What Do Men Want From Games, Tech, and Mobile?

IGN - Apps are unpopular, as is Xbox One. (PS4, Xbox One)

In before PS4 for men, Xbox One for kids or some nonsense.

"while the majority -- 46% -- said they'd spend money on neither"

What?! These aren't real men!

This is cause of the bad press from the Xbox reveal, which was was all over the Internet. Many casuals didn't get to see the news of the DRM reverse since that wasn't all over the Internet the way the reveal was.

How is what I'm doing trolling? I'm just trying intervening before people start posting flamebait s***. I'm not egging things on at all. I've clearly stated that, that kind of sentiment is nonsense.

Septic  +   275d ago
@Silent

You're so predictable (as always). I knew you would post that.

Anyone who has any reading comprehension can tell that I'm not trolling. I've clearly stated that, that kind of sentiment is nonsense so anyone who proceeded to make a similar comment (which lets be honest, this is N4G, is bound to happen- look below), will fall foul of blatantly typing said nonsense.

In fact, Donniuboi interpreted it as PR control, as if it was some attempt at damage limitation in favour of MS, which it wasn't. So there was no egging on at all. That's more that can be said about the vast majority of your comments on this site.

I can, hand on my heart, say that it was never my intent to stir s*** or troll people. Quite the opposite really.

And before you point out my reply to Donnieboi's comment below, I was posting in jest (I intended to point out the word 'boi' in his username).

Anyway, whatever. Think what you want.

In before someone says that that 46% are going to buy mobile and so that obviously means the death of console gaming.

@georgenoob: Are you serious? No, it couldn't possibly be because of forced Kinect and $100 more expensive for weaker hardware. It has to be because of the DRM only. And btw, the news that the DRM was reversed was most definitely ALL OVER the internet. Hence the Xbox 180 memes. It wasn't all over TV like the DRM was though.

The survey also states the majority at 44% would rather have a new car than a promotion at work which is only 3%!

A promotion is a raise, that helps you get that car!

Bad press bad press.... Bad press...

We don't listen to the press about their thoughts on a reveal. These journalists express a thought that came to them when Microsoft dropped their supposed bomb shells so people like you can try to understand it better. I don't need to read someone else's justification in order to better understand a situation. Especially when I saw and heard the whole thing myself.

What you can't get over is that you got addicted to the Xbox and now it is a big problem. Like the discovery that cigarettes cause cancer, you'd sit there and try to spin people away from the "facts" to keep them smoking. Or worse. You'd create an anti smoking campaign and become a big annoyance to the public. Instead let them make a choice. If they choose Xbox then let them. If they choose Wiiu then let them. If they choose PS4 too bad, let them. When it comes to being a fanboy you sure do fall under the category of a Sega fanboy.

CalvinKlein  +   275d ago
well I actually beleive this to be true for this new gen since the new xbox forces you to have a kinnect and is less powerful.

I dont have to put much thought into what one I want most because xbox1 is 100$ more expensive and sacrifices power for motion controls, and I hate motion controls/cameras/wands etc. Only thing I like is plastic guns and surprisingly there are none on kinnect. Thought that would be obvious for MS, pretty dense of them.

CalvinKlein  +   275d ago
I love those types of games. I had house of the dead 2 on the dreamcast and 2 light guns with auto fire and auto reload so you could use both and destroy everything.

Those were the only games Id spend money on at the arcades. Time crisis games, house of the dead, that jurassic park one, virtua cop, silent scope and that more recent one with the vibrating smg. I even remember some older one where one person drove and the other shoots stuff. I always loved those moving time crisis guns especially, sadly they were often broken.
Xboxonefan27  +   275d ago
You hate motion controls,probably because you never tried them.You can buy a Xbox One with or with-out the Kinect.
DarkHeroZX  +   275d ago
@x1fan

I hated the Wii, didn't like kinect, and because PS move reminded me too much of the Wii I couldn't get into it. Motion control sucks. And no as it stands you absolutely have to have kinect to use the X1, that is why MS is bundling all the consoles with it.

Hey septic, no disrespect but i always notice, whenever someone praises the PS4 so much or someone is giving a negative comment on xbox one you are there to reply and somehow debunk the comment. Yes your comments doesn't have direct saying about xbox is good xbox is better. but what bugs me is that you can't accept someone praising the PS4 or saying bad things about the xbox one. these are opinions bro no need to go all out. When I see someone defending the xbox one i just ignore it bec its his opinion or if a hater says something about the PS4 i don't care. I somehow feel your quite inclined towards xbox. i hope you prove me wrong then. because your comments looks "neutral" but i feel you like xbox better

While I buy my favorite 1st and 3rd party made games on PS3, PS4, 3DS, Vita (and Wii U at years end) games NEW. Gotta make sure that QUALITY game developers get supported.

Just because someone's hardcore doesn't mean they have to buy every system.
I think i've had just about every system that has been released since i was born.
But i'm not going to pay £80 more for a console weaker than its competitor and forces you to buy a camera. And i'm definitely not going to give £430 to a company that would want to take away the rights that i've had since i first started gaming just to make themselves more money.

