I am not excited about the next generation of consoles. This is not just some Microsoft hate spiel because of their dreadfully boring conference. On the flip side, I will not be licking Sony's boots either because they have just as much crap going for them in my eyes. Nintendo looks nice but their archaic business is beginning to wear more than just a little bit thin. With all of this news of new consoles and games, I'm completely underwhelmed and I hold no enthusiasm towards the immediate future.
I'm just going to stick to my PC and be done with it. Exclusives that may
be good can wait and most are hardly worth being excited for anymore, if they ever were. Multi-platform titles have had far less shit PC ports in recent years. Factoring in the potential cost of the new consoles from Sony and Microsoft, I can get by with my current rig and probably only have to spend two or maybe three hundred dollars to upgrade to surpass a console generation that isn't even wholly publicly available for purchase yet. That is what I call sad.
It's sad for a lot reasons, but mainly because at the end of the day, we as a consumer and we as a game playing culture lose. We lose to charts and graphs, to number projections, and to men in impeccably sharp suits. Nothing was gained, everything was lost.
...Okay it's not that
bad, but it's still pretty disheartening to see the industry making moves like this.
