It's not ResolutionGate.
It's not the DRM and subsequent reversal
No, it's not even that "Power of the Cloud" distortion thrown in your faces.
It's the fact that for millions of XBox-only gamers, they have been given literally nothing else to be excited about in the year 2013. For the cost of having some unfounded hatred for Sony and Nintendo, the last real notable game to come to the XBox only has been this:
Widely regarded as a lower-scoring B-Team version of the franchise. It is very little wonder that the hand full of die-hard XBox supporters here in this forum and many others are parroting the vaunted "superior launch line up of the XBox One" as if that is a massive feather in their cap. Oh, indeed, DriveClub got pushed back from launch which is oh-so-convenient to point out at each and every possible turn but it belies an often unstated point.
What if Sony decided to roll back it's development resources for the past two years to focus only on the PS4 launch? If the Playstation simply decided to roll up the carpet and call it a day after Ni No Kuni launched this year? I dare say that it is that Sony has given you a reason to keep playing your PS3 in 2013 than it is for them to have front-loaded a console launch day to a game-starved fanbase. They literally treat the gamer like a little forest creature they can smoke out of a hole at their beck and whim.
TLDR version: It's probably a good thing the PS4 is coming with an HDMI cable, because after all the bickering the XBox fanbase did over the PS3 not coming with one (well, at least on the forums I visited at the time), at least Sony really is giving you a reason to keep the PS3 plugged in. Transversely, what is the best you will do with a 360? Plug it in through the HDMI-in port for giggles for a while and then it will end up in your garage eventually? Don't lie to kick it. We really know the score.
