Maybe it’s just me but Sony kicked the crap out of Microsoft.  I’ve always liked the Playstation better than the XBox but man oh man the games just look so much more fun on Playstation.  And it’s cheaper?!  Sign me up.  I could care less that it doesn’t come with the “eye motion” thing and the XBox One comes with Kinnect.  I just want “old school” gaming on the controller.  It’s great they give you the option, unlike Microsoft.

Congrats Microsoft…although am I the only one who doesn’t understand why the XBox is so popular?  XBox has few exclusive games.  PlayStation has a lot more exclusives that are unique.  I don’t know, I’ve always been a PlayStation fan but I guess if you are a die hard Halo fan, you have to get the XBox.  Which is another thing, why is Halo any better than any other shooter?  I mean it’s fun but PlayStation has good shooters as well.  Is this just me here?

I’m really quite surprised this hasn’t happened yet.  We pretty much all are ok with this on the PC side with Steam.  You can’t trade/sell/buy used games on Steam.  You buy digitally and download it.  It’s tied to you.  It makes sense for many reasons: it’s easy, it prevents piracy, and it kills the used game market…which nobody makes money on besides the places that buy/sell the used games in the first place like Gamestop.  It makes no sense to me why we still have physical discs anyways.  Just go all digital.

With that said, I purposely buy used console games.  Why?  I don’t have a powerful enough gaming PC and I save money by buying used games since I play games usually years after they are released anyways.  But I would understand if this goes away in the future.  As long as the prices go down the older the game is (like it already does anyways, although not as fast and as low as used), it won’t be so bad.

Can’t wait to see what is in store for the Playstation 4.  While I just barely finally caught up to playing Playstation 2 games, I am still interested.  What’s nice about being so behind playing games is that I can buy them for cheap by the time I get around to playing them and never have to pay $60 a pop!
