Till games utalise more than 4 cores and require more than 2GB of VRAM then "next gen" games don't mean much to my system. By the time games do require those two things I would of upgraded anyway.

Ditto, it's gonna be a while till console ports catch up to quad cores and 2GB+ of VRAM.

I'm pretty confident my current computer specs will be able to handle most next gen games, the only real problem for me will be how much hard drive space they will require.
Because there's no way in hell I'm converting over to cloud storage / cloud gaming.
