After a long several year cycle, the seventh generation of consoles is starting to come to an end. Just on the horizon there are several new gaming consoles by new and old gaming companies alike. 2013 looks to be a very promising year for gamers.
Nope, I'm sticking with my PS3 until it dies.
If you keep your PS3 over a PS4 you must be crazy.
I'm a day 1'r myself, so I'm gonna be getting whatever looks appetizing. Steambox and Ouya are gonna have to do some SERIOUS ground work to convince me though. I'm going to need solid evidence that they can provide something I don't have. I have a Gaming PC with Steam on it, so I don't know how the Steambox is going to win me over. Also, for the Ouya, I don't want some little cheap gaming system that was funded with a few mil. They both need to get somekind of exclusive games that make me want to play them specifically.
I, unlike some people, am open to any new system. It is the games after all that trump the name on the box that contains the hardware. I just hope the next E3 is much better than the last few.
I'm not keeping my PS3 over a PS4. I'm simply waiting to buy a PS4 when I feel its necessary. The PS3 hasn't even peaked yet. The Last of Us is proof of that. Whats the point in me getting a PS4 when the console I already have hasn't even been maxed out yet?
Wii U: X. Still not impressed by anything it has to offer so far. steambox: X. Never been a fan of PC gaming or any valve game, so I could care less about them... xbox Durango: X. If it's really expanding on the kinect tech, then definitely a NO. PS4/ Orbis: Been happy since the psone till now, so I'm sticking with Sony for sure.
@sofresh412 Well I'm the same way! The Steambox isn't really targeted at gamers who have a PC instead towards console players who will finally have easy way of getting into PC games by buying a dedicated console by Valve and not having to no shit about how anything works. Thats the turnkey solution for gamers who dont know much. Just buy it turn it on and play games which is all some people know how to do and that's the way those gamers like it. Steam is great and so are the deals. Lots of people might like Steam more than Xbox because its free, no adds, great UI. Also no 40k game patches either for those great developers who don't want to spend that much.
As much as I would love it I highly doubt PS4 will release next year. I'm thinking more 2014.
Agree, but they said with gaikai you can play ps4 caliber graphics on a ps3, or other streaming device. Gaikai and other streaming services will only need to upgrade hardware on their end.
Not unless you want to wait for the PS4's library to grow and the console itself to drop in price. The PS3 will still be supported, so it's a logical move. Probably what I'll be doing.
I will probably be tempted to upgrade to a PS4 once I see one. The Steambox is going to be the other console that I will be getting, provided it gets released in Canada. I could care less about the next Xbox or Ouya.
I bought all 3 console at launch this gen. Never again. I'll be waiting at least a year or so before jumping onboard next gen. Too few games, too many bugs, too many hardware issues, too high a price = no incentive to upgrade. And besides, if previous gens are anything to go by we're not going to be seeing anything early next gen that can't be done with current hardware. Even developers are cautioning gamers already to not expect a big leap in the games next gen. And if they stopped making games for the 360 and PS3 today, it would still probably take me a couple of years to get through the backlog of games I want to play. But we'll have to see. If the next gen offers something more than just a prettier game to keep the pixel counters happy I may consider getting on-board sooner.
I wasn't happy with 2/3 of the consoles in the 7th gen. This time, I'm sticking with PC while the 8th gen consoles mature a little. This time I'm playing it closer to the chest and only getting the systems worth bothering with. You can shove your "I buy e'rry console when they release cause I'm not teh fanboy" crap. I'm an adult and I am FAR from having the time to waste with THREE simultaneous systems. I want unique, quality titles like Infamous, Demon's Souls, LBP, etc.
@Army_of_Darknes The phrase is "I couldn't care less"!!! "I could care less" implies that you have some interest. What is wrong with people using this phrase incorrectly? It's almost as annoying as the your/you're thing. On topic, I will be buying a PS4 day one, kinda given up on Xbox considering how much they shaft their customers.
graphics whore. Future of earth, bad future...
I've learned not to be an early adopter anymore. The PS3 taught me that. I will wait at least a year. Cheaper systems with more features and cheaper and bigger library of games. That and probably will wait until a franchise I want to play it on comes out on it first. Here's hoping for Uncharted 4.
if you buy a console next gen instead of a pc you must be crazy...
