IMO, the jump in graphics from the PS3 to the PS4 isn't quite as wide as, say, the jump from the PS1 to the PS2. I find PS3 graphics to still be good enough that they don't look dated, so if there's a PS3 version of a game, I usually try to get that once since it's cheaper than the PS4 version.
Again, just my opinions here.
There's a good and a bad at that. I love the PS3 (busted mine (slim ver. 1) after 5 years)and hope to buy a replacement one soon. But as you mentioned, the jump from PS3 to PS4 isn't that wide but in DOA5LR, the extra polys on the PS4 version, the ladies faces make them look actually like their packaging renders.
If PS3 still going strong, more likely there will be PS3 for Tekken 7 but if SONY and Bandai Namco really want to push for the latest gen, then there might be only PS4/Xbone.So the developers will be forced are be given an easier task of maximizing the beauty of their works.
As for the release, maybe fall? I'm basing that on the potential sales windfall. So try checking September 2015. That or Maybe February 2016....after the Chinese New Year.
LOL, my fatty PS3 recently died at the age of 6, succumbing to the dreaded YLOD. Thing is, I'd been treating it like royalty, never playing for more than 2.5 hours and always turning the AC on. Either way, I decided to get a second one (the "George Foreman grill" version
) after hearing that the PS4 won't be backward compatible.
Well, I guess as time passes, game companies will quickly learn to push the PS4 to its limits. I haven't been keeping up with DOA, but I reckon fighting games which capitalize on cutting-edge CG graphics will naturally pay a lot of attention to making their characters as realistic as possible.
Personally, I think the PS3 is still pretty relevant, and will probably remain so for the next couple of years. The thing is, game developers will most likely pay less and less attention to prettying up the PS3 versions of their games. The graphics on my PS3 copy of Watchdogs looked only marginally better than a top-tier PS2 game.
And thanks for the heads-up on Tekken 7's potential release date. I expected it to be much earlier since the arcade version's already out (or close to release, I think). I just hope they'll ditch the wonky story mode mini-quest and return to the individual character levels where you fight a series of other characters to unlock their respective endings.
