It's time to find a new hobby! Perhaps people should be playing games instead of arguing about them.
Most people can do both. That's like saying why do people argue about sport rivalries and which team is better instead of just watching the games?
Console war...console war never changes. Or does it? The console war has changed...did it? The answer is no! Unless it is yes! No, of course it is! Is console war! Yes! No! Yes?
I feel like we should do a MGS reference here "Console War has changed"... It never really changes, things just get different.
the console war will become obsolete when there is only one platform for gaming. that's a long, long way from now...
As a primary Xbox player I can easily say Sony has won this generation. Have both so can enjoy everything though.
Good luck with that.
It's human nature.
my opinion on this petty console war https://imgur.com/hAWGt8E
... but then you steamheadz realize ... "fukc!" Microsoft made more dough in 1 year than Valve in 2+ years!" ... if we add Sony and what they make per year (which was 2x of MS in 2016), together they would make your steamheadz community look like the peasants that you actually are. A dead platform, begging for ports and too stupid to realize that many console gamers play as well on da pc >>> inflated numbers like GTA5 etc. If you really believe that close to 7mill. PC gamers bought GTA5 for the first time? Ya got to be kiddin ...2/3 of those own it on 2 or 3 devices. The real diehard pc fanboy died loooooooooong time ago. Be happy y´all are getting any ports at all .. Remove the F2P scames (85% of the pc marketrevenue, remove China and their $20bill. contribution (F2P)), and all you got are 3rd plats that most of you can not afford. I mean c´mon ... Steam and its 350mill. registered players and over 100 real-unique gamers (or more) should be generating a lot more than Sony or Microsoft with their "puny" >80mill. playerbase and only 10% of steam´s catalogue. How come? Maybe because we get the better (real) games and we are willing to drop $60 on a game? Remember to pray to your lord gaben daily, he is for sure laughing hard ... doing nothing and making so much money because of "steam-zombies" coming in masses ... keep on investing those $1000 in gpus/cpus/mechanical keyboard, 100$ mouse with custom-made gloves to ya never lose grip in CSGO or any of the 200 other arena/teambaseshooter+mobas .... The shit that is coming out of the PC corner, the ugliest dipshits, fatest, dumbest type of human beings ... just watched some of those esports. So much acne on screen, thank the fuck i did not upgrade to 4K yet! All praise da F2P gods ... for keeping this "fallacy" up that we call personal computer.
wow I had to stop reading halfway but here is my reply to your comment https://imgur.com/ciQWz5R
I wouldn't normally be one to defend oneshot, but when you think about it, Steam has pretty much made the road for MS to actually make something of it's Windows Store a much longer road than they would have had if they hadn't been so backwards for so long, and didn't wait so long to get into the market. While MS certainly does make more money than most other companies, their penchant for being behind burgeoning trends of consumer technological needs puts them in a bad position most of the time. Mobile has greatly taken away from Windows user base. MS was slow to really get into the phone market, and couldn't make anything out of it. They gave up on Zune too early, so couldn't make anything in that market. They ignored Steam and DD for software for too long, eventually making the Windows store irrelevant with Metro and GWG, and if they don't play the long game with their new Windows Store integration into Win10 they'll fail there too. So, yeah, downplay Steam, and it's users, but Steam has more effect on MS than you give them credit for.
You actually used the phrase: "cant wait to push this game to its limits with my rig" So...maybe you shouldn't be taking shots at others, lmao.
It wasn't that long ago that you were fully engaged in this "petty console war", now you act like you are above such things? Such a fraud.
Mine will always be better than yours , human nature.
The console war of gen 8 has been over since fall 2013...
It will never end. And that's just fine. It's at times fun and belive it or not it drives the industry a bit. It's going to be interesting to see how things heat up when Xbox One X will have game after game looking and running better on it. Especially since Xbox is the underdog this generation.
" is the console war finally coming to an end" Seem to me Every 2 weeks this same OLD question is asked since 2006 Same damn question each year since 2006 but in different format to Seem New. What is this Bored at the office day? or some kind of mind control subliminal repetitive message until we believe it coming to an end. Lately lot of articles beginning to repetitively repeat themselves . What these Editors trying to do control our decision ?
Yes. Microsoft is Shifting back to pc. Can't compete with a genuine video game console lik3 Sony has done for yrs
Dear god i hope so. Our hobby has come a long way since i started gaming 30+ years ago. Its so mainstream compared to the stereotypes of decades ago. More women than ever game today. “Console wars” is one of the last nerdy stereotypes of bygone eras. Its cringeworthy everytime i see people talk about sales and why Console A is better than Console B. There is discussions to be had as to preferences as to why we choose one potentially over another. Its when i see sales figures and arguments over “true” exclusives and the word “beast” used in every comment that all i can do is think that poor soul is to emotionally invested in a piece of plastic by one company vs another. Makes me think he is that steretype gamer living in his mothers basement with tape on his glasses using pocket protectors.
Only idiots argue over stuff like that.
The funny thing is that is my stance on sports, lol. It's really the same: multi million (or billion) dollar companies (teams) compete with another, and their respective fans argue about which team is the best and why.
I think consoles will evolve into fully fledged PCs. Sony and Xbox will become platforms competing with Steam and co. Like Android phones, they will be running modified versions of a common unix based operating system.
God, I hope not, I don't even like Steam, I just tolerate it since it has the monopoly on PC gaming.
No competition, no war. If you want a 4k player that plays games good on you. If you want an excellent gaming machine you know where it's at. People who choose to be stubborn or ignorant with their purchase that's their own fault
I think the writer is confused. Brand wars are meant to drive ad traffic. The marketers at paid-off gaming sites, publishers, and most companies are the primary instigators of arguments using finely crafted and skewed misinformation. They create brand fanatics and this inevitably creates opposition. A discussion needs to start there first. While we can band-aid the symptoms, the root causes must ultimately be addressed.
It's true that the differences between the libraries of the two main systems are less significant than they once were. However, the console wars rage on. It was never a real construct, but that doesn't stop it from filling comments sections.
Console war will never end because it is simply human nature. Gamers are not the only ones arguing over products. Craftsman vs Snap-on, Mustang vs Camaro, IPhone vs Galaxy, Nike vs Reebok etc.
"Sony gets you the big, splashy narratives and anime junk, while Microsoft is the more living room experiential fare like multiplayer shooters, tons of multimedia options, and an excellent social system" Yeah...that's not biased at all...AT ALL! Damn, this guy is a translucent idiot! Trying to act all adult and shit, like he ain't some fucking fanboy himself. "I was 15 once too" - yeah, like last week
I mean yeah it is. XBOX is about to be discontinued :D
There will always be competition, so for the wars to stop will never happen it’s part of the industry now.
