The title of the article says:Xbox 720, PS4 Graphics Could Get Close To Avatar's Quality, Says Geomerics.
I don't care about lighting and stuff if I read that to me that means if I fire up CoD on my Xbox 720 the game will look like I am playing the Avatar movie.

Since PC's are way ahead of consoles on the technology side, simply put if my PC can not produce graphics that looks like the Avatar movie and runs 30-60fps on 1080p resolution, I am sure as heck the consoles will not be able to do this either.
Ones I see games that look like Avatar and the consoles have specs like PCs and can run those games at decent frame rates I will believe the claims. Until then this sounds like utter BS to me, to get the first person shooter console kids to get their panties in the hunch over the next consoles.

SpectralMeat, I don't care what the title of the article is, it's clearly written to get hits. And it's working. The actual guy the article speaks with does not say the graphics will be close to Avatar, he says the lighting will be.
So it's your fault for not reading the damn article, not the fault of the guy making the claim.

This is way anything works around here:
1) A guy says something, based on his experience
2) Some idiot distorts it into a headline that will generate pagehits
3) Blue finds the headline and posts it here, to generate pagehits and discussion (which leads to pagehits)
4) People that don't read the article flip out over what the headline says without putting any critical thought behind it

Saying "the lighting will be close to Avatar" is vague and meaningless. It's nothing to get worked up about. But people will keep getting worked up over "console kids," acting like kids themselves.
Music for the discerning:
