    Can we please all stop saying "next-gen"?

    We are now in current-gen.

    That is all.

    I said this the day they were released. Bloody hate the 'next-gen' moniker

    Last-gen = PS3/360
    Current-gen = PS4/XBO
    Next-gen = PS5/XBT

    Yeah I say new gen should be the way to class it at the minute, current gen just makes it sound old considering they have not been out for a year yet!

    Ok. I'll reply to every one of your posts and say something about next-gen. Just to annoy you.

    Watchdogs is SO next-gen man, like omg!

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    The whole next-gen thing is overrated imo.. PC's always ahead of consoles.. Consoles can NOW do what PC could do a couple o years ago, so I don't see the whole 'next-gen' thing. I just call them consoles and newer consoles. The whole 'gen' thing is not to my interests :<

    Saying "next gen" is really just a habit for most. All the time building up to launch and calling it "next gen" carries over for quite a while, but it fades. Doesn't matter. Folks know what is meant.

    I'm going to keep calling it "next-gen" until I get one. Then it's "current gen."

    I refer to it as current gen. Only time I really see any body using it is when describing graphics. Such as, "doesn't really look next gen."

    What he said.
    For people who still only own ps3/360, technically ps3/360 is 'current gen' for them.

    I refer to it as current gen. I would view new-gen as being perfectly acceptable myself. That said, we all certainly understand what is being said, so it's not the biggest deal I suppose. It'll fade out within a year most likely, with even last gen console owners referring to the PS4/XBox One as current gen most likely. After all, the current/next gen terminology isn't a personal based thing as we use it in game media, but an overall description of the industry.

    Yeah this happens every new generation. It's like that new car smell. It wears off eventually.

    Personally, I like the new car smell. I'd be fine with a car always smelling like new. Books too. In fact, books even more so. But, sticking to the car example, I'd wager it's a bit different. As I have already established, I like the new car smell. The terminology use though is certainly something I prefer to be $#@!genized (we get it now, but if it continues too long then things get weird, lol). In all seriousness though, yeah, it's just a phase that occurs every new generation.

    Thank you.

    Besides, what gamer in their right mind who has been gaming for years (perhaps even several decades) would think of last-gen consoles being Dreamcast, PlayStation2, GameCube and the first Xbox ?
    The first of those having launched in Japan on November 27th, 1998.

    Those 4 consoles were two generations ago (aka last-last gen).

    I stopped calling PS4 next gen, at least once it was released in Japan in February.

    As of right now, NEXT GEN game consoles have to mean
    -whatever Nintendo's next home console is (maybe, if it's not hugely underpowered) in 2016 / 2017
    -the successor to Xbox One ("Xbox 4") in 2018 / 2019
    -PS5 in 2018 / 2019

    Considering most ppl still use the 360 and PS3 it's still "next gen" for lots of ppl.

    PC is always more powerful but devs were not making games years ago on PC that are being done to the quality found on todays consoles. Games like Infamous SS, DriveClub and The Order are far better than what PC has ever put out.

    It will eventually catchup and overtake though, no doubt but for now PC could be considered a generation behind in terms of game output.

    I'm on my phone so can't be bothered to traverse the internet... But really?

    When you talk about being better what are you looking at exactly? Resolution, frame rate or other effects that have been there since DX11 launched in 2010?

    i somewhat agree with him, i don't think PC is a generation behind but it's definitely behind in some of the games PS4 has put out. do understand these are exclusives and take advantage of the closed box system. bringing up a multiplat game to prove your point would be moot.

    SS, Order and now DriveClub all look better than anything PC has put out yet, in those specific genres. e.g. Project Cars does not look better than Drive Club.

    and yes, PC is sort of like a port heaven right now. it doesn't get used much. e.g. BF4 remake maps should've looked like that on PC 3 years ago but if PS4 had BF3, it might've looked like that already. because they usually design games around consoles, not PC.

    Can we please all stop saying "next-gen"?

    You just said comparing multiplat titles would be moot yet compared Driveclub to a multiplatform game?

    What features does the PS4 do which the PC can't do. What puts it a generation ahead?

    Your BF3 comparison makes no sense as BF3 and 4 look pretty much identical on PC
