Are You Ready For 4 New Consoles in 2013
After a long several year cycle, the seventh generation of consoles is starting to come to an end. Just on the horizon there are several new gaming consoles by new and old gaming companies alike. 2013 looks to be a very promising year for gamers.

  1. Steam Box

    Im sure youve heard by now that Valve, the makers of the Half-Life and Portal series, are planning on making a gaming console of their own.

    Steam Big Picture
    Valve took their first step towards the Steam Box with the introduction of The Big Picture earlier this year. It allows gamers to play their Steam games on a TV.

    Valve already has a patent for a video game controller that has a similar layout to the Xbox 360s controller. One cool feature of Valves potential controller is that you can move some of the buttons around to fit your play style.

    This is sure to be an interesting console, especially because its coming from a PC developer.

  2. OUYA

    Another new console developer coming to the market next year is the OUYA system. It has a unique feature in which all the games will be free-to-try and all will be downloadable. It was well overfunded in its Kickstarter campaign, which had an original goal of $950,000 and ended up getting $8.5 million.

    OUYA System
    The system also has a similar controller layout to that of the PS3 and the Xbox 360. The system is on track, with developer units already shipped out, for its April 2013 release.

  3. PS4

    This is one of the big systems coming to the market. With the success of the Playstation systems its no doubt that this system will be highly supported with games and franchises you know and love.

    Playstation
    Developer kits for the system have already gone out, and there have been lots of talk and analysis about the Xbox 720 and the PS4 releasing soon over at Kotaku, which gives good hope for a 2013 release.

  4. Xbox 720

    The Xbox 720 or the Xbox Durango is the other big player to the console market. Developed by software and hardware powerhouse Microsoft, its no wonder that it will be a highly polished and highly backed system. With a lot of franchises under its belt and the success of the Xbox 360, its also sure to have a large following of gamers.

    Microsoft

    Although it has not been officially announced by Microsoft there have been several clues to its inevitable release. Microsoft has said that the Xbox 360 is designed to have a 10 year life cycle, but because of the failure of their most recent product, Windows 8, release of the Xbox 720 could be pushed up to as early as 2013.

720 will come out. Ouya won't impact the industry the way people think it will. SteamBox won't come out next year. PS4 won't come out in a few years, or hell, even ever.

No because I play on PC.

I'll hold out until late in the generation to buy a console.

Ouya is trash, and not even in the same league. It runs Android and promotes hacking. It'll be filled of flashgames and the same ol shovelwares that's on Android.

Unfortunate situation if Sony doesn't get their act together. I wouldn't buy it if it came out though, too many games from this gen to catch up on.

How is steam box a console?

PCgameruk

Because it will be a closed system, in a console-like packaging, designed to be plugged into a TV and played with a handheld controller.

I am quite curious as to what kind of games it will be playing. Will they need to be specially developed, as if for a new console? Or will it just play PC games? And if that's the case, how it is going to cope with being a closed system, and likely having very limited (if any) potential for hardware upgrades?

1 Steambox will never exist

2. Ouya is trash

3. A true 720 won't come out until at least 2014, in 2013 we'll see a "720 lite"

4. PS4 may never come out at all due to Sony's financial problems

720 will come out next year and have a bigger presence than the Wii U. It's unknown at the moment what the SteamBox exactly is (whether it's just a smaller PC that can be easily hooked up to a TV or something more) Ouya won't do too well since devs won't make that much or even any money off their games. Plus, people use consoles for big releases such as CoD, Halo, Skyrim, etc and Phones/Tablets for smaller titles like Angry Birds, Infinity Blade, Cut the Rope, etc. Ouya is at a disadvantage. The PS4 may not even come out next year. Sony isn't really committed to release dates, just look at the PS3.

I already got four PCs with Steam, I'm not getting a Steambox as I know it today.

Not interested in option Two at all.

That leaves the predictable PS4/720 which I will buy on launch day like I've done with their earlier consoles.

