This is a thread discussing things about next gen consoles. Will you buy one? What do you want from the PS4/Wiii/Xbox 720? What kind of games do you think will be invented for them?
I personally hope there will be virtual reality, put on goggles and you play as the character, kind of thing. Call of duty in 3d? Sweet. Although I will either be too old/dead by the time they invent anything that cool, I still think they will be pretty awesome. What do you think?
Will you buy one?
What do you want to see?
I'm not great at starting topics, but I think you get it :grin:

The next gen are things like xbox natal. I know that Fable 3 will be on xbox natal. As for 3D, that is already out as we speak.

yeah.. the only other game ill be really waiting for to come out this gen is fable 3. other than that no other game (xbox or ps3 or wii) that interests me

i'll get the new xbox depending on:

my friends getting it
no RRoD 2.0
no more online fee (though i expect sony to follow in MS's footsteps with premium membership)
more streamlined online experience
mass effect staying exclusive
fable staying exclusive
sony keeping the dual shock design (it was good when i had 10 yr old hands.. but come on)

oh and [bleep] nintendo, why anyone between 18 and 65 would ever get the wii is beyond me.

Oh god, I just shudder thinking about another Console War in the near future...

The only particular new thing I see would be 3D. But that's not even that great. Natal seems too advance to be cheaply mass-produced for next-gen.

Expect expensive consoles and games too. $75 games ftw.

Consoles are already as good as they can ever be - or at least should be. Games already look better than real life, and I really don't want 3D in my gaming. It doesn't really feel right (although I haven't seen Avatar yet, so maybe my opinions will change).

PlayStation can update controller if necessary without a new system.
X-Box could become more reliable / better looking with more ease.
Wii is different. I don't think games would EVER get made if its graphics were cutting-edge. So it's one or the other. And motion can be fun!! :twss:

Graphically I think it's fine, though I don't really like most artists take on "realistic graphics", as in, gray and brown.

Anyway, I just want game consoles that can handle more. I've always wanted to see a WWII game where every aspect of the war is played. People would be able to play as pilots, gunners, foot soldiers, officers would command in a grand-strategy style, everything happens just as in RL (except modified to be more fun, obviously), just a perfect WWII SIM. The possibilities for that tech are endless, but we're probably several generation away from that.

"Friendly" competition they say...besides I prefer to do some sort of physical activity with a girl rather than just sit there. :razz:

I have to agree with you; gamer technology is roughly the same as it ever will be. The only difference will be the concepts of games' plots and gameplay. As for 3D, it's been in and out of fads since the 1950s and it hasn't stablized yet. Nor is it regardless of what the movie, TV, and now game companies think.

That's a big problem I have with current games. All the 1337 graphics and shix but no large, complex map or long storyline or more in-depth. I remember when it took days or maybe weeks to play a game enjoyably. Even at my slow but fun pace I finish games within two or three days. Short storylines ftl.

Maybe I like Nintendo's games? We can't all have the same tastes. Nintendo know's how to make great titles. It just needs the third party support.

It'd be nice if Nintendo made a console that can compete with Sony And Microsoft's offerings.

I agree with Sam. Though I think Nintendo own Sony in the handheld department. GAMEBOY FTW.

I think I would wait. There was a BIG step up from say the PS2 to the Xbox 360/PS3, ok there might be 3D or something but its not going to be as big a jump.

Probably won't buy a Nintendo console, because it will probably just be another console aimed at 10 year olds and the elderly, because, sadly, thats what sells.

I definately wouldn't buy a Microsoft console if they pulled the same kind of [cabbage] they did with the Xbox launch. Or a Sony console if its ridiculously overpriced again.

Come to think of it both proper consoles [bleep]ed up at launch pretty badly.

I wouldn't count Nintendo out yet. What if they made a good console? Can you say Pokemon?

Pokemon = Fail. They were fun at first, but they never bring anything new to the table besides a few new Pokemon each time, which could easily be done more frequently and more profitably with frequent cheap DLC.

This goes out to Nintendo for their franchises, and EA for their sports games: STOP REPACKAGING THE SAME GAMES EVERY YEAR!!!!!!!

You are right about the pokemon, but if you think the new metroid, zelda or mario will be just worth of dlc, you are either moronic or trollin.

And Nintendo is still the greatest games developer if you ask me, and i would count on a new handheld this year and a new home console next year.

Next 360 is bound to be natal,considering the effort they put in it.

Next sony i'm pretty unsure... but i wouldnt count on anything before 2012.

I never really saw the appeal of games like Metroid, and Zelda has been a series of remakes with a few cool things added each time.

As for Natal, I don't know. I prefer a conventional system from Xbox, and I believe M$ has said it's being made for the 360, not to replace it. Besides, EndWar showed us that voice commands don't work.

I'm okay with your metroid opinion (everyone has one, so i can't and i won't blame you) but zelda's have been pretty much completely different from every game of the series (even though i would like the bow and slinghot to give place to a crossbow). Saying every zelda is a remake is like saying every Final Fantasy was a remake.

We don't mention FF round h'ya...

I don't know why anyone likes it, but to me, turn based combat means instantly bad game.

I will automatically despise any game that contains any of the following.

1. Turn based combat.
2. Escort missions.
3. Time limits.

I think it's the glamour of discovering soemthing new while trying to outsmart your oponent (FF has time limits and excort missions?)
