    Don't expect raytracing at home for another 10 years at least.
    720 will have to be sold fairly cheaply, we won't get supercomputers into our homes anytime soon.

    This comment reminds me when N64 should have terminotor 2 level of graphics.

    I smell bullsh1t

    Its just the hype machine spouting nonsense like it does with every console gen.

    After the PS3 build up I swore to never be sucked in again.

    Until I SEE it, then I will believe it, until then it's a no go...

    And even if it did, I would still prefer my pc to it anyday, the pc is the ULTMATE machine which can be upgraded over and over again whereas consoles cannot...

    Yeah, just like the current generation was supposed to run at 1920x1080 resolution at 60fps and instead we got 960x540 @ 30fps- which they somehow get away with advertising as 720p. I wouldn't complain so much if 4xMSAA was standard so the jaggies wouldn't make my eyes bleed or if the 30fps was sustained instead of dropping to 10 at times. AMD, Sony and Microsoft should try to go one day without lying.

    Marketing.

    Unless PCs are also capable of performing like Avatar within the upcoming year (assuming the new XBox uses the very latest tech, which it wont anyway), theres no way the next XBox will be near this capable.
    The 360 was a year behind already at its time of release.
    PCs arent even close to doing Avatar quality right now.

    Given the power footprint (Watts) of consoles, theres no way the new console will be able to match the PC, even if it can use the same technology.
    TDP and therefore clock speeds will have to be scaled back somewhat to fit within power use specs, at a minimum.

    Perhaps what Robison means is that the XBox 720 will be able to play back video with the same quality as Avatar.

    When it was first announced, the PS2 was said to have graphics on par with Toy Story (or similar at least)....

    Wont be for years and years and years, just look at that Unreal demo, 2x 580's in SLi, and they couldn't break 30fps, and that was just a camera panning around some scenes lol, so you can imagine what it would be like if that was a full blown game, it'd be running at about 1 frame a year, so when do you think we'll have the power to run Avatar like gfx games at decent frame-rates :D

    Right what is he smoking? cause I want some it .... For that to happen in CONSOLE said CONSOLE gone need one of them 800$ gpu cards that are Dual or SLI with 1gb + gpu ram , and a CPU that is quad core going at 3.5ghz+ and more then 4 gbs of system ram. And seeing as Console are not gona cost more then 399-599$ imo ever that will not happen.

    Again I want what the guy is smoking:banana:

    Actually, my current system meets all of your criteria, and it's not even close to handling Avatar graphics.... :nerd:

    I do agree though, this guy is smoking some good stuff! :infinity:

    Oh yes,the fables start to build up for the 95% of people who will actually buy this.
    It can render Avatar like quality renders,but at 1 fpy(frame per year).
    This goes beyond anything stated until now for the next gen lol.
    Who knows,maybe you can even become a Na-vi with the new Xbox :)

    Well you guys are forgetting that when the PS3 and 360 had debuted on the market, with each sale a console sold, Sony and Microsoft were loosing money by 300-400 hundred dollars since the hardware was expensive to produce back than. They cut even from the negative to positive cash flow mainly on games and more so when production costs dropped lower than the console consumer cost, as it is today. So, an xbox3 or ps4 could easily have video hardware in 2012 that's valued at $600 for the consumer. As a matter of fact the 360 graphics card was far superior than what the computer market had to offer to us back in 2005 and even later on, as it was mainly a supercharged x1900xt but also able to process tessellation alot of other features in-game that came only later to PC games.

    If they mean 1920x1080 at 30FPS, with 2xAA, and 0xAF, with short draw distance STILL...I wouldn't be boasting and bragging...
