Cancel Christmas: 'Next-Gen' begins next Spring

Dealspwn writes: Ah, the "silly season." Every year we tend to see major publishers cramming their wares into the late September to mid-November release windows to try and steal a slice of the Christmas cake, turning the holiday into a glutted feeding frenzy of hype and exclusives that often buries deserving niche software and exerts a ridiculous strain on our bank balances.

So it was, so it is and so it will always be... but not this year. Though we've still got plenty of games to look forward to this holiday season, February 2015 is actually set to be sillier still, as yet another game finds itself releasing in what's set to be an utterly outrageous month of new-gen releases.

No need to "cancel Christmas" there are several games for the rest of the year. The question should be, can your wallet handle the winter after the Christmas rush.

Abash896d ago

Fall has a lot of big games, and Winter next year has The Order: 1886, Dying Light, The Witcher 3, and Evolve.

Quite a lot of big releases until the Spring so I dont understand how the article write can say "Next-Gen" begins then....

windblowsagain895d ago

Think Evolve has been pushed to 2015.

Vitalogy895d ago

And here I thought 'next gen' have been around since November 2013, guess I was wrong. /s

This author...How about you hold your CLICKBATE though...PLENTY of games coming out sept-november actually starting when the Walking Dead come out.

anticlimax895d ago

Destiny, The Walking dead, Fifa, Football manager, Forza, Shadow of Mordor, Alien: Isolation, Driveclub, Borderlands, The Evil Within, AC: Unity, Call Of Duty, The Crew, Civilisation: Beyond Earth, Far Cry 4, Dragon Age: Inquisition, New Tomb Raider.

Did I miss any? Best cancel Christmas, because if you do even half of these you'll be gaming straight through december.

deadchucky895d ago

Yeah it can with 1000$ just for games

OrangePowerz895d ago

Jep more than enough games with Destiny, The Evil Within, AC Unity and Rogue, LBP 3, DriveClub, Forza Horizon 2, Project Cars, The Crew, Halo MCC, Advanced Warefare, Sunset Overdrive and plenty more.

ZombieKiller895d ago

Most of my games are coming out/been delayed until 2015, but I'm actually happy about that as I can take a small break....or at least my wallet can. My plan for this year is
Far Cry 4

Next year is a different story.

Arkham Knight

'Next-gen'? Which company is launching a new console?

Strangelover895d ago (Edited 895d ago )

Valve - Steam Machines

Vitalogy895d ago

They can't seen to drop the 'next gen' expression from their headlines, probably think it'll give them more clicks.

theshredded895d ago (Edited 895d ago )

they mean real next gen.The consoles are missing basic features.What game was a real next gen game that was worth upgrading from ps3/x360?none with Resogun being the only exception out of all games

FullmetalRoyale895d ago

All of them that I purchased were worth the upgrade. It's a bit of a douchey thing to do to ask a question, then answer it yourself. You clearly are here to tell everybody the one way to interpret reality. You're way. The way in which nothing is ever good enough for anyone, and everything should be more, and free!

all 8 gen consoles have been released. Games are games, regardless of the hardware generation.
