I never really understood why anyone would care about any of the console manufacturers. I have no allegiance to any of them, whoever has the best hardware, games and pricing will get my money. This gen I have a 360, Wii and crappy pc. The previous gen I had PS2 and Xbox and before that N64 and before that Super Nintendo.

PS4 has impressed me so far, but I will wait to see what Microsoft has been working on. Actually I might consider just going PC only next gen as most games end up there anyways. Only thing keeping me wanting to play consoles are split-screen play and a few games that don't hit pc like NHL games.

Well I'm not a hardcore gamer and I've had a psx from the get go then a ps2 and now a ps3. So it sort of created that fanboyism. I mean if all goes well with this system I'll also get the ps vita which seems to be showing promise in good integration not to mention excellent ps+ usage.

Same. It's one of the main reason I am holding out atm. If they have a bundle similar to that, I'm buying it on day one.

Man I'm trying to talk my friends into buying a Ps4 . Obviously I'm gonna see what Xbox offers, but so far its Ps4 AINEC. I usually only game with like 2-4 friends anyhow so. Maybe ill get both, but I don't see any point to that except exclusives.

I had error E74 on my xbox 360. Does that mean the end of this console's life? I could let it repair by xbox service but i would have to pay more than 120 $.

If i would get a Xbox 360 slim, how could i transfer my game standings from my hard drive to the new xbox?

One of these: http://www.gamestop.com/xbox-360/acc...er-cable/78160 It works with both the older and new hard drives.

There's message boards where people are trading/loaning them for one time use if you don't want to pay (Microsoft used to send them for free years ago). Just make sure it's the newer model.

^ hate those Neogaf #'s... no digital download information means that it's not real information, especially right now in-between console generations.

That and its only one region. Hard to extrapolate it to mean anything.

US/NA is really the only region where any sort of accurate stats are available from, in addition to being the biggest region.

I'm going to ask this question here as I don't see the point of starting a new thread. I currently own a PS3 that I use pretty much for streaming and watching DVDs. I very seldom use it for games. (In the last year+ I have only played Skyrim)

My question is how long after the launch of the PS4 will Sony stop making/supporting new streaming apps (Netflix, GCL etc.) for the ps3?

Doesn't Japan spend more money and have more gamers?

DO NOT UPDATE YOUR PS3!!!
A lot of people are reporting that the latest update is "bricking" their system.
