    Consoles have never been able to match the graphics of a gaming PC. This isn't something new, most people should know this already. But, I still think that the PS4/Xbox One will still be able to offer very good graphics. BF4 running on a PS4 for example looks pretty much identical to the PC version.

    I file this statement under the "no **** Sherlock" header. I'm a little curious why Nvidia needed to say this.

    Ah.. I see .... so this is why drivers have been sub-par lately...

    They've been too busy spending R & D money on finding the best way to state the GOD DAMN OBVIOUS!

    Ahem... So yeah..

    Nvidia was not approached for any of the new consoles because they lack an x86 license. That being said it's not good business for them to be appearing to fall behind don't be surprised if Maxwell comes out a bit sooner than we thought.

    I´m not an elder in pc gaming; been in the business for about 10 years (?). But tell me, was there any time in the past where consoles looked better than pc? I don´t think so...

    On the flip side consoles don't cost £900 just for one component like one of nvidia's cards...

    Same here, they have to somehow try to bring themselves in the spotlight again with everything that is going on at AMD. They should rather work more on their drivers and maxwell than giving out such captain obvious'esque interviews/press releases. :banana:

    I remember when the original WORMS game came out, i had it on my PC on floppydisk, and my best friend had recently bought it on the playstation 1 on CD, it loaded faster, came with awesome cut scenes which my version did not. Not to mention all the 3d-beatemups and racers that were coming out with the PS1.

    graphically speaking though, they were never truly superior, they just had a significantly better game catalog back in those times.

    I miss playing Dune II battle for arakis :p

    While I do like nvidia products, they're seriously butthurt about being excluded from the 3 major consoles. I'm not sure what their status is on Steam's upcoming console, but if Valve chooses AMD then that's another burn to nvidia. On the other hand, nvidia has of the best graphics for mobile platforms, and they're also taking a much greater lead in servers than AMD (in a GPU perspective).

    What I really don't understand about nvidia, and actually some people on these forums, is they think that the mediocrity of console hardware is directly scalable to the performance of PC hardware, which is simply put, retarded. Consoles get away with crappy weak hardware due to micro-optimizations that only apply to that 1 system, whereas games for PC have to be generalized to work on any platform with the slightest semblance of compatibility. On the other hand, developers have got really lazy the past several years and games are not anywhere near as optimized as they could be. But, with PC, XB1, and PS4 all being x86 based with the option for Radeon graphics, I suspect devs will be more inclined to work on optimizations since they will have a LOT less to tweak.

    Only saying this because they're not involved with the new consoles. Very immature.

    And again, it's because consoles can't be upgraded in the way a PC can. If they could it'd be great, they would truly be little simplified (installation wize) gaming PCs.

    Yeah, I'm starting to think this also. "Don't be STUPID and buy a console! Pfftt, buy a NVIDIA CARD, you bitch."
