How do you feel about console wars? Do they piss you off? Does all the hyperbole make you want to vomit? Or do you enjoy it because fuck yea internet wackiness? Or do you have some other reason? Or do you really just not care either way?

I remember that we use to get a lot of former Gamespot people, usually with green names, saying shit like "Yo dawg, I got banned from the console warz on Gamespot. XBOX RUUULLLLEZZZZ."

Enjoyed the subsequent mocking of said individuals, followed by the quick locking of those threads. I am perfectly happy to discuss the merits of different things, but fanboys make me cringe.

I lost all my older brothers to the war. I will NOT abandon my biased choices though, now, when everyone around me has been fighting so hard. How can I do any less?

Console wars are for people to try and justify their purchase. There is no wrong console purchase. Unless you buy Nintendo.

I find them stupid, illogical and only playing into the marketing.

But yeah, I find them super amusing to watch as an outsider. Sure i will pick a "winner" and probably stick with it like the last two generations. PS2 and xbox 360 being my last two consoles. Currently looking like i'll grab a PS4 over a XB1 unless sony fucks E3 up and microsoft pulls a magic rabbit out of their hat. Still waiting though.

But even after i get my future PS4 I'll find massive amusement in the PS4 fanboys trashing the XB1 and the xbox fanboys coming up with trash talking counter arguments. It'll be fun. I wont take part in it, but i look forward to the trash topics and forums threads that result from this.

In theory, I find the idea of people going nuts over some bullshit like video games to be fun and funny. I don't want to be in the middle of it, though. So in practice, the answer's no.

Absolutely fucking yes!

I'm a huge advocate for the console wars because competition is the primary driver for innovation and progress in ANY industry.

In the case of gaming, it's the gamers who provide the metric of success or failure. Sure, fanboys are pretty annoying sometimes, but they are an intrinsic part of this grand competition and a great indicator of who is doing a better job of appealing to the common gamesman.

Plus, there is giant enjoyment potential if you don't involve yourself with fanboys, but rather watch their reactions to things.

Yep. I love all the stupid shit and dumb logic fanboys pull out of their ass to try and 'win' their argument on that their console is better.

It's a beautiful train wreck to watch.

I enjoy watching people make themselves look like assholes on the internet over which game console is superior as if it effects their day to day lives. So yes, i guess. I choose the third option because robots.

I like when people have fun with it and simply celebrate their preferred platform, but when people are serious in it, I just want to start slapping everyone until they're spitting blood.

I remember when they were a big fucking deal back when I was in middle school. Sega vs Nintendo was some serious fuckin' business.

Honestly consoles are so similar these days there is hardly even a point trying to argue which one is better. Just play the one that has the games you want on it.

No. The crazier people get about it, the less rational discussion can be had, and usually just results in a lot of hateful speech being spouted over the dumbest fucking things.

Although I own any console that have games I like and as such don't really take sides when it comes to consoles, I do enjoy the craziness that results online from console wars. ^_^

Yes because competition can bring the best out of developers and hardware manufacturers.

No, Sadly it can bring out the worst in gamers/internet.

I still voted Yes because you can always avoid the negatives.

Yes, not only because competition breeds excellence and innovation, but also because we get wonderfully silly videos and animated gifs. The more humorous reactions to the Xbox One reveal have provided me with plenty of entertainment in these past few days. Television, dogs, sports!

As awful as it sounds, I am excited to observe the post-E3 fanboy shitstorm. While I do wish for the day when fanboys stop existing to propagate the negative gamer stereotype, I cannot help but be entertained by them.

Yes. I personally don't care. It's about the games for me and I'll play them where they're available, no matter if it says PC, Xbox, Playstation or Wii on it.

But consolewars do entertain me. People get so goddamned riled up, it's fucking nuts.

Children bicker about which console is the best. Adults recognize the variances in experiences for different people.

The Playstation 3 ended up being the better console both technically and with games which were exclusive between the PC, 360, and PS3, yet I bought the 360 close to launch.

The Playstation 4 is clearly the leader in terms of hardware capability, yet I'm still on the fence about which I'll buy. If I want raw strength, I suppose I'll stick with the PC.

Oh and on topic, I never participate in console wars because beauty is in the eye of the beholder and peace is good and I just don't care enough. But I'm pro console war because they're fun to read. >=]

Woah, what a random video clip for that song.

LOVE the song though - the PS4 opening montage was one of Sony's best, and they're totally the kings of gaming montages.

I don't care either way its all pretty dumb and sometimes that's fun and other times I just shake my head but either way I'm more interested in the games. The whole console wars thing to me seems like dumb marketing that people are blissfully unaware they are even participating in... maybe I'm being a little cynical about the whole thing but all well.

Can't be arsed with them most of the time. Then again having fanboys vocally masturbate over their precious devices can be good for a few cheap laughs.

I think it's dumb because at the end of the day PC always wins over both of them so what's the point in fighting?

But honestly, it's fucking stupid. There's so many things in the world worth getting pissed off about and talking about more so than kids needing to justify their purchase by saying the other thing is terrible. Each platform will eventually get enough exclusives that make it worth getting eventually. When that happens is different for each person as everyone has different tastes in games and some are willing to put up with dumber shit more easily like the scam of paying for live to access stuff that's free everywhere else.

Console wars can be quite entertaining. There would be little point for most forums otherwise.

Things would be pretty boring if we would all agree on everything.

I used to but I don't like the direction this one is going. It seems to be focusing on features instead of graphical horsepower and games.

In the sense that there is a competition between the two consoles of who has the best games. If they force each other to do better, then yes I like console wars.

But if it's just stupid teenagers fighting over which console is the best, cause they obviously don't have anything better to do, then the answer is no. I don't like console wars.

I'm guessing OP is referring to the later and if that is indeed the case, then I got to say: That is a stupid question! Nobody, who is sane, finds that kind of "competition" interesting or worthwhile.

With that being said though: PS4 all the way sucka!

Nope. Everyone has their own opinion and it's their own. It makes someone look utterly ridiculous and childish when attempting to argue that.
