"You cant play "consumer friendly". Thats basically the short of it".
Sorry, but to me that goes A LONG way.
Companies wants your money, "consumer friendly" is just a interpretation we do on their way of doing it. If you like the service to pay the price it is friendly enough for you.
"Switch guys are happy with the games catalog they have, and the 1st party titles their getting, same with PS4 users."
And have you stopped to think that maybe, just maybe, X1 users are also happy with the catalog they have?
going by vgc they preffer x1 library that is why they have x1. what about it?
"Gamepass (good value, play A/AA games without buying them)"
Have you taken the time to look into the GamePass list? Because there are plenty, and I mean PLENTY, of AAA games in there.
"Play anywhere (ability to swap from pc to console, and have it auto-update save files ect) (doesnt work for everything right?)"
I guess not. But I wouldn't believe you for one second if you told me that you wouldn't like the ability to play God of War on your laptop when you are away at no extra cost.
I have 0 value for play anywhere and portability.
"BC (something everyone should have, but Cell -> x86, makes this basically impossible on the PS4)"
And yet PS4 and Switch don't have it, and I don't see Sony and Nintendo getting any hate for it. And No, It is not impossible to emulate PS3 games on PS4. Difficult to do it? maybe, but impossible it is not. I'm 100% sure that engineers who have access to the core hardware and OS of both consoles can figure it out if they want to. Sony didn't do it just because they did not deem the effort worth it.
PS3 had full BC for ps2 and 1, didn't brought sales and the removal of bc didn't lost sales. objectivelly doesn't matter how you feel about it.
"Also you can crap on remasters, but alot of people actually enjoy them."
I'm not crapping on remasters. I just find it curious that people are hating so much on the only company that basically offered them for free this gen while at the same time praising the companies that charged full price for straigh up ports.
remasters are more improvements than bc, also doesn't sell that much.
"Otherwise why would Switch & Playstation be selling so well instead of Xbox One?"
Sorry, are we going to switch the conversation now to "who won this generation?" Because I was just answering to the claim that "People forget that xbox basically gave up this gen, 2 years into it."
