Wii U may be my only console this gen

I have no interest in the crapbox but I was planning on picking up a PS4, but my reservations about being forced to pay for online MP aren't getting any weaker. Assuming Sony drives the PS4 for an entire cycle, that'll be $800 in PS+ subscriptions on a $400 console. Maybe I'll nut up and go PC, or perhaps I'll drop only $50 to get a year of Battlefront in. Right now I'm leaning towards not even getting it at all. That could change as the years roll on.

Wii U may not be as flashy, but it gives me entertainment. That's really all I can ask for. More importantly, it's ALOT less heavy on the wallet.

I may get a PS4 later on it it's life cycle, but frankly I'm too busy playing 3DS! Pokemon Y is dominating my time. Not to mention I bought a house this year and I've been fixing it up. Also getting married next year so I'm preparing for that too.

Hahaha, U$800 in PS+ subscriptions? A 12 months subscription costs U$50. In 10 years that's U$500.

Try harder, drone.

PS.: why didn't you suddenly become a PC gamer like all the drones have this year? Didn't you know the Wii U is flopping hard? Time to spin. PC master race reporting for duty, right?

Accusing others of making death threats isn't offensive. Accusing someone of doing 9/11 is because it was in America. - GameFAQs admin

Your right, it should be $400. So $800 in total, my numbers are mixed up. Still, I'd be paying double on a console just for one feature that I care about. It's funny watching at you come at me like a hard a** when I'm just giving off an opinion.

Sony HAS to sell a sub with every console to offset losses. Their biggest focus this year will be on paid services. They're going to push PS+ and Gaikai like MS pushes Kinect
