Let's see, we have 360's crashing. Along with version after version of the 360.

Then we have the PS3. First it's too expensive, then they ditch the $500-20GB console and so forth and so forth. Not to mention the thing isn't selling very well.

And now we have the Wii which many feel doesn't improve on the GC that much.

Just what is going on this gen? When you bought a SNES, you got what you paid for and the the thing was reliable. No different versions and many great games.

When you bought the Genesis, the same thing.

When you bought the N64, you could drop it down a flight of stairs and the thing would still work.

Back in the day, nobody complained that the controller wasn't comfortable or it didn't have rumble.

Hardware issues? Nah, just dust needing a good blow off the inside of the cartridge.

I made a topic about not liking this gen before and my opinion still stands.

This generation is bunk. I'm really starting to hate it.

You're starting to hate it? I've already been hating it. That's why instead of getting a 360 or PS3, I plan ongetting game systems I missed out like the Xbox and Dreamcast. I'm referring to this as the "Milking gen" cause that's what all three has been doing pretty much. :|

Flame away, I don't care. I see the truth, brothers. A gaming crash is inevitable.

I don't expect to be able to convince current-gen, spoiled gamers this. I just needed a rant.

I thought consoles were for playing games, not dropping down flights of stairs. With progress and complexity, the potential issues that might arise go up exponentially. Go play your beloved n64 or deal with it and move on.

Do what I do, get a souped up computer, play PC games till the next gen consoles drop in price considerably and they got greatest hit games for cheap. That's what I did before I purchase my PS2.

gaming crash? LOL right now more than EVER gaming is becoming more and more mainstream, if anything the bar has been raised... ALOT this time around and it will take more time to release the real games, Xbox always was slow on exclusives so that doesn't count.

imo this gen just blows. The PS3 is looking like a over priced POS (though killzone is beginning to look good, I will keep an eye on it), I am on my 5th 360 (If Microsoft just added a 120 mm fan wouldnt that fix it?), and the wii has last gen..... well every thing except controller! I am just going to hunker down and be a hermit :cry:.

the ps3 is selling rather poorly compared to competition -- This gen Will improve in the fall and into 2008 -- many great titles are going to be released, but i agree -- as of now its underwhelming.

I love those days, and yeah I agree with you, but comparing this gen to older gens is pointless. Thats like comparing stars in todays sports to stars in the past.

According to this PS3 will surpass XBOX 360 and Wii in a few months given the fact that the reasons you have stated for PS3 are subjective.

A lot of the consoles you mention are "solid state" type consoles (no moving parts). Things are getting expensive (Sony) and complicated to build (360, PS3, Wii)... and when you try to keep it a bit simpler, you don't get a huge leap forward in tech (Wii). I think the more complicated and technical they get, the more the price will rise, and problems will arise. Also, the NES sucked when it came to reliability with dirty cartridges... sure, it worked... on the 50th time blowing in the damn thing, but we didn't have the internet or SW to **** about that then! LOL. Have you taken apart an SNES... there's like two diodes, a circuit board, 4 rocks, 8 rubber bands, and maybe one or two LED's. What I'm saying is... things have changed a LOT since then. Is that excuse a good one for the consumer? No... but is it true... you bet.

Actually I agree with you completely.

I want a PS3, but they've priced it too high. I'd like to believe that the 80gb will go down to $500 once the 60gb is sold out, but I'll have to wait to see it happen. Even then, that's like the top I'm willing to pay and I'd only do it once LittleBigPlanet is out.

The 360 is breaking too much to the point where it's totally off my radar.

And the Wii....so much promise, yet nothing has been delivered. Sheep screamed for months that the reason we didn't see new, hardcore games was because nobody expected the Wii to be a success etc etc. We were told to wait until E3- I did, and not a single hardcore game was announced as far as I can tell. I looked through the last 10 pages of videos on gametrailers and with the exception of MP3, I couldn't find a single f'n thing I was interested in. So despite its sales, right now I consider it a massive flop.

Screw the consoles get the handhelds, the DS and in some opinons the PSP are where it's at right now.

Anyway this gen really has started off terribly, and noone use this "nostlagia" crud.

