Aeropause: "It wasn't long before my wife and I went to the store to buy a PlayStation 3 that I was mocking the system, even just to tease my brothers who picked up the system near launch."
Not the machine you play them with. ...but of course some consoles may offer more to your liking. You decide. Not fanboys.
the loyalty people have to a brand.I just go where the games are, you play the games not the brand. Last gen I was a PS2 fan.I didnt care about the xbox and gamecubes extra "power".All I cared about was the games not the console itself or the brand. I dont understand people who buy consoles directly at launch too.No matter which console it is : how can you have so much confidance that its going to deliver ???.Ive never bought a console at launch.Always waited a year or two before choosing a console.I mean how can you guys know that the console will live up to th expectations ?That way I kept myself from doing a mistake and buying the Gamecube or xbox (though ended up buying them later on 2nd hand). Right now Im a 360 fan but wont be buying the 720 at launch just because its made by MSFT.It has to deliver.IF the 360 all of a sudden went the way of the gcube I would have to get a PS3.I wont force myself to stick with the 360.When FF went multiplat I saw a whole lot of blogs etc pop up about people who were swearing to never buy a 360 even if lets say the PS3 ended up like the dreamcast. It just baffles me...
When you have been console gaming as long as I have, branding is irrelevant. If a console has some games that you want to play, go buy it. I am weak when I crave a particular game, I have to buy/play it. Screw anyone that doesn't like me for what games I like or want. I don't play games to make them happy.
I agree, fanboys have completely lost touch with what gaming is all about imho. I have loved video games since I got a Vic 20 when I was 5. I have had the debates in the school yard as to which console was better in the 8bit and 16 bit days but at the end of the day if I could afford it, I would have bought them all. What has been going on in forums and comments sections in the last 10 years is just crazy, there are great games on all consoles. If you feel rage inside of you because of a certain console of company, I would think there is something wrong. like you said , it is about the games, and you can prefer a particular console, or choose one to suit your needs. But if you hate, a little video game fairie dies every time you do, and soon there won't be anymore... /cry *runs away arms waving with a tear drop in his eye*
Agreed.It's really baffling when i log on to N4G and i read comments from fanboys saying things like "i will never buy a microsoft console or sony or nintendo console".Why?are you not a gamer?are you not buying a console to play games? At the moment i only own a 360 because it suits my gaming needs.Does that mean i hate the PS3 or Sony?absolutely not. I have owned 2 Sony consoles - PS and PS2 2 Sega consoles - sega mega drive and dreamcast 2 nintendo consoles - n64 and SNES and 2 microsoft consoles - xbox and 360. I go where the games are, and if today the PS3 line up starts to eclipse the line up of the 360, then i will be adding a PS3 into my leaving room space, and maybe give my 360 to my cousin in Africa(it's hard for me to maintain 2 consoles at the moment).Or if i can i will keep both. @lachance: I have bought a lot of consoles at launch just because of games.My PS purchase was down to just seeing a TV spot for Battle Arena Toshinden.Dreamcast was Blue Stinger and Power Stone.Xbox was Project Gotham racing and 360 was PGR3(80,000 polygons per car said the previews, how could i resist). Some people just can't wait to get their hands on a game no matter how rubbish the console might end up.At the point they read a preview or see it in action on a next gen hardware, they just can't help themselves. It's all about the games.
I see what you mean. Im the patient kind of guy so I dont mind waiting ,most of the time I dont even buy games at launch.Usually a month or even 2 after the release. I would have been a perfect Sony fanboy....I JOKE I JOKE , I KID I KID ! :)
I agree. I think that most hardcore fanboys are likely teenagers or have only been gaming since the ps2 era. Either way, I find their logic unbelievably ridiculious at times. Especially the Sony fanboys on this site, they are an embarassment to regular ps3 owners like myself. I find myself defending the 360 most of the time, because the rabid idiocy of some of these folks is just flat wrong.
After reading the comments that came from some Sony fanboys yesterday regarding this article http://www.n4g.com/industry... I really don't blame you at all. Are fanboys not supposed to be like sales men for their respective console of choice?Instead they are making true Sony gamers embarrassed to be associated with them and turning people away from purchasing a PS3 by making such disrespectful and idiotic comments.
Owning every console is the way to go. I prefer the PS3 but it will never completely fulfill my gaming needs. I mean, how can you pass up the Mario games and the exclusive games from the 360 like Gears of War 2? I know I can't, which is why I dished out the money to buy all the systems.
