Cliff Bleszinski demands high graphical standards from the next console generation

Cliffy B wants Avatar-like graphics in the next-gen machines

Epic's creative boss, Cliff Bleszinski, has explained exactly what he wants from the next generation of home console hardware.

Bleszinski admitted that what he really wants is games that look like James Cameron's 3D epic Avatar.

He said: "I'm sorry, do you think graphics are good enough? No they're not! The Xbox 360 is great, we've pushed it further than we ever have with Gears of War 3, but I want Avatar in real-time and beyond, I want fully realistic CG, and are we there? Absolutely not. I think there's absolutely room for improvement."

"Do graphics make gameplay?" he added. "No. But when I fire up my projector back at my house, put Avatar on - it still makes your jaw drop, it's like a giant portal to another planet. I think we still have a long way to go before we get there, and I want us to get there."

Thanks OXM.
