    As prices settled compared to PS2/XBOX era they are about a fiver more for the current gen after the initial rip off if you bought online I would say.

    So upcoming gen will settle at 40 after trying 45-50 at the start.

    Lol "gens"

    Would gaming even notice if neither mass market media boxes made it off the production line?

    No, but I'd miss the noise surrounding it.

    Yeah, because all console tech flows from the PC and they'd have nothing to strive for or look shit against.

    Er. Cell? Wiimote? Kinect? N64 cartridges?

    I know what you mean and it's mostly true, just with an extra sprinkling of db
    vim and unnecessary aggression. ;-)

    Quite happy that they're aping the PC so much, though with the resolution for this gen topping out at 1080P it'll be interesting what the PC versions of multi platform titles will add.

    One area I do think non PS3 owners miss is the success of PS+ not just as a way of renting access to games but the way some publishers have figured out that they can sell some extra DLC. It has made the PS3 a lot more valuable for me, especially given my hatred of pissing about with discs.

    Reality is that PS4 games will probably look a little shinier... But there'll probably be the odd MS exclusive that benefits from the extra RAM... Other than that it'll be the general ecosystem that encourages people to buy one console over the other.

    I got a 360 near launch and loved it however with each passing year Microsoft turn it more into a massive market media device. The ps3 on the other hand (bought 2011) has all the same features but is a more a game machine.

    Due to the Microsoft direction, I will not be buying the next xbox, I have a PC for that. I might consider the ps4 if it has interesting games and features as I want consoles for the games not the media fluff.

    Gun, Burnout, King Kong, etc.

    There are a couple of 360 games i wouldnt mind playing on a more powerful console though : Far Cry 3 being the best example, due to the fact that i can sometimes hear the 360 squealing in pain trying to run it.

    I just hope that there arent any FIFA : Road to the World Cup type games - basically a "this is a very short-sighted look at what games could be like this gen" release. Dont need that.

    I always view the whole "man, they added TOO MANY THINGS" argument with some bemusement.

    Why is it 'bad' that Microsoft added a bunch of media features to the 360? You don't have to use them. It still plays games, just like it always did. The PS3's better because it does fewer things? Really? Besides which... doesn't the PS3 do all those things too?

    I agree 100%. I doubt any of these things they're adding will mean less games.

    Sony already made a console that nobody could afford once, they're not likely to do it again.

    Hang on, no wait. It's Sony!

    I'll buy a 720 if it has games that I want and are not available on PC, simple as that.

    Yeah but on 360 all they did was up the resolution, they left the textures as they were so they look pyar manky.

    I suspect I'll wait a couple of years and stick with the PC until then. By then I'll have a good idea what has the best exclusives and if theres not much in it then I'll get whoever offers the best value service. Unless things change that would likely be PS4 as PS+ offers me more then Live.
  • Deleted user 22 January 2013 09:51:47
    I have to say that as an Xbox owner I see the PS+ service with jealous eyes.

    I'll be looking at the PS4 very closely this time round. I hope they finally change the friggin' pad though, that's always been the sticking point for me.

    To be honest though, unless 343 fuck up Halo next gen I'll probably be getting an Xbox.

    What do you think HDMI in is for LB?

    Because they'll be using it for connecting to cable TV receivers and the like.

    Am i the only one who actually prefers the DS3 to the xbox pad? I agree it could do with a refresh after nigh on 3 generations but i still find it comfortable.
