I'll wait for a few years to buy either next gen system. Don't be a guinea pig for a billion dollar developer by paying top dollar for half-finished shit.

I think I'm done with keeping up with popular console games to be honest, I'll get GTA 5 as it'll probably be a big deal but I think I'll stick to indie PC games and I'll keep up to date on Nintendo Consoles but personally I think I'm done.

Especially as the new xbox controller looks like the old one.

People dont like change in controllers. Playstation tried and was met with a ton of backlash and went back to their original

This looks pretty interesting. The new cod game caught my attention. Not a lot of gaming previews though. A lot of focus on tv.

I thought the same, it looks like its focusing more on being a media center than an actual console.

Rumor is the XboxOne won't be backwards compatible.

Am I reading this right, you can't borrow, lend or buy second hand games with the new machine?

Agreed. It's not like our hands are constantly evolving. I think Xbox and PS have it down pretty well. Only addition I could think of if something with voice commands, like they did with the Kinect for Mass Effect 3.

If that's the case, I'll never own one, based just on economic principles. It would not only stick us with games we may not want, but it would destroy an entire industry of game stores, ebay commerce, etc. You can't stab a sister industry in the back like that.

I've just read some more about it and apparently the game downloads to the machine and is registered to the gamer i.d. so if you have say two kids in the one house who use different gamer i.d's you'd have to pay a "small unlocking fee" on top of the price you just paid for the game for both kids to use it. Same again if they want to lend it to a friend.

Apparently Sony's share price's jumped by 8% shortly after the announcements and microsoft's share prices took a 1% decline.

it was expected that the new Xbox was going to have Microsoft nickle and dime you like they do already. Hopefully they hear what fans have to say and change some things. I really doubt these new controllers live. PS3 was supposed to have new controllers and that didn't happen after negative reactions.

My guess is PS4 wins the war unless it starts with a ridiculous price. I have also read that if either system starts more than $300 that the state of console gaming could be put in serious jeopardy.

I heard a rumor that PS4 will also have the same feature as Xbox considering new games. So pick your poison

PS4 price tag was supposedly leaked at $400
