Overall? This --> More power, less money-grabbing BS or gimmicks, and an ergonomic way to play & chat.

But in accordance with your list thing, here's my order:

- The direction the manufacturer seems to be headed
- Hardware specs
- Exclusive games/content
- Initial cost
- Extra perks for subscription to online service (PSN+ free games, games with Gold)
- Controller
- Online multiplayer service
- Quality and cost of online apps (Netflix, Hulu, etc.)
- Extra features (Gameplay streaming, TV integration, etc.)
- Maintaining your online reputation (trophies/achievements)
- Design of the console
- Loyalty to a particular manufacturer/developer
- Peripherals (Kinect, PS Eye)

Not even sure why I put effort into this lol. It's a lot to do for no particular reason.

Games.

I don't care for social media
or cameras
or gimickey 2nd screens
or exclusives
or dlc
or franchises
or 3d
or anything else that isn't essential to have fun

I want good games I can enjoy that won't nickle and dime me for crap.
I want to have fun, keep my game so I'm not rushed to beat it & resell it at the highest value (I'm looking at you Storm 3) and just good things.
