We'll keep this in the rumor bin for now but director of ISV relationships at AMD, Neal Robison says that gamers have a lot to be excited about in regards to the next-generation of Xbox. Claiming that the next-gen Xbox will be capable of graphical detail from the movie Avatar. Robison also mentioned that the AI and physics capabilities of the next-gen hardware will reportedly allow every pedestrian in a game like Grand Theft Auto to have totally individual mentality.
This means that if you were to shoot a gun near someone or run them over, each NPC will react different. Gone will be the days of mob mentality where everyone acted the same, each character is capable of being an individual.
It's a bold statement, that's for sure.
