Exactely what i think.
First, i know i'm not the target audience anymore. I don't like and i haven't got the time to invest 30+ hours in a simple action game (assassin's creed comes to mind).
And i already use my pc/steambox as my media/entertainment center + gaming rig. Like i said, with 2 Dualshock3's on PC + hdmi output to my tv + steam big picture, i don't feel like i am missing out on much. Yes there's some exclusive games i'm missing, but really, fuck that. I already have more than i can play, i have like.. 10+ games i bought on steam that i haven't even installed. So why bother with some exclusive game that is a re-hash of something else?
I'll miss playing some of Nintendo IP's, because i grew up on those, same as SEGA making Sonic a Nintendo exclusive, sorry, this is still a mind-blowing sentence.
But yeah, fuck Sony and fuck Microsoft. I haven't bought a PS3/360, so i can easily pass on PS4/1.
Now, i MIGHT pickup a used Wii-U eventually, IF there's any good Metroid for it. Otherwise, i will just play through SuperMetroid again.
