Have You Completely Abandoned The Previous Generation?

Now that we're well into the new generation of hardware, have you waved a permanent goodbye to the last era?

Are the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and/or Wii out of rotation for good? Or do you still go back and play games on those consoles?

Recent evidence suggests that gamers made the recent transition faster than in any previous generation. Generational fatigue, coupled with the immense hype surrounding two machines launching at about the same time, probably contributed to the rapid adoption rate. However, after so many games launched in the previous era, you might've had a tremendous backlog heading into this generation.

If that's the case, are you still chipping away at that backlog, or have you simply dropped those "old" games altogether? And if you haven't yet jumped on the next-gen bandwagon yet, why not?

My PS3 and Wii still get used. Just finished my first play through of the Witcher 3 and am about to jump on The Last Story on my Wii. Still have tons of unfinished games on PS3 as well.

Just out of curiosity, what made you get an xbox one instead of a ps4?

I got my PS4 at launch and kept my PS3 for year and a half.

After some months of not turing on the PS3 I decided to trade it for an XB1. I really wanted to play Sunset Overdrive and a couple of other exclusives.

I got like 150 USD for my PS3, 100 for my Uncharted collection and a couple of Move controllers, 15% off from Amazon, so it was a trully trade

If it wasn't for Ultra Street Fighter IV, my PS3 wouldn't have been used at all for over a year. The last non-USF4 game I played on it was DMC. In fact, I just retired my PS3 when USF4 released for PS4 and it's being displayed proudly on one of my shelves.

Many thanks to my PS3 for all the great moments. It has certainly earned it's well deserved retirement.

i sold my ps3 a month before my ps4 came. so yeah, i was quick to ditch it and move on.

also, i knew it was time to go when the ps store was extremely laggy and still is from what ive seen on my bros ps3.

they seriously need to overhaul the ps store, it is anything but user friendly. and still laggy at times, just not as bad as the ps3.

For all practical terms I abandoned that generation 1.5 years before the new even started. I was so god darn tired of that box. It came to a point where I still purchased games out of old habit, but never played them.

Think I have both batman games to finish, uncharted 2 & 3, haven't even started the original black ops...
Thats what I can think of right away, sure there are more, but just don't have the time. Might have to give up on them, get the uncharted ps4 compilation and retire the ps3

My PS4 has been getting more love than my PS3 lately. I do still play PS3 games though, and I have a huge backlog to get caught up on so I won't be retiring it any time soon. Also, I can't justify spending full price on new games these days so I've got a bit of a drought coming up on my PS4 until some PS4 games I want get cheap (and I have time to play them).

I expect my PS3 will stay on the shelf for at least another year.

No way, I still have an gigantic backlog on both PS3 & PC I haven't played/finished, so I'm not even thinking of buying a PS4 yet...

Maybe if I see a great deal on Black Friday I might still pick one up, who knows...
