Many of you thin that the PS4 and new xbox will blow the Wii u out the water technology wise, and I really don't see it. I don't see a major graphics jump that we saw from the PS1 to XBOX, or even the PS2 to XBOX 360 (HD Era). Even if the Wii U was not released, does anyone see the PS4/XBOX being much better than the PS3/XBOX360?
There will definately be an improvement but I don't believe it with be it will improve that much. I do see both Microsoft and Sony being a little more tough on online user keys, maybe blocking used sales, etc.
Also I do not have the time to play every single game that comes out. That's not to excuse the Wii U for whatever lack of multiplatform games they will not receive, but I have/had such a backlog on my old XBOX, XBOX 360, and PS3 (bc of PS Plus) I often find myself buying games on sale, and I never get a chance to play them, bc for the most part a lot of games have good ideas behind it, but they mostly are all the same.
Although I really enjoyed Spec Ops The Line (Apocalypse Now is my favorite movie), I ask myself did I really need to play this game. This is really is Gears of War in a different setting, and to that effect, its Mass Effect 3 in a different setting, Uncharted in a different setting, etc. Even all the Uncharted games, some of the best games released on PS3, was ok. While playing it, I felt it was one of the best games ever made, but now I look back on all three games which I beat I find them all forgettable.
The only games that stand out from this gen was the original Mass Effect, Deus Ex, Bioshock, and Heavy Rain.
Bottom line, I feel that the new XBOX and PS4 will be just like the PS3 and XBOX 360 except with more power and graphics. I think games have reached an state where graphics can plateau and maybe the new systems will innovate instead of evolve into a better PS3/XBOX 360...
I also think I might not like videogames as much as I used to, but playing Nintendo games does have a fun factor. I find that when I play games like Assassin's Creed 3, I get about 2-3 hours in and I literally ask myself, "what am i doing?' and I turn off the game.
Does anyone else get like this?
