    We watch Xfinity, HBO Go, YouTube, Netflix, stream our bootleg movies on our 360, we hardly play games on it. The only thing to get my interest would be games for the next-gen. Don't see it happening

    pffft.... i am ready for the next gen to Nintendo! they need to get back on the ball and i am looking forward to the new graphics. PS3 and the 360 i say still has a few years in them, especially the PS3... i like the new hand-healds, i have been whining about those for years.the ps-vita was the best $300 ive spent this year and the 3ds has amazing 3d, i just dont like how it varies per game... the wii u is going to be so awesome!!!! i have already set aside 300 for that and it wont bother me if i have to go more... i have to say, i want the next gen for Nintendo but not for everything else, and i know tons of people who would agree.

    Here's another good reason: The Last Guardian is still not out. And we don't want it to be one of the last big games on PS3 so it gets bad sales, now would we?

    Just look at quantic dream running stunning graphics on a ps3, thats proof that we dont need another for a while, not to mention that the next gen may be the last, the next gen will have lifelike graphics and will only inprove in time. I cant see how they can inprove on eventual perfection.

    HD Zelda, only one reason needed.

    I think vadorsoul has the most fair point. Games are ridiculously expensive to make, and a new gen would only raise costs (not to mention the time it takes to get used to the technology. [see point 7]) and potentially hurt devs should a game fail. This may cause publishers to play it safe, and thus creativity dissapears. And I doubt the large public would jump on a new gen, to be honest. Most households are comfortable with the way their console has become an entertainment hub. It would take a lot to convince people that spending 599$ (or whatever) on a new console is worth it. I doubt improved graphics are enough.

    I'd happily wait a couple of years for next gen, the games that are coming out now are just too good and I really don't want it to have to go back to how it was like at the start of the generation, I got a ps3 a year after it launched and there wasn't much to play for at least another year after that. Secondly I just feel that the current trend in gaming is to add an unwanted gimmick and hope that turns out well, we've seen some good uses with the wiimote and dual screen on the ds and the occasional good use of sixaxis or kinect but they're the exceptions. We've already seen the wii-u is going down the same path and we'll have to wait and see if that turns out well, I don't think it will if developers are only using it for stuff like inventory management or a handheld HUD like a lot of journalists are suggesting but only time will tell whether my fear of gimmicks is warranted or not.

    It seems that every whenever developers finally manage to get the most out of the current range of consoles, they are ready to move on to the next generation. I'd rather get a few more years of truly brilliant games than a new console with a shaky start. Personally I'm pretty happy with the way things are right now. Especially with stuff like Bioshock Infinite, Dishonored, Last of Us, Last Guardian and the Kara film showing what this gen is still capable of.

    I think it really IS time for next gen. I'm sick of characters walking through trees and plants, I'm sick of unrealistic physics and unbreakable objects, I want to have all that in my games. Other than that, yes, the pictures are quite pretty. I don't demand photo-realism, even though it'd be nice, but I'd really want a much better physics in game and world building behind my screen, not details growing on my screen as I move towards it.

    #1: We're too fucking poor to afford yet another lump sum drop at launch and 70 dollar games. I think it'd be worth getting new consoles out and about so that developers can make them look just as good as now, but lock the frame rate to 60 for every game. I don't think new consoles need to be bigger, better, and more bad-ass, they just need to work better and more efficiently for me to be content. Rather than adding a billion more polys to your boob model, how about cleaning up those 3 shippable bugs?
  • CH3BURASHKA - May 31, 2012 11:01 p.m.

    PS Totally fucking psyched we can swear again.
  • DualWieldingIsNotFeasible - May 31, 2012 10:03 p.m.

    I agree with most of this. Like so many of the other commenters, I have a massive backlog to work through on my 360, plus I'm getting back into PC games, plus I'm revisiting classics that I missed on the PS2. And with plenty of awesome games coming out this year, plus a few that have been delayed until NEXT year, I can stand to wait until 2013 (or maybe even 2014) for a new console.
  • garnsr - May 31, 2012 8:03 p.m.

    It seems like all the third sequels that came out in the last year, and didn't thrill everyone as much as the second ones, were the reason that people stopped thinking that current gen could still thrive for a few more years, and started everyone saying that we have to move on as soon as possible. We still haven't seen anyone use the PS3 as well as Insomniac or Naughty Dog, they've been content to let the 360 hamper PS3 development too. I don't see anyone taking advantage of any of the Wii U's benefits when they didn't do it for PS3.
  • yonderTheGreat - May 31, 2012 9:44 p.m.

    Except anything from Valve. They don't know how to count past 2.
  • vadorsoul - May 31, 2012 7:16 p.m.

    Hows this for a reason. It already costs an obscene amount make games. Another generation of concoles will dramatically rais the costs of developement. Better graphics would call for more manpower, resources, and time to make AAA games. The more money it takes to develop, the less risks you can take. The next generation will bring more mass market apeal and less creativity and innovation.
  • KnowYourPokemon - May 31, 2012 6:41 p.m.

    Sorry, but I have to disagree completely that we're not ready for next gen. My main reason is that the hardware is showing it's age. That's just a simple fact. Too many game on consoles right now can't even reach 60 fps, plenty are capped at 30 which for me just comes off as rugged and clunky to my eyes.
  • Tjwoods18 - May 31, 2012 6:20 p.m.

    Nevertheless, Ps3 gamers can rest assure that the current gen system will follow the same as the ps3. Sony would ultimatly be crazy to drop its support right of the bat. Prime example: the continuous sale of the PsP vs. the Vita. The will not stop development as long as people are still buying their products.
  • robotdickens - May 31, 2012 6:13 p.m.

    No reason whatsoever. The 360 and PS3 will be king because of constant updates so we have no reason to shell out 600 bucks for a new brick. With the constant updates, we can have an almost new console about once every year. Don't believe me? Look at the most drastic 3 360 updates. I barely remember the 'file folder' one.
  • Tjwoods18 - May 31, 2012 6:03 p.m.

    I don't plan on buying the ps4 for atleast the first two years of the next generation. The ps2 stayed alive basically the first two years of the ps3 (till 2009, I believe) So who is to say that the same thing will not happen again. Don't get me wrong, I love sony and all but I will be dammned if I will shell out $600 for another game system ever again.
