9th gen should have upgradeable consoles. I think that's exactly what the Steam machines are going to allow when they come out.

Not even the OEMs of Steam machines know what they're going for...

Choosing a PC shouldn't mean someone has to drop consoles though. Its not just one or the other. I prefer my PC more than anything, but there is no way I am randomly going to give up consoles because of that.

My reply is to the ongoing conversation about seeing the light and not the OP.


Ya...seriously. A PC and console go together like a Porterhouse and a good Merlot.

I couldn't imagine not having both as daily/nightly gaming choices now.

I will try and see it from your point of view, but I doubt we'll be able to fit both our heads up there.

- Pay to play online- well this has been around since the original Xbox days and was only recently implemented by Sony because it is a great way to make extra money after the console has been sold.


Previous gen : not the norm, just Xbox identity
Current gen : norm, everyone is used to pay a monthly subscription to play online

They will refer to this as the Greed Generation of consoles.

- 40 % of 8th gen gamers are hardcore fanboys
- 30 % of 8th gen gamers are Trolls
- clones become a norm
- online download of past gens titles are higher than physical (considering payment for Internet is not free)
- system crashes and bricks are more common
- people complain at any little damn reason
