    Once upon a time, I was part in this "Console War" you speak of. Such chaotic nonsense. So many fires started because of one appearance or another. Nowadays, I just lay back and think how silly it all was. It doesn't matter anymore. Just let players be players. Especially with things like "crossplay" being a thing.

    What side of the war was I on? Well, that is an easy answer. Whatever side Sony wasn't! *Chuckles like an old man*
    *Eerie music begins playing*
    *Slowly turns to silently staring into emptiness with disgust of the actions committed*
    Let it go, Marvel.....let it go....
    *Big sigh, laughs*
    Those therapy lessons worked after all! Ahahaha!

    True, but I’ve never seen a rivalry as potential worrying and troubling as the video game console wars. I bough cross play might unite people, but here’s we are...

    I’d hate to be an individual who actively praises one company, and constantly discredits another company, sometime even for no reason.

    Also, I’m surprised people keep on getting upset over predictions that they’ve hyped up to a point where they believe it to be true, despite having no weight. I mean, I know want a new Fable games, Skate 4, or a Mother 3 port, but you’ll have to wait for the right moment for them to be announced. Creating video games is not an easy or straight forward process. It takes time and effort.

    Everyone wants to feel like they are on a winning side of something. I am not a big fan of Microsoft and to be fair nothing they showed as exclusive has changed my mind. But, to each their own in the end everyone wants to play a game and we all wanna enjoy our time playing it.

    Also, I am always happy to see a company in anything I enjoy bring new stuff to the table, if it was one on top of a mountain then we would not have the innovation or reason to explore new ways of doing things. Competition is always good for the customer no matter what side you choose, if you even choose a side...

    That said I cannot wait to play cyberpunk, the elden ring game looks like a cool concept. And while I am not a person who is big on the series that flight simulator looked gorgeous.

    I am gonna try to see bethesda before I gotta head to bed for work, ubi will hopefully drop something interesting tomorrow. Nintendo is where I feel most of my hype is at currently.

    I agree with your points. Especially with how if we had a company monopolies the video game industry it would be a disaster. Competition can lead to innovation, and creativity.

    I mean, that’s possibly why Microsoft decided to eventually add the ability to stream games from the consoles; to compete with Google Stadia and maybe add extra pressure on them.

    I’m definitely going to pick up CyberPunk 2077. I was already sold on the game due to its setting, but Keanu Reeves add extra value tomthat

    Side note, with the next generation coming next year, I wonder how Nintendo will keep up? The Switch can compete with the PS4 and Xbox One, but with the PS5 and Project Scarlet coming next year, what will they do?

    I'm sure Nintendo already has their next console in the planning phase.

    What that next console will be is anyone's guess, but they're next move will probably build on the Switch.

    Man between starting with fallout76 and everyone cheering, then going in to the mobile game, what a terrible conference.

    Blades on Switch? Interesting...

    My phone can handle the game, but I’m interested with playing the game with actual controllers.

    Nice to see this company still supporting the device.

    Imagine if they talked about Doom Eternal at the end? It is their biggest announcement after all...

    I hope to hear about it soon.

    Also, another battle royal mode for Fallout 76...hmm...

    Ghostwire Tokyo looks pretty interesting. It’s also funny imagining the folks at Tango Softworks going to see Avengers Endgame and yelling “son of a bitch!” in the theater when Hawkeye first showed up considering how similar their game looks
