How Will the Seventh Generation be Remembered?

Last November we finally said goodbye to the PlayStation 3, Wii, and the Xbox 360 as we welcomed in the eighth generation of video game consoles.

On a personal note, it was a sad memory for the Wii-U and PS3, but the xbox 360 was a joy because the gaming industry made it available for both PS3 and XBOX 360, so I was able to play most games that I wanted to play.

I think so many people emphaize that the ps3 wasnt as good as the xbox306 that people actually beleive that. the only thing that ps3 didnt do was cross game chat. if anything MS will be remembered for cross game chat and gears but nothing really else
oh yeah RROD

Like I said in the message, it was a personal account. I was playing XBOX 360 a majority of the time during this system age. Now, I have a PS4 instead of the XBox One because some great games are landing on this system.

Same thing is said now people emphasize that PS4 is better then Xbox One and they try to believe that. Ultimately both coexisted back then and will with new generation. Better is an opinion on preference.

there are quite a couple of things that are going to be remembered for a long time from last gen.

1. RRoD
2. $600 PS3
3. Wii and casuals
3. Bluray vs HD DVD
5. CoD and how FPS took over the market
6. DLC
7. The closures of many studios

It will be remembered as the darkest moment of how the PlayStation was tested to its limits with a heavy assault from Microsoft and Nintendo but PlayStation got up, rose from the ashes turned around and showed the two who is boss.

I think it will be remembered as the strongest generation of consoles with the most innovation and experimentation.
