Weekend Quencher — So Close I Can Taste It Edition

Weekend Quencher — So Close I Can Taste It Edition

If you didn’t get the Patrick from SpongeBob reference, I apologize. It just seemed appropriate; we’re pretty close to a brand new generation of gaming, which means innovation and fresh air. It means we’re getting lots of new stuff to play and experience, and that gaming is stronger than ever.

The eightth generation of consoles begs me to ask this question: who could have thought, 40 years ago, that we’d get eight generations of gaming-specific hardware and that the industry would be the giant it is today? It’s not easy to outsell blockbuster movies and music, yet each year, games like Grand Theft Auto V and Call of Duty manage to break any and all records and make it seem like a walk in the park.

That’s what I’m hoping for when the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 drop. An increase in quality, an increase in sales, and the relevance of gaming in the world to remain as it is, if not grow bigger.

What are your plans for the next-gen anyway? This week was rich in news, and surely something must have drawn your attention. Maybe claims that one next-gen version of Battlefield 4 will be “definitely better” than the other? Or Microsoft’s stance with the Xbox One’s price? Let’s hear you out in another Weekend Quencher!
