Merge the console and pc into one platform. That's all they need to do.

This whole Xbox version or PC version is BS. I should be able to take a game and play it on a console OR a PC

Agree with Beamer -- the arrival of the new Wii means MS and SONY have to step up to the plate or lose.
I'm not really sure that the Wii U will spell doom for the others considering Nintendo is finally getting in line with those current consoles. I'd love to think that Sony has learned well from their PS3 launch cluster-fuck but the Vita tells me they still have a way to go. Either way, I see the console industry constantly supporting 3 systems for quite a long time.

The current consoles are maxed out tech-wise and you can just about hear them groaning trying to perform 30 fps.

I think MS is "going all in" with that rumored DVR/Xbox hybrid for XMAS 2012. And it will be expensive and it might flop.


I'm curious how much of a priority backwards compatibility is this time around. Both MS and Sony kinda half assed it before giving up completely. (Sadly) I suspect it will be largely ignored...


BC is something I don't care about and, frankly, don't want. I don't want design compromises made for BC. I don't want costs cut elsewhere for it, either. I have a PS3. I have a 360. If I want to play one of those games I'll hook up that system. But it's been incredibly rare that I've had a desire to play an older game, and typically when I pop it in it's a matter of minutes before the weaker designs and graphics drive me insane. Some get better as you get further away, but when something new and shiny shows up the flaws of the current gen become very obvious.

im more interested in a tablet gaming platform like an ipad but with the processing and graphics power of a next gen console coupled with the traditional controls like the wii u tablet. i hate tilting the screen of an ipad for driving sims and tapping the screen creates a lot of stress on my finger tips since there is no soft feedback like pressing a button. not to mention the fact that placing the controls on the screen reduces the viewable area of a game. i hope the rumors about a removable/portable xbox tablet is true. but like sony said about the vita; if the hand held performed like a ps3 it would not be comfortable to hold as a portable device because of the heat generated. maybe it will be possible on the next next gen console.

They both are bowing out right now. I really don't see PS3 being replaced for 4 more years. If M$ just releases a system in 2 years it is game over Sony.

Sony thinks they got burned almost exclusively for being late to the party. The numbers support that if you look at them in a vacuum (which many people sadly do.)

Sony will not wait 4 more years. They wanted to. Microsoft wanted to. Both feel they no longer can. The WiiU is pushing them very slightly as well.

We'll hear, at the very least, hints at this E3.

They should both bow out and reinvest their money more wisely.

Given that consoles have been cash cows for both of them and in Sony's case, is one of the only aspects of their company that's made money lately, I don't see that happening.

Who Sony and Gaikai? Like it or not Microsoft is dominating the living room and not just as a console only machine.
