This Friday, the 22nd of November has been a long awaited day for alot of gamers out there! Could this day lead to the end result of the next-gen console wars, could the next installment in the Mario franchise help sell more WiiU’s, is the next Zelda gonna be just as good as the original…
Theses are all questions that I am sure are plaguing many minds as we enter the almost 24 hrs to go mark. I for one have already dived head first as last Friday I enjoyed tremendously walking out of my game store of choice just a few minutes after midnight with my glorious new PS4 in hand, I decided that this time around they were the one that I would support in this latest edition of console wars. My house has always been a multi console friendly home not really giving anyone any extra love than what was deserved (except Nintendo, they don’t count, they will have my love until my fingers are no longer able to grasp a controller!). But this time I have said no, no to the crappy marketing schemes, no to the massive drone-tastic consumerism, and no to a company that is paying its interns to try and sabotage the competition because they are afraid there product might not be as good. I don’t want my machine to be an all in wonder box, I don’t want it to be focused on social networking and I definitely don’t want it to be more concerned with TV than my TV is, what I want is a solid GAMING console! One that I can sit back and enjoy for hours until the little pinky on my left hand goes numb (that actually happens sometimes), if it can do all the extra stuff like stream Netflix and Hulu thats awesome too but its main function, the whole reason I pre-ordered and waited patiently in line at midnight was to play video games. Sometimes I wonder if in the zeal to stay relevant and keep up with the competition some of these companies have forgotten that one simple fact, from someone that owns a tablet too that is not where I want to spend hours gaming.
So for me, this Friday I will not be skipping to my car with an XBOXone in hand, I’ve already decided who won for me, but I tell you one thing… I will definitely be skipping to my car with the latest entry into the amazing world that is The Legend of Zelda! May the best machine win!
