Forums - Gaming Discussion - Which Company?

Who's hardware do you most want to buy for gaming if they enter the hardware race?

Apple 1 2.08%
 
Nintendo 23 47.92%
 
Microsoft 1 2.08%
 
Sony 20 41.67%
 
Google 3 6.25%
 
Total:48

Ok, so with GDC right around the corner and Google seemingly poised to enter the gaming hardware race in a big way, which company would you prefer to buy gaming hardware in the future from? I'm throwing Apple into this because I think it would be crazy for them not to join if Google and Microsoft are having at it.

 

Obviously Apple and Google don't have the exclusive advantage like the Big 3 do, but they would get exclusives no doubt plus they have the benefit of having devices that can easily interact with phones and smart home devices. This is flash polling, whatever your gut tells you!

I don't trust Google or Apple farther than I can throw them. I'll probably always be Nintendo first for their exclusives, then PC or PS4 as I can afford them for their exclusives and PC's specs. If Microsoft branches out Game Pass onto Switch, I'll get it there. The two supposed newcomers can fuck off.



Apple tried a gaming console before and ummm...yeah...



most will vote for nintendo because theres like 90% nintendo fans on this site and the rest are sony and microsoft fans. if i can only choose one hardware it would be the playstation



Sony, obviously.

But why even have a poll like this? It's not as if anybody's going to pick apple/google for anything other than a joke.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Same here.

Btw, Apple ain't exactly a newcomer to the console market. They made one before - one of their biggest flops that is!

Also, is it just me, or did Sony copy the controller design when they announced that boomerang controller for the PS3 pre-launch?



Way to embedded in Nintendo and Sony's eco-system at this point. No interest  whatsoever in Apple or Google

Nothing to see here, move along

Mostly Intel and Asus, thank you.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Apples not really new to gaming consoles . They entered console gaming before Microsoft back in the 90's with Apple pippin console they're more like a console comeback .
