Aside from Nintendo's Wii U, what do you think will be the next generation of consoles, what features and timeline do you think they will release in?
I honestly don't know why everyone is pushing to have them launch in Fall next year? That seems really soon, i always thought the next generation would launch in Summer/Fall 2014. Everyone from the press is saying how we need the next generation but do we really need it next year? Games like The Last of Us & Halo 4 and multiplatform games like Watchdogs, Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider & Grand Theft Auto V illustrate that we still have a tonne of great games coming.
This is my prediction please feel free to share your thoughts and your own personal opinions.
Playstation 4: Will launch in 2014, games will be sold on Blu-Ray discs and on Playstation Network on the same day. There is no way that Sony would ditch physical copies next generation and it will play USED games without a doubt. Playstation 4's interface will be completely rebooted and support the often asked for Cross-Game Voice chat and a much more user friendly Playstation Network Service. It will be backwards compatible with PS3 Games and (possibly) PS3 controllers & peripherals.
XBOX 3: I believe this will launch in 2014 as well probably with Halo 5 running on the next generation graphics, I think Kinect will be bundled with the system but it will be a much more accurate Kinect, I believe their controllers will be slightly altered and include internal batteries that can be recharged. Revamped Xbox Live obviously and similarly to Sony i believe games will be on physical discs and download on the same day.
Wii U: I know everyone thought Nintendo had a bad showing at E3 this year, and although I agree, did anyone really expect to see Smash Bros. & Zelda? I mean come on Team Sora JUST finished Kid Icarus and last year they had two Zelda Games. Next year at E3 is when Nintendo really needs to show their cards, not this year but next year cause Sony & Microsoft will be showing off their new systems to launch in 2014 (in my prediction but possibly 2013) So I believe next year they will show us a glimpse of Super Smash Bros. 4, Mario Kart 8, Retro Studios New Title (Metroid Prime 4), they could show a small glimpse of Zelda for WiiU but i don't think they will so soon, lastly i think they will pull some of their older franchises such as F-Zero & Star Fox next year aswell. With that kind of showing I believe Wii U will be in a great position next year.
So what are your predictions on the Next Gen Consoles, are you ready for them in 2013 or 2014? What features do you think they will have and do you think the Wii U will be able to compete?

|Your predictions on Xbox 3 and Playstation 4 seem about accurate. Especially the digital+boxed games thing.|
