Is the PS4 the last generation of pure gaming?

#1starman9000Posted 11/5/2013 11:18:59 PM
I keep hearing that this is the last gen for old school gaming systems, I don't really believe that.

I know that tablets and smart phones count as gaming, but I think they are gaming secondary to the other features. I don't even count the above as gaming devices...

I might sound old but my first system was an Amstrad and then a sega master system before the sony playstations, I like a dedicated system because they look cool and they are great.

What do you guys think as I hope they don't die out like predicted...

Next gen will be the time of Project Flare and others similar. Pay for a service instead of a box. I still think companies will provide playstions, xboxes, and ataris though.

So long as there is a massive following of hardcore gaming, and there is and always will be, then hardcore games and devices to play them, will always be made.

That's true.

I mean the Xbox one seems like a cool idea but I get the feeling that games are secondary to them.

I want proper games and not half ass titles that are for people who have ADHD attention spans

Yep. You were fine until this post. Sorry that Microsoft is offering a gaming console with other things added on.

See, 1+2=3. It's simple math. You don't know how computers work, do you? The extra features on Xbox One aren't running all of the time. That means that whatever program you have running gets all of the resources. Hence, games will be on par with both consoles. Not to mention the fact that they have nearly identical feature sets, it's just that the Internet decided that Microsoft was the bad guy.

(inb4 Microsoft fanboy, shill, apologized, whatever stupid name you want to call me for pointing out some facts)

Let me ask you, did the PS2's gaming ability suffer from the added ability to play DVDs? What about all of the resources it took to add the CD GUI? The answer is no. Because that's not how computers work.

If anything, PS4 is more games oriented than the PS3.

What I was implying is that short games are fun but I would hate if huge games like fallout to be the minority in the world of games.

Stories sell games with immersive worlds and great characters, short games don't do that
