Call this a rant if you will but Ive got to say something about where the game industry is going. Is it just me, or does the new game systems not excite you very much. Hell Im still happy with my Xbox and PS2. IMO the game console industry has gone to shit. They havent even come close to developing games that utilize the old systems max capabilities. Could they make better games on the new consoles, sure but how much better will they get before a new console comes out? The console Nazis dont care to keep the old systems around. If its not broke, dont fix it. I know that the PlayStation was due for an upgrade but does Microsoft really have anything to offer by countering with ANOTHER console? I know, I know its all about the Benjamins. I think it would be wiser to promote better games on the Xbox and wait a few years to see what the flaws will be for the PS3. So many gamers I speak to feel the same way as I do, but you still have a market and they WILL sell like hotcakes because people are addicted to technology. A recent poll showed that only 8% of the gaming population (polled of course) were excited about the 360.The other 72% were leaning towards the PS3. I dont think Ill buy either one just yet, hell I cant afford it. Can the console Nazis be swayed, probably not. It could however happen if the system flops, it would have to either be to expensive or it just wouldnt gather any interest. Dont think that'll happen soon. So in a nutshell: Games will be more expensive Consoles will become faddish and outdated. Game libraries will become smaller. Developers will have minimal time to kick out quality games. Developers will never truly maximize capabilities of ANY console. Gamers will be left with empty pockets!!! Hell, you might as well just buy a computer. Just my take on the issue, lets hear what you have to say.
