What would it take you to buy a current-gen console you don't already currently own?

For me, I could buy a Switch if they show a sign of having a library that's bigger and legitimately more worthwhile than the Wii U's and then only after they somehow revise the console to have better hardware. I don't foresee a scenario where I would get an Xbox One because it's kind of redundant if you already have a PS4.

To be honest the state of PC games right now with all this steam/epic bullshit I am seriously thinking of picking up a second hand Gamecube. Fuck emulation all PC is good for now is lurking here and even at that its pushing it. With needing multiple launchers, port begging and an over usage of windows its a new dark age for PC.

Literally not a single good reason exists for buying a console. Use it for what purpose? To give those abysmal companies money? And then give more money to trannies for "games" like Horizon Zero Whites, Until Dawn, The Cucks of Us and Soy of War?

They only had 1 decent franchise, Yakuza, and even that is getting ported to PC. So what the hell else do consoles have to offer that makes it worth for me to spend $400 on one? None. I don't even buy games I like for more than $15. Not once in my entire life did I buy a game on launch. Every game I buy is 2 - 3+ years after it was released, off some chink key-selling site for a low price. I have absolutely no problem with waiting an entire decade for an interesting console-exclusive game to be someday ported on PC, then wait 6+ months more until it gets pirated.

The only way you could ever make somebody like me buy is a console is if you made every game on it fully compatible with keyboard/mouse, it ran every game on 120FPS on maximum settings on 2K res, and it had full mod support. And of course, it's OS should be open-source.

Wii games, yes. GameCube, however, require you to use a special homebrew application, and you need a wired controller and to a working ISO rip of the games (Some idiots actually have insert GameCube discs into their Wii U and broke the system's disc tray). And, even then, there's a compatibility list surrounding what the app can and cannot run.

Wii gets you the both Gamecube and Wii games, plus a shit ton of homebrew. If care about video quality, the Wii component cables are also a lot cheaper. (Gamecube's component output is a bit better, but costs a fuck ton more even for new 3rd party component/HDMI adapters.)



WiiU can use vWii and run most of the same Wii games/homebrew. Nintendont is just as compatible for running Gamecube games as it is on Wii, although any games that need certain GC accessories (GBA link cable for Pokemon, Bongo Drums for DK, etc) can't use them.

I personally stick with a Wii because it's quicker to get to the HBC, I can use accessories as needed, and older Wiis can use a modified boot menu allowing you to boot straight to the HBC. I've turned on my Wii remote maybe a couple times in the past 2 years. (Some Wii games support the GC controller which is really nice.)

Only get a WiiU if you want cheap HDMI output (every plugNplay HDMI adapter for Wii is garbage) or actually want to play some WiiU games. The original Wii is just a better way to play Wii software.

Absolutely nothing. The only console I would even consider buying is the PS for the new samurai game. The problem then becomes that the PS controller is garbage.

Might have been interested in a Switch if it didn't have paid online, and I doubt that's going away from any modern console any time soon, given how everyone's adopted it as a mainline feature.

I mostly game on my PC. Bought a switch because I missed out on the Wii/WiiU stuff and there were some games I wanted to play from that era. I assumed the switch would mostly be a port machine so I figured there would be some way to play the old games I wanted plus new ones (XC2, Splat2, smash).

So far it's paid off even if I haven't gotten the ports I really want. Buying a switch for smash and splatoon was enough to make it worthwhile. The paid online is gay, but it's not like I also have a PS4/xbone so $20 a year is small enough for me not to care really.

This was a good move. No lie. The PC is a dead platform that is overrun by DRM and shitty ports.

You can say, "piracy" as a reason for still playing on PC, but what good is piracy if there are no decent games and mods are becoming a thing of the past?

The PC is dying as a gaming platform. The days of UT99 are far gone. Steam DRM rules the market and there's no choice but to accept digital distribution.

