I don't care what people say. If you want mediocre graphics and fun play, just get a Wii. It's got all the casual fun you want and you can even hop or do crazy things physically while scoring points.
Anyway, PS3 spells next-gen gaming, and for some of you (a small minority with no sense of the future, stuck in your own little bubble of hate) who didn't have to sacrifice a lot to finally get an HDTV to go along nicely with the PS3, then you are totally out of your league here claiming that graphics isn't what games should be about. The first reason i bought a PS3 and not a PS2 (games still coming out on all the time on this one) was for the graphics which is the DIFFERENCE between the PS3 and other consoles. That's the whole crucial point you graphics-haters seem to miss. Killzone 2 minus the graphics would definitely not have had the same amount of worldwide success. The same goes for God of War 1 & 2 on the PS2 - these are easily the best looking game on the PS2, which explains their tremendous success in both cases.
@gygabyte666 & co. If you need to escape from the crap in life, you need help, not a PS3.
Back to the topic in discussion, for people with no life/gaming inferiority complex, the gameplay graphics did not look evolutionarily stunning in the trailer released some months ago, for a game of this gigantic magnitude, so if the developer is claiming it's going to be 25-30%, then all the better. I know, like everyone else who's been following the GoW news, that Sony isn't taking any chances with this title and it's going to be somewhat the messiah of the PS3 and the last effortless push to all undecided or other console fan boys with enough sense left to realize what they would be missing.
