Chip maker AMD has hinted that the Xbox 360's successor will be able to deliver computer graphics to match those in James Cameron's movie Avatar.
Robison claims the AI and physics capabilities of the net-gen console would pave the way for every pedestrian in games such as Grand Theft Auto to have an individual mentality.
AMD hasn't confirm it is actually working on Microsoft's eagerly anticipated follow-up, but as Robison is director of independent software vendor relationships at AMD, it's probable that has been extensively speaking with games developers.
So... is Avatar the new Toy Story within the gaming world? If you recall, back before the PS2 launched Sony claimed it would produce Toy Story level graphics... and well we know how that turned out, so color me mildly skeptical any time a game system is compared to a high end cgi/3d movie.
In any case, I look forward to learning more!
