No beamer, the xbone and ps4 will not have a drastic improvement as you saw with the last gen, not even close. These new consoles were only filling a gap in hardware specs, they are sub-par Pc's in architecture posing as 'next gen' consoles.

You will, however, see major improvements with the wii U over time. Not an endorsement for you haters, just telling it the way it is.

Oh, and the Wii U outsold the Xbone the week before Christmas. Again no endorsement, just facts : )

This makes no sense.
How, exactly, is the WiiU hardware so much more special? Because it's less like a PC?

Yes, new architecture, dev time needed, optimizations, blah blah blah -- same as it always has been with consoles for the most part, common knowledge. You just made the same comment about the old consoles, but now it makes no sense?

What really confuses me is that people have been complaining for years that PCs are capable of so much more, but held back by consoles. Now the consoles are significantly more powerful, and close to the average PC, and you're saying that this won't improve graphics?

Which is it - were graphics held back by old consoles, or are they at their limit and won't improve at all?

I know of no one, ever, in my circle of hardcore pc gamers and clanners who ever complained about PC's being held back by consoles, what a ridiculous notion. Sounds like a console chat on xbox live, certainly not among PC gamers.

And graphics always improve, they are just textures -- nothing special needed. It's everything else that matters (ai, physics, optimizations, engines, etc).
Yours truly,
