
Take from that what you will
It's more the combination of awareness and motor skills at play there. The way the second dolphin passes on the bubble and the incredible fast movements are also surreal, especially the way he turns around to look back at the audience afterwards.
Fucking dolphins, man.
Keep in mind that they're not trained to blow bubbles.
Nobody actually thought they could do this or KNEW they could do this until dolphins started getting bored in captivity and starting blowing bubbles and so forth.
See this one?
See how the dolphin turns to his friend and does the universal shoulder check motion of, "Hey dude, check this out".
Never even fucking mind the fact we recently found out Orca whales in captivity will eventually learn to "speak dolphin".
Those are belugas anon
Well, I guess one way to look at it would be if it was an image of a lion eating a chimpanzee, I wouldn't be too bothered. It's survival. But if it was a man killing one, I probably would. If the image the anon posted was a man ripping the head off of a penguin people would react differently.
Every fucking day. Every single fucking day this little faggot just sits here and gives me this stupid look on his face
That's not natural in domesticated animals. If it was a domesticated dog people would be up in arms. If it was one of those African wild dogs, not so much. We have an attachment to dogs and cats. It would be like seeing a picture of a relative being killed, or something like that.
It's been a long time since I've seen it. But I think that was the gist.
I understand what is happening in the seal image. I'm just pointing out how it's a double standard.
True. But no one wants to see it. They get devastated, and video/images are pulled down.
Domesticated dogs attack other dogs all the time. I'm sure there is media somewhere out there if you looked.
Outside of Red Dead Redemption, mountain lions are pretty harmless to humans.
Like literally the only people who have ever been hurt by them in recent history is delerious grannies trying to punch them, and small children.
Mountain Lions will under normal circumstances only attack from behind, and only things much smaller than them - they take no risks.
That said, because of their territory, they also get acclimated to humans being near them and will wander around stealing food/garbage much like bears do.
What about Humans eating dogs? Many cultures eat dogs all the time. When you go to the grocery store, you can see a Chicken all chopped up and prepared for dinner. But if you depict humans killing and preparing a dog, there's outrage.
>Pretending to care about contributing to society
Look guys lets be real here. Neither of you are going to be amazing, nor ground breaking.
Unique maybe, but you both are going into fields that are placeholder roles.
You take a spot and do it because "Someone has to do it!" you'll get sick of it one day,and work at it until you get replaced, quit, or move up.
What I'm saying is, stop bickering.
And there are some people who look down upon that as well (Chickens). A better example would be cows. It's subjective to where someone is living. And we're talking about people on this board, sorry I didn't make this clear.
I got a few minutes before I do something a lot more important than replying to this thread so I'll bite
>games are developed with consoles in mind, rather than PCs
Odd. Everything else seems to be developed with the latest technology in mind. Mobile games wont run on my old cellphones. I dont see new movies being published on VHS. Music doesnt get released on tapes.
So why does games have to be developed on hardware that is outdated?
>What motivation does a developer have to put in MORE effort to produce an outstanding looking game that LESS people will play due to hardware limitations?
Its called having multiple settings. Developers are being lazy because they just program for a console's settings and do fuck all when it gets ported to the PC.
>Why do you think developers OWE you blah blah blah
Why would you assume that? Why is it the industry standard to develop their shit on outdated shit
I play on a gt520
>I don't understand. Cows are sacred to a lot of people. But I've never met someone who thought a chicken was above eating.
most hindus are fully vegetarian.
meaning they don't eat chicken either.
Excluding any meat restricted dieters of course.
Counting vegetarians sort of undermines the entire context of the conversation.
I didn't know that. But then how does that make a cow a better example than a chicken? If a person won't eat either, then their opinion doesn't really matter, now does it? We're talking about people who get outraged over one thing but not the other. If a vegetarian is sensitive to both, then of course we aren't talking about vegetarians.
Brown Rice Kitten Cassarole
There is notthing tastier than kitten meat. Properly cooked, it tastes like a cross between chicken and cornish game hen. For true kitten meat connosiers, there is nothing better than kitten meat from kittens that were skinned alive. My six and eight year old just love it, and not only that, but I get them to help by holding the kittens as I remove their fur just prior to slitting their little throats (the kittens, not my kids:) We can hardly wait as each new littler is born to be able to make this tasty meal. And, by the way, the meat from newly-born kittens makes for great hors d'oeuvres if you're having any kind of get together, though plan ahead and freeze the kitten meat so you have at least four or five litters worth.
