PS5 and Xbox Series X Will Hit a Graphics Dead-End

  • The PS5 and Xbox Series X may not have the big leap in graphical fidelity that we're used to with previous console generations.
  • While we’re sure to get a whole bunch of new games, a developer has warned to expect less of an update to the graphics.
  • Sure, games looked better, but it was nothing compared to the leaps we saw before.
  • While the PS5 and Xbox Series X might not look better graphically, that doesn’t mean things, in general, won’t improve.
  • It’s likely that the next generation will allow for other improvements besides graphics.
  • With a lack of improvement of graphical fidelity, the actual visual design of games will be front and center.
  • It’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking that newer hardware means a jump in graphics.
  • This means better AI, deeper systems and generally more realistic worlds rather than visuals.
