It was pretty weird to me that about 95% of the information about the Xbox One announced so far has nothing to do with video games, but in a sense there’s nothing really to say. Any console is going to have relatively similar system specs, certainly close enough to run all the same games. The only difference is their markets. And since all consoles intentionally limit their markets by being closed-platform, they’re kind of all bad. Let’s just stop making them, or make an open console (that isn’t the Ouya). Of course there already is one, and it’s the PC. Problem solved.

And if anyone disagrees and thinks there’s a good reason for consoles to continue existing, let me know, I’d like to hear your thoughts.

Does anyone actually like consoles? Please answer me. I need to know. For science.

i mean pc’s are big and scary and intimidating. for one. i can’t just walk into a computer store and stay “give me a state of the art computer. for the games. the ones my friends play and i don;t want to spend a lot for it also. can it be quiet and do lots of other things and last for over a decade as well? that would be cool” 

i can only speak for myself but building a computer is absolutely one of the scariest things ever. what if i fuck up and buy a part that’s on sale cause it’s more realistic but an infinitely superior version is released shortly after? i barely even know the names of all the parts i’d need to make my own computer and it’s not like i can go to videogamecomputers dot com and get one (except for like alienware but i think those are actually shitty and overpriced? i have no idea)

and then there’s upgrading like i don’t want to keep buying new hardware to play new games that’s just silly to me “oh cool i was looking forward to this game coming out just let me meticulously check the requirements and cross reference those with my build. oops something’s missing lemme hit up newegg and buy a new prat and open my whole computer and put it back together again”

and you can’t reasonably fit 4 people in the same room playing a game on the same computer. how many times have u found yourself having a few drinks at s friends house when they suggest you all gather round the desktop for a rousing game of hotline miami?

just my two cents

I think the most valid reason to buy a console over a PC is definitely how much easier it is to play multiplayer with a console hooked up to a TV, but in all honesty, last time I had a console game were even moving away from letting you do that. Obviously this isn’t representative of every game, and it may not even be true anymore (I haven’t owned a console for probably four years), but a lot of times I’d have friends over and try to play some game or another and it would only have two player split screen, or sometimes not even that. I can’t say I specifically remember the games, but I feel like Gears of War and maybe some of the Call of Duty games worked that way. It felt like that was their way of pushing you towards buying your own console/copy of the game/xbox live subscription rather that using a friend’s (which is pretty messed up in my opinion). The Wii at least didn’t do stuff like that, but I know for sure that Xbox 360 did, and the Xbox One probably will too.

Regarding how quickly computers become outdated or how difficult they are to build/purchase, that’s kind of all objective. I bought my laptop online for about $700, fully built, and it runs basically everything on some settings or another. I’ve had it for two or three years now and it still runs new games on high settings. Sure its more expensive than a console, but chances are if you have a console you probably also have a computer, so you can basically consider your console as part of the price of a non-gaming computer.

I wasn’t sure if a clove was the whole thing or one of the segments. Apparently its one of the segments.

Everyone go google “clove of garlic”, I’m not going to spoil what comes up but just read the first couple Yahoo answers results