Yeah, that is just sick for someone to troll such a story. Kind of reminds me of the pricks who raided the online funeral of a WoW gamer who had died in real life, only somewhat worse. But I have to say that I was impressed by the number of people (Sony, MS, and Ninty) that set aside their differences and came together as fellow gamers in sight of such a tragic event. edit- I'm watching the disagrees rack up on my earlier comment. Which is actually helping prove my point. lol
The Saint has spoken ; p I started with Amiga 500(some of you probably don't know what it is now), went through Nintendo(nes, weee!), Sega, PC in meantime, Sony, Sega, Nintendo and Sony again and now I'm with PS3/PSP. Why? Games. Later of course. I really didn't really had that much idea during first years to select among available platforms, but since PSX, yeah, games. Bubbles up mate.
You are talking trash! It's not all about the games. There are other things connected. I don't go to church because everyone else in my family does. I'm an atheist because I don't believe in faith and gods. Why should I pay for something I don't believe in? I don't support xbox360 because of all the FUD their headhonchos spread about the ps3 (and believe me this is only about 1/3 of the reasons I don't support it). In general MS is just greedy. They are the first ones to collect on everything they can. I don't want to support greed. I don't eat meat because I don't want to support massproduction/slaughtering and exploitation of living creatures no matter how good the meat itself might taste. To me to say it's all about games is taking the easy way out. That's a watered down answer and it tries to take things to such levels that you don't have to take responsibility for anything. I don't like it and I say you talk trash because of it. There's more in life than concrete.
1.11-no one cares 1.9-you only have one disagree get over it i stick with the ps3 because it does have games and the better line up for me, i only bought it last november right when uncharted came up. you guys are just as bad of fanboys screaming the ps3 has no games coming up, thats just silly. i'm not going to waste 600-700 dollars to play GeoW2. that's just not reasonable, i do other things. so i stuck with the ps3 because it came with WiFi, a hdd, and free online. that and the games are the reason i bought a ps3 so don't say only gamers go where the games are at cause i could've upgraded my PC to play all the games on the 360, and that is not true for the ps3.
no one cares about your opinions
It is about the games, get over it. You prefer a console? here`s a cookie.. *hands over cookie*
I agree with everything else but buying a console at launch comment it's like watching a movie as soon as it comes out. Some people wait for movie reviews to watch movies while other watch it the first day it comes out. It has nothing to do with loyalty but preference/life style yet some cases it might be. Some people will simply watch a movie based on the director or won't watch a movie based on the director. There is nothing wrong with buying something the first day it comes out. The only real reason for someone to hold back would be prices not so much loyalty. Because I buy a 2008 vehicle in 2008 and you buy a 2008 vehicle in 2009/2010 doesn't mean I have loyalty, I just have money to spend, lol.
I agree. People go see movies on open night.......with expectations based on previews...so why not be able to do it with consoles. I tend to like to get things when they first come out......if I wait too long, it loses interest to me. If I liked Halo 1..and know that Halo 2 is coming out...why not go ahead and invest in the console if I want to play it? We know that for the most part the next generation is going to be better than the last......so we are not completing going out on a limb....but simply being apart of the first to extend our hobby.
