That gets a "meh" from me. However, I hope what he's saying is true
like the god of war 3 jaffe thread. I agree.

A hardware platform is static yes, but software is not. It can always be refined, optimized, and expanded. Yes, there is a physical limit, but hardware is at a point where its limit far exceeds what the software is capable of. As you inferred, advanced multi-threaded programming is still lagging.

Several? Looking forward to seeing them. Though obviously the PS3's exclusives will only get better too. I think that Uncharted 2 and GOWIII will end up looking better than KZ2.

Not always, only to a certain point.

Threading was possible before but it was really only time-slicing the CPU. This is the first gen where we have consoles with multiple threads. I'm not sure if Gears 2 used more then a single physical thread or not but KZ2 certainly does.

Nevertheless, there are still limitations to the GPU, the Memory, optical storage and more.

That's the same site that also spams you and sites no sources, this is what i'm talking about... WHO said it. I don't believe this publication based of this crap.

If they did say it they are delusional.

Not quite what was said, but accuracy is over-rated, right?

A spokesman said it would be in the same narrative tradition as Star Wars and LOTR, not the "same level".

It's all about context.

Exciting news... Only time will tell if it's true or not, I suppose. I hope that whatever new exclusives on the way are original intellectual properties. I'm not very interested in seeing more sequels.
