One can't help but wonder what the next generation of gaming will bring. With the Wii U, PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS around, we already have a peek at what it has to offer. With news of the PlayStation 4, the Steambox and the next Microsoft console, there is still more to find out about what next-gen has to offer. With that being said, there is another side to all this. What if you don't really care what next-gen gaming has to offer?
As we get closer and closer to the point where the current generation of gaming will be no more (PS3/Xbox 360/Wii/PSP/DS) we are faced with a question. What next-gen console will we spend our money on? So far, for me personally, I can't really say I have given much thought to it. All this talk of online only games, going away from single player games, and with the PlayStation 4 not being able to transfer over PlayStation Store purchases, I can't say I'm too excited. This definitely isn't meant to speak for everyone but this might be what some are thinking at the moment.
Reasons will vary as to why someone is interested or not interested in the next-generation of gaming. Lots of questions also remain. How much will games be? How much will an extra controller be? Will the price of Xbox LIVE go up? What can we expect from the Kinect 2? Are any of these questions even valid? This article is presented to bring attention to a time in gaming that may just come before we all know it. It's possible that around the time of the holidays this year, we end up with new gaming systems under the Christmas tree or end up receiving them for Hanukkah. It's time to start thinking about a time that isn't too far away.
The main question is this, do you want in, or do you want out? Another thought that has been going around is if this next generation will be the last of console gaming. Is this really the end? So many questions and less and less time to think about it before the time is indeed upon us. Where do you stand?
