15. Re: Morning Consolidation Jan 10, 2013, 16:04 Jivaro
If the next generation of consoles are going to last as long as the current generation has, not only do I hope the specs are high...I would be willing to drop the 400-600 dollars on the new system. What I am really worried about is that they will under power the system and simultaneously try to make it last 5-10 years.

I am PC gamer first, so when I buy a console all the other things it can do besides gaming have become more and more important to me. I own a PS3 because it has Blu-Ray and because I can access any of the online services (like Netflix) without having to pay any extra fees to Sony. I also happened to like the exclusives on Sony better this generation, but I didn't know that would be the case when I bought it. Had MS put Blu-Ray in the 360 and made online services independent of MS not require a Live sub, I would have probably bought one. I paid more initially for the PS3 and it's non-gaming features, but the cost of ownership has been significantly less then it would have been had I bought an XBOX 360. Given my happiness with that approach, I will be looking at the next generation in much the same way. If Sony tries to move towards MS's model, I will simply hook a PC up to the TV instead. The console would be easier in many ways but not so much easier that I am willing to redundantly pay for content. I know that for people who really like multiplayer console gaming XBOX Live is significantly better then PSN, but that aspect just doesn't apply to me or my wife.
