Pachter: ideas on Xbox 720, PS4, anti-used gaming, industry powers & weaknesses

In a full interview that just took place with Michael Pachter, talks with him about a variety of subjects ranging from gaming's strengths and weaknesses, to the likelihood of anti-used gaming hardware in the next-generation, to when he thinks the PS4 and Xbox 720 will be released, to how he believes the Wii U's at least one year head start on the other two companies will impact their success, and finally to his biggest concern with the next-generation of consoles.

Do any of you feel fatigued with the current line of games available and upcoming?

This is the 1st fall in a long time where I won't be getting a lot of games actually come to think of it I usually buy most of my fav games during the first 9 months

Borderlands 2 and dishonored are the only games I am buying tis fall and not fatigued what so ever. Q1-Q2 of 2013 have so many games how could ou even be fatigued? Also just because here will be new systems doesn't mean there will be games to purport them, usually isn't few years are boring with few good games so believe it or not ps3 and xbox360 will be doing well and supported well till at least fall of 2014 and possibly even 2015

If you feel fatigued by games I say take some time away from games than come back and you will be fine, I have been burned out over the years so taking some time away and coming back fixes that

Borderlands 2 will keep my wife and I occupied for awhile, we both played through the 1st one together. I just wish there were more customization for our characters, maybe a few more RPG elements.

Totally agree with you. Even though it is the end of the console life-cycle, there are still so many great games coming. I'm excited to be in gaming, whether or not next-generation consoles are on their way. It's good to be a gamer.

Lolz I've been saying that for months >_<

I agree. I am fatigued with shooters in general, be they 1st or 3rd person. I am fatigued with open world games, because they end up being a giant empty sandbox for the most part. I am also fatigued with heavily scripted games, that box you in and don't allow you to explore. What I am trying to say is that it seems to be one extreme or the other with games these days, and the industry not only needs innovation and originality, but BALANCE in their games. Few games have it, Fallout 3 comes close to a game that has everything, but its god awful to look at. Others come to mind but I don't want to post a wall of text.

Try Day Z. The mod is available but the standalone game is slated to hit around November.
