So the recession is over, right? There's no way people would be paying 0 (0?) for this otherwise.
Aren't video games & big TV's one of those things that people keep buying when they can no longer afford a car, a vacation or a larger house. You just hole yourself up and stay inside.
I know a guy who is barely clinging to a shitty sales job, married with a 2 year old kid. His jeep has been busted for about four months and they're barely covering his expenses and his rent, and about a week ago he decided to drop like 0-0 on the new XBox.
He is five years older than me.
I would really like a PS4, to be honest. Yeah, I know it's a mid-level PC, but it's more about the exclusive titles for me. Games like Uncharted, Infamous, and especially Ratchet and Clank.
That said, none of those are out yet. I skipped the big releases this year, because I have more important things, a kid, loans, etc. I don't understand the rush to get either of these things, there's nothing to play on either. By the time Infamous comes out, I have no doubt I'll be able to buy some kind of bundle with my rebate next year, or there will have been a price drop, etc.
The days when consoles launched with killer apps have long been over. Why anyone cares about "day one" is beyond my comprehension.
Also, I just went to look at gamestop to see whether the Xbone was 0 or 0 (it's 500), and the page for it is hilarious. They actually have large boxes advertising hilarious key features. "Play online or offline!" "You can still trade games in!" "You can turn kinect off if you want!"
Heheh.. you said Xbone.
I can't remember who told me this, but I guess there's a retinal scan that gagues how many eyes are watching a TV show or movie, and it charges you accordingly. That's fucked up.
I totally understand the cheap entertainment value of video games to people who can't afford much, but paying these kind of prices...for what? These things have no games and unlike the last two generations, no other new function (DVD player, online marketplace/media) to justify upgrading. What do these things do that the PS3 and 360 can't? Useful shit that people actually want.
Christ I can't even tell the difference between graphics is most of the screenshots.

Idk but it kinda sounds like he's just using it wrong. Is "download that" really a command? And he yells the same commands repeatedly from what appears to be the wrong menus.

XBOX RAISE SHIELDS!
XBox target lead Romulan ship!
XBOX TARGET LEAD ROM...
Rule of Acquisition number 232: never buy a hyoo-mon video game console.
Open the pod bay doors, XBOX.

I still can't believe they passed up Kim Wu in favor of ghetto Skarlet; screw Killer Fartstinkt III and everyone involved in it. YOUR HEXBOX IS TRYING TO DO YOU A SOLID HERE, KID. LISTEN TO IT AND DON'T DOWNLOAD THAT STUPID PIECE OF CRAP GAME FOR JERKS.

XBOX, SHOW ME A PICTURE OF A DISAPPOINTED BASHAR AL-ASSAD IN AN OFFICE.

i like my wiiu. It does what i want and not what i don't want. Also it has console games instead of PC games dumbed down into a console

I find it hilarious that my shitty two year old free android phone has near flawless voice recognition, while the 0 Xbox One, a machine which has the voice controls as a primary selling point, can't recognize the basic commands it was designed to follow.
As I said in a previous video, I have a PS4 even though I didn't want one yet. It's a wonderful machine with a shit library, which is why I didn't want one yet. I don't doubt it's library is going to be pretty competent in a year or two though.
Meh, my PC and PS3 will just have to keep me occupied until then.
Oh I will undoubtedly get a PS4 someday too, both once some interesting games come out, and when I make a dent in the pile of PS3 games I still haven't played yet. Interestingly if the PS4 had backwards compatibility it might move up on the list so I could have one system and still play the dozens of games I already have, but as long as I would buy the thing just to let it sit idle most of the time, its pretty easy to avoid the temptation.
