You really can't predict what sort of trends will emerge and how long they will stay popular in any form of media really.
Steam has a console of sorts coming out this year called Steam Machines, but not too many people seem to care much about that.
I love the choices of things, Though i have no interest in the Xbox
one, In time im sure i will have one lol. I have really been enjoying
the Ps4, and am really thinking about getting a Wii U as some of the
games on that system I would really like to play and add to my
collection. As I said the Xbox one just doesnt interest me at the
moment, thats not to say its a bad system, as im sure later on
down the line im sure i'll have one, but after playing on a friend
of mines X1, im just really not interested, but its still great that
there is these 3 system with lots of different gaming choices to
I'm with you. Not many games this new generation interest me. Online all the time is a turn-off. Downloads instead of physical media...ugh...
Thankfully, I've got 35 years of gaming goodness stockpiled for the cold, dark future.
I'll buy consoles as long as there are physical games. After that, I'll just buy PC games and play my old consoles. I mean, once consoles are just download machines, why in the world would I want one? So I can buy proprietary hard drives and controllers and have tangles of wires coming out of the TV? I'll never stop gaming, but I will stop buying PCs with a smaller selection, smaller hardrives, higher prices, and walled gardens if I don't get anything for it.
