Welcome to "The Last Gen" How many of you are sticking around for a while?

I'm not picking up a PS4 any time soon. There are... no games. (That interest me and aren't already on PS3)

I'd also rather wait to see how the current gen shapes up. Are F2P games going to end up becoming 1/4 of all major releases? That's a future I want no part of, but even the worst F2P games make more money than your average retail game these days. It's too appealing to publishers.

Are "MMO-lite" games going to take off like The Division, Destiny and The Crew? (Half-baked "MMO" content to justify an always on connection and likely an account code in the box that makes used copies worthless) I'm sorry, but I'm not interested in grinding items or my character to be able to better enjoy content. It's designed to be addictive and that doesn't do anything for me. Especially when it comes to having to grind PvE to get superior game to dominate in PvP. (And half-assed co-op content in comparison to single-player campaigns)

Then there's the fact that half of the publishers and developers from last generation don't exist anymore or are declined greatly. That leaves the current generation in the hands of very few mega-publishers and they're only going to release sports games, dumbed down shooters, dumbed down action RPGs and "high-octane" arcade racing games. Also, imagine the power EA, Acti and Ubi have now that they make up probably 70% of the market.

Anyways, I have way too many games I missed out on last generation to jump into the current generation. (Feels so weird to say that) I'm playing Killer Is Dead now with Remember Me and GTAV right afterward. Also, I bet PS Plus games are about to get awesome for the US instead of sucking ass compared to the EU PS Plus.

There's a lot of Hypocrites bashing on MMO P2P gamers, saying they will always play online for free. Now they will buy a PS4, and give any excuse as to why they become PSN+ members now lol.

I won't buy a PS4 until either there is a PS4 Slim or FFXV Versus or KH3 is actually in stores everywhere.

I bought a PS4 and kept my PS3. I'm in the honeymoon phase with the PS4 right now but I'll come back to the PS3, there are too many great games I want to play again.

PS4 has too many indie and F2P games announced so far, in comparison to so few mainstream titles. The new console has yet to justify its existence, as many of its main attractions could have been made for the PS3. Mainstream exclusives so far are much less exciting than what the Xbox One and especially the Wii U promise to deliver.

The consoles already have technical problems, and we all know the current gen fiasco in terms of high failure rate. Currently, the only moderately reliable console maker is Nintendo.

And of course, let's not forger NO FREE ONLINE MULTIPLAYER ON THE PS4!

You sir, are absolutely right!

Around the E3 times, i was one of the people defending free online and saying Sony got rid of one of the most pro-consumer features. They were too occupied praising the PS4 for...simply NOT CHANGING (ie no DRM). Sony completely manipulated the fanbase. They were, are and are always going to be powerless to defend their rights. It's no use. They will gladly defend their PAID ONLINE, they...the people who always bashed Microsoft for charging money for Xbox Live Gold.

I promise to defend free online multiplayer in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health. I will defend it and honor my principles all the days of my life. Forever and ever, until the day i die.
