Yes, I'm aware the following article can or can not be based completely on bias.
So despite all the extreme consumer backlash regarding the Xbox One I've been hearing about from nearly all of my video gaming compatriots I go to school with, no one seems to be saying they'll purchase a PlayStation 4.
Why do you complain about getting fucked in the ass so much but still pay a giant burly man four hundred ninety nine dollars to do it?
Halo. I've never seen such voracious brand loyalty since the release of the iPhone 5. The fan commitment to Halo has been astronomically huge, people have been buying the books and following fan created media since its release on the original Xbox, and now it seems that Steven "Highest Bidder" Spielberg is going to make the fans crave even more. This 1984-esque machine that's committing the used games genocide is receiving sales based on the fact it has one game. Halo 4 honestly wasn't even that good, even my Halo crazy friends agree with me. Shouldn't you be loyal to Bungie, the people to created it, not Microsoft, the people who are selling it?
In my own defense, anyone who knows me knows that I'm a huge fan of Deus Ex: Human Revolutions; it was my favorite game of 2011 before I started playing Dark Souls in 2012, and when the Director's Cut of the game got announced I had all but guaranteed Square Enix my money. When I heard it was only coming out for WiiU, did I rush to my local retailer to buy the console, or else be deprived of muh Deus Ex? No, I sucked it up and realized I'd much rather look at the consoles as a whole then buy the WiiU specifically for Deus Ex.
When the drooling masses stop listening to Microsoft's puppet show in which the skull of Bungie is used as a hand-puppet spitting shitty one liners like Rodney Halo-field, please tell me.
