Gamers Want More Control In Their Next Gen Consoles, I'm Talking To You PS4 (Orbis) and Xbox 720

ZoKnowsGaming writes "At no other time in history has there been such opportunity for console makers to drastically change the structure of the industry for the better and possibly increase their revenues at the same time. I am not and have never been a serious PC gamer but I think that all console gamers are ultimately seeking the customization and freedom of PC gaming but within their chosen console experience and technology finally exist to make that happen.

Whether or not the companies decide to do it or not is another question. Here are a few of the things that we think both the PlayStation 4 (PS4)(Orbis) or the Xbox 720 or whatever you want to call them need to have to start giving gamers the control they really want."

Buy a fucking PC, then. Jesus Christ...

I know, right?

Everything the author wants can be done with any PC today, whether it's store-bought or a custom rig. He's just too lazy and cheap to do it himself.

He also didn't research his article very well. In the hdd section he said that sony hadn't made changeable hdd in the ps3 originally.

Plus the whole upgradable parts in the console thing is a bad idea. It's been tried, the great thing about consoles is that they come out in well defined generations.

^ indeed, go to the PC route.

If your not knowledgeable to build a PC, have the store assemble it for you.

I don't know why people disagree with these things. Maybe they think it's tee expensive?

you can get a used low end gaming rig for 2-300, and can build a pretty decent one from scratch with 3-4. Thats not much more than a console. Plus you can get a much wider variety of use from the pc.

If you have an hdtv it plugs in the same way via hdmi, You can get a pc version xbox360 controller with a dongle so you can play many games with the controller if you prefer. And my favorite feature, multi monitor support gives you a good excuse to have another tv in your living room. Sometimes I watch movies/shows and game at the same time.

I don't think console gamers want that. Only the minority have never asked for it from what I have seen.

Developers would then be forced to support multiple versions of consoles which will take away more of their polish time and lead to crappier games.

Not only that it will also complicate matters for customers and therefore receive less sales.

This is allround a horrible idea.

I don't think companies want consumers to have more control 0_o
