I think graphics will become to much of a gimick and games will just be overelaborated with realisticness and end up sucking. A friend of mine was complaining the other day how Gran Tursimo 3 or something had too realistic of controls to have fun with, I think the beauty of the next gen. and others to come will be mind-blowing graphics, but also unbelieveable gameplay to boot. I think gameplay will come up again as being a top prioty once the graphics part of systems is lain out to it's max potential. Games seem really short these days!