2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of asparagus soup
10 3/4 fluid ounces milk
1 1/2 cups water
1 pound chopped cooked kittens (use 6 kittens for a family of four)
1 cup uncooked brown rice
2 (14.5 ounce) cans French cut green beans
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 cup chopped onion
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease a medium casserole dish. In a large bowl, mix the soup, milk, water, chicken, rice, green beans, cheddar cheese, onion, and garlic. Season with parsley, basil, dill, salt, and pepper. Transfer to the prepared casserole dish. Bake 1 1/2 hours in the preheated oven, until rice is tender. If water is absorbed too quickly, add more as needed.
Brighten your plates with kitten paws and tails. Use them to garnish the meal like parsley.
>Why do people think consoles hold gaming back?
Let's see...because up until around 2006 games were getting more complex, depth and technology was progressing a steady pace, and then came to a crashing halt as soon as the malignant wave of "EVERY game must be on consoles" started?
tricky question. how did i come across the meat? is the dog my pet?
i don't want to be chasing no possum around, if i found it on the road then sweet and i won't eat my pet dog. do i know who owns the dog? how hard are they going to try to find it?
Only specific types, the white rhinos mentioned are "Northern White Rhinos". I have no idea what the fuck the difference is between a Northern & any other white rhino though.
dude, think of chicken as a blank slate, you don't want to eat it by itself, you want to add flavour.
try some chicken and mushroom carbonara or marinate the chicken before you cook it.
can i rub his face in the fact that i ate his dog or will he not take it in the lighthearted way the act was committed and call the police?
>Is it not clear that making a console with more beef will cost more money making less people want to buy it due to the financial loss?
My computer cost less than an Xbone and has better hardware, and I built it three years ago
>Does it not make sense that making a game that works on mid tier hardware will make more sales because such a small percentage of people are willing to spill that much money into a PC that contains god tier hardware?
"Working on mid tier hardware" and "working at maximum on mid tier hardware" are two different things.
>Then there are people who complain about buyers remorse stating people say bad games are good to justify the purchase of their console
I don't think that's the case, it's more likely that consolefags just have shit taste. If you're not even savvy enough to build a PC it's unlikely you'll be the type who enjoys anything more than casual games.
>Do you truly believe your opinion is greater than the masses because you THINK your opinion holds more weight than most people
I think my opinion matters more than someone too lazy/stupid to put a computer together.
>Does it not make sense that rather than consoles holding back games it is just your PC is ahead of modern day standards?
$500 three years ago and it's performing on-par with or better than current-gen consoles.
In that time I've spent a grand total of ~$60 on accessories, which is the price of two good controllers for consoles.
>And for the love of god why do people say things like "developers shouldn't be thinking of the money."
You forgot to put a question mark at the end of that question.
A developer should focus on making the sort of games they like. If you're enjoying what you do you'll make a better product. If the higher-ups decide to dumb-down the game and cut things that the people actually making the game were really excited about, you end up with a less enthusiastic and thus less effective workforce.
>Does it not make sense that rather than consoles holding back games it is just your PC is ahead of modern day standards?
>what is scalable engine.
Remember Quake 3?
The game was groundbreaking when it came out, graphically speaking.
You know what's the best about it?
It was so fucking well-coded that you could run it on PC's that were toasters back then.
Modern example of same shit would be new Serious Sam. Looks amazing on good PC's, but it can run on tablets.
Good coding culture is dying and it sucks. It fucking sucks that programmers today are so fucking lazy that they push poorly-documented spaghetti code for job security, it fucking sucks that we're hearing "hurr no need to optimise shit" from same retards. Especially when we've reached the point where heavy single-thread applications are bottleneck for ANY CPU and it won't change.
Also your fallacy lies here:
> Is it not a bigger expression of buyers remorse to call these games bad because they are that much behind your extremely expensive PC leaving you with less content to fully put it to the test?
Because as far as I know PC has wider library than consoles. And these are console fags who call shit like "hurr indies shovelware shit" even when we're talking about good games.
The main reason consoles hold back gaming is because of developers like Ubi who just go fuck it, it's only PC.
I mean they optimise the shit out of the console versions, and then do fuck all with the PC version and say "that's good enough"
Not as much as you think.
