So multimedia functions trumps games? Okay then.. Whatever floats your boat.

Really though, just buy a HTPC if your want a PC for the lounge. It will serve you better.

If you hadn't already picked up on it by now, he's very much against wanting to use a PC for nearly anything. He wants consoles to fully replace PC's and handle all their tasks and what not. He's used consoles to pay his bills and what not, while opting as much as possible to use them for daily computing tasks.

Literally the only guy in all the world that forces himself to use a console for what PC's have been doing for decades for daily tasks.

Nothing on this earth will convince him to actually use a PC the way average joe's do.

Did he also push for Sony to make a sequel to the vita? Could be mixing him up with some body else.

This is also why Switch literally doesn't have any of those features and judging by sales nobody in the real world gives a s**t.

If Switch can manage to reach 3DS numbers I will agree. I doubt it though. Just like Handhelds died due to Sony and Nintendos inability to offer the most basic features, I see PlayStation falling off a cliff as well. Nintendo already killed off their Home/Handheld business, and have went to a Hybrid catch all platform, to get whats left of their userbase on a single platform.

Microsoft is the only current console company looking at the long term health of consoles. Sony and Nintendo will be replaced by Apple and Google in due time, if they don't expand their platforms. 

Yes! We finally have our playstation will fall off a cliff comment! 



OP I have read your previous posts on both consoles and portables. You seem to dislike dedicated devices where their functionality is constrained by software. You can correct me if I am wrong but it seems you prefer mobile-like portables (which have hardware similar to smartphones and tablets) like Vita and Switch to be able to do gaming in addition to the functions of a smart device (lots of entertainment apps, productivity apps, and of course communications features) and you seem to prefer to stationary consoles to become like more multifunctional PCs.

Assuming what I have stated in true, I am curious as to why you do not go into PC gaming for your stationary gaming needs. PCs have support for gamepads and mouse and keyboards, most multiplats are available on PC, you have access to Microsoft's first-party titles, and even some of the console-exclusive PS4 games are on PC. The only downside to a PC is that the interface is not quite as refined, but that can be remedied for the most part with Steam big-picture. On top of that you also get access to the productivity and non-gaming entertainment apps that you like. While the Xbox is more PC-like with regards to its software (and I will say that its interface it more refined for the big screen, but that is about the only downside for the PC versus the Xbox), I still think your particular needs would be better served with an actual gaming PC.

Good, my dude. Glad to see you have chosen to follow what you like instead of brand loyalty over years of being in that same ecosystem. Do not be ashamed or peer pressured for liking Xbox. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it.

Some people can't except that. It shouldn't be your problem, it should be their problem.

Just as he's entitled to no longer accept playstation as his main platform users here are also entitled to not accept his decision. Otherwise what's the point of the thread, to be one massive echo chamber? Some people obviously can't accept that. 

Except it already has become one massive echo chamber. The OP stated their decision to switch platforms and now all the PS users are coming out with reasons to put down the OP for simply switching platforms. The only ones who are accepting OP's opinion are those who do not have PS4 as their only or main platform of choice.

Quite literally a prime echo chamber.

It really isn't OP's problem though at the end of the day, it's everyone else's for simply being tilted at his choice. They can argue their opinion, but at the end of the day their opinion will never trump or dismantle the OP's because it is their decision and theirs alone to make.

Excuse me what?

That is the saddest thing ever. Why would you not accept his decision when it is his decision to make? It ain't some cult dude.

I'm entitled to disagree with his decision. So if trump does something and people disagree are they part of a cult? Ridiculous. 

 

@chazore OK so all the big bad ps users on here are putting him down.

 

"The only ones who are accepting OP's opinion are those who do not have PS4 as their only or main platform of choice."

 

Is that any different to this? 

 

"The OP stated their decision to switch platforms and now all the PS users are coming out with reasons to put down"

 

Two sides of the same coin imo but for some reason you think one side is OK but not the other.

This is some prime spinning, Kero. Very subtle too.

There is a clear difference between disagreeing and not accepting. You accept it either way cause it already has happened, my dude. Disagreement is just talking about the reasons why. Dear lord.




Go where your heart takes you.



I totally understand this decision. I went from Xbox360 to eventually PS3 as where I buy multiplatforms, and similar reasons why I chose PS4 over Xbox One at the time as well.

I would most likely do the similar decision as you if I had Xbox One X, as in I would buy multi platform on that device. Add in the fact Microsoft has done good job lately with things I like BC, game pass and policies that don't restrict your accounts to one device. Honestly if they could fix their first party line up to the same levels as Sony/Nintendo. They would be the best out of the three of actual value.

I generally lean towards Sony/Nintendo but I don't dismiss alternatives and honestly having blind brand loyalty like some people is just asinine. It doesn't matter what, phones, consoles. You need to value what you value and make decisions on that metric.

For the first time in 20 years, I am changing my main platform. Microsoft has won me over after 17 years of hard work. They have become open, started listening to consumers, and partners. They are building a Platform, that can continually grow, and reach across the entire spectrum of electronics. They have a vision, and they have been open to the public with where they want to go. This is the company that I want to support. So starting this month my $450 a month entertainment budget is moving to Microsoft.

So, have you already bought a Windows 10 phone and a Surface tablet to get the most out of the Microsoft services and their connectivity?
