Next-Gen Consoles Solve No Problems?
Over at Aelon, Vermouth postulated that the next generation of consoles isn’t fixing any of the problems with the current generation. They’re just doing the same thing faster and fancier:
I recently saw an interview with Gabe Newell, in which he pointed out that none of the big products coming out, Revolution, Xbox 360, Vista and the PS3 are solving his problems. In fact he went on to tell us how the next gen consoles are really creating more problems for him. Thursday night, Nintendo unveiled the Revolution controller and I realized that as a gamer none of the next generation machines are really dealing with solving my problems with games.
