Feedbackula - Future Console Hate Speech!
- Feb 1, 2013
If rumours are to be believed, we're on the verge of seeing a whole new generation of consoles - so obviously PC and console gamers are going at each other tooth and nail. Find out what they're saying, why not?
I own both the ps3 and 360. While I like the ps3, my gaming experience does feel a bit limited on it. I still think both systems are great, I just feel like I can do more on the Xbox. PC gaming: too pricey. Too many tech issues that can happen, then you have to have your rig worked on. PC gamers really do need to get off their high horse though and yes, open the mind a bit. And when you buy a top of the line PC, it's not long before the specs start drifting to the back burner and rapidly become obsolete. Then you get to.... ah, my favorite word, upgrade! Pull out this, replace that, dropping more cash in to the tower. Oh and it's best that you learn how to do all that yourself, or else it's trips to the local computer store or finding someone who knows what they are doing and taking the risk. No thanks to all that noise. I'm not a lazy gamer, just a practical one.
For some inexplicable reasons, I am eating toast since I watched this video... And I can't eat anything else now but toast... TOAST...
Losing interest in gaming with the state of the industry. Prolly won't get a next-gen console.
Also, toast makes you fat.
Man I love this show. It's like the sole purpose is to hate on the trolls that lurk in every corner of this website.
hmm...i love the exclusives on the xbox and ps3, even though ive only played them at my friends house. but the big reason why i like pc more is because of strategy games. but i guess that community is so much smaller than the rpg and shooter communities
You're absolutely right. That is the only viable gaming platform. The others are just a complete waste.
After reading your comment I suddenly heard in my head that song by the YMCA In the Navy... Oh the maddness!!
Good job Johnny, though you seemed a bit low on vitriol this week, I'd make a haircut joke if I didn't also have the sides of my head shaved off...
As for Harry John Pepper, as someone who works in the illustration industry I just wanted to give a heads up, in that you really need to set up a website for your work if you want to get commissions, an keep it constantly updated! Unless you have and I couldn't find it...
"Mmmm toast" "Must eat toast" "toast with pineapple jam & butter" "yum toast" .... "ergh um I'm sure I came here for games why do I feel so hungry.... for TOAST!"
@bmart970 Because people have to act like 4 yr olds and argue about anything and everything instead of just liking what they like and letting others do the same.
wait what??????? consoles more superior to PC. HAJAAHAHAHAAAHAH XDXDXDXD.
I have both pc and ps3 and i think the pc has more games and looks better. And quality games made only on consoles is also false.
Guys, remember Crysis.
@hull20004 Crysis? I thought the sequel went multiplatform.. Also FPS suck big way, so who cares. What about games like Red Dead Redemption or GTA V, then?
@slainta @hull20004 Every F**king system has its own exclusives. You guys are a bunch of Vaginas!!! In case you have not realised the best games to play are the ones that were developed for a specific system. Why because they are spending all there tine making one game Not 3 or 4 shit ones. Well Diablo 3 sucked balls tho.... so maybe not always true.
@hull20004 Careful with the ranting, or you'll end up on Feedbackula.
The thing with console is the convenience of it. PC's are just not simply plug and play. Yes, PC's are more powerful if you compared the best of the best, but not everyone has the top of the line, or even mid of the line PC's. PC building is cheaper than it use to be, but some people just don't want to deal with or have time to build one. On top of that, some people do not have the space or even want to make space for a PC, Laptops would be the alternative, but they too, suffer from not being able to really upgrade it, although you could do more than you could with a console.
Consoles have their purpose, and I doubt it will die out, but rather merge into a proprietary PC (I know it is like that now, but I mean even more so than now), where you will get most of the basic functions of a PC, but has exclusive things about it to make it more appealing to all audiences, plus the gimmicks that only work for consoles (see Nintendo WII MS KInect PS Move)
pc's are superior, simple, but you have to spend a fortune, better frame rates, but usually with minimal difference from the console versions. Spend 400 quid on a console and get a medium to high spec pc equivalent game or spend 1000 quid and run everything on ultra at 55 frames (at present), along with your os utilities.
@itchyflop You make your money back with cheaper games >.>. Although pre-owned is a valid argument. that might be stopping with the PS4! I personally enjoy the build, but I''m an IT geek who does it for a living. The issue I have is that the console doesn't stay medium to high spec for very long and the Dev's are trying to go for graphical glory that is beyond the consoles capabilities.
I love my high end PC but I must admit I do get the urge for couch gaming. I'm running a sandy i7 @4.8ghz and a GTX 670 at 1300mhz and it's really good stuff. But the best memories I had as a gamer were on the SNES and the N64. Perhaps I'm growing out of it.
55frames? depends on the game and your monitors resolution and how much AA you enable. I don't think I have a game that sits at 55 frames. most are 100+.(except crysis 3 beta) 60fps is fine in my book, but I was astonished to see how fluid the jump to 120fps was with my friends monitor.
My two cents would be that PC's are really worth the effort, but you have to really love games to invest the money. And as my love for the SNES and N64 proved to me, you can have more fun on a lesser system if the game is right.
Some people are just trolls... Welcome to the internet. It's not that hard to understand. You can be passionate and immature at the same time, and I think that tends to be the case in which you speak of.
Like most people I have a PC and console. Both do their thing well. I only game on the PC for Eve Online, and the Total War series. No console has anything even close to either game. But PC gaming has always been hit and miss- and the simplicity of slapping a disk into a machine meant just for it ultimately wins my trust. Simply- I've bought too many games for PC that won't work, or mess up something else up even if my machine is way over the requirements. With consoles, it's plug and play. If I were more of a computer guy, I might be able to eventually fix any issue with a PC game, but it's much easier to slap a disk in a dedicated console.
For the vast majority of games the ease of consoles wins out for me. But consoles just have never had the horsepower to run true strategy games like Total War, true sims like combat flight sims, or be able to run the really deep games.
PC's still also dominate the MMO market, which can't be understated. Social gaming is increasingly the trend and PC's have a jump on consoles for them.
LOL @ "i have a ps3, xbox and an alienware...worth (insert ridiculous amount here) " when u insert a price range for a pc, ur obviously compensating for something your lacking of. saddest thing is, u had to pay someone else to build a half ass pc for you. doesnt mater when it was made, alienware is always overpriced.
@scarred_fox I think typically people buy Alienware for the name more so than the product, especially after Dell bought them.
@Gonefishing95 keep dreaming i looked it up its not true they also had metro last light listed for wiiu and is metro coming to wiiu the answer is no
@emptycow @Gonefishing95 When has a GTA not been released on the PC? It'll come eventually once Rockstar spend extra time un-optimising it and make it barely run. Just like they did with GTA IV that took 7 patches to make it just about playable.
I love the games but rockstar no longer care about the PC market. I reckon we'll still see a PC poorly coded port eventually though.
