Amen to that, but I think the reason that a console war exists is a bit different than why trash talking exists. I think that in a console war, most people are trying to justify their purchase. Shitting on another console can make it easier to not buy it and just say that your purchase was obviously the right choice when in reality, none of us really know how well the consoles will really stack up to each other at the end of their lifecycles.
Some of us are content with just ignoring all of the great things on another console and just sticking to what we've bought and other people do the same thing for a different console and from there, trash talking springs up. That definitely has to stop.
Ive come to the conclusion that games will more or less look the same on each system with exclusives looking amazing. Nothing will use the consoles full power at the start but that will change over time. Both systems seem to have their own little tricks and tweeks so who knows what will happen in the end. I plan to get a xboxone when it comes out and enjoy it. I plan to get Destiny when it comes out and enjoy it. Why get a Xboxone? Because my friends are on xbox.
I feel this gen will be a repeat of the last gen but with better graphics and hopefully better games.
The only Console "war" I know of is if we get invaded and have to start chucking 360s and PS3s at people.
