I bought the previous game three times: twice on PS3 (EU & EW) and once on iOS for iPad. I'm disappointed I won't get to play this one unless I decide to spend a decent amount on a PC. I'd buy it on PS4 in a heartbeat.
You bought an iPad, so I'm not sure you have much ground to stand on here.
Plenty of ground. I don't need to justify my lifestyle to you. A tablet has more uses to me than a gaming PC, and so does my home theatre where I prefer to play games.
Not when you're talking about costs. If you don't want one, that's fine, but to say expenditure is a major factor is pretty funny. Bragging about your home "theatre" only makes it more so.
Also, "a tablet" doesn't necessarily equate to "iPad" since there are many other better and simultaneously cheaper alternatives. Which was kind of my point: you pay out the nose for a certain brand/OS, then balk at buying a computer, which would get you better-playing versions of games (which you can also hook up to that fancy speaker system and TV). I dunno, I just thought it was amusing. Carry on.
I'm not bragging about anything. I was just explaining my preferences. Home theatre is a way to explain a TV, receiver, speakers, and set top boxes, in not so many words. Mine is very modest compared to whatever extravagance you thought up reading my comment. I just prefer a comfy chair and a controller to a desk and a keyboard. As an expenditure my living room gets many more hours of use than a computer. Music, movies, games, and it's where I watch web content like Giant Bomb.
Yabbering on about what brands I buy is petty. See past your own biases before you claim I pay through the nose for anything or claim I am getting a "worse" product. You don't know the first thing about my needs and desires and why a PlayStation and an iPad fulfilled those best for me. I mentioned both because they are some platforms that XCOM: Enemy Within was available on, and they were the versions of the game I loved playing and would buy XCOM 2 on them were it available. That was the only point: a PC is not what I have and I would love to support this game.
