Neil Thompson, BioWare's director of art and animation, has stated that Microsoft's upcoming next-generation Xbox console won't be a massive upgrade in technology as the Xbox 360 was over the first Xbox console.

The next generation of Xbox hardware won't be quite as barn-storming an upgrade as Xbox 360 was over the

Oh wow this is shocking.. wah WAH!!!!!!!

PC hardware, like smartphone tech, moves so fast while consoles are what Apple was like a couple/few years back: dinosaurs which h/w refreshed soo slooww..

So it took 360->720 7+ years to be only, marginally-better? ha ha ha..

Well.. they do have to keep the costs low @ $300-500 but wait.. the h/w back at the 360's release should be utterly pathetic compared to whats available now + be cheaper so WTF?

Anyway. goes back to being NOT a shocker. Typical the h/w doesn't keep up when we're talking consoles all the while ensuring a cost-effective price-point. [backs to playing on PC which, oh.. rigghhtt.. MAKES ME MONEY TOO!!!!!!]

Why would you expect it to be leaps and bounds better? Doesn't make any sense what so ever. Xbox 360 is more than sufficient for today's games. A more improved 360/720 will be sufficient and still keep killing PC. Take a look at console sales vs PC sales. PC is and has been the loser for a while, lots and a growing amount of console games still ported to PC not the other way around. Enjoy your PC like I will for gaming for now but I PC will continue to dwindle as we continue forward. Android, tablets are the last knife in PC's back. Now they got these mini-android devices that hook up right to your TV and a lot of games are keyboard and mouse supported. Even nVidia is getting more into android and gaming. PC is dying more and more every day. Bring on the you're an [censored] shit and whatever else you got. I enjoy reading your denial crap and stuff.

Its only limited if the game devs say so. Anyway, I'm looking forward to see what the 720 or PS4 hold if they can keep eye-candy and frames good even without the power under the hood. Code it well for those plats then sure however its always nice for us PC players to have more 'graphic and gameplay' features (ie. Bioshock Infinity) verses what they are limited on consoles (cheaper more portable alternative of course).

Ya Bioshock Infinity will be good (hopefully) if what they are saying is the truth.
