RockofAges: Egoy3k: RockofAges: Egoy3k: Choosing a platform is for poor people.

Spending an additional $500 to unlock 10% more games is for stupid people.

I spend $490 ($2 a day and I have three weeks of vacation) a year on coffee during my morning commute.  $500 extra every 8 years is a negligible sum of money.

I don't drink coffee. $2 for a cup of coffee sounds like a pretty bad deal compared to $3 for a bottle of wine. You are the same guy who said "this thread sounds poor" the other day, so I am probably right in assuming that money has little value to you as an apparent economic elitist.

So yea, go ahead and spend that $500 on your exclusive titles. I will keep it for a mortgage payment, personally, and pick the system up for $100 next year on Kijiji.


$2 is a pretty standard cost for drive through coffee, and $3 wine sounds like you buy some really shiatty wine unless you make your own in which case that's a pretty standard cost.

I never said I bought both consoles at release date.  Why would I do that if the exclusives that I want aren't out yet?  Either way if you can't afford an extra $500 every 8 years then maybe you shouldn't be spending anything on leisure activities because your finances must be pretty goddamned tight.

This.

I'm planning to buy a PS3 this Christmas and I won't be spending near the infamous $599 US Dollars to do so. Plus, all my games will likely be $20 or less each.

Frankly, I think some people need to remember that games don't disappear once they fade out of the popular zeitgeist. Well, I guess games that are only good for their multiplayer do...

Again, rank economic elitism. And it's not "amortized over 8 years". This console gen will be lucky to last 5, particularly where GPUs and peripherals are going in the next 1-2. It's an upfront payment of $500.

Actually, if you ask me, people who are economically depressed should ideally spend at least some of their income (perhaps not buying a new console, but maybe a used Wii or PS2 for $50) to help them enjoy their life. Gaming is one of the most inexpensive hobbies around. That's why poor folks are gamers and not people who go on vacation out of country.

But yeah, your postings do have a bit of silver-spoon-syndrome about them and it is a bit irritating. You might want to start hanging out with some working class folks ...


What do you think I'm actually commuting to in the morning if not my job?  Even if this console generation only lasts 5 years (despite the last one lasting 8) it's still 1/5th of what I spend on coffee.

RockofAges: If you were a member of the working class, quotes like "this thread sounds poor" and "poor people shouldn't have fun that costs more than a nickel" (paraphrase on the latter) would never come out of your mouth, because they are symptomatic statements that come from those who are possessed of comfort and entitlement.


You haven't actually met anyone in the 'working class' have you? 

You have a job -- laudable. So do many other people who work harder for much less than you do. Your bankroll does not make you a better person, in fact, in my experience, the richer the person is the more morally selfish and superioristic their attitude.

By the same logic their harder work for less pay doesn't make them better people either. You are the only person who has drawn a line between net worth and judgments about someones character here.  Nice work there bub, castigate me for judging someone based on their net worth (which I never did) then judge me based on my net worth (which you have imagined to be high).  You are truly possessed of a staggering intellect and will surely go on to do great things in this world.

Personally, I'll hang with the unwashed masses. Lot less hipsterdom and materialist piety.

You may be projecting a bit here.

OgreMagi: So 91 bricked consoles out of more than 500,000 sold on launch weekend.  That's a damn good QA level.  As for flooding Amazon reviews with negative ratings, it only takes a handful of assholes with multiple accounts to do that.  I wonder how many of those negative reviews were made on accounts that have zero purchase history?


Don't you work for Sony? ;D

Forget coffee over years. Tickets for 2 to see book of Mormon and dinner cost us $600 for a night of entertainment. Video games  are a cheap hobby compared to many. You can buy all the consoles and a top of the line PC for less than the cost of a mid range road/Triathlon bike.

"Choosing a platform is for poor people". Your exact words, and in fact, only words that drew my initial criticism. Then you engaged in the famous "backpeddle". 

Further, in other threads (I invite people to favourite you and to search for previous posts), you constantly take this position ("this thread sounds poor", "poor people _____").

You consistently do it. It's a pattern, and you are trying to reframe the narrative to make yourself look more reasonable after the fact.


This is the second thread that we've had this argument in.  I've done it once before and my argument hasn't changed. If you can't afford $500 every 8 years then your finances are in serious trouble.  That means you are poor.  $500 every 8 years is a negligible expense.  If you have other priorities that's fine, but your attempts to categorize $500 every 8 years as elitist are laughable.  It is not a lot of money by any metric unless you are poor.

Once again, if you don't have enough money to spend a negligible amount on something that you want then you don't have money.  When you don't money you are poor.  This isn't some attempt to denigrate anyone, just simple honest truth.

Kyosuke: IamSoSmart_S_M_R_T: Only a moran would try to cancel their pre-order, subby.  My Xbox One pre-order just sold this morning for $785.  No, it wasn't packaged with a game, it was just a day one console grossing me $285 for doing nothing more than listing it on eBay and changing the "ship to" address on Amazon.

/My PS4 pre-order sale only grossed me $210
//Impatient people are awesome, I basically earned a free console once they're back in stock

It was less your point, it was how you tried to make it. Saying that "Choosing a platform is for poor people" is what makes you elitist.

