I'm pretty sure i won't get the next console from Microsoft, they just don't offer the games i like and i'm against paying for online gaming. I think i'll get the PS4 and maybe maybe the rumored steam console. Probably not though cuz i just don't understand how some gamers find the time to play on multiple consoles.


i could i play the WiiU,PS3,Wii.3DS,PSVITA. why do you have a hard time doing that?

lol it's not that i don't want to it's just that next tot gaming i have a partner, friends, family and other commitments which demand their own attention and time.



According to a new study; YouTube, Xbox.com, NeoGaf, N4G, VGChartz, IGN, GameSpot, GameStop, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, All of Europe, FAMITSU, Japan, the rest of Asia and The whole of the Middle East among countless others are experiencing a Tsunami of people in love with Sony's gamings offerings.

Around the Network

Not sure why anyone would buy a 720 if they didn't buy a 360 if MS continues the same trends they've been doing.

People who didn't buy a 360
- Didn't like that the exclusives were mainly shooters.
- Didn't want to pay to play online.
- Bought a PS3 because of blu-ray, free online and other exclusives (though the 720 may have blu-ray...)
- Said it was too expensive when they owned other systems (Not sure what price point they would want? But It would be years before the next system hits $200 or less with a hard drive)
- Didn't like that a good amount of future games were heavily Kinect based and/or greatly influenced by Kinect

I don't see those things changing with the 720. Why would MS allow free online gaming when millions of users per year pay for Live? I could see them lowering the price if subscriptions fell, but no way would they remove it.

The majority of the systems best sellers are shooting games, and Microsoft's biggest IP is a FPS. Why would they make other types of games when they failed in sales ? (Don't forget MS pushed hard with JRPGS at one point: Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon and Tales of Vesperia which were all below expectations in sales.)

Kinect. MS has heavily invested in the Kinect tech and despite the outcry of most hardcore gamers a lot of games come with Kinect like features now and MS still trolls the fanbase with the "Better with Kinect!" tagline.

I am a MS fanboy at heart. I bought the original XBox four months after launch and the 360 one month after launch. I plan on doing the same with the 720, but I can see why no one would want to buy one and I can't see how MS is going to lure PS3/Wii owners to buy one this time around if they didn't before. But that's just me.



It's just that simple.

It depends, but I think NO. I barely have time to play, so one console is more than enough for me. And it might be the PS4. But you never know. I might go for the next XBox f the PS4 doesn't convince me. Anyway, i'm not gonna be an early adopter.

1) Your quote trees are getting obscenely large. No more than three, for the sake of all of our sanities.

2) Stop bickering about this and just drop it. It is honestly no concern of any of yours whether or not he owned a 360. Feel free to discard his opinion and consider him a liar if you don't think he did.

As for the topic, it really depends. It would be in addition to the PS4 rather than as a replacement, just because of all of the Sony franchises that I love. So probably later in the generation when it's a little bit cheaper and has a good number of exclusives to differentiate it.

It's certainly too early now when we know practically nothing about the system.

Oh, and if it uses Kinect as a primary/sole control system, that's an instant "no" from me.

How do i cut the quote trees to 3 Mr moderator

Being called Mr Moderator makes me feel like Ed Miliband that time that Romney called him "Mr Leader".

And you click on one of the quote bubbles further down and press Delete on your keyboard so that only three remain. It would be nice if the site did that automatically, but hey, it would be nice if the site did many things.
