The same people telling you old games don’t count on PC would be happily including old Playstation games if PS4 had BC.
When you build a new gaming PC one of the best parts is firing it up and installing loads of classics on it. Not possible on some consoles, of course they’d disallow it.
Nope, there are PS1 classics, PS2 remakes and PS3 remasters on PS4. I bought and platined some of them on original platform and on PS4, but those are a handfull of games.
PS3 had BC last gen until Sony saw that the extra cost didn't brought extra revenue and cut it out. So that pretty much show that listing BC games to pad list war is laughable. You may love some or even all of the previous gen games, but a very very very small number of people would buy new consoles for the intent of playing old games they already had console to play it on.
I assembled my PC about a month ago, haven't installed a single game on it, and it certainly can handle classic games.
My responses in bold. Please stop with the multiple quotes on top of quotes on top of quotes. Just quote me once, and then respond to it all. It makes it very difficult to even respond to you.
You can't read a book in Japanese only knowing english, DRM.
10 people can't read the same book at the same time, DRM.
More than half of the released PS4 games in 2017 + 2018 didn't have a retail release. Are you denying that?
Over 1400 games were released on Switch so far: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Nintendo_Switch_games
Only ~250 of them did have a retail release: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1FNyvbbU64Pb9lheg28gC_5fMalIYJ0aD763T7M1QqF0/edit#gid=0
Are you denying that either?
And how often does a blue moon happen?
GPU driver updates on PCs aren't that more frequent... and they are optional and not mandatory to keep online functions alive.
Most other driver updates happen in the background.
That is less than once a month, I can certainly keep up with this much easier than my windows that decides to do auto update and restart even when that option haven't been accepted. Anyway PS4 update is very fast, but certainly I wouldn't have any problem keeping up the original one or even making it even bare.
Guess how many of digital only games I buy? I can with reasonable confidence say that more than 90% of my playing time is done on AA or AAA retail game, and even if I'm missing some great A or Indie games digital only I wouldn't even have the free time to play them.
I think he still has a point in regards to PC-gaming. Just look at the top 10 most played PC-games, quite a few of them are older than 5 years.
And you can still play your games on the original console, I keep my consoles since NES gen, but rarely I play them. They are certainly classics and good to play from time to time, but on the broader view they are neglible on making listing war.
PC gaming is the most curious thing ever, I know to many people that put more than 1k USD in a rig to play DoTA. For me that is asinine use of money but they want some over 200fps even if the graphics will keep being terrible.
His definition of DRM is a little bit strange but his "Physical is DRM" line is kinda true.
Nope it isn't kinda true. Digital Rights Management of the physical media is the part that can prevent you from pirating it, not the part that prevent you from using on a different console. Unless you want to call DRM the fact a cobol program can't run in access as is or that someone that reads english only can't read a document in swedish.
