The new age of gaming arrives this November, and the fight between Sony and Microsoft for next-gen supremacy is on.
Should we as a gaming community buy into the new consoles?
Short answer, no.
Long answer, nope!
The reason why is because Microsoft and Sony don’t really know what they are doing.
Microsoft is so busy changing every single policy on the One that it’s only a matter of time before they announce that you can play Xbox One games on the Xbox 360. And Sony only seems to know how to make jokes at the expense of Microsoft.
Plus, where are the original, unique games? Everything shown so far is either a port of a soon-to-be-current gen game or some crappy tech demo. Why pay the huge price tag ($400 for the ps4, $500 for the One) to play what we can already access?
The Nintendo WiiU, 3DS and Playstation Vita all recently dropped prices and redesigned their consoles. It’s a nice to know that the gaming industry takes a turd shower on your face for wanting to be the first to buy a new console.
No new intriguing games. Console re-designs, and price cuts probably coming in a year. Is there anything else to knock down about going next-gen?
Oh yeah, Grand Theft Auto V, which released Sept. 17.
It has a huge single-player cinematic experience. It features a robust online mode that allows you and your friends to gang up and hit up endless virtual liquor stores. And it’s exclusive to the PS3 and Xbox 360.
So there you have it. Instead of making the hard choice of PS4 or Xbox One, spend a smaller amount on the remaining great games that will be gracing our current-gen shortly.
Your wallet will thank you in the end, amigo.
