Playstation 4 & Xbox 720: Some Reasons To Worry

"The next generation of home consoles is tantalisingly close, we all know it, even if it hasn’t been confirmed by the likes of Sony or Microsoft. Our first official confirmation on the future of home consoles is set to be dished out in spades at The Future of Playstation meeting being held by Sony on February 20th.

While we’re all excited about the prospect of playing into a new era of gaming and marvelling at the wonderful technology that’ll be present in these next generation systems, there’s an awful lot that could go disastrously wrong.

Speaking completely as a person who enjoys an hour or two of playing video games each day, there are some features of the next-gen consoles being rumoured and leaked that worry me, and I’m sure they worry a lot of you too." - The Games Cabin (Microsoft, PS3, PS4, Sony, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

None...ps3 and 360 sold over 180 million units together already so why worry abo. Next gen
PopRocks359  +   964d ago
Check the sales figures. Separately they sold about 70 million units a piece. Put that together it's about 40 million short of what you just said.

Besides, the success of one system does not dictate the success of its successor (lol redundancy). Look at the margin between the PS2 and PS3. The PS3 has barely reached the halfway point of its predecessor.

Success will be determined on what games on there and what is on it to make consumers demand it.

"he PS3 has barely reached the halfway point of its predecessor."

The PS3 hasn't been on the market as long as the PS2 and it hasn't even reached $199.99 yet.

Just sayin.

yes, lets all put ourselves through some stress and worry over videogame systems ?

in my factual opinion, we need to have an up and down vote option for articles . . articles with the most down votes get blocked from ever posting another article for 6 months, after being evaluated by a professional . . the Article with the most up votes gets nothing but fame and recognition. .

While on one hand that may sound like a good idea, what's to stop a site from being blacklisted simply because some fanboy and his friends from any particular group decide they don't like the subject matter or tone of an article? The system we have isn't perfect, but it works well enough until they think of something better.

I hate the rampant doom and gloom and troll articles. But we can't have a situation on this site, where immature people, their friends, and their multiple accounts get to troll sites that have done nothing wrong but have a contrary opinion to them.

Seems a tad unfair if you ask me. There's nothing particularly harmful or misleading in this article, just some concerns that could arise with the next-gen consoles.

the fact that this guys starts his argument by saying this:

1. Used games

I buy a lot of games, probably too many..."

He Immediately kills his argument. You've already given the publishers areason why they wish to end the sale of secod hand games. You admitted that you 'buy too many' great for you but terrible for publishers.

What a tool. learn how to write!
chrish1990  +   964d ago
If you read the entire article, you'd see that there argument is fleshed out in a fair and objective way.

Who's the tool?

I read the article and all his points were terrible.

It's true Nintendo do new versions of games and consoles with some individuality ect not just a simple numbered strategy ie ps1,ps2,ps3,ps4 ect there more unique in their games approach as well as their consoles it's why i think Nintendo with WiiU and 3DS and maybe even a GameBoy U sometime in the future who know's but i do know Sony and Microsoft just slightly update games slap a number 2/3/4 on the end and expect you to get excited ?

yes, there is a need th worry, everyone thinks microsoft and sony have trillions of dollars and can make super pc graphical monsters, well take a look at this. http://www.businessinsider.... funny how the videogame media ignored this story, sony and microsoft are losing billions of dollars, in their other electronic fields, that no one thinks this will effect how much they spend on video games, fanboys are going to be in for a big shock, when sony and microsoft release under powered machines, in order to save money and make a profit.
