How did this get approved? Sony hasn't announced a thing regarding their next PlayStation.

I think it's a theoretical statement.

BushLitter1541d ago

I think 'theoretical statement' is an oxymoron :P

pr0digyZA1541d ago

lol I know :P it's the only way to describe that sentence though.

ChunkyLover531541d ago

Microsoft and Sony haven't announced any new consoles.....what the heck is this?

As far as "next Gen" is concerned, I'm done. Games this gen were largely narrow and restricted in design, too focused on graphics which boiled down to brown and grey, and too many people blindly defending them.

@BushLitter:
Yes there's been so good and even great games, but even many of those have been overrated. Others have only split and polarized the fan base.

BushLitter1541d ago (Edited 1541d ago )

I agree to a great extent, but I have to say that in spite of that there were still some amazing games that came out this gen.

mr_badhand1541d ago

so in your opinion what Gen was best? What games do you consider great that you remembered?

Lets not let nostalgia cloud your judgment on how truly bad a** these last 5 to 6 years of gaming have been.

Godmars2901541d ago

The SNES and PS1 eras offered the best balances between gameplay and graphics, while the PS2 had too many games to really complain about. Its also where things started to go wrong since the system caught flack for failures in others like the Gamecube, Xbox1 and especially the Dreamcast and for killing Sega.

I'm not letting nostalgia cloud my judgement, but rather my enjoyment of JRPGs and sprite animation based games, as well as my general disinterest in FPS, for which there's been a major scarcity of one, and too many of the other on HD consoles. Nevermind the push for MP and the death of SP.

Why come to a gaming news site if you don't even like games?

cpayne931541d ago

If you admit that there were good and even great games this gen, what do you mean you're done? I'm not a big fan of this gen, my favorite was the n64 and ps1 days, but there's been plenty of gems this gen to play.

Godmars2901541d ago

By "I'm done" I mean that it wont be day-one I buy the next system. Probably wont be year one.

cpayne931541d ago

Oh that makes more sense. I'll probably be the same way to be honest.

@Siren30 he didn't say he didn't like games... he said he didn't like most of the games from this gen.
