Thought it is a rumor still, it would suck if this always on shit is true, i happen to share a net connection with a few roommates and our ISP caps us monthly, sometimes to prevent going over the cap i disconnect the internet to prevent anyone of us to go over the cap. If i have to do this with an always online console. That means i won't be able to play the console for a few days till the monthly cap gets reset!

Caps/pay-as-you go definitely has plenty of problems. The advertising crap becomes doubly irritating. There is no AdBlock for non-jailbroken iOS devices, so all of a sudden, I was not only having my time (forced to view ads/etc.) taken from me, I was actually paying for ads (as I was on metered plan with refills for a while). What a joke. The pay-as-you go thing I had was a temporary solution to not having Internet, but still.

I remember when you said this about Diablo III:

So let's recap. PC game comes out that forces online play. Unjustifiable.
Console might be online only. *Meh*, who cares.

Right now, we are speculating a rumor. There is evidence that this rumor might be true. You're being a biased troll. Stop.

Hage,

Apparently you took your retard pills today. Clearly in Page 6 of this wonderful forum I said this:

And there is nothing biased about discussing the effects of something that could or couldn't happen. Its called a discussion. So instead of trying to point out something that you are clearly wrong about, maybe you should stop.

Here is another wonderful example of myself saying that I dont agree with the actions. Do you need anymore evidence of how dumb you actually are? I mean, I could keep pointing this out for you. Its quite easy at this point.

But again, I do not agree with them. I dont think I could make this any clearer. Just because it wont effect me, I dont agree with it. I find it exploiting their customers and really limiting their market. Not to mention all the things that the consumer of the product might face.

Online only console isn't "not a good idea." It's a terrible one. And maybe it won't come to fruition. But you can't crucify people for saying so while simultaneously maintaining the opinion that on other mediums its justifiably rage inducing. Don't get mad that I pointed out your flip flop.

Is online only a good idea or a bad idea. Let's hear your opinion. No caveats.

What flip flop? There is no flip flop. I dont agree with it on either occasion. Just because it wont effect me doesn't take away from that opinion.

I mean, I could easily point this out.

Diablo 3 always online - doesn't effect me, still stupid idea
Xbox whatever always online - doesn't effect me, still stupid idea.

The fact that I had to write that out for you because you can't clearly read should really make you feel stupid. There was never any kind of flip flopping.

As for online only, I couldn't be any clearer about this. TO have an online only platform isn't a good idea. You limit your market, you have the chance your product doesn't work effectively 100 percent of the time due to internet outages. Not to mention you have the potential of some stupid consumer buying it before reading the box and complaining and then you have a PR problem. Because lets face the facts here, Americans love to bitch about stuff. Its apparent even on this forum.

So here is your clean cut answer on both fronts.

Always online console: Bad idea to all
The effect of it to me: Very minimal.

You cant wait to buy something that you believe is based on a bad idea?

You embody everything that is wrong with gaming today.

Why is that?

I find that no matter what they feature, or dont, the Xbox offers me the more bang for my buck. I have a better overall experience with the Xbox than my PS3.

Just because I dont agree with something they may or not do, that has no effect on me is irrelevant. It doesn't effect me so why should that go against my overall decision about what console to buy.

I actually felt that the PS4 presentation was very lacking and I dont see have the shit they announced being supported, or even seeing the light of day. Much like their super retarded magic book that they announced.

So really, what is so bad about my decision about getting the best product for me? I am not hurting you by any regard.

And the funny thing is, no one has brought up the fact that if you dont set up steam to offline mode, you can't play your games. Kind of ironic that a bunch of PC gamers are bitching about something they already in body. Sure, you can turn it off and what not, but its very funny how the irony is right there staring at you in the face, that in many ways, you could say that the PC community started this.

So really, if you think I am everything that is wrong with the gaming community, maybe you should take a step back and realize where all the problems originated or were conceived.

If I like something and it appeals to me, I'm going to buy it; I'm not going to refrain from it because of what other people think. Apply this logic to politics. Are you not going to vote for the person who has YOUR best interests at heart? But this isn't a fucking war we need to protest here. You people with this "You should be a gaming martyr" attitude are pitiful.

"If you buy this, you are contributing to something bad, wah wha!" Hey... fuck you, how's that? If you like and want something, buy it. To hell with people like you with your cynical attitudes. Boo fucking hoo.


And this is coming from a person who hates this and hopes the next MS system crashes, burns and runs them out of the console business. So the way I see it, you calling someone else biased? Pure irony.

He never said he was biased. He clearly focused more on his ignorant "I'm gonna buy a 4th Iphone and vote for the socialist" attitude. lol.

So I have to admit to being biased for anything to matter, or to justify my decision of what and what I am not going to purchase. Thats cute, especially coming from a individual that makes very biased comments about things he doesnt play.

I know come 3 years from now, I will have both a PS4 and what ever the next xbox is called. I can at least admit to that because both consoles offer something the other cant. Xbox is where my friends are at and where I prefer to spend my time, due to many circumstances as a better overall online experience. Not to mention that I feel (biased here I guess so you are aware) that FPS' have a far greater natural feel on the xbox than the ps.

But lets face the facts, the PS console will always appeal to me because of their Japanese market of games, and their RPG collection, many games the Xbox could only dream about getting. And frankly something that this current gen really fucked up on, but I have my theories about that and one that would totally derail this amazing thread about two stupid idiots not following a simple conversation that is pretty clear cut.

