several hours later and I’m still grumpy about the XBone
|—||I can’t believe this sentence was uttered (via voiceofwind)|
man I’ll be honest, though, I’m not a fan of either Sony or Microsoft right now
I’m crossing my fingers Valve’s first console comes out next year and blows ‘em all out of the water, because out of all the big developers they seem to be the ones who give most of a shit about a) making quality games and b) the consumer.
but in good news for you, apparently Sony’s stock went up 9% in the last hour omfg
this whole thing sounds like such new-agey sleek chrome future-forward business appeal
“Our next console isn’t just an Xbox. It’s an Xbox for the future - an Xbox that will allow you to watch a movie while surfing the web, or connect with your friends across the world in a rousing game of Madden ‘14, or download games straight to your console from our cloud. Our next console is an Xbox that represents the interconnectivity and technological advancement of the modern era of gaming, and proudly represents the future of the industry. Our next console… is the Xbox One.”
okay Microsoft you can send me my check now
Yeah, I don’t doubt a lot of casual gamers are going to think that. Like, who could blame them, it sounds like the sort of fancy title you’d give a dusted-off rerelease of the first Xbox. I know if my mom was going to buy one she’d be thinking the PS4 sounds a lot newer and stronger so?!
And then you’ve got the hardcore fans jumping ship and fleeing to PC because of always-online and clouds and share buttons and insta-uploads and no used games and whatever the fuck
“hey I found my old Xbox in the basement, you wanna come over and play some shit?”
“Like… 1 one, or One one?”
“what the fuck is wrong with you”
