I want to buy a new console, but Sony and Microsoft don't want me to
To be fair, I haven't touched my PS3 since Persona 4 Arena came out, and I haven't touched my Wii U since the Rayman Challenge levels first came out.
The console market is charging head-first into a market crash, and I'm not sure anyone knows what to do about it. To its credit, the XB1's unveil was better than the 360's, and it's the only one that seems to really understand living room integration. But I feel like the CoD audience can't support either console on its own, and the Wii U just doesn't have a pulse at all.
People who actually care about games have a PC, and maybe a 3DS. Consoles are more for the general audience, who's getting its gaming fix through tablets and phones and facebook.
EDIT: As for used games, I don't really care. Right now I have the income to buy new games (or wait for Steam sales). When I was in high school, though, I practically lived off of used games, so I'm bummed there's going to be kids at that age who can't scrap together money for a nicotine-laden Devil May Cry, or trading games with some weird dude in the parking lot who probably
deals drugs but is the only guy in 20 miles who has a copy of Disgaea so you trusted him anyways and ended up at a creepy part of town you never new existed trying to find the game in a stranger's apartment under stacks of porn and The Boston Phoenix.
So it's a bummer to see that go away.
