PB & Jason Issue 129: [Citation Needed]

Listen to a podcast where generalizations are made about the people who pre-order new video game consoles.

In this issue of PB & Jason, we have Pokémon X & Y, a weirdly-worded Joystiq story, potentially low Xbox One and PS4 console pre-order sales, and an inferred reason for the delay of Ubisoft's Watch_Dogs.

My biggest reservation are the potential price hikes of a new generation. Reputedly games are going to be more expensive (The 59.99 price point will probably go up) and as someone who has to save money a few months before being able to afford a console,I prefer to wait for them to have larger game libraries and a slight decrease of their initial price point.

So far not many of the "next gen titles" are wowing me "more" than the current titles. That's another reason for my hesitation I guess.

If you buy into PlayStation Plus, that's an option. Not a great one, because you lose everything if you unsubscribe, but it's still an option.

I think Sony and Microsoft both know the "Wow" isn't going to be in the graphics. They want the infrastructure, the social engineering, and their back-end stuff to sell the consoles. Except you can't advertise those features. You can't show those off, I know. I suspect Microsoft and Sony expect these benefits to grow apparent to the end-user.

I have a few questions about that: Will the end-user be aware of these features? How long will it take?

I do expect to be impressed with the new infrastructures! (Online features as well as improved ways we communicate) If I wasn't so anti-social, it would be reason for excitement,Jas. Tongue Out
