What do you think about the console wars?

People all over are arguing and debating about how Xbox is better or PS3, and the upcoming wiiU and how it goes with the dominant consoles.

Well...what else are 16 year old boys going to debate about? Politics, Religion, the foundations of our human social structure and all its flaws? :slow:

I witnessed it a lot when I wa sin that general age range. I loved my GameCube (this was during the 00's) and never really shoved it down anyone's throats. But I had one Xbox fan as a friend who just seemed like he couldn't live with knowing I actually preferred playing Super Mario Sunshine over Halo :facepalm: All the cliche excuses for hating a Nintendo console were thrown too, the main one being "It has shit graphics" :roll: Some of us care about things other than that and bitching about graphics is a pretty easy and shallow target if you ask me.

I guarantee the majority of console-bashing comes from males aged 14-18 :shifty:

I kinda disagree with your age range should be around 12-18, but its the internet. Anyone can be any age.

It's a conversation starter, but I'm not sure it's as bad as some make it seem. Everyone's entitled to their opinions so it's reasonable that some people like a particular console more than others. So what if some of these people like to argue or defend their choice? =/

They probably go insane and flame whichever thread that agrees on one console/ whoever favors one more than the other

Ps3 is my choice but wii u could be great with HD and third party getting a look in.

Competition is good because it pushes innovation in the hardware. More specifically, it pushes manufactures to use somewhat unconventional architectures and embedded designs that we wouldn't have access to otherwise. For instance, the developments made in the design of the Cell Broadband engine were applied in building the IBM Roadrunner. The fact that PowerPC architectures are used in consoles at all is very interesting in my opinion. I think it's good that there is economic drive for game companies to try these somewhat novel ideas in a bid to get their competition in a cost/image-quality/power war

I think sometimes it's easy to forget that PCs and Consoles are so different in their architectures that it's barely worth even comparing the two. As for comparisons between different consoles... the N64 was the most interesting of them all with MIPS and the RCP microcode :p

It's ridiculous. Do people really have nothing better to do than bitch at others about their console preferences? Is it really that important that everyone know they're making a horrible, life-shattering decision if they don't buy console X Y Z? Everyone has their own preferences; people who make a big deal out of it really need to find something more important to argue about. Augh.

Meh, I don't think there's any 'war' going on. People are going to like what they're going to like and nothing's going to change their minds unless they want to be changed.

I, for one, like them all equally because they each have something that appeals to me:
PlayStation2- because I've owned a PlayStation 1 and all my old games work on the PS2
PlayStation 3- for the same reason as the 2, all my old PS2 games play on it
Wii: because I like the games. I grew up with Nintendo and I've enjoyed it since a child
Xbox360- Halo, 'nuff said
and the WiiU...I have yet to try.

So, really, if I wasn't flat-broke I'd own them all.

It needs to stop, seriously. It was funny when companies did it during the SNES/Genesis era, but now it's just become beyond annoying with grown adults argue like 5 year old brats.

I think it's dumb and the way it polarizes so many gamers actually hurts the industry. And in the end, people end up debating about fuckin' graphics and Frames per Second: nothing to do with how much one should like a game. I know it's a competition, but that doesn't mean everything has to be superior, especially with the lackluster stories and disappointing endings to great series.

Even then, PC is the most versatile. It's not in the wars because it's superior. But console games have a certain charm, and they use that to battle on...

It's one of the most ridiculous conflicts to happen over some of the most trivial shit. I place part of the blame on console wars for dividing the gaming community.

I think it's funny when a discussion on (or boasting of) technical graphics only talks about resolution and frames per second.

I think it's silly to argue about which console is best when a gaming console is nothing without great games. So rather than argue about which company made a better console, people should focus on which games are better. Or, they could just quit the arguing because there are gonna be good games on all the different consoles :shrug:

Here's what I think when I hear console WAR: Shit eating fantard.
I don't give a shit who you are. A nostalgia whore Nintendrone, Fraghead XBot, Graphic whore Sonydrone, or snobby PC elitist.

I'm not saying being a huge fan of something or disliking something else is wrong, but when you get aggro and actively defend a company/system, and militantly bash not only opposing competition but PEOPLE who enjoy the stuff, you're just a brand dominated social reject who spends too much time with a joystick up your unbathed ass doing nothing else with their time. I hate this fantard crap. Deal with it at school all the time.
And no, I'm not talking about OP or any posters here. Just speaking general.

I just get whatever has quality, consistency, and caters to me. I'll buy a Wii U when I see something actually innovative like Nintendo swears all their games are. Until then, I'll play other games. I haven't been sold on the glorified nPod yet.