Now, back to the biasedness I guess you would say. We dont know a fucking thing at this point. Much like before the PS4 announcement. And frankly, one of their core features (the share button) will need the internet to use. And I am surprised you dont bring that up. Sure it doesn't effect you playing your games online, but if they button it on their freaking controller, one would lead you to believe that, going online is a major feature of any product coming out. And again, do you know for certain that the Xbox needs an always online connection? No you do not.

So again, just because these rumors are coming out, nothing would stop me from purchasing one. I have had discussions about what console I would buy with many different parties, like my current girlfriend, who also is a major gamer, to my family, to my friends. And the overall general consensus is that, Xbox offers me the greatest value.

Now, you could find for yourself that the PS4 offers you that, and that is great. So as a fellow gamer, I would suggest you buy that. I wouldnt' want you to own something that has no value to you. There is no biasedness here. At the end of the day, Saintblitzkrieg in the mother fucking amazing flesh I have is a freaking gamer. I will own both consoles. Maybe both on day 1. Who the hell knows, but I do know, I will own both at some point. And if one day, if one day the PC can offer me everything I want, I will do that as well. Because I am a gamer and I do what is best for me, because frankly, there is a millions of other people that will do the best for them.

Now look, if I didn't buy their console it wouldn't matter much at the end of the day, why, because I am just 1 person. 1. Not 1 million, one. So I say fuck it, I am still buying. Just like the kids that buy the map packs for cod. At the end of the day, they still get their money. Maybe not from me, or you, but there is a thousands of newer games all the time that will buy it.

The people that grew up on Atari, Nintendo and all of that jazz, we are a dying freaking breed. Look at us. I have been gaming the vast majority of my damn life. Helped me through a lot of fucking shit. Childhood problems, parental problems, high school, and adult things as well. 20 plus years, and people like me, that knew about shit way back when, we are dying breed. The sooner you realize that the good ole days are never coming back, the better. Because if you fucking dont you will be left behind. Better to get over yourself and start experiences the things that deem good for yourself rather than the good for the majority. Because the majority that you think you are in, you aren't, because the majority is moving on.

I may not always agree with you, but seriously... the state of this forum is the worst I can recall seeing it. It's full of self-centered, cynical people that complain about EVERYTHING and are so audacious they have the nerve to tell you what you should and shouldn't buy. You're the epitome of opinionated when you're telling people what they should and shouldn't do with their hard-earned money.

If you like something and you really want to buy it, buy it; fuck what anybody thinks. What I think about the current state of games is irrelevant; it's not my place to tell you such things.

No one will ever agree on everything 100 percent of the time, and I understand that, but at the end of the day, we are all gamers. I will not judge someone on what they play. We have our guilty pleasures, the games we are embarrassed about admitting to liking, and the things we are truly passionate about.

The thing about me, I am passionate about gaming as a whole, and I will never have someone else's opinion change what I buy, and how I buy it. I have more respect for individuals when they can objectively look outside of their comfort zone and objectively have a conversation. Most of the time, when I am here, I am the guy that is going the against the grain. Not because I agree with the things I say, its because I am trying to give individuals that can't see the other side, the other side of things.

I dont agree with going always online gaming. I dont. I see all the problems that are pretty clear cut and staring you in the face. But it wont stop me from purchasing it. If I had no friends, no one to game with, and I was a solo gamer mostly. I wouldn't purchase their product because it wouldn't have any advantages to me. But that isn't the case.

I will admit, part of my decision process had to do with the amount of my friends purchasing what console. But that was only one of the many aspects of this decision. And really, I dont have to sit here and explain them or justify them. Its my purchase. My decision on what I want to play. Not Popes, not Hage's, no one's but mine. Just like voting.

So, I challenge Pope, and I challenge Hage, and I challenge everyone that will ever read this. Instead of always seeing the bad in things like this, try to see the good. Look outside your comfort zone, and see why them might be doing this. Instead of jumping on a bandwagon of hate. Instead of trying to say, so and so is wrong, try to have a conversation with them. Try to view a different avenue of thinking. Plays the devils advocate role for a change. Enlighten yourself. Look at the decisions being made as business decision.

I mean, business decisions purely went in the way the PS4 was constructed. Its very well documented that the PS3 lacks in the online aspect. The dashboard is clumsy and dated. Hard to use compared to the Xbox. Loading times are pathetic and we can go on and on and on about this. So they took all of that feed back, and said, we need to fix this.

Their interface, looks fresh and new. They added online support with their share button, they are trying to make their dashboard, from the looks of it more like Xbox Live. They are trying to improve their online experience, so you purchase their product. It makes sense. Now, the question that should be asked is, did they improve their console in the sense of making games for it.

You go back to this gen and most developers stated that the Xbox was way easier to work with compared to the PS3, and what was going on in most cases, was you would have games built on the Xbox and ported to the PS3. Therefore, all that hardware in the PS3 was useless. All those multi platform games, had to run on both consoles therefore one couldn't be superior to the other. So will the PS4 improve on this? If they do, and their online stays free, and their interface and complete online experience changes, I have no issue purchasing their product, and frankly it would speed up the tendency of purchase.

Now, I know I will never ever agree with everyone on all topics. But I just want it stated, that I am passionate about this media, and I do care, and not just this asshole. Like I said, this media, has been a big part of my life through some very dark days. And some very bright ones too. And just because I fight, and just because I go against the grain, doesn't mean I dont want what is best, but at the same time, I will never ever allow someone else to dictate what I purchase, because at some point, I will buy every consoles, with the games I want to.
