I'm not even capable of giving a solitary care about the next gen because I'm so overwhelmed by the volume of gaming we already have that I'd just like some time to enjoy all of the stuff that already exists. Like I'm still discovering gems from NES era.
Get outta here, hipster.
So I beat Gears1 (360) yesterday. Now I've beaten every single one of em. Now where's that ME3 beta I was supposed to get from that BF3 thing, ah well, screw it.
Don't hate on Retro games man, hell I'm still playing Chrono Trigger from the (S)NES time. And as for the new Xbox, FUCK YOU MICROSOFT.
For every two minutes of glamour, there are eight hours of hard work."
I'm just saying, from a personal standpoint. There are way too many good games I haven't played for me to be willing to shell out 500-600 dollars on a brand new console an anticipation of even newer games.
And I don't think any this-gen console needs an update at all. At this point, our hardware and graphics are more than capable of providing a full and robust experience for the gamer. They serve their purpose way better than we'd ever need them to to actually enjoy a game. Graphics may have been a problem in early 2000, when it threatened to break the suspension of disbelief because they were so blocky and couldn't express the full details of the game universe as, say, the art directors imagined it. But now they're hardly even a problem for even the crappiest console titles. It's no longer difficult to visually communicate things due to hardware limitations, for most cases.
