Well the time has come. A moment that will define the next five or more years of gaming. The Wii U has been out for a year, The PS4 is the new hot item, and the Xbox One is just around the corner. Every ad and promotion for any electronic related item is all about the next-gen gaming. Many people pre-ordered their new device. Some didn't act fast enough or they just like waiting in line for hours. With all of the fuss and hype for every new item it can be hard for people to make a decision on their preferred way to game. Personally I don't care. I feel the same way about voting and politics. I'm exited to see the new contenders and their respective features but at the same time I am a rather hesitant person. The opinion I have is that history repeats itself. Take a trip down memory lane for the last console release. Remember all the hype for the "leaf blower loud" Xbox 360 and the PS3 fat. Outrageously priced and not bug fixed. After what happened last time do we really want to buy the new system immediately and risk another red ring scenario or the discussion of upgrades when the "streamlined" console comes out in three years. Look at all the potential risk we have for a bad release. Did "two-faced" Microsoft have enough time to implement the Xbox One's features correctly after completely changing everything after the frowned upon announcement. Or what about the fact that we didn't even get to see the PS4 until E3. Did the design have flaws or did they just not finish it in time? hopefully I'm wrong and the releases will go over smoothly. In the meantime I will be enjoying my old perfected consoles and save my 400 or 500 dollars for the improved second wave of the next-gen consoles. Don't get me wrong I'm just as exited for the new gaming experiences but I'm happy with the same consoles we have been enjoying for the past few years and their extensive libraries of games. Now that the Wii U is finally building a descent library of games it might make its way into my living room in the next year. So whatever your opinions are about next-gen have fun with your decision.