That depends on how shit your PC is. I played Wind Waker last year on an emulator and if your CPU&GPU can handle it you can make it look much better with Anti-Aliasing and Anisotropic filtering. I'm keeping my eyes out for a usb controller on sale for when my PC falls below req. specs for modern games again. You can also have a lot of fun with mods if you know which games has an active modding community.


I'll never buy a console while I have to buy a TV as well. I'll just play console games a decade after they come out on an emulator.

I would want it to be able to play good games that I cannot already play by owning a computer without any outside help except a disk

this is the sole function of a video game console, and frankly all but switch, and dubiously the switch at that since it has paid online and only a handful of good games, completely fails at

thats just to consider it though, in reality it needs a NUMBER of good games I want to play to be actually worth it, and ideally those games would be ones I could pick up cheap somehow

if it has more games I want to play then I have fingers (I have 9 fingers) then thats decent, if it has twice that and they are cheap, then thats actually approaching the same level of console viability as the last console I owned, which I considered shit and a general decline

360 and ps3 both used the more efficient Power processors apple used back in the day.

Then they all switched to x86. Now it's a really shitty PC for a shit price.

However I want Power CPUs for my desktop computer at a reasonable price.

They don't have all the garbage x86 has because it's not a superset of the Intel 8080 which was produced in fucking 1974. I want things to move on.

1. High quality low lag/latency back catalogues, the full back catalogue for the company's consoles. Games over 5 years old are never more than $15, 10 years $10, 15 years $5.

2. 1080p 60hz minimum. 1440p 100hz or more desired

3. Full mouse/KB support, with custom keylayouts.

4. AO rated games, which basically lack any censorship.

5. Game comes on a USB thumbdrive ROM thing, like a mini cartridge.

6. I can stick any HDD, Sata SSD, or NvME drive into it.

7. The next gen version will be totally compatible with everything from the current one.

8. All games have full demo mode for the first two hours, and can be returned if they suck.

9. I can sell my game if I want.

10. Console maker won't pull a Soyny and fuck up the games.

>What would it take you to buy a current-gen console you don't already currently own?

Depends on the library and how many personal compromises I'd have to take in order to enjoy it.

I went full PCfag in 1996 after the N64 was such a colossal fucking disappointment. I did a little console gaming when over at friends' houses, but nothing really made me want to get a console even then. Though playing MGS1 for the first time was pretty fucking magical.

The current generation was worse than the ones previously. The only interesting stuff seems to be on the Switch, but I'm not throwing down $300 for a machine that only has like, five worthwhile games. Though I might consider it if the new Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing turn out to be pretty good.

357f30  No.16109422





Totally natural!



Stop going to cuckchan/reddit and enjoy a good game with mods that can make the game have more variety or even improve the already great gameplay.

For example, playing REmake2 with an FPS POVgives variety to the game and removing the god awful vignette effect the retards forced down peoples throats improves the games visuals and gameplay.

What the image is trying to convey is scalability and long term positives.

I've seen it a couple times outside of browser games. It's very rare. I'm surprised Steam didn't push for that when they tried to do SteamOS.




That said, gen Z grew up on the tail-end of split-screen, if they played it at all. A lot of multiplayer games began dropping it in favor of online with strict 1 person per console. Not to mention more of them grew up (or are growing up) playing casual mobile shit. It's mostly gen Y and maybe the younger part of gen X that played split-screen.

>Split screen sucked

Yeah, you lost a lot of visibility or had to deal with friends screen-looking (or screen-cheating, I heard it called a lot of different things) but it was a quick and easy way to play with friends on 1 console. No additional set up required other than connecting a few more controllers. If anything, I miss the ease of getting a multiplayer game set up as easily as that. You also didn't have to worry about online servers ever going down. I'm more disappointed about losing LAN than split-screen. Split-screen has been slowly fading away aside from Nintendo games, but LAN is practically dead on consoles. Even PC games aren't supporting it as much as they used to back in the 90s/early 00s.

What about an original Xbox? There's no good emulation for it yet and it was pretty easy to softmod. It's not hard to upgrade to a bigger hard drive either if you have a toaster with IDE support.