I have brand loyalty towards Sony, and heres why: - I used to love playing on the PS1 with my friends. Had great games like Tony Hawk, Metal Gear Solid, Syphon Filter, Grand Theft Auto ect. - The PS2 was great, and continued to have great games like SOCOM, Metal Gear Solid 2+3, God of War ect. - most of my friends and I seemed to stick with Sony just because we knew what to expect from them, and because we liked the games that the PS2 had that were exclusive at the time( Grand Theft Auto, SOCOM, Metal Gear Solid ). Also we really liked the Sony dual shock controllers. Some of my friends had a few issues with their PS1s, but non had issues with their PS2s and either did I. - When the XBOX 360 came out I was considering it because it was the first next gen system. I was so busy playing Socom all the time that I thought I would wait to see what the PS3 would be like. When the XBOX 360 came out there had been all kinds of reports of discs melting and I can't remember If the RRoD had started right after launch, but the faulty hardware turned me off. I waited until the February after the November launch of the PS3 just to see if it would have the same kinds of problems the 360 had, but all seemed to be good. I then compared the Hardware of the 2 systems, and for me it was a no brainer to buy a PS3 with all of the bells and whistles. It just has better quality and more technology behind it.(Blu-Ray, BlueTooth, web browser ect.) I still have that same PS3 and last September I bought a 2nd PS3 (both are 60gig) for my livingroom. The first one I bought is in my office. The lack of games was a tough thing to get through, but I just continued to play Socom (backwards compatability) and now there are all kinds of games out. SOCOM and Metal Gear Solid were huge deciding factors towards buying a PS3 and of course I'd still get to play all of the other great multi-plat games like Rainbow Six, Ghost Recon, Call of Duty, Tiger Woods PGA Tour ect. I didn't care about Final Fantasy or any other RPG since I'm not into those games, so those were not deciding factors. With the XBOX 360, HALO didn't interest me at all, and I had never really heard of and XBOX title that really grabbed my attention except for when Gears of War came out, but I was not about to buy a 360 just for that. Forza looked pretty good too. I do play the 360 once in a while over at a friends place where I have played some HALO 2, HALO 3, Gears of War (although I havn't played enough of that game), RSV, RSV2, GRAW2 and Rock Band. This friend and another person I know who own 360s, both have had to send theirs in due to RRoD. For one of them it took 3 weeks to get It back and the other took 2 1/2 months. Now there are so many great games comming out for the PS3 that there is no question that in my mind I made the best decision. Resistance 2, Killzone 2, Socom: Confrontation, MAG, God of War 3, Infamous, MotorStorm: Pacific Rift. So thats why I prefer Sony over Microsoft. Just alot of years playing on Playstation, the games and the hardware. XBOX 360 didn't have enough to sway me. So its not that I hate the XBOX 360, its just that I like the quality, free online play and various other things that Sony offers that Microsoft does not.
How you got La Chance, Bangledash, The Montrealian and Green all acting like they aint fanboys, when they are all pro-360 fanboys, give it a rest guys, you aint fooling anyone. But yeah, brand loyalty to anything is just plain stupid. I will buy whatever has what I want. I've had a 360 since launch on Nov 22, 05, and i've owned a PS3 since Nov of 07. And both are about the same to me. Although i do acknowledge that the 360 is overall the better system technically, but I think Sony got the better games coming in my opinion. But i still the PS3 is just graphically good as the 360. And i wanna get a Wii too, but am just waiting for it to go down in price (cuz i want me some Zelda, and Metroid, and Galaxy, and Smash, and Paper Mario, etc). And I know the Wii dont got 360/PS3 graphics, but guess what? I still think they look good. And i also do not sweat games that are supposed to be all that, like Halo and GTA and the rest of the over-hyped games. I dont listen to reviewers either, i judge things for myself, and do not need anyone or anything telling me what is good. Im more than capable of doing that myself. People stop letting this side talking crap take over your minds and just learn to enjoy the systems for what they are worth. The PS3 is not as disgusting as 360 fanboys think it is, and the 360 is not as big a piece of sh!t as Sony fanboys think it is. And believe it or not, having both companies compete, is really, really good for us and benefitting us. I like having both systems. And both systems are both good and bad. Now get over your fvcking loyalty to a fvcking video game system. And learn to just enjoy the sh!t. Especially you older men! @Montrealian, why? cuz the truth hurts? You are pro-360, are you not? Well if I've offended you, then I apologize. But what's me "fail" mean? That my post gets an "F"? the internet cracks me up with its weak a$$ lingo. @ La Chance, ok, you got me, if you say you aint biased i believe you..., NOT! LOL!
I totally agree with you Battleaxe and very well said. I was at a cross road also to see which one might be better but I was able to permit myself to actually buy both because I saw great games coming out on both, so I just did. I have owned every Playstation to date and the PS3 60gb was the best playstation purchase I aver made. I just can`t be loyale to one console brand because I always see a game I like on another system, my loyalty will always be for games, that is my choice, and I totally respect your choice. It is all about perspective. +bubbles mate, always nice to see a great explanation like that, minus the Hate that can be pretty crazy here. edit: I`m actually offended Dante, you fail
heres' a quote from my post 1.1 "Right now Im a 360 fan".Nobody trying to fool you but yourself.
battleaxe that's pretty much what happened to me too. i saved my money for a ps3 knowing that it would have the games that i have always liked. most of those games have not come out yet. but i am only 17 and theres more to my life then gaming. but i do consider myself a gamer. and i dont need to own every system to be one. not all of us have the money. every smart buyer has brand loyalty. and sony is the Toyota of gaming. playstation brand = camery. i cant say they are perfect. my launch ps2 died and i had to buy a slim. but when it comes to gaming no one does it better than sony. and once someone does i will support them. and if i had the money i would buy the other systems. now that the 360 is more reliable. and i want to try twilight princess for the wii.
