PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720 to Start Gaming Renaissance

Onvideogames writes:

As per the industry giant GAME, retail sales for the UK gaming is going to be huge due to the Xbox 720 and the PlayStation 4. The company currently declares this week that preorders for the PlayStation 4 consoles are already doing great. This announcement serves as an encouraging comment that follows an earlier statement from ShopTo which cited ‘unprecedented’ demand for the PS4. (PS4, Tag Invalid, Tech, Xbox One)

When I think of a gaming renaissance, I think of developers being more creative with games, and using their resources to make an experience one could immerse themselves into. I think of this, and not just the sales involved with it.

Well said. Its diversity, not sales and profits.

Well said, there does seem to be a big problem with creativity in the industry these days. I guess it must be hard to come up with new ideas since it feels like everything has already been done but it doesn't really seem like devs are trying to create new experiences anymore.

It's too early to say so.... But let's hope next-gen becomes better than the current one.

I too hope next gen is better of course, but this gen had some rock solid titles.

Heavy Rain, Dante's Inferno, every God of War game, Ass Creed games, MAG, Batman games, Darksiders 1&2, Dark and Demons' Souls, etc......

This gen really did kick some ass. If one could pry themself away from the COD fad, they would see all the amazing games.

well the PS4 is already shaping up to become a great console so to me it's no surprises that pre-orders are doing well.
im also guessing many players are holding off buying games as of late because the current systems are a bit dated an with the new consoles just around the corner it's time to save up. there's definitely going to be a spike this holiday season..

I am waiting to enter my pre-order for PS4 until I hear the price. Then I will make a decision whether to buy at launch. I'm glad next gen has finally arrived. Now we can focus on games again for 5 more years instead of hardware.

for that to happen we would have to see more new and creative IP's and not companies focusing on sales and canning franchises cause they did sell 10 million copies. Also to stop shoehorning multiplayer in every game imaginable

I have to agree. I know there is a lot of hate on here for Nintendo but they do make some of the best SP games each gen.

For me I would like to see less MW FPS games and a lot more new IP's that take gaming in different directions. LBP I thought was a nice and refreshing IP to come out of this gen but ide like to see more. I think this is one thing we miss from the last 2 gens. Game like Abe, JSR and more.

The biggest problem with gaming this gen is everyone wants to be like the best selling IP rather than there own take. BF, MoH, Homeland, Homefront ect all want to be a cod. Res had opened its self up to action game. FF just lost its way this gen.

There has been some amazing games this gen to but I do want to see more verity in types of games and to see some of the older IP's to go back to what made them the must have games when we 1st played them.

Im looking forward to next gen and so far im enjoying MarioU, ZombieU and Lego City and I also look forward to seeing what both Microsoft and Sony Offer us this time around to.

i agree with everything but the final fantasy part, yes im tired of lighting but the first game wasnt all that bad especially after post game, and i was able to play type-0 through a torrent, and that game gives me faith, it was really good and i think it should have come to consoles or atleast got localized
mcstorm  +   378d ago
I could not get into the 1st FF of this gen so I did not play the others as I kind of lost interest in them and I also had a lot of other games to play to. I may go back and give them a go.

Playstation - Yes
Xbox - Not so much

Its time for a universal console. One console to rule them all then the big 3 will have to make innovative games to compete with each other.

It would be crazy to have to buy 3 dvd/cd players to enjoy all the films and music you like its time to stop this madness i think the economic future needs one affordable console with free online play and one handheld as-well most of use simply cant afford to buy everything we want in the gaming industry. It takes a serious amount of cash to support sony, microsoft, nintendo and valve at the same time

So basically u favor communism/socialism over capitalism? U realize that one company vs several would be the worse thing ever right? The price would go way up and the quality way down with no competition. Kinda the entire basis of capitalism. Did u sleep thru econ 101?
