Stop yelling at me fools! 09/17/06
God I hate console wars. Last blog was just an observation that gimmicky prefixes tend to sell. THAT'S IT FANBOYS! ARGUE AMONGST YOURSELVES BUT LEAVE ME THE HELL ALONE! *ahem* So.... who else is starting to think they might not buy ANY of the next-gen consoles? *raises hand* Let's see Wii- Virtual Console is going to be fucking sweet for people like me who grew up with NES and SNES, plus it's a way to rectify those purchases of crappy gameshow games like Anticipation with more guided purchases of stuff like Bionic Commando I missed out on. That pluse Sega games makes this a feature with absolutely no cons considering there's definitely a lot of people selling SNES crap for way more than $5-$10 trust me. I'm not sure I understand a lot of the online stuff but it really doesn't matter since I'm not an online gamer... yet. But if I were I just wouldn't be sold on it yet. And finally, the controls have me excited for this console over the competition but, for how long? 360- There's really no reason I shouldn't want this especially with Assasin's Creed and plenty of 3rd party support bound to be lost by Sony and gained by MS. But I just can't get over my perception of boring that I have with 360... it's totally irrational but I just don't "feel" the system. PS3- Some of the stuff here looks graphically awesome, but 360 is capable of nearly the same so it'll have to look more awesome for me to get interested. I don't buy free Xbox Live for a second(and again not an online gamer) and I don't need Blu Ray so meh to the extras. So there you have it. Absolutely nothing new except that I won't buy ANY next gen consoles till next year. Zelda's on Gamecube by the way. Yeah. Oh and if PS3 was $400 I'd choose it over 360 in a heartbeat. But since its $600 I'd choose 360 over IT in a heartbeat. Who's with me? Let's play the waiting game! Yeaaaaaah!
