Tim: Last week we reported on a survey that ranked what mattered most to console buyers but not everyone agreed with the survey. In fact, N4G readers had some strong opinions of their own that were at times very different than the initial survey.
Top quality diverse games
Games Great price Graphics Convenience Controller
Backwards Compatibility Free Online but sadly it's in the past
^this, 100% agree
@Nu Backward compatibility is a great value added feature and is a system seller at the start of the console generation but it becomes less important if it is introduced a few years down the time track. For backward compatibility to work the player must have the original game or pay for a new or second-hand version. BTW. Unless you are careful used DVD games are very much more prone to scratching than Bluray disks.
New games to be exact. For example. I don't need backwards compatibility in my NEW console because i probably have my OLD console. Who keep the games, but not the console?
The most important reason why people buy consoles is because of exclusive games that you really want to play. That's never going to change.
Some crazy half naked lady was running through the back alley of a local McDonald's the other day.
No. It's convenience. Always has been. Exclusives are nice, people buy consoles in general because it's easy.
Two troll replies, one rational response, and one response that makes no sense. Interesting.
It needs the witcher 2 on it or it is no buy Xbox 1 has bc with Witcher 2 while u guys need 2 wait 4 psnow to add the ps3 version of the game...
Good games Good graphics Good controller. Just like ABC
A great and diverse line up of games obviously.
For me it's diverse lineup of games. I don't care for shooters or sports games so variety is number 1 for me. Graphics are nice but ultimately it's not that important. I would rather have a game with a fun, unique or engaging story than a game that is visually stunning.
The answer is in the question. GAMERS want GAMES.
NFL app TV apps Netflix Motion Control Gimmicks 4D graphics https://media.tenor.co/imag...
60 fps on all games
So a PC?
60 fps on all console exclusives*
I want an Xbox 360 with Scorpio Graphics and USB controller ports that support all USB controllers. And I want my entire library accessible from OG Xbox, 360, and One. Simple.
Game library, multiplat graphics and performance, ecosystem, controller preference and price are some of the considerations people have when making a console purchase.
Who are real gamers ?
well you wont find them here
how do you figure? I've been gaming for about 25yrs. Speak for yourself Looks like you're some Nintendo guy well have fun.
BlackTar187 So a nintendo guy is not a gamer?
@Kun_ADR But also the idiot fanboy is attacking people from the start. So you can guarantee people will get defensive. Kids has some of the dumbest views and supports some of the dumbest things. Shouldnt let anything he says bother anyone.
@Utalkin2me Yeah me being 22 years old turning 23 next month and been gaming since SNES, N64 and PS1. Even going back and researching, learning and playing older games as I grew up. Yeah I definitely not a gamer. Yeah N64 and PS1 not being the golden age of gaming yeah I am definitely not a gamer.
Arch enemy of "fake" gamers.
-Big lineup of excellent exclusive games -Comfortable controller -Consumer friendly price -Simplicity -Strong 3rd party support
Games, lots of them, lots of genres , good quality games. Basically a PS4
real gamers on n4g ha
Finished polished not bug ridden games that require a huge patch! Gameplay.. Story Graphics Sound Something fresh (even if it is a take on something I. I'm used to)
"real gamers"?!? As opposed to all the imaginary people playing games on their consoles?
As opposed to anonymous survey respondents
Anonymous survey respondents who didn't play games still wouldn't be "gamers" so using real to quantify this is redundant by that logic... So who are the "Real" gamers?
Ah yes. The reference is to N4G users, who are presumably actual gamers (why would they be here otherwise). I get it now.
Games Price Convenience Power A reliable platform to game on And tons of RPGs (personal preference)
Single player campaigns that do not hold your hand and have smooth gameplay mechanics .
1. Game machine 1st 2. Not gimicky/overpriced 3. Not a gen or 2 behind upon release 4. Traditional console or hands down better 5. Traditional controller or hands down better 6. Traditional online infrastructures 7. 1st AND 3rd party games 8. A company that knows when a series is ready for the shelf instead of the same game over and over and over... 9. A company that takes risks and makes new i.p.'s 10. Last but not least... Everything else... Apps, u.i., speed switching between apps...
I want her to be hot, intelligent, athletic, have a great personality, like horror movies, love dogs and dig gaming. Oh wait, we're talking consoles,... pretty much what everyone else said.
It all matters anyone who says otherwise doesn't know ether.
A PS4 Pro
Something they have never seen before.