I'm all in Day one for 720 if it arrives next holiday. We've seen these articles for the last year about how ready people are, but I guarantee people will change their minds after E3 when they see it really about to go down. At the end of the day it will come down to what is offered at launch. I feel like Nintendo wasnt really ready to go all in when they launched the Wii-U. If they had launched with a new Wii Sports, Super Mario 3D, and a Mario Kart all with next gen graphics that launch would have been ridiculous. As it is you literally have what may be the biggest releases of AAA games coming in the next 6 months of ANY gen. Between the current gen of the PS3 and the 360 gamers are in for an amazing year. But come next holiday, people are going to be going bat crazy trying to upgrade to next gen. It going to be some great times for gamers in 2013..i personally can't wait for it all to go down. Evil
I think I'll wait for a year after the new consoles launch. I'd love to have a new console but if it launches with few games I'm interested in then I wouldn't be able to play it often. Plus launch prices are usually high. I am happy with the playstation brand so it's my first choice. If there's another console with interesting exclusive games then I'd get it too....after a year.
@marcus...not really its best for some people to wait that way you can make sure some of the major bugs get fixed...i didnt get a ps3 until 2008 and it didnt bother me at all...for the 1st time i am with logic on this somewhat....maybe a year after release i will get a ps4....so maybe in 2014 and if its released by 2014 mid 2015 will be when i update
I just thought it was necessary to to say that this might be the first time I've ever agreed with Army_of_Darkness, aside from the awesomeness of his screen name.
Day 1 PS3 with BC, never regretted. The games did the job. WIll be day 1 PS4 again: - Nintendo: not my style of games but the kids might make me change my mind :-/ - MS: "Well it's 1 for the money, 2 for the show, 3 to get ready before Sony" - PC: who knows what game make me change my mind on PC gaming. But first I would need to buy a new PC.
I'm patiently waiting for PS4 news, but I have every intention of trading my PS3 in towards a PS4.
I don't know I'm definitely getting the PS4 at launch but I think I want to keep my PS3 for collection purposes, I still have my ps2 and ps1(somewhere).
trading it towards it? even if it doesn't have backwards compatibility? (which it's rumoured it will likely not have.)
I don't have many PS3 games. I tend to play them and then trade/sell. Obviously I'm going to wait for full details on what the PS4 will feature, but I suspect we'll get BC either via hardware or software. And don't forget, Sony bought Gaikai earlier this year and I can see them offering PS3 games via cloud. I imagine it as follows; I launch Gaikai (or whatever Sony calls it eventually) and the app/program then checks to see if I have the PS3 game in my drive (physical) or on my HDD (digital). Once it confirms what the game is, it will launch the game like normal... But we'll see what Sony does. The last thing they want is to piss gamers off, so no BC would be a terrible business move. Not to mention I don't want multiple consoles in my entertainment system if necessary. One media/console box is enough for me. If Sony play their cards right, the PS4 may be that box.
More so looking forward to see what the steambox offers over the average console. I know the discounts and prices on games will be better, the backwards compatibility is already there with a large amount of previous games, plus all the pc exclusives.. That's a good enough reason to get it over the others right there if your only looking to pick one..
What if... Half Life 3 will be Steambox exclusive? :D Would be kind of crazy
PS4 because with all the studios Sony has we are guaranteed dedicated exclusives. The Steambox can also become my second console. Considering the deals steam does for their games I am hoping they would do something similar for their console and it just seems that valve will be able to bring true PC gaming to the living room without all the extra work, just plug and play.
its not 100% that microsoft or sony will reveal there consoles in e3 2013 ,,, nothing for we don't know, last year they expected to be revealed but nothing happened so nothing is for sure...
Revealed te 360 before e3 so it might be early 2013.
I don't think steam or ouya will actually be release. Waiting on info for new Xbox. Will definitely be getting a ps4.
Lol ouya will definitely be released... Look at the website and they're already taking pre orders and ouya is one you would by with the otherxconsoles, not on its own its only $100
i cant wait to get my new PS4 on launch day ¡¡¡¡
