    "...more and more titles are coming on multiple disks." I've never seen a single one; I'm a Ps3 gamer.

    Sony and Microsoft are probably waiting for this depression of jobs in the U.S and Europe to get a little fixed before they send out the new consoles.

    I don't know... I just don't feel I have the cash for a new generation console, and I have plenty of already released games I want to play on this generation, so if the next generation launches in the next year or so I'll probably have to do what I did for this generation and buy a second hand console a couple of years after it's released.

    You know, I was on the "not ready" side. But then I read this and it's sort of made me a bit more OK with it. Mostly because of the point about the new IPs but I do love that feeling of excitement when you first open the box for that shiny new console. But honestly if my PC wasn't so slow and crappy I'd totally be a PC gamer.

    I'm a simple man. So I'm cool so long as the next generation of Xbox is not called Xbox 720, because that is the stupidest name ever. That is all

    PC gaming has always been a whole different monster and a lot of these things don't really apply, but I have to say that, personally, much of the same is true for me and my PS3. I've never had any technical difficulties, nor have I known any PS3 owners with severe technical difficulties. As has been stated in numerous comments already, Sony continues to churn out new IPs and continually pushes the console's boundaries on ONE DISC with LARGER HD SPACE to begin with. Plus, I'm still way behind on the games I want to play on this gen. I'm still working through Half-Life 2 for that matter...

    @avant Geek is right on this man, the ferrari is far superior on any type of paved surface, there really is no point of comparrison here. Maybe off road sure, but then we might as well compare an airplane to a boat and why the hell would we do that? I myself do not own a ferrari, but I would buy one for the handling because they have godly handling. anyways were we talking about games?

    "Remember when you first had to go get a second Xbox controller for multiplayer Halo? Or when the first “must-buy” of the generation released and you bought it on launch night?" Um, no. Cuz I was smart and bought a bundle with multiple controllers. Also, I'm smart and don't wait in line on laught night. I have it delivered to my house the morning of release date. I seriously don't understand people who go to stores on launch night except for possibly if they go with their friends and hang out, in which case it's a social event. But I'd rather sleep and have it delivered to my house the AM of launch day, cuz I'm awesome AND lazy like that.

    I am ready for some new heros in gaming to. Sure Desmond and Shepard are great, but I want to try to save the world as someone new. Here's hoping that our new heros of gaming are just on the horizon.
  • TheVoid - June 1, 2012 10:30 p.m.

    Okay, let me get this straight: "7 reasons we're not ready for the next-generation to start" yesterday, today "7 reasons we're totally ready for the next-generation to start". This might have been a lot more compelling if both articles weren't written by the SAME FUCKING AUTHOR. Sorry Coop (can I call you Coop?) but this strikes me as something far more contrived than passionate, and GR used to be a lot more passionate. A two-person point/counterpoint approach would have been a lot more engaging. As it stands it feels more like a wind-up than anything.
  • Hobogonigal - June 2, 2012 6:54 a.m.

    Its really not that bad is it? I thought they were quite good but you are entitled to your own opinion...
  • GR HollanderCooper - June 2, 2012 3 p.m.

    The points don't contradict each other, though. There are seven reasons I'm excited, and seven reasons I have reservations.
  • TheVoid - June 2, 2012 11:34 p.m.

    True, but the points not contradicting each other wasn't really my point (although that definitely would have been flat-out shitty, so thanks for that much at least). As it stands it just doesn't seem like you are weighing in either way. Not that you necessarily need to, but per my earlier point about GR of old being a bit more passionate, this seems more akin to "sparking a debate" rather than "lighting a fuse", which I feel I'm seeing a lot less of these days, which is disappointing. I understand you can't make everyone happy all of the time and all that but it just seems as though GR has gotten, well, soft. What I loved most about this site was how the writing staff would completely and unapologetically throw their stakes into the ground and fiercely argue/defend their stances. Often I disagreed but I ultimately respected the whole "well this is how I feel about this, you can take it or leave it", which is what always had me coming back. This isn't the first instance of this perceived change but I feel it personifies what could be the problem easily enough - articles becoming more about "getting the GR community talking via soft prods" versus "I just took the hammer to this and you just watched me do it. Say what you want". It's odd because it's a selling point that I probably didn't even realize was there until now. Of course, with such wide changes in staff over the past year it's understandable that GR's overall "personality" was bound to change as well, I guess it just feels like it's happier kicking the ball into the fray from a distance rather than really taking aim and pulling the trigger on issues we can all relate to, avid gamers that we are. Ultimately this "7 points A, 7 points B" approach seemed intended to stir the pot and get people talking, which is fine. I guess I just liked it better when the staff would land hard on things and get people FIRED UP. I mentioned passion earlier and stand by it but I think another word to describe it would be conviction, or rather these articles' intentional lack thereof. Of course, just my opinion, and thanks for replying (and hearing me out again if you are reading this). And I'm still a fan, albeit one who feels like it's now Van Hagar GR instead of DLR VH GR. That said, if possible I'd love to see GR bring back more of the old crowd spitting, for lack of a better term. And trust in the GR community to always be in a ready state of commentary - build it and we will come, no need to ask nicely.

    ^ Truth.

    Every time I read an article about the next generation of consoles, one point that the journalists always point out is the ever improving graphical capabilities of the next-gen consoles. I may be wrong on this but what always seems to be a problem with the next-gen consoles is that they will probably require new, expensive televisions just to play. With that price tag of $599 mentioned in yesterday's article, I'm not sure many people are going to be able to afford shelling out another couple hundred for a new TV to run it on. Would it be totally implausible to also assume that the next-gen consoles will also use/require a higher than HD quality picture format incompatible with most gamer's curent flat sreens also?
  • EwoksTasteLikeChicken - June 1, 2012 5:33 p.m.

    In the latest issue of OXM, there is an article about how the next console generation could very likely see fewer IPs and more and more sequels. I just thought it was kinda interesting, went against what you guys said...
  • Tjwoods18 - June 1, 2012 8:06 p.m.

    Five more call of duty's will appear on ps4/720 -_-
  • DDDAze - June 1, 2012 11:39 p.m.

    Pfft, in like the first 2 years of release of the consoles
