most if not all PC gamers will laugh at you unless its a new alienware laptop and then thats only for gaming on the run or away from the house.
alienware laptop? that is your example of a serious gamer pc?
Serious gamers ... either are given rigs by their sponsors because they are professional e-sport players; or they build their own rig themselves ...
they DO NOT buy alienware (overpriced Dell, selling you stuff for a extra premium). Why? Because the name premium you save not buying alienware buys
you better components.
With that aside ... Microsoft can deal with it when our family doesn't buy their next console. We've purchased a couple 360s, but we just don't
mess with our consoles, unless we are just going to fool around with a single player game offline. Otherwise, we are on our PCs playing the MMO/MOBA
we like, or Minecraft ... we were not happy with EA's decision for SimCity.
I grew up to the original consoles, in fact, had a coleco vision, not an atari and kept at least one of the consoles for each generation. They've
always been something you do for fun, alone or with a family member for me. No need at all, to be online. I can see some merit in it, patches,
updates, FREE dlc. But what I see about the console ability to go online, is the fall in quality and quantity of content. Rush it out, we can hotfix
the bugs later after they buy and test it for us. Let's take this out of the game and charge them for it instead.
The gaming industry is shooting themselves in the foot ... not as a whole, but a whole lot of them. Always online crap, microtransactions. Loss of
respect for the industry and the gamers.
There was always profit involved ... but it used to be ran by people who loved gaming ... not people who see gamers as cash cows.
I'm slowly finding fewer and fewer gaming companies I can respect; and if I can't respect the company, they don't deserve my money in the future.
If they don't respect their market, how are we to respect them?
