OSM: "Both companies have confirmed that they are currently developing their next generation consoles, namely the PS4 and Xbox 720, but what would you like to see them bring this time around?"
"One of the biggest advantages the Xbox 360 has over the PS3 is the hugely successful Kinect." Really....well heres my pitch "One of the biggest advantages the PS3 has over the Xbox 360 is more first part studios and exclusive games. "The hands free motion sensing accessory has really put the PS Move to shame" Erm....no it hasn't, the PSMove still sold pretty well without all that money spent on advertising, the PS Move was just so Sony wouldn't let Kinect take all the motion controller audience, they're too focused on us core gamers and the PSV to worry about the causal audience with motion tec. "however it has been rumored the PS4 will have this technology built in" and I highly hope that rumor is wrong, why would Sony do that, it would make no sense. I don't want to pay a load of money for casual crap that I won't use. Motion gaming is over Microsoft/Sony...come on
to me motion cotrolling isn't bad but no one has particularly done it right so all should have waited until they did have it perfected.
If they wanted to do motion crap then that shouldn't be there main focus for making a next gen consoles. As I said do people really want to pay for crap they aren't going to to use. They should do it seperate and release it after the PS4/720 comes out
Meanwhile Nintendo is : 1) Enjoying the huge bags full of money from casuals collected over the past Wii years. 2) Laughing at both Microsoft and Sony trying to fight over the casual leftovers.
A combination of silent hill, resident evil 2, siren and dead space! I'm sure every hardcore ps3 owner will want it then:)
Did you forget the Playstation 3 already has motion controls built in? It's called Sixaxis and they tried to see if it worked or not. You act as if Sony will remove the controller we are all used to and be forced to use motion controls on every game. I also fail to see why anyone needs to take such a defensive stance because Kinect has done well on the XBOX360 that they need to automatically counter with the Playstation 3's exclusives. This article is about what the hardware may or may not be and the online services that go along with it. This isn't an article for the pro-Sony people who flood this forum to pull out their list of exclusives they keep in their wallets. Geesh, lighten up people. No need to start another console war before the hardware is even out.
@egi The whole motion-boom is about to disappear, no chances it'll happen again, sure MS is smart to squeeze until the last drop with kinect, but that doesn't assure anything, now we'll see if the tablet-controller of the wii-u can win over the casual market like the motion-controller did O-T What I really want for the next gen is more focus on Single Player games (quality + length), more RPGs and way less shooters...
Defenitely more ram in both the systems. I want PSN service to remain free. That is the most important thing! I don't want to pay $60/year just to play online! Look at XBL, you pay so much ONLY to play online and all the rest of the stuff is accessible from any smartphone, laptop, computer. I want awesome graphics and I want the hardware to last long! This gen, M$ screwed up REAL Bad and they need to make sure they check the crap out of their next system before they ask us to give them our precious and hard earned $$$. Lastly, let bluray be the standard for the next-gen systems. Enough of this "WE COULDN'T FIT THE WHOLE GAME IN ONE CD". I mean, why should I have to suffer if Xbox doesn't have a high capacity media? My PS3 has a bluray so give us the whole content instead of asking us to buy the rest as DLC!! Oh and one more thing. No more crazy obssession with FPS! We want new IPs that are NOT just FPS!
ps move sold 8 million kinect sold 10million proof http://au.ps3.ign.com/artic...
8 million accessories is not the same as 10 million fully fledged motion units.
First sentence: Sony Computer Entertainment America LLC. (SCEA) today announced that more than 8 million units of the PlayStation Move motion controller for the PlayStation 3 (PS3) system have been sold*1 worldwide as of April 3, 2011.
Stop trying to spread false info about the Move numbers, Rush. Sony has made it very clear that they are talking about Move controllers, not the camera or nav. +1 Trolling for you, +1 Helpful for Gaden_Malak.
Yeah I hope the next pS and Xbox have NO MOTION controls, at least not as standard. I also hope THAT THEY MASSAGE MY JUNK while Im playing them.
I don't want to see DLC shafts. And Street Fighter 4, Street Fighter 4 arcade edition and Super Street fighter 4 kind of bs
I want 2 replaceable ram dims in the back of the console. And i mean retail ram not a special microsoft ram.
