OPINION: Look before you leap into PS4, Killzone, and the uncanny valley

Perhaps it’s not pessimism I hold, but skepticism. I look at footage for a game like Watch Dogs and it’s still got me excited for the PS4, truly. Reading in-between the lines during these kinds of hype festivals keeps me optimistic - not for the game in question, but for the hints of greatness it offers on the coming generation. For me, one such hint was Aiden Pearce's jacket. Really, look at his waist coat. Did you see it move, how it swallowed every gust of inner city wind and whipped back in response? That kind of step up in animation is a beautiful thing to dream about. I see so many jackets in PS4’s future, and I just can’t wait to see them flap in the breeze.

Gives me shivers just thinking about it.