Yes they are smart, and the closest form of intelligence next to us, but never has another primate asked a human a question.
They can't understand the concept that someone might know something they don't, a concept that children around the age of 4 begin to process.
The issue isn't consoles themselves, it's the fact that they cause the industry to stagnate due to not 'dieing' when they should. They are mid range now, but in two years or so with 20/16nm GPUs they will be low end specs, and two years after that, etc. etc.
There is also the issue of devs not spending time for the high end PC audience when consoles make up roughly 2/3 of the userbase, and the PC's better than consoles 1/6, or less.
You're kidding right? Dogs and cats were domesticated in the Middle East/Mediterranean , and some cultures even revered them, or at the very least thought them too valuable to harm for no reason.
It's pretty much just east asian cultures who eat dogs/cats.
Microsoft is only doing that to please their shareholder. Shareholders believe that Microsoft is doomed if they continue to doing Steve Ballmer's business without radically changing it.
Yeah you are right that, that Desktops being held back by Microsoft. In a perfect world we would be using Linux, but that's not going happen in a corperate world through.
I agree with him though, chicken really is bland. And extra dry if it's white meat. Even if you cook it in some delicious sauce and it stays moist, could you really say it would be the best choice? For example, chicken Parmesan has both things covered, but veal just improves on it. I never really got why people try to remove the flavor from meat. The best use I've had for it is plain deep frying.
I think it'd have to take something overseasoned to have chicken work better.
Oh sweet Jesus, the sounds. It's like a cat, only twenty times meaner.
>they will never reboot kangaroo jack
Absolutely true. Male kangaroos are known to gang rape other kangaroos, male and female, and they are not real picky about what species they mate with. There is a news story every year or so about kangaroos trying to rape Australians and even aborigines.
"The Australian woman taken by the kangaroo was 37 year old boomerang instructor and professional hiker, Tanya Halerfan of Didyabringabeeralong, Australia . Authorities are still looking for Halerfan. Saxton Dundee of the Australian Coast Guard made a statement to the press stating, “Our search for Miss Halerfan or her remains will continue though we hold no hope of finding either. In past experience with cases of kangaroo kidnapping and sexual assault the victims are usually never found.”
"Researchers studying kangaroo behavior have been noticing an alarming trend in recent years. They have discovered rogue packs of adult male kangaroos gang raping Australians in the outback. Human decoys fitted with tracking devices have been dumped in the outback and observed from helicopter."
"Mister Magoo of the Kangaroo Research Institute of Sidney, has been studying kangaroo behavior for 17 years, and came up with the decoy program. “In every case the decoy was set upon in a short time by groups of kangaroos ranging from 8 to 20 young males. It seems there are gangs of kangaroo predators roaming the outback looking for Australians to sexually assault. The dolphins in each case were observed circling the Australian as one of the group grabbed them with their penis and dragged them down under, then the others followed. You see kangaroos have a prehensile penis, it is full of powerful muscles and they can wrap it around objects, such as an Australian wrist, ankle, neck, or waist. One could compare it to a boa constrictor or an elephant trunk….The decoys never resurfaced in any of the studies…. We tracked one of the decoys to a kangaroo cave where it had been repeatedly raped and torn apart by the kangaroos. ”
"There are at least 14 cases of kangaroo rape reported each year in Australia, these usually occur near the woods where victims are able to escape before they can be dragged into a kangaroo rape cave. There is no real estimate of how many deaths are the result of kangaroo rape each year as many of these occur in the outback where there are few eyewitnesses if any."
I dont see how it's frightening, it's amazing to watch really. I mean you have to realize that humans had to go through that at one point, the orangutang just had the convenience of not needing to make the rag before hand
You forgot to replace Dolphin with Kangaroo here, but good job still
Their military is probably about 300,000,000 strong. That's pretty much Canada's and America's total population combined, that and China's economy is better than most countries in the world
because it's pretty much true.
Consoles need to have exclusive titles, which splinters the gaming community unnecessarily.
Just look at all the Nintendo vs Sega vs Sony vs Microshit threads.
The divide and conquer cancer is how they make their money.
>Why do people think consoles hold gaming back?
Forgotten about it already?
Eating dogs is on the same level as eating humans. That shit is fucked up.
I know a lot of edgelords will try to justify it but it's really fucking sick and i'm not even a dog person.
Except cows were domesticated and bred as food over the course of human civilization. Dogs were not.
