It seems every lemming is coming out of this gen scarred and hurt, and whoever you talk to says they are going to think hard about it next gen and probably end up getting a PS4.

Heck they are even talking about future games they want and how the PS controller should change to fit their new needs.

Whats the general consensus SW, common sense tells us that alot of 360 owners will in fact jump ship next gen to the devopment-team heavy SS (sony side)

Most people are jumping ship to pc gaming.

I might just have a pc and (whichever next gen console is weakest but has the best exclusives)

I wouldn't say it's going to fail hard by any means, there is still a lot of potential to be seen and a lot of great franchises which people are expecting to be brought back for the next-gen.

A few leaked documents have told us what ideas they are planning with the next Xbox and so far everything that has been rumored sounds promising and great, if any of it is true we can expect the Xbox 720 to be a real power house.

In the end both Sony and Microsoft will give us a good show and a decent fight so we can look forward to the future with some promise. Personally i don't know how one can pick one console over the other, i'm definitely getting both but sticking with PC as my main platform.

Coomon sense tells me that you have no idea what you are talking about and that your observation about lemmings is completely Flawed, For my own Part i will get whichever console has the most games in my favorite Genre, This gen it was the 360 hands down, Next gen it could be a different console, Only fanboys choose there consoles based on Brand loyalty, REAL gamers go where the Games are and this gen it's the 360 by a huge margin.

I can see that happening. Not many people like the 360 due to Kinect and it's likely that Microsoft will continue the shovelware for the next console. Not to mention that people don't like paying for XBL...

PC gaming is also seeing a rise, people are flocking to PC and PlayStation at the moment which is a good thing as that's where the quality is.

honestly going by whats actually happening with sony's financial state, it would be more probable that cows would be the ones jumping ship and not out of choice.

and gamerwillz...still at the jekyll and hyde act i see.

People are flocking to the PC From the Ps3 and the 360, don't be a fool and think people are flocking to the Ps3, if they where the Ps3 would have overtaken the 360 by now, in fact i know 1 person wjo recently switched from Ps3 to 360 just so they could play dawnguard, but that doesn't really mean anything.

Microsoft didn't fail this gen, they're the only manufacture that has had stable income for the whole generation.

That's correct, PC is getting some love from consolites. Some PS3 guys have jumped to PC already, including me. But there are still some who jumped from 360 to PS3. Many people who I know already did.

If all these people are flocking over to PS3, why is the 360 still smashing PS3 in sales every month? This can't be a region specific phenomena.

Of course. Third console curse. It happened with the Saturn. It happened with the N64. It happened with the PS3. It will happen with the next Xbox.

N64 wasn't nintendo's 3rd console, they have been around all 7 generations, it was there 4th console.

The Virtual Boy was the true victim of the third console curse :P

#26 Posted by Malta_1980 (11215 posts) -

everything can happen, however considering 360 was more successful than the original xbox there is also a huge possibility the next xbox might even exceed the 360 in terms of sales / quality of games..

I think ppl shouldnt stick to just a particular brand and if they cannot afford multiple systems, just do some research and get the console that suits them most..

Honestly I dont understand why ppl would want a console to fail...

The Color TV Game series were five different dedicated consoles, each designed to play a specific game or set of games. They were very similar to the early Pong home console. The players controlled their paddles with dials attached directly to the machine. Additionally, as an alternative to the standard version, a white-colored C Battery powered model of the Color TV Game 6 was introduced. With a limited-run of a few hundred units, these are largely considered the most prized by serious collectors. Computer TV Game, unlike Nintendo's other console did not use a removable storage system to store its games, either in cartridge or disc form. It was only distributed in Japan and was a port of Nintendo's arcade game Computer Othello. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nintendo_video_game_consoles Nintendo's first venture into the video-gaming industry was securing rights to distribute the Magnavox Odyssey video game console in Japan in 1974. Nintendo began to produce its own hardware in 1977, with the Color TV Game home video game consoles. Four versions of these consoles were produced, each including variations of a single game (for example, Color TV Game 6 featured six versions of Light Tennis). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nintendo

PS3 is outselling 360 every month. In about one year PS3 will pass the 360 in overall sales. The 360 only sells better in COD land, the USA.

Last year the 360 outsold the Ps worldwide by 800,000 units. most of which where sold in the last 3 months of last year.

Dont know what happen last year. Just know PS3 in very close, about 1-2 million close to passing 360. A console that came out 1 year before So do the math buddy, the PS3 has outsold the 360 since the PS3 launched. And as of right now the PS3 beating the 360 everyday. Next year, game over. Bring on next gen :cool:

it's not 1 million dude, it's about 2.8 million at the beginning of this year the 360 stood at 65.8 million the Ps3 was at 62.0 million http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=461642 We know that in the first half of this yer the Ps3 outsold the 360 by about 1 million units so 3.8 million minus 1 million is 2.8 million, if the site i posted is too complicated for you to understand then let me know and i will try to explain better, i understand that not everybody can understand Financial reports. According to MS the 360 now stands at 70 million consoles sold.

Generations are defined by ascension, not by power or games.
