The next gen is here and 8 or 9 years on and older we are still buzzed for it and defending and mocking our choices of last gen to the same extent.
I got bored with the wars this gen having eventually gotten both and enjoying them but now the new gen is finally here I am pumped again and cannot wait to see who does what and what will the launch day bring.
I liked Sony.s conference and grimaced at the MS one yet I am not convinced MS blew it just yet.
See my thread. http://www.vg247.com/forum/topic.php?id=10385&page=1#post-50021
Last gen we had the 360 coming on stream against the mighty PS brand and they were the underdogs to say the least.
How I remember been told over and over that at 24 mill it was more or less done yet it went on and on and now both have more or less equal fan-bases.
So we start this one on a level playing field with neither having an advantage on the other.
Loyalties will come in to it and the blood will be boiling over the graphics and game play but neither or will be as certain as to what the gamer will choose.
MS will be looking at you in bed with there all time on kinnect.
Sony will be MOVEing in to your kitchen with eye toy.
Ninty will be just ninty.(sorry ninty fans but I just do not get the wii or wiiu).
Amd we the gamers will be just getting greyer and angrier yet we will not miss a post on our fav gaming sites.
The normal world will watch the beeb or rte or nbc but we will be embroiled in our little world.
And then in about 3 years we will own both just to convince ourselves that we were right all along about our first choice.
Not looking at anyone in particular. ;).
How much things change but stay the same.
Anyway has the launches rekindled anyone elses interest as much as me?
