What Do Real Gamers Want in a Console?


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.

Backwards Compatibility
Free Online but sadly it's in the past

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.

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.

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.
