With the next generation gaming systems coming out soon, we shall have to move on to a new "phase" in the system wars. The next generation systems will definitely consist of the Ultimate Dreamcast from Sega, the Ultimate Playstation 2, and eventually Nintendo's Project dolphin. One of the greatest improvements made on these systems is that some games will allow you to go on line and play with other gamers! Who would think that gaming systems could actually pull the world together and make it a closer place?
Just a little while ago, the Dreamcast was launched in Japan and about one year from now, the PSX2 will too make its ultimate debut, hopefully blowing all the other systems away. Last, and possibly lease, Nintendo's new system Project Dolphin will launch, lets just all hope this time Nintendo wont act unique and make a foolish mistake by using cartridges. As you can probably tell already, I am not exactly a Nintendo fan, but how can I be after they let me down twice in a row by making one piece of junk, (The Virtual Boy) after another (N64)? I honestly wish that Nintendo will this time make an outstanding system like the SNES once again, and leave gamers like me speechless.
The system that is currently creating the most hype in gaming world right now is definitely Sega's Dreamcast (currently available in Metrotown). However if the Dreamcast is to survive in Japan, it better have a bunch of damn good RPG's. The Dreamcast having polygon rocking power should be expected to have kick ass graphics, high quality FMV, long stories, and great game play right? However it wasn't like this with its first two RPG's from NEC know as The Seventh Cross and Sengoku Turbo, these games is said to be a real piece of crap. Fortunately, the company known as Sting is also making one hell of an RPG for the Dreamcast called Evolution, this game has graphics that are gonna truly blow all the other RPG's out of the water, this game could mean the beginning of a very successful system.
Last next generation system, but definitely not least is the Sony Playstation 2. With the success from the first generation Playstation, gamers will definitely expect no less from this improved version. Combining never seen before graphics technology with complex real-world simulations, creating a new concept known as "Emotion Synthesis". Emotion Synthesis does not only improve the graphics, but allows the characters to think, act, and behave as they would in the real world. But that's not all, this new system will also include a DVD drive, and a 128-bit CPU, allowing it to have a maximum polygon rate of 75 million per second. This system however is still in development, and is not gonna be released until the year 2000.
With all the new systems coming out, its going to be really hard to decide which ones better, but I guess its really up to the gamer, for me its probably the PS2, but it could be the Dolphin for you, I don't know. All the new systems have their own advantages. But for now, lets just all be happy with our dainty little 32-bit systems.
