The new video game consoles from Sony and Microsoft about to hit store shelves are almost certain to be hot holiday gifts this year. The uncertainty for the games business is: What happens after Santa leaves?
Sure it is if you're buying a ps4. Can't say the same for the lesser camp.
i wouldnt say the x1 is a lesser console in all aspects. but ps4 for sure is awesome in all.
Is it midnight on Thursday yet?
wasnt about to be one of those guys who just comments based on the title, but i can see the article is from NY times. why do i have the feeling this articles going to be a whole lot of shite? gaming is exactly the same as its always been. i dont care how big of divas gaming devs have become or how much online changed the game. at the end of the day youre still sitting in front of the tv dedicating hours a day during holidays to this.
but iphone games. Why would anyone buy a PS4 or anxbone when they could play Angry Birds for a dollar?
260+ million consoles sold in the current gen higher preorder numbers then ever before I think console gaming will be fine.
Its going to be like the Ps2 days with the Ps4,so yes gaming is the same only better with 1080p
Cancelled my Xbox One pre-order. Tired of all the negative news about about games 2 weeks before it's launch. There has to be something wrong with the Xbox One. Color looks drained from the comparisons also.
Weaker gpu as compared to ps4
I just feel there will be something else. A little bigger than that.
I don't know about everyone else... But I personally can't help but feel this generation will be better than the last.
Jrpgs were pretty much a downer this gen. Most of my favorite gaming franchises from ages past didn't seem to do well this gen. Games were wayyyyy too short and easy. Consoles weren't that reliable. Games weren't so innovative. Motion controls were all hype and no substance. Games had lots of bugs and glitches and really no patches that fixed them. I had a lot of fun this generation but It really wasn't that special. I really hope next gen will be better.
There were tons of really great games this gen. Next gen will probably be better. JRPGS did suck this gen though, I'll give you that.
