Well with what everyone is saying on this thread plus the fact that maybe they don't want what happened when the 360 came out, games coming out on bot h the 360 and the Next.

don't see the point to backwards compatible games for the next gen anyway. the 360 and ps3 are far too outdated, if you want to play ancient games in 800x600 up-scaled to 720p then just buy an old console. I'm sure they will be selling used for dirt cheap once next gen hits.

Yep it's like complaining that the Wii U doesn't play NES cartridges.

Who cares? Not me.

If I want to play old games, I'll just hook up my old system.

In reality, though, all my old game systems sit gathering dust... along with all my old games.

I end up wanting to play the new hotness. Not the old outdated stuff.


SCREW backward compatibility. Time wasted.

With current ps4 and this 'rumor' i dont see a point to buy next xbox, except exclusives which are two again in my opinion, gears of war and halo.

I'm not a big fan of GOW, but I have been following halo since the very beginning. the only reason I would get the 720 is for Halo 5. not sure I'd want to waste $500 to play one game. but I do love the exclusives for PS3.. the entire uncharted series was amazing, heavy rain probably one of the best games I've ever played. I guess we will see soon enough what next gen has to offer. I don't have a particular preference to either platform, the specs seem to be identical. the only real difference is going to be the controller and exclusive titles...

Not to rain on microsofts parade, but given sonys recent announcement and the rumors from M$, I would buy a ps4 in a heartbeat over an xbox.

Why would I pay for an xbox that has literally no advantages over its rival system.

I do most of my gaming on PC nowadays, but my friends play on consoles and I will tell them to stay away from xbox (if these rumors are true). I will also purchase a playstation for the first time in my life.

PS4:
Used games
Free PSN
Better hardware
Worse motion controller


Xbox 720:
No used games
Pay 60 bucks a year for live
Worse hardware
Kinect


I mean given the rumors it seems like this is how it will shape up. I can't really think of a reason to get an xbox (I'm not partial to kinect).

Correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure both consoles are using the new Jaguar APU, both have 8GB of RAM.

Is there are any fresh predictions on rumors about nextgen Xbox after Sony showed what they got... I am really wondering what Microsoft has to offer...
Can't wait to see an "Xbox meeting" and E3 battle...
