Next-Gen talks already?
While most of us are still pondering how we’ll be able to afford all three next-gen consoles, talks about future generation consoles are already brewing among analysts.
It seems that software and chip designers are already getting ready to put the next-gen console’s capabilities to shame by improving the convergence of multimedia capabilities on future consoles. Comparing to where we are so far since the Atari 2600, we definitely have come a long way.
Let’s be honest, we can all be excited about what’s coming out next. Console manufacturers can slap whatever the heck they want on their systems. They might put in a DVR on the next Playstation or even a microwave oven in Xbox 720 for the consumer’s convenience. The bottom line is it’s just going to cost us consumers more. Convenience has a very high price tag, but that’s a philosophy we won’t really delve into.
TheFeed hopes that the Nintendo Wii will draw a new archetype for upcoming systems to follow. Not that we do prefer it over Sony’s and Microsoft’s system, but we feel it’s not always necessary to cram capabilities into one package. We just want to play our games and experience them in a different way. Imagine a system that is capable of producing sexy graphics such as the PS3/360 and having the freestyle playability of the Wii. Now that’s a high-quality gaming experience.
