The Next Generation: Where the PS4 and Next Xbox Stand, How and Why

"It’s only human to dream of bigger and better things. When a high-profile game releases, people, be it the gamers or media, automatically start talking about what the sequel holds. When viewing an upcoming sequel in a long-running series, thoughts of how it fits into the overall trilogy begin flowing. How many articles have you read, talking about the “Top 5 Most Wanted Features” for an upcoming theoretical sequel?"

Where do they stand for me??? Doesnt getting both systems hopefully just like this gen. More gaming the better!Fanboy crap is so short sighted..

TheBrownBandito2115d ago (Edited 2115d ago )

Where did you infer "fanboy crap" from that article? :/

Another well written and informative article, thanks. And to think not long ago, some sources were begining to summize that one of the big three wouldn't be releasing another console. With the SteamBox announced, instead the future for console gaming seems to be getting brighter.

Edit: splelling

theWB272115d ago

I didn't infer it from the article...i was stating there was no bias for me. On this site allot of people pick sides to what console they want and then bash the other...see digitalsmoke's comment below. Hr didn't say anything about me wanting both consoles but attacked me because I'm not supporting one company...and choose to want an xbox. I enjoy gaming on my xbox more but love the hell out of Sony's exclusives.

MikeMyers2115d ago

Where it all stands for me is real gameplay. Not tech demo's. I don't want to see what it can apparently do but what is actually does. I also don't want to see games that are 3+ years away from being released.

Divine2115d ago

i am a fan boy of just great things and quality which is why i will have a ps4 at launch if i get the xbox it will be after a few price drops i think it will just be a waste of my money. that will be going towards quality "ps4" there is no need to figure out where they stand sony is on. top , next gen starts when ps4 is here

dcbronco2115d ago


you're on N4G. Fanboy crap is always inferred. Just read the post on this page. I haven't. but I know where they're going. We all do.

If i have to pick one console from 3(Wii U, PS4 and X720) then i would pick PS4

Why? Because Sony has most exclusive games, PS1,PS2 and PS3 proved it, and so will be PS4 same way.
Also, PS4 WILL be powerful.

Reason why not X720:
Lack of exclusives, too many Halos and Gears of War... Also too much Kinect stuff. Dident microsoft told that next gen they focus on Kinect 2? I really want exclusive big games, not Kinect games!!!

Wii U? Um... more like last gen...

nintendoland2115d ago

you are the most biased f*ck ever. Sony might have lots of exclusives but 90% of those are shovel ware and casual s*it. For example Heavy Rain and Gran Tursimo. Wii u is last gen? really? Are you that slow? Nintendo and PC for next gen. Nintendo for great exclusives and PC for 3rd party. What does sony/microsoft have. Uncharted, Halo... you crack me up.

aquamala2114d ago

but why would you want to pick just one console?

gobluesamg2114d ago

Your name is nintendoland and you want us to believe that your not biased. Sony exclusives are not shovel ware. Simple as that.

cedaridge2115d ago (Edited 2115d ago )

AGREE! I'm lookin to get both as well. I like gears for xbox, uncharted for ps3, and it depends for multiplat. But let say Sony charge a membership for the ps4, i might have to decide cause i don't see myself paying for a membership for both ps4 and xb720.

one2thr2114d ago

I'd pay for PlayStation Plus, any day... Excluding days when I'm hungry, need gas money, and etc. But any other day, I'm more than willing to pay for that "membership", ad long is it follow its current service/trend.

evilhasitsway2114d ago

i wouldnt really call myself a fanboy of sony the only reason i stick with sony is the games they have more.

Lol you know what is short sighted?, just throwing money at hardware because you lack the insicht to separate quality from garbage.

You know whats even worse?
Company's getting away with making tons of cash on marketing low level bullshit products cause of ppl like you.

DigitalSmoke2115d ago

The ppl who have no knowladge about hardware or quality games voted Disagree Hahaha look at it!

Intentions2115d ago

I don't need to understand where they stand.

All I know that both will be F***ING EPIC!

juandren2115d ago

I love it when an article says "Next Xbox" and not f*cking "Xbox 720". Seriously, do people HONESTLY think it will be called that?

PS4isKing_822115d ago

No but we don't have an actual name for it and that name just stuck so ppl use it to refer to the next Xbox whatever it'll be called.
Ppl have to call it something for now so other ppl know they're not talking about the 360.

But honestly who cares what Microsoft calls it, until they invest in more exclusive ips than just halo and gears and kinect, I will never own an Xbox.

inFAMOUS_KRATOS2115d ago

everytime someone type " get both system " or best of both world...."

it grinds my gear, everyone has a preference doesnt have time for two consoles, if you like your the coolest guy on the planet having " both consoles " then be it.. stop typing it like your getting wanked by a model.

DigitalSmoke2115d ago (Edited 2115d ago )

They got no sense, 9 ou of 10 if they buy both its just to cover for their insecurity or ignorance.
Yelling "im not a Fanboy see!" could just as well be "I am an idiot" in these cases.

rainslacker2114d ago (Edited 2114d ago )

uhhh...or they could be buying both because they both offer something that the person guess would be exclusive games or some other quantifiable aspect of the machine or games that appeals to them.

I'll be buying a PS4 unless Sony shows they really dropped the ball on it's announcement. Already have a Wii U and am enjoying it. Already have, and will always have a PC. Have a Vita and love it. Have a Saturn, DC, SNES, NES, Turbo Duo, Gameboy Color, PS3, PS2, PS1, and Sega CD. Will buy a 360 if enough games come out for it that appeal to me, if not then oh well.

All that and I'm pretty secure with myself, and I'm definitely more informed than you when it comes to gaming based on your posts.

Edit @ Nintendoland below

Doesn't make him stupid. They are two separate racing games that offer something different from one another. Some people really like racing games, so the more the merrier.

steve30x2115d ago

Some people buy both so that they can have the titles that wont be on both consoles. I bought an Xbox 360 for Forza games and I have a PS3 for GT5.

nintendoland2115d ago

I almost feel sorry for you. I mean can someone be that stupid?

WalterWJR2115d ago

You must have a very rusty gear.

aquamala2114d ago

if one can more than afford it why not?

what's worse? someone that picks one console to own and bash the other consoles and games that they won't ever even play?

hazardman2114d ago

Keep grinding them teeth then, because I'm getting both. I'm a gamer who just happens to like what Sony and MS have to offer. The only thing cool is to know I can afford both!
