Reader Discussion – What’s Your Most Anticipated Next Gen Feature?
We’re now a mere 64 days away from the launch of the next generation in gaming (Sorry Nintendo). We know the hardware specs, well kind of, SOME people seem to have been bloating them as of late. Regardless, these machines are head and shoulders more powerful with some great built in features for us to fondle. Not to mention the fact that both consoles are sporting great new controllers and decent launch software.
So, we wanted to know what single aspect will change the game for you next gen. If you’re a graphics whore, get it out in the open, Mark Rein did! If you’re looking forward to the deep social integration, tell us about it. Or if the only thing you really want are some new IP’s to get excited for, name em’. There’s plenty to drool over when it comes to the launch of the next generation PlayStation and Xbox.
Sony has obviously known what they wanted the PlayStation 4 to be for some time now. The Xbox One is a boyfriend chameleon of sorts, dealing with a several month long identity crisis, but plenty people are thankful for the Microsoft flip flop. There’s a lot of information to sift through, but there has to be one thing that really stands out. Tell us your opinion!
I’ll start. My favorite upcoming change will be more indie support on consoles. One of the things I’ve been missing out on for the last decade are the experiences you can only find on the PC. Most higher budget software makes it’s way across the board, but indie’s tend to gravitate to the PC due to the fact that there’s no need for a publisher. Next gen that all changes. Both Sony and Microsoft have been courting the indie development crowd vying for their support. Both are offering significantly easier access to their platforms, and that means the game selection will be larger than ever on console.
Your turn, this is your chance (outside of a forum thread) to have a great next gen conversation.
