The Master Console Race... Hint: It’s not Xbox
Leeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeets get reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaady to ruuuuuuuuuuuuuuumble!
We are inching closer to the global launch of Xbox One and PS4. The war will be great. Many shall perish. This battle is the gamer version of Bloods vs Crips. And it’s time to represent yo!
There are a lot of articles, movie stars, hipsters hanging outside the local coffee shop pushing their top console pick at us. They’ve gone to events, researched, did pro’s and con’s yadyaydaydaya that’s not what this is about.
I know games and YOU know games. Now is the time to show off your level of honor and allegiance to a console. Vote below in the comment section and pick a side my fellow gypsy gamers.
This is about trashing all the info you’ve heard about these new consoles and following your heart to the motherland. Today we shall use democracy to pick the ultimate winner. We shall rise above race, creed, sex and united stand over the weaker console with the superior console raised high above our heads like Gods.
Today, we take back the Game Verse. Are you with me?
You should know beforehand I am an Xbox guy but I think Playstation has the upper hand.
Here’s why -- note: these judgments are made on past attributes influencing my emotions (side note: Am I using the ellipsis right here? This console war has me all worked up to be sure):
For those of you out there who have siblings, friends and even the daredevil grandparent multiplayer doesn’t have that much weight for you. For that I say, shame on you! There are gamers all over the world who don’t have the luxury to play Resistance with someone. It’s not right.
Playstation made this free, which isn’t a surprise if you think about it. America buys a lot of products from China and Japan – where Playstation was birthed. It stands to reason as an act of good faith they would give us a freebie aka global access to other gamers.
Microsoft can’t do this. But they gave us Bill Gates Control-Alt-Delete design. Which for some is more than enough. Just not Gates as he recently admitted. Sigh.
Now before we throw stones at Gates be aware Playstation is joining the darkside. The buzz surrounding PS4 is much like Xbox you will need to pay to use online services. It was good while it lasted.
No it’s not Christmas already, Playstation really did feel like what was missing from their console was HD EVERYTHING to the nth degree. Yes, Xbox can play movies. But the picture quality isn’t the same.
I still remember the first thought I had when I heard this, “Jeez, here’s a gaming company that really cares about the little things I need to get through the day.”
Playstation really low balled their console beating Xbox’s price tag by nearly a Benjamin. Kind of cool if you’re on a budget and need to get your gaming fix on.
I am an Xbox guy. I have every Xbox game I ever bought I can’t get rid of them. I think the games Xbox has to offer are far more entertaining than Playstation. As I once said, I love you, but I'm not in love with you. From a gamer standpoint I can’t deny the perks Playstation offers. Perks no doubt that will increase in PS4.
The sad truth, only ONE console will be the MASTER CONSOLE.
Who do you think it’ll be?
