Dear developers. STOP announcing games for the 360.

Every time I see a new game announced for this generation of consoles I breathe a giant sigh and say there's no place like home.

Developers KNOW the new consoles are coming this year, they have the damn dev kits sitting on their desks. They have games in the pipeline.

Everyone is sitting pretty waiting for these new consoles to arrive, meanwhile we're being spoon-fed game after game that feels like filler in a year where we should be receiving little to no games in preparation for the NEWLY ANNOUNCED NEXT-GEN titles to arrive.

I don't want to spend another penny on a game that I'm going to be shelving in 6-8 months. There's dozens of games that are announced for the 360 that don't even have release dates and we're supposed to be excited for them over the actual hardware of the next-gen? What a waste of time.

Rockstar and Kojima, I'm looking at you.


So let's just have devs throw away games they've been working on for years, thus causing them to lose thousands upon millions of dollars and then we are faced with the repercussions of that.

Some of these games may have started development anywhere between 2010-2012. They had no way of knowing exactly when the next gen consoles were gonna be released so they just continued ot make games for the 360. Don't complain about there being too many games to choose/play. That isn't exactly an "issue" in my book.


I honestly feel that way, as stupid and illogical as it sounds. I know they aren't putting all their effort into the game because it's not top priority anymore. I don't want their filler garbage.

The problem is that I have my fancy new Wii U sitting here and I'm enjoying ZombiU and waiting for Rayman. Nintendo understands that the next-gen is here and are well into the software, whereas MS is quiet as a baby and Sony should just announce their crap right now, I don't want to wait until the 20th, do you? It's an announcement not a god-damn launch.

You're acting like the system will be released the day after the announcement. Go lie down in the snow.

Wow, TC. Very impatient, I'd hate to see you in the sack! Get some self control.






But yeah, I completely agree! I want every new game I read about now to be next gen & giving me something to be excited about, other than my shiny new toy.

I suffer from delayed orgasm. I take forever in the sack. Some would say I'm like Microsoft in ANNOUNCING THEIR GOD DAMN CONSOLE.

What's wrong with releasing their magnum opus for this gen at the end of this gen?
