So, no doubt even non-gamers have heard the fuss about the new gaming consoles coming out this month. It’s the first new console generation when I have had no desire to buy any of the new consoles. Here’s why:
- Here is a screenshot of Madden 98 on the PS1.
- Madden 2003, on the PS2. A big improvement, no?
- Madden 2009, on the PS3, another big improvement.
- Madden 25 on the PS4. Not really that different from 2009.
Now, graphics aren’t all that matters, and if there were a good launch title–say, a Fallout 4, made by Obsidian–on these consoles, I would likely get one. But there isn’t. All there is is Madden and Call of Duty: Ghosts. (So named, I assume, because everyone is a ghost after all the apocalyptic world wars depicted in previous Calls of Duty.)
I am not seeing any reason to upgrade.
