is it weird that next gen consoles looks so unappealing right now?

#1ps2snesgodPosted 12/23/2013 11:11:43 PM
I recently bought a vita and with the combination of that,my 360 backlog plus indie games and my currently indiecast with ghost blade and pier solar on the horizon, the ps4 and xbox one one feel kinda pointless. On top of that the games that i would want next gen for are on my 360 (dragon age, titanfall, evil within, metal gear solid 5 while the vita will eventually get persona 5 platinum edition or whatever its called..

how do you guys feel about 8th gen consoles?

No, it's not weird at all, they're both only about a month old at this point. I can't recall ever seeing this much complaining and disappointment during previous console launches, are there a lot of new gamers picking up next gen consoles or something?

Nope, not weird.

There's not enough compelling content on either platform.

My PC is leagues more powerful anyways...but I'm still getting the ps4 in March when the Second Son bundle drops. Dat Ground Zeroes will be nice too.

could just be that hte leap between last gen in this new gen just isn't that jaw-dropping.... Its not like snes to n64..

ps4 = a ps3 with better graphics imo... nothing revolutionary. I've got zero interest in the PS4 system until it gets a new Metal Gear Solid game (MGSV doesn't count)...

I agree. I don't want any of what the new gens are trying to push on use; I don't want to share. I don't want to tell my Xbox "XBox on!" I don't need every single one of my games to be all about the online multiplayer to the exclusion of a fun single-player experience (I am looking pointedly in your direction, Armored Core V and Verdict Day). I don't want the absence of local multiplayer. I don't want my video game systems to require being online even for a day, much less all the time. I don't want trophies and achievements and TV and sports. I don't want youtube and skype and Windows glass. I don't want twitch TV and Skynet and Judgement Day.

I just want to have fun in front of a TV with my friends.
I think this Gen, I might invest in an N64 and call it a day. M-a-y-b-e a Wii U, but I don't want Miiverse either.

Most of the PS4 games are also on PS3 so it's not weird you're not interested in next generation. You're not a sucker like most of the early adopters.
