Why can't we be friends, why can't we be friends...

10 replies 33 views Edited Nov 17, 2006
I'm sick and tired of all this BS fanboyism. Why can't Microsoft and Sony combine to make the best console of all time? Didn't the first playstation do that? like nintendo(I think) games were playing on the first Playstation. (Not disk) Microsoft is a software company so they can provide all the great stuff like Live and Marketplace, as to where sony is a hardware company(I think) and they can provide with the console itself and it's capabilities. I know this will most likely never happen no matter what, but it would be a good combination and there won't be any fanboyism. Such as "Oh sony's better!" or "No! Microsoft is better!" That **bleep** won't matter since they both are making the same console. Right?

One console=high prices. No thanks. Don't get me wrong, I think fanboyism is dumb, but competition is good.

I guess a console wouldn't be nothing without competition.

Monopoly's are bad. Sonintosoft would be able to demand uber high prices for Cheap Chinese made junk.

It just wouldn't work out. No one would buy it unless they won the lottery.

Besides, competition is what makes the entertainment world go round. It's a good thing in a way. Variety > One console only.

yeh. if there is only one console then they can make the price as high as they won't. its like if nikey were the only people that made hockey skates they could charge a lot becuase well you need skates to play but only they are selling them so they can charge what you want. that would suck for consoles cuase then (for example) sony could ask for profit on ps3. making it like $1000

Not just that either.....the compettiton and the feverish fanboyism make for a

"we have to be better" attitude....otherwise sony might have charged me 1000 dollars for my ps3.

Exactly right. If there's ever any market with only one supplier, the prices will inflate. Then, to satisfy the people, another company will spring up with a newer, cheaper console. And then we're right back where we started, with two competing consoles.

Besides, the 360 is much better designed in terms of hardware...sure, the PS3 is powerful, but you pay a premium for that power. In addition, the PS3 is bleeding-edge.
