  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

Gamers will have to decide in the near future whether they should upgrade to the next generation of consoles or hold on to what they have.

Games made for previous PlayStation systems will not work on the PS4 because of the absence of backwards compatibility.

“I anticipate hesitation due to the lack of backwards compatibility,” said Josh Ballmer, manager at C&C Games.

For sophomore Jeremy LaBant, the lack of this is not what is going to stop him from upgrading right away.

“I’m gonna wait to get it because the PS3 will be supported for a while and the PS4 will be expensive,” LaBant said.

The transition will take time, Ballmer said.

“That might change depending on game sales, those usually push sales,” said Ballmer. The games coming out for the PS4 are the most exciting part, LaBant said.

Sony introduced its next console, the PlayStation 4, at PlayStation Meeting 2013 in New York City. The introduction of its new console is the beginning of the next generation for gamers, according to a press release from Sony.

The PS4 has many new features to make it stand out from its predecessor, according to the press release.

It has a new sleep mode that allows it to keep the console on while conserving energy and players can pick up where they left off eliminating the need to turn on the console and load a game, according to the press release.

The PS4 also allows gamers to share content more easily.

By the press of a button, users can share their accomplishments with friends and share pictures and videos on Facebook, according to the press release.

These are only a few of the improvements announced by Sony during its meeting.

Even though there are all these new features, it may take some people time to come around to next generation consoles.

Some of the games announced for the PS4 at the PlayStation meeting were Diablo III, inFAMOUS Second Son and Killzone: Shadow Fall.

However, some students might not feel positive towards the announcement of the new console.

“It’s just going to be another PS3; the features are only a little bit better,” sophomore Daniel Krentz said. The only exciting thing about the PS4 is that the PlayStation Move will be better, Krentz said.

The PS4 is set for release this winter season.
