Of course if you can afford it, you should own all systems with Xbox 360 being the last system you consider owning (I will explain why later on in the post). I think the best system this generation is Nintendo DS. But I don’t think I have to convince anyone of that since Nintendog sell three times more than Modern Warfare 2.
I think there should be more people playing PC games rather than console game, even though it was revealed recently that PC gamers only make up of 3% of the market. Now I think this is just because most PC gamer download their games. You’re almost an idiot if you buy real game. I mean, come on. If you buy PC games, you are not that much of a tech wiz.
As the matter of fact, I think a smart person would own a Wii and a PC that’s it.
That’s because 80% of the games on the market that are on PS3 and XBox are also available on PC. A person like me who is a motion graphic designer already need a powerful system for work. So my computer is more than powerful enough to handle any games. Why should I buy PS3 or xbox 360 which cost several hundred dollars, when I have a perfectly fine system on my desk that can play the same games?
Of course I will miss out on games like Metal Gear Solid4, God of War III, Final XIII (but from what I heard, I don’t miss much on that one) etc. But you will miss out more if you don’t own a Wii, because most of the games on that system is exclusive to that system. My brother don’t own PS3 and Xbox360, but he gets to play Left4Dead, Modern Warfare2, Dead Space, Bioshock and all the other popular games including Street Fighter 4. As far as I know there is no Tatsunoko vs Capcom on a PC. It’s almost silly to buy PS3 or Xbox 360 just for 4 or 5 exclusive games. My friend and I, neither of us owned PS3, but we played God of War III at my local video game cafe. It was good. Actually it was great. But it’s not 400 something bucks (I can’t keep track of all the price cuts) for a system plus the cost of the game, great.
Why is Xbox360 a bad investment? Simple. Almost all of the games on Xbox360 are on PC, even more so than Playstation 3. If you have a perfectly fine computer that you use for work and school that can play games like Modern Warfare 2, Crysis, Gears of War series, and even Halo; does it make sense to buy another system to play those games?
