Your entire first paragraph, I don't really disagree with any of it. The difference with banks though is that there is no such thing as banking wars as there is with console wars. With banks, no-one cares if someone else has a bank account with a different company. There is no tribalism or aggression like we see in gaming. Same with cars. We just don't see anywhere near the level of aggression in car ownership differences. Your right, Sony's dominance in the console market is probably what allowed them to raise the price of the PS5 last holiday season, so there is already downsides showing to Sony winning. 

Even with all the disadvantages of one side dominating though, I'd rather have to suffer the consequences of a dominating console manufacturer than see the constant aggression and animosity of this console war. For me, it ruins the fun of gaming and being within the gaming culture

I'm sorry but this is a lame excuse. No one is forcing you participate in the toxic parts of gaming. These are choices you've made and same with everyone else, including myself. That's not a good reason to want there to be less competition. 

You don't have to participate in it to be affected by it. when starfield came out, I was looking forward to seeing genuine reviews and peoples genuine feelings about it. Yet all that happened was, every reviewer with an "Xbox" in their name gave the game a perfect 10/10 score, and more established reviewers that gave it a more representative score, had a mob of people that were saying they were lying about the game being average just to get clicks. No-one could have a genuine discussion about the actual game and it's features or lack of features, and that effects us all regardless of whether your involved in console wars or not
