The Glory Days of Gaming
Remember the early- to mid-90’s? Back when Mario rained supreme and the only add-on you had to worry about was an RCA cable if you had a fancy new TV? Don Reisinger has a great article on CNET pointing out the problems with gaming today:
[T]oday we’re neck-deep in an environment where it’s becoming too confusing to buy a video game console. There are: four Xbox 360 options (five if you count the Halo 3 console), four Playstation 3 consoles, and (luckily) just one Wii.
Now, for those of us who are tech-savvy and know how the world of gaming works, we obviously know what we want before we head to the stores to buy a console. But what about those people that don’t read CNET and don’t spend their time rummaging through tech news and columns? To them, it’s confusing. And if you ask me, it only hurts business.
