Hi guys, I have a bit of a temperature right now, so maybe this is me just tripping, but anyway: After following the recent upswing of Console War rhetoric and being drawn into it myself with p-comparisons, threads on a few faulty ps4s, I had one of those lucid moments and thought, "What am I doing here? It helps no one, least of all myself."
The recent South Park episode seems to address how ridiculous the religious fervor is with which we defend our loyalties to corporations trying to sell us their products.
I say, it's time we got better. I'm part of a generation that grew up with gaming hardware from the 16-bit consoles onward, technology has become part of our daily lives and also a way we express our individuality. So let us act like children on a playground no more, but rather like adults with a mutual appreciation of gaming and individual ways of expressing it, all deserving equal respect.
Therefore, as someone heavily invested in Xbox game franchises with not unlimited financial resources, and thus not getting a ps4, I'd like to take this opportunity to wish anyone getting a ps4 the best launch possible with great games now and in the future. I think the console looks amazing, I really like the power bar on the side, and think the ps4 controller may even have trumped the Xbox's in design and comfort.
As for anyone getting the Xbox, I wish the same, of course. I hope none of us feel any buyer's remorse or have stressful experiences returning products, and really feel like the long wait for these consoles has been worth it.
Sony has it right, greatness does await, but it's our greatness, not the greatness of any company.
