"We've already seen great games as the Microsoft Xbox 360 hits two years while the Sony PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii reach their first birthdays. Gamers have enjoyed countless titles, especially those who grabbed consoles during launch, but how can we say if those games are next-gen? It wouldn't be fair to say games haven't improved since the last generation, but some arguably don't step up much aside from having better graphics.
Fanboys talk about specs of their machines or what their consoles can do. But what is there that separates the new from old? Is it the surround sound audio? Online capabilites? Motion sensing controllers? With so many questions, we can at least be certain that game design plays a major role."