This time last gen we had Devil May Cry, SSX, Tekken Tag Tournament, Morrowwind, Metal Gear Solid 2, Final Fantasy X, Super Smash. Bros. Melee, Halo, Guilty Gear X, Klonoa 2, Unreal Tournament, Wave Race: Blue Storm, Dead or Alive 3, Tony Hawk 3, Rogue Squadron, and Grand Theft Auto III.

As you can see this gen is an utter embrassment to the last.

And this is as of less then 2 years after the PS2 launched.

Seriously I find it extremly hard to believe that this gen isn't ridiculously inferior to the last at this time let alone par on it.

No offense but anyone who disagrees, I have a hard time believing their statement.

Seriously can anyone even counter that list as of gaming quality as of the 360 to present?

I felt the same way until E3. The PS3 is finally getting enough games for me to want one, and it got a $100 price drop on the 60GB model. I will wait until the 80GB drops $100, then get it. I was interested in the 360 until all the issues started popping up. Now MS admits a design flaw which pretty much means 100% defect rate. A three year warrenty isn't going to cut it for me. I plan on playing my next console for alot longer than 3 years. And the Wii just isn't a option. I want a next gen console, and the Wii is basicly a overclocked GC with a new controller. Thats just not next gen to me. I don't care how cute Mario Galaxy is, it's no Call of Duty 4, Bioshock, Assassin's Creed, UT3, or Heavenly Sword thats for sure. So while I did feel like you, I am finally at piece as to which console I want.

Yeah next gen has been meh. THe 360 has lots of great games for it though. not many AAA. by now PS2 had like 12-20 allready. But dont worry business is picking up this holiday and next year looks promising as well.

MY beef is how we will see to many sequals, less innovation, more graphics, and less original amazing new ips.

Handhelds seem to be experiencing something of a golden age at the moment, so at least there's that. Otherwise the generation has been something of a wash so far, but things will likely stabilize within a year or so.

Other than maybe 10 games I found last gen kinda sucked. So far it this gen has definitely sucked but I see a bright future for at least the PS3 with LBP and the big variety in games Sony is producing. The 360 killed itself literally and the Wii is really a joke for actual gaming. If PS3 actually does fail (looking much less likely now) I'll just be giving up on consoles... PC will be great with Crysis and once devs catch up with DX10.

Sadly I have to agree with you.Before this gen I was a huge Sony fan then Sony screwed me over and just as I saw a light at the end of the tunnel they screw me over again,and then Nintendo (who I'm also a die hard fan of) seem to be forgetting about me and going after a different kind of gamer,:( and don't even get me started on Microsoft.

I hope at the upcoming game conferences this year (E 4 all,TGS, X07) I'm proven wrong but I just don't know anymore.:(

I can't get enough of older gens either. Tip? Get yourself some emulators. Right now I'm playing Rogue Squadron, GTA VC, X Wing, Tie Fighter, WCW Mayhem, KOTOR, and a buncha prev-gen stuff, can't get enough of it. But I wouldn't consider this gen bad, in fact I think the 360 alone has a buncha fantastic games, and a lot more on the way. Wii and PS3 were huge dissapointments, but 360 alerady has some instant classics.

I agree on pricing. Wii (especially its controllers)is overpriced, PS3 is too expesnive for a game console, the 360 is relatively expensive + has extra costs, and it seems the best games coming out rely on the same gameplay as almost 10 years ago.

But we're also human beings. Beings that raise our standards too high and expect more and more with each gen. Eventually there is a breaking point. The problem is that ever since last-gen, gamers expect excellent graphics, and if the visuals are great or 'up-to-scratch' then the gameplay will follow and be awesome. What happened to "wow, I hope I can do 'such-and-such' in this level," or "imagine the addicitveness of this game!"? Stop being so demanding. It's because of your demand that we're getting sequel after sequel after sequel. And when do get what we want, we throw it back at their face saying "It's not as good as the original" or "where was THIS feature!!!???" or "Why are the graphics crap?" even though this gen has technically devliered better games than any other gen.

A huge problem I'm having with this gen is that games are becoming more like real life and less like games. One reason I prefer Excite Truck over Motorstorm is BECAUSE Excite Truck is more unrealistic. I want to catapult an entire vehicle like it's a piece of plastic into the great wall of China. I want to soarhundreds of metresthrough the air and deform the terrain beneath me BECAUSE there's no way I can do that in real life.

I blame the gamer who expects too much of this gen. Take a step back, realise how FUN the game is, and then see if this gen sucks.
