We're at a bit of a transition period in gaming. This usually happens every now and then. The problem with this generation is that it has gone on for a bit longer than ones in the past so more people are dropping off than usual. You still have casuals leaving console gaming for their mobile phones, the hardcore are returning to PC for their "hi-tech" thrills.
In a couple of month when you see 2 bran spanking new consoles with impressif spec and crazy "bells and whistles" you may forget you were ever lacking in interest in gaming at all.
Come next gen I think I'll be back on the saddle, as at present I don't see any point spending too much money now on what is effectively dead tech. December cannot come round quick enough.
