Taking a look at the state of the industry and questioning if now is the time that Sony and Microsoft should release new hardware.
Regardless if it's next year or a couple years the things I'm looking most foward to are new IPs. This has become the trilogy generation and as much as I have loved Gears, Mass Effect, Uncharted, Killzone and Bioshock I am really looking forward to some new titles.
Ya. Some great IPs were started at the beginning of this gen then everyone kinda coasted. I hated that... Hopefully next gen will be better than that aspect.
Judging by all the day one patches, complaints about online content corrupting saves, server issues, saves that can't be deleted and hacking, they need to get this generation right first...
With that you could basically just drop it and invest in the new generation. Cause fixing "bugs" after so many years to get it right is just not worth it.
Not til at least 6 months after Starhawk releases.
Based off of my facial expression when I played the Battlefield 3 demo on my PS3, yes.
For nintendo? Hell yeah, they needed a new system. THe wii just doesn't cut it anymore. Ill keep it for the epic experience of Zelda Skyward Sword, but other than that it's not gonna keep my interest. Nintendo is doing the right thing by releasing the wii u in 2012 For microsoft and Sony? I said so as well, their consoles are starting to lose interest and the sales have been really down, I think a 2013 is a good release window for them.
Is it time to stop posting articles like this? Seriously, they'll get here when they get here. Was the anticipation this... saturated before the start of this gen? What about the start of last gen? While I'll be happy to see the progress the companies have made with their systems, I'm also happy with the massive backlog of games I have now.
only thing this GEN. missing is VARIETY of multiple games not the same few dev. making same games over an over calling it variety. (FPS an MULTIPLAT) over and over. we gamers should not be forced!!! to choose only FPS games. back in the day N64,SNES,NES,SAGA Genesis,PS1,PS2 had VARIETY!!!! now down to 2 formats FPS AN MULTIPHAT gaming with cleaver way to suck more money from gamers call "Mandatory DLC" by making half ass games. if this is the FUTURE of gaming "illegally" stealing money with a front call DOWN LOAD CONTENT i'll pass. thats like saying if you want to finish my game PAY more to see the end.
