What is ya'll's thoughts on the rumors of new Xbox ones and Ps4's coming out within the year? Personally I wouldn't take much issue with the idea if the consoles were modular but from what I've read this will require purchasing totally new hardware. I'm curious how this will affect the new software that hits these consoles.

I definitely won't be buying a new PS4, might get the new Xbox version because I don't HAVE an Xbone yet but even then that's asking a lot haha.
I'm curious to see what actually happens but it does seem a bit ridiculous.

I've been biding my time on a PS4 simply to see what they are going to announce. I've been wanting one since so many JRPGS are coming this fall and beyond.

In terms of the PS4 software, I read somewhere (don't have the source) that Sony would require that software had to run on the original and the new and that even with the visual upgrades, the software for the upgraded console had to perform as well or better than the original.

Also, I forgot to mention that Sony said that any multiplayer could not be split up between versions. It had to remain one experience.

I mean... working at Gamestop, I know for a fact there were like 20 versions of the PS3 and several also of the 360. It'd be really strange to me if they made them so different as to consider them new consoles, or had exclusive titles.

From what I understand it would just be like the New 3DS except for consoles, right? How well is that doing?

I have no idea. I mean we got new 3dses, but at the same time it was my first upgrade since 3ds launch day.

You can also buy 4 N3DS for the price of 2 consoles.

Price point and upgrade functionality justifies up buckling down and buying a new version of a console.
We'll see if that's the case with the ps4.5 but I highly doubt it.
