How did you justify a next-gen purchase?

#11aszsithPosted 2/18/2014 2:34:04 PM
I like to play games on consoles. I like games optimized for the hardware I own, not the hardware I could own if I upgrade my pc. I also like games that are exclusive to consoles that are not available on pc. That was the reasoning behind buying my current gen console purchase. No justification necessary.

Additionally, the reason why I chose to get an XBOne before a PS4 (note BEFORE, not INSTEAD OF) was because of Dead Rising 3 at launch. The PS4 simply didn't have a single title that was not available to play somewhere else AT LAUNCH while the XBOne had Dead Rising 3.

ALL games should have a Single Player mode. I can always guarantee I want to play when I turn on my system. I can't guarantee others will at the same time.

If you aren't good enough with computers and don't have the time to try or desire to get better with them, you get a console (or by a prebuilt computer). If you want something to just sit back and relax with on your TV, you buy a console. If you don't have the money for a computer, you buy a console.

PC games are horribly optimized, and thus will require new hardware in the upcoming years to be able to handle the games that consoles will be able to handle 5+ years from now.

I don't have to justify them. If I want to buy them I buy them.

I work. I liked the product and what it offers so I purchased it. No justification needed.

Neither of which appeals to me. I got bored with KZ3 and Knack doesn't interest me at all.
