I'm a bit bored and the forum needs more threads, so going to try to make a decent one. Let's share our opinions on the current gen + PC. I can already smell some trolls but should be a fun discussion regardless. So...
Wii U: This isn't Nintendo's best console, even Iwata admitted this. Third party support is dead and it even lacks many first-party titles, and some of them aren't even big hits. (Mario Part 10 for example)
But it does have really good first-party titles like Bayonetta 2, Zelda Musou, Captain Toad, Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros. Wii U, and arguably Kirby: The Rainbow Curse. It was fun but not my type of game.
To me, the Wii U is like a side-kick. It's a great companion to your PS4, Xbox One, and PC but as a hardcore gamer, it doesn't satisfy. It's definitely a must get system.
Nintendo Network is barebones.
PS4: Being a PC Gamer, I personally got it for the exclusives. It has quality titles, like Bloodborne. For multi-plats, factually, its the best "console" for it. So if I wasn't gaming on PC, the PS4 would do the job.
It has a big library of titles like Samurai Warriors 4, Akiba's Trip 2 (until it releases on Steam), One Piece Pirate Warriors 3 (until it releases on Steam), God Eater 2, Dragon Quest Heroes. Infamous Second Son, Infamous First Light, Bloodborne, Driveclub, Guilty Gear Xrd, LittleBigPlanet 3, Senran Kagura Estival Versus, The Order 1886, The Last of Us, Samurai Warriors 4-II, and Omega Quintet. Probably forgetting a few. (excluding the gimmick bs)
It has the most games I am interested in, so it's definitely my favorite consoles. Sadly, unlike past generations, Japanese developers are more opened about making games on PC so owning a PS4 for me is becoming moot. Regardless I am happy with my purchase tho since I can still enjoy most games I am interested in. And in the case of games like One Piece Pirate Warriors 3, I can enjoy the Japanese version on PS4 before getting the North American version on PC.
PSN is okay though. Shouldn't be a paid service though.
Xbox One: Unlike the Xbox 360, the Xbox One is the inferior system when it comes to multiplats. It has a handful of games exclusives D4 (it counts until its officially released on PC). Killer Instinct, Halo MCC,, Forza 5, and Forza Horizon 2. It also Halo 5 and Phantom Dust. Probably forgetting a few. (excluding the Kinect bs)
Chaos;child can count until the PS4 version is out. Psycho Pass and Rise of the Tomb Rider until the inevitable PC/PS4 versions are announced.
Obviously it deserves second place in the console market. It isn't better than the PS4 but it is better than the Wii U, in the scenario that you can only get one system that is.
Sadly Halo MCC is still broken, even the tournament had to be cancelled.
Sadly, with Windows 10 being cross-buy with Xbox One, the system may lose exclusives, so there could potentially be less games to play on the system. Microsoft isn't stupid though, Halo 5 will remain an Xbox One exclusive.
Xbox Live, just like PSN, isn't worth the money.
PC: Best Graphics. Best Performance. Mods. Longevity. You aren't tied to use one service (you are free to use Steam, Origin or uPlay). It's free.
PC is more affordable nowadays. If you can afford a PS4 or Xbox One, or even BOTH and blindly pay for PSN or Xbox Live every year, then you have no excuse not to game on a PC, tbh. If you're the US, that is. Unless you have friends that only game on console then that's cool.
Forum needs threads.
PC > PS4 > Xbox One > Wii U
Wii U is a must get console and a great companion for the other three.