Ouya will fail... no developer is going to take a risk on a system that is very uncertain in a time where money is tight for many people. That will only contain shovelware and indie games. Steambox who knows...

ouya is pointless anyone can make a android pc. Steam box at this point is just a rebranded pc, console gamers wont buy it and hermits will build there own.

Exactly. That's why I'm kind of interested in it. I just want to know what they're actually going to do. If they try to just make a small PC that is "easily hooked up to a TV", I think it'll be a colossal failure, because PCs already do that. Any PC built in the last several years can hook up to a TV with no more effort than a console.

Probably. Looking at your sig, your system is identical to my roommate's new tower we just built, except he has a 3570k, which is at 3.4 ghz (haven't tried OCing yet). He crushes pretty much all games with it. although he's already talking about wanting another 560 to SLI.

1: 720 and ps4 will come 2013-early 2014. sony needs to release right there not a year later.

2: sony gaming department is profitable idk where you gets get the idea of them not.

3: steam said they are mainly relieing on company's to make smaller (pc's) for more living room area or they will

4: oyua or w/e is cool like those $20 things with pacman and stuff on it. Quite few devs are supportiong it to make exclusives

Steam Box won't come out until 2014 or later. Seriously, what is it going to be. A system with the STEAM application that you hook to your HDTV to play PC games in a lower resolution? What PC or Console gamer wants that? Ouya will get released on time. With over $8 million in their pocket there shouldn't be any delays. I expect the majority of the games will be like PSN and XBL games. This would be good younger kids who's parents are on a strict budget. I'll be surprised if they even sell 1 million units their first year. PS4 might not make it until Spring 2014. Sony is still hurting from the PSVita failure and unless they can get a nice loan, I'll be very surprised if they get the PS4 out the door the same time as the next XBox. I know they have dev kits out there, but if the architecture is as difficult as the previous Playstation systems, games will take a long time to complete. XBox Durango should be out in time for Black Friday next year. We know Microsoft is working on at least 2 exclusive titles in house, but other games from RARE, Lionhead, Twisted Pixel and Turn 10. Let's hope the hardware is fully tested this time around. I have no plans to buy any of these at launch. Going to wait and she what happens for the 1st year and then decide which one to buy.

Ouya won't do anything spectacular, it likely won't do much at all. 720 will be the first out with PS4 coming the year after I imagine and steambox, well I dunno about that.

The new XBox and PS3 will do well. Steam box? Meh maybe some people will buy it but most people will stick to using their PC's for steam. Console fans will love their consoles and probably won't even try steam box. Ouya will come out, will sell a few here and there but won't make a massive impact.

My opinion..... XBOX 720 and PS4 will both come out Fall 2014. I just cant imagine that with little to no credible information to date that we will get new consoles a year from now. What about the games? There has been ZERO news on games as well. I cant imagine XBOX 720 launching without a Halo, Gears or Forza game. There is no way that Infinity Ward or Treyarch are ready for a CoD for these systems and what about other games like BF4, Crysis 3 and so on. There is no way that either Sony or MS will have new consoles ready by Fall 2013! Sorry guys, whether you like it or not, you are stuck with 360, PS3 and WiiU for the forseeable future!

I'm getting a Wii U next year, and I'll get a PS4 when it comes out in 2014.

I might get a 720 somewhere down the road as well.

I want to them to come out out so that multiplats on PC will start getting more graphically intensive but I won't buy a new gen console for another 2-3 years. Hell, if things keep going the way they have been going for me the past few months, I simply won't have time for games at all.

Meh. Ouya and Steam Box have no appeal to me. And the way Sony and MS are going Im skipping them next gen. Possible rumored reasons: no BC, blocking of used games, and with dev costs skyrocketing again with stronger hardware I wouldnt be surprised if PS4/720 games released at 79$. If people think the mountains of DLC is bad now, it is going to get even worse later.

I have a 3DS and Wii U. Im set for next gen lol

The Steambox is going to be an interesting challenger. It is quite a bit different from the normal console, but is still trying to imitate it in many ways.
