Forums - Gaming Discussion - So... We really just went through all of August with basically no next gen info from MS and Sony?

This is the least hype I have ever seen for a new console generation. I feel nothing. The last console gen to truly feel hyped up going in was the buildup for 360, PS3, and Wii. Then again I am very jaded seeing the joke "AAA" gaming has become and seeing the disc era in it's last days does not make me excited.

Nvidia conference just blew these consoles out of the water, because we know the actual price for what we are going to get.

Its just 2 months from release and still nothing...

Future historians will write tomes about how poorly we've all handled this moment. Ours won't be the Greatest Generation, but the Petulant Generation.

I feel the need to remind everyone that the same was said about Nintendo when they waited until January 13th, less than 2 months before the Switch’s launch, to reveal the details, and look how well that turned out for them.

Patience.

On one hand yes but on the other Switch was inheriting a monopoly in one market from the 3DS the was a massive safety net for it in case things went wrong which is something many people back then were not realizing secondly we knew details would be given that day as the reveal trailer a month and a half earlier said all details would be given in the January event here people don't know any details and when they'll be given details that's a key difference as the was schedule people knew of in regards to the Switch we also knew the Switch release date before the January event.



The sad reality of this is that even if they waited till October to give out al the info for what would be a November launch, it wouldn't make a difference to them with regards to the sales.

It's just annoying to s because this isn't what we are accustomed to with regards to consoles. I mean, do we really need to know what the prices are and all that other stuff 4-5 months before launch? Hell Nvidia just announced their new range of GPUs less than 20 days before they launch. And the cheapest one costs $499.

It would be great if we knew, but them telling us 3-6 months early is honestly a courtesy... a misguided one at that.

Make no mistake, this pisses me the hell off, though I can understand where they are coming from too.

You said it yourself, they showed off the UI. What more do you want bruh?

Hahaha true.

But in all seriousness it would've at least been nice if they sat down infront of a TV and literally just went through the UI menu by menu.

You realise this happens with products more expensive than consoles right? 

Like Samsung did it in August with the announcement of the S7 (not just price and launch), cheapest model was $649. And seems they didn't have any issues selling it.

We've known about these consoles for over a year now. Ppl will be financially ok to be part of the launch quite easily.

Phones are obtained free through contract deals by the majority of people so you're not paying the full cost up front that's not a good comparison as you cover the costs in your service subscription over two years.

Most retailers will allow you to pay for your product on a monthly basis of like $35 a month though.

Granted I'm not sure if they do this for a launch console. 

And not everyone is contracting for a tablet, like the S7 I mentioned (i forgot to say tab)

Sony and MS could announce the launch details a week before and it wouldn't change a thing. 

LOL

Are you guys that rich that buying a console is like going to the cinema without knowing what is on theaters? You just open the wallet and buy whatever console in selling, isn't it? 

No but I can reasonably assume that saving $600 would cover whatever next gen console I wanted.  If anything I'd have money to spare probably.  Do you assume it will be $0 until they tell you different?

Agreed.

I'm actually starting to wish for them to wait until next month to reveal their prices just to get some people even more pissed.



Within the next two weeks we should have prices and dates right?
it cant go on, its time one of them moves and does a announcement.
