Depends on what DRM they stick on them if it's as bad as I've heard rumoured (locking disks to the console and having to be constantly online) I'll just get myself the best gaming PC I can instead.

Also bit worried about the supposed leaked specs of the PS4 which seem to suggest it's less capable than the PS3.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

In what way?? PS4 is supposed to be ten times more powerful than PS3

I'm sure the days of second hand game sales and exchanges with retailers will be well and truly over. That just won't be an option anymore

From what I've read the PS3 has eight 3.2ghz cpus or SPE's in the cell core. while AMD's is going to be eight 1.6 ghz cpus. Half the speed of the cell in the PS3.

Now truthfully I do think the new one will probably blow away the old one but on paper it doesn't seem much and doesn't excite me.

Consoles will always be underpowered in comparison to PCs anyway.

Not fair to compare because consoles cost a fraction of a decent gaming pc.

I don't think there will be any worries in both new consoles that they won't blow their predecessors.

You have a fair point there.

I've never been a fan of console gaming really, subpar framerates and graphics plus control issues for first person shooters.

No RTS games, either, or at least decent controls for one.

A quality gaming pc is where it's at but for the rest of us on a budget consoles certainly do their job..... but gaming is changing and on the move gaming will eventually take over.

Honestly just take a take a family desktop PC that you likely have at home, make sure you have a halfway decent CPU and lotsa ram (which is cheap) then just buy a nice video card and you're done. No need to spend $800+ on a gaming only PC, just use the family/home one slighly souped up.

I'm divorced living on my own so all I have/need is a laptop.

Plus my iPad 3 which I much prefer to use anyway for the net and just about everything else as well.

if Apple can come up with a vastly improved iPad before the next gen consoles hit then my money could well go in that direction but at the moment I'm more than happy with my iPad as it is now, so Microsoft and Sony might well be in with a shout with the Xbox probably in with the bigger shout as I have been pleased with my 360
