Ok see, it's posts like this that lead console makers to ignore REAL gamer needs while focusing on how many "flops" it can do.
I'm going to date myself here.
My first console system was "Pong". So if there is any question as to my "gamer street cred"...
So I tend to consider myself a sort-of benchmark when it comes to "what do gamers want?".
First and foremost, I don't give a rat's patooey how many flops a system can perform. I'm not using it to crunch pi, I'm using it to play games.
First and foremost, as a gamer I want innovative features never before offered and I want them to be features that say "drag the gamer and non-gamer alike into this experience."
You know exactly what I'm talking about if you started on Pong, where I did, and made it all the way to loading up Gran Theft Auto 3 for the first time. It was a new and immersive experience.
Not unlike Ultima or King's Quest before it.
Want to know what I want has a gamer?
I want those dual display outputs to be able to drive two monitors for independent 2 player gameplay. That's right. I want to play vs. my buddy sitting next to me. But I don't want to have to give up half my screen to do it.
I want...*taps mic* are you listening, Sony?...FULL KEYBOARD AND MOUSE SUPPORT SO ALL GAMES CAN BE PLAYED CROSS PLATFORM. I want to be able to CHOOSE if I play with a controller, keyboard & mouse, or whatever else.
And speaking on controllers...
*taps mic again to get Sony's attention*...Logitech, you listening too? Having to buy a G29 to replace my G27 WHICH WORKED PERFECTLY F*&^** FINE WAS NOT A PLEASANT EXPERIENCE. If that fiasco repeats with PS5? If either Sony or Logitech thinks I'm buying a G31 to replace my G29 to play Gran Turismo Super Sport or wtf ever they call it? Here is a promise. I WILL BUY NEITHER.
It's nice to sit around patting ourselves on the back for "making the correct console choice because PS5 does so many more flops than the new xbox". But can I say, just for a second, BIG DEAL, and lets see if we can get the console makers to address some GLARING ISSUES that have been haunting gaming and get some features sorely missed implemented, because I think THAT is a much more useful area to focus on rather than...my console does more flops than YOUR console.
