Xbox One or Playstation 4? I Choose...

Neither. Well, for the time being at least.

I, like many others, was really looking forward to this years E3. Finally we would be able to see some next-gen games in action, after years of being in development. And for the most part, they didn't disappoint. My problem was there was no next-gen that made me say "I must play this!" No game that made me feel I need a Playstation 4 or Xbox One on day one. Now that's not to say that there weren't any good games. Ryse: Son of Rome looked great, even if there was a bit too much QTE. Quantum Break looks interesting, even if our time with it was very brief. The Order: 1886 looks interesting, but with no gameplay shown and next to no info on what the game is about, it's hard for me to get invested.

The truth is, I feel like my Xbox 360 and PS3 still have a lot to offer for the next year or two. Titanfall was my favorite game of the show, but that title is also coming to the 360. Same goes for Destiny. Though granted, they may be watered down versions, specifically Titanfall, as the 360 development is being outsourced to a different studio. Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Batman: Arkham Origins, Watch Dogs, Battlefield 4, CoD: Ghosts, Metal Gear Solid V; all coming to current gen consoles. And of course, you can't forget the granddaddy of them all: Grand Theft Auto V. Not to mention that I'm also currently enjoying the hell out of The Last of Us.

Xbox One and Playstation 4 are no doubt going to be great consoles, and I eventually will have both at some point. But I can wait. Current gen still has plenty of gas left in the tank.
