Tomorrow is the big day! So what are you hoping to see? Personally I can't wait to see the explanations Microsoft has for the major clusterfucks they've announced over the past few weeks.

Microsoft does have some serious damage control to get done. We'll see. Sony better offer something of substance at this point because I haven't really made up my mind. It's likely I won't get any of the new consoles, but that will depend on what they offer.

I'm thinking the same thing. I think I'll give them a year or two before I move up. Really and truly this isn't the GIANT leap forward in graphics that it was with the Xbox to Xbox 360 or PS2 to PS3. Plus there are still plenty of games out there I haven't played yet for both the PS3 and 360.

Yeah. The last generation consoles were also very adaptable to upgrades which gave them much more longevity than any console before. I think it would have been much wiser to wait a little longer to bring out new consoles, maybe release them by 2016 but I understand that companies are worried about other competitors putting out a new product that would make their console seem obsolete. They're not willing to take that chance, but they'll be walking a tightrope to try to really sell the next generation as something necessary. The last generation's big leap was not just graphics but better online networking.

I JUST finished watching the Microsoft reveal. Plenty of good looking games. I really liked Dead Rising 3. It looks like they may have fixed all of things wrong with the previous two games. But other than that I really didn't see anything that blew me away. I LOVE the two free games a month deal they're starting, though I'll have to clear some space off my hard drive.LOL OH and Metal Gear looks fucking awesome!

Microsoft showed a great amount of good games, however Sony kicked them in the balls when they revealed there would be no used game restrictions. Cant wait to see Nintendos show tomorrow.

Looks like it's going to be the PS4 for me, just for METAL GEAR SOLD V.




OH... That burns.

Man it was downright embarrassing how badly Microsoft got its ass kicked this year.  How can they be THIS cocky?  Did they learn nothing from what happened to Sony with the PS3?  They were in the exact same boat.  The PS2 was one of the best systems ever made and they wrongly assumed that fan base would automatically carry over to the PS3.  They were dead wrong.  Now Microsoft is doing the same thing only a thousand times worse.

And Sony doesn't seem to be doing anything too different, and that's actually considered a virtue on their part compared to what Microsoft is doing! It's kind of nice that Sony is being a bit less top heavy like last time. The PS3 was $599, which is just utterly insane so seeing the PS4 at $399 alone is enough to show that they're aware they can only go so far.
