    I don't mind the gradual improvement of next gen software

    The first year will be transition titles which basically just have their FPS upped compared to their current gen titles

    Then over time, due to a combination of more people moving to the next gen consoles, and developers better grasping the hardware, you start to really see what the machines are capable of.

    I don't have much anticipation for the next gen consoles, the current HD generation brought us nothing but sharper graphics and screentear, we're still stuck playing 8v8 online shooters and racers after over 10 years of proper console gaming and I can't see that changing much in the next gen due to the way online console gaming works. We'll never see 32 v 32 players like PC gamers have had for years.

    If rumours are true about Sony removing the DualShock tech in favour of sensors and touch screens they can piss off, DualShock is one of the few things Sony got right in console gaming.

    Augmented reality could play a big part.

    I'm more interested in Steambox, playing cheap superior PC and indie games on my TV with a controller, no configuration files, no messing around, if anyone can make it work it's Valve, maybe the PS4 and Xbox3 will have Steambox functionality?

    If Sony include the Dualshock ill not bother, worst controller ever.

    When we talk about Dualshock, are we talking about the controller shape (which is pretty much the same as the old Analog controller) or the doubled up vibration pack (a system shared by the 360 and original xbox, but was new in the PS1 over the single vibrator in the N64 and DC)?

    Personally I'm not a big fan of the analog triggers, or the convex L2/R2 of the dualshock design, but other than the N64 and DC rumble pack implementation being a bit unbalanced towards the back, I couldn't give a fuck how many actual vibration wotsits it's got. The PS pad's always had a pretty damn good d-pad too, for what that's worth these days.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    I hate the triggers, hate the analogues, like the dpad, like the face buttons, like the shoulder buttons... meh about everything else.

    Don't know if I'm alone but I don't care much for the next generation yet.

    In past couple months I've been mostly playing halo 4, borderlands 2 and max Payne 3 and when each was completed I never once thought my old Xbox needs replacing rather I thought 'wow they looked amazing'.

    Especially max Payne 3, just astonishing graphics considering how old the hardware is.

    I think the only area where consoles need improving is for me in strategy games like the total war series where the 7 year old power just can not run these games.

    I do hope the announcement of the new Xbox is as cool as this one was:

    Where's that PS3 launch thing with the retardo kid saying "It'll be the best because. Just because. It'll be the best! Because I don't know."

    try the pc version of max payne 3 in 1080p on a big tv with a 360 joypad.

    Also, Skyrim in 1080p is beautiful

    I hope Sony's reveal on the 20th is better than this:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OtZ-rK349aY

    When I say "better than" I mean, has more truth to it than. I just spent 5 mins skipping through that conference and pretty much nothing what was said actually transpired and all the tech demo's look way way better than any software that ever came out.

    "The PS3 is so powerful that every one of these leaves can have its own audio channel" (tech demo of millions of leaves blowing in the wind)

    I love this PS3 launch failure; no one actually wanted one, they were just there to put it straight on ebay.

    Yeah, it was right after the Wii launch + ebay madness

    The resulting 'oh god I have 5 PS3s and no-one wants to buy them' was hilarious

    Oh shit yeah I remember that! I remember people trying to hawk them on here too. There was no shortage of PS3s at launch, that's for sure.

    Fair play, no-one does PR bullshit quite as well as Sony.

    Well, we pretty much got real time Ghibli which is a decent alternative.

    Funny how after 7 years not one game ever came out with any fluid dynamics whatsoever on the PS3.

    MGS4 was like real life wax people walking around real life cardboard environments. PS3 delivered.
