The Next Console War Begins Today

An argument could be made that there is plenty of life left in the current generation of consoles. Newly released games on PS3 and Xbox 360 continue to raise the bar on visuals and depth of play, squeezing every ounce of capability from this almost geriatric hardware. (Consoles age in dog years, right?) Developers have had plenty of time to learn the hardware capabilities inside and out, and it shows. (Industry, Microsoft, Nintendo, PS3, Sony, Wii U, Xbox 360)

What? No GLaDOS for the lead in pic?

And how come I seem to be the only one getting a "this URL for sale" page?

That pic needs to be updated. Two of those mascots are clearly outdated.

It'll be interesting to see this site two years from now. Will the Steambox or Ouya get their dedicated fanboys?

Will there be certain people on this site still yelling about what this place used to be like back in 2006/09?

I hope not, I see this site growing and posters having calm intelligent conversations.

I certainly hope so. A good amount of people on here and the YouTube community are adults, therefore it shouldn't be asking for too much to act as an Adult. Civil, peaceful, respectful conversations seem like they get harder and harder to come by on these gaming sites and it turns me off from them entirely. Hopefully people grow up and realize the hobby for what it is and act their age but lets be real here, its not likely.

That picture looks both hilariously funny and yet pretty disturbing at the same time. I mean, look at it. Little Billy looks like a new inmate in prison while Crash and Mario look like they're saying "fresh meat!" or something.

While there has been no price point established for either new console, there is little doubt that it will eclipse the price of previous console generations.

Now how can you say this. Sony really is the only one I'm worried about on a price point and I'm sure they've learned thier lesson on releasing at some rediculous price point. And on top of that if the rumors are true(or at least close to it) they are using relatively cheap hardware that is known for excellent performance for the price. I'm expecting the nextbox and ps4 to come out around 300-400 USD for a base model. A little more than what the wiiu launched but not horribly unreasonable.

The Console War Must Be Ended, The Wii U is a very power efficient games console

Basically its a tablet in a console box? XD

That's what power efficient means these days.

lol

How about we all grow up and stop this absurdly silly 'War' crap. It's embarrassing to what otherwise is a pretty acceptable and universal form of entertainment.