FACT: God hates console fanboys. Edit: looks like I can't attach images for reason >.< http://www.ctrlaltdel-onlin...
Well, you should thanks people bought the system at launch. That is how 3rd parties decide if they are supporting the system or not. If people that waited like you. 3rd parties will not invest money in to making games for the system. I don't understand why you wait. You look at the offering of the console and decide which to buy. :)
the reason people disagree with you is because of your statement "I find myself defending the 360 most of the time, because the rabid idiocy of some of these folks is just flat wrong." The door swings both ways.
Ive read all the comments in this thread here and it seems pretty obvious that some ppl are hiding behind niceties when you can tell they are fanboys themselves.Ive been gaming since 1984 if i remember correctly ,so i have been gaming a while now but still i have brand loyalty to specific companies such as nintendo,sega and sony for a few reasons but the main 2 are well made hardware and good games to play.What i dont get is people who have brand loyalty to ms xbox they have made 2 consoles in there life span and both did everyone wrong but still there are ppl who would kill there own mothers to defend it.If fanboys prevent you from buying a console then POG or firstknight would of been the downfall of the xbox to you.Then theres the people who say i got the xbox because the ps3 has no games i wanna play ,the funny thing is there arent any games on the xbox that arent on the ps3 or have games similar so whats the point in saying that.Also the comment about noone buying launch consoles thats just plain silly if it wasnt for ppl like me and the rest that buy consoles at launch things would probably be alot different i have bought every system at launch except for xbox and its not because im a fanboy because i bought the wii,psp,ps2,ps,snes,nes,megadr ive,master system,gamegear,gameboy (all of the different ones),DS,N64 and the gamecube all at launch because i like games but i what i dont like is microsoft and how they exploit ppl making everything they do half arsed and shoddy i cant make myself buy a console from them because if i do im supporting there wrong doings and saying its all right to do this to us.Ill always be a sony fan but not a fanboy bacause they have given me the best years of gaming i have ever had from any company, playing finalfantasy 7 was a highlight thats for sure then the first tony hawks games and metal gear solid.Ive found with sony i cant ask for or want anything more because they have it all.
Aside from sony not replacing DRE-ed PS2s originally, I have no problem with sony. I have a problem with sony fans. Their rabid, often logicless, defense of their lord and master has caused me to gain an increasing hatred of anything relating to them. Congratulations to all of you for forever tainting the company you love so dearly for a large portion of gamers.
Yes the games matter. But you know what? Other features matter too IMO. Why else would Xbox360 owners rave about Xbox Live if they could just get a PS3 and play for free? Well because Xbox360 owners just love the features, don't mind paying for it, and is the sole reason they choose xbox over playstation. While others will buy a PS3 for it's blu-ray capabilities and other media functions. So you see, it's not JUST the games. The games are 75% important in console buying decision making, but other features as well. And this stuff cant be generalized too much also. Some gamers will buy a system ONLY for the games. And some will buy it for both. And some might just buy it for hardware features alone.
its easy to tell who has always only owned one brand of console. When they get upset cause someone has a negative opinion on their company(if its relevant) then they are a fanboy. When they constantly talk about how x console or x company is evil, when they dont even have the product, they are a fanboy. When every mediocre game on their system is teh greatest, and games taht are proven to be great are crap to them, they are fanboys. Most here think im an 360 fanboy, that's cause they are Sony fanboys(or nintendo, but they wont admit this likely). I talk about the 360 cause its what I have. What do these little kids think their opinion means to real gamers? As far back as I can remember Ive been playing games. I owned (not including handhelds like GG yeah) a PC, nes, SNES, N64, PS1, DC, Ps2, xbox, and 360 in that order. I once only knew what nintendo was, then sony was the best, now I dont care, just prefer the 360 right now. The people that don't understand this are fanboys. The reason I dont like the ps3 now is because it should easily have WAY more games than it has, but that wasnt sonys focus and it shows.
mmmmmmm nice article
Dominate the Television Industry=Check Dominate the Cell Phone Industry=Check Dominate the Movie Industry=Check Dominate the Video Game Industry=Now in Progress
"Dominate the Video Game Industry=Now in Progress" In Progress? Sir with all due respect, Sony completely dominates the video game industry even if the PS3 so happens to be in third palce.
