Wait for Next-Gen Consoles?

According to several sources, Microsoft and Sony are holding off on releasing their next-gen consoles until 2014. The companies, with Sony just announcing it is halting production of the PSPGo are reportedly on a timetable that will have the replacements for the Xbox 360 and PS3 on the shelves in 2014. 

Three years! Dang, that's a long time, especially considering the 360 was released in 2005! A nine-year generation for the Xbox console? That's more than twice the amount of time from the original Xbox to the 360. 

With Nintendo reportedly debuting the successor to their Wii at E3 this year, makes you wonder if Microsoft and Sony will get their heads out of the ground and speed it up a bit?

So my dear fellow gamers, what features are you looking for in a next-gen console? Personally, I'm hoping for some sort of upgraded motion-sensor, maybe a completely controller-less console?


  1. iv heard about the wii and the xbox vaguely. i havent heard of anything for the ps3.
    all i want in a next gen console would be better graphics, which would have to make it more powerful. xbox all the way

  2. Makes you wonder what games consoles will be like in 10 years time.

  3. I just hope they don't delay the new Zelda for this Project Cafe thing.
