I am not very technically minded when it comes to hardware specs, but I watched the video on this http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/gaming/n...3-trailer.html and the graphics looked very meh, and no better than a decent 360 game

I had assumed there would be a massive improvement in how games looked, like between the original Xbox and the 360? Or ios the game I linked to just a bad example?

Unless you are a hardcore geek the graphics of xbox and ps4 won't be much of a leap as previous consoles.

I think even a casual gamer will notice the number of on screen assets, resolution increase and smoother frame rates but you are right that texture quality and models have reach a peak. The photo realistic ideal is a long way off.

Probably be a similar situation in the difference between VHS,DVD and Blu Ray.
The leap from VHS to DVD was more noticeable.

Textures will be better, no scaling means a sharper image and details like smoke ect will be greatly improved, they won't need to pile on the DOF to hide pop in either so everything should look a lot clearer.

This is fallout 3 on the PC http://fallout3.nexusmods.com/images...1344372597.jpg the game is over 4 years old and uses a third party app to force those effects, compare that to the current gen. The next gen will have those type of effects built in so should look even better.

I think that wasn't the best example, video quality was ok and it was more cartoony than a game going for realism.
Caller Doody aka "Call of Duty" may be a better example.

Yes, massively so. Native 1080p will make a huge difference alone but as developers get to grips with the hardware we will see some truly outstanding looking games (already are, check out Forza 5!). Don't bother comparing the specs to PC as the system architecture is completely different and geared to take full advantage of the hardware. Consoles are far more efficient than PC when it comes to gaming.

Just look at the equivalent specs of the 360 and what games it is still managing to play today. X1 is nothing short of a gamign beast.

Can't get over how good Dead Rising 3 looks, and if it wasn't for the button prompts on Ryse I'd swear it was all pre-rendered CGI.

I watched Ryse from the dash board and i thought the same. It may even sway me back towards the xbox one.

If I want realism I don't play games, I go outside! Games aren't and never should be about realism; if and when that happens, they cease to be games!

As usual, some gamers think a different gloss on a product makes the game better to play; all I've heard so far as sequels and similar games to what we've always been playing, just in different resolutions!

Whilst I disagree about your views on the realism, I agree with your second point. I expected more emphasis to be placed on new IP's. That's not to say there wasn't any shown, there were, I just expected a bit more.

If you want good graphics then buy a PC or PS4.

People aren't saying I only want better graphics.

Also, if you are happy with how a game plays then you should want something better to look at.

I doubt it. They never pushed the 360 to its limits. Many a times they never use the full disk capacity.

Indeed, and you only have to look at how popular Borderlands is to see that photorealism isn't what makes a game, it is the game play - hell, I've been playing Manic Miner, Hunchback and Kokotoni Wilf on a Spectrum Emulator recently and they are still great challenging games.
