Comments on The real cost of polygons

I didn’t cry when Grace died, but it also seemed hackneyed and cliche to an extreme.

Given the characteristics of the PS4, I’m thinking that the not-so-rumored SteamBox is going to be the winner in the long term. Great games, great distribution model, a company that actually gives a shit about its customers (AND employees, AND third-party developers), and a focus on actually innovating in games, not just adding more polygons to the same old boring crap.

That was my point, actually, though now I see it was unclear. It’s not that all those SFX prevent the audience from focusing on the story, characters, etc.; they prevented the creators from putting enough work into those aspects of the movie.

And we’ll see about competing consoles. The Wii also started out beating the beefier consoles by being simply fun, and then Nintendo lost their way. The Ouya, too, comes with a lot of promise, but the history of open consoles so far does not make me optimistic about it. I’ll wait and watch. 🙂
