Epic Says Next-Gen Graphics Leap Like ‘Batman Going From Adam West To Dark Knight Rises’

Mark Rein, the VP of Unreal Engine 4 studio Epic Games, says that next generation console visuals will be the graphical equivalent of Adam West’s Batman to Christian Bale’s Dark Knight Rises. Rein says that once you’ve succumb to next generation visuals it’s extremely difficult to go back to current generation games.

“Pushing the visuals will always be important. Humans evolve very slowly (over millions of years) but their tastes evolve at exponentially faster rates. This is true for pretty much all forms of entertainment and media.”

“During my own brief lifetime thus far I’ve gone from watching the Adam West Batman shows of the ‘60s to watching Christian Bale’s Dark Knight today. It’s hard to go back to watch the older series, and people generally don’t.”

“Their expectations evolve as new technologies become commonplace. Think of what mobile games looked like before the iPhone came out, and that was only five years ago!”

  1. Just no. There will obviously be a small jump, but if companies like Sony and Microsoft take the jump to things like 4KTVs, they’re going to lose cash, and fast.

      4. it will be noticeable, but it wont be dramatic. i mean when i play a game on my pc in comparison to the 360, you can really tell that the textures models, and overall gameplay is a lot smoother, but not to an extent that you cant tell that they are the same game. if anything, i would rather have the console manufacturers, and game developers to focus more on actually designing the games so that they can actually run well, rather than the graphics. being able to run a game at a constant 60fps makes a huge difference over a consoles constantly frame rate dropping from 30 fps and lower.

      5. Don’t expect 1080p @60fps in the next gen. Maybe more 1080p native games, but not both.

        These games are not exactly fast or cheap to develop at such a resolution AND FPS, and I’m almost certain such a thing won’t be standard for the forseeable future. Maybe the generation after. But I expect to see 720p @60fps OR, 1080p at 30fps as the usual from next-gen games.

        Also, a more expensive and better quality TV would beg to differ with that last bit.

  4. The main difference between the two is that Adam West’s Batman was in a show that was bright and colourful, whereas The Dark Knight is all about being dark and gritty.

    Given Epic’s love all of all things grey, it certainly makes sense that they’d focus on something like this instead of actual visual improvement, given that making things darker isn’t enough of a leap.

    Like

    1. Well you’re right. And let’s analyze something, even when The Dark Knight looks awesome and has a really cool story but Adam West had the only series that focused in the original comic, with the “POWS” and “OUCHS” and the battles againts all the original enemies even the batmobile made of cardoboard looked like the one in the comic. So to conclude, you can have the best graphics you want, but there will always be needed the essence that we inherited by the first generations

  5. I don’t think it’s going to be a GIGANTIC leap but it will be a good leap. We’ve already seen the wii u produce real time graphics that look close to CGI at 1080p 60fps with the Zelda tech demo and that wasn’t even the final build of the wii u. It’s definitely better than what’s on current consoles right now. However I don’t think the next gen systems from other companies will be a huge leap over the wii u. Environments will probably have more details and all but it won’t be a huge difference.

      7. Yeah the GPU is a powerhouse but the CPU is kinda on the weak side in fact it’s actually slightly weaker than the PS3 and 360. It may not run next gen games as well but the GPU should help pick up some slack for how weak the CPU is.

  6. I doubt it. If the 720/PS4 use top-of-the-range components, they’ll only be about 5 times more powerful than the Wii U and if they do use those components (I’m talking about an NVidea GTX 680/690 or equiv), then the price of the consoles will be through the roof (a GTX 690 alone costs £800+).

Bane doesnt have the fucking ridiculous patrick stewart voice he has in the movie. Talia Al Ghul isnt French, German, or whatever accent she used. Robin was never a cop, and his name was never Robin (thats like Bruce Wayne being called Batman Wayne).
        Gotham IS basically just New York. No gothic architecture, nothing resembling the real Gotham. Batman doesnt put on a mumbling stupid voice. Gordon was fucking BORING, and didnt have a daughter, Barbara (Batgirl/Oracle), just some dopeyshit son. Two face, was in the film for about 10 minutes, tops. And the way they killed off Bane was embarressing. Nolan is a good director (Inception, Machinist), but his Batman trilogy sucked BALLS.

      5. Actually technically they do, they have fable, forza, gears of war, and there’s like 4-or 5 more that I can’t recall at the moment, this is excluding all kiect gmames. They don’t have as many good exclusives compared to other companies though. But their main exclusives are VERY good games. Same can be said of the other companies too.

      1. Sorry I had to do it. It was just so funny to read through the comments. As of now, I have decided to never ever reply to troll bait. It’s not worth it.

  16. Sickr needs to delete himself with these misleading headlines. I read the statement and he never said anything close to your title. Im started to notice this a lot on this site and it reminds me of IGN. Thats y I don’t follow them any longer. Stop with the misleading headings it just makes u look disparate for views

  17. Priorities.

    Let’s focused on better AI, shorter load times, less bugs/glitches, consistent frame rates, and of course, gameplay before we worry about graphics.

    1. Shorter load times can easily be remedied with a SSD. The advancements of CPUs can be applied to having some better AI and as for bugs/glitches, well time to hire more game testers.

  19. I actually don’t have a problem w/ other iterations of Batman after the Nolan films. Sure I’m not going to take Adam West’s Batman as the model for all Batmen to follow, but the camp in that show is endearing enough get enjoyment out of watching reruns (at least on my part). Really, this all sounds like Rein’s need to sound very “adult,” that, if too prioritized, can be a particularly immature thing.

    As for a genuine graphical leap, he really is kidding himself, and this is coming from someone who saw the Agni’s Philosophy video. Yes, such visuals running in real time is very impressive, but it’s nothing like a leap from N64 to the original Xbox or even the Gamecube to PS3. Until certain specs are more affordable for game makers and consumers, we’re not quite ready for the level of jump he’s describing. Until then, he and others like him should stop pretending they are taking that step.

  20. I’m not reading the billion comments on this article, but I’m just going to assume people got the wrong impression from what he’s saying because (for the like 100th time) the article title and explanation is misleading. The duder is just speaking in general, and not about ps4/xbox720 (even though he was asked about them specifically[which a lot of companies for for some reason instead of just answering the question idk]). Like, literally. Not even about any specific generation of a leap in tech (unless you want to count his cell phone example for some reason even though it’s completely unrelated). I agree with him that there’s always SOME expectation for better visuals. Totally disagree with it being hard to go back to old stuff, but then again I actually play video games enough for visuals to be a triviality.

    also,
    “Asked about the role the next wave of beautiful graphics will have to play on platforms like Xbox Next and PlayStation 4…”

    isn’t that like the only role they’ll have
    other than like kinect but gl with that
    or is everyone going to do the screen-controller this time

    why did i write this long message on this old article i don’t care about have no idea
