How do you guys feel about this now? I know console wars was such a huge deal a few years back, and I still feel like it exist but now with current gen feels like they're just trying to split the market on purpose now.
Good question... could you give a couple of examples, maybe? Of purposefully splitting the market I mean. I've noticed most major game franchises seem to go cross-console now, with the exception of Nintendo, which keeps pretty tight reins on their niche in the market. I think in their case I don't mind - since I know that I go to my Wii for certain types of games.
An example would be like for Nintendo and their new ds handheld. You can't play new ds games on old ds system so it's splits the market for people who feel they don't need to get the new platform. Splitting the market then. Like you have to get this in order to get this. If you don't then you can't have it.
Oh, I see what you're saying. I have felt like that sometimes along the way with PlayStation. I haven't played my DS in a while, so I haven't really been keeping up with the new games. I know I'm behind the times, but right now I'm trying to figure out whether it's worth it for me to pay out for a PS4. I definitely feel out of the loop, though, not having it.
I honestly don't get why people need to fight over this, it ones down to what you personally like, for me that's Xbox, I find it to be superior, but why what I think should spark hate comments about how terrible a person I am or whatever from PlayStation fans is beyond me, and the same goes for people who like PlayStation and get a hard time from Xbox fans, can't people just enjoy the games themselves...
That's my thoughts on console wars, when it comes to splitting the market it doesn't upset me personally as I'm happy to just upgrade to get the latest stuff, but I also realise it's not that simple for some people, so I wish there wasn't quite as much of it happening
