Why The Xbox 720 And PS4 Don’t Excite Me I’m going to take a change of pace here and attempt to tell you why the Xbox 720 and PS4 don’t excite me. Trust me I know what you’re thinking and nobody likes a smart ass complaining about something we’ve yet to see, I don’t like those type of writers either. I’m not here to convince you that any of what I say is a fact, it’s just a harmless opinion.

I understand that whenever you write about something that hasn’t been officially revealed you’re basically playing with fire. There’s a good chance I’ll anger people and not everyone will agree with my opinion but that’s fine, just as I express myself here I would like you the reader to also have a voice.

So the writer isn't excited about "something he doesn't gawd awfully know much about" yet writes about an article about it.

Someone is bored and needs attention or what?
I've yet to find any opinion piece interesting, hell I don't even know why N4G even allows them.

N311V2007d ago

Yes you are bored and you do need attention.

Your critism was unduly harsh. The author clearly states that not much is known about nextgen and that his article is strictly his opinion. If you dislike articles about people's opinion perhaps you should refrain from giving yours.

I read the ps4 section of the article and frankly, it's an opinion about nothing.

You say, "At the time of writing we don’t know an awful lot about the PlayStation 4". Well don't write an article on why you're not impressed then. You say you feel you're entitled to give your opinion despite this, but the fact that OFFICIALLY the ps4 doesn't even exist yet, no specs, no games, no services, NOTHING announced yet, is a pretty frickin big ass point actually. So don't write an article like this

You do not know what they will announce. You can imagine, but you do not know. End of.

You seem to state everything the ps4 could possibly announce and say its nothing amazing, but lets take for instance the possibility of Cloud gaming. If it were to exist, cloud gaming may actually be one of the most amazing and historic moments in gaming history. Because with a simple Internet connection, you could be streaming games of the absolute highest possible graphics conceived, and would do away with the need for new consoles. All processing would be done on their end and we would be streamed the images. So imagine Gran Turismo 6 with the highest possible graphics. It would make consoles continuously on par with the highest spec pc's, forever.

But that's just conjecture. Instead your article just says, "meh graphics upgrades aren't enough these days, wah wah wah, and we know nothing official about ps4".

This article is an opinion about absolutely nothing, and worthless because we know nothing officially.

I'm basically trying to say I agree with Ambrosia

Hicken2007d ago

It's not very wise to give your opinion on something when you know so little ABOUT it. That makes you look foolish.

And yet that's the whole premise of this article.

I think that rather speaks for itself.

"Why The Xbox 720 And PS4 Don’t Excite Me"

So tell us what does exite to? Killing million and making this world a worse place to live? Controlling the food and making us eat GMO food .. you are a disgrace for the world $*#& mason, go hide in a cave.

Mounce2007d ago

What Ambrosia said.

I hate Unwarranted-Self-Importance articles or better yet, people who are blog-makers or 'Journalists' or whatever this person calls himself, he likes has Special Snowflake Syndrome where he thinks his opinion should always be met with open arms even if he doesn't know anything about the very thing he feels opinionated about.

This is one of my pet peeves with this generation of society, I've run into more god damn people who try to force their opinion as unique or merited, warranted, something that has to be accepted because THEY said it. TOO MANY TIMES! Opinions are individualized....but they certainly still need grounded, reasonable logic as to why. Like a theory needs to be made, and a hypothesis, research and testing before you come to a conclusion, an a Conclusion in a manner. The problem? Too many come to a Conclusion, with zero evidence, zero logic, and they expect it to be accepted because they're a Human Being.

Anyone else fucking sick and tired of that broken, low-self-esteem 'logic'?

Are you Molyneux's distant cousin or something?

N311V2007d ago

I disagree. To a lot of gamers graphics do matter. My problem with the argument that if graphics matter get a PC, is that the PC is still often limited by current consoles, games are developed to the lowest common denominator. There is also the premise of better AI and more immersive worlds which on top of improved graphics gets me excited. I believe gamers will jump aboard the nextgen train in droves.

cervantes992007d ago

I hate that response "Get a PC". I have a PC but to this day I still cannot play the games I like to play. You know Uncharted, Gears, Halo, Heavy Rain and so on.

dafegamer2007d ago

Yet i cant play Ratchet and Clank, LittleBigPlanet,Zelda, God of War, Uncharted,Infamous on my pc, so whats the point in buying one then?

EbeneezerGoode2007d ago (Edited 2007d ago )

I *HAVE* a PC and a fast one at that and will even buy a geforce titan when they are out AND oculus rift! am as graphic hungry as they come.

YET what Cevantes99 says is true, it's not just about owning a fkin PC!!!! Those PS3 exclusives are amazing games, I've had more fun on the PS3 the past 2 years than anything on my PC cos of lack of really good games on it! This will change soon thankfully but you NEED to have a good pc AND a top console to enjoy everything and PS3 + PC make the best combo on the planet right now for variety, ability and fun.

Bring on PS4! CAN NOT WAIT! Uncharted 4 alone is worth the price of the entire console! (so long as it's more like uncharted 2 and less like the 'too flash' Uncharted 3 - which was still good by most standards)

hazardman2007d ago

I look at it like this, having great graphics with shitty gameplay is like having a fineass chick who is stupid as hell!!

Because you can't play Super Mario Bros. on them?

sonic9892007d ago

the writer is a joke haaahaaa did he forget that microsoft is the one company that offers the graphics accelerator which is known as the direct x so microsoft wont shoot themselves in the foot allowing pc to out do their xbox by a mile cause they want to brag about it
the guy is a nintendo fan and in a silly way
i was hoping for sonic to join the ps all stars rather than smash ( with mario ) but sega are stupid morons sometimes

strickers2007d ago

Idiot. If new consoles don't excite and the possibility of new games, you have the wrong hobby.
When has any hardware Gen not delivered exciting new types of game and more polish versions of what has gone before? Go and take up fishing.
