Sony doing serious fucking work in the European console market!
Sony ain’t shying away from bragging about their so-far dominance of this current generation. Dropping a hurricanrana factoid like this. Apparently 1/3 of the PS4 install base was an Xbox or NintendoWiWi owner in their previous console-generation-iteration, and didn’t own a PS4.
Outside of debating “Metallica or Megadeth?”, the biggest source of contention in my adolescence was what console was superior. Now as a spoiled douchebag, I always owned all of them. Thanks Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, and shitty teenager jobs! But it was furious!, fun!, meaningless, and now a couple of lads are bringing that clash to the screen.
It’s been rumored for a while that Amazon was hankerin’ to dip its toes into the console waters. And why wouldn’t it? Every prominent corporation these days seems to want to dominated moar markets always! Or perhaps in an ideal world all markets alwayz! So Amazon buying an gaming studio? Smacks of a logical progression for the CorpoGiant.
Woof! Like five fucking months since we cut the last podcast. Like two weeks since we recorded this new one. Listen, I work with assholes. What do you want with me? That’s neither here nor there. On the podcast: butt play, the console wars, Bateman’s gastric band, Thor, bathroom breaks, Smaug, swearing, caffeine, Star Wars talk (of course) and more.
Let’s fucking do this!
Valve gives no fucks about the upcoming wave of consoles. Or rather, they’re seemingly swinging at the knees of said consoles. They’ve revealed a Steam OS, and it is a safe bet it shall be powering whatever the fuck they’re dropping on our living rooms.
How long until this Microsoft’s stance on this is rolled back? It seems like a swaying song and dance at this point. Sony unleashes a feature for free. Microsoft charges for it. We all gnash our teeth. Said feature becomes available for free on the XBONE.
