Why I Am Not Excited About The Next Generation Of Game Consoles

Wii U, XBox One, PS4A new wave of home consoles is upon us. Last year, Nintendo’s successor to the Wii launched in the form of the Wii U. Tomorrow, the Playstation 4 is launching. Next week, the XBox One, this is the third console in the XBox lineup not to be confused with the original XBox, is launching. Yet, I find myself not at all excited about these new consoles.

Despite the best efforts of Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo to wow me with the new shiny, I simply can’t muster up any real excitement for these consoles. Yes, the Wii U is the first high definition console from Nintendo. Yes the PS4 and the XBox One are more powerful and can display bigger and brighter explosions on my TV set. Yet, there is something that they lack. Something that they just can’t compete with.


Nintendo Drops Major News Bomb: Wii U Price Cut And 2DS

Nintendo 2DSNintendo took the world by storm today with a pair of announcements. First, they are dropping the price of the Wii U Deluxe model from $350 to $300. This news also means that the Wii U Basic model will be discontinued. Personally, I had not expected a price drop for the Wii U until next year. But it does make good business sense that it is happening now with several high profile game releases coming this fall. The Price cut will go in effect on September 20th.

The second major news story to break, and the one that is far more interesting, is the announcement of the 2DS. This new console is basically a 3DS without the 3d screen or the hinge. It is completely compatible with all 3DS and DS games, it just won’t display the 3D effect. It will also come in at the far cheaper price of $130. This model will be released on October 12th.
