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.

Ahh that clears that up, and for the record the Narrative in Too Human 1 is absolutely just like Star Wars 1, pretty shitty.

The 360 could have games behind closed doors that nobody knows about so you never know.
There making N64 games again? Since I don't think they have made a AAA game since MS bought them.

If they did say it they are delusional.
Yeah, not a big fan of the nameless spokesperson but MS has to have something to announce. Their fall lineup is pretty weak at the moment so I wouldn't be surprised to see these announcements around E3 similar to Gears of War 2 last year. As far a surpassing anything to date, I don't care, I just want good exclusives with great gameplay which trumps graphics IMO.

No argument there.

I'm speaking in relation to the current generation's hardware and its theoretical limits. I have no disagreement with your overall point; never did.

Everyone is always so hard on Microsoft to make announcements, yet it just bites them in the ass if they do. They mention Alan Wake a couple years ago, and everyone is calling fail on it since they haven't announced a date.

I actually like their strategy the past few years of big announcements at E3 of shit that actually comes out that year. Do people really want years and years of waiting for a game?

MS always plays close to the chest, so while this article is probably some shitty blog looking for hits, there is some truth to it.

Game developpers are not inventing new programming languages. Nevertheless, if you truly want to optimize your code, you get down into the Assembly. Higher level languages do not necessarily optimize code better. Whether you program with an object oriented language like Java or C# or a top-down design and linear language like COBOL does not change the fact that code is still limited by it's hardware.

I think its fair to assume that the 360 has been tapped more considering its been out a year longer, its much easier to develop for and there has been very little graphical improvement in titles for the last 2 years.

I'm pretty sure you will never see anything as good as Killzone 2 or Gran Turismo 5 Prologue on the 360 and I'm also pretty sure that those titles are nowhere near pushing the extent of what the PS3 is capable of.
