Xbox 720?? PS4......

Are you excited?
Do we need these new consoles?
Will you be getting one?
What would you like to see from these consoles?
How much would you pay for one?
if you already have a 360 or PS3 will you simply buy its successor or buy the best new console (if the prices are similar)

Or is ios gaming now more than enough to meet your gaming needs and enjoyment?

I actually thought about this the other day and I've come to the point in my life where I can't justify buying a new game console. I just don't play games enough. Any gaming I do has to be in short sessions (on the toilet) or in bed while my wife is sleeping so really only my ipad, iPhone or a handheld console.

Got lost on my way to GameFAQs...

I gave my Xbox away a year ago and my PS3 is gathering dust. This is pretty much a result of getting my iPad and realizing I really enjoy more casual games. I will follow the new consoles with interest, but buying one will take something really special. The only thing that has me interested in gaming outside of mobile is the Oculus Rift.

I have been a dedicated gamer for the best part of thirty years from the Acorn Electron to my iPad 3. This is the first time I am not using a dedicated console in years and my Xbox is packed away. I will be very interested in the new consoles but as already said, they are going to have to be something very special for me to buy one. The quality of some of the stuff we can now play on our iOS devices is superb with prices to match. Saying that once next generation console demos start appearing to get my juices flowing it will be very interesting to see how I react and can I be seduced all over again? lol

Really can't wait for the Xbox 720. About time for an upgrade worthy.

And ps4, I mean it's a bit redundant for online gaming. I mean 2 weeks in everyone has hacked it to kingdom kong and it's boring.

Not me, like my new ipad alot. Would much rather save my money for an ipad 5 or 6, than buy a console. Portability is king. I do wish Apple would come out with a wireless joystick soon so I can play my ipad as a console via hdmi even more. I don't think I will ever again buy a console, my ipad will always be my favorite console.

Both consoles are slated for late 2013 releases so they must make an appearance fairly soon
