Weekend Quencher 11/23/13 – Welcome To The Eighth Generation Of Gaming

Weekend Quencher 11/23/13 – Welcome To The Eighth Generation Of Gaming

It’s finally here. PS4 and Xbox One have launched (except in Europe, where PS4 goes on sale next Friday) and gamers around the world are now enthralled in next generation gaming. It’s the weekend, friends, and I feel like a child again!

I have a brand new PS4, by the way. And although I haven’t had time to play nothing much, I’m really excited about the console, and have been enjoying its social features immensely, particularly the ability to stream whatever game you’re playing, and the ability to watch gamers around the world play their games. PS4 is one amazing machine.

I’m sure those with Xbox Ones are having a blast themselves, and save gamers on both ends who were unfortunate enough to be part of the minority with faulty consoles, this generation is looking to be the most exciting indeed.

Yesterday Microsoft announced that it sold 1 million Xbox Ones around the world in 24hrs. The week before Sony destroyed all records by making known that it had sold 1 million PS4s in 24hrs — in the U.S. alone. So to the analysts screaming doom and gloom for the games industry can go ahead and eat some crow.


Yes! Welcome one and all to the new generation of gaming! Welcome to the next level of our pastime! I am thrilled to be one of the people through which you’ll be informed!

Happy gaming!!!

    I did not even plug in mine… A shame, isn’t it? I really do not have time to play, like, at all. I’m at the end of a semester at my university and I really do not have any free time, except 5 minute breaks I take from time to time, like right now.

    Man, I can’t wait for the semester to be over so I can get some free time and play my PS4!!!

  • ernicegilbert

    When that free time comes, Wolf, we’ll be waiting!!!! PS4 is boss!! I’m telling you! From livestreaming, watching people stream their games live on twitch and twitch via Playroom is just epic.

    Loving #PS4 next-gen so far!!!

    Oh I’m sure it is! I can’t wait :)