I don't like sony's cell phones but who cares lol I love their gaming platforms and tvs
can't afford it . TV - 40 w series GAMING - PS3 PHONE - W810I RECEIVER - SONY DTS 7.1
death to him
i bet u didnt even read the article ..btw nice ending xD
'Come on now, let’s not be fanboys. We can all get along' Er NOPE!!! ;-D Why would i want to 'get alone' with someone who Sl*gs off the PS3+SONY 24/7 for??? No reason to??? Did SONY Kill your whole Family??? ;-D Sounds like it!!! Death to Micro$oft sounds better!!! ;-D
They are currently being pursued by the Chinese Government,within no time their Market Worth will sink to where Enron is
what a poorly written article , the writing style is reminiscent of a middle schooler.
Really good article. I owned an xbox and ps2 last gen, no gamecube. I owned a Ps1 and n64 the gen before that. Despite my previous rants odds are I might pick up a 360 if I'm in the middle of a gaming drought on the PS3 and want some new games. I might pick up a wii too and just buy the old gamecube games since I missed out. People are really ignorant to just how deep the pool of games really are.
NES, SuperNes, N64 Genesis, Saturn, Dreamcast 360 PS1, PS2, PS3 i had to send my ps3 in for exchange with Circuit City so i'm contemplating getting another 360 since i don't have my original anymore. it may be three weeks before i get my ps3 back. but with all the rumors of a possible price drop i might just wait a little longer. maybe i'll just get me an iPhone today and be patient.
well, it's all about the games. i don't think that sales numbers are important as long as good games are coming. both systems get a lot of good stuff this and next year.
Yeah I thought the whole point of looking at the sales numbers each week was to make sure your game console was selling. Which really was done so that you can be sure that developers will be interested in your console. I think at this point every console is getting it's share of dev support. I think people spend so much time using these games as ammunition for console war arguments that they really miss out on the depth of the games we have available and just how far we've came from last gen already.
His points about Sony winning this console Generation were right on the Mark,Microsofts only remaining option right now is to quickly execute the failing Xbox Brand
i guess im with paul here, somewhat. theyve just failed to deliver this gen. ps1 and ps2 were amazing must have consoles, the ps3 not so much. at leased its first 2 years.
Gamers care about games and stock holders care about sales. Sadly this site caters to stock holders I guess.
At times I think you are right. This site has more articles bashing systems, then anything else it seems.
I have finally found a news item with intelligent 'gamers' in it, good to hear guys. I have owned nearly ever console since the atari 2600. Nes, Snes, Gamboy, GB Advance, N64, Master system, Mega-drive, Mega-CD, Dreamcast, PS1, PS2, Xbox, Gamecube, Wii, 360. I will probably be getting a PS3 soon(ish) just waiting for a few more games to grab me, looking forward to LBP especially :) I used to be about games, now it's about only supporting one console, It's funny how people think these massive corporations give a damn about them.
I started out being an Nintendo fan,i owned a nes, snes and an n64. Along the way I also owned a sega genisis. Once the PS came out and started to offer games that were more to my liking as my tastes matured I made the switch to Sony and that is were I have stayed. Im not into gaming enough to justify a purchase of all three but I definately see the quality offerings of Nintendo and MS. I have borrowed a 360 just to play gears and if the price keeps coming down along with the risks associated with the hardware I will probably own a 360 one day.
With their current momentum I can see why this is looking more of a reality with each passing day
Agreed, Xbox is sure to become the new dreamcast.
New dreamcast? Sir with all due respect, MS has allready been there with the original xbox.
To want one console to rule the industry, is to want the industry to fail.
I always knew you guys were idiots but your all fu<king nuts ! You guys really think xbox is gonna go under ? More xbox's, higher attachment rate, better online service, better games,and you clown's think Gaystation's gonna win. I'm not even saying Ps3 won't eventually catch up in sales but to say xbox is done. You guys are FU<KED UP IN THE HEAD !!!!!!!!!!!
I just bought a Ps3 because I owned PS1, PS2, and I wanted some Ps3 games I could not get on the Xbox360. Right now it doesn't look like I've made a bad choice. I do not hate the xbox360, believe me if I could buy one I definelty would.
