Xbox 360 to take games to a new level

By Derek Sooman on
The kinds of games to be available for the Xbox 360, shown on Tuesday at a preview event in San Francisco, have made for some impressive viewing. It seems clear that the new generation of hardware available for the console will have some startling results - much more detailed and vivid games than in the current Xbox or its existing rivals.

"If this were a current-generation game, this would be a flat ground -- one big smeary texture," said Blake Fischer, Xbox worldwide content planner, pointing to an elaborate field of individual grass blades waving in the wind in "Kameo," an action-adventure game from Microsoft's Rare game studio. "This is a living world."
Microsoft is certainly showing belief in the new console, claiming that it will deliver the best launch line-up in the history of the console industry. Whether this comes to pass or not remains to be seen.
