Since the end of 2013 there has been a fierce battle as to who will rise victorious at the end of this gen of consoles. Visit any gaming forum and you will see a battle like no other between fans of the various gaming consoles screaming as to who they think will win this galactic war. The competition has never been fiercer and thankfully it has been to the benefit of us gamers. The slug fest (if you wish to call it that) between the xbox one and the ps4 has been a battle of epic proportions with no clear winner in sight (as long as you choose to ignore sales). One can only feel sorry for Nintendo who seems content to sit on the side-lines as they realise they just can’t compete with these two heavyweights.
Back and forth the two titans swing their fists at each other in a battle that has seen the introduction of features and games that their respective fans have been clamouring for. Determining who is winning is difficult due to conflicting reports depending on whose fans you ask. But can one determine for themselves? Is it possible to know who will win this epic battle long before the bell rings? Initially I would have said that the ps4 would reign supreme (based on being over 10miilion ahead in sales after only two years), but due to the information that has come to light I have no choice but to change my stance. I can now declare with confidence that the xbox one WILL win this gen.
I know this may come as a shock to some of you, as it was for me, but if you give me a minute to explain you will also see the logical reasoning behind this change of heart. After having many discussions online with many diehard xbox fans and observing many comment sections, I have come to realise that Microsoft has one thing that will guarantee their victory this gen that sony cannot and will never be able to compete with, leprechauns.
You see, I have come to understand, based on the many, many comments I have seen and discussions I have had, that Microsoft has a never-ending pot of gold that is kept safely in a special vault somewhere. This pot cannot be emptied and it is the source of microsoft’s wealth. I never understood before when I saw people constantly say that “Microsoft has unlimited money” , “Microsoft can afford to take a loss on hardware for years”, “Microsoft has no problem losing millions on the xbox division” and “Microsoft doesn’t mind losing millions just to beat sony”.
I never understood before why anyone would make such an insane statement, at least not until I decided to do a little digging myself to find the reasoning behind this line of thinking. You see I always thought that Microsoft and its investors actually cared about losing money and that they made their billions by doing smart business and aiming for profits. But now I have come to understand that none of that had anything to do with it. It was all because of leprechauns and their pots of gold. Thinking about it now, all that talk about investors being dissatisfied with the xbox performance was pure hogwash. That was probably a rumour started by some sony fans in order to scare major Nelson into finding a new job.
There is nothing that sony can do to combat this magic. It is widely known that sony only has about $50,000 in their bank account and that the only reason they are still in business is due to it being mandatory that all employees sell knockoff rolex watches on the side of the street on weekends. It is common knowledge that the ps4 business is supporting all other sony divisions. How else would they be able to keep open their financial services, their semiconductor manufacturing plants, the movie and music studios, the phone and television divisions and their electric vehicles and batteries departments. If it wasn’t for us gamers buying a $400 gaming console and spending 60 bucks every few months (not counting the psn flash sales every now and again) sony would be gone.
There is nothing and I mean NOTHING that sony can do to compete with those Microsoft leprechauns. It’s one thing to have a lot of money but going up against a competitor that has an unlimited supply of wealth is suicide, plain and simple. Regardless, I will enjoy my ps4 no matter how short a time we have, and I will enjoy watching to the end this epic battle of the giants, even though I know one of them will soon use the 10000000 karat gold 2x4 tucked secretly away in their trousers.
