Generation Eight Coming in 2-3 Years?
That’s what Capcom’s David Reeves speculated in the general direction of GI.biz, anyway. And it is speculation, as he said nobody has told him nothin’ about nothin’ regarding new console development. Mister Reeves says this new crap (Move and Kinect and 3D) is just a way of making this generation last just weeeeeeeeeeeeee bit longer. He described these things as such: “Anything they can add to revive and pique interest in the games until we have another clash of the titans in two years time.” Mister Reeves talks about more stuff on more topics at GI.
So, speaking as someone who never had more than one console at a time until I went waist-deep in debt to buy a bunch of stuff this generation, I sorta don’t want to move on. Of course, we aren’t now, so maybe I’ll be OK with the idea once I’ve run out of current-generation hardware to buy. Which will basically be once I get the Move and Kinect. Hmm.
If you’re wondering why I keep using that picture, well, it’s because it’s awesome. But I’m thinking of switching to a new go-to 3D picture, one which features a guy eating a whole pizza in a full movie theater while watching Avatar. Yay or nay?
