People continue to overlook Watchdogs and Destiny. Why? Those two are going to be games that pave the way for these new consoles (at least on PS4, as far as Destiny is concerned). Also, almost everything on PS4 is native 1080p, and MOST of the games pushed out on X1 are 900p, at best (a lot of 720p). Doesn't SEEM like a big deal to some, but when comparing the new system to the old, X1 is a waste of money. Titanfall, their premiere title, runs at 792p. PS4 has one title so far that isn't 1080p native, and that is BF4 (900p on PS4, 720p on X1).  Why the difference? Stronger core capabilities for the PS4.

Tomb Raider and Second Son both look like fuging movies in gameplay. And Watchdogs may look even better than both of those (btw, X1 will run Watchdogs at 960p, while PS4 runs at 1080p). 

 

I agree that Watchdogs can be great, if it ever comes out....It seems like it keeps getting knocked around.

 

Regarding your resolution statements, I frankly feel like this is such a tired issue.  The number one issue is that game needs to be FUN.  That's what's really keeping us clutching our 360s and PS3s.  Sure, the game can "look" better, but is it more fun?  I know we, culturally, have an obsession with shiney stuff.  Like people buy a 4k TV for $900 (Seiki for a while at 50"), and they "think" everything looks better when it's not.  I'll say it, the infamous games are OK to me.  Kind of fun, but there are things I'd rather play.  Second Son looks amazing!  Killzone looks AMAZINGer!  But fundamentally, they are still the same games for the past.

 

TItanfall at least has something new and interesting with the parkour element and the giant mechs.  I have a bias though in that I love the idea of giant mechs!  I loved Pacific Rim for all it's silly.  I used to watch a crap ton of Gundam.  Voltron.  I drew the line at Power Rangers (I was too old when it came out).  I love me some giant robots, and Titanfall gives me the chance to step on people in a giant robot....  It could run a 480ix720 (....Standard Definition!!!!???  Sacrilege!) and I would play the heck out of it!  Tech specs are only important when the game isn't fun.  At least you have something to look at.

 

I did forget about Watchdogs.  So maybe that will push some consoles out for folks.  Destiny....Man, I love the idea, but I DO NOT want to pay another SUB...let me buy DLC that I OWN FOREVER (until they kill the game or the world ends...or something).  I'm just not in that part.  LOTRO spoiled me on being able to buy land masses, quests and stuff that's MINE.  I don't have to worry about my CC expiring and not being able to play until I put my new expatriation date in.  Please let me not have another SUB game.  I'll pay my $60, and I'll buy DLC, but no subs!  I'm just not wanting to invest $180 a year into a game that I might not be able to play for a couple of weeks due to work/life/ect...  I'm an adult now.  =( for gaming.

 

Wow, that was longer than I thought it would be when I started lol....

Watchdogs has been confirmed to be released on May 27 for at least a month now, at least.

Destiny has no subscription fee (no idea where you heard that). It's flat rate $60 for the disc, and then DLC after that. Also, as for the war between Sony and Microsoft....PS4 is getting exclusive content for Destiny. So, basically, the best version of this game will be on PS4.


Of course the new consoles aren't going to make the same games available for say, PS3 and PS4 more fun. It's the same companies and for now, the same games (generally) on both last gen and next gen. The look of the game, for me, can make it more enjoyable. It's easier for me to get immersed into a game's world if I feel like I'm actually there, visually. They're squeezing money out of last gen for what, another year, maybe 2? So, yeah, you can avoid buying the newer consoles for a while. If you don't mind missing out on the release of some of the titles, knock yourself out. But what's the difference in shooters from PS2 to PS3? What's the biggest difference between how sports titles are played? Games are always going to play the same. "Fun" is an entirely subjective term (as you pointed out by saying that Second Son doesn't seem that fun to you). So, it's not really fair to make an objective assessment with a subjective term. By all means, again, if you wanna hold out on the new consoles, cool. I don't really give a poo what you do. I'm jsut saying, there ARE reasons to get newer consoles (better specs, better titles like Destiny, etc).

Second Son was pretty, it was a little enjoyable, but it got a little monotonous and the story line had more holes than my dad's condom.

Giant Mechs aren't new in shooters whatsoever, but to each their own.

Sounds like the first two Infamous games.

Assassin's Creed Black Flag is pretty entertaining.  I only have five games right now....I really only play two of them, but I always go back to Black Flag whenever I get bored.

 

Side note: I have

 

Ghosts

TitanFall

Battlefield

Ryse (fun to play once, but it's probably going back to Gamestop soon)

Assassin's Creed: Black Flag

In case y'all missed it (or likely didn't care), the Xbox One will now sell sans Kinect for $400.  Same as PS4, but will it be a big deal?  Also, more apps are being freed up from XBL subscriptions.  Games with Gold and sales are coming to the Xbox One as well.
