The home video game console, a dedicated machine designed specifically to bring video games into the home, is a stubbornly resilient thing of the past, a limiting anachronism that does much more harm to the gaming industry than it does good.
You can always count on polygon to write some of the most insane drivel articles in the gaming industry. There is absolutely nothing wrong, unnecessary or wasteful about home consoles. it infuriates me that I went against my better judgement and clicked on a polygon article. Never again.
Just look at the PS4 hardware and software numbers, look who wrote this article, realise the intent of it or why they are saying this and move on. Polygon is a joke.
Polygon needs to die
And Microsoft needs to pull the trigger
Is this a new way to create click bait? chopping the hand that feeds you...
ohh yes...now that japanese industry is leading the way again in games industry , we see idiotic opinions from westerners that console gaming needs to die ...i wonder if Xone (i musing Xone as is the representative of western console industry) was at the lead and had these explosive sales of PS4 and some of the exclusives IPs of Nintendo , would polygon have written such idiotic opinion articles???? ...i think not ...then they would speak for the limitless advantages of console gaming and the golden future that awaits them ...hypocrites and idiots as always =Polygon
here you go.. hackers please hack these idiotic polygon sites instead, do everything you can to shut them down.. at least you will make gamers happy for once...
Imbecilic attempts at game journalism need to die and polygon should be the one to pull the trigger.
I wonder if Polygon even likes video games with negative articles like that one.
"The console needs to die and Nintendo should be the one to pull the trigger" Polygon needs to die and you should pull the trigger on yourself.
If the factory that makes the hardware for the consoles gets shut down then that would lead all 3 consoles to an early grave. Last time i heard AMD has reported another fiscal loss in revenues, Because of their CPU division. Some years ago they did have to shut their globalfoundries factory and discontinue chipsets. I do wish them the best of luck, those guys are always taking financial hits.
I hope they stop producing graphics cards, mine is driving me crazy. Driver issues and noise being the main problem. Getting headaches all the time, even when playing with a headset on because that radeon hd 7970 is making an insane noise. It's just terrible but I don't have another 300 bucks for a new card. Definitely my last AMD card ever.
* So sick of these Perverted Death Articles. Other Journalists need to call Polygon out for this BS. * Wishing Death upon something ? Really Polygon ? Like for real ? How can you even reason or justify that? So perverted it's disgusting. * Polygon Are You blind ? If consoles go ? games go....if games go, WTH are you going to lie....I mean write about ? * Whoever this person's boss is needs to step up, be an adult and fire this person.
Go to hell with this article
polygon.. just move along people
Why the media really wants to consoles to go away, there is something really fishy about all these articles coming from the past years. They started a campaign for Nintendo to leave the hardware market, also there are a lot of articles trying to start a commotion saying how many signatures a petition got asking for games like Bloodborne, Xenoblade Chronicles and Halo for PC, even if these games are published by console developers. It's really common articles saying how it's bad exclusives for a console, but praises when a game it's exclusive for PC/Mac. Seriously, what's going on? I don't have any problem with the PC platform, sometimes i really like to play on my Mac, the problem here it's the media always releasing articles saying how consoles should disappear or " needs to die" like this lame site. I play on consoles since SNES era and i have all the PlayStation consoles released and i really like the systems and their exclusives. Why both can't coexist? I guess that's one of the reasons why a lot of gamers don't bother anymore to access these sites, something it's really wrong with the gaming media.
Collectivists will be collectivists.
Ms focusing on PC gaming may have some influence (purposely or not)
Not going waste my time with this.isn't gaming the reason they have a Website to write articles about gaming but they want consoles to die. Lol ok short bus riders time to get off at the next stop called common sense.
It's a good thing dedicated consoles die, we will all have something like a cheap Roku box and just subscribe to whatever streaming services we like
keep your sorry streaming roku box, I'll keep my consoles
lol, Polygon, thanks for the laugh today...
Yeah whatever. The day this happens is the day businesses worldwide stop caring about money.
Oh wow, look at that, a clown punching itself in the face!!!... Oh, never mind, it's just a polygon article...
lol it's like Apple Inc. itching to destroy Windows PC devices by making stupid propaganda like Post-Pc era while they're still selling Macs, which is also a PC. This is article is not different from it, making stupid propaganda like die-console issue and then endorse other alternatives products.
Story quality = WTF? Like this website? NO. Thats what i do to any polygon articles.
If consoles die, gaming is pretty much dead to me as I refuce to buy an expensive pc to play goat simulator on it. So ya, f*ck polygon.
What the hell kind of story is thi.... Oh it's Polygon, go figure.
Worst article ever. Not even close.
You sure you aren't being transphobic towards R.O.B. by using a pic like that, Polygon?
They deserve a kick in the nuts. http://media0.giphy.com/med...
>implying they have nuts
It's weird seeing a website dedicated to videogames writing an article with a title like that. I say title because I refuse to give them hits.
Why so people who don't want to sit in front of a computer screen or people without PC's can't enjoy video games, this article is a joke....
Nintendo is KING of the dedicated home console, still the go to for the best exclusives which marry hardware and software perfectly. IF anybody were to put an end to the console it (in my opinion) should be Microsoft first, Sony second, Nintendo NEVER.
I love Nintendo's past and favorite systems of all time being NES and SuperNes but Nintendo just isn't pushing to better their consoles. This shows with the third-party support. Nintendo needed to evolve when the Wii came out, but instead they played it safe with their titles. All of their gamers grew up but Mario/Luigi/Princess Peach haven't changed.
Is that a fact?
Why do N4G continues to approve clickbait/half-written/joke articles like this? Get this garbage off the front page.
At this point it's sad to say, but no one would truly care if Nintendo stopped making consoles. Furthermore, Nintendo no longer has the strong arm to force other companies to kill consoles. Nintendo failed to evolve, while Sony and Microsoft took this opportunity to bring better systems into our living rooms. I'm really surprised Polygon allowed this opinion piece because in all honesty, if home consoles failed/died then Polygon would be out of business. Everyone would be reading PC Gamer instead.
Can we down bubble polygon for trolling? Ridiculous article.
This crap is why we have the most overused quote ever: "Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one."
So consoles need to die eh. Hmmm, 40 plus million combined current gen console sales say otherwise. Polygon, more like trollygon.
Polygon, Dualshockers, Gamingbolt, and all other flame bait fiends all need to go to to hell where they belong.
