Let’s add it up here shall we. Ps4 now up 2.1 million in the U.S alone now and Xbox one 2.1 million world wide now. This is amazing people. I don’t care which side you ride with. It doesn’t matter. Both companies are doing an amazing job and have on their hands one great system regardless of name brand on the machine. I am so happy right now. I feel like a proud father watching his son get married. I am so stoked about gaming people and feel blown away at all the goodness going around. We even have both companies playing nice against each other. No bad mouthing each other’s in commercials seen this generation so far either. I remember a little while ago the world said console gaming was dying or getting replaced by mobile phone gaming( even before this I said that was a freaking joke). So many so call experts and tech writer claiming people shouldn’t buy the next gen system and or best of all, that the Wii u is somehow a better system and will beat them. Oh, wait……. I’m still laughing at that last one, sorry. The Wii u is at a mere 5 million units , ps4 and Xbox one are already at half of that in less than 3 weeks. It’s not even going to be close wii u fans, I’m sorry. But my point is not to down the Wii u but to make sure people keep them in their respected positions and market they are for. The Wii u isn’t the next gen system category , it the past gen category. None of their specs were put into place to combat the ps4 or Xbox one. They were put into place to compete against the ps3 and Xbox 360 even though they failed at that as well. They will have their fans but these people won’t compare to the followers of the playstation and Xbox as a whole much less their new and approved next gen consoles. But leave it up to the media to try their best to make a story out of nothing. When all this stuff is settled after Christmas you will see a very strong start to the next gen of gaming. One that will shut up the mouths of the haters and open up the eyes of those that are blind. Long live gaming!!!
It should not surprise me but I am again. I can’t believe I hear so many people complaining about ps4 and Xbox one. Now don’t get me wrong I’m not talking about the legit issues but the issues that are just flat out stupid and have no merit. Take the ps4 for example. I’m sick of hearing people complain about lack of games. Lack of games??? Are you kidding me? Here is a clue people; you do understand that every game rather third party or first party games are still ps4 games. You spend your day complaining about first party titles when you have tones of games for third party companies as well. These are still games for your ps4 people!! You can’t be that stupid to think that third party games don’t count because they aren’t exclusives. Please tell me you have more maturity and have more common sense than that people. This is the best and biggest console and game launch ever but yet people will find a way to complain. Just be honest, it doesn’t matter what launched on release day you would find a way to complain about some game that isn’t there. I have a total of 10 games and love them all. If you refuse to acknowledge the sure plethora of games you just want a excuse for yourself to either justify to yourself that you shouldn’t have got the system or that you want something else. The hardest proof of this is the fact that every single game was well informed to you prior to launch and you screamed to the top of your lungs about the ps4 then and nothing has really changed now other than you finally have the system. I knew what the ps4 was going to be. I remembered what the network was like. I didn’t have overblown hopes about the system or its network operation. This is why I guess I am very thankful first , very pleased, and very entertained daily by my ps4 and every , say EVERY SINGLE game I have. There is absolutely no game I have that I don’t have fun playing or don’t find myself in sure joy when I see all that it is. I feel sorry for those of you who are messed up to the point you can’t find enjoyment in your life by your simple blessings because there are many out there that don’t even have a new console period and all you can do is find fault in it because of your greed and ungratefulness. Do yourself a favor return your system or sell it so somebody in the world that doesn’t have the system can have a chance of getting it and being happy with it like I am.
Hype or love? Simply put, are you seeking what you love in gaming or are you seeking merely to be apart of the majority? This is the question I ask all today. Too many of us buy things because it’s the most talked about, most sold, or the most hyped and not based on our needs and wants. It is there that we find ourselves buying more than what we need and buying double because chasing what is popular is never consistent and so we rely on the moment to make a choice that should be there for us for at least the next 6-8 years. Where does this leave us? Getting this console and then getting the other and then the next and back again to the first. Too many of use fail to really remember what it was that made us buy the system of our choice the first time because it wasn’t based on us but based on what others said or had. Personally I wrote down so many pros and cons charts I am scared to even reveal the number of them. Point of it was that I didn’t take my choice lightly. I knew that I wasn’t going to split this generation up because they were too close to one another. So double buying both made no economic sense because unlike last gen there was a clear difference in third party titles in both resolution and frame rate, almost double in some cases and then first party titles serving the exact opposite results. I knew I was going to devoted to one direction on a system this generation. It took so long to work out enough difference that mattered to me but once I did it was easy choice. But I am not like others out there and it is those that I seek to encourage to make your choice smart and careful. Stay away from hype like “40% more powerful” and “cloud graphics”. While these things are what each use to try and convince you, understand they are useless to you or I unless we are programming and even those people find a way around these things and some how produce great games regardless. Again, the results on the tv screen matters not the hype. Lastly remember there is no right answer or wrong answer if it comes from you. You are the gamer, make the choice based on that and you will be fine.
