This is more a question of your guys opinions on the next generation of consoles.
I believe personally that improving graphics somewhat cannot be called innovations in games. I play consoles and PC I have had HD graphics for a long time that is not why I play consoles so I want to know what you guys think about where each console is innovating on the current gen of platforms.
Just to let you know I got the Xbox last time round because of Xbox live, something at the time I believed to be a real innovation on the last generation of consoles excluding the dreamcast which I also owned but could almost be put into the same gen as PS1 and N64.
This time round I am obviously getting the Wii as I feel it is the only one really innovating in any real way, I mean sure we can up the graphics to 1080p but I run games higher than that on my PC, and on looking at the back of Xbox360 boxes it seems that 1080i is the highest available.
I think that microsoft however has made a smart move in basically making the xbox a gaming PC at an affordable price. PS3s innovations I assume to be Blue Ray although I am not sure how increasing the storage capacity is an innovation just as I do not see improvements in graphics that way, but I am probably missing something on PS3s philosophy. The Wii's innovation is fairly obvious using a greater interactivity to games to immerse players more whilst pricing themselves completly out of competition of PC's.
With all this in mind how do you feel about the next gen, the pros and cons of each system and what would you like to see in the future? If the Wii is hugely successful then the way is set to increase immersion into games instead of eye candy, how do you see this taking place?
