THIS is what inevitably killed consoles, NOT exclusives.

THIS is what inevitably killed consoles, NOT exclusives.

I figured this out when the only argument PC have against conslops is that "well, at least I don't have to pay for online LMAO!" because even if you bought both an Xbox and a PlayStation right this second it will still be cheaper than a PC, but because of paid online it's actually MORE expensive along the line. If Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo had free online, consoles wouldn't be in the declining path they have been since the release of paid online. Xbox LIVE Gold fricked everything up because PS3 had free online but they followed Xbox' example and look how that turned out for them. Free online is the only way to bring consoles back.

      They truly were. I remember trying to unlock all the helmets for my avatar when Halo Reach released. Not sure if Miis have a similar system where you can unlock game specific items for your avatar/mii but that shit was badass, hip and cool.

    So not the ability to mod your games
    or being able to play in any frame rate or resolution you want
    at any graphical setting you want
    or emulating nearly anything you want
    or having superior versions of games over console counterparts, Dragon Age Origins for example
    No the only argument for having a pc over consoles was "lel online is free"
    You honestly so moronic its almost adorable

      None of that shit matters to a console player you dipshit. Your naivete is even cuter than my supposed stupidity. Modding is cool though, but that alone had no rela impact on the sales of consoles.

      Settings for video games really never fricking mattered either, we never gave a shit and neither do they now. Unless it's for a system like the Switch, video games always looked good and fine enough, there was no real need. Also emulation no one gives a frick about, sorry.

          I have you a valid reply. No one cares why you chose a PC over a consoles or vice versa, what I made this thread for was to tell you that as a console pleb for over 20 years, those things you stated were never really a thing we gave a frick about BESIDES modding, modding is cool as hell and I mod mostly every game I can now.

          My main satement was about pricing and how a console would be less expensive than a PC, more attractive and will benefit them greatly up to the point of literally reviving them if having to pay for online died. The Nintendo Switch is literal prove that exclusives, graphic settings and mods aren't really a selling point but something that is COOL.

      "You want" as if everyone has the budget to build a PC with comparable specs to a XSX/PS5. "If you have the budget" is the correct answer, moron.

        A PC with comparable specs to the current consoles can easily be had for the cost of one.

    Both an Xbox and Playstation comes out to be about $1,000.
    Not only is it more expensive, but the PC is more useful than a console because it can be used for more than just games and shittier versions of apps you have to use with a controller.

      It was completely true for me; the moment even Nintendo jumped into the paid online bandwagon was the moment I stopped buying multiplayer-focused console games and sold out Splatoon 2 to someone else. If someone expects me to charge me twice my Intenter connection to play online, if it is about peer-to-peer multiplayer you lost me.

    I'm surprised this wasnt a wake up call CLEARLY people are more likely to spend money on a truely free to play game then they are a game they have to pay a subscription for. I guess maybe they would lose money on people that only play online games with little to no micro transactions but that's just being greedy

    It doesn’t even make any sense for Xbox to still have paid online anymore. Their whole strategy and messaging now is “play anywhere”. “All our games are on pc day one, play where you want, and how you want it” yet pcgays can play the exact same games as Xbros without any kind of paywall to online gaming. The core consumers who are the biggest fans and bought the console have to pay extra while someone who probably doesn’t give a shit about Xbox and just wants to pay Halo doesn’t. That’s asinine. They must know a lot of the bullshit they’ve been doing would be forgiven if they just removed paid online so hopefully it happens
