I still predict a video games crash on the horizon if the industry continues on it's current path.

    The Wii U isn't innocent though, it suffers heavily from over-recycled IP like any console.
    Both the PS4 and XB1 are well ahead of old gen sales. There's even more people willing to pay for new hardware for their gaming. Some just want a box for gaming. In what would be considered PC FPS games like BF4 are played more on current gen consoles (without taking into account last gen) than PC and they've only been out 6 months. Gaming is healthier than ever.


    Starfox, Zelda, that paint shooter and a host of Mario games is making me want to get a WiiU.

    There's "Hyrule Warriors" and the open-world one... unless that's the same game.

    I Use my Wii U all the time for playing games or watching Netflix.
    Right now I'm addicted to Mario Kart 8, Wonderful 101 and Pikmin 3!!

    They are different HW releases this year. Personally more interested in the open world zelda, but 2015.

    I want them both... NOW.

    Though I'd need to get a Wii U... and find space for it.

    I still got 360/PS4 games I want to play.

    I couldn't get on with Wonderful 101 as it confused me (so would probably hate Pikmin too) but Mario Kart 8 is amazing. Thinking of getting MH3U for the free game with Mario Kart.

    It's funny before the PS4/XB1 launch people were complaining of a dying console market, low sales, empending crash. Just goes to show after 8 years the market was saturated and desperate for change. That said, I'm not sure the PS3 has reached the ceiling of what it's capable of yet (although GTA:V, TLoU, and WatchDogs are probably pushing it close).

    I think Ninty's E3 does show it's more about the games than the hardware. People will go were the games are...