Because fuck you nigga. If I had the power i'd kill every single one of them along with cannibals, murderers, war criminals, corrupt politicians, and yo mama.
I ain't trying to live up to high morals or standards for you. I just think it's fucked up and sick. Go justify your pussy to yourself.
Consoles aren't really holding back gaming. Lazy devs are. Do people honestly think consoles can't run games at atleast 45 fps consistently? Hell even Bayo 2 runs at 50-55fps almost all the time in the actual gameplay.
Ninja Gaiden Black ran at fucking 60fps consistently with almost no hiccups.
>Eating dogs is on the same level as eating humans
Chinks eat humans too
I hope ebola makes it over to China and wipes out half their population. Absolutely disgusting.
Yeaaaaahh games are being developed for the latest gaming consoles ya douchnozzle. Whether or not the hardware is up to your standard is irrelevant, they are the latest consoles and are made solely with gaming in mind. PC's are not solely for gaming plus 75% of its users torrent anyway so developers focus on the Playstation's and the Xbox's where piracy is dramatically less consistent.
Your probably going to think I'm trying to say PC's are worse for gaming then consoles but that is not at all what I'm saying. They just aren't solely for gaming
Iphones hold the biggest library of apps.
They are also NOT the most technologically advanced mobiles available. Your argument is incorrect and requires you too research before you speak and make a fool of yourself
>plus 75% of its users torrent anyway so developers focus on the Playstation's and the Xbox's where piracy is dramatically less consistent.
I'm laughing my ass off so hard right now
>they are the latest consoles and are made solely with gaming in mind
And yet every time a console game comes up, all the developers say is "look at these graphics".
Consoles aren't holding gaming back, graphics are.
If we still used PS2 graphics then the modern consoles could push 1080p60 and perhaps even higher resolutions like 1440p60 or 2160p30 while simultaneously costing about as much as a PS2 game to make. I firmly hold that game design principles haven't changed much since the 6th gen with the exception of needless casualization to make sure that the audience for a game is wide enough - if you can bring budgets down by not paying attention to trivialities like graphics and focusing on gameplay, you can cater to all kinds of niches in a cost effective way like we were able to at the height of the PS2's popularity.
So one should remain stuck more than a decade in the past for the sake of resolution and fps? Crysis focused itself as a glorified engine demo and pushed graphics beyond the limits of average consumer hardware, yet it still had great gameplay and a whole new gimmick for an FPS, along with very open levels. You can have graphics and gameplay, there's no reason you shouldn't, but the audience that is being catered to now doesn't care for gameplay, hell, nowdays they don't even care for graphics, they want to watch a movie, except have a controller in their hand and press a few buttons.
Not for the sake of resolution and FPS, but for the sake of budget and focus on gameplay. The industry is insanely bloated and budgets need to be brought down somehow, and the two things which can safely be slashed while still producing quality content are advertising and graphics.
Cheaper games mean fewer people have to buy them while still turning a profit. Niche games - games which don't need to cater to the common idiot - can be made if there's more confidence that enough people will buy it for it to be worthwhile.
Crysis cost a lot to make, just like it's sequels and Ryse. Look where Crytek is now.
Crytek ended up where they were since they made abysmal company decisions, NOT because they blew their money on graphics. There are still plenty of niche 'indie' games out there, which follow the low budget philosophy. Marketing is the killer for budget, not graphics.
>Blame catering to casuals who don't like video games.
They only do that because they have to justify their budget, which is inflated by marketing and graphics.
The problem now is that publishers are too shy to take any major risks because only a few flops are enough to tank the company. There's no innovation.
because consoles are just pcs that are restricted and relegated to a single specification. while this is good for the purposes of having every game they build for that system work for that console like it would on every other console, and allows developers to squeeze every bit of power and sometimes create very tight optimizations for those consoles, this is something that could still be done if the console was simply more open. the OSes of these consoles are just restricted store frontends. realistically, it's like having something like steam on every console as the entire operating system. what consoles do is breed artificial competition and cause a schism between people who play the same games, for the sake of making the money through console sales. it's marketing and business, nothing else. this is coming from an idort.
Please stop misdirecting your hate of today's design scheme towards graphics, they in no way have as much of an impact financially as marketing. TORtanic cost 300 million and it looked like absolute ass. Destiny looks passable at 500 million and the first Crysis only cost 22 million.
