The PlayStation 3 is (apparently) about to meet its match in the form of a successor, a console so powerful it will probably bend space time and end the universe as we know it.
No, not really, but it does seem strange that a new console is set to be revealed (supposedly), despite current hardware being so graphically capable (at least when stacked up to other console games -- let's not start the whole "PC vs console" debate).
Although, it's probably time to start moving onto new hardware when developers maximise a console's power during development. Sure, developers are now so comfortable with the hardware that they can spend more time tinkering with gameplay mechanics, but, ERMAHGERD, the graphix!
All this talk about the PlayStation 4, it's time-bending capabilities, and upcoming PS3 exclusives got me thinking: just how far have PS3 games evolved graphically since the console launched in late-2006?
