Games "So, to summarise this buyer's guide to next gen consoles: don't." Yahtzee, as usual, nails it. I particularly like the apt description of how you used to buy a console because it had the specific games you wanted, whereas now it feels like you're buying a console because it's holding the games you want hostage.

PS4 doesn't seem so bad, yet

IMHO the PS4 preview video where they interview the console designers and game developers makes it seem like Sony actually has a serious clue about what consumers want in a game console this time around. Social gaming is take it or leave it perhaps, but they are promising to significantly improve the user experience overall as well as cater to indie developers, plus the price will be reasonable at launch, all of which promise to make this a great console. As long as they manage to avoid the DRM issues that MS is dealing with, which really isn't hard to do if they just keep things as they were on the PS3...
