NowGamer: EEDAR's Jesse Divnich thinks next-gen consoles are still on course for 2013
it depends on how threatened MS and SONY feel from the Wii U. but at the same time if they wait a couple of years people will have got past the new console craze with the Wii U and see that the two new true next gen consoles are the next step. it wont hurt them to wait a couple of years imo. as long as they make the wanted jump to next gen they will be fine. but then it will lead to the war between MS and Sony again.
"Two new true next gen consoles." That statement couldnt be more ignorant....Obviously 360 and PS3 offer very little for you as whatever kind of gamer you pretend to be since you seem more interested in spreading your bias ignorance in every Wii u article.. If you ask yourself this question "Which would i rather do, play some games or spend my time whining about something I'll never own." and you choose to do the later then I'd seriously question your status as a gamer of any kind.
both Sony and MS will change their strategies when it comes to new consoles if the Wii U becomes a phenomenon like the Wii, the controller looks like an Ipad and people ate that up, all of this hinges on how Nintendo will market the system, they did a pretty damn good job with the Wii connecting the casual crowd and getting them on board, we will see what their strategy for the Wii U will be, having their top selling franchises and some 3rd party devs on board when it launches will only make it more appealing to not only the casual crowd, but core gamers who would be intrigued by an HD Nintendo console
We dont even know it's actual specs and we've barely seen what it's capable of so it's all speculation anyway. In my opinion, i think Sony will do the same thing as they did with the PS Vita, reveal at the Playstation meeting 2012 in January and release it Q1 2013. In fact, i believe it'll be almost a repeat of this gen with MS being next one to reveal their Next gen plans and Sony releasing theirs last.
2013 is when the 8th gen begins. WII P will see it in 2020.
You mean Wii U And Me? :P
More like Wii U and Me and the Dog?
Actually 2017 or 2018. Nintendo does a 5-6 year console cycle.
2013 is a solid guess - exhaust the currently announced games schedule, then move on
Xbox 720 for an E3 2012 reveal, Halo 4 announced as launch title. No need for a new PlayStation yet. They still haven't fully explored what it's capable of yet.
its funny how PS3 fanboys think the PS3 has more power left.... the PS3 simply cant! it is massively bottlenecked by the crap amount of RAM it has and other factors that the xbox 360 suffers as well. ROFL thats like trying to squeze more power out of a nvidia Geforce 7900GTX for today's standards.
I've been saying 2013 for ages, does that make me an analyst? With the way the market is working out, Microsoft will definitely be announcing next year I think, releasing the year after. Sony will probably be 2014.
I find their use of the phrase 'next-gen consoles' humourous in this context; Completely sidestepping the Wii U as anything of the sort.
If i were sony i would get a ps4 out quick as i think the WiiU even them early graphics on Zelda and japenese garden look astonishing to say the least and devs saying that CGI is possible on next gen consoles well them demos were nothing short of amazing and would give CGI a run 4 its monet wow thm graphics on early dev kits are like 5x the ps3 already And if u think nintendo's 1st party devs are going to have trouble think again i cant wait to see what Retro studios have on this thing there art in metroids is the best along with bioshock imagine what they can do with WiiU i think Nintendo will show us the real graphics along with Crytek/valve/epic WiiU uses OpenGl 5.0 its more powerful than DX11 and DX12 in some respects nintengen.com
you would say something just as ridiculous. WiiU is going to be more powerful then the PS3 and 360 but please don't start acting like it's going to make them look obsolete. I highly doubt the WiiU is going to be some graphics juggernaut that Nintendo fans think it will be. Besides, by the time WiiU comes out, the PS4 and 720 will already be more powerful than it so it makes no difference.
We dont know if PS4 or 360 will be more powerful.. Sony already stated they werent going that route with the PS4 but I am sure you know more about their plans than they do..
Jesse Divinich is just another Pachter,rarely do his "analysis" ever reveal something meaningful aside from a headline grabbing line.
Make "NO" mistake about it... If the Wii U is successful one of the other two will copy the controller in some form. Mass market appeal doesn't care about graphics. Has it not registered to anyone the the last two gen's have been won by the least powerful console(PS2 and Wii)?
gotta agree with matey the tech demos are totally amazing cant wait to see what the wiiU pumps out also as early as the devs kits are they always get better as developers learn , so we are in for something realy special when it comes to visuals on the wiiU
sony and microsoft are just now selling and making a profit so they may decide to let the wiiu runaway with the next gen
Well that depend on how well the Nintendo Wii U grab the hardcore gamers attention. Now I believe the nintendo Wii U will most likely be a hit in the beginning; but to make it successful in the long run, Nintendo need to follow in the same footstep as Microsoft and Sony did, and buy out a least 1 or 2 gaming company to assure that they have enough games in development. That all Nintendo have to do to make the Wii U a success.Beside, isn't that what makes or break a gaming console???
