Sony announced 3 hyped games at an otherwise meh E3 conference in the year 2015. Final Fantasy VII, The Last Guardian, Shenmue 3. The latter of which didn't have a trailer but a selfie video promoting kickstarter.

The next generation of gaming is nearby, and it's imperative that technology evolves to supplement the changes in technology available today.

By one thing comes across everyones minds, price. With huge advancements on the horizon after 5 years of stagnation, if we want a similar jump like the GamceCube to 360 in scope,, we will likely be seeing game consoles charging from $600 and up.

Will you even consider buying consoles during the first full year if they are over $500 at launch?

There is something wrong with modern multiplayer shooters, and I don't think I am the only person that thinks this way. Over the years developers have, for whatever reason, molded their experiences into something that just doesn't feel good anymore. I am going to lay out what "I" think the problems are to get us started, but I imagine many of you have your own ideas and griefs so lets hear them!
