With new consoles debuting, cheap Android game systems on the market, and E3 around the corner, 2013 is shaping up to be an exciting time for gaming.
It's a mess
Hopefully E3 sorts it all out.
I'll hold on to the 360 for a few more years...watch the fall out.
Surprised to see a higher percentage of people wanting the Xone over the PS4. With what has been revealed so far that is troublesome. Anyway to touch on a few subjects: Mobile games are awesome. I love killing a little time on Minecraft and can spend a good deal of time on GTA with my PS3 controller connected. Full on games like FF, Chaos Rings and GTA do provide incentive for a core audience to dabble in a session on a mobile device. Yes, I don't take mobile gamers seriously, but there are some cool games on the platform. Plants vs Zombies is a great example of a quality time killer that suits the mobile platform. Shame all games aren't this good. I also don't use my Console exclusively for gaming. I use it for light web browsing (although I mainly grab my phone), Netflix, Youtube, Blu Rays and DVD's. If I'm not playing something, I'm watching something. I doubt I will use many social features next gen. Finally, I am up to now planning to support a PS4 at launch. That could change at e3 if they restrict used games and in which case I will more than likely go Wiiu and PC. If I decide I need another console it will be the PS4.
