The next generation of consoles about to arrive under your TV

IT’S a bit early in the year to talk about saving your money. But seriously, start saving your money.

This year is going to be an expensive one for video game lovers — although for all the right reasons. (Next-Gen, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I've saved enough for one without being economically stupid. still, I think I'm likely to wait a year after release to let the bugs and dust settle. So I still have awhile, good thing I have the likes of skyrim and other games to keep me busy.

"Can gaming get any more realistic than it is now? Yes. Xbox will be a beast under the hood, wth four core processors fuelling the fun. In layman’s terms that means it will make the many of the current high-end PCs look like the lowest-end PC"

This is my favourite part of the whole thing. Absolute madness and speculation with zero sources or research.

Edit: Just had to quote this to you guys to so you get an idea of the quality journalism you are looking at to avoid getting them a hit.

"Perhaps more exciting is some of the virtual reality stuff proposed. Kinect 2.0 will be built into the main system and promises four-player recognition and the sort of sensitivity that can detect the smallest finger movement".

From all the disagrees, it looks like people are directing quite a bit of "finger movement" in your general direction over your comment. heh.

For the record, I didn't disagree. The Sun is an absolutely atrocious, abomination of a publication, and Lee Price is a tool.

In layman's terms this 'journalist' is a moron.

PS4/Orbis all the way.
Will have the most new and awsome looking exclusives & will be supported the longest of any of the 3 consoles I would put $200 on it.

Oh man, PS4 can be huge... please Sony... don't mess it up!
Tvensky  +   550d ago
people who wants specific features for PS4 should go to official sony website forum and type it there, if you start a bright idea, people will be all around it, in the end Sony could use something "YOU" requested....

I'd get a PS4 on day one without a question but I just refuse to stand in those long lines again. I did it with the PS3 and it was a nightmare. Something I will never do in my entire life again.

But if I get a chance, I will buy a PS4 day one. Money is not an issue at all.
horndog  +   550d ago
Lol you lined up to get a ps3??? Really? Are you being sarcastic? Dude they had pyramids of ps3's everywhere that sat there for a long long time. Well.the good news is that it was only you in the line up.so you didnt wait long lol
jivah  +   550d ago
In ny it was sold out everywhere. so these mountains of ps3s must have been in the middle of the nevada desert cause there were none here. And when they did get a shipment mom and pop store sold em for around 800 - a grand and alot of places sold the games first week for like 80 90 a pop.
Ares84HU  +   550d ago
I don't know where you have seen those "pyramids of ps3s" but here in NYC it was sold out for months. In the line there was around a 1000 people plus. I was at the Sony Plaza here in Manhattan. But if I didn't do that I wouldn't have been able to get a PS3 for at least 4-5 months here in the city and online prices were just crazy at $1000-$5000.
ABizzel1  +   550d ago
Wow, this article just wow. Professionalism out the window, regarding specs. and how they should compare to PC's. At least he's sounds excited I guess.
No sources for any of those claims...

After the RROD that sounds retarded.
NoobJobz  +   549d ago
I would normally agree but that console was rushed. I don't think they are going to be rushing out a console this time. Now, will it still have some issues? I'm sure it will but I don't think it will be nearly as bad as a RRoD which impacted a majority of the consoles.
Urusernamesucks  +   549d ago
Judging a future nonexisting console for its past, that sounds retarded.
Platinum_k  +   550d ago
Anyone in their right mind would not trust Microsoft(as much) with Hardware after RROD. WAKE UP!
Belking  +   550d ago
I had no problems with my xbox360. Didn't buy it until 2008. I had ps3 since day 1 and i had to replace that. Replace my older xbox360 with a slim and its great. I never had any problems last gen with my original xbox either. If I have problem with either this gen they will be covered by a warranty. I'm not worried.
Platinum_k  +   550d ago
On first day(due to RROD):

Sony PS4 > Xbox 720

...But I think I'll wait a good 6-12 months before getting PS4 just to get the bugs out and updated hardware installed. Not to mention the variety of SKU's to choose from.
Kurt Russell  +   550d ago
I don't get it... your non existent Xbox 720 from the future has RROD? Wtf kinda crap troll is this?!?!

Does it even have red lights?

Moved to pc but will get the next xbox ,no sony for me ever again they dont exsist in my gaming world.
southernbanana  +   550d ago
I plan on buying all next gen systems eventually. I will start with the next Xbox, then the WiiU, and then the PS4. Hope they will all be full of great games like they were this past gen.
geth1gh  +   549d ago
I'm really excited about next gen consoles. I am also a pc gamer. That said, just saw this and lol'd.

"Xbox will be a beast under the hood, wth four core processors fuelling the fun. In layman’s terms that means it will make the many of the current high-end PCs look like the lowest-end PC."

It will look good, I agree. But not like that...

Overall I honestly think this article was lackluster and a cry for hits. Funny timing after that other article a day or two ago, "how to make money off the ps4..."

I already spent a lot of money on my Wii U, so I don't see myself getting a PS4 or a Xbox 720 this year (if they're released).

However, that could change in a couple years, once both consoles have built a bigger and better game library for them. If I get another console, it most likely will be a PS4 - Sony has a lot of superb exclusives.

But for this year? I have more than enough with my Wii U, Xbox 360, PS3, 3DS, and coming soon, OUYA (backed it on Kickstarter). I actually have much more in my plate than I can chew... :S

Uhm... why the disagrees? If you're going to disagree on a post that's not trolling or being offensive at all, it would be nice if you at least replied to explain why the disagreement. I stated MY personal situation regarding games this year, and I don't see how anyone could disagree with it.

Ps4 = god mode. It will be amazing, full HD graphics, true multitasking, cross game chat ( like vita), and enhanced ps vita connectivity. Bring it Sony.
