Gamnesia: "Are you excited for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One? I wouldn't blame you if you are. While many gamers might be starting to be happy with their Wii U or are still happily engaged with their Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, there is no secret that new hardware releases can get people excited. We recently got the iPhone 5s and 5c, Apple's annual phone release, and per usual new hardware and toys get potential buyers excited. It's especially notable with new console generations because they only come these days about once every seven to eight years. I would be kidding myself if I said I wouldn't love to have a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One proudly sitting under my TV next month. I was certainly proud of my Wii U launch console when I bought it day one.
However, unlike new versions of phones that can draw upon old features and applications to be instantly relevant while they wait for people to actually take advantage of their capabilities, new gaming consoles are generally not so cut and dry. While fans of either console next month spend time bickering about launch lineup, features, price point, and 1080p versus 720p... I am here to tell you why you should be putting off your "next-gen" console purchases until a later date."