Yeah, the ps3 is a good console. I wouldn't miss out on the 360 either, it has alot of great games as well.
in my opinion if you do your gaming on pc and are lookin for a console to buy the ps3 would be a better choice, but if you dont own a good computer an xbox would be a better choice than the ps3.
what's the point of being a fanboy now? If you dont know what's going on & havent upgraded to a ps3 that doesn't make you a xbot. That makes you broke, misinformed or have a mental disability. Its clear that the last few xbots on this site never made any sense. I dont make multiple accounts to repeat the same thing all day. Xbots never answer the hard questions. & they will use thier multiple accounts just to disagree with you. Playstation is for hi- class, hi-powered & hi-tech gaming for the advanced user. xbox360 is a toy. A generic system that turns into a parasite in your wallet. dont be fooled, xbox360 is just a fake ps3 that doesn't have bluray
that was actually a funny read.
I remember the days I was on the PS2, i would be so sucked into games i didnt even understand the term of fanboy or even heard of it, until for some reason this generation its been catastrophically high, i guess its the websites that really put it out there, for me I only stuck to one site back then and that was the sony forums and posted when i needed and asked for help when i needed, now times have changed, who knows what next gen will bring when the new consoles finally come out.
I go where God Of War is.
having said that, this generation has to be, by far, THE MOST expensive generation...lol...so naturally, consumers want to make the right decisions...and yeah, we may argue over which system is the best initial purchase...but at the end of the day, we're gamers...when the prices come down on the big 3 consoles to normal mass audience adoption levels, I bet you big money N4G will reflect that...LaChance will eventually own a PS3, CrazzyMan a 360...lol...well, even if they don't, the emphasis will more than likely be on games and not which console is the best...if the Wii, 360, and PS3 were all 100 bucks each for 24 hours starting tomorrow...I bet you money we'll have some new multiple console owners :)
I see why you have so many bubbles jcgamer. I couldn't agree more with your post above. When the prices are right, the actual gamer in the majority of fanboys everywhere will start to outshine some petty brand preference. Bubbles to ya man.
lol , yeah of course. I usually have 1 main console then I buy another one when the price is cheap or 2nd hand for the couple of exclusives I cant get on my 1st console.
and i trust Sony and i wanted the games from my PS2 days to make it to the PS3 Socom GT MGS GOW are just four out of about 10 games i wanted to see in "next-gen" Its always been about the games
you know I liked other consoles like the wii,ps2,360,ps3 and many more. but sometimes i get a console for games that i like, for example for the ps3 final fantasy and kingdom hearts games,MGS4 and a few games for ps3. same as wii. but what i like the most is 360 but that dosen't means that i hate ps3 or wii. i read the whole article for like 5 or 6 min and also argree with it. also i agree with la chance too.
I don't agree with people saying that the reason why they purchase a system is the games. Set aside your gaming mentality, and insert the character of being a WISE consumer. As a consumer of any product. Here are the list of things i look for. 1. Love at first sight. Do i really want this product? because i might change my mind after a day or two after purchasing it. 2. Price. Can i afford it? Do i save more in the long run with all the gadgets and whistle they add in? Again it's your choice if you need those extra features, but it will hurt you if you plan to purchase that extra feature separately in the future. Again it depends in your needs. Because we all know technology changes faster either we like it or not. Just like automobile, now that oil price have crank up alot of people are considering hybrid cars, pricey but well worth it. 3. Reliability of the Product. Brand name is a major factor in purchasing any product especially when it comes to electronic and automobile. Because each company has its specialty when it comes to the product that they offer. And for me paying a little more, but guaranteed to have that product last for many years is well worth it. You can have all the games...but realibility of a product is most important in my book. Just like radio or music player, bunch of music CD or downloable music are useless when your product is not reliable. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Then i add this reason when it comes to gaming. 4. Games. Again, it not the quantity of games that each console offers...but the games you grew up and love would be the definite choice here. This will be a vital role in picking your next gaming platform. In closing, lets get back to video gaming. If you loved video games buy all of the consoles by all means, but remember this is not the case as individual people are different and have different needs. Life doesn't revolve in gaming alone. Because some gamers might be content in having just one console rather than having it all, and that is vice versa. You cannot say you are superior because you have all the consoles. So you cannot compare your self to him. So it's all falls down to the 4 reasons i have listed above and not what you can buy or not.
