    Raw power. I have no desire to be able to use services/apps on a console that I ALREADY have elsewhere. If this is the route they take, just seals the deal for me.

    The new generation needs to focus on making a more powerful system instead of trying to incorporate apps and...."smart glass". The graphics card on a good gaming PC is 20-25 times more powerful than the current generation of consoles. Developers want that kind of power on the console, but instead, the devs are getting emails telling them that they can use their tablet to control their phone which can control their 360, so that they can watch Hulu while waving their hands around at a sensor.

    The industry is slowing.

    Ehhh more powerful graphics do not equal better games.

    Graphics will plateau eventually. High end PCs are already capable of near photo realism.

    Being able to use hulu and netflix and use SERVICES PEOPLE ALREADY HAVE on different devices does not equal better games. It equals FLUFF.

    High end pc's are capable of amazingly realistic graphics. Consoles are nowhere even near that ballpark. So, you are saying since PC's can run graphic intense games, then consoles shouldn't hope to do the same in some respect?

    Walmart sells video games, so why does gamestop even exist!?

    Then build a PC.

    I'm a casual gamer. I have just as much fun playing Wii as I do anything else

    Uh, I have a gaming PC. So because I own a PC, consoles shouldn't need to have good graphics?


    Gotcha. Seems M$ agrees with you as well.

    I want more of an entertainment service.

    Honestly I use my Xbox/PS3 more for watching movies, Netflix, music, HBO GO, ESPN 3 ect.

    I'm a gadget nerd.

    I play games every now and then.

    I have all the media crap in a small box next to my TV. What do I want next gen? for creativity to return. This it's been bogged down with gritty shooter crap. I want color and fun. Adventure. Great stories. Shenmue III. NOt systems that drive development costs to the point where creativity is gone.
