Do We Need New Consoles?

Many claim that consoles are no longer relavent or central to gaming. Everything revolves around indie, mobile, and Steam these days, it's sometimes hard to imagine that many people are actually that excited for another costly box from Microsoft and/or Sony. But there are good reasons why a new console generation would benefit us all, even the most ardent and proud of the PC elite. (Dev, Indie, Industry, Microsoft, PC, PS3, PS4, Sony, Steam, Tech, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Close to a decade since these have been announced and ur seriously still asking this?
I'm sorry if this sounds mean but what is wrong with the writers of these articles asking this all the time in here? Do they just want to play ps3 and 360 forever without upgrading to next gen?

New consoles were needed 2-3 years ago.
Karpetburnz  +   1017d ago

ChrisW  +   1017d ago

Uninformed men still raises questions that wise men answered a thousand years ago.

Seraphemz  +   1017d ago
Do we need iPhone 6? Or iPad 5? Or Galaxy S4..

Of course we dont NEED them, but people want THEM.

Stupid question.
JAM_brz  +   1017d ago
Man, actually I NEED them, and not just want.
JAM_brz  +   1017d ago
No, we don't. Lets all get back to Atari's.
Gimmemorebubblez  +   1017d ago
Do we need these stupid articles?
Jek_Porkins  +   1017d ago
Well the good news is that thanks to the Wii U, we'll probably see pretty solid 3rd party support on the PS3 and Xbox 360 for years to come, so if you aren't able to buy new consoles at launch, you can always hold onto what you've got and save up. I think the quality of the games coming to current consoles is probably going to be better than what comes to next gen systems at start.

There is always a bit of a wait before the new consoles hit their stride.
Captain Qwark 9  +   1017d ago
i dont. id like them but if they didnt drop for another 2 years i wouldnt care. i have 170 games for 360 and 30 for ps3. i havent beaten all of them ( not even close in fact ) and i love buying older games for cheap. it will be a while before i "need" them personally.

all that said, ill still buy both the ps4 and 720. on day one if they are BC or have dark souls 2, prob 6 months later if not

example, this year i get....
gta v
gears 4 ( maybe, i may not get it. 3 sucked )
dead space 3
the last of us
ni no kuni

just to name a would take me 1 year to get through all of those alone

Stupid question, these old consoles had their time. Holding Pc gaming back !!!
Hydralysk  +   1017d ago
Old consoles aren't the ones holding PC back, it's AAA publishers completely ignoring any PC game without a console port released on the same day.

In fact the consolization (for lack of a better word) is hindering many of the best games to get for PC. Skyrim and Far Cry 3 made the inventory system an incredible pain to use on PC because they just copied how it works on consoles...
Relientk77  +   1017d ago
I need and want a new generation, and a PS4
black911  +   1017d ago

PS3 is still pushing out AMAZING looking Exclusives. Just look at Ascension, The Last Of Us,and Beyond Two Souls.

What kind of question is that? The current consoles are handling so called next gen games like crap, the anti aliasing is extremely poor on them, textures and graphical effects are suffering from resource usage by the next gen physics in games.

New consoles would finally bring the gaming to the next level. The games are fine, but graphically they could have been better on consoles. Just look at AAA games on PC, especially PC exclusive games.
FrigidDARKNESS  +   1017d ago
Yes new consoles Sony and Ms owes it to gamers to increase the gaming experience.
hellvaguy  +   1017d ago
Do we "need" anything other than food, clothing, and shelter? No.

But, we "want it", now damn it.
SITH  +   1016d ago
Another do we need next gen consoles. Why don't people just repost old articles with the exact same title? They are coming, need is an individual decision. What you may not need, is what I might very well need.
NYC_Gamer  +   1016d ago
I want new consoles and plus they are coming regardless
stefan771  +   1016d ago
No. There's plenty of power left in current gen
