That Xbox reveal was underwhelming to say the least. Used game fee? Forget about it. They're going to see that's a mistake. In fact, during the reveal, Nintendo and Sony saw an increase in their stock value, while Microsoft took something of a fall on theirs.
No backward compatibility, the TV supposedly requires a separate device to do it, and you have to pay a fee to authorize use of a game on another console. If that isn't digging a grave for a console, I don't know what is. I see no reason to not get a PS4 instead, other than the fact that it's not backward compatible either, and I still want a PS3 for a lot of JRPGs I've missed out on. Maybe even the Wii U will go places in a year, and it'll find success, like the 3DS did (I got my 3DS a few months ago, and I absolutely love it).
EDIT: So, that's where all the applause was coming from:
EDIT AGAIN: From a Kaz Hirai parody Twitter account, proof that the PS4 is better.
What are your thoughts on this upcoming generation?
