Poll Time: Next-gen consoles and more!

I like how Crytek just said what pretty much everyone knows:

“It’s impossible to package $2,000-$3,000 worth of hardware into a mainstream—let’s say $500—console,” Yerli says. “I’m not saying they are $500 consoles. They may launch a console at $2,000, but the consumer pricing is usually much lower than that. So, given consumer pricing, and given the cost of production of a gamer PC and the amount of wattage and power it needs, which is like a fridge, it’s impossible.”

Crysis 3 Looking Good

“The whole modular way you can design a PC today with two, three, or four graphics cards in them, and you can water-cool them and overclock to infinity, that didn’t exist even six or seven years ago,” he says. “You just bought one or maybe two graphics cards and then you were super enthusiastic.

“It’s very difficult to compete with that. People have these massive nuclear power plants standing in their rooms that will run your games really fast. It’s hard to compete with.”

Seriously, I used to own a PS3 for over a year, sure their exclusive games are very fun but when you look at it from a PC gamer perspective (aka the graphics are important too) you just can’t stand that the current consoles have 512MB of RAM (like my phone lol).

Anyway new consoles are surely gonna be big (PS4 announcement today?!), but I was wondering if they would push the no-used-games concept. What do you guys think?

Are next-geen consoles going to introduce no-used game policy?

    how many of those who earn enough to afford a €3k PC is going to OC? my mobo is about 5 years..cpu(40% OC from the first launch) and ram about 4– my newest components are a 2TB hdd and a 1.5yrs old ati card 6870.. that card was like 160€ back in the day… im playing all games in full hd at high to max details.. why would I spend 3000 for a new pc.. would it give me that much better experience?
    the specs of the new generation make sense .. 500$ is already too much for a console.. who would buy something with total of 5launch titles and no backward compatibility for 2000$ lol

    btw.. ps3 has 256mb of ram..i read it cant even playback music while playing games .. xbox has 512 but i think its shared with videomemory..anyway FUCK MICROSOFT.. and my old samsung wave has 384ram and its stupidly slow

    Why are we naked?

    Also, no, that would be stupid. If 50% of the sales come from the used games, then 50% of the first sales will be reselled. I don’t think editors really want to cut half of their own sales to prevent them to be reselled.
