You guys bring great points to the table. RANT definitely need to continue to revisit these topics as consoles roll off the assembly line. As a huge video game nerd, I guess I feel a little marginalized by the last generation of consoles, and I fear that this generation might be worse. As Kyle noted, better system specs does not a better experience make. I felt like for the most part the last gen was marred by pretty-looking $60 dollar games with 4 hour campaigns and mediocre multiplayer. I'll probably sit out the first few months of this generation, considering I'm really content with my new PC. I think in order to entice hardcore PC gamers, Microsoft and Sony are going to need to ramp up the Heavy Rain / Gears / Ni No Kuni / MGS quality exclusives and release them rapid-fire like Nintendo. I'm not going to pay +$550 for five good exclusives in a generation. It would also really help to embrace the modding community. I still play games that are almost 5 years old with regularity thanks to vibrant mod communities. As it turns out, nerds will do a lot of work for you for free AND produce better results than the big developers. Sony and Micro have a great opportunity to unlock the potential of mods with their hardware, but I fear they may be too dependent on DLC greedy studios and game engine recyclers like EA to get comfortable with modders.
