"It goes without saying that consoles get better over time. If we compare PS3 launch game Resistance: Fall of Man to, say, The Last of Us, the benefits of waiting to pick up a new console are obvious. But the PS3 launched when the PS2 was on its last legs anyway, and it wasn’t difficult for the Xbox 360 to capitalise on where the Xbox fell short. Now though, there just isn’t much to differentiate the current and new generation of consoles. These next-gen experiences just aren’t enough of an improvement over the consoles we already own, and if you’re buying a new machine with the promise that “things will get better”, should you be buying them at all?"
