Next Gen Consoles/Games
2013 is the year of Next Gen consoles, what with the Wii U coming out late last year, and the PlayStation4 announced in February. Though Microsoft hasn’t officially confirmed the release of an Xbox720, it is widely believed that it will be announced in the Spring or Summer. Along with these new systems, comes a new era of graphics and complexities in Video games. Also included in this Next Gen revolution are new games to go on these platforms. The Sony event introduced many, such as and Watch Dogs, Assassins Creed 4 Black Flag is included, and we all know Activision will most likely release a kick-ass Call of Duty game (Rumored to possibly be Modern Warfare 4).
Though the Wii U isn’t considered “Next Gen,” it is a significant leap from the low end Wii which was described by many as the butt-crack of gaming. The Wii’s graphics were generally worse than those of the old PS2. Though I haven’t wittnessed live, I’ve seen Wii U gameplay and it is equal to or just under the performance of the Xbox360 or PS3. The Wii U may be a good system for the low caliber gamer,but for a medium like me, The Next Gen from Xbox and PlayStation will be my first choice. The question is, which games should I get?
I am a fan of Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed series, and definitely plan on pre-ordering ACIV. Along with that, Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs looks like y kind of game, so that’s in my shopping cart. But the thing is, I haven’t decided on getting the PS4 or not. Historically speaking, when Sony releases a PlayStation, a new, smaller version is released, generally better than the original. If I buy the PS4, I probably won’t get the PS4 Slim which is utterly certain to follow the next year. Decisions, decisions…
What do you all think? What will be the best Next Gen console? Which games will you buy?
I’m anxious for opinions!