And that would be useful how? If you want replaceable ram then buy a PC lol. The entire point of consoles is to have a system that runs equal for everybody, So if a game works on 1 it works on the next, Without people needing to replace parts. If that trend came in next-gen, console owners would be half what it was this gen if not less since the majority of gamers are people looking to kill a bit of time quick and easy
@ Limewax Having a ram upgrade isnt new retard. The N64 did it and the games looked way better and ran at 3 times the frame rate after the ram upgrade. The games that needed the ram upgrade was sold with the upgrade. Consoles have done this before and it would help to extend the lifespan of the new consoles greatly. If the ps3 and xbox had ram expansion right now there would be no reason for new consoles. Ram is the main reason consoles are being held back today and thats cheaper than new hardware.
Playing video games should be a time of relaxation. I honestly don't want motion sensor gaming to become the norm.
In addition to AWESOME graphics, I want my PSN to remain FREE please!!
Frankly, a better quality of games than we got this generation. Sure there have been exceptions, but there's probably been twice as many disappoints too. Titles with short gameplay or missing features and long waits for games that just weren't worth it.
totally agree with you. we were promised games this gen that would do everything and got none of that. in fact a lot of games are worse this gen than last gen despite better graphics but graphics don't make a game,never has,it just makes it easier to see that's all. i prefer the older shooter / adventure games of last gen by far over this gen. i will say,next year's games do look more impressive than i've ever seen coming out of this gen but it will have taken a full generation of these consoles to finally make it's promises and that is not cool in my book [i don't have one by the way,i prefer magazines].
Are you serious? This gen has been unbelievable. By far the best games since the NES and SNES days. PSone and PS2 have great libraries. PS2 is unbelievable to be sure but this Gen has been incredible. I'm 30 years old and NES came out when I was 5, I have been around for every big console from NES on and PS3/360 have by far the best game. The only area that "may be" lacking could be the RPG category . . . Halo, God of War 3, Resistance, Gears of War, Uncharted, LBP, GT5, Forza, Fable, inFamous, Call of Duty, Battlefield, Killzone, Red Dead, Dead Space, Mortal Kombat, MLB The Show, Heavy Rain, Alan Wake, Demons Souls, Guitar Hero, Rockband, Dragn Age, Assassin's Creed, Mass Effect, Motorstorm, Metal Gear, Bioshock, etc. etc. This gen has been incredible.
The games this gen has been awesome, I will definitely agree on that. The community however has been populated by fanboys of all walks of life from consoles fanboys, PC fanboys, hackers fanboys, anti-anime fanboys... etc... making this generation one of the most polarizing ever, community wise. And don't forget the tweeners online who screams a lot. sheez... Oh and I agree with Dart89 and all those who replied to his comment. Cheap arz DLCs just blows either give us a complete game or a huge expansion with everything on it at one go and stop the small DLCs that in time will cost more than the actual game. You can fool the casuals and the tweeners but you won't fool us.
Yeah because of the better graphics we lost 16 player co-op like on the ghost recon games.
You can say the same thing for any generation of games.
More complete games and less dlc.
expansions > dlc
Also, if CoD expects people to keep buying DLC at $15 a pop next generation we had better be able to use that DLC on every subsequent CoD. $15 per map pack is too much to pay if it's going to be obsolete when the next CoD comes out. Next generation, both systems had better have bluray (or at least some high capacity disk). I don't want dlc. I want that content ON THE DISC. $60 is enough to pay. I don't want to be spending another $50 or more on dlc on top of that expensive $60. I also want game next gen to STAY at the current $60 pricepoint. $70 would be crazy!
there will still be DLC since some of it is made after the game comes out, but I would like more games to have large expansion pack DLC in stead of these little DLCs that we see so many of today. Im almost 100% sure the MS will have a blu-ray drive as well, since they will want people to be able to watch movies on it too and blu ray is the standard now. Also with the extra power, especially more RAM and faster reading blu ray drives, we could see some amazing games next gen taht couldnt be done at all this gen hopefully.
What i want most is multiplayer taking the forefront with games,not making it a last minute decision anymore. the modes will have to go back to last gen i.m.o.,less matchmaking and more player decisions,letting there be lobbies and us making rooms for friends to play in by ourselves if we want. more choices.
