It will probably be very gradual and we won't mind it. I for 1 love Patrick, if every new member is as awesome as Patrick I won't be sad at all, though I'm not sure how replaceable Jeff is.

I don't have time for games that aren't completely awesome. Sad but true.
this. Games are one of the most time consuming mediums so I can only afford(time wise) games that either get universally great reviews which I would feel bad for missing or games which I have personal favor for.
I don't assume a guy uses a hair straightener like I don't assume a girl plays games. All this talk is complete BS, I've never met a gamer girl, just facebook,tablet or phone games. I think its dumb that people keep attacking these people that assume girls don't play games because it is very likely. Just like I assume most people don't do Bird Watching as their hobby so I don't assume they do and if they told me that I would assume its a joke because its more likely they are kidding about it.
I'm sure gamer girls are real and I don't see that requiring a little more proof than taking people at their word is such a bad thing. I mean if I meet 3 girls and they all say they play core games that's a 0.1 probability event(assuming something like 10% of girls play core games).
Why not get the ultimate system? PC :P. Its probably cheaper to build a good pc than to buy all three consoles anyway. I am currently playing FF12 on my PC with a PSX emulator, I'm pretty sure most xbox games come out on PC since its microsoft. The only games I feel like I missed out on this generation were uncharted and 2-3 indy games, Dust and Journey come to mind. Though to be honest Uncharted doesn't seem like a very gameplay dependent game so I feel like I got 90% of the experience by just watching full playthroughs on youtube.
It's a big game, so time demanding(and hence expensive) to dig for bugs in such a massive world. That's why the modding community is awesome, they released some patches, they fix annoying inventory stuff, improve graphics, improve enemy variety..
I perfectly understand then not wanting to put more funding into this, its already a very expensive game to make, I don't see that expensive endeavor paying off for them. Though I do feel bad for the console gamers, they just got the wrong end of the deal.
Having one console is not indicative of reduced competition, competition will just shift to other things... things that we want innovated... LIKE GAMES!!
