Last Thursday, May 7, we saw videos of various games for Xbox Series X in the Inside Xbox. Much of them included fragments of gameplay>, longer or shorter, representative of what the game will look like in the next generation of consoles. Geoff Keighley, presenter of The Game Awards and organizer of the Summer Game Fest, one of the alternatives that have emerged to the canceled E3 2020, published a survey on Twitter after the event asking about how the fans rated satisfaction with the games shown: A, B, C, D or lower. More than 40% of the 83,550 participants chose the last option.
The survey served as a starting point for an opinion piece published in IGN where it is argued that although the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 games will be "prettier than the games running in this generation", the generational jump will not be as great. The reasons, according to the North American medium, are two: on the one hand, that with Xbox One X and PS4 Pro several steps were climbed, so that the new jump would be shorter; and that the new consoles will focus on improvements that go beyond the visual, such as reduced load times and improvements in artificial intelligence.
"But people should also be prepared for the fact that most games next-gen unveiled over the next few months will look as if they could be games of the present generation, "they reasoned in the op-ed piece. Again, Keighley turns to Twitter, mentioning the text of IGN
It is usual that the first titles that take advantage of the technical potential of a new console are the games developed by the console manufacturers themselves. Microsoft show the first works of Xbox Game Studios in July
