Are you loyal to console brands?

117 posts in this topic

Kind of, but not really. I probably won't switch to Nintendo, because their games are overpriced and their third party support is shit, and I can't afford a good PC. That being said, the only thing that would stop me from switching to a superior console is the time I've put into buying games & earning trophies on PS4.

 

But I most certainly don't trust Sony - they're a greedy corporation like any other. It would actually be nice if either Nintendo or Microsoft became a more serious competitor to keep Sony from getting complacent.

Ehh... kind of.

 

I really enjoy collecting trophies on my profile, so I don't see myself jumping ship anytime soon.

 

I do own a Switch, but it rarely gets used despite me always having a good time when I do use it. I will say that the Switch will be incredibly handy for someone who is thinking about getting into more Japanese games in the future (seriously Sony, quit pushing away your Japanese audience).

Nope, doesn't see any reason why I should be loyal to any of those platforms, just playing on whichever I can get my hands on.

After gaming for over 30 years from the Atari 2600, NES, Sega Mega Drive, PC, PS1 - PS5 & Psp + Vita, im now comfortably a so called Sony Loyal Fanboy. I dont take the Fanboy moniker very seriously but at the same time as has been mentioned in a similar wavelength on this thread, First Party Exclusives coupled with Strong SIngle Player narrative based games in the action adventure genre have made me stick to the Playstation brand. 

 

Also importantly, adulting, having a kid really limits time to game and here i am constantly crossing off the never ending backlog of games i have without playing them just to make time for the absolute most important IP's push me further to comfortably be happy with just buying Playstation console's and their stellar 1st to 2nd party Exclusive games.

I've always had a Playstation, that's for sure when it comes to home consoles. However, for handhelds it was always Nintendo. I did have a PSP and have a Vita at the moment, but I think in the world of handhelds Nintendo kicks Sony out of the ocean. However, home consoles are always Sony, I could never go over to Microsoft so yes, I would say I am brand loyal. I enjoy my vita as well, but for handhelds I always preferred chill games like pokemon and harvest moon rather than RPGs or other games that require more time/concentration, so that's why I go for Sony for RPGs.

Sony hasnt disappointed me so far with their consoles and exclusives. 90% of what I want to play and am interested in is available on their consoles, and I do enjoy trophy hunting as well. Even if microsoft were to have some killer games, I wouldnt jump ship over it...get an xbox? sure, maybe, but I wouldnt give up my PS for it. Just comfortable with the platforms, UIs, product, etc.

Nope, I've had PS1, PS2, PS3, Xbox, X360, NES, Wii, Sega Saturn and currently have PS4 and Xbox One. Plan is to get both PS5 and Series X whenever it's possible to buy them.

used to be loyal to sony. but not anymore.. they have lost their way a bit, arrogant, stupid the whole fake woke middle marketting bs aswel, censorship it literally betrays what sony set out to do with the original playstation, games for adults.

 

companies are *just* whores. and will whore themselves out to what will pay them the most, so to answer the question, nowadays fuck no.

I stick to Playstation, but that's by preference not fanboyism. In my younger days though I played on whatever I could get my hands on.

I have to admit trophy hunting does play a role as well.

For me I play on everything but if im hunting for achievements it's playstation first purely for the plat. I prefer gamerscore over silver/bronze/gold but there is no real motivation  to 100% a game on pc or xbox.  Until xbox adds some kind of 100% game reward I will continue making playstatiom my achievement hunting preference

Not really, I started with PC and N64, my favorite console as a kid was PS2. I owned an original XBox but wasn't a fan of the Monster Energy green UI, lost interest in Nintendo after the Wii. I've liked Sony consoles over the years because of their sleek black designs, but I think the PS5 is hideous and I'm hoping they release a slim model eventually.

Yes, absolutely.  Playstation all the way.  Deeply invested in their 1st party titles and of course the trophy system.  And with some form of backwards compatibility coming, that only adds to it.

 

Sony would really have to screw the pooch for me to switch at this point (very unlikely).

 

EDIT - I don’t consider myself a fanboy either.  I realize 90+% of the gaming between XBox and Playatstion is nearly identical.  If I had started with Xbox, I probably stay with them but for obvious reasons (aforementioned Sony’s 1st party titles and games having a platinum to show completion), I am glad I didn’t.

 

 

This would be my answer, with one small exception. I was staying at my brother's house in London in 2012 and was working. The Internet went down and I literally couldn't do any more work so I decided to play on his Xbox until the Internet came back on again.

 

Except I couldn't. Without the Internet, none of the games would play. It was the most stupid thing I have ever seen and put me off Xbox for life. I know MS doesn't do that anymore, but I'm too invested in PS now to ever want to make a move.

 

The only time I would ever consider buying an Xbox would be if I could get a really cheap one second hand so I could play Witcher 2. Yes, I know I could play it on PC but I spend most of my day working on a computer, so the last thing I want to do is continue using a computer when all I want is to collapse on the sofa and play some comfy console vidya.

I like PlayStation, but I want to play Xbox exclusives like Halo, Gears of War,  Crackdown, etc. But Halo is now on Steam, which is a plus, but my PC is bricked.  But Nintendo side if stuff, Mario Kart and Smash Bros are my favorite Nintendo franchises.

Since console exclusivity is dead for anything but Nintendo, I am voting for them with my wallet.

Everything else will be on PC, eventually.

I used to be a super xbox fan (mostly because my oldest brother never let me play his PS1 and PS2)...but I grew up and started to expand my play.

I can't name 1 Nintendo exclusive I want to play and for Xbox there's only Forza for me. I'm sticking with Playstation for the exclusives and my trophies are here. I've owned over a dozen different consoles until the PS3 launched but now it's all Playstation in my future.
