It is without doubt that RAM or memory is about the most important item in a console. When there is enough RAM in a system it allows the developers to try different kinds of tricks and do many things there want to do. With enough RAM in a system developers can do better graphics, physics, AI and a lot more. But RAMs are very expensive these days and console makers have to keep the cost down to be able to make a console that is affordable for the consumers. Console makers will have to choose between a powerful console and an expensive one. In the end something has got to give.
Do your still remember the Killzone 2 pre-rendered video that was showed at E3 2005? My jaw dropped the very first time I saw that video. To say it blew everything out of the water would be an understatement judging from the reaction it got from the media and everyone else who saw it. Now, that was barely 6 years ago and it looks like we are already heading for another generation of the console war.
Now that we are just a few days away from the PS Vita launch in Japan, let us not forget that the Nintendo 3DS didn't do too well when it launched at the early part of this year and when that happened Nintendo had to lower the price of the 3DS to be able to sell more of their portables to the consumers and gain back their market share. While there are people who blamed the poor performance on lack of games on the portable there others who blamed it all on the insurgence of new and powerful mobile phones that seem to have taken over the market of late.
With the launch of the Wii U, Nintendo finally ventured into HD gaming. This is something the PS 3 and Xbox 360 have been doing for a very long time now. The Nintendo Wii was not capable of full HD gaming when it came out so it was left behind as the other consoles gained more ground in the console HD gaming race. But, now that the Wii U has launched with the ability to do this right out of the box is it too late to the party? I hope not.
The next generation of gaming is upon us and this year will probably be the last we hear of rumors with regards to the PlayStation 4 console specs and final reveal. One thing we can learn from all the rumors and speculation going around these days is that the signs are showing that we are likely to see the console arrival sooner than later. I tell you the truth, the PlayStation 4 (PS Omni or PS Orbis) will have to be able to do 4K HD gaming for it to be future proof.
As we draw nearer to the launch of the next round of powerful console upgrades from the likes of Microsoft and Sony, the profound effect of this is that when these consoles land on our retail shelves they won't come cheap and because of how much they will cost many gamers will have to make the choice of buying one to forgo the other completely or wait till when the price drops in order to be able to buy at a later date.
The NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 is the next generation of NVIDIA's award-winning 3D glasses. The glasses has seen some major improvement in its features such as a sleek new design, a 20% increase of the lenses that allows for a wider viewing area and an increase in external light blocking. The glasses are lighter and more comfortable to wear than the old models.
I think it's about time we start talking about the next-gen games that will raise the standard and set the bar so high it becomes a topic of discussion all across the internet like the way Killzone 2 pre-rendered video did way back in 2005. As a lover of everything 3D graphics and computer animation I was never so excited about anything that had to do with video games as much as I did when I saw that video on the web. Some of the things that I really liked in that video was the facial animation of the characters, their body movement, the way the enemy AIs reacted when they are shot and when there was an explosion and the Physics of debris scattering all over the place when there was an explosion. All that and a whole lot of other things happening on the screen at the same time blew me away.