I think they should build games up with mutiplayer in mind from the start instead of tacking it on to amazing single player games or make Co-op/online DLC We need more amazing single player games where the dev time isn't spilt between online play and single player.
motion gaming is not great because its not one to one yet... and its still hard to keep the player immersed.. once we get to holographic displays, you may be able to immerse a person a lot better, in 60 years. lol
All the problems I have with the PS3 can be fixed with Firmwares. 1.Better Web Browser (Google Chrome) 2.XMB redesign(optional) 3.In-game Music 4.Better PSN new look also additions like more max number of friends 5.Cross game chat
I would like the ps4 to have a powerful dx 11 or dx12 graphics card with heavy tessellation support, plenty of random access memory, and a better cell processor. If they can pull this off and have a good price then I would be a very happy taco.
I don't understand all the disagrees. It's only an opinion, and if they could pull it off i'm sure all of you would love it.
What i would want from them is at least 1080p on all games and 60fps. Thats almost the only thing missing from the current system that i'd really like and thats one of the primary reason why i buy all my multiplatform games on PC.
id like to see better co op in all games
No dumbass fanboys that's what I want from them.
Like I said in a previous article, 4gigs of RAM minimum.
Some people scoffed at the idea of 10gigs of ram a couple weeks ago, but that isn't far off the mark. In fact, 8Gigs of ram + 2gigs of video ram = 10. Those specs are pretty common today. In fact, in Fry's Electronics local ad last week, 4 gigs of Kingston X 1600 ram was on sale for $29.99 no rebate involved. Here's some more ram ( http://www.buy.com/prod/cor... ) I guess what I'm saying is, considering that consoles aren't only game machines now and never will be again (Think 3D @ 1080p at 120 frames while PVR/DVR recording and video editing), considering consoles need to last 6 and more years now, and considering that consoles won't be out for 2 and 3 years minimum, no one should be too surprised if the next generation of consoles has MORE than 8gigs.
I hope you're right.
I'd like both to have wi-fi, to come out the gate as the slim/energy saver models(so we don't have to rebuy.)for them both to have at least 300GB with brand name drives we can buy instore if say we want to upgrade our memory, both to be able to play their old library with no cds to insert prehand to upload data. PS4 should be able to play ps1-3, same goes for 720 as it should be able to play all its older titles. Also and this is such a shot in the dark but companies should eaither pick on or the other options i lay infront of you: 1If you charge us to play online then dont make us pay DLC, eaither have it all on the disc or the DLC should be free if we purchesed the pass. Both systems to run as stated above in 1080p not streched but true 1080p at 60fps. Both systems(PS3 im looking at you.) to include headsets or earpieces for online play. and xbox(looks over) Drop the batteries and go with chargable controls right out the gate. PS3 take note from 360 and include party chat..Please. and product test these before giving them to us. No redRing or YellowLight. Remember we the gamers pay for your houses and the life style you afford. all we are asking for is alittle respect in the quality of the product you give us. Also give 720 and PS4 a good search engine like google Chrome or something, and maybe toss in there the ability for us to instal 2nd party serves and such. Last but not least DO NOT take features away from us that WE payed for. I say these things as a Gamer and NOT a fanboy because like this gen I do have both systems, and i plan on buying both next gen. p.s Sorry for the wall of text, and anything that might of seemed like a rant.
Well said man, I'm in total agreement. Bubble for you!
"If you charge us to play online then dont make us pay DLC, eaither have it all on the disc or the DLC should be free if we purchesed the pass." Even though that's what should be done I doubt it will happen. If anything we'll probably get another price increase for Xbox Live.
If microsoft kicks the price up anymore they better give those who pay least can play the Xbox arcade games for free or something. Don't jack a price up on a online experience you cannot promise will be worth the increase. And if Sony charges for online I'll pay it since its only fair i suppose since this gen i paid for xbox and didnt complain..would make me look like a hypacrit if I did bitch lol.
@cupcake_ownage If MS ever decide to make another price increase than I will never buy a gold membership again. $60 is the price of a new game and we're spending it for the privilege to play online. Nothing more. Everything else they offer like Facebook, Twitter, etc. I can access them on my Iphone, PS3 and PC for free.
