A response to the PS4k "outrage", clever. I still think the PS4k is a bad idea, you can expect this kind of upgradable hardware shit from PCs (even handhelds) but not from consoles.
Should've known you are an enemy of progress and performance when you started playing RL on PS4.
I still think that the analogy is on point and the reasons why it is not, are arbitrary at best (4 years are ok, 3 years are a crime against humanity). That's what this thread was for. Basically collecting all the arbitrary reasons to defend new hardware so I can use them later. Though it wasn't as much of a gold mine as I hoped it would be. I also hoped some cool mod would move this to Sony discussion but yet another disappointment :(
Of course I am, I'm playing Dark Cloud 2 on a PS4.
The analogy is incorrect because the PS4K is (technically) still the same console. It just comes with a resolution upgrade (or that's what the rumors say)! The NX is a completely new console with exclusive games, etc. It does come sooner than it should but hey it's Nintendo, they get a free pass from me.
Yeah, I know that you could argue that every new console is just an upgrade but that's true only for Sony and Microsoft! Nintendo always brings a new gimmick with every new console. It's far more exciting to wait for the NX than the PS5.
Anyway begone foul demon, get your arbitrary reason to defend new hardware from other poor soul. You are not getting them from me.
