No, it is not a developer but teen
customers that want new better graphics every year (month, week, DAY).
*** A bit muffled post, sorry ***
Never heard of: "I don't want to play this game, the engine is 1 year old!!!"?
Or, related to AC: "New Assassin's Creed have SAME GRAPHICS like in previous part, released year ago? 1 point out of 100, ever would not bother to play it. Even for free. Game is ruined."
The "indie" games are not so popular because of... graphics. I mean $$$ GRAPHICS!!!
The sad thing about AC that dev's just milking the series, trying to sell graphics instead of gameplay. This time they have run into wall: new consoles can't allow them to sell only graphics.
All that means only one thing for me: we, PC players, will get downgraded (cutted) games (ports) to not to make consoles look useless.
Just take a look at the Toy Story 3. PC got... Wii version! Compare PS3 and this... even no shadows... (but great perfomance LOL)

LOL I don't mind of this thing and at the same time I found it completely senseless.