i'm all for graphics.that's expected for next gen.but i want: 1.physics for all objects in the game. when you interact with any object it should behave like that object would. 2.interactive backgrounds. when i don't have a key,i should be able to shoot off the lock.when i got a bomb,blow a hole in the wall.set fire to a tree and create a forest fire.don't have a weapon?pick up a chair and throw it at the enemy. 3.more simulated weather in a game. not just for a level.all levels.play the level one day,it's sunny.play it again on another day,it's cloudy.it's raining one minute then snow is falling the next. 4.global illumination. i want real lighting all the time every time.not baked,cooked,steamed or country fried. 5.real consequences for my actions. if i drive 100 mph into a tree,i want that game avatar to die as i wrap that car around that tree.get shot excessively,bleed to death.that kind of thing. and....somebody make me a got [email protected] horror game like 28 weeks later where i have to survive for days looking for food and dodging a ridiculous amount of zombies while in a big city.give me WALKING DEAD or give me death....with a bite...he he
In other words you want the PS4/Xbox720 to be like PC gaming right now....:P
better consoles, that run fast and do some sweet graphics 60 hz or 120 hz, ps4 will ahve an online feature where we have to pay its likely to happen , more amazing games. xbox well more graphics same features as i mentioned before and more exclusvies. Cause PS4 thnx to MS showed how online gaming goes with a bit of money involved, i hope that the moeny we pay sony uses it better, as in advertisement, buying new studios, who knows maybe trow some dedicated servers here and there. i know i would.
I hope Sony will keep the free online bussiness model. That is the edge they have over superior Live service.
I want them to not break so easily.
you read my mind Scott. Im sick of having these pieces of crap burn out on me ever year or so. I never had hardware issues till this gen. Now I'm prone to make sure I add warranty to any console i buy. Before my playstations and nintendos lasted until I sold them 4 to 6 years later.
The good old days. My Xbox 360 lasted just over a year but within that time a fan stopped working, heat warped the disc tray and controller gateway on the console itself broke. My first PS3 lasted about two years before the blu ray drive failed. I believe that before we get excited about what the next iteration of consoles can do, we should just hope they are made to be durable.
I am with you there,I have had both a 360 and a Ps3 die on me, not once did I have that problem with any previous generation.
Full games!!! NO FU#@KIN' download content on the same day/ week or month bullshit!!!
Who will be the first to make it cloud only much like Steam? Personally I think Sony should stick with Blu-Ray and up the read speeds. Make it at least a 1 terabyte hard drive and add more ram. They need to keep the cost below $500. While still keeping the main portion of PSN free. Microsoft needs to either come out with its own proprietary disc or use Blu-Ray as well. Have a two-tiered XBOX Live service that allows people to play online for free and a premium service. Also an advanced Kinect included along with a revamped controller. They too should have a terabyte hard drive in every system. What we don't need is the next XBOX and Playstation to be as similar in both play-ability and software. At least Nintendo tries to do something different.
I like to see the next Xbox use Bluray and the PS4 to have a 1TB disc. Plus it be nice to see consoles with 1TB hard drives or SSD.
Blu ray is a bad idea...sure its big in memory but it reads alot slower than dvd. And games will get bigger and bigger if you dont want installs to be 20-30 gb then get the speed if dvd and memory of bluray. Their both flawed for gaming but luckily the hard drive takes care of the mistake of bluray while dvd is left small.
Only PS3 Bluray is slower, you seem to miss that part.
PS4 and Xbox 3 are probably the last consoles we will see or I want to see. Death to overpriced machines and incomplete games. I want OnLive to expand with more games and become a choice of gamers. I see this as the new wave of the future. No overpriced machines and a nice flat rate for all your games. I'm ready for this service to really take off. All it needs is developers to see the potential. I have it now and it is very convenient and can play on ANY PC with a connection!!
It is very convient to play my Xbox with... or without a connection.
. I hoping for a Xbox 2012 holiday launch. This will be my last gen where I buy all the consoles. I'm sure AMD will have something special in mind for Xbox and I can't wait to see some demo's of the tech.
Slots for upgrading that's all..
Multi-tasking. I want to be able to play games while streaming music.
That is already available.
50 Gigs of ram 100 ghz Processor a gpu about 50 gtx 590s red ray drive all for about 449 euro
and while we're at it allow us to stack two or more of the same console. For example, got two ps4s? Well just connect them together and DOUBLE YOUR POWER!
No matter what we ask for and get there will always be a barrier hit. I just want that barrier to be far as possible from the launch day of the console so devs can give best quality games with no issues. Do that and we get the 64 player bf3, the full detailed skyrim, and the battlefield of Arma series. Give me the mmo's like wow, star trek, and star wars. Give devs what they want so devs give us plenty.
less focus on multiplayer and more on story or triple the funding for the story so we dont get half ass'd single player experiences cause people cry there is no multiplayer
