Anyone think we will have another video game industry crash like the one in 1983? While that may or may not happen, it's for certain the process of how we make, sell, and buy games is changing. Decide on how it will all change by voting with your money. Me? I stick to games of the PS2 era on down. Believe the last games released for that were in 2011, and this rule I give myself includes all previous systems (xbox, SNES, Atari, etc.). Cheap, in abundance, and quality games. All I'll likely ever need for my entertainment purposes, so seeing all these next gen battles gives me a different perspective.

Well, I don't think there is going to be a complete industry crash because there are other platforms for gaming such as handheld devices and PCs, for instance. Back in 1983, the options were much more limited. If anything, the gaming console era may experience a stagnant period this "gen".

I don't understand how if one bad system is going to come out it means the end of console gaming.

because there are so many xbox fans that they were planning on buying the xbox 720 only to have their hopes and dreams get crushed with the announcement of the xbox 1. however a lot of the die hard xbox fans are flocking to the ps4. if anything, this could be the end of microsoft trying to make consoles

Ehhh, I doubt that - it's a good market for them, they've just managed to get severe tunnel vision. If anything, what needs to happen is that Microsoft needs to listen to the gamers (not just the ones with good to excellent internet access, either), or at the very least learn how to design a desirable console with a good price tag. Their response to those who can't get a reliable connection on a daily basis was not good PR on their part. They know that there will be people who will buy the XB1 (moreso out of sheer loyalty than anything, and because for some it may work out okay). But to the most part, the PS4 will cater to more gamers' needs.

A games industry crash is coming. It's just a matter of when, and what the business will do about it. If they do things well, the crash can happen gracefully. If they decide to take their money and run, it'll crash very hard. But gaming won't go away. It's much too big at this point.
Love, Peace, & Video Games

And Microsoft does a 180. Now the console suddenly seems more viable.

Despite the DRM change, still not buying it. Its the price. If they make it kinect optional then that will shave off the $100 and be on playing field with the PS4....which I preordered already after the sony press conference.

Yeah, pretty much the difference between each is the eye interface..optional with the PS4, mandatory to the Xbox. I can understand though as a number of features built-in are interwoven with the Kinect.

You know how you have a dirty apartment, and cleaning up a single room doesn't mean the whole apartment is clean? Sort of like this. Not to diss Microsoft for making good choices, but I worry that people may overlook other issues due to the 180 that occurred.

I'm still staying with my decision to go PS4 and WiiU, but I do commend Microsoft for changing their minds on DRM. I know many are "Oh they're just going back on their words" if they stuck with it, they would have lost. Now they have a fighting chance. Sony has better exclusives IMO