How long will you keep perpetuating the fallacy that a "hardcore" gamer MUST buy all systems?

Is that some way to try and justify why you're buying into crap policies while trying to make others feel bad for not doing the same?

Gamers also care about the industry, or they should, if they're more than casual. Just buying everything, period, is the sort of thing a casual gamer would do.

Pointless to buy a 360 just play Gears of War, Halo, Fable, and Forza. So we can be hardcore without playing those titles. If you miss out on PS3 then you're missing out on dozens of quality exclusives not just 4 franchises if you were to skip Xbox 360. That's just how I see it.

MrKingofVideoGames  +   275d ago
You really have to wonder how familiar any of these people are with Killer Instinct at all. The game came out 19 years ago 'fer cryin' out loud! How many people (besides me) are even old enough to have played it (in the arcade, on SNES, and N64) and still care?
FlunkinMonkey  +   275d ago
What's your point? I remember it, and many others do.. If you are going to put the Killer Instinct stamp on it, then it should surely retain an essence of what the original was.. Otherwise just call it somethin else, no?

I understand there's a lot of younger players here and that's a fair point, but for anyone who does remember, i think the general consensus would be that it doesn't look or feel much like the original (from what's been seen, i may be proven wrong).

Just seen you said you do remember it.. You make fair points man, i just personally don't think it looks very good, and looks like Street Fighter 4 more than anything else. I also don't have much faith in Double Helix with regards to their atrocious track record.

I am a massive KI fan and if I am honest the moment they showed the first 5 sec's of the game I knew I was not buying it, it was not KI in relation to the one I knew and Loved back in the day.

"lol we'll for one Microsoft is not forcing you to buy a Kinect."

Okay, link me to a retailer's page that has the Xbox One listed with no Kinect.

"You have a choice to buy a X1 chances are you probably wasn't going to buy one anyway right?"

You're right, I am not going to spend a penny on it when I'm forced to pay an extra $100 for an accessory I don't need.

"So why do u care so much?"

The same reason you cared enough to reply to Starbucks_Fan about the PS Eye and Move.

"Plus there is a reason why Sony didn't push or make these standard Which is the same reason they didn't make the the new PS Eye standard and why the Playstation move became an afterthought."

Thanks. You pretty much confirmed that Sony doesn't shove useless equipment down a consumer's throat.

"I don't even have to tell you the reason you should already know, and no it's not because Sony love you so much that they gave you the freedom of choice ether."

Maybe they gave us an option because the people behind PlayStation are gamers and they know what real gamers want.

Consoles are supposed to mainly be gaming machines. I don't need a bunch of apps on it, except big ones such as Netflix and Hulu. Nothing else is really necessary. Apps aren't a selling point for consoles. A pizza hut app is pointless, Microsoft.

Men prefer PS4 because they are smart enough to not be loyal to a corporation.

Kids aren't very smart so they tend to go with what they think is popular. At the moment Xbox has the bigger brand name.

"Men prefer PS4 because they are smart enough to not be loyal to a corporation."

Is this supposed to be a joke or intentional troll? Because around here there are nothing but irrational and immature fanboy's who are loyal to Sony. They demean others for having different preferences and spend their days trolling all non Sony news articles.

If most men want a next gen console with better hardware in terms of GPU, Memory, etc...all at a cheaper price and do not care for mandatory camera functionality, then I can see why that would be the case in favor of the PS4.

I enjoy the finer things in life. I have a killer PC. Now I want the best console for my money. That the PS4. I might for the holidays buy a WII U for the kids.

I just hope the obnoxious bratty kids go to ps4. Xbox Live was a better place before it became the console of choice and a zillion little kids played online.

From another Internet poll.
Another Sony circle jerk article from Sony circle jerk ground zero IGN.
The Internet is broken.
Articles like this are dumb they do nothing for the industry and are pointless.

I agree

It seem that IGN are really desperate for hits.

1) this article shouldn't have been called half of the man don't care about gaming?
2) they have a similar article called why-are-some-ign-readers-passi ng-on-xbox-one
It's says that 39% of the people asked consider buying a Xbox 1 at launch or in the initial year
http://ca.ign.com/articles/...

But guess what? They have another article called Why fans are buying a PS4 because...
and when you read the article my 1 question would be how come the isn't present the same way
where the question the same? (I doubt)
http://ca.ign.com/articles/...

The fun part is they want to make change to the forum due to nature of the content yet keep adding to the fire
Here's one of the post maid to editor regarding new policies.

"Well can you moderate your staff to write articles without extreme bias? You all used to be a source for outstanding gaming coverage, lately all you've been is a platform for the PS4 launch and PS4 only. This is very concerning as I may get fifteen minutes in a day to view entertainment news and a good portion of your highest commented articles are those that spin a negative light/title against the XB1. Don't get me wrong, I'm getting both consoles, but I cannot enjoy this site the way that I once did because your staff has created a monster with the XB1 bashing. Why is this the case and what is the direction of this site? I seriously want to embrace this site the way that I once did before."
