I'm not that pumped for the next generation...

I just don't feel excited for the Wii U/Xbox 720/PS4 generation. I mean when the N64 arrived I was excited, when the GameCube arrived I was excited, when the Wii arrived I was excited, but so far I'm just not feeing any of the next big 3 consoles.

Maybe I'm being a little too skeptical since the next generation has hardly started but I don't feel a desire for any of the next consoles. But perhaps time will change my mind. Until then, I think the only next gen system I'll be needing is my PS Vita. Well, and I do want to get a 3DS. But in terms of home consoles...I'm not sure. Anyone else feel this way?

You were excited when the N64 arrived? When you were 2 years old? Well well well well well well.

Right now there isn't too many exciting games coming out apart from a few on the Wii U so that may be the reason.

Personally I think the biggest reason I'm not too hot on the next gen is because most developers mentalities towards next gen consoles don't really go anywhere beyond "POWER! POWER!" "I NEED MORE POWER! MUCH MORE!" "ENERGY LEVELS ARE STILL TOO LOW! YOUR MACHINE DOES NOT OFFER ENOUGH POWER!"
nicer graphics

I suppose I meant when I first heard of the Nintendo 64.

But nothing on the next consoles is attracting me...is gaming just going in a bad direction from here on?

The gaming industry seems to shun advancements in gameplay, controllers, etc.
Companies are pressured into pumping out the same thing over and over, not just in video games, but consoles as well. It's evident that nobody seems to want to move past the traditional controller, so it looks like we're just going to have more and more 'powerful' systems each gen, rather than revolutionary new ways to play games.


The PS4 just seems like a firmware update with some neat software features, and nothing that warranted a new console. By being the runt of the litter last gen, Nintendo knew that it had to step up in terms of hardware capabilities, so they ramped up the graphics and specs, but still tried to push the limits and made something dinstinctly 'next-gen' (or at least, for them) with it's controller.

In my honest opinion we're approaching the second Gaming industry crash at full speed. I have enjoyed my Wii U, but I don't plan to get a PS4 or a 720. Both companies have failed to impress me over the last few years.

But 3Ds is where it's at, man. For God's sake, everyone go get a ****ing 3DS.

I think the publishers have a part in this as well. With bigger triple-A games, they are playing it safe and trying to appeal to a specific demographic to make a large return. When they innovate, they innovate for the wrong reason. It's showing that the companies are believing in this as well. There are no leaps this generation, just a few steps but I am kinda looking forward to the PS4 because I want to see what they are going to do with it.

I was excited for the Wii U. Still love it, just wish they'd hurry with the game releases. I think it shows a lot of promise. As of now, nothing I've seen about the PS4 interests me. I just got my PS3 last year, so I'm in no rush to upgrade. Not sure about the new Xbox since nothing's been shown about it yet, but will probably get it eventually because of Halo. When they finally show it, it may wow us all. Or it'll be terrible. Who knows. lol

No kidding. When you can't make a profit after 3-5million sales, you need to seriously rethink your business strategies or you'll go down the shitter with the rest of the industry

I'm going to say yes to this.
Game devs these days don't know what gaming is anymore. With all the cutting edge consoles, new graphics capable of cinematics and flashy shit, video games seem to be about telling a story that could easily be a movie, or animation of some sort. The thing that game devs today fail to see is that video games are not about that shit, it's supposed to be a ****ing game. It's supposed to give YOU the player the emotions felt on the screen, not some avatar you are controlling!

Most games before this gen knew how to reach out to the player, and that's partially because they didn't have the hardware to jerk out this flashy bullshit. Nowadays you Hit square, half circle, dodge, and BOOM, some character you are controlling on a screen survived the fight. Where's the gratification as a player?
And I mean, do we really need Ellen Page in every god damn blockbuster game these days? I mean, she's great and all, but just make a damn movie with her in it!

The general gaming market is just oversaturated with lifeless games that don't have any means to connect to the player, but the general indie scene is just pretentious in this respect. Like, ok, Super Meat Boy, looks fantastic, but LIMBO? Come on. Lifeless in every respect. Journey? That's cool. How long before you forget about it? But oh, it's ~artistique~ so it's alright if we charge you $15 for four hours of gameplay, right!!!

The sweet smell of green has just gone to long term developers heads. The absolute worst case scenario being Capcom. You want to know why the painfully named "Devil May Cry", and "Resident Evil" games didn't sell? What's that? Outsourcing? No. It's because you completely ****ed over the fan base of all of your franchises, for nothing more but a cheap buck.

I was actually just talking to my friend about this. He completely agrees. Gaming has become less and less about the experience, and more and more about what they can knock off in order to sell more products. By completely selling out the integrity of their franchises, they get what they want.

As for actual consoles, I actually can't believe Microsoft is even considering pushing an exclusively online console as their flagship. Not only will the games be worthless when the servers ultimately get pulled, but so will the console. You'll never be able to play those games again.
The PS4 doesn't interest me as is, either. I'll only get a Wii U once I see the Wind Waker and Smash Bros. U on store shelves.
The rest of this gen, really does sound like balls to me so far. I'm probably going to get flamed big time for this.
