Where will gaming go in 2013?

Martin Gaston:

Despite what I have often said, 2012 has not been a bad year for games. Much to the contrary, actually; when pushed, I will usually try and elaborate and say that 2012 has been a bad year for traditional boxed games, the ones played traditionally on consoles.

Except, of course, that hasn't really been the case either (provided you're not looking at the UK sales numbers). Just last week Bethesda released a grand content-stuffed add-on for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, last year's King of the Boxed Game, and if that's not enough to get you incredibly excited then you probably aren't that keen on Skyrim. But that's okay! There is almost certainly something new, rich and exciting on a shelf waiting for you: Borderlands 2, Halo 4, Far Cry 3, Dishono(u)red, Max Payne 3 - all fine examples of boxed games delivering the kind of whizzy experience boxed games absolutely should. Bravo! (Industry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

It's all about defining the mastered systems. We are at the end of this generation and developers are fully capable of delivering the best of the gen. I expect that next gen is coming pretty soon, so I expect that 2013 will be a finale for the Xbox and PS3 and the start of what's in store. I also see great things for Wii U next year. I system was clearly kicked out early for the sales grab. I expect us to finally see our favorite Nintendo games reborn in HD built from the ground up. For Handhelds we have epics like Soul Sacrifice and Tearaway on Vita & Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon on 3DS.

It'll revisit older places from the games that'll be getting their third and fourth sequels.
