    @Boab Hardly true of the DS or 3DS.

    I wasn't being serious.

    People keep talking about Kinect2 as a reason not to buy the next xbox, but surely it depends on the price and games. Especially if (as rumoured) Orbis comes with an updated Eyetoy/camera included too.
    Depends on the use of it and the quality of the revised hardware. My gripe with Kinect is that it doesn't work. I was playing NFS:MW and FIFA with the volume up, I wasn't saying a word, but it would hear the commentary or police chat coming through the speaker and decide that I'd said "throw everyone forward, leave big holes at the back" or "change the camera angle to one I can't play with". With FIFA I could turn off Kinect functionality but couldn't find anywhere in NFS to disable it. Not even using it and it still managed to break the game, so I had to unplug it. If the rumours are true that Durango won't even load without a Kinect plugged in then I can only assume that games are going to come with mandatory broken mind-of-their-own voice controls.

    I'm less concerned about the Sony one as I can't see them shoehorning it in everywhere (the touch stuff on Vita for games that don't strictly need it is almost always optional), and the fact that Move works exactly like it's supposed to do.

    I can't wait for up-rezzed ports of 360 and PS3 games for 10 more. New generations rule!

    @Zomoniac Of course, but we should wait to see what that is before making it into a major issue :)

    Everytime you hear 1080p you have to take a shot

    Who's getting a PS4 then?
    I will get one of the new consoles this November/December unless there are no really good launch games, or you have to to camp out to get one.

    But I'll only have one for the next couple of years since I only have one free slot in my entertainment center and one free HDMI port on my TV. And because I think there will still be 360 and PS3 games I want to play, and I don't expect either new console to have proper BC.

    Not really arsed about backward compatibility tbh. If the PS4 is more powerful i'll go with that.

    I'm a bit of a graphics whore at the end of the day.

    I'll definitely be picking up a PS4 at launch, said I wouldn't and my resolve has practically gone already. No way I would be able to see and hear about it everywhere and ignore it.

    Simple decision for me, a few Naughty Dog exclusives alone are worth the price of admission, games like Ico/SotC, Ni No Kuni, GoW, Heavy Rain, Journey etc all appeal to me then the current MS exclusives so a no brainer.

    Sony need to get GT 6 out for Christmas 2014. It's still a monster sales-wise, particularly in Europe.

    Surely based on their past work schedule, Gran Turismo 6 is at least 4 years away.

    Yeah, the game needs work. Maybe it'll be patched before the conference.

    Had to get rid of my PS3 and I'm gutted about all the new games I'm currently missing so I hope there is BC and I hope I don't have to wait too long for one. I feel there is absolutely no point in buying a standalone BR player either so that is another thing I'm keen to have back with which ever is first out.

    So, just so we're all on the same page here, are spoilers permitted in this thread?

    Is anyone really that excited about next-gen? I don't see them being more than souped-up versions of current gen. Nothing like the jump from 16-bit to 32-bit.

    No, I think we already pretty much know what we're in for, with the PC versions of multi platform games.

    Certainly image quality isn't that much of a leap once you get to 1080p imo.

    That studio should be sorted out or have funds serverly curbed. I honestly wouldn't give them any more and let them go 3rd party if they still intend on acting the way they do. Might as well burn your money.

    Turn 10 released Forza 2,3 and 4 in one generation. Polyphony have managed to squeeze out one game that was so lacking on launch (no online matchmaking?!) they've been patching it for two years since. A high percentage of the car models in GT4 were even ported over from GT3. Not to mention the fact that reviews wise it has fared worse than its competitor.

    One big advantage of having a new release every 2 to 3 years is the ability to iterate and improve and I would love to see the GT franchise if Poly were encouraged to take this approach. Maybe we'd get a useful "free look" on the right stick....or interiors for every car...or new tracks...or a well designed UI / menu system...or a steady 60fps....
