next box gaming power.

#1PigfartsPosted 3/20/2013 5:35:14 AM
I read the new game informer and all they talked about with the next box was

1) kinect 2
2) large focus on social media - facebook
3) better streaming capabilites - hulu and netflix

the article said MS was really pushing this stuff. Did anyone read any articles about how it will handle gaming. I'm not really interested in all that other stuff.

Is it safe to assume the next box will be around the same power as ps4 so there is good multiple plat ports, and both have their own set of good first parties?

Meh. More and more they are appealing to casuals. Kinda sad really.
Microsoft is dissapointing me, hopefully Sony doesn't do the same.
I play games on my console . Nothing more.

while I am an traditional sit on the couch and play with a conrtoller type of guy, I wonder what the future is in Kentic technology. Look have far we have come from the power glove. but I feel even kinect 2 will not be as fun a just witting around with a controll.

every game that have a kinect option the reviews always say stick to a controller.

Some things are just timeless and don't need changing, such as...

- Controllers with buttons
- 2D movies
- Devil May Cry

I don't see how that changes anything. I'm talking about the PS4.
I couldn't care less about PS3 or 2.

This, not much is known about the new xbox but I bet the ps4 will be more powerful. They should go the xbox 1 route and cram the thing with an insane amount of power. I'd rather that than all this kinect and social networking stuff.
