Games: Sony Confirms PSPGo Gone; New Consoles Expected 2014 116

itwbennett writes "Sony on Wednesday confirmed rumors that it is ending production of the PSPGo, the 'slider' version of their handheld gaming system that was introduced back in 2009. Meanwhile, Kotaku posted an article saying that Microsoft and Sony probably won't be launching their next generation consoles until 2014. Whether the Kotaku prognostications are true or not, 'it's fun to think about what a console will have inside it in 3 years,' writes blogger Peter Smith. 'Will it support physical media? Probably. That seems too early for a pure digital delivery system. But I bet they'll have either terabyte hard drives or some kind of cloud storage for digital media.'"

    Because you're really going to own 3+ smartphones, and have your choice of console constrained by your wireless carrier. Right.

    HA HA HA HA HA...you're serious? HA HA HA HA HA HA...Thanks, I needed that. in case you didn't know they tried that in the past with I believe either Quake or Q3 Arena. What happened? Those with those damned irritating console controllers got their asses handed to them on a platter by mouse users.

    The simple fact is they will NEVER be able to make a thumbstick that works at the accuracy of even a 800 DPI plain jane mouse, much less the average $50 gamer mouse. Controllers are fine for stuff like Madden NOT for FPS and RTS, so if you had your wish they would either have to cripple play for the PC users (I've already seen something similar where games try to make up for latency and it suckth big time) or you'd get stomped so bad you'd feel like grandma playing football against the Broncos.

    As for TFA, as a PC gamer I say take your time consoles. I like the fact that my HD4850 which cost a whole $60 plays most games on high or close to it, I like that I can build sub $500 boxes that are great for gaming, I LIKE not having to blow a couple of hundred every year just to keep a decent framerate like in the 90s. So no hurry, take your time.

    Hopefully by the time whatever they've got cooking rolls out equipping a PC to beat it will cost less than $100 for the GPU and I can enjoy my nice graphics without spending a mint. So thanks consoles, keep it up!

Machines that have broken down will work perfectly when the repairman arrives.
