XBOX gamers are frat boys. They're the ones who'll play games mostly because their friends play games.

Sony gamers are nerds who are likely to know more about video games than the opposite sex.

Nintendo gamers are stuck up Carlton Banks types who think they're superior and that the way they play games is the way games should be played.

/not sarcasm

Disgusting!



Will first we need some corn seed in order to make popcorn. >.>

Xbox gamers= Competitive gamers (Primarily sports and shooters)
Sony gamers= Diverse gamers but like to play storybased games in many genres. Sony takes the jack of all trades master of none route, but still has quality.
Nintendo gamers= First party enthusiasts who like party games and platformers.

Bloodborne is a co-development betwen Sony Japan Studio and From Software, just like Demon's Souls.

Sony owns Demon's Souls IP, but I dunno if it will own Bloodborne IP (probably will as well, if so, it's a Sony game).

And Uncharted multiplayer is definitely not it's focus, people buy it for the main game, just like all others and TLOU. They having a good multiplayer doesn't make it their focus at all, it's a plus.

From Software came up with the setting and gameplay for the game. aka the online co-op. Not that it matters, it would have been in there whether Sony were actually developing it or not.

Where did I say anything about it being the focus of Uncharted 4? It will be a big component of the game. That's what I said. Just like MP is a big component of Halo, yet its also got a huge universe and expansive story that many buy the game just to experience.

We can go back and forth on this all you want, someone replied laughing at the stupid notion that PS is starting to cater more to single player worlds and that's what I was agreeing with. That's clearly false. There's this myth running around that some people like to perpatuate that their fanbase has some sort of more well rounded taste in games yet you look at sales charts and it's the same shit on both consoles.

Eh, Playstation gamers have a much broader taste in games due to the fact that Playstation is big in every market where Nintendo and MS are not. 



I'm a NintendoSoft gamer - so I can't speak for myself as a one platform holder only kinda guy.

I get Nintendo for the first party/Japanese stuff - MS for the third party/superior online/Western games.

I was a Sega and Nintendo "guy" until 1995 when I went Sony - until gen 6/2002 - (when I owned XB, GC and PS2) - and found myself won over by the diversity and quality of the combined XB/GC library over the quantity of the PS2 library which was rife with quality 3rd party exclusives but lacking in first party I cared about (God Of War arrived a year or two later, by which time I saw it as an inferior/simplified Ninja Gaiden. Even preferred DMC1) - and often those exclusives would eventually show up on one of my other consoles in a superior version (GTA 3/VC/SA for example), and I'd regret double dipping.

At the start of gen 7 - the 3rd party exclusives on Sony platforms that i cared about dwindled (though I guess I still like to play MGS4 among others) - and since most of the studios Sony pacman'd up in gen 6 (ND, Guerilla, SuckerP) hadn't really got started - there were no first party IPs I really cared about for the first few years of gen 7. Though a worthy PaRappa sequel ( Lammy2? They messed up Parappa2, which probably led to my disillusionment in Sony first party back in 02) would probably have tipped me.

All said - just one guys experiences and opinions from my 38 years.

Anyway - that's basically why I'm a MS/Nintendo guy - not really an answer to the OP - so in an attempt to answer that - I'll give my impression of what each single platform "fan" likes about his chosen platform.

Nintendo guys - Love the IP. Are rarely let down in first party quality hence their loyalty. And they like a sturdy system.

Sony guys - Love anime licenses/Sony first party. Larger share of under 35s than MS. More likely Apple fans.

MS guys - Larger share of over 35s. Probably gamed on DOS in the 80s. Value system /network stability. Less likely to be Apple fans.

My opinions. All anecdotal.
