I've already decided what I'm going to do next generation. I'm going to get a Wii U because Nintendo does interesting things on the hardware front, they set themselves apart from the competition and have great first party titles. I'm going to invest in a gaming PC because I want the best of the best and consoles simply cannot offer that, no matter how hard they try they're always poor in comparison.
For that reason alone if Microsoft and Sony decide "We're making more of the same", count me out because I honestly don't give a crap. I'm done playing a poor mans gimped PC for a console. I'm done playing third party games at 15FPS. I'm also done trying to find something to like that's made in house by Sony and Microsoft when neither offer anything great. Yeah, Uncharted is great but if you don't like third person shooters what are you left with? Resistence? No thanks. Infamous? Meh. LBP? Eh, no. The ones I just mentioned aren't even amazing or top quality, they're only 'good' - that's nice and dandy but I'm looking for more.
Microsoft you say? Well, if you don't like Halo, Fable or Forza you're **** out of luck. It's okay they've got this though:
No thanks bruh.
Why does it seem like Nintendo is the only one who 'gets it' about making a console? Sony and Microsoft really don't understand, being just like everyone else isn't going to get you very far. Granted, Microsoft understands this with Kinect but the execution has been absolutely terrible.
So you Sony and Microsoft fans might be happy buying a new Playstation or Xbox, but I sure as hell won't be if they just follow conventions.For all you people who aren't fortunate enough to discover the difference between PC and consoles, it's like this:
So while Sony and Microsoft try to fight it out to be second best, I'll be enjoying my Gaming PC and Wii U unless they actually wake up and decide "Hey, we finally get it". When that day comes, I'll be back on the Playstation and Microsoft front. Until then, nada.
And no, this:
Does not count as being 'different'. They really need to do a lot for them to make me give a damn and to get to the same success level as Nintendo has with the Wii and will probably get with the Wii U.
