    EG has already run an article on what we can expect and it seems the new Xbox and Playstation are not far away.

    Obviously, we already know what Nintendo is doing next, but Microsoft and Sony are keeping their cards close to their chest. E3 2012 is 9 months away now and the rumours have been flowing already.

    Apparently the next Xbox will be announced at E3 2012.

    Also, Sony have announced that they are working on the Playstation 4.


    The 360 in particular does seem to be lagging a bit IMO. Mass Effect 2, Dead Space 2, LA Noire, Forza 3 and now Rage have all required multiple disks which implies that developers are struggling with the age of the console now. As long as Microsoft carry over Gamerscore and XBLA games to the next xbox, il be happy!. Built-in Kinect would [u]not[/u] be appreciated though.

    The Wii U doesnt look brilliant in my opinion. Its great for Nintendo that it will be able to run current gen games like COD and Arkham City, but IF Microsoft and Sony do announce new consoles at E3, the Wii U will suddenly feel obsolete.

    We all know about the "10 year plan" that Sony have with the PS3. I believe its currently on year 5 and, judging by the fact that their still releasing new games for the PS2, its fair to say that the 10 year plan will hold up. However, i doubt they will want Microsoft to get another head-start like this generation, so it will interesting to see how they react.

    When do you want the next gen of consoles and what features would you like to see?

    I know this has been done before, but speculation and rumours seem to be turning into actual developments at the moment. The next gen could literally be one year away......

    Also, I don't give a fuck about games coming on multiple disks. I played Monkey Island 2 on the Amiga!

    I would like to see a penis-shaped console, that's soft and spongy like a swiss-roll, and you can cut it into slices and the games come oozing out of the tip...

    Read that as beard maker, now Vader with a ming style beard could be cool.

    It would be called the "CONDOR" It would come in one colour. Gold.

    It would take square discs and play betamax tapes.

    There would be a joystick rather than a joypad and it would have a 500 Gig hard drive and 4000 gigawatt processor.

    You would have to be 21 to buy one.

    It would be illegal to sell it to females.

    When you started it up it would scream like a swooping Condor.

    When it ran the noise it makes would be similair to a petrol lawn mower.

    It would run on diesel not electricity.

    It would be fucking awesome.

    In case anyone doubts the extent of Ultrasoundwave's intellect, here's a quick reminder of his last thread on this topic:

    I don't think some EGers realise how lucky they are that a world-class games developer and 3D expert like you takes the time to post here.

    Below is a quote from Crytek :

    "I think when we put Crysis 2 out we will show a level that is, multiplatform-wise, maxing out, but we will look into with Microsoft how Kingdoms can push the Xbox 360 110 percent, to its limits.

    When you're spending a multimillion budget only on the Xbox 360, that team will be able to crank out the last two or three percent left in the console. But I think that two or three percent will make the difference potentially between day and night that you cannot afford if you go multiplatform."

    Now if you'll excuse me, i've got some world-class game developing, in 3D, to do.

    Whatever happened to Gran Turismo 5, huh? I thought we wouldn't need a new console, ever again. That videogames would surpass real life, in the image quality stakes.

    My purchase of the Amiga 590 hard drive was one of the greatest upgrades in gaming history for me.

    I'm happy with my Current Gen consoles - except the Wii. Pish.

    I've no desire to spend another 400 on a games console at the moment

    With Rare, Turn 10 and Lionhead already working on next gen stuff I'd say a new Xbox reveal next year would pretty much be a certainty

    Yeah, swapping three discs? Fucking luxury! In my time we had multiple discs just to get the OS running!

    Heh Alan Wake 2 is rumoured for the next gen as well acording to CVG. When people said see you in 2017 Alan I thought they were joking but clearly not lol.
