They're almost here. The Xbox One and PS4 release this month. Some retailers are already selling PS4 controllers, cameras, and video games. Next-gen fever is in the air.

function frameDim() { this.width = 0; this.height = 0;}var videoDim = videoDim || new frameDim(); videoDim.width = 610; videoDim.height = 344;

As the dates SLOWLY get closer, we asked the IGN community on Twitter what next-gen means to them.

Better graphics and tech!

With newer consoles comes better graphics. Games like Ryse: Son of Rome and Killzone: Shadow Fall will take advantage of the next-gen console's power and will deliver graphics not possible on previous generations. You can read the exact specs of the PS4 and Xbox One here in our comparison wiki.

Money, money, and more money

Although video games and consoles are the cheapest they've ever been, buying a new console is always a blow to the bank account. The PS4's retail value is $399 while the Xbox One is retailing for $499, and that's just for the console.

function frameDim() { this.width = 0; this.height = 0;}var videoDim = videoDim || new frameDim(); videoDim.width = 610; videoDim.height = 344;


Because consumers will be dropping a pretty penny for a new console, some want their purchase to be justified with innovation from developers. New ideas, new IPs, and new ways to play are only a few requests some consumers have. With each Xbox One coming with the Kinect 2.0, developers can now find ways to integrate gameplay with that new piece of tech. The PS4's touchpad can bring in new ways to play and tackle a situation in a game.

Better games, right?

Whatever console you choose to purchase, this is an exciting time for gamers. New hardware always causes debate, but in the long run it's all about having fun playing video games.

What does next-gen mean to you? Are you excited to see those improved graphics on your T.V. screen? Is innovation the most important thing this coming generation? Let us know in the comments below!
