Forums - Gaming Discussion - A console made for girls. Would you buy it?

I might be wrong but aren't consoles made Unisex? I'm a guy so I'm just surprised to know that PS Move controls weren't make for females all these years. Thought they were trying to cater to the females who don't got things going on like us guy gamers :/

I'm not a girl so, no, I guess not, but I've noticed that a lot of games “aimed” at girls on, say, 3DS, appeared to be very unsophisticated, whereas girls who game want their games to be as good as the ones “aimed” at boys. Things like Animal Crossing or Tomodachi Life or Pokemon seem to have a universal appeal ... I'm not sure why you'd need a console targeted directly at one gender rather than the other.

^ same is true with God of War, or Uncharted, the Last of Us... ect.

Why wouldnt a girl enjoy a quality game? the same way as guys do? its odd to assume you need to make gender specific games or consoles.
Atleast it doesnt make sense for a older audience (imo).

This from a guy that has no issue playing the Atelier series of games (and rather enjoys it).

Atelier is hands down one of the most stressful games series to play but once you get the hang, it gets addicting. Take 4 steps and you spent one of your 365 days to get your adventure license and now you know you're screwed. I'm saying that as a male. That game is definitely more manly than kratos being Dragon Ball punched through a Beepin home to protect his bastard son



Sony did have a purple/pinkish PSP that they targeted toward teenage girls. I don't think it sold very well. I imagine most female gamers buy the same things as men. 



No, but ill buy a console made for boys

Not all or not everywhere. Just look at this Brazilian variant of the Sega Master System: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Master_system_girl_transparent.png

TBH I'm not even sure gender-centric marketing makes sense anymore, or if it did once.
Anyway I enjoy over-girly things so I probably would have invested in it if I were born 15 years earlier I guess. The sticker and video capture features sound great for '95 too.

Gender centric anything is the whole reason why we're in the mess we currently are. People have been indoctrinated that arbitrary things like colors and clothing belong to a certain gender. Defining anything that is not biological as belonging to a certain gender is the reason why everything sucks today.

Then you should probably never play Stardew Valley. It's min-maxing hell on a very short timer. One of the most stressful games I have ever played.

You could make stickers, yet it failed? What is wrong with you, women?!



Nope. I also never bought a console made for boys.

Well if it was made for girls, then probably not. That's why I don't buy clothes for women or make-up.
