Next Gen Time!

Rev up the rumor mills, according to sources at MCV, both the playstation 4 and the next Xbox will be unveiling at E3 2012.  The sad news is that E3 2012 doesn’t happen until June, but this will be the first time all 3 next-gen consoles (nintendo, sony, microsoft) will be simultaneously unveiling against each other.

Will we get mouse and keyboard support?  What are the possibilities of consoles combining player bases ala PS3/PC’s with CS:GO?  WILL ANYONE PLAY PC GAMES EVER AGAIN?!

  1. PC games are awesome if you only play on console you are doing a mistake.

  2. Wheeeeelp. I hope they combine the player bases. I can’t wait to see whats in store for the next gen consoles. Hopefully Nintendo’s is better than the Wii was.

  4. Still, even if that’s true, the launch of the “720” wont interfere with the launch of Halo 4. Microsoft isn’t THAT stupid. We can probably expect to see it in very late 2013 maybe?

  5. I personally dont think they will be releasing it before another 2 years or so possibly even 3 years if the games are still being produced at a good quality for both the consoles. This will most like be a teaser and nothing more.

  6. LOL MAD
    Next PS & Xbox will be interesting, but I’m curious to see what Nintendo will do. I’m nervous cause unless they change up and do something really nice, its going to be like watching the system I grew up with fizzle away. I hope its not some shit like another Wii. If it was the only shot they would have is to make the moving and remote shit perfect along with totally in sync shit with your movements going on in the game. That as well as they really fucking need some good ass games that make people wanna buy the system. Like ones who buy Xbox for Halo and Gears and ones who got PS3 for God of War and MGS4.
    I think having a connection btwn whatever console and the PC will be the only way PC has a chance of growing at all.

  7. I expect the consoles to release holiday 2013, at least the xbox and ps4 (if this isnt just a rumor).

  8. I would just like a popular skill based FPS and which ever system provides it I’ll move over to.

  9. All I can think of in regards to next-gen is just how ridiculously awesome Forza Motorsport 5 is going to be.

    Yikes, I hope not. No way I want to face someone on a keyboard & mouse while I use a controller. XBox & PS3 would make sense, but I just don’t see that ever happening.

    I saw a statement from Sony that claimed PS3 was intended to have a 10 year lifecycle – which would put PS4 at 2014.

    I’m excited to see what nextgen is going to offer, but most of the really exciting technology (holographics for instance) is still way way too expensive as far as I know for consumer based devices. Releasing something with a marginally higher clockspeed for the graphics chip doesn’t excite me much.

  11. xBox and PS will NEVER mix player bases. You have to pay for one, while the other is free. MS would never go for that unless sony also charged the same price.

    FFXI had/has combined player bases from PS3, Xbox and PC.
    Also DRJ I realise this post is a week old now but I think Sony have said they’re not going to un-veil the PS4 at E3.
