(comment talking about next gen consoles)
"The sacred PS4 will be the one to lead the AAA gaming industry to glory, most people are scared but I will tell you all be patient and dont be afraid because the PS4 will control this industry and steer it to the promise land where gaming will be safe for all eternity, next year is obviously going to be a big year with so much great games for the PS3 and then E3 2013 the earth will shake at the presence of the PS4.
Be patient fellow gamers and submit to the king PS4 to be saved."

After the PlayStation Network got the shit hacked out of it my faith in Sony was nonexistent. Granted the PS3 has better graphics and sound than the Xbox, but what the Xbox lacks in the video and audio department it makes up in it's online services, multiplayer, games and additional products such as the Kinect (It's not the best motion sensor device, but it's a start).
"You will never see a PlayStation get the red ring of death!". Guess what? I've never seen an Xbox get the red ring of death. I'm pretty sure everyone who has had the red ring of death was either unlucky or did't take care of their Xbox/do dumb shit with it. "PlayStation 3 has a Blue Ray player!". Congratulations, so does my laptop and if I was feeling like a "badass" I'd illegally download a Blue Ray movie and they're not that much better than a regular HD movie.
I'm a PC gamer first and foremost and in my opinion PC gaming is the King and always has been. The PS4 and the Xbox 720 can come and go, but my rig will still be standing.
Side Note: Every time I play online on someones PlayStation 3 I absolutely stomp everyone into the ground and it doesn't matter what game it is. Xbox has the best players by far and they fuck me up sideways.

But back to the point, the Playstation has the shittiest controller I've ever felt. I mean it's great that it's got better graphics and a Blu-Ray player and yadda yadda yadda things that I don't care much about. Good for Sony. But until they come out with a peripheral that allows me to plug an Xbox 360 controller, I'd never buy.

I'll agree with Greg on the PS controller sucking ass, that was actually my biggest reason for not getting a ps2 for the longest time because the controller just feels bad, more so if you have larger hands. Not comfortable for game play.
But now a 360 joystick on the PC? Hell yeah. Is it sad that i'm happy they made the xbox just so i could use its controller for the PC? probably but I'm not complaining. PC all the way.

I wont go into details now because it's too long but if you search on it, you should see the direction the industry is planning to move to. Making games cheaper to play etc is a big step and also potentially risky but only time will tell.

With these things being said, next gen is a cloudy issue for me. I don't think anything I can imagine is worth me paying another $300+ entry fee, expecially with the current techonology and updates that are allowed. I don't think the 360 or PS3 have maxed out in potential at all.
