This.

The only reason I even own a Wii is for the flagship titles like Mario, Metroid, Zelda, and Donkey Kong. Everything I've read about the Wii-U hasn't impressed me in the slightest. The controller looks even more gimmicky than the Wii remote, in my opinion.

As a die hard Sony fanboy, I believe that the PS4 isn't coming anytime soon. The PS3 has so much more to offer before another console is launched. Hell, the PS2 had a lot more steam left in it, but then Sony hurriedly dropped the PS3 to compete with Microsoft, if you ask me.

Eh, I'd expect the PS4 to be released around the same time the 720 is. I doubt Sony will make the same mistake again and launch their console a year after their competitors have.

I have no idea why it's surprising to you that there are people who don't own every console.



Also, if I got something new to play an exclusive title, it would be a Wii to play Zelda, not a PS. As it is, 360 + PC is more than enough gaming for me atm.

I hate Origin.

I know no one mentioned it, but I had to say it.

Don't post if you're just going to post gifs that don't contribute anything.

Skyrim junks up on me occasionally. But for the most part it's cool. I guess I just dislike the omnipresence of it, and how purchases don't have any kind of cross-compatibility outside of Steam.

Some of the game packages are great. Recently I bought the "Jedi Knight" pack with about 5 classic SW games. Cheap, awesome, easy to set up and play.

What do you mean cross-compatibility? Like you bought the game and can't run it through Origin? Or??

If you play PC games, Steam is a necessity pretty much. Want to play a game that's older than a few years, Steam mostly has it. It's cheap, and requires about 1-2 hour download depending on how big the game is. If you love PC gaming, I'm surprised your not using Steam, or something very similar. It's one the reasons why PC gaming is around still.

The one thing though is because Steam is a client, people automatically think that a problem with the game is a Steam issue. It's usually not, if the game is buggy, it's the game, not Steam. (Not saying people issues here are not Steam related)

And if Steam goes under?

I like it. But it's something akin to the audio file that you can't port off of the original device. Clunky though they may be, I have PC game CD's from nearly two decades ago that I can still use on any PC that I want and that I'll always have (OS compatibility notwithstanding - anything can still run, it just sometimes takes a workaround for older games). Same, with, say owning a TV show via XBox Live. I can watch it whenever, but it's also grounded. I can't take it to a friend's, etc.

I get that this is the future of the medium, and for the most part I have no issues with it. It doesn't mean it's without flaws.

That's a fair point and one I never considered.

Still, I like how Steam sorta "unites" the PC gaming community. Similar to how X-box live and PS network work.

I'm with you on this one.

But I'm also still firmly in the camp of "physical copies are far superior to digital". I simply do not trust everything going all digital.
