What's next for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Wii U?

The Daily Star writes "The big games firms are about to reveal a ton of new hits.

Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo have been beavering away behind the scenes on dozens of secret titles to go on sale at Christmas and beyond.

And they'll reveal all at the annual E3 games event in Los Angeles on June 10.

Here's our predictions for what surprises you can expect from the top three this summer." (PS4, Wii U, Xbox One)

What's next?

A metric crap-ton of great games for all three, that's what's next!

2014 is a good year to be a gamer![especially if you're rich enough to go multiplatform]

I agree. I own a Xbox one and WiiU at the moment and am picking a PS4 up when Driver Club is out. Biggest issue I am having at the moment is getting through my games. I have Mario 3d World, DK, Pikmin 3, Splinter cell, Luigi U, Forza 5, BF4 and Pokémon x to finishing off getting through. Got next week off work so going to have a massive gaming week. Hate getting old you get less and less time to play games lol.

Know how you feel. I work all hours and have two very young children; as a result, my backlog has ballooned to ridiculous levels...

GuruMeditation not good is it. I don't have kids but I think the day I do will be the day I no longer have time to be a gamer lol.

i just hate getting old in general.
but i do nothing but game :) and at the moment there is no real game out now that really intrests me on the ps4.
dont get me wrong i have owned all the games and had a good share at them well when i say all i mean like cod fifa ac thief and im playing final fantasy a realm reborn, but i wont renew the free subscription as elder scroll is going to be better mmorpg imo

pheature I feel the same as you for the PS4. Driver Club is the game im excited about on the PS4 and this is when I will pick one up as KZ, Infamous ect don't interest me as they are not my type of game.

It really depends on what you are into to what console you should get. Getting old is not too bad and I keep fit and work with younger people in the hockey team I run so it keeps me feeling young (well that's what I think)

@GT67 I go by the saying we are as young as you feel (My Grandad says that and he is 84 and thinks he is 21 most of the time lol) I agree getting older sucks in some ways but great in others. Cant wait for the day I say to my own kids let play X game together as I do it with my younger brothers and sister now when they come round.
Be interesting to see what I would be like if I make it to my 80s to see if I am still playing games or watching repeats of things that are on TV now.

What's next for Wii U, PS4 and X1?.. Awesome games like exclusives and multiplat AAA titles??.

Whats next you ask??! Next sony, microsoft and nintendo rape my wallet after e3
HacSawJimThugin  +   359d ago
I dunno about the XB1 or Wiiu, but I foresee PS4 games dropping to 900p. Imo more frames are more important that res because frames directly affect game play unlike a high pixel count.

I want Nintendo to return to its glory days. Make a controller without a gimmick and I'm on board until then whatever.

MS are about to shock the world with DX12 for PC and consoles. Add in Azure and you got a deadly combination brewing. Can't wait for E!!
Jaqen_Hghar  +   359d ago
how is announcing 2 things that everyone already know about going to "shock the world"? They already said DX12 and Azure would be used with Xbox. Also the great thing about PS4 is you don't need to drop fps to get to 1080p. Remember these are launch games that were ported to PS4 (multigen stuff) and yet they're reaching 1080p or 900p at stable framerates. A man has been playing INfamous and noticed no drops even when blasting massive amounts of enemies.

"In marketing language, a gimmick is a unique or quirky special feature that makes something "stand out" from its contemporaries. However, the special feature is typically thought to be of little relevance or use."

How is the gamepad a gimmick?

- Off-screen play / video streaming
- A second screen for local multiplayer
- TV Tag
- Typing
- Drawing
- Video chat
- Voice chat
- Exclusive gameplay features

If you wanna talk gimmicks, let's discuss the PS4 controller's touchpad, for starters...

"I want Nintendo to return to its glory days. Make a controller without a gimmick"

If this bothers you so much then why don't you just use the Wii U pro controller?

Wow, there's a lot of poor info in the Nintendo portion:

"Nintendo tend to launch fresh Zelda titles late-on in their console's life cycle."

- Wind Waker: ~1 year into Gamecube
- Twilight Princess: ~5 years into Gamecube / Wii launch title
- Skyward Sword: ~5 years into Wii

"But while the Wii U is only a couple of years old..."

- Completely inaccurate.

"The only unplayed card left in the Japanese company's stable is Zelda."

- And Metroid, Star Fox, the unannounced Miyamoto project, and several more...

I swear, the majority of articles I see that discuss Nintendo's issues only parrot the poplar negative buzzwords with hardly any research at all.
