Those who aren't ready for new consoles just stick with the 360/Wii/PS3.....I'm waiting for next gen hardware myself...Think about what developers would be able to accomplish on better hardware....

I am really curious to see what the 3 next generation consoles are capable of, so I can't wait to see them and the library of games they will offer.

I just don't believe the 'leap' will be great enough to warrant another half a mortgage. I've only just managed to afford a Vita.

TheLeapist2268d ago

This. I am frequently confused by people that say we don't need a new gen because a higher pixel/polygon count doesn't make games any better. Not because I don't agree with that, because I do for the most part, but because it's like they think that's the only type of improvement better hardware can provide.

More powerful hardware = better/more realistic physics, better draw distances, larger (which could equate to longer) games, more on screen models/effects (for larger, more epic battles), and the list goes on.

i would like to see what they could do with gran turismo 6 (ps4?).

imagine more content like 5000 cars...

bleeding edge graphics

more tracks ect.

i cannot wait for the real driving simularor (king) to show on ps4.

@FatOldMan, maybe motorbikes? that would be fresh.

Ducky2269d ago (Edited 2269d ago )

Asside from graphics, I don't see why they can't include those cars/tracks on current-gen hardware.

It only takes more data and there is plenty of that left on the blu-ray... especially considering that GT5 only took up around ~20gb.

Edit: Polyphony has already said that they wanted to include bikes. Still don't need next-gen for that.

I am excited for it too, but I think it can wait a year or two so that it will be perfected.

MrMister2269d ago (Edited 2269d ago )

@ NYC_Gamer: ...OR, think about how many companies will go out of business at the rising cost of game developement. Leaving us with only CapCON, Activi$ion, EA, and Square to keep dishing out more Un-original games, with subscription fee's to make up for the high cost of developement, etc. The industry is not ready. So until they are, games are fine as they are now.

Am I the only one that thinks this gen still has a good amount of juice left? 2014 Spring time maybe would be around the sweet spot, time wise, for me.

I can wait another year or two for another Playstation and Xbox but Nintendo made the right choice by early attracting developers with their sexy console, thus, eliminating the threat that is the lack of third party support which the Wii was labeled with.

While I'm not sure what you mean by "a good amount of juice" I do think we have another year or so left in the consoles.

While new tech is welcome and needed eventually, progress has to come sometime. I'm just not sure we are there.

Sure current systems are showing some age but we're still getting amazing games like arkham city and last of us. Why hiccup that with new tech. There is also the economics, the world and myself just aren't up for another $500 tag. There is also a learning curve to consoles and developing costs as well that limit games when they first release.

I welcome new tech, but I'm also really enjoying the current offers and think we could use a few more years.

I'm satisfied ATM I guess.

Frankly it should've started two years ago.

1.PS3 still has alot of power left.

thebudgetgamer2269d ago

I found for the most part the best games come late in a consoles life span.
