The final Straw, Consoles are dead to me!
As enter the verge of the release of the latest and greatest in consoles (Xbox one and PS4), I have come to the conclusion that I won’t be getting either of them. Yes, everyone knows that I’m a long time PC gamer and that I do play consoles on occasion only so this isn’t really a big deal.
Yes these new consoles are sure to be the best ever with much improved performance and graphics getting much closer to that of the PC.
When I do play a console I normally do it in a group and it is something that we can all have fun together and there is also the ease of getting some quick gaming in too.
The biggest problem I have is the greed of console companies expecting us to pay extra for online game play that’s where I draw the line. Just another extortion attempt to try to get us to pay for something we are already paying. Or I assume you already pay for your internet connection, so why do I have to pay for it again when I play multi-player games.
I have been debating this with myself for the last couple months since the announcements have come out describing that this was going to be the normal practice for console manufacturers. So I might be limiting my game playing and reviews to PC and the older consoles unless something changes in the future.
This is just my opinion welcome your input.
So today I ask you, will you buy and pay for online game play on the new consoles?
