Of course, Sony consoles are reliable, have a giant library with a lot of quality games distributed in a wide variety of genres that easily appeal to all ages. Its the whole package, its hard to leave behind a product that good. Either way, in every gen since the ps1 I've always had a Playstation and another console (usually from Nintendo) since Ive always felt - In my personal experience - console wars are moronic, you miss on a lot when you marry yourself to a brand/platform.

Are you saying there should only be one console or that people should buy all the consoles? If the second:

1) Many, if not the vast majority, can't afford multiple.

2) Many can, but don't want to clutter up space with multiple devices, wires, and controller sets (me).

I literally did not suggest anything to anyone, which is why I remarked my comment is only based on my personal experience, since I have no issue with either points you make - which are valid points. 



Around the Network

Well, they are the most consistent.

With Xbox, their brand took a hit with the X1's dodgy launch and how poorly their PR team handled it. There's hardly and notable games on the system either, sadly.

Nintendo are incredible, but their audience seem to be more casual than anything else. I think the Wii U's poor run showed that.



As PC and Playstation guy with abit of Nintendo spice. I can say i agree with this research because ;

For PC fan, PC are made by many platform, they consist of many hardware and software company stick together creating your own platform and you pick and choose whatever you like. PC is a self platform and agnostic , some PC gamer support AMD , some support Intel, Nvidia. PC gamers never loyal to one hardware as long it's worth the price they will buy it.

Playstation or console in general is more easy to be loyal, because it's consist on one platform , one hardware, and one store and one community. All gamer experience are dictated by one company and one single brand.



I knew that since 2006. PS3 in its early years had no business selling as much as it did with all that bad PR. Only after MGS4 did it really earn its numbers imo



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles. 

 



My prediction in 2021.

SW: 30m

PS5 16m

XBS: 7.5m

Around the Network

I'm a console slut in an open relationship with Nintendo.

They're my first choice as I adore their first party stuff, but I'll sleep around with Xbox and Playstation when they offer games that appeal to me; last gen for example I picked up a 360 to play games like Bioshock and Bayonetta that I was fascinated by but couldn't get on Wii.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

The only company I hate more than Sony and MS is Nintendo when they're being dicks.

Haha. Soon changed their tune. I remember when Switch was behind VR and now it's 1% behind PS5.

Then we are in agreement. I extend my digital hand to shake yours.
