I agree it's about the games BUT the constant fps games aren't helping. Thankfully we have devs like Naughty Dog who deliver incredible new experiences.

I have a lot more faith in next gen tho. I personally think its all about the indies.

I'm an indie myself so I'm glad Sony is giving us our time in the lime light.

Constant fps like killzone, halo and call of duty?

I certainly would not call the PS4 or Wii U generic. Like any generation, exclusive games and features will push consoles to success.

Buy a bloody Wii U then. Looks like a really good console. The games will come.

Looking at the three consoles considered "next gen", I don't agree that they have few distinguishing features. Whether you like those features or not, each console has it's own.

I also think the next generation shows signs of a substantial upswing, not down.

If this generation is the Golden Age, then things are about to go Platinum.

Seeing how they get preordered like hotcakes I highly doubt it. The price, the accessibility is really a winner among the crowd.
