We’ve been stuck in the seventh generation of gaming for such a long time that it’s starting to feel like dog years. The Xbox 360 came out all the way back in 2005, the PS3 and Wii caught up the year after, and we’ve probably burned through one or two systems while waiting for the next model to drop. It’s been a good run, but with the Wii U’s release and Sony’s big announcement this February 20 most probably about the PlayStation 4 (we’re betting on it), we’re finally moving on.
What does the future hold? We massage our crystal balls to find out.

1. It’s the end of Call of Duty! Capt. Price dies!
Well, not really. Though the monster franchise survived developer Infinity Ward’s self-destruction at the end of 2010—both Modern Warfare 3 and Black Ops 2 did pretty well—things aren’t perfect in FPS land. EA’s shuttering of Medal of Honor shows that there’s no such thing as too big to fail, and if the next COD doesn’t do anything to quiet the growing discontentment with the series, then the end of this gravy train might just be in sight.
2. Oculus Rift will make you sell your TV!