Oh so is 'poor' not a word we should use any more?  What is the now acceptable term for people without disposable income?

Sony is predicting the failure rate at 0.4% which would be about 4000 consoles.  The failure rate of the PS3 in the first 2 years was 10%.  If they can stay close to the first number and keep the second one down, they're fine except for the chicken little media reporting.

I haven't seen too many media stories about the failures, it's mainly the Amazon reviews that have people talking.

But the actual failure rate is far less important than the perceived failure rate. If enough people have a defective console, and complain about it loudly enough, the real numbers don't matter. Perception is reality.

The XBox failure rate was also 24%.  That wasn't perception, that was reality.  As far as perception, this is a story because it's always a story.  You're going to see the same story when the XBox One is realeased, just like you saw the same stories when the last gen consoles were released.  This generation is predicted to be a ten year life span.  None of this is going to significantly impact long term sales unless something truly catastrophic happens.

Actually one of the big takeaways in the PS4 reviews were how it is hard in many of the launch games to really see a dramatic difference between a new PS4 game and a late gen PS3 game like The Last of Us or Uncharted 3. The smoother frame rate is the biggest gain, but the lack of a dramatic jump in the eye candy means that the Xbox 360 and the PS3 are going to easily have decade-long life cycles. The gulf in graphics between a PS2 and PS3 was way bigger, but the PS2 still remained in production for 12 years. I wouldn't be shocked if the Xbox 360 and PS3 make it a good 15 years, especially since they are still solid systems for things like media playback or workout games (so even after you upgrade to the Xbox One in the living room, you'll keep a 360 in the bedroom or the home office for Netflix or Nike Plus).

Yeah, you and I are on the same page.  I'd add though that titles released later in the lifecycle of a console generation have historically been better than those released earlier, especially launch titles.  PS2  launch titles sucked ass. X-Squad?  Summoner? I seem to recall Summoner having a fatal bug that had me retire the game permanently. It seems to take a while for the game companies to catch up with a new systems potential so I think we will see a dramatic difference in PS4 media but not for a couple of more years.

That said, you can also still find brand new PS2 games in many stores.  Compilation sets for example, such as Mortal Kombat.  My PS2 is still in my bedroom.  I used to use it for DVDs but we finally upgraded to a dedicated bluray for that.  I still use the PS2 to play "retro" titles though.  I found my Gauntlet Legends memory card a while back and gave it a spin.

Dev companies tend to use known techniques, even for new generations. While they will update graphics, maybe take advantage of a new feature or two, they are nowhere near utilizing the features of the newest chipsets. In many cases, there may be hardware capabilities that are available, but aren't accessible because they haven't written the libraries or toolsets to take advantage of them yet. It's all they can do to finish the game in time for day-one release. And let's be honest, for 80% of gamers, a faster-framerate and a new Battlefield or CoD release is all they want anyway.

Playing the games remotely via the Vita is pretty cool.    MP  BF4 vs on the PS4 vs the PS3 version is very noticeable.  And the more precise  hit boxes brought on by the higher resolution really show when you trying to pistol snipe across the map.
Killzone is a blast as well.

Or you could go with, "I enjoy all consoles, because each has something unique to offer."

You see how the emphasis is positive, inclusive and centered on your opinion of the consoles and not people.  It's also not objectively false.  Choosing a platform may be for people who only have certain interests, or for people who have an interest in games but also likes to invest money in the stock market or go camping.  Your statement that one's gaming purchasing habits reflects on some aspect of the person, is no less dickish in terms of intensity than anything said by a fanboy yet is also a more broad-spectrum dickishness.  You're basically being just as much of a dick to more people than a Sony fanboy who says Xboxes are for retarded fratboys, or a Microsoft fanboy saying that Playstations are for lonely weeaboos.

Likewise, one could turn things back on you and say, "Buying all the platforms is for people who have no hobbies or sexual partners."  And that would be something dickish as well.

So, focus on positive things that you enjoy rather than on judging people for being different from you and you too could be not-a-dick.

Yeah, you and I are on the same page.  I'd add though that titles released later in the lifecycle of a console generation have historically been better than those released earlier, especially launch titles.  PS2  launch titles sucked ass. X-Squad?  Summoner? I seem to recall Summoner having a fatal bug that had me retire the game permanently. It seems to take a while for the game companies to catch up with a new systems potential so I think we will see a dramatic difference in PS4 media but not for a couple of more years.

That said, you can also still find brand new PS2 games in many stores.  Compilation sets for example, such as Mortal Kombat.  My PS2 is still in my bedroom.  I used to use it for DVDs but we finally upgraded to a dedicated bluray for that.  I still use the PS2 to play "retro" titles though.  I found my Gauntlet Legends memory card a while back and gave it a spin.

I just got Shadow of the Colossus for the PS3 free on PS+ last month, and I REALLY need to play though it. That's where Sony kind of shot themselves in the foot with PS+. I have such a huge backlog of PS3 games to play from PS+ that it'll be a while before I even need to consider the PS4.

Well...

My PS4 showed up early as shiat on Friday, was healthy, and everything has been great minus Battlefield 4's conquest mode.

Guess I'm an outlier.
