It would appear that Moore's Law! does not necessarily correlate to better games.
One would think that if developers had more time to develop on specific systems games would get better, but going "mainstream" seems to have the opposite effect regardless of technical abilities.

your both right. i love how nintendo innovated with the hand movements, microsofts only answer was the kinect, and so far so far the only "fun" games on kinect are dancing and the kinectimals.
but 360 and ps3 are so outdated and old now that its not even fun anymore....games have to be dumbed down just to dont lag on the consoles. and when a console game is ported to a pc it lags like crazy because of the bad porting.

[quote="karshinkoff":2cg93w2c]its only months until ps4 or xbox460 comes out with superHD (you know)[/quote:2cg93w2c]
I doubt that we'll see a PS4 any time soon.
They've reached 50 million units with the PS3, and it's thought that it will be several years before Sony decide to make another console.
I expect Microsoft to release a new console though, even though the 360 is selling well, and the Kinect is flying out of the stores.

I too would like to see one console made by all 3 companies.
They could share the cost of making it (they sell at a loss for each of them anyway, so that would be plus for all of them), and then share the license revenue for the games.

Of course, we come to the same point I made earlier.
The leading company wouldn't want to share, and those lagging behind would.

Microsoft had the share of the market by releasing the 360 earlier than it's competitors, and wouldn't have wanted to share that with the others, but probably would now.
Sony would have laughed at the thought of sharing with Nintendo during the PS2 years, but I'm sure they'd love a third of the market right now.
And Nintendo would have loved to have made a deal with Microsoft and Sony before they released the Wii, but there's no way they'd consider giving up their lead now.

I don't think it will ever happen, which is a shame.
Basically, they're all winning (I sound like Charlie Sheen!).

Personally, besides the obvious benefits of one console to rule them all :), I'd love to see it happen just to shut the fanboys up. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Krush.

If someonehas 100% of the market then he can set highest price, so id on't think this would be a good idea.

The prices aren't controlled that way for video games.
I've never seen any of them reducing game prices to compete with each other.
That tends to be done at store level.

Or do you mean the consoles themselves?
That could be a worry, although I wouldn't pay more than the 200-300 I'm prepared to pay for them now, so they'd have to be sensible about the price.

Of course, another problem is that if they all banded together to make one console, someone somewhere would see a gap in the market as a rival, and release their own console.

SEGA!!!

Really? :S
*Pats my lovely ps3*

I guess I'm just not enough of a technophile to notice (not meant in a bad way, I'm just not that knowledgable about it).

I hope the current consoles last a little longer... now that they have built up a good library of games.

Sega's too busy suckling off of Nintendo's teat right now. It's actually kind of sad, probably the worst case of "if you can't beat them, join them" that I've ever seen :P.

I've read that one of the Team Sonic developers openly admitted that for Sonic Colors they changed the look of the game to be a bit more like Nintendo's Mario series, in order to appeal to fans of Mario. Talk about whipped.

My experience has been the complete opposite. I've been selling off my boxed games and moving them to steam because it's so easy. :?
