It is a bit underwhelming that the new consoles will probably be less powerful than a PC you could have had several years ago.
But more consistent motion control could make it an interesting transition. Along with the media center capability. Consoles are so far behind PCs that items at this point that the physics and graphics have a lot of room to improve too. Art style (does every open world game need to be cartoony or flat) and restricted environments have been used to avoid pointing out the pitfalls, i.e. Crysis 2 levels areas are less open on consoles so that the texture quality and relatively poorer lighting is not brought into the forefront as much.
