This is the excitement I want to see!
Talking about the generational "jumps", my lasting memory in the run up to the 360 was the excitement for wireless controllers (no more wires!) and online co-op both becoming standard. It was a while before I got an HDTV.
For the current gen, it was easily recording video of amazing things you'd seen or done. Real game-changer. And the 64 player Batters was a big deal at the time, but it didn't have the legs the previous one had.
This time around, it's just, it's time. 7 years with this launch PS4. I had a Samsung S2 back then!
