Hi,

 

For various reasons, I've decided to hold off on making the jump to next gen.  I was just wondering how many others are sticking with the 360 for a while longer?

 

There is likely to be a ton of bargain games to be had after xmas. With me being a relative noob to xbox, I'm looking forward to getting stuck into some old classics, and I'm always up for a bit of online co-op or multiplayer.

Surely I can't be the only one to ignore the hype and wait for the dust to settle?wink

Cheers

Hey Black Cat,

 

I am by no means a late adopter, but I am cancelling my PS4 pre-order to stick with current-gen, until Infamous: Second Son! There is plenty to play. When did you get your 360, and what games do you have, or have played?Because if you are a late adopter, I'm sure the community to be willing to offer a stupid amount amount of games to keep you going until the Xbox One Slim comes out!

You are not alone, I'm doing my YOS so I won't be making the next gen jump until next Christmas. There are so many great games for this gen still to be played.

Wow Solm, a whole year is a long time, I won't be able to last beyond Feb or March before I get one of them! Fair play. Any recommendations for Graeme? I personally recommend Dragon Age Origins, a huge RPG with huge replayability, and of course, the superlative Fallout 3 and all it's DLC.

My recommendations are apart from the above, Skyrim, Dungeon Siege 3, Fable 2 and last but not least Rage.

I too am sticking current gen for a while. I've got such a vast amount of unplayed games on my 360 and I keep adding to it when I see a bargain! I am keen to find out how many members of the community are sticking with current or at least hanging on to them for a bit. My Xbox Live Gold subscription is up for renewal at the end of the year and I don't see the point in forking out for it if there's no one to play with!

I'm going to see how the console war plays out over 6 months to a year before investing. I can only afford one system so I want to choose the right one. I may even pick up a PS3 in the mean time if I can get one cheap as chips. I missed out on all the exclusives for this generation.

I am holding off until the first round of price drops, which i reckon will be April/May, and i will then see what all my trusted MLG friends have to say on both platforms before I make my decision.

My live sub runs out in 3 weeks, but will probably extend for 6 months.

 

Can anyone point me in the direction of cheap 6 month live deals?

At least I'm not the only one!

 

I've had my Xbox for about 18months and prior to that, hadn't done any gaming since PS2 days. (I don't think that Wii really counts!)

In that time though, I've built up a decent stash of games and had a load from LoveFilm before they shut down the games rental.  I'm into a bit of everything really and I'm as happy plodding thru a good story based campaign as I am having a riot in GTA5 Online.  Throw in a bit of platforming here and there plus a large dose of GeometryWars and I'm a happy teddy!

 

Unfortunately, after a year and a half, I can no longer blame my "noob" status for failing…I now have to resign myself to the fact that I'm just rubbish gamer!embarassed  It's good fun trying to get better though!

 

Thanks for the recommendations. I'll defo give them a look.  I've played Fable3 when it went free on XBL and really enjoyed it.  I have just restarted Skyrim. I bought it soon after I got the console but had never really played an RPG before so found it a bit baffling.  A year down the line though, with a lot more experience and I'm getting so much more out of it!

 

I'm not really putting a timescale on a move to next gen.  As others have said, I want to see which one gets the best feedback, once they are out there in people's hands.  At least one price drop will need to happen too.  Probably next christmas at the earliest.

 

Feel free to add me on XBL if anyone fancies a bit of co-op!

 

Cheers

Rubbish gamer I hear you say, welcome to my world. As long as you have fun and enjoy gaming there is no shame in being rubbish. Although I do think being rubbish at gaming is only a matter of opinion.

Agreed, I may not be the best racer or shooter, but I make up for it with enthusiasm. 

That said, I am a halfway decent WOT player. wink

Same here. No means to become next gen just yet.
Sure the tech looks very exciting and there will be some great advances in gaming – which I'm hoping will extend to experimentation rather than just eye candy.

Forza 5 is looking great, but I've probably only played less than half of Forza 4!
(There is of course the financial side to it all too….and I've not been saving for next gen).

Not only is there plenty of titles to play for those of us that are 'late to the party', but there are also plenty of people to play them with!
I've seen some of the community going balls deeps with Gears of War (The first one!).

I still want to give Assassins Creed 3 a go….and that Rocksmith 2014!

I've also got Hitman Absolution on the go, Batman Arkham City and Neir to play through!

Fuckin love games me…just never seem to get enough time!

Oh, almost forgot….I've got a shit tonne of Rockband content on my 360!

I'm really tempted by Rocksmith as I have a guitar upstairs which is nothing more than a pretty purple ornament! I just have so many other games to go at and I'm not really convinced that a "game" can actually teach me how to play…?

 

On the subject of Gears…I'm currently plodding thru the entire back catalogue of podcasts.  Currently around Episode 15 and Matt and Daren are buzzing about the newly released Gears 2!  I own that game but have never played it although I did play through the campaign of Gears 3 when I had it on a rental…I have never been online and experienced the reputedly brilliant "horde mode!"

 

I'm currently looking out for £3.00 XBLA titles (Castle Storm and Age of Booty, were added last night) and also waiting patiently for the expected glut of pre owned games that will follow the rush for new consoles! wink
