Left Playstation about a year and a half ago. Started gaming exclusively on Xbox..

11 replies 168 views Edited Jun 8, 2013

After the XBone's near-instant suicide I hope Sony can offer me a next-gen CONSOLE and not a watered down PC. I have started testing the waters of ACTUALPC gaming. I have a good enough PC to play most games at mid level settings. It has been enjoyable so far. If next gen systems want all the inconvenience of PC with NONE of the benefits, I am done. If PS4 can offer me a living room gaming experience similar to the current generation (in terms of flexibility and requirements) I am sold. Day one....gimme gimme.

 

HOWEVER, if this RFID chip is embedded on each disc I will turn my nose up at you the same way so many have done to MS. I will then build an HTPC/Gaming rig in a smallish case and keep it in my living room.

 

That will be my last resort. Sony, you are the only thing keeping me from turning away from console gaming. Please, don't let me down.

 

I really hope to game on a Sony machine again in the future. Fingers crossed.

Same here for me. If sony does the same thing as Microsoft, with the " Every 24 hour online DRM check-up crap, i will just custom build a gaming PC.

Because PC gaming isn't loaded with DRM.

Isn't the PC's DRM not as bad?

Limited installs. Always connected even for single player. Steam redemption codes making it impossible to sell used games, Starforce drivers. Not to mention games that don't work on Windows 7 or 8...  If that's what you can call "not as bad", then I'd hate to see what is acceptable.

One just how many $1300 gaming rigs do you have? Two that is mostly EA Valve games are an exception(pls list more if you can) Three Skidrow. Four Skidrow. Five SSDD(COD reference)  so ya where is the difference.

In the same boat as OP.

 

I was Playstation only before breaking down and buying an Xbox becauase all of my friends had one and I really liked the interface of it at the time. I figured since all my friends had one I'd be able to play with them online and all that. 

 

Then I built a PC and haven't touched my Xbox since. I'd sell it for a PS3 but unfortunately it's not mine to sell. :s

 

Hopefully I'll be able to buy a PS3 after E3. Smiley Happy

That's nowhere near acceptable.
