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?
