Microsoft reverses stance on XboxOne

Recommended Posts

some games are up to and exceeding 20 gb

 

Since this thread is mainly about console games, I'll use two as an example. Ni No Kuni was a 25GB download and Uncharted 3 was a 40GB download.

I had a Xbox, PS2, Dreamcast (still in my parents attic somewhere), and play my 360 still. I'm ticked that MS even tried this, I was going to get a PS3 until Sony removed PS2 support. Sony was making killer profit from PS2 sales while the PS3 was struggling early.

 

There's exclusives for each different system that I would love to play, but I won't invest that much money into having 2-3 consoles + PC gaming.

But I have decided to sit this gen out. No PS4 or Xbox One(Eighty). And I really don't care for Nintendo. If I had time, I would love to get the Kinect developer kit and try some stuff on the PC.

 

But PC gaming >>>> console gaming. MODs to strategy/FPS/etc... create great games, many times much funner than the original develops version. I miss Unreal Tournament Mods.

 

Sony didn't pull PS2 backwards compatibility to force people to buy both consoles, they did it in order to reduce the price of the PS3 by dropping a feature that most people didn't care about.

Why do people insist on bringing PC gaming into EVERY console related thread.  Nobody cares.

 

Why do people insist on bringing gaming onto inferior platforms?  I used correct punctuation.

I have a computer capable of playing all the latest games, not everybody does.  Consoles are way cheaper than buying a gaming rig.  Not everybody knows how to build one on their own, and most people couldn't be bothered.  Computers are for porn and consoles are for gaming; learn it, live it, love it.

Individual tastes. loved PC gaming when I was younger. stopped caring when I did a lot of traveling... gaming on a laptop? F that.

but someone always has a console. so I shifted over to console gaming. I only enjoy RTS games on PC now. definitely more of a console fan

i could get a gaming computer right now that would play next gen games, have 1tb hd, and you don't have to pay to use your games online for 600$

 

i paid less than 800$ for my i7 gaming rig, but i wanted something nice

 

so...cheaper?  only if you're buying a nintendo.

Yeah with the price of the Xbox one, combined with the cost of games (PC gaming is much cheaper, usually cheaper brand new for games and they also get marked down WAY quicker), doesn't make it THAT much cheaper.  I guess a decade ago maybe, but not now.  

 

That being said, there is a place for both.  I prefer sports on console (usually), and a good deal of those games don't even hit PC (although I have put over 100 hours into nba2k13 on pc using xbox controller to play).  Shooters can be fun on there too, especially if you sit all day at the PC for a job and want to sit on your couch to game.  I wouldn't even try a FPS on PC using controller if you want to be the best you can be.

 

But I love PC for the ease of access for Indie games.  For strategy and RTS games.  Etc.
