Nintendo's handhelds are still doing well, so apparently the appeal is still there, it's the WiiU and Nintendo consoles in general that seem to be the question.

With the exception of the runaway success of the Wii, the reception to other Nintendo consoles around the world has been rather lukewarm in comparison to NES & SNES days. I think a lot of it has to do with the bulk of the core console gamer/'Modern Gamer' migrating to Playstation & Xbox -- thi... #20

I'd say 3rd party exclusives/timed exclusives was pretty big factor too. A decent amount of big titles from 3rd parties were either only on PS2 and/or came out on PS2 first before they landed on another console: MGS2, MGS3, Final Fantasy's, Devil May Cry's, Grand Theft Auto, Tekken, etc... The PS2 was just the go to place for virtually everything when it came to software.

A lot of Japanese developers were just pouring out quality games back then on console too (m... #9

Watchdogs doesn't really look like it's a kind of game like Assassin's Creed where a pretty big foundation of the gameplay is around climbing and platforming, so for me the lack of a jump button is a little forgivable.

But it's kinda strange they left it out considering AC started out with no jump button and they added the jump button in later AC games. I just figured they'd continue the trend with WatchDogs and have the jump button already there since it&... #17

I haven't bought GTA5 yet, but I already know that I wouldn't be buying it again for the new gen if I had already bought it. For me to rebuy a Remastered Last Gen game for the New Gen it would need to have something new in the game as an extra incentive to rebuy and not just 1080p 60fps.

I intentionally passed on the last gen version of GTA5 because I thought it would eventually make it to PS4/XB1/PC in 2014, so I do hope the port is out sometime this year so I can f... #8

With all the cuts Sony's been making within their internal studios it's almost surprising Sony hasn't scrapped The Last Guardian after being in development limbo for ages and nothing new being shown since the initial reveal in 2009.

I reckon they've remained committed to the game because there's not a huge team working on it and the dev. budget probably isn't out of this world, and because Sony knows there's still a lot of interest in the title bec... #13

I've felt the same way about the downsizing making sense for Sony, but for different reasons. With Sony's recent financial woes I just don't think Sony can afford a big 1st party right now.

It costs a lot of money to maintain all those studios at the same time. To be honest a lot of times I've wondered how Sony afforded to have the amount of 1st party studios they did for so long, because despite all the exclusives only a select number of them sold really well... #4

Except for Jak X Racing I haven't missed out on a Naughty Dog title on Playstation, just haven't gotten around to buying Last of Us yet. A signed copy would be nice :) #71

I like new IP's as much as the next guy, but I also want to see some follow-ups to some of my favorite franchises from the past console gen. as well: RDR, Fallout, and GOW just as a few personal examples. I don't want to see those kinds of impactful franchises to be tossed to the side just because it's a new gen. I'd like to see a nice balance of revisiting some of the past greats (but not over doing it), while also making new IP's as well. #2.2

I think another GOW definitely will happen, there was the Easter Egg messages in GOW Ascension that seemed to point to more in the series, plus with the way GOW3 ended, I think for sure that Kratos will be seen again eventually.

Plus, the fact that Cory Barlog is back pretty much confirms to me that another GOW will be made. GOW2 was my personal favorite in the series, so I have confidence in him at the helm. Don't know what happened with Ascension. I thought it was a ver... #19

I already thought Uncharted for PS4 probably wasn't coming out in 2014 because of the short and vague teaser trailer-- which is usually an indicator that the project being teased is still a ways off.

I sure hope 'The Order' doesn't slip past 2014 because I don't know what other major title Sony might come out with in the Fall if it does slip because a lot of Sony's major teams recently released games in 2013 and it seems it may be a while before we... #8

It's no wonder WiiU 3rd party support has been so dismal, not a single 3rd party title that sold a million, wow...I didn't know that, but not that surprised because it's usually the typical Nintendo properties that sell on Nintendo systems. #11

If anything, I think it's important for Microsoft to sell the X1 in Japan to show Japanese developers & publishers that they at least acknowledge Japan's audience despite the fact that Xbox hasn't sold well over there.

I don't think Microsoft would be in good standing with some Japanese developers/publishers in the future if they didn't support to sell their own system over there.

I mean who knows, Microsoft pulling the plug on Japan a... #2.2

I would be more than willing to buy a Next-Gen Re-Release of a game that I had never bought before on PS3, but I would not rebuy a Next-Gen Re-Release of a game I've already played before that came out this gen...although I do have one exception, and it would be Fallout 3/Fallout New Vegas because neither games had particularly great graphics and they both had their fair share of bugs and performance issues.

The whole appeal of the HD remasters on PS3/360 was because they... #8

I've never used or bought any of the other PS cameras in the past, and more than likely I'll never end up getting one for PS4 unless the rumored VR Headsets do indeed require the PS Eye to function-- other than that the Camera will have no use for me. #18

I was on the fence between WatchDogs and AC4 being my first Next-Gen title, so I guess I'll just go with AC4.

When WatchDogs was first announced I was anticipating the game a lot, but a lot of my excitement for the game has waned away, so I'm not that bummed about the delay-- but still disappointing because it was one of the few games I had on my radar to pick up at launch for the new systems. #89

If anything, I think it could have a lot more to do with AC4 than GTA. Ubisoft probably wants to give Watchdogs some breathing room between AC4. #72.2

Rockstar had numerous opportunities to debunk Next-Gen GTA5 talk in the past, so I'm a little skeptical about this-- Just seems strange that now all of a sudden they want to say they aren't doing it, when they could've said so AGES ago. They're just trying to get as many people as possible to buy the game now instead of holding out for better versions on the new consoles.

Me personally, I will continue to hold out until for at least another 6 months or so. I j... #47

I never wanted a modern day AC game anyway. If they go too modern, I fear AC will turn into a 3rd person shooter-- for that reason I'd prefer the AC games don't go too far past the late 1800's. #8

Yeah, I agree about Jersey Devil and the universe it was set in. I'd love to see it get another shot.

On a side note, I was also thinking Sony Santa Monica would be a great candidate to maybe collaborate with on making a MediEvil game with Sanzaru Games given their Hack-and-Slash Combat experience with the God of War series. #3.1.1

Yeah, I remember ol' Sir Dan, I liked the MediEvil games too. There's a bunch of other games that fall into this particular game genre I'd like to see come back with new installments like: Tomba, Jersey Devil, and Blasto from Sony -- and titles like Gex and EarthWorm Jim from 3rd party's, just loved platformers like that back in the day. #3
