    Default How excited are you about the next generation of gaming consoles?

    Is it me, or does it seem like their isn't nearly as much hype about Playstation 4 and the new Xbox as their was in previous generations?

    There was some early word about the "online exclusivity" for the XBox 720, but nothing confirmed from Microsoft last I knew. Frankly, if -any- of the rumors about the 720 true, I'm, well, done with Microsoft's console gaming.

    There was a barebones PS4 announcement, and while I haven't really looked into the details, it seemed to be pretty much what was expected. And nothing "new" other than an improved system hasn't lead to any major excitement just yet.

    Well, we've reached a point where MORE POWER doesn't really mean anything, where we have to install a billion gigs to a hard drive just to get anything to play, and games cost so much to make that nobody's really making a profit except EA.

    So you could say I'm pants wettingly terrified about the future.

    Not excited, i think we've almost tapped graphics out without getting into reality, control gimmicks are gimmicks, wii didn't exactly change the way we play games.
    My pc can still run any game on max settings for a few years, im happy with that.

    I'm almost done with console games. I think they need to die now. We don't need them anymore.

    I'm actually more excited for the Ouya for one main reason, Emulators! I'm loading that sucker full of roms once it comes out.

    I am pretty excited, but I don't plan on getting a next-gen console at launch. I'll wait and make sure there aren't horrendous hardware issues with the initial batch.

    Could do that if I had a wii :( The one I used was my brothers and he moved out of the house and I don't need one since I wasted my money on the wii u. But, I do use a flash cart on my DS lite. Best use for that handheld!

    I'm pretty meh about newer consoles and games, but the hardware for the PS4 is kinda cool. There's a second processor just for handling downloads and streaming so online activity won't slow your game down.

    Ha, me too! My hope is that they'll be able to bring Elder Scrolls: Online to the next gen consoles :D I know it won't happen, but it's my current pipe dream.
